While I love going to conferences and festivals and gatherings and such, at a certain point I think to myself, “This is great and all, but there’s a lot of work that I’d like to get done. I have some projects that I believe in that need my energy and focus. I can only have fun and learn and network so much.”
So I started thinking, how can we both put ourselves in an environment where we meet awesome people, learn how to get better, have fun, but spend the majority of the time doing our work?
How can we use the energy of being around other lifestyle entrepreneurs to encourage us and help us do our own work?
What I’m interested in experimenting with is bringing together a group of hustlin’ badasses for a small time, anywhere from a day to a month, where we encourage each other to hustle, but also create the space to connect, help each other with our projects and have fun.
My ideas are:
1 Day Events
(I live in Boulder, so these take place here.)
We meet somewhere with good wifi and jam from 9-12pm. Then we break for lunch for an hour or two and meet back up for another 3-5 hours of hustle. Afterwards we can go out for dinner and some drinks. Feel free to come and go as you please.
3 Day Events
(These will happen in Boulder)
3 days would be similar to single day events but will be for people who want to hustle on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I’m thinking it might be better to have slightly less jam time and more time for hot seats, masterminds, and breakdowns.
5 Day, 7 Day, 14 Day Events??

30 Day Immersion
(These can happen anywhere in the world)
As entrepreneurs, our most important asset is our time. So how can we learn to be as efficient as possible?
Being as productive and efficient as possible stems from many things:
- Eating healthier
- Being more physically in shape
- Increasing our ability to focus
- Decreasing distractions and stress
- Spending time in nature
- Being in a supportive, inspiring and encouraging environment
- Meeting new awesome people who can help us with our business and vice versa
With 30 day immersions, we can start to play with what would our optimal lifestyle would be. We set ourselves up for success. We encourage each other to get better all the things that lead to a healthy, happy, productive and efficient life.
The main difference with the immersions is that we’ll schedule time for efficient exercise that targets the four areas of athleticism: strength, cardio, flexibility, and balance. As well as time for meditation and contemplation.
If you’ve struggled to maintain a strong work ethic, a good exercise regime, healthy eating, and/or a meditation practice, coming to these immersions will super charge you.
The above activities are what’s known as sharpening the knife. A smart person knows that spending a small amount of time sharpening a knife before using it will make everything much easier, quicker and more efficient.
A few hours a day sharpening the knife means you might get eight hours of work done in six hours (or whatever). But it’s not about just getting more work done, you’ll also feel better and enjoy life more.
During the immersions, we’ll also have plenty of time for masterminds, dissecting each other’s businesses and giving feedback, presenting on our areas of expertise as well as connecting and having fun.
