. You've got BIG IDEAS that scale way past your private practice but there is no time to think, create and implement. Instead you are mired in the details of running your business and you can't find room to do more. It's time to slow down, get away from it all, and take some time to refocus, create and build the next chapter in your business adventure. And you don't have to do it alone!
Spend 5 days on Lake Michigan, with meals catered, going on hike or paddleboarding, surrounded with other colleagues like you, who are successful but want more without having to keep working so hard.
You will be joined by the creator of Slow Down School, Joe Sanok, podcaster and private practice owner, who will take you through the steps of how to truly scale your practice from slowing things down, eliminating the unnecessary, creating and building something truly unique.
Other experts will be there helping you along. Kelly Higdon from ZynnyMe will provide consultation and help you with your personalized plan. Cupla Media will be on site to help with videos. Jaime Jay will provide help with your website. Meditate with Muse biofeedback headbands.
What would it mean to your business to take some time away to strategize with experts and to come back with a plan that doesn't involve doing more?
Here is what is included in your Slow Down School Experience
HAPPY HOUR KICK OFF
On Sunday, July 30th, you will arrive to your getaway location at the Leelanau School on Lake Michigan.Take a walk on the beach, enjoy the river, grab a bite to eat and just settle in. That night will be a VIP Dinner for the first 10 people to register and then the Kick-off Happy Hour for all.
PURGE + RELAX
The theme for the day is "slow down to purge" Times of silence, hikes, stand-up paddle boarding, and deep breathing will all be incorporated. As well, small sessions for slowing down will be incorporated. Phones will be off and we'll let our brains rest, while we connect with one another.
PRACTICE + REFRESH
The theme for the day is "practices." We will learn meditation from MUSE, participate in yoga, massage, and other practices. As well, we'll begin to foster sparks through improve and other activities to start linking ideas.Through the end of the day, we'll walk through how to identify boundaries and build on the sparks of the previous two days.
The theme of the day will be "sparks of innovation." National consultant, Kelly Higdon will be joining us for the rest of our time together to light up these ideas. What do you do when you have really big ideas? We'll walk through the Seven Practice of the Practice and how to plan, achieve, and outsource our goals. The afternoon will be for drafting plans for ideas. Also, Cupla Media will be recording promo videos for the Slow Down School VIP.
DAY 5 & 6
We will be doing group consulting in the mornings, participate in hot seats, and focus on big action. After lunch we will go wine tasting. During this time we'll taste at three wineries, have 1:1 consulting, and Q&A. Imagine yourself planning your next big idea with a glass of wine, with Kelly and Joe waitng to help you when you get stuck.
It's time to give hugs and say goodbye as you leave with more innovation and creativity all in a plan to take back to your business.
"As a practice owner and consultant, I always have a ton of ideas for what to do next - but RARELY make the time to sort through them all and figure out what to actually DO. I signed up for Slow Down School to give me the time and space I need to really nail down next steps for success. I'm so excited, because I KNOW that Kelly and Joe will help guide me in the right direction to take the next big leap with my business!"
Dr. Jeremy Sharp, Owner Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling and Host of the Testing Psychologist Podcast

Frequently Asked Questions
Let's talk about the nitty gritty!
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
Your experience includes accomodations and 3 meals per day for your entire stay. You will also have access to activities such as paddleboarding, hiking, ... without an additional charge. All of the consulting and training you will receive is included as well.
WHAT ARE ACCOMMODATIONS LIKE?
The Leelanau School is a boarding school that is right on Lake Michigan. They have a fire pit, river, huge dining hall, and world-class catering. The actual rooms are dorm style with twin beds. There is a shared bathroom. If you do not bring a family member, you will be paired up with a same-gender roommate. We will try to find someone who has similar goals to you, unless you know who you want to stay with. If ou want your own room, it is an additional $75/night charge.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
You will want to book your flights into Traverse City Airport (TVC). We will be arranging pick up from the airport or your can rent a car.
CAN I BRING MY FAMILY OR PARTNER?
Yes, yes, yes! It's hard enough to get away, let alone to try to manage kids or spend this much and not have your partner. The price for food and lodging per person is $700 for the entire conference or $400 if you are attending the 1/2 conference.
DO I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING?
No! This is about you learning to slow down to spark innovation. We want you to get the most out of this experience but we also want you to develop habits that will sustain you when you return back to your busy practice. You get to choose how much you do. We will also have scheduled down time for you to enjoy the beautiful grounds and beach.
ARE TICKETS REFUNDABLE OR TRANSFERRABLE?
Since we have to pay to book The Leelanau School so far in advance, tickets are non-refundable. However, if you can't come, you can sell your ticket to someone else that you find, just let us know and we'll have them fill your space. But we'd be really sad you couldn't come.
DO YOU HAVE GROUP RATES?
Heck yeah! Just email Joe to get a group rate. If you have a group of 4, you can all get 10% off. If you have a group of 8+ you can get 15% off. Also, please send any room requests/assignments to us after you get the welcome email.
WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE A PRIVATE PRACTICE AND I WORK AT A NON-PROFIT OR COLLEGE?
Joe Sanok has applied these methods in work at runaway shelters, foster care agencies, community colleges, and businesses. Although this conference is aimed at people in counseling private practices, it is completely applicable and transferable to a non-profit, college, or business setting that is not a private practice. ut your text in this area
"I wanted to create something for extroverts and introverts alike. For successful therapists to come to a place where they don't feel so alone but instead are encouraged to keep going and growing."
