Back Into Balance —

an intimate business retreat where soul meets strategy.

February 28 - March 3, 2019 | Charleston, SC


Get ready for four magical days of intimate connection, mind shifting workshops, powerful meditation, soothing yoga, and gathering around the table with ten inspiring female business owners in cozy, quaint Charleston, SC.


As an online business owner, it’s easy to get caught up in the everyday hustle: checking items off your to do list, mindlessly scrolling on Instagram, and feeling disconnected from the outside world.

That’s why we created the Back Into Balance business retreat. This retreat is designed to help you take a step (or three) away from noisey online world in order to tune back into yourself. It’s time to center back into what you really want and reignite the passion you had when you first started your business.

This is a business retreat like we’ve never seen before. Our focus is on creating a space of renewal. You will walk away from this four day event feeling rejuvenated, changed, connected, and confident living out *your* unique version of balance.

This is a vacation that you won’t need a vacation from as soon as you get home.


What you can expect —

We will be exploring ways to connect more deeply to ourselves and each other.

There will be a mix of life and business focused workshops and activities offered… Think business planning, meditation, intention setting, money chats, yoga, boundary setting, exploring in the city, journaling, and painting.


Who we Are — 

Danielle is the more introverted energy of this duo, while Devan is the extroverted party.

Meaning, there will be perfect balance of exploring, soul chats, and together time as well as alone time to process, get introspective, or take a nap!


About Danielle:


Danielle is an artist, maker, designer, yogi + the business owner over at Function Creative Co. She’s keen on finding the balance between beautiful and functional in all aspects of life and business.

Over the past 5 years as an entrepreneur, Danielle has helped over 240 business owners put their best foot forward when it comes to their business strategy, brand design and website. You can count on her for all things planning, organizing and connecting to your core creative self.

Danielle’s version of a perfect day is waking up to a slow morning routine, where she can make some coffee with her very own pottery-made pour-overs, paint with no expectation of a masterpiece, check-in with her to-dos and flow through the work day with ease and flexibility. It also includes lots of snuggles with her fur-baby Bruce (her chihuahua), and spending time with her husband and their families.


About Devan:


Devan is a business mindset coach on a mission to help female business owners see their inherent power and scale their business to the next level of impact and income.

You can expect her to lovingly call you out on limiting beliefs and old stories that aren’t serving your highest truth. Since starting her business in 2014, Devan has successfully pivoted her business niche, grown a community of loyal newsletter followers, launched countless passive income projects, and empowered her clients to step into their highest self and run their business with more flow and ease.

Devan’s version of a perfect day is sipping a chai latte and journaling her heart out, exploring a new city with her husband (Taylor), walking along the water with her golden pup (Dave), dancing with the girls (mojito in hand), and trying to convince anyone who will listen to follow their passion!


Our Biz Bestie Story — 

Devan and Danielle met where all business bestie relationships start… double tapping eachother's photos on Instagram.

They knew they were meant to be BBFs (business besties forever) after their first face-to-face meeting over Skype went well over the hour they planned. That initial meeting quickly turned into weekly accountability chats where they would talk all things from planning to design to money to cycle syncing.


After more than a year of weekly chats, the idea for the Back Into Balance business retreat was born.

We know how it feels to be burnt out from client work, desiring connection, and just overall wanting to shut out the noise and gather with a few people who get it.

After attending several in-person conferences, workshops, and retreats, Danielle and Devan knew it was time to create their own event experience… one that combined their passion for business and creativity.
