“The longer I am in business, the more I realize I need a specific, strategic, and tailored approach to successfully set and achieve my goals. The Alignment Retreat provided exactly that!
Megan continually encouraged me to focus on my strengths, acknowledge my vulnerabilities, and create structures that support my business with those things in mind. This included amazing spreadsheets with real numbers that make assessing different stages of growth easy and tangible!
If you are longing for a way to build and grow a profitable creative business in sustainable ways, the Alignment Retreat will change the way you approach your business.
Megan offers a solid framework to develop a clear path forward. It’s what every small creative business needs to thrive.“

“The first time I did one of Megan’s Alignment Retreats, just the one opening exercise blew open how I saw my art business. I could see how the particular, unique way I am comfortable operating in the world turned up in my art practice and made that art very unique, very particular.
And from there, it was – OK, now how can we make your business operate in this same way. The way that I personally find easy, natural, and very doable.
I think Megan Auman is a bit of a business genius and I can’t believe how lucky I am to be able to access her skills on this personal level for the Alignment Retreat.“

“I jumped into The Alignment Retreat at the last minute, when the sudden changes in the world in spring 2020 left my original plans for my business completely derailed, and me feeling anxious and very unsure of how to proceed. I’ve worked with Megan many times before so I knew that the investment would be worth it, even if I didn’t know the outcome.
The two days of the business retreat were intense in the best way and incredibly helpful; it actually changed the trajectory of my business. Megan had prepared a series of in-depth, progressive two-hour workshops that built on each other. I had several significant breakthroughs; I’ve never before had such clarity about how my business can work with who I am in a sustainable way.
If you’re in any way stuck or confused about how to uplevel or move your business forward, I couldn’t recommend The Alignment Retreat more highly.“
