If you’ve reached the point where the old business systems and structures are no longer working for you, and you’re ready to move out of the (un)comfortable minimum of enough and into the flow of more than enough, it’s time for you to make the decision to do something different.
I’m ready to lead you forward, out of mediocrity and status quo. Out of not enough (or just enough) to more than enough.
I know that “comfortable minimum” is NOT what you want or you wouldn’t still be searching for someone who can truly guide you, someone who’s built a financially stable and consistently successful business that honors what really matters, without sacrificing what’s most important.
When you are clear and committed, you are filled with a sense of ease and knowing that your wants and needs will be taken care of, because you’re paying attention, making strategic decisions, planning ahead and going beyond your comfortable minimum with the grace you know you’re capable of.
Since the day I started my business, I’ve never wavered from this truth. I’ve watched others soar ahead of me, only to watch them be crushed under the pressure of working too hard and too much, and be absolutely miserable by the monster they created.
Meanwhile, I’ve grown my business, slowly but surely, without one single sacrifice along the way:
~ I enjoy a multiple 6-figure business that funds the life experiences I value
~ I work less than 15 hours a week on average with 1 very part-time virtual assistant so I can keep my family first
~ I take 12 weeks off for the summer and 4 other vacation weeks during the year… I’m the only one I know of who does this. (That’s 16 weeks of dedicated holiday every year.)
~ I’m home for snow days, sick days, and whenever my immediate or extended family needs me to be available. This kind of flexibility and freedom is priceless.
Others promise this kind of lifestyle, but they just don’t walk their talk. I do.
But so what? What does this mean for YOU?
Well, do you want…
~ Enough money so you have peace of mind? Meaning not just your bills are paid, and you have a little left over. I mean that you have more than enough to fund the life you want to experience.
~ Time to be your own. Focused, 100% present, flexible, to spend on what matters most to you? For me, that’s my family. For you, it may be family, kids, aging parents, a creative passion like painting or photography or acting, charities that you’re passionate about, yoga, travel, or something else entirely.
~ Joy – knowing you’re creating something of substance and service in a way that honors your lifestyle choices.
~ Ease – to let go of all the ‘shoulds’ and do it your way, once and for all.
Imagine with me…
~ a business that you run with ease and joy, instead of it running you ragged
~ a business that operates within your chosen time…on your terms…instead of the other way around
~ a business that allows you to focus your time where and when YOU want, instead of squeezing your life into the tiny pockets of time that are left over
~ a business that brings you consistent income, giving you true peace of mind
I’ve been mentoring entrepreneurs just like you for 16 years to create their own profitable business in less than part-time hours, so they can have the time and money freedom they ache for.
I want to do the same with you.
The truth is that you’re probably working too hard for too little return.
Did you just nod? It’s true.
We make it so complicated, we over-think, we get distracted by the next bright and shiny thing. We make a plan but we don’t actually implement the plan.
We have a great vision but we’re stuck making decisions from our current place of lack. We create new stuff instead of squeezing the juice out of what we already have. We spend WAY too much time on social media NOT building our business.
We question every piece of advice we’re given – no matter who the giver – instead of trusting and testing it out for ourselves. And then we wonder why ‘it’s not working!’.
(Ok, I admit it – this is the stuff that makes me nuts.)
If I’ve just described you, and you’re unwilling to do things differently, then this is NOT the event for you.
If, however, you want to simplify your business and marketing, give yourself the gift of time to do with as you please, create reliable and leveraged income streams, and enjoy your business – and your life – a whole lot more – this is IS the event for you – if you’re truly willing to take what I’m offering and run with it.
And if you know it’s possible to have a thriving business, but you don’t want to do “whatever it takes” to make that happen, rest easy because I’m with you. I’m not willing to do “whatever it takes” either – no thanks.
But I am willing to commit to my LIFE first, then my business. I make decisions from that place, which actually makes things SO much easier.
I spend time only on what works and then leverage that to the nth degree.
Aren’t you tired of searching for the magic key that will unlock all the secrets to this business-building thing?
Well, rest assured that there isn’t a magic key. There are no ‘secrets’. It’s actually pretty simple to build a cash-rich business online.
And the best part? It can be a whole lot more fun than it is right now. 🙂
In 2001, I was desperate for a business that I loved that would fund the life I wanted…
But what I didn’t want was this huge company that required me to work more than play. I realized early on that I wasn’t willing to work that hard, do whatever it takes or have a “no excuses” approach…
Where’s the fun in that?
I just wanted more than enough to fund the life I wanted for myself and my family while still spending the majority of my time with my husband and our two kids, or just doing stuff I wanted to do.
And I did that – and then I wanted more.
And since I was determined that I wasn’t going to work more, I had to get really good at being strategic, planning, using leverage, being focused, only investing in just the next thing that I was actually going to use to grow my business (all things I will share with you at Simplify & Amplify).
If you allow yourself to design your business around your life and what’s most important to you instead of feeling pressured into working more for the results you want, you absolutely can make it happen.
Following my own mentors’ advice and listening to my inner guidance has steadily moved me to a place of financial piece of mind.
And just so you know, it took me three years to reach my first $100k. And 8 years to reach $1M in sales.
But I’m ok with that. 😉
Believe me, if *I* can do it, you can too.
The sad thing is that most entrepreneurs struggle for too long
trying to figure everything out on their own.
Here’s what I know…
Every business owner is unique, so every business is unique.
The harder you work, the harder it is to be successful.
Time is an illusion. Let go of this and you’ll reach every goal you set.
Decide to be successful on your terms in your time, not for someone else’s agenda.
YOU are your own best source. Sometimes we just need a little guidance.
Here’s what else I know…
You must have a Big Money Why.
You must know what you really, really, really want.
Your desire has to be bigger than your doubt.
You have to be willing to let go – of everything.
Otherwise, it’s just too damn hard.
And not at all FUN.
The good news is you don’t have to figure it all out on your own…
During our two days together, you’ll gain clarity around exactly where your business is and why, excavate what truly motivates you as well as what brings you joy, release doubts of what the right next move is, and move through any fears you have as I direct you on YOUR right path.
You’ll experience extreme relief as you simplify your entire business along with a profound sense of ease when you leave with your doable action plan.
When you show up willing to see things differently, let go of what’s no longer working for any reason so it no longer drags you down, and ready to put the next steps into action, your business – and your life – will be transformed.
Simplify & Amplify is an intimate retreat enjoyed in a spacious and light-filled setting, where you’ll be DOING what you learn while we’re together.
Simplify & Amplify is NOT long intense days full of theory that intellectually may be stimulating, but doesn’t offer anything tangible for you to implement.
This is where you make the shifts, gain the clarity, receive the direction and make the plan how to apply it all to your business and your life – with me right by your side.
We’ll focus on these 3 key areas to
Re-set, Re-align, Re-evaluate, Re-connect and Re-invent
your business and your life…
SimplifyLet’s take all the puzzle pieces and put them together for you by streamlining and simplifying everything.
Re-Set, Re-Align & Re-evaluate
Do you remember why you started your business in the first place?
But somewhere along the way, things got muddled and you’ve found yourself doubting, confused, off-track and not knowing which way to turn next?
We all start with what we know. But now it’s time to recognize what we don’t. In order to get from here to there, we need to go back to the beginning, re-evaluate our why, re-align with what is true for you today, and re-set so we can finally move into the next level of growth.
It’s time to multiple your audience, amplify your message above the noise, so your just-right people hear it.
Re-Connect with Your Purpose and Excavate Your Stand
When we first start putting our messages out in the world, we tend to say safe, live in the Land of Vanilla, not wanting to draw too much attention to ourselves so we don’t alienate others – or worse, ourselves.
But it’s time to walk through the fear and take a stand. Whether it’s a core belief, a controversial viewpoint, or a deep guiding principle – this is the time to start sharing it… and sharing it big.
Now we can Freedom-fy your business so it fully supports and funds your desired lifestyle.
Re-Invent Your Business Model
Are you tired of following a business model that just isn’t working for you?
It’s not bringing you the right (or enough) clients, members, income, or opportunities anymore?
Then it’s time to shake things up – no more comfortable minimum.
You have choices to change things up. You’ve probably already started this process, perhaps tentatively.
It’s time. Now. Not next month or next year. NOW.

on what you’ll be learning at the retreat…
Before we can build a business we love – for the long haul – we need to get straight on what’s most important to us, both in our business and our life.
We’ll begin Simplify & Amplify with simplifying everything by…
- excavating what’s MOST important to you and why
- figuring out what your Big Money Why (BMW) is and why it’s imperative to define and embrace it
- digging deep into the roots of your success (this one leads to lots of AHA moments)
- giving you the confidence you need to stand strong with your boundaries and protection of what you value most
- deciding what you will and will not do or be anymore
- getting crystal clear on what you will focus on being and doing going forward
- deciphering your deeper more specific Message and your work in the world
- creating your Soapbox Stand in your market
- dismantling what isn’t working in your business (and life) and create an easier more authentic framework
- and more mindset shifting concepts with practical applications
I’ll also share with you my 5 favorite manifesting rituals I routinely do that have made a big impact on not just my bottom line, but my mindset and life as well.
You’ll learn how to optimize and automate your lead generation process and amplify your reach into a much wider audience (think reaching the masses with your message).
You can’t make money with your business online if no one knows it exists. That’s why you need high quality, targeted traffic – your ideal clients and customers – to easily be able to find you online.
More importantly, though, is YOU need to find THEM.
And you need easy and systematic ways to invite them to connect with you further.
During the retreat, you’ll learn at least 8 of my favorite ways to capture and connect with your ideal audience. We’ll go in-depth on each of these, and you’ll receive easy-to-follow Implementation Charts for each one too.
Here are just a few of them:
- Utilizing the power of video to engage with your best audience who become your best clients and customers
- Simple strategies that will help boost your rankings in the search engines that you’re likely not doing
- How to power-up your freebies to bring more consistent subscribers to your list
- How Instagram can be a fun and easy way to connect with more of your people where they are
- An automatic and systematic lead-generating process that consistently brings new people to you
- How to use virtual speaking (webinars, podcasts, teleseminars, Facebook Lives, etc.) to attract a lot more new people into your inner circle quickly and consistently
- How to connect with the right champion mentor to engage with even more of your ideal audience to dramatically increase your list numbers
- How to effectively use your Facebook Page as a leveraging tool and gathering place for your Facebook friends and followers
- How to create and run a successful free Facebook Group that will increase your reach and your revenue
- How to effectively use social media to build your list without wasting your time or energy
- What you can create that has the capacity to go viral and potentially attract thousands of new people to your list
- How to create a follow-up sequence that turns your new followers into clients and customers
- and much more…
Business Ascension Model™
The Business Ascension Model™ is the evolution of your business from that first day you took the leap of faith with your business idea to the next level to the next level to the next level…
This model offers a whole new sense of direction and purpose – because it’s NOT just about the money. It’s about what matters.
And when you focus on what matters, to you and to your audience, that’s when the money comes.
I’m blessed to be connected with over 40,000 people in my community and on my email lists whom I can inspire and empower, to be able to choose to work with just a handful of fabulous clients where we can go much deeper, and because of the Business Ascension Model™, my business is lucrative enough to fund the lifestyle I want while only being at my desk an average of 15 hours a week.
So, let me ask you this: How much money do you REALLY need to support the life you want to experience WITHOUT sacrificing what matters most to you?
I’m going to help you figure that out at Simplify & Amplify so you have a realistic and absolutely attainable goal to reach. And whatever your answer is, we can make it happen for you.
When you are clear and committed to your cash flow, you can plan for the future with a sense of ease and knowing that your wants and needs will be taken care of, because you’re paying attention, making strategic decisions, and going beyond your comfortable minimum with the grace you know you’re capable of.
We’ll look at key questions around cash flow, like:
– where should you, as the CEO of your business, be putting your attention?
– are your maximizing cash flow in each and every one of your income streams?
– where is your cash flow stagnant or stuck and how can you move them into flowing more easily and abundantly?
– what investments would increase your cash flow even when it ‘feels’ like an expense?
Part of creating your own Business Ascension Model™ is making decisions on exactly how you want your business be.
> Do you want to offer a group experience to a large audience? Then you’ll want to follow the Memberships/Associations/Organizations BAM.
> Do you want to coach one-on-one or to smaller groups, or both? Then you’ll want to follow the Coaching/Consulting BAM.
> Do you want to lead in-person workshops or retreats? Then you’ll want to follow the Retreat/Workshop BAM.
> Do you want to focus on offering online courses, digital products and/or physical products? Then you’ll want to follow the Program/Product BAM.
At Simplify & Amplify, you’ll receive all 4 of these BAMs to choose from – and yes, you can combine any part of these to customize your own BAM, which I will personally help you do during our time together.
We’ll literally walk through each of these Business Ascension Models™ during our two days together, so you’ll be sure to leave with your plan for a more peaceful and profitable business in place.

Praise from Past Attendees of Alicia’s 7 Previous Sold-Out Workshops
“Alicia Forest, more than my coach; my guide, my teacher and my inspiration. Thank you for your continued support, the endless resources and your authentic intuition.
Through our work together, I have become unstuck, finally moving myself forward out of the limiting patterns that held me back. Your caring, yet forward nudge to either go for it or throw it all in, moved me out of fear into confidence. Your belief in me has gifted me with the most important lesson of all: I now believe and value myself.
I am grateful you choose to show up as your true self each day, as you instill that same courage in all of us that you coach to do the same.”Elizabeth Scala, RN, MBA
“I can’t say enough about getting the chance to work with Alicia. After attending her workshop I signed up on the spot to work with her privately. To kick off our work together I attended a full day private retreat where together we mapped out a plan for my business, my launches, my marketing and how to generate the income I was looking to achieve. Not only did I leave the retreat with exactly what I was looking for but much more.
Alicia gives you everything and doesn’t hold back. I’m so fortunate to have her as both a mentor and friend and I can’t recommend her highly enough. It will be one of the best business decisions you will ever make.”Jeannie Spiro
“I’ve worked for years 1-on-1 with Alicia as a private client, so why in the world would I pay travel expenses to attend a workshop focused on topics I’ve covered with her already? Well, for two reasons.
1. I’ve started a second business and needed to outline my signature system. Yes, I could have done this one my own, but it’s difficult to set aside the time in my normal surroundings. PLUS, I had a ton of ideas running through my mind and it was INVALUABLE to have someone to bounce my thoughts off of and receive direct feedback.
2. Attending a live workshop is a fantastic opportunity for me to meet individuals I see online face-to-face and better determine the potential for future collaborations.
So many attendees were raving about how much information they received and how open Alicia is about sharing her business, what she’s done, what’s worked for her, and her recommendations for taking your own business forward. I can’t recommend attending Alicia’s event highly enough!”Lisa Nelson, RD
“I’ve been to all 7 of Alicia’s past workshops because I get so much out of them. I come home every year with a grand list of “to do’s” that I know will maximize my time, increase profits (yes, I was leaving money on the table) all while increasing my return on effort.
Alicia’s authentic, genuine and open book way of teaching makes her workshops fun, informative and worth the investment. Best of all she gives you time to actually work on your business while at the workshop and the content isn’t the big “fluff” that you get at most workshops.
Will I be at Alicia’s event again? Definitely!”Sandra De Freitas
“What an amazing few days. This is the most incredible group of people. As I was driving home I finally allowed myself to feel all the amazing things I was feeling – and I realized that feeling was FREEDOM! I am free of financial worries, free of illness worries, free of having to rely on my incredible husband, free to do whatever I dream of AND free to encourage by husband to do whatever he wishes to. I was flying high and soaking this all in.
At the same exact moment a picture popped up on my phone from an old friend. It was a picture from one year ago on my son’s very last day of chemo. We came home and a parade (yes literally a parade of community members, family, and friends) came down the street with our high school marching band in celebration of our baby kicking cancer’s a**. I completely lost it! So many amazing milestones happening to our family in the last year. I had to pull over and cry my tears of joy and gratitude. Life truly is good and I am so happy to share my journey with you. I hope it inspires each of you to pursue your dreams in confidence with the utmost gratitude for each life lesson!”Claire Pahucki
“Alicia’s events are my go-to business training resource. I’ll be going back for my 6th time this year. Why? Because Alicia‘s content continues to evolve as my business evolves. Every year my business is in a new place and I need new tools and different kinds of guidance. Alicia offers exactly what I need, at whatever level I’m at. I
n addition, the friendships and business connections I’ve developed with the other attendees over the years have become priceless to me.”Lisa Braithwaite
“OBBW gave me the business support and structure that I desperately needed as a new entrepreneur.
Alicia is masterful in teaching what we need to know in order to create a successful business. I’ve learned so much from her and I can’t wait to learn more as my company Ultimate Healing Journey LLC continues grow!”Debbie Lyn Toomey, RN
“Having an online business for years, I researched very thoroughly who I wanted to learn from and Alicia did not disappoint! I made a commitment that I would go to ONE workshop during ‘event season’ and wow, am I ever glad that I chose Alicia’s event.
Alicia is so refreshing, honest, and open about what has worked for her and what hasn’t and generously shares all of her knowledge with you! I know a lot about the mechanics of building an online business, but I was really amazed at how much I learned at her event. I’m already implementing some of the terrific strategies on a brand new program which I know will ensure that it is a smashing success!
As a former teacher, I know a good teacher when I see one and Alicia sets the bar high. She ensured that everyone was learning at a pace that was good for them and prevented overwhelmed by clarifying and patiently answering questions. Her calm presence truly made the event flow in a warm and comfortable way (which definitely resonated with me!).
The Money Mastery portion of the workshop was my favorite, it was enlightening and thought-provoking and I learned a lot about how of been treating money in my business. I can’t wait to see how these shifts show up professionally!
And the icing on the cake was staying in Portsmouth, a cozy, cool, hip town with a bit of funky thrown in. It was a wonderful place to get to know other attendees and create that great cohesiveness that a good conference facilitates. Hopefully I’ll get to meet YOU at one of her future events!“Danielle Miller
“I loved, loved, loved Alicia Forest’s event! This is the only event of it’s type that I’ve attended where it was 100% content. Alicia gave us so much marketing information that I could easily implement and make more money (which I already have!!!).
She’s also very generous of spirit – answering all of my questions – which is priceless. Looking forward to learning more from her. Thank you, Alicia.”Kate Beeders
Join us for this limited seating event
Because of the intimate nature of this retreat, seating is very limited.
This retreat is not like my past workshops. We’ll be digging deep into your business at a very specific level to move you to the next. This retreat is best for you if you have the foundational pieces in place already.
Why Simplify & Amplify?
I know you have many choices for live events, and that for most folks it’s a big decision to clear the calendar, make travel arrangements, take time away, invest the money, etc.
Having been to many live events over the last 15+ years, I can share from experience what sets S&A apart:
- intimacy – just you, me and 29 other lovely, supportive, positive, like-minded creative spirits in the room
- 100% content – because I’m still the how-to gal 😉
- all-Alicia – I promise you won’t get sick of me though
- tailored to the attendees – I ask you specifically what you most need from me during the retreat well before you even arrive
- deep-level connections with me and your fellow attendees – attendees become fast friends and they are like family to me
- actual work done while you’re at the event – that’s why you’re there
- actual coaching given at the event – that’s why I’m there
A few other fun things that make S&A unique:
- A plethora of food choices and time to enjoy them – no matter what your desired diet is!
- Portsmouth – a walking city of shops, restaurants, on the ocean – attendees even walk to Maine to get a lobster roll at Warrens!
And yes, I will be inviting you to work with me further after the event, but you will get what you need while you’re there… and I think you’ll find my light-touch invitation to be refreshing. In fact, many clients ultimately sign up for coaching because they felt they were able to make a decision from a place of peace and calm ~ no high-pressure hyped-up sales pitch here (ask around ;-)).
So what do you think? Is S&A the live retreat you’ve been searching for but have yet to experience?
I’d really love to have you join us…

If you’re one of the first 10 people to register, you’ll be invited to join me for an ‘Inspired’ call soon after the retreat. During this relaxed time together, I’ll share with you some of the ways I stay inspired so I can continue to expand. The chat will be open for you to ask me anything you’d like – whether it’s about your business or mine – or anything that came up during the retreat that you have questions about. I’m happy to follow-up, and I love to share ‘behind the screen’ to inspire you as you move forward in growing your business and expanding your life.
BONUS: Private Facebook Group
As soon as you register your seat, you’ll be invited to join our private Facebook group so you can begin to connect with other attendees. This is a fun and safe gathering space to receive guidance and support as you prepare to get the most out of the event. Plus I’ll be adding some special surprises to the group too!
BONUS: Access to Online Business Breakthrough LIVE™
I’m also giving you access to my Online Business Breakthrough Live! program. This online coaching program will give you a refresher on the foundational pieces you need to have in place before being able to fully move to the next level with the online component of your business. We’ll send you all the details once you reserve your spot so you can access the program materials whenever you’d like.
BONUS: LIVE Spotlight Coaching with me
One of the best parts about keeping my events small is that I’m able to give you LOADS of individualized attention during our 2 days together. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to receive “spotlight” coaching with me throughout the event so we can personalized the content even more for you. This is one of the reasons why we have so many returning attendees!
BONUS: Successful Sales Pages Made Simple
Many of my clients struggle with writing a sales page, so you’re not alone if this is a sticking point for you too.
Writing a sales page is an art and a science. I’m giving you my sales page formula plus at least three different templates that you can use to help you get 80% of your sales page complete. That’s the science piece. The art piece is adding YOU to your sales page so it authentically sells for you.
“Before working with Alicia, if you had told me it was possible to write authentic sales copy, I would have scoffed. But I will never forget an exercise we worked through at Alicia’s event that led to me spending an afternoon with tears streaming down my face, pouring my heart onto a page to my clients about what I had created for them and why. I didn’t know entrepreneurship could be like this but Alicia showed me it can.”
Jamie Ridler MA CPCC
BONUS: How to Take the Summer Off
One of the questions I get asked the most is this: “Alicia, how do you manage to take the summers off?”
Well, as part of your event materials, I’m going to share exactly how I do it – tips, tricks, techniques and all.
Spending the summer at the lake with my husband and kids was one of my biggest motivators in making my business a success, and I’m happy to share with you how I’ve made that happen every year for 12 years.
It’s a practical step-by-step guide to putting the right systems into place so when you take time off (whether it’s the summer, the holidays or a week’s vacation), you truly take time OFF – and your business still runs.
BONUS: Priority Registration & Special Savings to Alicia’s 2018 Live Event
If you register for the event AND attend, you’ll receive Priority Registration and Special Savings to Alicia’s 2018 live event.

If you’re a new business owner but have the foundational pieces in place (you know your market and your message, you have a website and a freebie with an opt-in feature), then you’ll find what you’ll learn at S&A to get you to that next level more quickly than you could alone.
If you have several years under your belt, what I’ll be sharing with you during our two days together is applicable and immediately implementable to your level of business growth.
One of the unique ways I teach is in ‘layers’ – you’ll fully appreciate this at the event, so that no matter where you are on your business-building path, you’ll learn just what you need to know and do next to move up to your next level.
And it’s one of the beauties of hosting a boutique event like this – we’ll be tailoring all of the content together for wherever you are on your business-building path (starting with a Discovery Questionnaire you receive via email before the workshop where I ask all about you and your business, your goals and desires, and what you want and need most from me at S&A).
I’d like to come, Alicia, and I'm wondering if I can bring someone with me?
While you are welcome to refer someone to the event, due to the limited seating, there are no bring-a-friend or guest tickets available.
If you’d like to refer to someone to S&A, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know, so we can thank you for yoru trust and support with a gift upon their registration.
Why would I want to take time away from my business and life to come to an event like this?
I understand that sometimes it’s like moving mountains to attend an event like this, believe me!
I also know that when it’s the right event at the right time, it will make a dramatic difference in the quality of both your business and your life – and that is absolutely worth the intensive time spent at S&A. I want to teach you exactly how to create income that doesn’t require you to be at your desk ever, if that’s how you want to design it. My goal is to show you what’s completely possible with new thinking, a shift in perspective, proven business models, and the exact strategies to get you to where you want to be a whole lot sooner.
I've been to so many events and have been disappointed that I didn't get what was promised. How do I know that your event will really help me?
My experience from coaching and mentoring for over 16 years is that no one else can do the work for you. If you’re ready to look at things differently, dismantle and let go of what’s no longer working, and re-create from that space, with a willingness and excitement to do the work, then I’d love to have you join us!
This retreat is designed to show you the path I’ve walked – the successes and the failures – and I know how to create a financially successful business while honoring the life experiences that are most important to me. That’s what I’ll be sharing and showing you at S&A.
I've been to your live event before and loved it - and I'm curious. Is this the same content?
While there will be some content we’ve covered before, we’ll be going deeper and looking at it from the standpoint of removing the layers so that we can be simplifying everything. And there will be fresh content that will be looking at what’s new and working today to add to the possibilities for new income streams for you, and of course my focus is on how the LEVERAGE everything in your business so you get a much bigger result for far less effort. This year we have new and revised sessions that will increase your reach and grow your audience. You will also hear from past attendees as to what worked for them since learning at previous events to inspire you.
I’d like to come, Alicia, but I don’t like big rah-rah events, as I'm more introverted and like a quieter energy. Will I be energetically over-stimulated at your workshop?
I’m an extrovert (and ENFP to be exact 😉 ) but until I learned some techniques to protect my energy (I call it my ‘magic bubble’), I would be completely overwhelmed by big rah-rah, lots of dancing and loud music, squished into rows of seats, long days (and not long enough breaks) type of events.
S&A is nothing like that. Our event is held in a large space with lots of natural light and space so that we have plenty of room to breathe and spread out. And we have breaks that are long enough to take a walk and get some fresh air and sunshine as well as enough time for a relaxed lunch so you can rest and recharge alone or with your new-found friends, who will become long-term friends (it’s a close-knit group who continue to connect and collaborate together well after the event ends). Plus you’ll be invited to join the private Facebook group where you can start connecting with the other S&A attendees right away. You can find a roommate or share a ride within the group as well.
What is your cancellation and refund policy?
- If you decide not to attend Simplify & Amplify, you have up until 60 days before the event begins to ask for a refund. We’ll refund your ticket purchase, less a $100 bookkeeping fee. After the 60-day cutoff, cancellations are non-refundable. However, you may apply the funds to Alicia’s future events or any other products within one year.
- Tickets may be transferred to a friend, colleague, spouse, client or the like, by written request to our office, and only for the specific Simplify & Amplify dates/year for which they were purchased.
- Tickets are not transferable from one Simplify & Amplify dates/year to another Simplify & Amplify or any other events dates/year. If you do not attend the event you have purchased a ticket for, that ticket is forfeit and nonrefundable.
- Due to limited seating and Alicia’s desire that this event be the right decision for all, all ticket purchases must be approved and are at the sole discretion of Alicia Forest International. Any ticket purchases not approved will be refunded in full.
- Due to the very limited number of tickets for the event, no refund requests will be accepted after October 15, 2017. The reason for this is so all who attend honor their commitment to their decision and give themselves the gift of being fully present and open to learning, connecting and shifting over the course of the two days with Alicia and the other S&A attendees.

What if I need a roommate?
Once you register, you’ll be given access to our private S&A Facebook group where you can post your request for a roommate. We purposefully reserve rooms with 2 queen beds as many of our attendees prefer to share, to split costs as well as for the camaraderie, and some really wonderful friendships have developed from that shared experience!
There is a very limited number of discounted guest rooms for the event, and fall is a VERY popular time on the eastern seaboard, so please reserve your ticket early and book your room as soon as you receive the link to the hotel’s booking site.
Can I come for only one day?
No. With the seats limited to just 30 (and I don’t over-register my event), it wouldn’t be fair to reserve one for just one day. Plus I wouldn’t recommend it.
Making the choice and commitment to attend this event is really a gift to your business growth and ultimately to yourself. It’s about honoring your desire for your next level of growth, and joining others who are on the same journey and who want to be connected and supportive of each other as they continue on this entrepreneurial path. The content is specifically designed each day to help move you from Foundation, to Flow, to Freedom… so jumping in for just a part of that process would not serve you.
I believe you deserve this immersive time dedicated to you and your business!

More praise from past attendees of Alicia’s events…
“Before Alicia’s event, I wasn’t clear about the next steps I wanted to take in my business. I was open to listening for cues as to where to put my attention. After taking my business offline over the past year, I wasn’t sure how to dip my toe back into the online sphere. My biggest shift at Alicia’s event was that I decided it was time to invest in high-level support. I’m also feeling really ready to start at the beginning with my free taste and let the process unfold (instead of needing to know all the steps). I can’t wait to write my manifesto and to plan my next workshop – and I also can’t wait to work with Alicia.”
“Before I came to Alicia’s event, I had put my business in a very low place on the priority list. I knew I needed to connect with like-minded people and recommit and get re-inspired. I feel so much more grounded in my commitment to actually have a successful business again. I see how important planning is and how neglecting it has impacted my (lack of) business. I realized that I’ve been holding back from declaring and marketing myself as a Recovery Coach, which is a passion I’ve had and been afraid I couldn’t make money doing. I can’t wait to make a specific time commitment and set goals (both professional and money) for my business, and to dive into Alicia’s online coaching program.”
“When I arrived at Alicia’s event, my head was full of noise and I was struggling for clarity. I realized that I needed to extract myself from my business. The retreat was great for me to change my perspective and see my business from the outside looking in and to realize that I know a lot more than I give myself credit for. It’s time for me to play a bigger role. It helped me to decide on the direction I need to take. I now have a plan. I also feel more confident! I’m excited to reconnect with past clients and offer them my new programs and offers on my site. Now i know what needs to be done to move forward in my business.”
