The 4th Annual
Reconnect with your partner
Spark meaningful conversation
Experience the thrill of adventure
When you’re focused on growing your company or career, it’s easy to lose touch with your partner. We coast along with an occasional date night and distracted conversations that might sound something like…
“What a long day. I’m exhausted and still have work to do. Can we postpone our dinner date?”
“Sure, we can go next week. I just don’t want our relationship taking a backseat to the business.”
“Thanks for understanding. I do want to spend time together, but the business needs me right now.”
I feel like we’re in a good place. But imagine if we took a week away – just the two of us – that would be amazing.
“Why do we have the same argument over and over again?”
“I don’t know. I do sometimes feel like you don’t understand what I’m trying to say.
“It’s like we’re speaking two different languages. We’re talking…but not really hearing each other.”
I’d like to learn how to communicate in a better way and break that pattern.
“We’ve been so busy. It’s almost like we’re living two separate lives. Are we okay?”
“We’re okay, but I know we could be better. I miss feeling like we’re a kickass team. Knowing you have my back and taking on the world together.”
“We could have it again. We just need to find the time to spend with each other. Let’s go on adventure together.”
Entrepreneurs, executives, business owners, and community leaders are changing the world for the better every day. But the demands of work can overshadow our personal relationships. Even with a strong bond, you and your partner need to invest time and attention in each other to stay connected.
“The experience my wife and I shared at the Couples Retreat at Red Horse Ranch has been life changing. The week filled with fun, adventure, learning, sharing and socializing has taken our relationship to the next level of appreciation for one another. It was a week which will live within us for our life time together.”
Tim and Jeanne Dever
“We arrived with a really strong relationship. A week later, we left even stronger, more aligned and more connected.”
Chris and Amber Jamieson
2021 and 2022
Red Horse Mountain Ranch is an all-inclusive dude ranch near Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (which has a small airport). Many guests fly into Spokane, Washington, which is a beautiful 2-hour drive away.
Everyone who has been to the Ranch will say there’s something magical about it. The natural beauty, the horses, the ability to disconnect from technology, the time together, and the incredible staff that manage the facility combine to make it a unique experience.
“I was pushed well outside my comfort zone mentally, physically and emotionally…having a blast the entire time. I was able to meet amazing entrepreneurial couples from all over the world…I had a pretty strong relationship with my spouse coming into the retreat, we learned a lot about one another and went home even stronger.”
