For the Wine Country Online Presence Weekend, attendees will need to bring a wi-fi capable laptop or netbook (or rent/borrow one) so that they can fully experience and implement the skills that they will be learning. Once registered, we will be sending you a series of tasks you will need to complete and items to gather before the weekend (graphics, bio etc.) This will make our time together most productive and ensure that everyone leaves with complete and effective results.

Each day will run from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm with a 1 hour break for lunch at the hotel. This leaves you lots of time to enjoy your Wine Country weekend! We invite you to an optional Meet and Greet Friday night which includes a complimentary wine tasting at the hotel followed by a no-host dinner on site.

Cost for the weekend experience and workshops is  $299 per person, with a $50 discount if you register 2 people at once. This fee includes take-home workbooks and action plans for each day of study so that you can continue your efforts when you return to your home or office. The same experience can cost 5 times or more elsewhere! We are all about helping you succeed and that includes becoming more profitable! Keeping our prices lower makes this workshop attainable to business owners at all levels.

The location is at the Doubletree Hotel Sonoma Wine Country, located in Rohnert Park, CA. If you are traveling from out of town, please call  1-707-584-5466 to reserve a room at the Doubletree.

    Hi Ruth – It is for anyone in business. I’ll be able to adjust for those in direct sales as needed and vice versa. So far 3 who have registered are in direct sales, and 3 are not so it’s split! 🙂
