Leslie Householder’s Book Writing Retreat
Date TBD (join the priority notification list below)
Gold Canyon, AZ
Trying to finish a book? Need to get away? Spend 5 days at a cabin getaway with Leslie and a small group of other aspiring authors with plenty of time to think, write, and strategize one-on-one and in a small, intimate group about your project. Let Leslie personally help you with your mindset throughout the process for optimal results.
It’s not just about getting your book done, it’s about making it amazing!
Imagine 5 days with a best-selling and award-winning author, and just a handful of other participants at a quiet resort to be inspired, to strategize, and to work on YOUR book!
Yes, you read that right. That’s FIVE days learning from, and working with, the author of The Jackrabbit Factor in a private setting, in person… not on a telephone call, not in an office… but just Leslie and a small number of other authors hunkered down for a week, focused on writing — a perfect environment for inspired ideas (and a lot of fun, to boot!).
From Leslie Householder
Dear Aspiring Author,
If you want to write a book that will improve the lives of people all over the world, the right ideas flow more freely in a beautiful and quiet environment. Focus is critical, and best maintained when interruptions are at a minimum.
Believe me, with seven children, I KNOW. 😉
What might otherwise take a year or two (or more!) can often be accomplished in just a short time, if the conditions are right. I’d like to share with you a powerful formula for maximum traction and momentum for writing a book, especially for people who “DON’T HAVE TIME!”
However, an author can go stir crazy and experience burnout if there isn’t just a little bit of variety sprinkled in. So, I’m putting together a small-group workshop to help just a small group of aspiring authors get their own books on their way.
Will it be YOU?
Having the right person to be a sounding board is an indispensable piece of the process. Masterminding, brainstorming, even some silliness now and then can really get the juices flowing! If you join me for this event, you’ll have a valuable sounding board as you create your book, because I want to help you make it amazing!
I look forward to hearing from you!
|Do I have a message that just needs to get out?|
|Has it been difficult to find a quiet place to write?|
|Can I work independently for extended periods of time?|
|Is my message empowering, relevant, and unique?|
|Do I want exposure to Leslie’s subscriber base of 20,000+ readers?|
If you answered, “Yes” to these questions, you are a prime candidate for this one-of-a-kind opportunity.
Imagine getting “into the flow” and participating in the exciting process of creating a book. Imagine, just you, Leslie, and a small group of other authors for five amazing days, overcoming obstacles together at a beautiful resort.

“How Much Will This Cost?”
In order to create the right environment for maximum results, only a small number guests will be permitted. To hire Leslie exclusively as a personal coach/consultant for 5 days around the clock, your investment would be at least $10,000.
(The one-on-one book writing retreats she has hosted in the past cost each participant $12,000)
Add 4 nights lodging and meals, and your total bill would exceed even that. However…
If you are the right match for this opportunity, your investment is only $5950.
Leslie and her husband have personally spent more than $150,000 on personal coaching and business training. She wishes she could have had an opportunity like this to help her in the early days. None of the programs she invested in ever offered this kind of value and personal attention to her book creation and marketing.
You will need your own laptop. Internet service is available via wireless cellular access device, not included. Transportation to Gold Canyon, Arizona and back to your home again is not included.
“Don’t Die with the Music Still In You”
Too many people take their great ideas to their graves… and the world they leave behind never gets to receive the benefit of their unique and much-needed message. You’ve been saying “one day I’ll write that book,” but what if “one day” never comes? What if your grandchildren never get to know the words that were in your heart, because they were buried with you when you died?
It has been said that the graveyard is the most valuable place on earth because it’s filled with people who took their massive potential with them to the grave.
This scenario is not just a motivational story, but a true story about someone remarkable who died just a few years ago. My co-author for Portal to Genius had a close friend, Les McGuire, who left a legacy behind when a small airplane crashed in Utah lake. What many people don’t know, something Garrett Gunderson wanted me to be sure to share with you, is that Les HAD carved out some time to finally get his book written…
…but the plane crashed two weeks before that date, and his book was never written.
The world can never know what you have to say unless you put a priority on making it happen. It won’t happen by accident, to be sure. It’s almost guaranteed it won’t be easy, but it will be worth the effort.
Your only enemy is procrastination. If something inside of you is urging you to take action on this, right now, get registered before we fill up. Mark the dates on the calendar. If money is tight but you still feel compelled to apply, expect the way to appear. Make the sacrifice. Your book is a labor of love, and the people who need it most right now are being prepared, through their life experiences, to receive it. As you take those steps to bring it to them, they’re also finding their way to you.
Let it happen!
How Much is Your Time Worth?
Time spent on a book is not limited to the actual minutes spent hitting the keys on your keyboard. Most of the time is spent closing your mind to distractions and focusing in on the concepts you want to convey. A small interruption pulls you out of “the zone”, and returning to it is not as simple as returning your eyes to the computer screen. A 7-minute interruption can easily cost you 2-hours of productivity. If you value your time and know how important it is to make every minute count, you’ll appreciate the time and money you’ll save GETTING THINGS DONE at the retreat.
I completed the FTMF in 2009 and to say the least – it was life-changing!! I have been on a self improvement journey my whole life… I have read so many self help books and participated in so many programs. However, it was when I read the Jackrabbit Factor and then Hidden Treasures that something clicked inside me. Leslie came out with the FTMF course a while later and was SO happy when I finally got it.
This course also pushed me further than I have ever been pushed… I broke through so many terror barriers – it was awesome! During the fall of 2009, I was finishing the course, and I chose Leslie’s book writing retreat as my final exam. It was an unbelievable experience getting there. There were times I would cry and want to give up… I gave it EVERY ounce of effort I could to get the money and be there.
Every time I was on the brink of giving up… words from the FTMF would bring me comfort and give me strength. I would be at the end of my rope and each time I would be given one last idea that would bring me closer. My faith grew SO much!! I relied heavily on prayer and inspiration… I wrote in my FTMF journal each day. I wrote affirmations… I visioned being at the cabin with Leslie. I pictured taking walks outside, sitting on the sofa, eating in the kitchen (there were pictures online that helped)… At the last minute, people and money aligned so I could contact Leslie and say “I’ll BE THERE!” I know it was where I needed to be. And since that time, it is confirmed to me over and over. I am on my way to greater things and I owe it all to these experiences and people I have met along the way.
I love Leslie and Trevan!! And I am so grateful for their inspiration and hard work that has gone into the books, programs, and website forums. They are truly making the world a better place.
If you do not see this “investment in you” as a magnifier of your precious time and resources, but a drain on them instead, then it is not for you. Don’t even worry about registering. Certainly this opportunity is not for everyone… it’s only for a small handful of qualified participants.
(Leslie has turned applicants away who were not ready for this kind of opportunity.)
On the other hand, if you recognize this opportunity to be the very thing you’ve been looking for – a way to get your book out of your heart and into the hands of others – then….
Submit your registration now. This retreat will be upon us sooner than you think!
Here’s What Leslie is looking for:
Self-confident, easy-going leaders; self-starters with empowering, relevant and unique messages, who have an inspiring personal story, at least a little bit of experience speaking in front of a group, and who are READY and determined to make their book a reality!
