Introducing The Amber Life Business Retreat

Are you looking for clarity and time to transform your business?
Do you want to feel more confident and align your business and personal goals?
Would you like to optimise opportunities for your health, wealth and wellness?

You’re in the right place!

The life of an entrepreneur is a rollercoaster of emotions and we can feel stressed and overwhelmed trying to work it all out by ourselves.

From my own 25 years of entrepreneurial experience and working with hundreds of women to propel their businesses to the next level, I understand what it takes to build a business you’re proud of, and importantly feel good along the way.

I have created a beautiful holistic business retreat for you in the Algarve’s peaceful and inspiring surroundings, giving you the space to work on your business with a powerful mix of proven practical methods and mindset strategies for success.

Coupled with cultivating a foundation for sustained success by enhancing your health and wellness on your entrepreneurial journey.

This year we will be joined by Katerina Pirelli-Zucchetta, a Qualified Plant Based Food Coach at Aqua Sante Wellness and CEO of the Borneo Wildlife Preservation, and Elena Menci, our wonderful yogi and owner of the Haven, a community wellness centre in the Algarve.

I want you to succeed in your business, be financially independent, and create a happy and healthy life.

If this resonates with you, join us at the next Amber Life Business Retreat in November to end the year well and kick-start 2025.

After working together you will have clarity, focus, and direction for your business, and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and ready to bring your dreams and goals to life.

Contact me here today to register your interest and ask any questions.

Hi, I’m Jo James!

The Amber Life Business Retreats are designed for Solopreneurs, small business owners, coaches, and consultants wanting to make changes in their business and to relax, learn, and laugh together.

My clients usually DOUBLE (or treble) their revenue, and always talk of having renewed CONFIDENCE and CLARITY in HOW to build their business and achieve their personal goals.

During the retreat, I will focus on helping you create your mindset for success and identify your next steps for business growth. Or a total restructure to transform your business and lifestyle, if you so desire!  I’d love to help you realise your dreams and goals, with more ease and enjoyment.

What do you want to achieve next?

“I really loved the pace of the retreat, the leisurely mealtimes to the very focused sessions, all set in a stunning location. I now have a much clearer picture of how I’m going to take MicroBarBox to the next level and have a very detailed set of steps to get there.

I love your seemingly endless supply of energy Jo, and the way everything was organised and in place before we arrived.

An absolute joy to work with, a heady mix of business strategies and fun.”

Annie Armitage, Testimonial for Jo James AmberLife

Annie Armitage, Professional Photographer

“Jo has helped me achieve new heights in my business. Before I met Jo I was a wandering creative who was finding it incredibly hard to be motivated and inspired by the art of business. The business coaching I have had with her over the years has enabled me to be focused, organised and goal orientated and be open to opportunities that before I might have missed.

I have certainly increased my sales on three consecutive years now and attribute that success to Jo helping me to plan and see what needed to be achieved instead of aimlessly going from month to month hoping for the best.

Jo is great to work with and she lights up a room with her charismatic bubbly personality and is always upbeat and positive.”

Your Business Success Stories Blog by Jo James AmberLife

Our yogi, Elena Menci from The Haven

To enhance your relaxation and wellness there will be yoga sessions by our beautiful yogi, Elena Menci.

Elena is an International Yogi who has gained her experience in Bali, India, Dubai & Mallorca and is the owner of The Haven in Vilamoura.

The yoga sessions will be tailored to your abilities, giving you time and space to move your body slowly and deliberately into different poses for strength and flexibility, while at the same time focusing on mindfulness.

Practising yoga will give you more confidence and treats your mind and body to moments of calm. Our retreat is a great time to try it if you haven’t yet!

“Elena’s energy is both uplifting and at the same time calming. Her positive energy is infectious. I always leave feeling so much better than before her class. Great class, great knowledge, amazing teacher, lovely person.” 5 Star Google Review by Becky. 

Extra sessions with Elena are available to book if you’d like to add more yoga time to your Retreat.

Kay Daniels, Financial Troubleshooter.

“I was going through a major business overhaul and wanted time to get away, focus on my business, talk through some ideas and get clarity on my goals, which is why I booked the retreat.

It was a safe environment in which we could discuss everything, and I loved the ideas, help and support, the breakthrough moments and the laughter.

I’ve certainly got clarity and a plan to put everything into action now.

The food was absolutely fabulous.
Yoga sessions and walks on the beach were relaxing and were a real energy boost.

Working with Jo James was an uplifting, positive and fun experience.
Facilitated brilliantly, helping us stay on track when we drifted off our path!”
