Our Passion Project is Alive!!!!


It has been a long time in the making and we are so thrilled to finally reveal what we have been laboring away on for so long. Brad and I have been approached about workshops and the like for some time now and have always shied away from the typical “this is what I do now you should do it too” format that is so prevalent. We have hosted one-on-one mentoring sessions for a couple of years now and really have enjoyed being able to work with people to help them focus on their specific dreams and goals for their business. We hemmed and hawed over the idea of hosting something larger and one day after brainstorming with our friends Becka & Nate of Studio222Photography we all had this idea that just clicked. What about a retreat based event. We should take people somewhere that would inspire their creative energies, shut out the noise from the social media storm, and enable them to really focus on what their specific artistic vision is. What a wild adventure it would be sharing with people how to create a thriving, successful business creating art that they truly love. And so… The Wild Rest came to be.

We are inundated everyday with noise from our industry on who is doing what and how they are doing it and it can be so overwhelming that our own artistic voice gets lost in the vibrations. So why not take people away from all of that. Shut off email, Twitter, Facebook and just be… for three whole days. Just BE! Brad and I find so much peace in the mountains and always return from our adventures feeling fueled and brimming with creativity. It was unanimous that the Smoky Mountains would be the perfect location for our very first artist retreat. A beautiful cabin in Blue Ridge, GA tucked away in the woods to hush the storm of the everyday and provide the perfect peaceful spot for people get back to their creative center. This retreat will be challenging, invigorating, inspiring and relaxing all at the same time. There is no such thing as one way to find success. The reality is, success is whatever makes you happy. We aim to help you discover what that is for you, find your creative voice and harness the tools to make a successful business as an artist a reality all while enjoying beautiful scenery, having an incredible time with like minded people, and experiencing something brand new. We are so excited about all that we have in store and absolutely cannot wait to share it all with you.

So if you love the mountains, roasting s’mores, meeting new people and taking on personal challenges, then we encourage you to join us for an event that will surely change your life.

We can’t wait to meet you!

Mel & Brad
