Welcome to Your Big Weekend!
Soon we’ll be building your brand… on this page you can schedule your strategy call, fill in some info we need from you, and learn about logistics for the weekend.
Before the weekend:
The first step is to schedule your strategy call. This will help us start brewing on your strategy in advance of the weekend and talk through any questions you have. Choose a slot below or enter some times that work to schedule your call.
Tech + Social Media Accounts
To maximize our time together please fill in the below as best you can. All question marks are welcome, such as “should I use Twitter?” and “do I need a separate email address?” … these are all strategic decisions that are different for everyone and we will touch on these questions during your day.
We won’t go deep into social media during our time together, but we’re setting up your brand so you can market effectively and we are obsessed with removing any obstacles, like technology, as best we can. This info will help us prepare and know what to expect in terms of getting your tech set up.
After you fill in this form, please use the service 1ty.me to send your login info for all of the below to firstname.lastname@example.org. This service is secure and deletes the sensitive info after we have read it once (we will hold your info securely and delete after our work together.)

What to Bring
Layers! The spaces can get cold. Warm clothes- socks, scarf, etc
Objects (if relevant) for your photo shoot
Outfit for photos
What to Wear
Most of the time- just comfortable clothes! See info for photo shoot below.
We will be taking your headshot and also taking some photos to use throughout your website and in social media. Remember, you are your brand! So dress in a way that represents your brand and speaks to your audience. We will do the shoots on Saturday afternoon so please plan accordingly. There are bathrooms with mirrors at Abhaya but no showers. Some of you may want to bring objects that represent your brand to be photographed. For example, if you are a meditation teacher, this could be a meditation bowl.
Lunch, Downtime, Yoga etc.
Your Big Weekend is about executing your brands together in person. We’ll be busy working together in small workshop settings and one-on-one sessions throughout the weekend. You are also welcome to take breaks, take lunch, take a yoga class. You may have some down time, especially on Sunday afternoon while the Commit team is working away on your site. We’ll have assignments for you like working on your bio and offerings copy, and we also welcome you to relax and take advantage of any down time.
