What you can expect at Branch Out Austin

In our speaker sessions, you’ll get advanced leadership training with actionable strategies to scale your business, step more fully into your role as CEO, and strengthen important relationships (with your team, community, clients, and romantic partners).

Our mastermind groups are carefully curated so that you will be masterminding and visioning with other women leaders with diverse backgrounds and businesses who will be able to support you based on your challenges and goals. You will be brainstorming and sharing ideas, resources, and wisdom with women who have built their own multi-6, 7 and 8-figure businesses and who have skills and areas of expertise that are different from your own.

Your business can’t reach its full potential if you aren’t taking care of yourself, which is why self-care is incorporated throughout the event. You can choose from several (optional) morning wellness activities, relax in the sauna or hot tub, or take a meditative walk around the labyrinth.

There will also be time for you to have fun and choose your own adventure. Whether your idea of adventure is horseback riding, archery, hiking, painting, wine tasting, or relaxing in the hot tub, we’ve got you covered.

You will meet and build lifelong friendships with founders who will support and inspire you, and who have struggled with the same challenges you’re facing right now. You will be surrounded by vibrant, brilliant, fun, successful women who will help you reach the next level of greatness in your life and business.
