2 day in-person retreat making your craft FUN and PROFITABLE AF for the best creative minds

Hosted by Ren Lenhof & Melanie St. Clair

September 10 - 12 | Milwaukee, Wisconsin

It’s 10:49 pm and you’re STILL at the computer.

Even with blue blockers, your eyes hurt like hell.  You set down another empty glass of wine and finally close everything down.

Start a creative business, you said.  Make money doing what you love, you said.  With a forehead wrinkle and frustrated sigh, you’re wondering, “wtf you were thinking?” 

Starting a creative business seemed like a good idea, you swear.  You’ve got the creative chops, passion for service, and drive to succeed.

Yet, the reality is far from the dream.  Even though you’re booking clients and things look kinda okay from the outisde, it feels like this business is sucking the life out of you.

Oh, and don’t even mention how much of a hot mess you feel like as a BUSINESS OWNER.  Sales, money, pricing, marketing, and all the other hardcore business stuff is the last thing you want to touch on your to-do list

If we’re being REALLY honest, you’re starting to resent your business.  
But you also DON’T want to feel that way.

Something has to change.

Where’s the FUN and FREEDOM in being a creative making money?​

You know that there’s more to running this business than chasing the money, booking client to client, and feeling you’re at the beck and call of your business.

You started this business with nothing but a dream – a craving for freedom, fun, passion, and artistic expression.  

You’re ready to

  • make a name for yourself as a creative
  • uplevel as an artist, service provider, and CEO
  • feel confident and in control as a business owner
  • and make BANK along the way

Friend, you're not alone. And we can help.

But to make sure you’re in the right place, tell us this.
Are you ready to be in charge of a thriving business that allows you to:

  • create fun and freedom in your life
  • gives back to you as much as (and more than) you pour into it
  • be a known expert in your industry
  • work with your favorite clients and get paid generously for it

If you’re saying “yes, yes, YES”, then keep reading.  Because this retreat was created FOR YOU.

We’re happy you found us.  Because we’re here to help.

Hi!  We’re Ren and Melanie, your new biz besties.
We’re creative.  We’re fun. We’re f*cking hilarious.

We know what’s like to fall out of love with your business – to be exhausted, resentful, and burnt-out.  It’s a major turn off, right?

BUT…we also know how to bring the spark back like HOT tamales.  With all the fun, deliciousness, and satisfaction of damn good tamale with a spicy marg.

We’re not just here to help you create a thriving business that makes bank and calls in dreamy clients with ease.  We’re also here to help YOU thrive as a confident, empowered, and badass business owner.

Are you ready to uplevel from cute creative chick to empowered CEO and valued artist?

We thought so.  And we’re here to show you how.
(ps – you’re still super cute)

Ren and Melanie invite you to the

She’s an expert in crafting a money making client experience, expressing herself through her photography, and helping YOU be more visible in the world.  On top of being a top pro in the wedding industry, Ren’s on fire with her steady corporate work and fun family shoots. 

When she’s not killing it from behind her lens, you can find her helping businesses and rescuing plants on the House Fur blog, kicking ass on the ice as the only woman in her hockey league, or watching her dogs watch her with googly eyes during her morning rowing session.

As Seen In

Oh, and Melanie is ok, too.  JK.  Of course we’ll tell you all about her! 

MEET MELANIE ST. CLAIR

Melanie is a mindset coach and copywriter for the most brilliant and fun creatives on the internet.

In addition to helping you profit BIG from being more of you, she’s always down for sipping a matcha latte, pointing out and petting dogs on the street, and hopelessly trying to get her cats to take selfies with her.

We love our clients and they love us back

The first time I met this tiny bombshell, I couldn't believe how comfortable I was sharing everything on my heart with her. I felt like we had been friends forever and it blew my mind how she could listen, hold space and then say the words I didn't even know I had to hear.

Other than just spiritual, business, money mentality or life coaching she seems to be able to take on all these roles and support you with all the challenges, fears and doubts that inevitably arise as a businesswoman.

Everyone needs to experience her magic, her love, her knowledge and her ability to help you see the light when it feels like you just keep running into a dead end.

Ren and Caleb's talent and the quality of the product you get from Studio 29 is only part of the package. Once we MET the two of them, we were so impressed by how authentic and down to earth they are. This is not just a transaction for them; they genuinely love what they do and are interested in getting to know their couples & how to best capture their personalities on their wedding day.

Ren has grown to be one of my closest friends & biggest inspirations as I’ve launched my food photography business. Her gift behind the camera is obvious as you look at her work, but what continues to blow me away is how freely she shares her knowledge to lift others up. Advice she’s given me about my camera, lenses, set up, and working with clients has helped me build the 6-figure photography business I never dreamed I could have.

Why We Really F*cking Care About This

shineyretreat-212

Since we met, we’ve sent each other love texts that are more powerful than some of the things we say to our husbands (love you Caleb and Jeramia!).  Our relationship is an exemplary example of true sisterhood – even beyond being powerhouse entrepreneurs.

But we didn’t want to keep it all to ourselves.  We want to share our light, joy, and love for each other (and what we do) with more women.  We want to share this love and all our knowledge with YOU.

Because the more that we witness, honor, and support each other, the more money, impact, and transformation we create in our lives and for the world.

The only question is: are you ready to be a part of our ripples of sisterhood?
