January 15-20, 2017: #IndieCruise Mastermind Retreat for Creative Entrepreneurs (by invitation only)

Cruise 2017 Logo

#IndieCruise is IBN’s annual 5-day planning + marketing mastermind adventure retreat for creative entrepreneurs. In 2017, we’ll retreat to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

As the sun is setting over sun-kissed waters and the native wildlife begins to hibernate for the evening – you find yourself walking back to your stunning Club Med accommodations, past private cabanas and sandy white private beaches. You slip into a cozy chair and are greeted by a tropical beverage and soft candle lights under Caribbean stars. You are relaxed and ready to partner with your business and retreat-loving friends to mastermind the next level of your own personal and business success. Registration for 2017 is closed. Registration for 2018 will open soon.
