FRIDAY 27 JAN 2023 8.30AM TO 3PM


Set aside a whole day just for you!

 At the retreat,

in just 5 easy steps

You will design your year.

Each step is intentionally both soul searching and intensely practical.


The best way to plan for the future is to learn from the past. You will reflect on 6 key areas of your life over the last 12 months to learn from the good, the bad and the downright ugly.


Next you will be given free reign to dream about all the possibilities the year ahead could bring. #nolimits


Take your dreams and create inspiring goals in the 6 key areas of your life. Choose a word for the year.  you will then create your Vision Board.


Goals and dreams without a plan are really just wishes. In this step you will create an ACTION plan for each of your goals.


This is where the rubber hits the road. You get to LIVE out your Year by Design. The best is yet to come.

This all sounds great but what if….

...I have never been goal oriented?
No worries! I walk you through every single step bit by bit. You’ll get the hang of it in no time.
...I need help or have questions?
No problem! You will be able to ask questions by emailing Annabel anytime.
... I'm not ready to start?

That’s ok! Sometimes we never ‘feel’ ready. The process youll work through will leave you feeling ready to tackle 2023 with confidence!

... I can't come to the retreat, can I buy the workbook?

YES! I know, so many of you don’t live in Brisbane and for other reasons can’t come to the in person retreat. I have created a workbook you can use to go through the process in your own time (a DIY retreat!). You can buy it professionally printed from Amazon in most places across the globe. BUY HERE.

Hi, I’m Annabel

I have been a goal setter since I was a teenager. I love dreaming and envisioning all that I can achieve in the days ahead.

Back in 2002, before anyone had really heard of them,  I did my training as a life coach and I learnt how to help others create goals for themselves that inspire them to action.

Over the years I’ve coached individuals and groups and run practical workshops on both goal setting and creating vision boards.

Here are some keys that I’ve discovered:

🗝 Too many goals lead to overwhelm, inaction and the feeling of failure.

🗝 Pretty Vision Boards without being connected to inspiring goals and backed up by an action plan amount to not much more than hopes & dreams… wishes really.

🗝 Having an overarching theme or word for the year can really help keep you stay focussed and moving forward.

🗝 Life can ‘disappear’, another year can tick by before we know it!

🗝 I LOVE helping people tune in to their deep desires to get the most out of their lives.

Making the most out of your life starts with making the most out of each year, and by taking some time to invest into this you can set yourself up for success.

I consider it an honour & privilege to guide you through this process. It can be challenging but it’s also a huge amount of fun. Will you join me?
