Spend 4 Transformational Days In A Tropical Paradise, Connect 1-On- With Your Child & Make Memories They'll Never Forget
We get it. You're swamped. We too know what it feels like to be drowning in a busy schedule. Conferences, board meetings (the boring kind), phone calls, dinners, lunches and coffee dates with clients, deadlines, and inboxes all perpetuate the endless treadmill called work. We act like there's nothing we can do about it, like your kids must understand that it's something you have to do. After all, look at what you've been able to provide for them and they don't seem to mind that it's been months since you've spent any quality time with them.
The funny thing about work is, despite it consuming 90% of your life, it seems to be nothing more than other peoples' intentions for how you should spend your time. We would never want to admit this, but it's true. Whether you work for yourself or for someone else, everyone always needs something, and it always needs to be done TODAY.
Well, we've got news for you. Your kids need something too. They need YOU. But don't expect them to tell you that because they're not even sure they need you. After all, they have Facebook, texting, video games and a flourishing social life that keep them pretty busy too.
But, like most parents of tweens and teens, you probably worry what type of man or woman your child will grow into. You wonder if they have a clear sense of purpose or a vision of what they want to achieve in life. You pray that you've instilled within them unwavering moral values to help them make the right decisions. And you hope they have a strong enough sense of self-confidence and leadership that will ensure they not follow the "wrong" crowd.
The truth of the matter is, your child won't be a child forever and now is the time to do whatever you can to make sure he or she develops into the person you know they are meant to be.
Let's face it, it's not like the broken school-system, social media, or iPhone apps will do the trick. What you need to do is spend quality, one-on-one time with your child and create the deep, meaningful bond and sense of mutual trust that stems from it.
Now, we know what you're probably thinking… you have or at least have tried to spend quality time with your child but they're in that "phase" where hanging with mom or dad is just not cool. Heck, we've all been there and can probably remember feeling the exact same way about our parents. But let us ask you a question.
What is your most memorable childhood moment spent with your parents? Got your answer? Ok good. We've asked hundreds of moms and dads this exact question and what we've found is that 90% of the answers are the same. For many, the most memorable childhood moment was time they spent away with their parents. This means vacations, holidays or time spent away from home, school, work, friends, and, most likely, technology.
Over the last 10 years, we've researched how to create these memorable moments in an environment that fortifies the loving bond between parent and child. We've also studied the countless ways in which children learn and become receptive to new ideas and information-ones that plant within them a strong sense of purpose, motivation, contribution, and appreciation.
That's why are pleased to tell you about Board Meetings, specially designed parent child surfing retreats that combine quality time and beach activity with experiential education and high-caliber training not taught in school.
So, on top of getting world-class surf lessons from expert surfing entrepreneurs, you and your child will also be taken through powerful trainings on 6 key life areas that we believe form the basis of Experiential Education.
Introducing The 6 Pillars of Experiential Education
Imagine your child with unwavering self-confidence and strong moral values so that you can be 100% sure they'll make the right decisions in life and move confidently toward fulfilling their purpose. We believe this is the single most important pillar of Experiential Education that serves as the foundation for the remaining pillars we teach during each one of our Board Meetings.
Entrepreneurialism is one of America's most untapped resources. With a broken school system that focuses simply on "good enough" education for the average student, your child's genius, creativity and problem-solving skills are left to wither. At Board Meetings, we encourage outside-the-box thinking so your child can gain a sense of leadership, innovation and ownership that inspires them to dream BIG.
We whole-heartedly believe in empowering children to make smart financial decisions that will benefit them for years to come. As successful real estate investors, we know the importance of properly managing, saving and spending money for long-term financial health-something else not taught in your average classroom!
In our opinion, contribution serves as the most powerful approach to ingraining a higher sense of value, gratitude, and self-worth in children. They often lack appreciation for what they have in life because they lack a true awareness of what others don't. During our Board Meeting retreat, you and your child will be able to participate in a hands-on "give back day" to help a local community in need. So, you can feel good knowing that part of your Board Meeting ticket price is going to those less fortunate. Oooh, and doesn't it feel good?!
These days, parents are more "connected" than ever to their child. You can Tweet, Text, IM, Skype and Face Time anytime. But, ironically, parents have never had a worse connection with their children. At Board Meetings, we focus on bridging this gap so your child feels comfortable coming to you for guidance and advice FIRST. This is a little something we like to call the "home team advantage". You've heard that you're a sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with, well we believe this is especially true for children who sponge up anything and everything around them, both consciously and subconsciously. So, in addition to focusing on improving the relationship at home, we also stress the importance of your child building supportive and positive friendships outside the home.
Last but not least, this pillar of Experiential Education is all about encouraging healthy life decisions from an early age. In a country where obesity is out of control, there is an ever-increasing need for proper education around physical and nutritional health. At every Board Meeting we get active and stress the importance of maintaining high levels of energy through proper diet and exercise. No video games, TVs or Facebook allowed! All the fun we have is outside and off the couch!

Why Attend A Board Meetings Retreat?
You'll get much needed one-on-one quality time with your son or daughter AWAY from home. Attending a Board Meeting is the perfect opportunity to invest in your MOST important relationship and improve the way you show up as a parent, mentor and friend in your child's life. We've engineered some powerful team activities and bonding exercises to ensure you head home feeling closer and more connected than ever before.
You'll get to spend a few days surfing, lounging and bonding with your child in a beautiful, beach paradise away from your desk, computer, and inbox. Sure, you could send your child off to summer camp to experience connection, belonging, teamwork and fun... and you can attend all the conferences, workshops and seminars you want to further your personal development or network with like-minded people, but what about attending an event that merges the best of both in an environment that facilities connection and bonding between you and your child? Well, Board Meetings does just that. It's a unique retreat like nothing you've ever experienced before.
You'll meet other like-minded entrepreneurs and professionals. We accept 22 parent child teams to attend each Board Meeting. That means that not only will your child meet 21 positive and motivated friends but you'll get the chance to connect with 21 like-minded, conscious parents all passionate about being the best mom or dad they can be and investing in their child's future. We've even devised special post-retreat online groups to make sure you and your child can stay in contact with your new friends long after you've gone back home. That way you can continue to support and encourage one another. Don't be surprised if you leave the Board Meeting with lifelong friends.
You'll get powerful training from some of the world's best and brightest entrepreneurs. In addition to the surfing and other outdoor activities, we'll also be bringing in some incredible people to share their most powerful ideas on the topics of mindset, business, money, contribution, family and well-being. Studies have proven that people tend to have their biggest breakthroughs and more powerful business ideas when they are away from the office, in an open relaxed, connected environment that allows creativity to flourish. We've had entrepreneurs walk away from a Board Meeting with million dollar business ideas.
You'll get to witness your child supporting others in need. At every Board Meeting, we focus on the importance of contribution, community, and lending a hand to those who face difficult life challenges and have special needs.
