backstage newsletter Oct 24, 2019


I am coming off a major high after hosting my exclusive All Rise Workshop and Retreat for women who speak and influence in beautiful Fort Myers, Florida. I welcomed six incredible women, along with my team, to the luxurious grounds of Miromar Lakes for 3 days dedicated solely to the art of storytelling.

I poured so much of my heart, soul and 30 years experience into this intimate experience. It felt amazing to witness the transformations occurring in the room as the women let down their guards, stripped away all pretenses and got to the heart of the matter- their stories.

Plus, it doesn’t hurt either that the location is absolutely stunning! There is nothing better than having a tranquil and inspiring space in which to create and express.

Because I love this retreat so much, I want to dedicate this issue of Backstage with Darieth to sharing my personal experience of the retreat with you!

I hope you enjoy!



P.S. My calendar is full of women who are saying “yes!” to their dream of crafting a more beautiful life and business! If you’re ready to journey alongside me and other creative women making their dreams come true, book into my calendar here.

Sharing with the ladies how to tell their stories in a beautiful luxurious room with views of the lake.


Time to take the stage and deliver their stories.

I could sit here and rave all day about how wonderful the retreat was, but you don’t just have to take my word for it. We sat down with several of the ladies who attended the retreat to get their honest review. Here’s what they had to say...

Before Carmen joined us she was feeling overwhelmed by how to curate her story into a single signature speech. Listen in to hear how the retreat impacted the development of her story.

Melanie has always had a difficult time opening up in order to connect with her audience. Here’s how she believes this retreat affected the future of her business.

Surround yourself with people who care about your vision.

You’ve probably heard it said that you ARE the company you keep! This is why it’s so important that you surround yourself with people who believe in you, who support your vision, and who are committed to helping you step into your greatness and become the woman you are destined to be!

Hosting a world class speaker workshop and retreat requires a talented, dedicated and professional team to make it a success! I’m so grateful for having a team who made this a dream come true for all of the speakers at the retreat and me too!
