Scotland Summit Schedule

The Freedom to travel, The Autonomy to make your own decisions, & The Ability to create something different awaits you.

 

Join us for our 2nd annual Doubt Yourself Do It Anyway Summit---- Only $1,500 for an incredible international summit opportunity

 

You deserve everything you want out of life----and we're going to explore the world together, helping you achieve your dreams.

Scotland is a country that is not only beautiful, but it's creatively awe-inspiring.  You'll surround yourself with innovators in the industry while building lifelong connections and absorbing entrepreneurial wisdom and resilience.

This summit is designed to inspire you to think bigger, to pursue your goals, and to stop playing small. Doubt Yourself Do It Anyway is sprinkled in throughout the entire event. 

There are the things that show up in our entrepreneurial journeys that hold us back, that limit us, that keep us playing small, despite our successes and abilities----We're here to shatter these beliefs

The Doubt Yourself Do It Anyway Summit is geared towards all entrepreneurs who are too often held back by self-limiting beliefs.

As therapists, small business owners, and entrepreneurs, we don’t always practice what we preach.

We have all of these great ideas but most of them only reside within our minds, never to be seen by the world.

Our own fears and insecurities convince us that we should play it small, that we should shrink back inside of ourselves, and that we will inevitably FAIL.

Call it impostor syndrome. Call it insecurity. Call it self-doubt…

Whatever you call it, we are going to work through it together and OBLITERATE it so that it no longer paralyzes you from putting your GREATNESS into the world.

Doubt Yourself But DO IT ANYWAY!

(That is the motto of this summit.)
Register Here!

We didn't want to host a summit in a tourist trap, or big city, as we want to ensure you are able to immerse yourselves in the local culture, have beautiful green spaces to decompress in, and have the experience of a lifetime. We love to travel like locals, and let me tell you, Edinburgh and the surrounding Highlands are like stepping into a fairy tale.

I think that the best places to travel to are the hardest to find. I believe that travel is one of the most important things that you can do during your lifetime. Not only do you push yourself out of your comfort zone but you also grow as a human being.


Travel tests you. It’s not always pretty. But the activities you do, the people you meet, the pictures you take, the food you eat, and the landscapes you walk, create memories that last forever.

 

We are going to spend our time in medieval Edinburgh, living among the people, eating delicious food, and truly experiencing the magic that Scotland has to offer.

The breathtaking views are literally everywhere you look.

This is a quirky, historic, medieval city. There is an old-world charm, which is a part of the beauty of this experience.

We are limiting the attendance to 200 total guests.

You can be a mental health entrepreneur, a small business owner, or someone who wants to travel and grow. We don't care, as long as you want to have this incredible life-changing experience.

 

 **We have negotiated a discounted room block @ £259/night for attendees who want to stay on site from 7/13-7/18/2025.  Breakfast is included for hotel guests**
