My time with Lisa Pretto and Janet Wakeland at the recent Gathering for Greatness 2016 event was everything I have hoped to get to assist me in growing my business and more.  We learned the nuts and bolts of how some of the top Demonstrators are doing things:  everything from time management, what equipment and software people use for various needs, got head shots and developed great friendships, too.  I got out of it much more than expected and I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to make progress or to jump start or re-energize your SU business for yourself or your team.  A great time!  Thank you very much, ladies!  Have a joyous day!


“One of the best things you can do for yourself, both personally and professionally is invest in training. Lisa does a great job helping you find out what your talents and strengths are and how to maximize them. She is also great at gathering together other successful individuals and getting them to share their business success stories. She is real and is not setting out to create clones of herself. You will learn how to work smarter, not harder. You will rediscover the joy of your business and how to balance your business life with your personal life. Great practical training, go for it!…..and btw, I didn’t think it was a coincidence that I earned Founder’s Circle after our Minnesota Masters Retreat 🙂

Our team had a wonderful time and my head is spinning from all of the information I learned. Very pertinent information for any Demonstrator no matter where you are, experienced or just starting.  Loved that you kept to the timed schedule so that the speakers and guest speakers could be heard for their entire pitch. Thank you for the veggie tray snacks and the quesadillas, pulled pork mini’s, and the drink tickets!!
Would love to attend a future Gathering For Greatness whenever you’re within driving distance from Michigan. Thank you Lisa and Janet for a great three days!


Thanks for a fabulous weekend! You are a master at creating a welcoming environment and setting the stage for honest reflection and open sharing of ideas. That defines a true retreat leader to me!
I learned so much from you and the other attendees. I came home more inspired from this event than I have felt in a very long time. I am working through my list of actionable items I made that weekend with renewed energy. Thank you for everything!

❤ I loved Masters retreat! For me, it was stepping out of my comfort zone. I’m so glad I did! It opened my heart and soul to new friendships. It gave me an understanding that we all have difficulties in life and allowed me to have a bigger compassion for people. Because what you see going on on the outside doesn’t mean it’s the same on the inside. My heart was full when I left and much to think about. 😉 Thank you ladies for sharing your hearts!

~~Blessings, Beverly Brownell


Thank you again for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing weekend!I am so grateful for this past weekend in so many ways.

How do I sum up a weekend in just a sentence or two? This is hard! 😉

The weekend was not only informative, and inspiring, but the energy in the sharing with each of us was so valuable. My head is still exploding with ideas, and a new perspective with my business! I cannot thank you enough!

Thank you.. so so much.. you are so inspiring, Lisa!

Hi Lisa,page1image16896page1image17056

I completed this training and it was perfect for me! Thank you so much for suggesting this particular one. When you started talking about how demos go to Pinterest or Splitcoast for inspiration and then make all different projects using all different stuff and overwhelm the customers,

you totally described me. I am so excited to make up kits and to narrow my focus for my upcoming events. Thank you for sharing such wonderful tips. I look forward to starting the next training in a few weeks once I’ve gotten a handle on this one.

Good Morning Lisa,
I just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you for your inspirational seminar at our team meeting

with the Trinity Design Stampers at Convention and for the reference material. It hit on so many things that I will be incorporating into my business.

I hope to hear more and soon.

~~Creatively Yours, Debbie Coleby



This was an excellent training!

~~Kelly Harrell



Hello Lisa,

First of all I’d just like to say that I am enjoying all of your trainings. Thank you so much for sharing them. I’m anxious to learn more from you.

~~Cindy Russell


I have taken many of Lisa’s trainings online. Recently she was hired to do a training for my team. Her clear, concise method of delivering her trainings is WONDERFUL! I highly recommend her and her company! You will not regret any training you hire her for!

I first worked with Lisa at her Master’s Retreat Weekend. By asking the difficult questions we, as stampin’ business owners often try to avoid, Lisa guided me through an emotional and introspective weekend. Her fresh business ideas were inspirational. Most importantly she provided me, and continues to provide me, with support long after the weekend was over.

~~Ann Schach


Lisa is a dynamic leader who LISTENS. She understands that passion fuels our businesses. Lisa does everything she can to help her clients achieve great heights of

success in their own businesses while always staying true to who they are. I would highly recommend Lisa as a mentor in whatever your business is, as she has a rich history of starting, running and maintaining more than one type of business

~~Maggie Pinque




I’ve always heard so much about you but, I’ve never had the opportunity to participate in any of your training until this past weekend. Your information was precise, succinct and sensible. I finally made the connection between my blog and my sales. I can’t wait to start putting your teachings into action.

Thank you for taking the time to offer us this training after a long day at the SU! regional conference. You were fun and encouraging to us to adopt the “Can Do” attitude. I’m looking forward to your other seminars & trainings to incorporate into my business.

~~Tisha Copeland



Lisa, I just wanted to thank you for the class on Social Media on Saturday. I do not have a blog but have been wanting to start one. Just a little afraid of the idea but you explained it enough so that I have a better understanding of the different types of social media. You were so helpful and you made a great point on how important it is to have a blog for your business.

I am pretty sure what my niche is and I am excited about the possibilities of what the social media can do for my business. It may be a lot of work upfront but it will pay off eventually.
Thank you again for all of the great information.

~~Charlotte Prestridge


“Your Master’s retreat is unlike anything I have ever done. From start to finish, I was inspired by fresh business ideas and took an honest look at how I spend my time and where my passions lie. It’s so exciting to be implementing those ideas already, along with seeing the positive changes for my downline too!”
