Why You Need to Join Us in December

There is something magical about getting out of your routine and permitting yourself to focus on working on your business.

Spapreneur® Live is a three-day work retreat for you to get clarity and perspective. You'll spend time at my million dollars, multi-award-winning day spa - meeting our staff, experiencing our services, and taking time to ask the questions you want to bring a bit of our success to your wellness business.

And it's not all work - you get spa services, meals, and gifts - because we want this retreat to be - a refresh, recharge, and a fresh start to your success.

Join us!


What Happens During Spapreneur® Live?

Each Day will Feature Hot Seats

Hot seats are times where the group is focused on the issues and challenges in your business.

Spa Services

You get to experience services at DeStress Express - massages, craniosacral, Ashiatsu, skin care, or natural nail care. Get pampered and learn from our award-winning team.

Meal and Experiences

We don't want to think about anything else but working on your business. So we're going to keep you fed and hydrated with your preferred snacks and beverages. Plus, we'll enjoy one breakfast and dinner out and about, plus a fun outing.

Meet Your Host: Ramona Rice

Spapreneur® is a love letter I wrote for my mom, who started DeStress Express without a trustworthy roadmap. She just wanted to massage clients but didn't have a place she loves to work. So she built it. I want all independent Spapreneurs to have a chance of success on their terms.

When I've attended business classes, training, and conferences, I've always walked back into my business, ready to take on new challenges. That's what I want Spapreneur Live to be for you.

Spots are limited as I want this to be impactful for everyone who attends.

What Attending a Live is Like?

Attending a Spapreneur® Live event is unlike any business or spa conference you've attended. First, we're here to focus on your business - not the business we want for you. Second, we cap attendance at five to ensure you get the attention you need to make the changes and growth you want for your business.

Plus, it's fun - just like the podcast or our videos, we want education and business planning to be a joy, not a chore. So there will be snacks, drinks, and goody bags with products you want to get your hands on. Plus, you'll will have a spa service inside of DeStress Express as part of their ticket.

See You in December

Our Venue - DeStress Express

That's right - our whole Spapreneur® Live event will be held inside DeStress Express! The spa that Lynn Graves started in 1996 will open its doors. This means you can meet the massage therapists, talk to our front desk team, and see where the magic happens.

And because we're not in a stuffy hotel ballroom you can be relaxed - wear what you want, take off your shoes. Afterall if you're part of Spapreneur® you're family.

What is Newport News Like?

What is Newport News Like?

Newport News, VA, is part of Hampton Roads - when you're booking flights, you can choose Norfolk (ORF) or Newport News/Williamsburg (PHF) airports. We also have Amtrak. We suggest you book at one of the many nearby hotels, including the City Center Marriott, within walking distance of the spa.

We're close to many restaurants and stores, so if you happen to forget anything, you'll be able to pick it up easily. Also, we have free parking at our spa.

If you're planning on making a vacay from Spapreneur® Live, Hampton Roads is an incredible location. We're close to Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, and other popular destinations.
