Need some focused down time to work on your business?
Some dedicated content creation time? For that book, that online course, that raft of articles or videos you've been meaning to get done, but never seem to find the time to focus on?
Some dedicated business planning time?
Know you need to get away from your every day life to get it done?
Sick of seeing it on your to-do list?
How about a Content Creation Getaway in Ubud, Bali?
You need some time out. No distractions, no interruptions, just a comfortable working space where you can work 24/7 if you need to (in between massages and restful sleep of course). You’ve heard a lot about living and working in Bali but you wouldn’t know where to start and you’d really just like someone to arrange it all for you.
Get a 100% private, personalised experience.
Experience life in Ubud, Bali, hosted by myself and my gorgeous Balinese team and network of assistants, drivers, cooks, healers, classes, experiences and more.
Take a load off, get some work (and relaxing!) done, get looked after, and best of all just let someone else do all the thinking.
You make all the choices and let the running around and organisation be done for you.
No getting ripped off, no wild goose chases, be welcomed by a local who has done the hard yards before you, and will ensure your stay is hassle free and tailored to exactly what you need.
All you need to do is book your flights. The rest will be sorted out for you. Bliss!
Wrap your head around 6 days of this.
A house angel who takes care of everything for you – the washing, the washing up, the cleaning, even making your bed every morning. Fresh fruit magically appears in the fridge cut up into bite size portions so if you feel like making a smoothie first thing in the morning, it’s all there in the fridge waiting for you. If the thought of lifting a finger is too much, all food is fully catered; everything from banana pancakes to a traditional Nasi Goreng (fried rice) – and everything you can imagine in between: a fresh plate of Mexican food, an organic vegan salad, the best grill Ubud has to offer, the list goes on. Your only decisions in the morning really are: what am I going to do today – read my book? get a massage? or get a serious amount of work done?
- 6 nights’ accommodation in a queen sized bedroom with ensuite, and private work desk,
- super fast wifi,
- 2 x 60 minute massages (or mani pedi),
- 2 outings, including a traditional Balinese Hindu water blessing, and a Sound Healing session at the Pyramids of Chi. There is a range of other options available on demand such as shopping excursions, cooking classes, art classes, silver jewellery making, mountain bike tours and many more (see the full range of options here.)
- daily continental breakfast, fresh fruit snacks, cold pressed juices, lunch and dinner
- transfers to and from the International Airport in Bali (or Kuta, Seminyak, Legian, Nusa Dua, Uluwatu, Candi Dasar or other locations in central Ubud),
- morning accountability sessions,
- daily progress check-ins
- four half day sessions with Maria Doyle, to
- design your learning product (courses, workshops, keynotes),
- develop your curriculum (exactly what theories, demonstrations, activities and marekting language do you need to include?), and/or
- create your resources (presentations, workbooks, videos).
- additional coaching available on demand if required
- personal assistants available for hire (perfect if you need another pair of hands for video production days)
Need to create some videos?
You can also hire a recording studio which includes air-conditioning, bathroom, a personal assistant, lighting, tripods, lapel microphone and choice of 3 backdrops, for a fraction of what it would cost in Australia. Jane Webster of Code9Parent (pictured) managed to get all 5 sales videos and Module Introduction videos completed in one, focused day (which included a trip out through the rice paddies for a gourmet lunch).
Why is it different to just booking a hotel or AirBnb place?
- bilingual host on demand,
- house maid for 4 hours per day and a fully equipped kitchen including a Vitamix for your afternoon power shakes,
- modern, clean, fresh furnishings
- incidentals including drinking water and daily laundry service,
- fully equipped working space, dedicated fibre-optic internet connection (10mbps), surge protected powerboards, and electrical adapters to suit Australian devices,
- a range of comfortable seating options including fitballs, office chairs, bean bags, couches and regular chairs
- bookcase of travel, language and wellness reading materials including a full set of WomanKind Magazines, colouring in materials, Sudoko books, and fitness gear (yoga mats and weights)
- personalized pre-arrival shop so your favourites are ready and waiting for you in the fridge and pantry (provided to you at cost)
In other words, it's not a hotel, it's like a home away from home, that comes complete with a host whose love it is to share this gorgeous tropical paradise with her guests. Seriously. What else do you need?

What does a typical day look like?
7 - 8am: We start the day with some gentle exercise (if you'd like to join me for a walk through the rice paddies),
8 - 9am: We set our intentions for the day over breakfast, where we'll discuss any blocks or challenges you think you might have, and set realistic goals to work towards for the day.
The rest of the day: We decide how we're going to spend the morning, afternoon and evening, punctuated with check ins at lunch and dinner to report on progress, and get support for moving forward.
It's up to you how and when you use your coaching hours with me. Most clients choose to spend a few hours with me prior to arrival, to make sure they have a solid plan for when they arrive. Others figure all that out when they get here.
You are in control. No pressure to work, or relax, or go on an adventure: you've got your own private working space and the day is yours to dictate.
Hear what Shannon had to say about her experience...
These Getaways aren't for everyone - is it for you?
The Getaways are for clients working with me on learning content creation (a book, articles, presentations, a course, a keynote, workshops, etc).
If you're not yet an existing client but you'd like to join one of my Getaways, it is advisable to complete one of the included half day sessions with me before you arrive, to ensure that you'll be well prepared and have a solid plan for when we're here working together.
