We are inviting our community of movers and shakers - entrepreneurs, speakers, investors, artists, builders, healers, influencers and more - to join our integrated Mastermind & Retreat

What is a Mastermind?
The concept of a Mastermind group was formally introduced by Napoleon Hill, author of “Think and Grow Rich.

Hill described the Mastermind principle as, “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind”, also known as, the Mastermind.
The Mastermind concept was inspired by Hill's many conversations with the highly successful businessman, Andrew Carnegie, who attributed his entire fortune and success to his Mastermind group.

Our theme this year is Free Your Mind, Body & Spirit

Free yourself from your limitations to go for your most audacious dreams. By pairing a mastermind with a retreat, we are layering modalities through multiple senses to create a transformative, immersive experience that will have lasting effects on your life. Rejuvenate while getting clear on your goals, with a supportive community that will inspire and motivate you.

The summer camp of your dreams is calling you...

In 2017, Elisa transitioned out of a comfortable, good paying 9-5 job to a full-time investor. With 40 completed projects, she became her own boss and managed to work fewer hours but make many times more than her old W2 income. She’s been making a 7-figure profit every year since 2019.
Elisa started her investing journey by purchasing, remodeling, house hacking and owning furnished rentals in San Francisco. She has done a DIY remodel with her husband and also managed rental properties on her own.
Elisa enjoys helping people and sharing her knowledge with others. She currently mentors a few aspiring investors and hopes to empower more women to get started in real estate.

Elisa was born and raised in Beijing, China. After working for Google China briefly, she came to the US to pursue her MBA at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Elisa loves to design her own flips and use unique design features to appeal to buyers. When she isn’t prospecting new properties or supervising on projects, she loves hiking, swimming and traveling. She has been to over 20 countries in 6 continents.
