Tell us about your business
MYRetreat Inc. helps employees manage their stress, so employers can retain their talent.
The Chocolate Mindfulness App enables employees to ease into mindfulness with the familiar habit of eating chocolate. We created the Chocolate Mindfulness App to virtually boost wellbeing while fusing the health and wellness industry within the chocolate industry.
Have you always owned this business or what made you decide to start it?
With many responsibilities, including that of mom, wife, and social worker, I was not prioritizing the things I enjoy. My passport wasn't getting any new stamps; I hadn't been on a volleyball court, and I was getting zero alone time.
My friends and colleagues were not prioritizing their wellness either.
So, I set out to create a solution to increase work life habits that leave people feeling peaceful.
We like to say that everyone has a journey to Pepperlane. How do you use Pepperlane as a female entrepreneur balancing business with motherhood?
As a Pepperlane Leader, I take pride in having the Boost as an open invitation to fellow female entrepreneurs.
I enjoy inviting them to a space where they can transparently discuss current challenges and boost their business.

What do you struggle with?
My kids are engaging and charismatic. When they ask to go on social media to support MYRetreat, it helps attract content engagement. What I don't know is whether their involvement brings in business.
I've received feedback from fellow Pepperlaners that a Chocolate Mindfulness offering for moms with their children would be beneficial.
This year, I plan to test out that recommendation. I will begin by sharing the concept in an upcoming Boost, and get real time feedback on whether a "Mommy & Me" event would be well received.
How can someone best work with you and what is your core product offering?
First, download the Chocolate Mindfulness App. Right now, it's free. Once you've checked out or bite-sized Chocolate Mindfulness Retreat you can join a live virtual Chocolate Mindfulness Retreat. From there, you can decide which custom Chocolate Mindfulness Wellness Workshop is right for your company or organization.
Where can clients learn more about you or purchase a package?
Connect with me through my Pepperlane Profile to schedule a custom Chocolate Mindfulness Wellness Workshop for your company or organization.
That's the beauty of Pepperlane, we support one another.
What is your favorite feature of Pepperlane membership?
I value the accountability email, a week or so following a Boost. It's a reliable reminder that I've committed to 1 Simple Act, and I love being able to add one more task to my "Got Done List".
