Facilitation Skills Development education retreat/seminar for Sex Educators and Sex-Positive Professionals.
ATTENTION: Sex Educators and Sex-Positive Professionals!
Are You Ready To Make A Bigger Impact, Create More Raving Fans, and Make More Money? All While Staying True To YOUR Calling and Having More Fun?
This offering is from Reid Mihalko a teacher who comes HIGHLY recommended. Take a look and join us!
I’ve Spent the Last 3 Years and $35,000 Studying With Business’s Best And Brightest, Testing That Know-How On My Own Career, and Developing Approaches That Will Let YOU Shortcut Your Path To Success!
If you’re tired of being the best kept secret in your field… Of struggling to make ends meet while your friends and family disapprove… Of worrying if it’s really worth sharing your gifts with the world and doubting if sex education will ever payoff financially as a career… If you’re ready to quit sacrificing your well-being and peace of mind, and hungry to make a difference in people’s lives AND MAKE A LIVING, then this is for you.
Too many smart, savvy sex educators and sex-positive professionals struggle to pay the rent. You have a message that is worth sharing. A message that people NEED. Yet, it seems like people are always asking you to lower your rates, teach for free, and give another chunk of yourself for nothing.
How can we get people to see the value and transformation great sex and relationship information brings to their lives? And how do we get them to help support OUR lives financially while we transform theirs emotionally/physically/
I was where you are now. I knew my calling, and had seen what I taught change lives and transform relationships. Yet, I could barely afford to get myself to gigs and pay my bills at the same time. I felt hesitant to call myself a sex and relationship educator because I was juggling 3 jobs, and sex education was the fourth! Working all the time to pay the bills gave me little time to build my career and book teaching gigs. When I could, people would try to knock my workshop prices down, and I felt like I had to take what was offered just to get my name out there and to fulfill on my calling. When I showed up to teach, I was exhausted and worried. The harder I hustled, the less I got accomplished, and the more resentful, worried, and angry I grew.
I looked to my sex ed heroes for answers, only to realize that like me, so many of them were struggling, burnt-out, and broke.
I saw other people, in other professions, making money (and actually happy), so I turned my geeky focus onto their industries and studied what they were doing that was making them successful.
I started comparing their business practices, and I studied what their various industries might have in common business-wise. I sought out and interviewed my friends who were super successful in business. What they revealed to me and what I discovered, I “copy/pasted” and tested out on my brand and my career.
If something worked, I kept it and ran with it. What didn’t work, I modified until it did work within the field of sex and relationship education, or I discarded it.
From cutting-edge ways of leveraging social media to becoming a recognized authority in one’s field… From marketing to colleges for paid lecturing gigs to reaching out to adult toy companies for sponsorships… From successful 1-on-1 coaching models to online course and curriculum design… From pitching television shows on sex and relationships in Hollywood and working with the media… To contract negotiation and pricing one’s offerings…
I researched, geeked-out on, and tested more ways of monetizing the field of sex education than any other sex educator I knew. If there was something I couldn’t test out on my own business, I sought out those who had, and picked their brains for clues that might apply to me and my career.
It was slow at first… And sometimes painful. I made mistakes. I applied great information in the wrong ways. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I reinvented the square en route to reinventing the wheel.
After 6 years of trial and error, I discovered a secret.
I had a breakthrough that made a difference in how many people I could reach, how much I could change their lives, and how much people would value my work and be happy to compensate me for my efforts. I took a scary and vulnerable leap of faith and within 6 months, I began making a living. I quit my other jobs and became a sex and relationship educator full time.
For the next 3 years, as my income grew, I invested most of that income into testing my “secret theory” by digging deeper into business, taking more seminars, and testing my theories on my own brand.
I became really good at spotting “old paradigm” advice that was already -or about to become- obsolete, and I became GREAT at identifying content and advice that had an edge on what others were teaching. Because of those skills, and a little luck, I found some experts who taught me AUTHENTIC marketing (not the sleazy stuff that you find all over the web), and something HUGE shifted for me!
This Was a Huge Revelation and Nearly Doubled My Income…
I’d never been able to get over my distaste of pushy and “salesy” selling. Pushy sales tactics always felt like when someone tried to convince me to have sex with them: It felt like my “no” wasn’t being respected, and worse, I felt like I was just a conquest to them.
Authentic marketing made me feel the way I wanted to leave people feeling (and the way I wanted to feel, too): that any engagement we consented to would be of mutual benefit to all involved, and that everyone be left feeling seen, respected, and a better person for the interaction, regardless if the answer was yes or no.
All along, my aversion to “salesy” sales was my intuition telling me “this isn’t your style” of selling. I didn’t have to “get over anything” to be a good business person! I wasn’t broken, AND I wasn’t bad at sales! I just hadn’t found a business approach to sales that was in alignment with who I was, how I like to teach people, and where the industry is going as a whole. After that, I religiously implement the few simple steps of authentic marketing throughout my business, and my revenue increased tremendously.
Excited by authentic marketing and sales, I dug deeper into other areas of business. I went to class after class, attending seminars and online courses that had nothing to do with sex education, looking for the best information I could find. When I found great material, I devoured it, and then tested it on my own business to see if it would work in the field of sex ed.
I realized that, similar to sales, there are different business models and revenue streams to choose from in the business world. I learned the difference between having a job, owning a job, and owning a business and WHY KNOWING THE DIFFERENCE is often the difference between someone being frustrated and broke or in high demand, happy, and at the top of their industry.
I applied my geeky ideas on “Dating Your Species” in relationships to business models, and how picking a congruent business model and combining it with knowing your #1 and 2 teaching styles will help you define your brand and make money in ways that excite you rather than shut you down.
I was finally able to experience myself as “good at business” all because I was able to “date” a business model that was a great fit for me. OMG! Business could actually feel fun and easy? Who knew! Maybe I wasn’t destined to fail at business like my father had!
I continued to (and still do) seek out, invest in, and learn from the who’s-who of internet marketing, curriculum design, and business… Brendon Burchard, Jeff Walker, Callen Rush, Lisa Sasevich, Mel Abraham, among others. In field testing what I’ve learned, I built a Youtube channel with over 800,000+ views, tinkered with Facebook ads for the first time, built my email list of raving customers, cultivated a loyal Twitter following, held a live event in Las Vegas, and sold over a 1000 sex geek tees to people all over the globe.
It wasn’t a pretty journey. Over the past 10 years, there were lots of late nights, several almost evictions, one bankruptcy, years without health insurance or going to the dentist, a daunting amount of back-taxes, and lots of teeth gnashing, shameful tears, and hair pulling. But it was all worth it. Why? Because I was able to transform all that.
As my business and career grew more quickly, I asked myself, “Was what I was learning scalable or was it only going to work while I was small? What could I be doing better, more powerfully? What hadn’t I figured out yet?” And most importantly of all: “Would my theories and best practices work for other sex educators on their businesses?”
It was that last question that shifted everything for me and transformed my life because I started thinking about every sex educators’ business, and I started seeing sex education as it’s own industry.
All of a sudden, the ladder of success I was climbing became a freight elevator that I could invite all the other sex educators to climb aboard! We could push the Up Button together!
And that’s when I went back through everything I had learned and everything I had implemented… I started distilling these concepts down to what works well -not just for me and my business- but for heart-centered, sex-positive entrepreneurs like you and me. No longer would my sex ed heroes or my peers have to remain frustrated and broke.
To date, I’ve had over 150,000 conversations with men and women about sex and relationships. Over 50,000 people have attended my workshops and lectures. I’ve been on TV in more countries and languages than I can recall. Been paid to lecture at colleges and universities across the United States and Canada. I’ve gotten feedback from thousands of individuals telling me that I’ve helped them have better sex and deeper relationships. I’ve even had a coaching client and his wife tip me $5000 for 2-weeks worth of sessions (that’s $5000 on top of what he paid me for my time and knowledge) and it was his idea. And they even hired me again!
Believe me, it has been a hell of a wild and crazy learning curve. I’m proud to say that today… My taxes are all paid up, I’ve got a proper retirement fund AND health insurance, my teeth are healthy, my relationships are thriving, and I even have non-sex educators coming to me now for… Guess what? For business advice!
Looking back, if I knew then what I know now, everything I achieved could have been sped-up and with much less worry and drama.
How do I know this? Because I’ve been coaching and mentoring dozens of sex educators these past several years, teaching them in just a fraction of the time what took me years to learn! And, as they test my principles on their own careers and businesses, I’m proud to report that these sex educators have been able to achieve faster results with much less worry and drama!
If you have a passion for transforming people’s lives… I want to make YOUR journey to success faster and easier than mine.
The world needs YOU. People desperately NEED what you’re teaching. There are people living quiet lives of desperation, hurting, and hurting one another, because they don’t have access to the information that comes easy to you… Not every person on the planet is going to resonate with my teachings, my style, or what I look like. But many will resonate and feel drawn to YOU and YOUR TEACHINGS!
The sex education industry needs all the diversity and awesome-sauce we can pour out into the world, and I want to help you get your message to those who need it, and I want you to be well compensated for answering your calling. Why? So you can afford to continue making the world a better, more loving, pleasure-positive place! For how long? For rest of your life, I’m hoping!
I’m not promising you’ll get my results over night. You will need to show up and apply what I teach. But YOU CAN SHAVE YEARS OFF YOUR PATH by following the simple steps and concepts I’ll share with you.
Imagine Your Life 12-Months From Now…
Imagine a year from now, when you wake up knowing your workshops and courses are full weeks in advance…
What would it be like to have a waitlist of clients wanting to work with you?
To get emails from colleges and universities inviting you to lecture to their students and asking you what your budget is to do so?
Would it feel good to have online products that people are raving and sharing about on Facebook, placing orders for from across the world, letting you help people (and earn money) while you sleep?
What would it feel like to have your loved ones beaming with pride over your work, calling and congratulating you because they just saw you on television spreading your message?
These Results Are Possible for YOU…
These results are based on an easy-to-follow process I developed that guides you through the steps, teaches you how to think about the business of sex education in a way that’s natural, easy and authentic for you, and lets you take on new projects, topics, and clients powerfully.
I mentor a large number of sex educators and sex-positive professionals. I’ve seen the changes in their businesses, and I’ve seen it in my own. In fact, my business has grown so much that I don’t have the time to mentor educators one-on-one anymore, which why you’re reading this right now… Because I had to figure out a way to make what I know accessible to those hungry and passionate sex educators who deserve to take their careers to unprecedented levels and reach the world with their message… And I finally cracked the code and figured out how to do teach YOU what I know and how to implement it easily SO YOU GET RESULTS!
If You Think You Can’t Do What I Did, You’re Wrong.
It doesn’t matter if you aren’t tech savvy – I’ll show you how to get work done quickly and inexpensively, so that your productivity and confidence replaces your stagnation and worry.
It doesn’t matter if you wrestle with money issues or if the words “marketing” and “sales” make you wretch – I’ll show you exactly what I did to heal my business and money issues, and how YOU can do it in empoweringly easy and fun ways so you can breathe ease and playfulness into your career and be an unstoppable force in sex education.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a big following right now – I’ll show you how to set your career and brand on autopilot so your following grows and your reach expands while you take care of other things.
Even if you don’t have a single product to sell (I’ll teach you how to build one), or haven’t made much money in your business… I’ll walk you through the steps that make you more successful, help people value your work, and position you as an expert in your field.
And, if you do have a business going – whether it’s been for 6-months or sixteen years, I’ll guide you in the best, cutting-edge tools and perspectives so you can turbo charge what you’ve already built and use it as a launching pad for your next wave of success, profit, and ease.

Similar Business Seminars and Events Can Cost You Thousands of Dollars!
Compare Sex Geek Summer Camp to the cost of attending just ONE of the dozens of weekend seminars I’ve gone to… at $1997. (Never mind the additional cost of 3-4 nights stay at the 4-5 star hotel these trainings are usually held at… That’s $600+ PLUS the cost of meals at said 4 or 5 star hotel, which can easily run another $200+ to the bill… This would bring your out of pocket expense to a minimum of $2797 per seminar)
$1997 + 600 + 200 = $2797 per typical business seminar
But before you spend that $2797… You’ve still got to spends hours upon hours researching which event out of the hundreds that exist you’re going to attend… Let’s say you put in 10 hours researching… Depending on what you charge per hour to do what it is that you do… When I first started doing relationship coaching, I charged $60 an hour. Now I charge $300… So that’s…
10 hours at $60/$300 = $600 to $3000 of your time
AND then you’ve got to hope that you pick the right event for you and pray it gives you enough easy-to-implement information so you can make some headway in your career… At the very least you hope to make your money back. At it’s worst, you’re out $3397 to $5797 feeling more frustrated and closer to burnt out and pulling the plug on your dreams of making the world a more sex-positive place…
Cost of attending the wrong seminar = ???
And even if it was a good seminar, you’d still have to translate the business jargon into sex geek speak. And you’d most likely be alone as the one and only sex educator in the room… I know, because I often was the only sex educator in those rooms! Which also meant (despite the most well-meaning efforts of some very smart business types) I had to endure the clunky language and unintentional “isms” that came with the corporate-influenced, sex-negative, hetero-normative and sexist business territory.
Let’s face it, being surrounded by your peers, attending an event that is designed and proven to work for sex-positive professionals, and uses inclusive, body positive, and gender/race/identity/
Green Arrow Priceless.
