Find your tribe

Being a digital entrepreneur can be isolating, which is why it is so important to build a community of like-minded people to offer you support. While you can find the women of Pangea Dreams catching the sunrise at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, climbing to the top of Mount Batur in Bali, or frolicking through tea plantations in Sri Lanka, there is a lot of thought and strategy that goes into that perfect shot.

This sense of community is what inspired Tracy to create Pangea Dreams. As a freelance photographer who was constantly travelling, she turned to her social media channels to share her experiences and connect with other entrepreneurial spirits. Soon she was receiving hundreds of emails from women all over the world asking how they could do the same. Tracy then decided to host a retreat with a few other industry experts to share their knowledge, and the response was overwhelming.

“Each Pangea Dreams retreat gives you the chance to meet like-minded, ambitious and creative women. You leave inspired, motivated and ready to take on the world.” - Tracy Komlos

Grow your skills

Building an online presence is more than just taking a good photo, which is why Pangea Dreams focuses on growing women’s entire skillset with workshops in digital marketing, business strategy, videography, wellness and more. Building a portfolio and getting first-hand experience also helps show off your business savvy and dedication, which is why Pangea Dreams works closely with various lifestyle, fashion and travel brands to give women the opportunity to create content for real-life campaigns while on the retreat.

Persistence is key

Pangea Dreams creates a network of ultimate #BossBabes that support each other far after the retreat is over. Alumni of the retreats are proof that anyone can turn their passion into purpose if they are determined. 86% of alumni got brand collaboration offers just two weeks after their retreat ended and 70% were able to turn their social media channels into their full-time jobs in less than a year.

Whether it’s creating videos, capturing photos, building websites or writing stories, take a chance and believe in your own abilities. The hardest part is getting started, so tomorrow as you swipe through your Instagram feed or read about the next start-up success, ask yourself, could this be me? The answer is yes, it can.
