I help change makers unplug from technology and reclaim the power of their innate wildness, for sake of self and planet.

7/10: Actually I do lie in bed worrying about reclaiming my innate wildness and how to help others do the same! I like this and give it a 7 But I also agree with all your suggestions Tad [Hargrave]. Thanks for this awesome forum!
8/10: I love the general concept of this, but I’m not sure what “reclaiming the power of my innate wildness” actually means in practice (this may just mean I’m not part of your niche, of course).
6/10: Not sure if you coach or take people out in the wilderness to connect?
6/10: Intrigued because my whole family could use some unplugging. But . . . I don’t view us as being “change makers.” I think of 2 extremes of “change makers:” those who care about the planet and those who care about themselves. Ego is a big thing to overcome — are you addressing them both with this statement? I’m not sure you can . . . The ego-centric change makers (like a lot of the faculty on my local university campus) won’t necessarily realize that they need to unplug for their health; and they certainly won’t unplug for the sake of the planet.
Perhaps: “I help visionary leaders break from technology to (re)discover their wild soul”?
Is this a solitary retreat at a location you provide? Is it a group retreat where you provide guided activities with some solitude?
6/10: Not sure what my innate wildness is all about of why I would want it!!
This sounds awesome, but is this a workshop? A retreat? Do they do this in groups? Individually?
6/10: Don’t quite get what you offer — yes, wildness . . . but what that is is different for each one of us?
How will it benefit me to tap into my “innate wildness?” Can you elaborate? And how do I know if I’m a change maker? What characteristics might I have?
10/10: Sweet. so important.
I like this, and power of innate wildness hooked me. I don’t think it needs the last 7 words because you said change makers at the start.
6/10: What kind of change makers? What do they get when they reclaim innate wildness?
7/10: It sounds fun but I don’t know what it is. Could be drumming in the woods or networking events, not sure.
7.5/10: You had me with changemakers unplugging but got lost at innate wildness being crucial to the planet. I think you have something very powerful here if there was a clearer connection between the type of change these changemakers want to make, the difference they see is possible for the planet and how their wildness is a critical to making that change happen.
7/10: is this about technology or innate wildness or time management?
