Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Crush?
A Crush, is a new format of event, we call a Re-Treat. designed to enable you to simultaneously relax and also actively organize what you're clarifying in a written plan.
In the Crush. Re-Treat, you’re guided through a series of quick, timed, writing sprints, that help you define priorities, identify obstacles, set up goals, and move towards action.
Crush. is offered on a free subscription site, with hourly and paid membership options.
Where did the Crush. come from?
Our story begins, not with our founder, but rather, with our first Crusher who was looking for “a personal change playbook”. Her company had success with the corporate change-management program designed by our founder and believed it could be compacted and used for personal success.
Fast-forward, from 2017 to now: we’ve had over 1000 people participate, share their Crushes and give feedback to create the Crush. Re-Treat. We’re additionally thankful for the many advisors, experts, educators, influencers, professional networks, corporate leaders, parents, and students, who have helped us build the method, join our membership and share the Crush. Our first Crusher, continues to advise our development and personally Crush.

Why Should I Attend a Crush?
Most of us think about change as an event- birthdays, losses, and victories... but we’re always in change, and what we do (or don’t do) – is constantly changing us.
Luckily, there are skills you can build to manage change. These include knowing what we truly want and why we want it. We try and offer these in compact "snack" moments.
Once we have these skills we get faster at choosing what to do next. We stay positive, focused, and on path even when we encounter the unexpected or fail.

What’s the Best Way to Crush.? Where Do I Start?
There is no right way to Crush. Crushes are designed to help you get clearer and more focused on how to choose the resources, tools and support we provide to manage change.
Crusher Tips. If You Are:
Not sure it’s right for you | Book a 1 hour. It will give you a “feel” for the Crush.
Planning a big change, or milestone | Book a 2 or 3 hour. You’ll be able to see what you want to practice and get clearer on.
Already invested in lots of mental care | Book a 1 or 2 hour. It’s a great way to get clearer on what to look for, ask for, and adjust in your existing support.
Already on path | Book a 1 or 2 hour Crush. It’s a fast way to tune up existing practices to be more effective.
Mentally Stuck | Try a series of 1 hour and 2 hour Crushes. Be patient and let your mind have a week or two break in between each Crush.
Exhausted, worried and stressed | Try a 1 or 2 hour. Think of this as a mental “system check” where you finish with a clear written map of what’s important, with small adjustments you can make to get to what’s next.
