Reset, Refocus, and REFRESH

This weekend retreat is for the aspiring and established woman entrepreneur who wants to elevate her life and her business mentally, spiritually, and financially.

During this 3-day unforgettable weekend, we will gather together to be empowered and equipped to shift into the next phase in our lives. Through our sessions on brand clarity and expansion, our power packed women panel, and our fitness and wellness activities—each day is designed to provide an experience tailored for you.

This luxury experience will create the opportunity for you to engage with ambitious and goal driven womenpreneurs and be motivated to execute your game changing ideas.

Normalizing Black Girl Luxury

For decades, women of color have been the originators and creators of so much of what we see today. But their journey to becoming trailblazers has been far from easy. Black women have fought, struggled, and persevered to establish a strong legacy. We have tirelessly worked hard, and earned the right to enjoy the fruit of our labor. However, over the course of time, women of color have experienced shame and backlash for living and showcasing luxury lifestyles.

As black women, society has deemed us incapable of accomplishing net breaking goals and unworthy of experiencing the finer things in life. The Secret Sauce to Success, founded by CEO Monique Rodriguez, has created a luxury experience to destroy that stigma.

Monique Rodriguez


Through sharing her personal journey towards healthy hair restoration Monique amassed an amazing following of supporters, who have become the lifeblood of the brand, and managed to turn her idea into a multi-million dollar brand in 7 years. This multi-million dollar brand, now known as MIELLE Organics, has grown from one to over 25 products spread across multiple product lines, addressing specific customer needs. In 2021, Monique and her husband, COO Melvin Rodriguez, broke a major glass ceiling securing a 9 figure investment deal from Berkshire partners.

MIELLE has been distributed in more than 87 countries and can be found in more than 100,000 stores across the U.S. in retailers such as Sally Beauty, Target, CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart, just to name a few. Now a global sensation, MIELLE has won numerous awards and been featured in top publications and media outlets.
