10 Ways You’ll Have the Time of Your Life at the Drop Ship Lifestyle Retreat
Every year over 100 Drop Ship Lifestyle students gather for four days of networking, learning, and fun. During these retreats we have eCommerce experts present on topics including paid traffic, content marketing, email marketing, conversion rate optimization, selling your store, plus a whole lot more.
Our retreats are business in the morning, adventures in the afternoon and late into the night!
It’s a time when entrepreneurs make serious breakthroughs that change their career while also getting out of their comfort zone and changing their life. It’s a place where friends are made on connections deeper than a shared interest in eCommerce.
On October 19th, we will be kicking off our fourth Drop Ship Lifestyle Annual Member’s Retreat in the incredible Playa del Carmen, Mexico!
Drop Ship Lifestyle Retreats Around the World
In 2014, we held our first ever retreat in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We had nine keynote speakers, who are all experts in their fields ranging from content marketing to how to sell your store for huge profits! After morning conference talks and coworking, the entire crew headed out for once in a lifetime activities. We met tigers at Tiger Kingdom, we bathed elephants at the Elephant Sanctuary, we slid up and down Sticky Waterfall, and we explored the gold-gilded Doi Suthep temple.
For our 2015 eCommerce retreat, we stayed in villas right on the beach in the beautiful Krabi, Thailand. Our speakers spoke about topics that ranged from optimizing your Google PLA’s to gain more traffic, to getting started with Amazon FBA when you’re ready to start other eCommerce endeavors.
Then, for our annual retreat in 2016, we headed across the Pacific to beautiful Kona, Hawaii! From learning and networking to diving and volcano tours, our members had four days of craziness and fun.
After plenty of hard research, we’ve decided to head south to Playa del Carmen for our 4th annual Drop Ship Lifestyle retreat! Right now, the whole team is working hard arranging all the details and parties.

10 Ways You’ll Have the Time of Your Life at Our eCommerce Retreat
1. Reconnecting with Old Friends While Making New Ones
At the Drop Ship Lifestyle retreat, you’ll spend four action packed days reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. Over 100 digital nomads, entrepreneurs, and drop shippers from all over the world will be coming down to Mexico for our eCommerce retreat in October.
2. Actionable Insights and Advice
After four days of networking and learning from marketing experts, other successful students, coaches, and members of our team, you’ll leave this retreat pumped and ready to take your store to the next level.
3. Relax and Unwind Time
All of us work so hard, especially our Drop Ship Lifestyle members, and many use the annual member’s retreat as a time to relax and re-energize. At last year’s Drop Ship Lifestyle retreat in Kona, Hawaii, our members made time to find their inner zen and practice yoga poses.
4. …Or Party Time!
On the flip side, we also love (and know how) to party it up! This year, we’ll be staying at an all-inclusive resort that has a nightclub as well as a theater. Not to brag, but let’s just say our opening and closing parties are the two events you don’t want to miss!
5. New Foods and Exotic Dishes
Tasting new dishes from the local cuisine is usually one of the most exciting parts of travel. Our member’s retreats are no different. If you couldn’t tell from the photo above, we have some adventurous foodies in our community of drop shippers.
6. Letting Your Inner-Kid Free
Our members look forward to getting to play like a kid again during our annual member’s retreat. Each afternoon we book exciting adventures such as rock climbing, caving, snorkeling, and island hopping. We don’t want to ruin any surprises for our 4th annual retreat, but we can say, your inner-kid is going to have a blast in Playa del Carmen.
7. Feel Like the King (or Queen!!) You Are
Each of our previous member’s retreats has been hosted in fancy, luxury resorts. You know, the kind that make you feel like you’re the King (or Queen!) of the world. This year is no different, our retreat is being hosted at the beautiful 24-hour, all-inclusive Barcelo Occidental. If you’re not already pumped about the retreat, just take a quick scroll through these photos. But just judging from the above sunset sneak peek Anton sent us we think you’ll be pretty pleased with the location…
8. Adventures with Exotic Wildlife
At our first Drop Ship Lifestyle retreat in in Chiang Mai, our members had the time of their lives playing with tigers and bathing elephants. This year, we are staying in Xcaret eco-archaeological park, so you won’t have to go far to find beautiful wildlife. At the resort, there are Red Macaws, Saraguato Monkeys, a dolphinarium, and plenty of other local critters that roam the park.
We don’t mean to sound materialistic, but we think you’ll enjoy going through the DSL swag bags. By now, we’re kind of known for gifting the most incredible swag at our eCommerce retreats! Anything to make our members feel like the VIPs they are.
10. Impromptu Jam Sessions
Finally, sing your heart out at the Drop Ship Lifestyle retreat by joining in on impromptu jam sessions with friends, new and old. Proof that these retreats build lasting friendships on a level deeper than just eCommerce or showing off your numbers.
We could go on and on about all the great ways and reasons you’ll have the time of your life at our eCommerce retreat, but there’s only one way to see for yourself: come join us!
