Our location ...

Luxury Beach-Front Home

Mandurah, WA

This large, luxurious house is absolute beachfront at Mandurah. Close to Dolphin Quay Marina, you can soak up the sunshine, pop to the shops, or simply stroll along the beach.

Set over two storeys, with multiple living spaces, this private home is the perfect setting to be able to disconnect from your everyday life, and invest the time and energy you need to really move the needle on your business.


Experience a true opportunity to focus solely on yourself and your business, as you take your ideas and make them a reality!

Before you even set foot inside the retreat, you will get a 1:1 planning session with Marianne and Sarah. This will allow you to get crystal clear on what you want to achieve in the 4 days onsite.

The focus is on taking supported action in your business, so you can make real progress on your business wishlist - free from the distractions of daily life, clients, and those other deadlines that always seem to take priority!

Say YES to 4 days of focussed, supported, and connected work, including:

Quiet reflection time without the distractions of the everyday

Mini pamper session to truly ground yourself in the moment

Fun activities to help you relax

1:1 strategic support from Sarah and Marianne on demand

Delicious home cooked meals

Daily meditation to focus your mind each day

A house 'mother' to take care of your needs

Multiple work spaces so you can find what feels right for you

Generous catering every day - I promise you won't go hungry!

All dietary needs catered for

Communing and connecting with other ladies in business

PLUS ... so much more!

You are welcome to bring whatever you need to get the work done - that could be your desktop computer (there's space, but you will need to know how to set it up!), laptop, folders, files, or all those handwritten notes you have scribbled out.

Whatever you have that you know holds the key to making your ideas a reality.

Limited to 6 attendees only! Be quick to secure your spot!

HECK YES - Let's do this!


We are all going to be very clear on exactly what you need to get done, with our mission being to facilitate this for you.

This business staycation can only be considered a success if you leave having created and achieved those tasks and actions that we laid out as your action plan beforehand.

This is mission critical

We will take away all of the things that are holding you back from doing this in your normal working environment, including:

    📌  Everyday life - family, friends and demands
   📌  Being the chef - all meals are taken care of
   📌  Noise - quiet, calm space in the country
   📌  Privacy - spread out and enjoy
   📌  Business demands - put on that auto-reply!

Meet your hosts

This 4 day Biz Staycation has been designed to give you a flexible space, with direct access to two experts in strategy and business, so you can get the support you need to really move the needle on your business in a practical way.

To do that, you will be supported by:

Sarah Thomson


With over 25 years of experience in marketing and communications, with the last 11 spent running her own business (Online Social Butterfly), Sarah is a true digital expert!

She has a swag of qualification to match her experience, but her driving force is helping women in business to get confident when it comes to digital marketing.

Having working at home (with her hubby), she also has more than a few tricks up her sleeve when it comes to motivation, time management and setting (and holding!) boundaries. 

Sarah's quick wit, eye for ideas and innovation, and willingness to dive deep into your business to help you truly understand what you need to achieve your goals make her a delight and a powerhouse to work with at this retreat.

Marianne Tansley

Marianne 2022-09_1

Marianne brings over 20 years of corporate administration experience as the 'make it happen' person. Her superpower is to take a big picture idea and break it down into manageable, actionable steps, that fits with your own skills and confidence.

With a passion for helping women to succeed, Marianne has a knack for finding features and elements inside tools you are familiar with that will help you streamline and automate your business. Her skill in ensuring that the finished product services you - your values, working style, skills and needs - is what sets her apart from other 'cookie cutter' service providers.

Marianne's exhaustive experience in creating connections between systems, combined with her dry wit and passion for puzzles and finding solutions, make her a valuable resource to tap into across this 4 day intensive retreat.

I'm ready to make some magic in my business!

Before you join us in person, you get to spend time with both Marianne and Sarah, so you can get crystal clear on what you want to achieve over the 4 days inside the retreat.

Focussing on specific goals and actions, we will work together to help you really make progress, free from the distractions of daily life, clients and those other 'to-do' items that always seem to come first!

Arrive knowing exactly what needs to happen in the next 4 days.

We will ensure you have a quiet space, and plenty of time, to focus on your goals.

With only 4 spots, you will have plenty of time to work 1:1 with Sarah or Marianne. This intense focus is designed to help you leap ahead in your business.


Limited to 6 attendees only! Be quick to secure your spot!

    “Sarah from Social Butterfly is not only an expert in her field, she also has a huge heart. I first joined one of her amazing business retreats in which I got to know her in a lovely setting south of Perth. Sarah's relaxing and fun loving nature created an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation in which I was able to plan my 2022. Soon after the retreat I bought one of her courses and a 1-1 session to learn more about FB adds, a subject that's always felt daunting and scary. With her help and support I'm now able to put my mind to understanding how to move forward with my business through using FB adds, with confidence.”

    “As someone who’s work heavily relies on using and integrating programs so they work seamlessly for my business and for my clients, I don’t know where I’d be without Marianne and Thrive Admin! If I need to understand how to do anything, Marianne is able to explain it.
    If I need to discern which program is best to use in a given situation, Marianne is able to work it through with me. If I am experiencing a problem I don’t know how to solve with any Microsoft program, Marianne is able to successfully troubleshoot it with me. She truly is a magician!”


  • Thrive Admin Services

    “I can't put into words how much I enjoyed the retreat. I met an amazing group of women. I felt welcomed and valued. As someone who isn't a natural at networking and meeting new people, this certainly was brilliant. We were provided with a wide range of activities and down time as well. If you're thinking about heading out on a retreat - JUST DO IT”


  • Thrive Admin Services

    “I came to get away from my business, to relax, to be challenged and to get connected with like-minded business ladies, and I got all that and more. I had the best time – learning, laughing, reflecting, connecting and of course, eating! I’ve never had so much to eat in such a short time, and the desserts were to die for! Thank you sooo much to both of you for hosting this retreat and making such a big impact on so many people’s lives. You are literally life-changers, ladies”

  • Thrive Admin Services

    “Abundant space, food, learning and a real generosity of spirit from not only the facilitators but also the participants. I am going back home to work refreshed, energised and with new biz besties. I would highly recommend”

  • Thrive Admin Services

    “An awesome opportunity to spend time with like minded women sharing, learning and caring about our varied businesses. The content of the whole retreat was informative, varied and inspiring. It was a “safe” environment with no judgement and positive encouragement from everyone. A huge thank-you for allowing me to be part of this wonderful experience”
