Easy To Use Retreat Software

Retreat planners choose YouLi for simplicity, flexibility, and the wholistic approach to admin tasks. Collecting payments and waivers, sharing dietary preferences and adding optional activities is easy.


Nick Vannello is a US based business and life coach with a wide community around his branded GoNaked Magazine and regular community events. In January 2020 Nick has decided to offer immersive travel events.  

GoNaked travel events are transformational multi-day private retreats that provide safe and fun environment for men to self-explore and create unique bonds within the community. “My passion is teaching, but my PURPOSE is to give others permission to be who they dare to be.” – Nick.

"When I came to find YouLi I thought: "Oh my God, here is my perfect ALL-IN-ONE solution for building SALES PAGES, and collecting DOCUMENTS and all of the stuff that I hate doing. It's all here!" - Nick Vannello

As a solo entrepreneur, Nick need a simple effective solution to process all the administrative work related to retreat planning and look beautiful online, while connecting with clients and growing his business.

The Challenge

  • ROOM INVENTORY - It has to be easy to manage room availability without using spreadsheets and manual count
  • PAYMENTS - It must be easy to collect split payments and assign payment plans and discounts.
  • DOCUMENT EXCHANGE - guests must submit a pack of trip documents including waiver forms, proof of insurance, COVID test, passport info and special requests before the departure
  • PRESENTATION - itineraries must look beautiful and be easily copied as needed
  • BROCHURES - guests can choose unique room they want to stay (with images of the views)

The Solution

Nick has learned about YouLi group travel platform during the webinar for ambitious retreat planers hosted by YouLi Community, and quickly saw the opportunity for his group destination events. YouLi empowers group trip planners like Nick Vannello by providing a simple to use tool box necessary to run and scale successful retreats.

YouLi platform is the umbrella of the building blocks to create itineraries for customers and workflows for the team who plans, delivers and accounts for group trips experiences. Templates and reminders are meant to save time while smart snippets and links keep everybody organized.

YouLi powers group retreats
"YouLi is the only app I can recommend! Not only is the platform solid, they are constantly improving upon their products based upon customer suggestions. The customer service is outstanding and the training options are out of this world." - Nick Vannello

In 202 we recorded a webinar with Nick sharing behind the scenes on his retreats. GoNakedEvents grew brand awareness through the travel lockdowns and now Nick sells out his retreats within minutes of the announcement.
