We just got back from Nashville today. Huge thanks to Jeremy Cowart and the MTH2010 Nashvegas crew for knocking our socks off! What a great week this has been. We started in Hotlanta at Get Married Studios with the beautiful, warm and brilliant Stacie Francombe.  Atlanta was pretty significant for me.  It was the first time we had done the intensive in a couple weeks and, as I spoke, I could see clearly how I had been affected by the work we’re doing.  We shared the day with 20 phenomenal friends that I can’t wait to get to know more. It was a powerful afternoon capped off with a fabulous celebration that night

I’m a little embarrassed at my apparent addiction to the Smilebooth.  After a dozen encounters with said Smilebooth, I’ve come to realize playing in that thing makes me laugh more than anything. 

After a long day of deep reflection, it was great to just let loose and have some silly funWhitney and I really want one for the office just so we can spend 10 minutes every day laughing our faces off.

Whitney (from OLOL… aka raddest guy in ATL), Jesse (raddest gal in ATL) and Ashley (she’s rad too. She’s been so helpful with this little party we are throwing in Vegas.) sure know how to make me have a good time!   Thank you Atlanta and Nashville for making this week so life-changing for Jeff and I.

OK ok, so we attempted to record this video a couple weeks ago in Chicago and got so busy we never posted it.  Goodness!  You’d think we were traveling the country or something??  So, break out the DeLorean and take a little trip back to the future with us… (and you’ve been warned: this is what happens when you travel to 6 cities in 10 days and do 80 hours of deep soul-searching work)

There are just a small handful of cities on the books left for the Making Things Happen Intensive Tour, so we want your input on where we should go next.  Leave a comment here with the city you want us to visit. Keep in mind that we really will pick the next stops based on your comments.   If there are votes from at least ten people in one city, we’re there!

PS Klienfeld was AMAZING and Katharine’s dress is to die for! Pics from our NY adventure coming soon.

PSS I have a very exciting auction I’m announcing tomorrow.  Get your auction paddles ready, y’all!

PSSS I’m headed back to Hotlanta in 10 days to speak at this little shindig.  You should come.

PSSSS I’ll have a little time in ATL for individual mentoring sessions.  Want one?  Email me.

PSSSSS We’re having a Valentine’s Day party tomorrow and you’re invited.

    Hahaha, this is awesome! So I’ve had my heart set on going to the DC Intensive, but since you’re asking for more places to go….my vote is for Florida! I would say Orlando, since it’s more central, but of course my choice would specifically be Tampa! 🙂 We would love to have you guys come here!!!!!!!!!!!
