A year ago this week, I made a big announcement from Breckenridge, Colorado. I never dreamed that some of the names I would read would be my future best friends. Or that I’d be seeing them again in just ten days to celebrate a pivotal, powerful, life-changing year. 2010 has been the best year of my life for more reasons than I can count.
A risky blog post led to a 20 city tour led to over 400 new friendships that have brought me to today: humbled, grateful, in awe of how God can change a life in such a short time. We traveled to 20 cities this year to challenge people to conquer fear and harness their true potential. Never in a million years would I have guessed the result. I can’t take credit for what the MTH Alumni have accomplished since this first began 12 months ago. They genuinely lived what I said: Feel the fear and do it anyway. The feedback and the community support has blown me away.
One of the biggest factors in all of this success has been the community and fierce accountability from the MTH alum. The support I see every single day from past attendees is just phenomenal. There aren’t words big enough to describe what these people have done for each other to help one another conquer fear and make really big things happen in their lives and in business.
There have been countless late night phone calls, group Skype chats to offer encouragement, weekly meet-ups, a thousand encouraging texts, uplifting emails (I know all of this because I’ve been a recipient myself!), facebook groups that are active by the hour, Twitter messages to encourage and support, many tears, frustrations, hurdles, triumphs, and remarkable advances.
Want a peek inside the tour? I made a new montage/video thing really fast. I’ve only made one other montage/video thing in my life. You have full permission to berate my montage/video thing skills. I’m awesome at jumping moguls on skis and making muffins, so it all evens out. Watch carefully for some new faces towards the end. I know it moves fast, so get that espresso brewing!
It is with so much excitement and gratitude that I announce the first part of Making Things Happen 2011! We will be visiting five major airport hubs this January for easy travel: Tampa, Charlotte, Atlanta, Las Vegas (WPPI) and New York City! We are looking for one more city to add to the tour, so please leave a comment and let us know where you’d like us to come. Spread the word, because we need at least 10 people per city to make it happen.
The 2010 Tour completely SOLD OUT, so this one is sure to as well. I wish I could visit more cities, but with my packed schedule – and a commitment to not be on an airplane so much in the new year – I can’t pack any more in. So, jump on these places! We purposely chose places that are easy to travel to so you can make it happen.
This workshop is not for the faint of heart, but for creatives who really want to change, grow, and harness their full potential in the new year. Are you ready to Make Things Happen? Pull the trigger now, while there are seats.
Need help to make it happen? Leave a comment here telling me what you want to make happen in 2011 (and which city you would like to attend). Why do you want this? What is your passion? One scholarship seat will be announced January 1st! I’m so excited about the upcoming year and can’t wait to kick it off with you! Life is too short to play small. PLEASE NOTE: The only cities offered for 2011 so far are Tampa, Charlotte, Atlanta, Las Vegas and New York. We are open to suggestion on one more city to visit.
