Y’all. Five years ago, I felt really alone and like no one would ever understand the creative dreams I had. And I had a LOT of dreams. I felt lost and frustrated and totally overwhelmed by thoughts that went something like this: “HOW am I going to make this happen? I have no idea what I’m doing! I want this so badly, but I am not equipped, prepared, good enough, smart enough, etc., etc.” Does that sound familiar? Yes. I know how you feel! I still think those things on occasion and then… I remember the enormous community of support that I have now and those thoughts go away. There are thousands of people who I now know share many of my same struggles as a creative entrepreneur.
Over 700 people have gone through the Making Things Happen intensive since then and have changed their lives for the better. But, it’s not because of MTH that they changed. It’s because they are people just like me who wanted to live a better life. People who know they were meant for more. People who want to inspire and give and make a life that means something. These are people who have a deep burning passion to make what matters happen. Together, we have taken bold steps over these five years. My life has completely changed from the inside out and I am so so so grateful for all of that change. I wake up every day to do a job that I love that keeps growing and let’s me use all of my gifts. I didn’t go to school for publishing or journalism or business. I had a giant dream and I worked really hard to make it happen.
Our goal with the Making Things Happen 2013 Conference is to continue to give creative entrepreneurs the tools they need to take big leaps in life and business… and in a new profound way with this two day format. The 2013 Making Things Happen Conference is the first of it’s kind – combining the Making Things Happen workshop on Day 1 with business and branding essentials from Making Brands Happen on Day 2. Seats are very limited. This two-day conference is designed to fire you up and get you on a powerful path to making big things happen in life and in business. This is the fourth year of this nationally-acclaimed SOLD OUT workshop and we are so thrilled to combine it with powerful knowledge from Making Brands Happen! Together, we’ll dig deep, establish priorities, set goals and discover how to make what matters happen. After uncovering a decisive and clear vision for what you want to make happen on Day 1, we’ll dive into the core principles of powerful personal branding on Day 2 to really help you make what matters MOST happen. Oh, but there’s more…
One of the biggest factors for success in Making Things Happen is community. It’s being surrounded by like-minded people who push you higher, not just during a workshop, but for life. I cannot even begin to tell you how the MTH community has helped me focus on what matters and take big leaps. I truly believe these words: ‘You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.’ – Jim Rohn. In the spirit of those words, I’m thrilled to introduce a very exciting component of the MTH2013 Conference. This is something God put on our hearts this year and totally wowed us with!
We’re honored to have these five women joining us to share their stories and help you make big things happen on March 13th and 14th. Each of these women has remarkable gifts and is in a very unique place in their career and life path. And these are just a small few of the Making Things Happen alum who are doing big things in life! SO many of the MTH alum are inspiring leaders and doing things that light our hearts on fire. We have some big plans ahead to involve many more people in inspiring creative entreprenuers to make big things happen. More to come. But, for now… for our first power-packed conference… we are ELATED that these women are joining us for this experience and can’t wait for you to learn from them, too!
There are only a few days left to register at the early-bird rate (save $1000!) and you only have till Monday at midnight to apply for the scholarship. So, get on it! Seats are flying like hotcakes (and I’m sure will fly faster with this announcement) and we have a limited capacity for this to keep it really focused for each attendee.
Most attendees are flying in from out of town (airport code is RDU and Southwest flies here!) and staying at the Carolina Inn or a hotel close by. One you register, we have a private Facebook group set up where you can arrange to share a room with someone. If you have questions about travel arrangements or payment plans, Marissa will get you all set up.
WE CANNOT WAIT to see everyone very soon! Join us!
