Who is MTH for?

MTH is not for the faint of heart or for people who want a quick fix, but for people from all walks of life who really want to change, grow, and harness their full potential. Are you struggling trying to control family responsibilities and expectations? Are you a working professional striving for balance, purpose, or running with a big idea? Or are you a small business owner burning the candle at both ends? Whether you're a mom, a seasoned professional, or a creative with a big idea, MTH is right for you if you're ready to stop letting fear dictate your life and start living and working with purpose.

How is MTH Different from Other Conferences?

Even those who have gone through the MTH experience have a hard time articulating it, but that’s okay - we encourage alums to let their actions explain the powerful changes they’ve experienced! Today’s Making Things Happen Conference is designed to fire people up to make bold decisions towards their best lives and empower them to step into their fears instead of away from them. Attendees are given the time and space to walk through vital and challenging questions — the ones that are easy to ignore on a day-to-day basis. We dig in together to discover our cores, and then learn how to act on those cores by ridding ourselves of distractions and fears to step boldly onto a new path. We believe life is too short to play small.

There are many other great conferences out there that provide the nuts and bolts of business planning and execution. MTH was created to give you the foundation and purpose to make what matters happen, be it in family, career, or business. Doing this work makes whatever you want to make happen more fruitful, more successful, and more purposeful.

What Can I Expect?

Two impactful days with our inspiring and incredibly open collection of Encouragers. Conference sessions last from approximately 10am to 6pm on days one and two. Breakfast (starting at 9am), lunch, and snacks are served both days. There are also several optional and informal get-togethers throughout the Conference: a meet-up on Sunday evening and “fireside chats” to decompress on the nights of days one and two. Many attendees choose to get dinner together on one or both nights of the Conference, as well. We recommend you do not plan any travel on either Monday or Tuesday to get the most out of the experience.

What Is The Encouragement Crew?

Kristin WinchesterOur Chief Encourager and conference organizer, Kristin Winchester will be in touch with you from the moment you purchase your ticket until the end of the conference (and far into the future -- we love keeping in touch!). She's the woman behind all of our conference logistics, making sure that you're well-prepared and informed, that all dietary needs are met, and that the conference runs smoothly.

Kristin is likely the first person to give you a giant hug once you arrive in Chapel Hill, and has put together a great group of MTH alum who serve as volunteers during the conference, lovingly dubbed the "Encouragement Crew." They'll be on hand during the conference to welcome you, direct you to the conference room, and offer any last-minute hugs to calm your nerves.

What MTH Alumni Have to Say

I went to MTH wanting to grow my business. MTH did change my business because it changed my entire perspective on life.  Not only did my business grow and change, but my heart was changed. I don't know that I would have been ready for our adoption process had I not walked through my fear with the amazing women and speakers at MTH. Since MTH, I have not only expanded my business but have added on another  and have been enjoying motherhood to its fullest. I will forever be grateful for my experience at MTH. I hope to come back as an alum one day soon and enjoy it all over again.

MTH is not for the faint of heart, but if you are ready to really dig deep, it is a powerful and transformative experience that will really help you uncover your core, identify what matters most, and help you outline how to make that happen. It changed my life. It sounds dramatized, but I kid you not, when I left that sweet Carolina Inn, I felt like I didn't even remember the woman I was when I arrived just two days prior.

The two days spent at the Making Things Happen Intensive have made an impact on my life by giving me the gift of knowing that I am worth so much more than I allowed myself to believe prior to these two days. I returned home with a stronger sense of purpose, passion and the freedom to give myself grace. These two days also gave me community with other women who are strong, beautiful and crave the ability to live life to the fullest; we have goals and dreams bigger than we are, backed with action plans to make it happen.

- Amanda Daly

The two days at Making Things Happen opened my eyes, my mind and my heart more than I thought possible. It allowed me to step out of my daily routine, take my phone out of the clutches of my hand and to really make me realize that I am the only one standing in my way. I learned I'm the only one that can make things happen for my own life. We are made for MORE and for BIG THINGS and I am so thankful for the opportunity to JUST BE for two glorious days in Chapel Hill, where I met wonderful people I'm going to keep in touch with, encourage and be encouraged by, for speakers that touched my heart in ways unimaginable, and for a renewed view on my life!

I loved how MTH was about digging deep and figuring out who you are and what you believe your life purpose is. It was about carrying that purpose into our businesses and personal lives, rather than just goal-setting for business. MTH is not a business conference, and you won't necessarily come away with a business plan. However, you will discover what is important to you, which is crucial for building a business or cultivating your personal life.
