The Making Things Happen Conference is a two-day event designed to help you dig deep to uncover your goals, and give you the tools to take meaningful action on them. We spend Day One working together to peel back layers of fear, expectation, and perfection in order to get to our core — the things that matter most to us and that we want to make happen. On Day Two, we dive into practical action steps to make those things happen, and discuss how you can live out your core in life and business.
We’d love to welcome you to the MTH Conference. Email Kristin@SouthernWeddings.com if you’re interested in a payment plan!
Making Things Happen is hosted by the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, NC. Every year, we welcome attendees from around the country, and the Carolina Inn is conveniently located close to a major airport, RDU. The closest hotels are the Carolina Inn, the Franklin Hotel, the Chapel Hill Aloft, and the Chapel Hill Marriott. There is a group room block at the Carolina Inn, so be sure to mention the conference when you call to book. Lodging is not included in your ticket price. We encourage attendees to room together, and many say this is a highlight of their experience! Once your ticket is booked, you’ll be invited to our private Facebook page, where you can connect with other attendees and make arrangements together.
Breakfast, lunch, and healthy snacks are provided for both days. Our attendees and Encouragement Crew gather for dinner in self-arranged small groups, so we would encourage you not to make any evening plans so you can join in on the fun!
We recommend arriving Sunday afternoon or evening, and departing Wednesday morning. The MTH team arranges additional programming, like a Sunday evening Ice Cream Meet-Up and Fireside Chats on Monday and Tuesday evenings. Take these into consideration if you’d like to participate in them! Chapel Hill is beautiful in the spring and fall, so we do have many attendees who come a day or two early to explore the area. You can download our list of Things to Do in Chapel Hill, Places to Eat in Chapel Hill, and Places to Visit in Raleigh and Durham.
Conference sessions last from approximately 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. on days one and two, with breakfast starting at 9 A.M. We recommend you do not plan any travel on either Monday or Tuesday in order to get the most out of the experience, including any time the conference may run over, dinner with other attendees, and optional Fireside Chats (beginning at 9 P.M.) to decompress on both nights.
We want you to be as comfortable as possible during MTH! No one is here to impress others–we want to get to know the real you. Leave the heels at home, and bring clothes that you love and feel confident in, but that allow you to sit cross-legged, shoes that you can kick off easily, and shirts that you can give hugs in. Bring your favorite pen or pencil, any snacks you want to have with you (though we’ll have some, too!), and a light sweater in case our conference room gets chilly. Download our packing list here. Do leave your laptop and work at home–consider this time a gift to yourself!
We do accommodate dietary restrictions and want to make sure you feel comfortable and healthy. You’ll have the opportunity to submit your dietary needs and lunch preferences before the conference.
MTH can be a life-changing experience, so we like to keep the number of attendees to under 75 per conference. We think the smaller group size encourages honest conversation and more encouragement. Attendees also participate in breakout groups that usually have 15 people or less in them. This intimate group setting allows us to dig even deeper into uncovering your passions and creating meaningful action plans.
Because the speakers tell their personal stories, including the challenges they’ve faced, faith gets talked about extensively at MTH. However, these are their personal stories, and faith is not a requirement to be a part of MTH. We welcome people of all faiths and backgrounds!
We’ve got you covered! Send them this PDF on how MTH will take your business to the next level.
MTH is personal. It’s about harnessing your passion, conquering fear, and making an active plan for the future. This translates directly into both life and business. So, yes, MTH is absolutely for you!
