Meet the Spring 2019 MTH Encouragers!

Every year, in Chapel Hill, NC, women just like you from all over the world and in all seasons of life, come together for the Making Things Happen Conference to do just that: make what matters happen. We like to describe MTH as doing PowerSheets in person. MTH gives you a chance to step away from the busyness and distractions of everyday life to uncover your purpose and making an action plan you can't wait to get started on! 

Making Things Happen is more than just another conference, it's an opportunity to change your life. You'll get to the heart of what matters, and discover a community of women who want to live life with purpose and passion.

At MTH you’ll dig deep but, you won’t do it alone! Our founder, Lara Casey, is there to walk you through every step of the process! Seven incredible women come alongside Lara and serve as our team of Encouragement Speakers. At Making Things Happen, our speakers don't talk "at" you, they do the work alongside you! Our Encouragers want to help you uncover what matters most. They’ll share their personal stories and encourage you in break-out sessions to bravely dig deeper together.

We’re excited to introduce our Spring 2019 Encouragement Speakers and hear more of why they’re excited about Making Things Happen and what advice they have for our future attendees!

What She’s Most Excited for: “Meeting YOU! Hearing your stories and watching transformations happen and light bulbs go off is a gift I don’t take for granted. I can’t wait to meet you!”

Her Encouragement for Attendees: “If you are able, stay at the Carolina Inn with other attendees and be sure to go to the fireside chats each night. That’s where you’ll build a community that will last a lifetime. You only get those two days together—make them count! And trust that everyone else is just as nervous as you are. Those nerves will fly out the window when we get started though!

Her Encouragement for Attendees: “Come with no agenda other than to embrace the time spent together with honesty and an open heart and mind. It’s going to be so good!”

What She’s Most Excited for: “I can't wait to speak encouragement and life into each attendee at MTH this spring! I enjoy this experience year after year and I feel like everyone who is in the room is there at that exact moment for a reason."

Her Encouragement for Attendees: “I was afraid too. I was worried about making friends, meeting people in my same industry, crying too much, my outfit -- the list goes on. I never thought about any of these fears after walking in the doors. Come as you are. This is going to change your life in the best way."

What She’s Most Excited for: “I’m most looking forward to two days of no interruptions. No phone, no distractions, just focusing on my heart and my future. Every single time I go to MTH, it is the greatest gift to step away from life and gain perspective on my health, my relationships, my faith, and my family.”

Her Encouragement for Attendees: “You’ll get out of it what you put into it. The more vulnerable you are, the better… there is no judgment in that room! Also, wear waterproof mascara and don’t wear jeans. You’ll be more comfy, I promise!”

We are thrilled that each of our Encouragement Speakers is taking the time to join us this fall, and we can’t wait for you to learn from them!

What She’s Most Excited for: “The anticipation of new friendships being born and seeing old friends. Watching the transformation that happens in women (and myself) at MTH.”

Her Encouragement for Attendees:I’m a type “A" personality, I wanted details and a schedule. I wanted to know everything that was going to happen and when. You know, so let it go. Trust the process of this conference, it is life changing, you just have to let go and experience an event unlike any other you have ever attended."

What She’s Most Excited for: "I am most looking forward to the opportunity to set aside time to really think deeply through where I am going in life. I am by nature more of a do-er than a thinker/feeler and I love that the MTH team has created a space where you can ask yourself the tough questions and explore the answers in your heart in a safe and uplifting environment! It is equal parts a personal challenge and a great release at the same time!"

Her Encouragement for Attendees:Resist the urge to worry about whether you will fit in or what people will think of you. Unlike other conferences, MTH is not about networking or putting your best foot forward and making a good impression. MTH is about your own personal growth journey - you are not there to impress other people - You are there for yourself. Also, be prepared to cry publicly and unapologetically."
