Perhaps its because I have a two-year old (goodness gracious, when did THAT happen) or perhaps its because I always wanted to write and illustrate children’s books growing up (still do!) but this is one of my favorite sayings ever. We have everything we need to make things happen. Making things happen is all about action. It’s about putting one foot in front of the other (even when its scary) and DOING. Lara and I talk a lot about action in our Making Brands Happen Webinars. “Action is the forward process of DOING SOMETHING.” Dr. Seuss knew what he was talking about here.
I remember five (FIVE!) years ago when I wholeheartedly (terrified) made my plans to go to the first Making Things Happen Intensive in Watercolor, Florida. Little did I know…
Haha, I can’t even begin to write what happened next. And none of it happened because Lara is amazing (even though she is!) She didn’t tell me any secret or give me any magical powers. But I did the hard work by getting myself to that room. While I was in that room I let my guard down and (for the first time) really began to make plans and determine ACTIONS that would allow me to live the life I wanted.
A handful of questions we often get from people who are interested in coming to MTH (and joining our amazing community of over 700+ fired up friends):
- Do I need to own a business or have a business dream to come to MTH? I just want to make life happen. Oh friend. Amen! I own a business but half the time at MTH I end up making plans to make MY LIFE happen. If you are someone who wants to live a life on fire, who wants to make what matters happen… MTH is perfect for you.
- Is MTH a faith-based intensive? We (Gina, Lara and myself) find our stories deeply rooted in our faith and we share them honestly, but MTH is not a faith-based workshop. We love welcoming attendees from all walks of life, all religious backgrounds and in all stages of making what matters happen <— whatever it is that truly matters to them! MTH is all about releasing fear and making WHAT MATTERS happen.
- I’m scared. I have Doubt A, Doubt B and Doubt C about coming. I’m emailing you to tell you my doubts in the hopes that you’ll tell me they’re ok and that I should come anyways. Oh I get these emails daily! I know I can speak for Lara and Gina that they do too. And I love these emails. Seriously, friends, email me your doubts. I’ll tell you if I think MTH will be beneficial for you. Be prepared for me to blow your doubts out of the water, though. Emily(at)emilyley(dot)com.

David gently shook me awake, and I saw that he was wide-eyed like a little kid. “Merry Christmas!” he said. “C’mon, I made waffles and the coffee’s almost ready, let’s eat so we can open presents!”
