Michael and I are heading out to the Dominican Republic tomorrow for our second What If conference. We first went to What If in Portland Oregon, and honestly, it was life changing for us. As a creative and a business owner, I felt that Michael and I reached the goals we originally set out for ourselves. Once those goals were reached, we were just coasting along. Maybe some people like to coast, we do not. Where is the fun and the challenge in that? Are we growing as we are coasting? Maybe, but not in the way we want to grow. Michael and I are all about finding new ways to make our current business better, which includes making us better. We love learning new ways to grow, together as a team and M2 as a whole.
Another thing this conference has helped us with, it pushed us to take bigger risks. With bigger risk comes a bigger reward. Something Michael and I have been wanting to do is start a non-profit. Charity work and helping others is something most people want to do. We want to be great role models for our kids, we want them to understand and look at the bigger picture. We want to inspire them and we want them to grow into amazing little ladies that are kind, helpful and hardworking, who also dream big. The only way to do that is to lead by example.
So this workshop and the connections we’ve made have helped not only our business and our way of thinking, but it greatly helped our overall well being. It’ made us realize that we are capable of so much more.
We are so grateful for Steve and Jen and their dreams for What If. We are also grateful for the amazingly talented new friends we’ve made.
We cannot wait to reunite with some of them in DR and we are looking forward to making new friends and setting new goals!
For those of you thinking if this conference is good for you? Look into it. It’s an amazing conference, like no other we’ve ever been to. It will change your life.
