10 Reasons You Should Attend The Escape Adulthood Summit

Last year’s Escape Adulthood Summit was really something special. Over 40 like-minded individuals from 8 different states came together in Madison for a life-changing weekend of fun, inspiration, and magic. It was, in a word, awesome.

This year, our goal is to make it awesomer.

There are 70 Golden Tickets available, but 50 are already gone, many claimed by people who’ve attended a previous Summit. Here are 10 reasons why you should consider joining their ranks:

1) The community. It can be terribly lonely when you feel like you’re the only one who sees the value in silliness, the importance of laughter, and the power of a chocolate chip cookie. The Escape Adulthood Summit is designed to connect you with other like-minded souls to give you the assurance that you are not alone. In fact, it’s quite possible that your biggest takeaway might come from the person you sit next to.

2) The location. We have upgraded to the the beautifully stunning Olbrich Botanical Gardens. Surrounded by 16 acres of lush, award-winning, outdoor display gardens, you can plan on some well-deserved relaxation and rejuvenation.

3) The butterflies. We’ll be there for the opening weekend of Olbrich’s famous Blooming Butterflies Event, which only runs four weeks each year. Live butterflies emerge from chrysalises daily in the Bolz Conservatory and you’ll experience the magnificence of more than a dozen species of free-flying butterflies.

4) The content. You will be treated to world-class content, presented by Kim and myself as well as a secret special guest. There’s a pretty good chance you’ll laugh and maybe even cry, and most importantly, walk away with the motivation and the tools to create a life that’s less stressful and more fun.

5) The special guest. Once again, we have invited a special guest to share some amazing wisdom on fighting Adultitis. We can’t tell you who she is, but we can guarantee that you will love her.

6) The secret schedule. We keep a lot of the schedule secret, on purpose. A big reason is to give you the gift of a few days off from real life, free from the need to worry about time and other distractions. This weekend is YOUR chance to truly escape. We sweat the details so you don’t have to.

7) The food. One of our great joys is coming up with a delightful menu of childhood classics with a grown-up twist. (And sometimes we put childlike spins on grown-up favorites.) This is an opportunity to treat your inner child, the one who hated Brussels sprouts and begged to eat desert first.

8) The magic. The Escape Adulthood Summit embodies the kind of magic that you might find in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. It is our intent to pack as much surprise, delight, anticipation and wonder into every experience. Our goal is to make your inner child jump for joy again and again.

9) The fun. Between jobs, families, and myriad responsibilities, we rarely have a chance to have fun for its own sake. The Escape Adulthood Summit is your chance to let loose, be silly, and have some good old fashioned fun, just because, just like when you were a kid.

10) The cheese curds. It is Wisconsin, after all.

P.S. We do not make ANY money off the tickets for this event. We invest every dime of your ticket price into making this the best experience we can. Believe it or not, we actually have a line item in our budget for “Magic.” It’s there to accommodate the crazy wild hairs we come up with to make this event extra special. You don’t want to miss this.
