Becoming 2016 | August 5th-6th

Mark your Calendar for Becoming 2016.

Hosted once again in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC on Friday and Saturday, August 5th-6th, 2016.

We are so excited to invite you to join us for the fifth annual Becoming Conference.

Becoming 2016 is a weekend designed to encourage and inspire women to live intentionally by becoming more creative, purposeful, and frugal. As women, many of us desire to be more intentional with our time and financial resources; more intentional with our family and homes, but aren’t sure how to make that happen.

As we gather from all walks of life, we will tackle some of those day to day issues that typically seem mundane and give you a sense of magic. Our desire is that you will leave, not only refreshed, but encouraged, empowered, and motivated with the practical and tangible ideas you have received.

From personal finance, meal planning, hospitality, fashion, home decor, trash to treasure, and more, Becoming 2015 will revolutionize the way we think, not just about our finances, but our homes.

If it comes to creating, repurposing or being intentional with our money, time and energy, we want to cover it.

As we are bring together a number of talented bloggers, all who are passionate in their areas of expertise, they will instruct and inspire you on a number of topics.

With both large groups and smaller, interactive workshops, we want to ensure that you leave empowered with tools to enrich your life.

Hosted once again in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC on Friday and Saturday, August 5th-6th, 2016.

We will be adding the workshops and session descriptions soon.

Since managing money wisely is so important to both of us, we have kept the cost of the conference as low as you will find anywhere.

The cost of the conference averages anywhere from only $51 – $203 per person, but this is based on reserving a room with a friend at a double occupancy rate. This price varies depending on your choice of room accommodations (see the price breakdown per room.)

If you register before March 1st, the conference price is only $40.  After March 1st, the price bumps up to $55.

This includes everything, except for the optional Hands on, Pre-conference workshops.

Included in this price is your conference fee, dinner on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, as well as your hotel for Friday evening – not to mention all the additional goodies we have in store from our sponsors.

If you would prefer to stay off campus, join us at a cost of $63, which includes the Friday and Saturday conference sessions, Saturday lunch and gift bags. Note that dinner on Friday is not included in this price.

Please see the Registration Details and break down of conference prices before you call to register.

The mountains of NC are calling you. Come be a part of something new, unique and exciting. Join a room full of women whose desire is to Become More.

Turn off the TV, grab some girlfriends, and escape on a breathtaking getaway to Asheville’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

We are so excited to meet you, and enjoy this weekend with you.

Becoming More,

Jenny, from Southern Savers and Jen, from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam

A Look At Becoming 2014

We had a great time last year at Becoming!  I don’t think I’ve laughed as hard since (especially during Kelly’s large group time)!!  For everyone that was there, check out the video above to remember the fun.  Folks that didn’t make it last year, watch and see a glimpse of what this weekend looks like.

Our goal is to send you home refreshed and encouraged and this year we definitely did that!
