How to Engage Guests
During our Training, we had a few questions on how to get guests of all ages and genders to engage with this activity.
A simple way to engage everyone is to get them to think of a goal. Start by asking: What is a goal that you have? What is keeping you from that goal? What WORD will inspire you to move forward toward achieving that goal?
For younger kids, the conversation may not be as long or deep, but remember: they have goals too. Their WORD might be something like "bicycle" or "flower" but if they have a reason as to why it's important to them, then they're already understanding the importance of intention-setting.
If the guys aren't engaging right away, let them know that pro-athletes wear MyIntent too! Their WORDs help inspire them to work toward their goals and stay focused on what's important.
Don't worry if the guys or kids don't engage right away, we've heard many stories where the people who were quiet or most reluctant at the beginning ended up having the most compelling answers and stories by end of the night.
Besides, once they see other people engaged and excited about their WORDs, they won't want to miss out.
Let it happen organically. Embrace the awkward silence - that's where growth begins!
Use the Question Card Deck that comes with your Maker Kit to initiate powerful conversations with your loved ones!
There are many fun ways to start meaningful conversations this Thanksgiving:

The surface that you stamp on has a significant impact on the stamping depth - the sturdier the surface, the deeper your letters will be.
If stamping on a table, make sure to stamp over the leg of a table for extra stability. Also, try stamping on a concrete floor or brick ledge to find your favorite surface.
Pro tip: If stamping on a table or kitchen counter, try adding a thick wooden cutting board.
