For Individuals

If you’re brand new to the M&C world, Idea Potluck, Minglers, and the Life of Yes℠ Workshop are great places to start. The FAQ page is also a good place to poke around (referral list upon referral list!). To see the variety of folks who make their way to M&C, check out some of the Cheese-Its.

Featured Services

Consultant, Coffee Date, Pick Your Brain Date

For those interested in one-on-one support. On entrepreneurism, dating, productivity, being a professional speaker, figuring out what you want to do in life, and more.

Field Trips & Recess

We partner with superheroes from all walks of life who have gifts to share and either adventure out to their space (Field Trip) or host an in-house experience with them (Recess).

Idea Potluck

Eight pre-selected superheroes get six minutes each to do whatever they want in front of an adoring audience (you).

Life of Yes℠ Living Room (a Meetup)

The best kind of networking is the kind that feels nothing like networking. Un-networking if you will. This group gathers on couches and armchairs to share and connect.

Life of Yes℠ Sleepaway Camp

 A weekend filled with habit-, value-, and courage-development activities, in an environment where you feel at home with people you just met… like summer camp for adults.


A group of people interested in expanding their networks—social, professional, romantic—come for an evening of snack, drink, discussion, and low-key, no-pressure connection-making. Everyone comes solo.

Workshops, Webinars, & Classes

Saya loves sharing her personal and professional experiences and knowledge with others and then helping them apply that information to their own lives. Topics range from productivity to travel hacking to how to create a fulfilled life. Offerings are both in-person and online.

Additional Services

Chicago Concierge

From a personalized travel plan to a personable tour guide, Saya’s your chicago concierge.

Do Good

From volunteering at a homeless shelter to joining the Do Good Army as an education benefactor for Rwandan children, Cheese-Its believe in giving back.

Family Reunion Facilitation

M&C provides structured, low-key, easy, impactful opportunities for joy, personal growth, reflection, and connection. You get to enjoy family-time.

Fear Experiment℠

Fear Experiment℠ (FE) is a unique, fun way to create community, push oneself, learn something new, and laugh. A lot. Strangers come together to learn an art-form, rehearse for two and half months, and then are rockstars for a night, in front of hundreds.

Handpicked Supper Club

An intimate, invite-only evening with people better than you.

Residential Cleaning

Meshing Saya’s love of order, serene environments, and using her superpowers to bring joy to others with her desire to flourish her business through physical work, Mac & Cheese Productions℠ offers residential cleaning services.

Special Events

Sometimes Mac & Cheese offers goodness that doesn’t fit in any of the usual categories. From comedy nights to film screenings to bike rides.


Commercials, books-on-tape, talking toys, video games, promos, you name it.
