1. One-to-one

I work with people who are fully committed to themselves, their business and creating a positive impact in the world.  If you’re ready to double, triple or 10X your business, contact me to book a FREE 30-minute Business Breakthrough session.

During this session, we’ll work together to… 

  • Create a crystal clear vision for your ultimate personal and professional success 
  • Uncover hidden challenges that may be sabotaging your growth and keeping you working too many hours 
  • You’ll leave the session renewed, energized and inspired to take action!

Maria has mentored me both formally and informally for a couple of years now, especially around business strategy and development, and remains one of the first people who’s council I look for and trust above all others. She brings rare clarity to almost any situation, but for me it’s her blend of deep practical commercial experience and extensive people skills that sets her apart. She’s ‘been there’ but can also see beyond.

She’s a brilliant person to have in your corner, just don’t take too much of her time as I’ll likely need her as well!

I have been working with Maria for a short time and can honestly say, after years with a multitude of different business coaches, none were as effective or gently persuasive in their approach as Maria. She has an uncanny ability to find out whatever issue you barely want to look at and with laser focus, helps you sort the fluff from the stuff and get you on track. I have made more progress in this short time than I have in years.

Maria deals with the emotional restraints while providing practical action steps to take on strategy and performance for my team, which I have struggled with for years. I can’t thank her enough and really look forward to our sessions, as she continues to probe and push me in a meaningful direction.

Working with Maria led me from a place of ‘burn out’ and anxiety to a place of discovery. Maria guides you to challenge your thinking, your priorities and your lifestyle in order to re-imagine a more balanced way of being, and a more hopeful way of thinking.

3. The ‘Doing Day’ Workshop for Business Success

The ‘Doing Day’ is a powerful, live 4-hour group session designed to grow your business.  It will give you an overview of the 5 core inter-dependent processes or universal principles of any business:

  1. Value creation: Discovering what people want and need, and creating it
  2. Marketing: Attracting attention and building demand for what you’ve created
  3. Sales: Turning interested people into paying customers
  4. Value Delivery: Giving your customers what you’ve promised and ensuring they’re satisfied
  5. Finance: Bringing in enough money to keep going and make your effort worthwhile.

To be successful, every business, big or small, needs these five processes working effectively. Once you clearly define or diagram each step, you’ll have a good understanding of how your business works and a much better chance of success. The Doing Day is a great opportunity to work on your business rather than in it. The power of the group workshop lies in the shared experience. Together we explore what’s working well and what needs attention for you and your business. You’ll leave the session with a clear picture of where your business is and the steps needed to take it to the next level. The workshop includes a 30-page workbook.

I found the Doing Day session really useful. It was great opportunity to stop and review some of the dynamics of our agency and to think of new ways to promote it. It was also interesting to hear from other business owners and share their own experiences.

We are actually working on a new portfolio and website, something I was motivated to do after your workshop. Many thanks!
