  • The idea of jumping with no solid client base has you unsure of your viability.

  • Your co-workers are drinking the kool-aid, and you’re starved for peers who understand entrepreneurship.

  • You’re smart but when it comes to business, you don’t know what you don’t know.

This class is not all about money or budgeting. It has been a series of empowering and healing conversations around self worth, self love and self transformation. I have a lot of clarity about who I want to work with as a client. I’ve had my first live online class, and 24 people signed up and showed up! I’m actually in business now! I just want to tell anybody who’s struggling, “Oh my G-d! you need to get on this class.” THANK YOU MARIE!

I feel like by the end of the Side Hustle class everything feels integrated – it all came together really seamlessly, really beautifully for me. I actually didn’t expect how super-aligned I feel. Being vulnerable with myself, and finding my own voice, needs and boundaries has been empowering. I got a full-pay 4-month client! And I’m excited about my next steps. I’m really proud of myself and of where I am as a whole person. I don’t know if that could have happened without this class. It has been amazing!

“It is so difficult for me to briefly summarize who I am and what I do. Marie found a great way to break down what could feel like nerve-wracking moment into a quick answer in 60-seconds or less. “

-Meredith Lejeune, Owner Thought Bubble Communications

“This course helped me to understand my money challenges more. How to set up new ways of making money. Being a stronger and harder worker. Also it helped me acknowledge that I am not alone in becoming a successful entrepreneur. So many strong women are working on their goals as well. I am a piece to a greater plan and I love my part.”  

-Candace Taylor, Chief Inspiration Officer Connecting Creations

Getting pushed into my business full time was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

I had been planning to quit my job for the better part of a year, but they fired me a week ahead of schedule! I didn’t miss a beat. My only regret? That I didn’t do it sooner.

In my first year as a full time coach, I booked over 48 speaking engagements and was paid to coach at some of the most disruptive organizations including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Spotify. 

And my background as an investment advisor allowed me to be equally effective coaching at some of the most prestigious financial giants.

But the best part was I had peace of mind, purpose, and a renewed energy for life. After 13 years in the corporate world, having my time back meant I got to be a better mom, partner, and friend. And it turns out, being a good human makes for a great business owner.

I created the Side Hustle Intensive so powerful women could walk with me step by step through a customized development plan to start living and working in their passionate purpose full time. Whether you’re a corporate climber, an artist at heart, or that life long entrepreneur who just could never seem to catch your momentum, this is your time.  

This program is all about finding your power (and the tools) to say no to how you have been doing things, and say yes (confidently) to a new chapter in your career and in your life. 

I can’t wait to spend these next 12 weeks with you to see all of the awesome you are going to create. Give yourself, and your business a shot. It’s risk free after all.

Rooting for your continued success,
