See What Others are Saying Who Have "Gone Gutsy

Since working with Marisa as my business coach, I am more confident within myself , in my business and all the skills which I bring to the table and now have an increased client base. I have established a clear schedule and system with my work. She has guided me in establishing my own coaching programmes which at one time seemed impossible. Marisa is not only passionate about what she does, she is extremely enthusiastic about helping women in what they have set out to do; she listens and understands your business and caters to your needs which makes it so enjoyable working with her. She is full of knowledge and wisdom in vast areas in business.

I work in an industry that is not always the easiest to obtain a job if you are not being referred, and is extremely competitive. I knew I needed to step up my game to catch the attention of recruiters to stay in the 100k salary range. I had the awesome opportunity to meet Marisa at a business event in Stanford, CT. Once she told me about her company, In Our Shoes, I knew I had to work with her. Marisa’s unique ability to prepare you for those 6-figure positions, resume format, style is paralleling. Within a week of submitting my resume, I was receiving emails and calls for interviews! Thank you Marisa for your brilliance and the endless encouraging talks which prepared me for where I am today.

I am an entrepreneur who needed an accountability coach who truly understood my business goals. Marisa is passionate and driven to make you succeed! She is confident, focused and has exceptional leadership skills. Marisa exceeded my expectations and continued to follow up even after our coaching sessions. I would highly recommend her and would further the conversation by telephone for any additional questions!  +914.325.1528 JWassermann@townresidential.com

I was hand-picked my Apple in 3 weeks, flown out to their headquarters in California for an interview! I used all of her suggestions, developed my resume and signature speech for the phone and in-person interviews all based on her approach and followed her tools exactly. This was all-new information to me! Her system for helping me raise my confidence and potential worked like a charm. I feel like a million bucks. I was able to incorporate so many parts of her Gutsy Leadership System into my career while still being very authentic and true to myself. If you’re looking to get out there bigger, feel empowered in your career and personal life and get visible quickly, you’ve got to get a copy of her self-study program or sit down with her, today.
