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.

The strategy and direction I received from the Gutsy Acceleration Breakthrough course, had me make the mental shift to perceiving my value as being equal to those I work and build my confidence. Your message truly resonated and instantly motivated me to apply your tools immediately. I started rethinking how I phrase my emails at work, and I have been catching myself before I use words which have been minimizing me. Since this program, I have also been actively pushing myself to speak my views at meetings to be heard, and it felt great. These simple tweaks have been effective in building my confidence this past week and I already see a positive change in how my colleagues have responded!

In Our Shoes gives me a sense of relief to know I’m not alone in this confidence struggle, and great appreciation for your workshop that helped me network with other women who can relate. The sense of community is an incredible tool that motivated me to proceed further in taking gutsier action.  Being a female civil engineer in a heavily male-dominated industry is not easy to stay mentally and emotionally strong.

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.

Working with Marisa completely changed my mindset, helping me tap into the value I wasn’t recognizing and unleash my potential as an entrepreneur. Before working with Marisa I literally had no idea what to do with my professional life, it felt pointless and hopeless. Since beginning her courses, she has helped me pinpoint where my passions and talents are the strongest with strong guidance to keep me on track. She also helped me prioritize my time and energy, worry less about stepping out on my own and feel comfortably confident “in my shoes”. If interested in learning more, get in touch.
