Thank you for your interest in stepping into this journey of personal transformation. I walked away from an IT Executive career on Wall Street to step into my own Gutsy Breakthrough Goal - leading a professional development training company and where I am today. This was a dream that I never saw the HOW for, until I discovered Jack Canfield and the work he was teaching. I turned away from the people who were bringing me down and looked up the ladder to learn from those who have achieved an incredible amount of success.
I teach you everything I have implemented personally through the Gutsy Leadership programs here at In Our Shoes and now  integrated here with The Success Principles. As a student of Jack Canfield, I have changed who I am as a person as well as my family's lives, taking  a leap of faith -  banking on me.  If I can do it, so can you.
No more waiting for permission to live a life you love. The signs are always there. When you feel it in your gut, that's your clue. That's your spirit guiding you to make a choice which will never steer you wrong.
Much love and big high-five to taking the first step to learn more.

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 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.
