Or, have you started your own business, but aren’t finding the
fulfillment and profits you hoped to receive?
Tell me if this sounds familiar:
Your work life is OK but there's just something in it that’s...
Missing? Incomplete? Unfulfilling?
Yes, that's it: unfulfilling.
Like there's something you really ought to be doing in your life, but aren't.
A way you can truly contribute to the world. To live your best life.
To feel fulfilled!
And to be able to do that not just in the evenings and on weekends, but full-time!
I Had The Dream Job…
The Problem Was: It Wasn’t MY Dream!
I remember having that feeling. I had what on the surface was an exciting, even glamorous job.
By the time I was 29, I was directing documentary films.
And I was really good at it! So good that I'd been able to move up from Assistant Producer (basically the one who does all the grunt work for a film) to what I had long dreamed of doing, sitting in that Director's Chair:
Designing the message and controlling every second of powerful documentaries that right the wrongs in this world.
But in spite of all that, I had this nagging feeling that I could do more and be more.
That my impact could be much bigger than any documentary, seen by at most a couple thousand people, would ever generate.
At first it was just an inkling of "am I doing the right thing?"
But it kept growing, until one day I knew I simply wasn't.
That’s When I Realized I Would Never Be Truly Happy Until I Made a Change...
Don't get me wrong - in the eyes of the rest of the world, I had an amazing job. I just wasn't doing "the right thing" for me, personally.
I needed to be doing something different that would help me to fulfill my personal potential.
To end my work days not just tired, but joyfully exhausted!
To feel... fulfilled! (There's that word again!)
And in the process to make a great living doing it!
I just didn’t know what it was...
That's when I set out on my inner journey to find what I later came to call my personal "True North" (more on that concept in a moment).
To find that thing that would bring me joy, challenge, opportunities, and, yes, fulfillment!
It didn’t take long before one thing became very clear - there was no way I was going to be able to find a job working for someone else that would give me that particular combination: the freedom to do what would fulfill my needs and the ability to make a great living at the same time.
Are You Experiencing These Same Feelings?
There’s Something Out There That Will Give You the Personal Fulfillment and Income You Need… But What Is It?
I’m willing to bet that if you’re reading this, there's something out there that would do a far better job of giving you personal fulfillment and the income you need than the work you're doing right now...
But, like me, I bet that every time you try to think about it, you get stuck trying to figure out all the details, like:
“What kind of business should I start?”
“What the HECK will people pay me for?”
“Is it even possible to make a great living doing what I love to do?”
Or maybe you’ve just been a little afraid of moving ahead into the “unknown”...
I totally get it. I struggled with these exact same questions when I started. In fact, I ended up starting exactly the WRONG kind of business...TWICE, before I actually got it right.
As it turns out, lots of people make these same mistakes. Perhaps you’re one of them...
And of those 2%, a full 80% of THEM will fail within 5 years!
That means that less than ½ of 1% of everyone who wants to start a business will actually start one that will be successful enough to last 5 years!
If so, it’s probably because you’ve made one of:
The Two Most Common Mistakes Almost Everyone Makes When Starting a Business
Mistake #1: Copycatting
Copycatting is where you find a business model, strategy, or approach that’s working for someone else and simply copy what they’re doing. “Hey, if it’s working for them, then maybe it will work for me.”
The trouble is that everyone else is doing the same thing! Now is such a great time to build a business that lots of people are becoming entrepreneurs and are copycatting the best business models.
So if you’re building a copycat business, chances are you’ll either be lost in the noise of over a billion websites or you’ll be successful for a time, then lost as more and more people jump on the “copycat” approach you’ve chosen.
And, even worse, when you copy what someone else is doing, you can only copy the parts you can see. The odds are high you’ll miss the “secret sauce” they have that’s not visible to the naked eye -- the strategy that’s the biggest ingredient of their success -- which means that copycatted businesses are rarely as financially lucrative as the one they copied.
This happened with Amazon businesses. Perhaps you saw a course called The Amazing Selling Machine that taught tens of thousands of people to build businesses selling products on Amazon.com like kitchen utensils and other everyday things that people might need. But as hundreds of people started to work with Chinese manufacturers to sell the same silicone baking mats, the market got too crowded and most of these copycats went out of business.
That’s the challenge of a copycat business. While these ideas may start out profitable, the market quickly gets overrun, people start competing on price, and it’s a rapid race to the bottom where nobody makes money.
Now you can still succeed on Amazon, but not by copying the same kinds of marketing and products that everybody else is making…
But the biggest reason I don’t recommend starting a copycat business is because that it’s virtually impossible for a copycatted business to feel fulfilling to you over the long-term, (will you really feel fulfilled knowing you’re the king of selling silicone baking mats?) so it’s likely you’ll wind up running a business that will leave you broke and miserable at the same time!
Mistake #2: The Cookie Paradox
This is what happens when you start a “business in a box,” a franchise, a license or a certification. In other words, it’s a one-size-fits-all business that the promoters claim are pretty much guaranteed to work as long as you can paint by numbers.
Now these kind of businesses often do work, whether you’re creating a web design business or a local marketing Agency or opening up a McDonald’s or Starbucks… The challenge is that for most people, unless your only motivation for going into business is financial reward, there’s not a lot of personal fulfillment in building a business in a box.
Plus, there are some pretty big downsides to building this kind of business:
When they hand you the keys, they also hand you the rulebook -- the complete step-by-step of how to run your business. It contains all the rules and regulations, the look and feel, the voice, the attitude and the culture. In a cookie cutter business -- it’s against the rules to be yourself (and they’ll take away your business if you do!), which is NOT OK with me. How about you?
Now, I believe that you were born for a reason. You have the gifts, expertise and experiences for a reason... And you are uniquely designed to build a particular kind of business that no one else can build, like you can.
If you’re like me, you want your business to stand for something more. For something bigger, grander or more important. You want to impact people and change the world, and it’s impossible to do that when you’re playing from someone else’s rulebook.
And that’s why, to me, running a successful Cookie Cutter business would actually be worse than being broke running my own business.
“Other programs either overlooked or just completely ignored me.”
Before Start With You, Elizabeth Haines had invested in quite a few life and business coaching programs… and she felt like she didn’t get anywhere.
She was retired and choosing to start a business out of love, not obligation. She wanted to do something personal that aligned with her core value of fun, but she felt that all the other programs either overlooked or just completely ignored her.
They were cookie-cutter approaches for how to do your business, she had to follow this, this and this step.
She felt like she wasn’t the starting point, so even if you were to become successful following their approach, she would just burn out. Her business wouldn’t have been sustainable because it wouldn’t have aligned with who she was. With her passions, her gifts, and her core values.
When she discovered Start With You, her immediate reaction (in her words) was...
“Duh! That’s what I’ve been waiting for. That’s the missing piece!
Start With You really gave me the foundation for creating my business. It provided a compass to guide me in what direction to go and what directions to completely eliminate.
I now have a yardstick for evaluating what I do. Either something inspires me or it expires me. And I’m much more grounded and confident about making decisions.”
The Missing Piece:
Your True North Business
While other people (and other courses) may try to tell you what your path should be… that’s NOT the right way to do it!
Nobody else can tell you what your ideal business should be. They may be able to help, but you’re the only person in the world who can make that decision.
So many people start businesses and find that, after a while, even if they’re actually making money, they’re still miserable. They wish they had done something different.
And I don’t want that for you.
Instead, I want to help you discover what I call your “True North BusinessTM.”
Because there’s only one kind of business that will be successful no matter what: a True North Business.
Imagine a compass. Inside the compass is something called a “compass rose” that marks the 4 cardinal directions of North, South, East and West. And a needle that always points north.
You’re like this compass -- at all times, you remain calibrated to point to your True North, even if you’re not aware of it. You can rely on your True North to guide you, show you the right path to take, even as you evolve, and even as the world changes around you.
Your “True North” is that part of you that guides you in the world...
And generally speaking, it’s made up by the sum of your collected experience, your interests and your unique gifts or superpowers.
A “True North Business” is the only kind of business that will both allow you to stand out from the noise of the most crowded market the world and the internet has ever seen… and experience the long-term fulfillment of building not just “A business you CAN build,” but “THE business you’re HERE TO BUILD…”
But too many people ignore their True North compass when it comes time to choose their business, and they end up heading East, West, or even, South.
And, because your “True North Business” is founded on your internal truth, not guesses, fashions or whims, it’s easier to stay on track as others get distracted by attractive opportunities that pull them off course.
As long as you understand this, and follow your “True North”, you’ll arrive at your destination, whatever that looks like for you.
The beautiful part is that while everyone’s “True North” Business is different, the path to finding it is the same -- you need to Start With You.
This is what happened for Jane Guyn…
Who Loves Her New Business and Now Makes In A Day
What She Used To Earn In a Month!
Jane is a mother of 6 who had lost who she was as a woman and became disconnected from her sexual nature as she tried to be “super mom.”
In the process, she almost lost her relationship with her husband and realized that 98% of couples have sexual problems. And she decided she could help.
Start With You gave her a deep understanding of herself and what she wanted to share and express. Rather than creating a business that was like everybody else’s, she started “being more Jane.” And that attracted clients who really wanted to work with her.
In just the first month after the course ended, she lead a live event, spoke in another city for a group of her right fit audience, was interviewed for a popular podcast and began creating a digital product. And at the end of that month, she’s gone from zero to 8 clients.
Just one year later, people pay her the same amount she used to earn in a month in her previous job as a nurse, for a single DAY of her time!
More importantly, she loves her work so much it doesn’t feel like work. She’s built a business that’s personal to her and aligned with the things she really cares about, so it’s a joy for her to work on her business.
Everyone’s True North Is Unique...
And Once You Find Yours, The Path You Should Take Immediately Becomes Clear!
Everyone’s True North Business is different: that perfect intersection of what the world needs, what you’re good at, what you love, and what you can profit from.
Once you find your True North, you’ll know exactly what path to take and what to do next, and you’ll be able to block out distractions and naysayers, moving from fear into confidence and action.
So if you’re still at your day job…
Struggling to start a business…
Discouraged by your efforts so far…
Or you’ve had a business for a while but feel like there’s something missing…
Finding your True North Business will show you the right path and get you taking steps down it.
Getting Started Is Often The Hardest Part...
Because there’s so much pressure to get it right, taking the first step towards change is often the hardest part of the whole process.
I always say, it doesn't have to be perfect, you just have to get it going!
Let me help you create a solid foundation of a firm knowledge of your True North. Once you have that you can confidently take action and start building your business, knowing that you’re not wasting time, because every action you take is guided by your True North.
I want you to take the first steps in your business and confidently enjoy the ride.
And remember... You already have the answers inside of you right now.
Is it Time to Finally Get Out of “Search Mode” and Into “Execution”?
Erik Pounders used to work in the government science sector. He had his dream job… Then he started to got bored with it. Really bored.
What he had envisioned his job to be like, wasn’t what it actually was. Plus he was at the whim of governmental changes, so funding would come in, then leave.
So he decided that he wanted to have more control over his finances and his life, and also make a bigger impact in the world…
So he sought to figure out, “Of my gifts, what am I most suited for? Who can I help? And how can I share that with the world?”
It seems like a simple question, but it’s not. Erik spent over a year in what he calls “search mode,” without finding an answer. After awhile he began to feel hopeless and resorted to casting the widest net possible in the hopes that something would stick. Anything.
But nothing did… until he joined Start With You and discovered something that really resonated with him that wasn’t even on his radar before: Working with men who want to be in long-term relationships, but haven't been able to find the right woman.
Once he started doing the exercises and going through through the process, it became so clear that he knew it was exactly the right thing.
He felt a sense of “graduation or this huge weight taken off my shoulders once I actually knew what I should be focusing my energy and effort into.”
“Having the compass point in a direction that I can follow was just an epiphany. It really was. It was a feeling of having a concrete focus on what I should be doing instead of being pushed in so many different ways.
“And, by having that, it allowed me to really change my focus and my effort on a daily basis from one search to one of execution.
“I felt that it was an incredible moment in my life because I knew that it wasn't going to be easy moving forward. I knew that there was going to be work to do. And I'm more than happy to do that. And I enjoy that process.... I just needed to know what to do.
It was a gift of clarity. And now the impact that I’m providing for my clients is really profound. Besides food, shelter, air, and water, what's more important in life than relationships?”

"Marisa, you are a healing force par excellence. I really can't express my gratitude for the coming together of my love of painting and what has ALWAYS been my purpose - but invisible to me because of guilt and fear of not doing my part to help the planet shift from fear to love. A deep life healing took place for me last night, and I am aware of the prompts you have brilliantly built into your process that led directly to that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Yvonne McGee, Artist
“Since the class, I signed up one new ongoing client, was asked by another client to travel to Europe for meetings, and began working on a new business idea that I developed during one of the homework assignments. Incredibly powerful."
“I got to that ‘exact thing’ and then everything's been easy for me since then.”
“Marisa help me figure out exactly what I should be focusing on and what product to create. And it’s made such a massive difference to me, because she's helped me get to the exact bit where I'm doing something I love doing, something people really want. And people are willing to pay for and I've hit that.
From Marisa's training, I got to that ‘exact thing’ and then everything's been easy for me since then. Because I'm doing something that's just exactly right.”
Kat Walters, Instagram Makeovers
“I feel so joyful!”
“Searching for your Life Purpose? Just find it! It hurt so deeply knowing that I hadn’t fully given my gifts... I responded and within hours I landed my Soul’s Mission that I’d been searching for years. I feel so joyful!"
Vera Amore Tackett, Love Coach
“Found my starter niche”
"Marisa was able to clearly show me where I should start. This process was great."
Cheryl Hunter, 360FengShui.com
But That’s Not All...
Because when you invest in Start With You today, you’ll also get these incredible bonuses to support your success:
Bonus 1: Massive Action
The first bonus is called “Massive Action” and it’s my fastest path to a successful, profitable business. You see, Start with You is released over 3 weeks with 1 module per week. I don’t like to wait if I don’t have to. We can get you there as fast as you wish to get there.
Tony Robbins says that the fastest path to success is taking massive action, and I agree. As you step into your new entrepreneur identity, you’ll very soon realize that taking action is the master skillset that you need to learn. When you feel doubt or fear and being able to get into action anyway. Every single entrepreneur you admire has this skill, I guarantee it.
If you only took this one bonus and implemented it and became a master of taking massive action, I guarantee you would have success, even if you didn’t study a single module of the program.
It does neither of us any good if you invest in the program but don’t consume the material and don’t put it into action. I want nothing less than success for you, it’s my mission, and I would be remiss in my mission if I didn’t cover these master skills before I give you the rest of the magic I have in store for you.
BONUS 2: Rocket Fuel
This is where we’re going to light the fuse underneath you that’s going to power your Massive Action from day 1, for as long as you wish. And in fact, it’s not just 1 fuse, it’s 3 massive fuses that we’re going to light underneath you.
And these fuses are based on why you’re doing this to begin with. Most people get into business to have a great lifestyle, or to provide for their family, or to help people, but many of them end up burning out, giving up, and walking away from their business? What if I told you that these people were missing 2/3rds of the fuel they needed to drive them forward and keep them taking action?
When you understand and put into place the rocket fuel I’ll give you in this bonus, everything will change for you. People are going to look at you differently. They’ll say you look younger. Fitter. Ask, have you been working out? They won’t know, but you’ll know the reason.
Bonus 3: 6 Group Laser Coaching Calls ($1,500 Value)
It's hard to see yourself clearly and be objective about your business. That's why we'll do live group laser coaching sessions so you can have the support and feedback you need to tune in to your business idea and experience what I call "side door coaching" or learning through others. You’ll:
Run your ideas by me to make sure you’re making the right decisions every step of the way.
Have the encouragement and guidance of my expert team and a community of supportive peers as you make a choice that will shape your future life and business.
Get the peace of mind to know you're on track and getting the validation you need on your ideas to move forward with confidence.
Bonus 4: Sales for Superheroes ($997 value)
Once you have a business idea it's time to start getting customers. You can let go of the fear and doubt that often comes with your first sales conversations and feel the confidence that comes from knowing you have a proven, step-by-step sales script to follow.
This three-session crash course in conscious sales will give you the foundation you need to get your first True North Business clients.
Plus, you’ll receive proven sales scripts to guide you step-by-step through your first enrollment conversations.
Just think: 21 days from now you’ll have everything you need to start enrolling your first customers into your brand new business! You'll have clarity on your idea and the foundational sales training you need to get prospective clients to say YES!
Bonus 5: Ticket to Message to Money LIVE! ($997 value)
Once you finish the Start With You experience, you’ll want to keep your momentum going by taking 3 days out to join me and hundreds of other business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs in person!
During the event, we’ll focus on the next steps you need to take once you’ve identified your True North Business, and the 4 Master Keys to really build that business successfully.
And you’ll have the chance to form deep, personal relationships with a group of committed, motivated and like-minded potential partners to help you build your business!
This is going to be our 6th super-successful event, and it always sells out… and just so you know, I make it my goal every year to make each year’s event even MORE amazing than the last -- it’s a tough challenge, but somehow we manage to do it. So this year’s event is already shaping up to be incredible, and you’ve got a free ticket with your name on it.
Bonus 6: A Place In Our Start With You Hall of Fame
By completing the entire Start With You Experience and reaching Mission Accomplished within the 21-day course period, you’ll be entitled to be listed in the Hall of Fame on our StartWithYou.com website, a $1000 value!
Your listing will contain your name and company, along with a short description of your True North Business and a link to your website. This will not only be a visible sign of your accomplishment for family and friends, but will also increase your search engine traffic and could be a source of new customers!
And, if for whatever reason you aren’t able to qualify for the Hall Of Fame by reaching Mission Accomplished during the 21-day course itself, we’ll support you until you achieve Mission Accomplished as part of my “No Student Left-Behind GuaranteeTM.” If for whatever reason, you were unable to identify your True North Business within the 21-day period, we’ll give you access to twice monthly group coaching calls UNTIL you get to Mission AccomplishedTM with your True North business idea.
We’ll stick with you and help you until you cross the finish line, so you don’t have to worry about getting left behind or not getting to mission accomplished.
Bonus 7: I'm Powerful ($497)
A series of 6 powerful interviews with incredibly successful entrepreneurs who have overcome massive challenges to get where they are today. I created this series because I needed it, and because I don’t ever want to pretend that I know it all. I wanted extra perspective on how the people that I admire and respect find and draw their power when things are tough.
These essential “get your mindset right” interviews are going to show you that it’s not just OK to be yourself in business, but that you MUST be MORE of yourself than you’ve ever been before. Being pretend or fake just takes too much effort. Being authentic is the key to opening the doors to your true tribe -- the people who you’re meant to serve, people who’ve been waiting for you to show up.
If you get just one shift or insight thanks to this training it will have been invaluable, and as with most of the bonuses I’m giving you today, this one is not available for sale anywhere. You won’t find it. But you do get it free along with Start with You.
Bonus 8: This Session Of Start With You Will Be Personally Led by Marisa (Priceless)
Whenever I create or update a new program, I like to get into the weeds with my students and allow their experience to shape the program.
For this one session only, you’ll get the opportunity to be on the inside as I personally present this redesigned program. As a result, you’ll get more individual feedback directly from me as you progress through the course and attend my live coaching calls than any other group of Start With You students will ever get to experience.
Imagine the excitement of being on the ground floor as I create this new program in direct collaboration with you. You'll see your breakthroughs, challenges and questions woven into the fabric of the teaching and know that you're part of the very first group to receive this brand new Experience Masterclass Product®!
And when you consider it, that’s a small price to pay to finally KNOW with certainty what you’re here to do, and the business that’s going to be that vehicle to making your dreams a reality… and to know that you have all the right things to be successful.
I know people who wait their entire lives for the clouds to part and for the lightning to strike before they take action. This is your moment where you get to make the lightning strike for yourself...
Where you get to take control and to shape your own destiny.

Here’s What Just A Few Of The Many Testimonials We’ve Received From Past Students...
“This course did exactly what I was hoping it would do!”
"I was having so much confusion about what business to create, I kept getting stuck. During [the course], as Marisa described in detail each section and I worked the assignments, I began to actually see and feel my gifts and my business offering unfolding before my eyes. As a result, I know now what my gifts are and how I can share them to help others. This course did exactly what I was hoping it would do."
“Find Your Strength and Passion”
"Marisa has an uncanny knack for how to make connections between your areas of strength and passion, and ways for you to get them in front of an avid public from the position of leader."
Ken Christian, #1 Selling Author
“My Creative Juices Are Flowing”
"Loved it and sooo helpful to get my creative juice going and confidence up; I kept writing notes as I got so many ideas how to phrase my story. Thank you Marisa, I am so glad I signed up for this course!"
Pamela W., London, UK
“I now have an outline for a book”
“I appreciate how the whole program creates a solid foundation for understanding my relationship to my business and what my next steps are in moving toward its success. I now have an outline for a book. That was enough to get me off and running. I have the outline completed this past week, my writing schedule for the next week’s chalked out. I am so much clearer in what I want to express and how to go about doing that.”
"My business has been transformed. What's happened in the month since the course ended? I've lead a live event, spoken in another city for a group of my right fit audience, been interviewed for a popular podcast and begun creation of a digital product. I have gone from zero to 8 clients. Understanding my Superpower has increased my confidence. I know where I am in the business development cycle which means that I know what I need to do now to grow my business. I am grounded in my price point and offering making it easy to ask for sales. I am comfortable communicating with potential clients about how I can help them. I am in action.
What was once a source of frustration has become a source of pride and empowerment. I feel good when I wake up in the morning and think about next steps to take to move forward. There is something very different about Marisa. She has an unusual combination of brilliance, intuition and artistic integrity that results in an integrated approach to her powerful work. She combines her deep understanding of personal development, business process and vision to create magic.

She's the real deal. Honest. I only wish I had found her sooner."
“Start With You really had such a big impact on me because when I first decided I wanted a business I wanted to do everything. I wanted to interact with everybody and have this really broad net that's going to help everybody with all aspects of life, health, wealth, and relationships. Of course I knew that it would probably be better for me to niche down into something. I just had no clue how to do that on my own.
I'd been searching for a little more than a year on my own. Then through Start With You, I found something that really resonated with me, where I realized that, "yes, this is exactly what I should be working in."
And I hadn't even considered it before. But after you go through the process it becomes so clear. I knew it was exactly the right thing.
And by having that, it allowed me to really change my focus and my effort on a daily basis from one search to one of execution.”

“Marisa's teachings lay the groundwork for everything that your business is and will become.”

“I can now take inspired action”
“What I learned from Start With You is that if you want your business to have longevity and to fulfill you for the long haul, it means building your business around who you are and basing it off your core values and your super powers that you've had. Since you were a small child. And then when you have that. Your why becomes this North Star that you never lose sight of. ”
Now, It’s Time for YOU To Act...
There’s a part of you that would rather do nothing than to risk embarrassment and failure.
That part of you is not rational, nor does it always work in your best interest.
That part of you may, right now, be giving you reasons why you shouldn’t take action now. It will always have excuses and delaying tactics.
But your dreams deserve more than that.
And if, deep down, you know that, then you really only have two choices:
You can continue to push your dreams to the back burner and stifle your unique inner power that’s begging to be unleashed… saying that it’ll happen next month… next year… if ever.
Or you can join us and know that after 21 days you WILL have your True North business started with confidence, knowing that it’s the RIGHT thing for you.
So are you ready to START WITH YOU and get massive clarity and confidence to take action?
Q: Will this help me make money, make sales, and market my business?
Q: How is Start With You different to other programs?
Q: Will Start With You work for MY business?
Q: What if I don’t have a business yet? How do I decide what business I should start?
Start With You is all about helping you find or clarify what we call your "True North Business” idea.
Whether you don't have an idea, you don't know which idea will be profitable, or you have too many ideas, this program is designed to give you the clarity you need to make a confident and profitable choice so you can stop spinning your wheels and move forward in the right direction.
If you still have a J-O-B and you’re dreaming about starting your own business...this is the program that will help you get out of the dream stage and into the action stage.
Once you have an idea that you know will work…
Once you’ve gone through the process and have the clarity and confidence to move forward…
You’ll have a step-by-step plan in place, so that you can finally quit your job and start being your own boss!
Q: What if I already have a business?
Even my students who are already running businesses get incredible clarity from the Start With You Process…
They realize that they need to change their offer, hire different team members, or discover something about their business that needs a change.
And once they make that/those change(s), everything is different, easier, more profitable, more fulfilling, more…
Start With You will Help you identify the changes you need to make to turn your current company into the business of your dreams!
Q: What if I can’t make all of the calls?
They’ll all be available for you in the secure members area, don’t worry!
We also announce our times well in advance and alternate our meeting times between 11am Pacific and 2pm Pacific to accommodate different time zones and give you the ability to attend.
Q: What if I’m not ready to start my business yet?
If you don’t feel ready, stop and ask yourself, “WHY don’t I feel ready yet?”
Are you still not clear on your business idea or business model? Are you afraid that it won’t work out? Are you waiting until you have all your ducks in a row?
If any of those are even a little bit true… Start With You is the program that will finally help you figure out WHAT you need to do… and get you on the path to DOING it!

“All the mystery was gone and I could actually implement!”
Maria Kellis is an energy healer. She found it “hard for me to express in words what I do.”
In the principles of Start With You, Maria found “a great beginning for structuring everything, for understanding who I am, what I do, ...how to convey this message and also build a business around it, so I didn’t have to keep floating from one person to the next.
She found that “Marisa has a way of taking the very incongruent, very airey fairey thing that I do and making it so concrete that I can explain it to people, so I can change lives with my work.
After Start With You, all the mystery was gone and I could actually implement!
I feel like a completely different person. I feel more powerful and yet more humble at the same time because I truly understand myself.
I don't go into that space of worry anymore, because I know the steps. When things are not flowing, I know what to do next. And that's an incredibly new experience for me. It's almost like I have developed the tools to really shift and change who I am and how I perceive things.
With this new confidence and clarity, I went from making $40K a year to having my first $20K month!”
Maria Kellis, Medical Intuitive
“I now know what it is that I'm really meant to do and that's what I'm doing in retirement.”
Richard retired from teaching critical chain project management at a graduate level for Stevens Institute of Technology. As he did so, his wife gave good advice, saying, "You shouldn't retire from something you should retire to something." Now, the question became, what should he do?
The thing that he found extremely powerful was the Start With You exercises designed to lead him through that kind of discovery. “No one had ever asked me,” he said, “What are you meant to do? And, if they did, they didn't have exercises to help me find an answer to that.”
He quickly realized he wasn’t happy doing what he had originally planned. He felt “Something's missing. Something's empty. This is not it yet. You haven't found it.”
“Start With You helps you figure out who you are or who you want to be... that makes it really powerful because then you can... put all the pieces together.”
Now, “Instead of trying to be good at doing lots of things or saying yes when people want this or want that, I now only say yes when it fits with who I am, what I love to do... and what is valuable to people, so that they're willing to pay for that.”
Doing so helped him simplify and made him more effective. It’s also made him unique.
“I only teach. Nothing else…. And I do it well. I concentrate on it and I don't do the other things. And that also now means that I can fully support my students.”
Richard Zultner, Critical Chain Project Management Teacher
“I feel like I stand on stronger footing when I got the ‘me parts’ really clarified.”
“I went to a deeper level of understanding what my business was, why it was in my life, who I was serving, and what the primary needs were that I was meeting in them. This helped me clarify my marketing, my messaging.
When the foundation of anything is in place, what you build on it can be strong. When I walked away, my foundation was stronger. No matter what actions or strategies or goals or plans I have, there's something strong they're resting on. They're resting on me.
And with that clarity, we can think we've got it already, but we really don't. We can think it's kind of extra, but it's really not. And so for me I feel like I stand on stronger footing when I got the "me parts" really clarified. And that’s what Start With You helped me do.”
“One of the most foundational important programs that is humanly needed.”
Lisa Knox is very successful online marketer. Though her business was already successful in traditional terms, she realized that “I not taken some of these steps. I would have been back peddling and potentially... breaking up a partnership or having to tear down some of the products that I created because they were [not] in alignment with who I was wanting to be.” But the Start With You process has given her clarity, “the foundation to move into every stage of my business growth now, with confidence that I know exactly why I'm doing what I'm doing, who I'm doing it for, what I'm going towards, and most importantly, it's letting me have fun in what I'm doing. She's given me the roadmap and the permission to enjoy the process.
“As somebody who's in this industry and someone who put my ego aside and my pride aside and did it, I could not urge you and lovingly demand you strongly enough to go through it because it's it is a way to start right. It is a way to get congruent with yourself. It's a way to get … with your business objectives and goals and it is probably one of the most foundational important programs that is humanly needed.
“It's probably the most foundational program I would recommend anybody who's looking to be in this space take. And more importantly, it's not something that I would wait on.
“So if you're if you're down the road and you're in business and you just kind of feel like there's holes or you're like whoa I'm missing some pieces, go back and take it.
“If you're thinking of maybe dreaming up a business idea, take it.
“If you're in the place where you're somewhere in the middle ground it's like it's, take it it's such an obvious you need to take this to get to where you're wanting to go.
“And she guides you in such a way that it's impossible for you to walk away from it... she spaces the program out it's so action oriented and there's so much self-reflection that happens throughout the 21 days that allows for you to be able to get so much movement in momentum that is going to kickstart you into the next phase of whatever it is that you're growing.
“So if you're considering it, take my advice. I just strongly urge you to go for it.”
