I work with women who are ready to start their own businesses and long-time entrepreneurs who need accountability to get to the next level, as well as women firmly entrenched in the corporate world.
I believe we need leaders in every industry--whether you are called to revolutionize your own experience of your workplace from within, take the leap and start your own business, or get serious and accelerate a business you have had for a while. Often, subtle shifts create quantum positive changes in our day to day.
I serve as a sounding board and guide, having advised hundreds of professionals on how to develop as leaders and create more fulfilling working lives. As a serial entrepreneur myself, I also understand the unique challenges and rewards of start-up life.
Do any of these common challenges apply to you?
You are exhausted and overwhelmed by daily demands and know something has to give
You feel deeply it's time for a career change but don't know where to start, or you fear the financial repercussions
You need support preparing to apply for or accept a pivotal leadership position or board seat
You are an entrepreneur and need accountability around setting and meeting goals
You are a manager or entrepreneur struggling to manage millennial talent in an evolved and effective way
You are excelling in a corporate environment but feel you don't have the opportunity to express the full range of your creative gifts
You are following your dream but financial stability is elusive
You need tools to shift challenging interpersonal dynamics with colleagues or clients
You had a mixed performance review and need to improve in one specific area
Who Should Work with Me?
Purpose-driven, passionate women come to me from a wide variety of industries. Each has a burning internal drive to bring more of her full self to work, to align with her highest purpose, and to prosper.
The women I work with aim to recover from their own burnout, identify the direction they truly want to move in, and be part of the creation of a humane, evolved working world. They have tried the hustle and are convinced there is a better way.
"I had the supreme pleasure of experiencing Mary Margaret's gifts when she gave a series of talks to the Aquarian Women's Leadership Society. Over the course of three hour-long sessions, Mary Margaret guided women from all walks of life and all types of employment toward happiness and wholeness. She has a masterful mix of natural gifts and cultivated expertise. She is at once direct and openhearted; surgical in her questioning, yet contagiously compassionate. She can hold the Big Picture in her aura, allowing those lucky enough to work with her the freedom to mine as deeply into the details as they can, and when they have unearthed the wisdom that they were looking for, she's there to pull them back up, and to help them integrate the found treasure into their psyche and practice.
I personally came to Mary Margaret with (what I thought) not a lot of going on- I was in transition, from stay-at-home-mom into I'm-not-really-sure-what-yet. I thought I was going to benefit from the sidelines, gleaning wisdom from Mary Margaret's interaction with the "real" employed folks. Not so! Everything she taught directly affected me, benefitted me exactly where I was, who I was then and there. One call encouraged and invigorated me so much that the very next day I applied for a job I've always secretly wanted, and after a sparklingly successful interview, I'm awaiting a call-back and probable offer.
I highly recommend Mary Margaret's expertise, spirit, and skill to anyone who is working to better themselves via creation and career, no matter where they are in the process. Any work done with Mary Margaret will result in clarity, inspiration, and RESULTS!"

"It has been a profound experience working with Mary Margaret. As a creative and a service-based entrepreneur, I have struggled on my path with feeling confident around finances, business acumen and what it takes to build a non-traditional business. Mary Margaret has not only put those fears to rest in the most empathetic manner, she has helped me understand that I was doing the absolute best I could given the circumstances of the current paradigm: one that is linear, based in black and white and does not necessarily support creative female vision and leadership.
She has given me fresh new tools and confidence to move forward as a Visionary. She has helped me understand that my mission is vital and important in helping create a better, healthier planet and to serve humanity in a new way. Her bite-sized weekly homework assignments have had a powerfully positive effect on me. Her insights and knowledge of the skills and resources that women bring to the table in business is nothing short of a godsend. I finally feel understood and ready to bring my gift to the world."
