Andrea Haverinen

Here's the thing. I've been in Marisa's community for a long time. Superhero Summits, anyone? Hi, I'm a Marketing Engineer and my name is Andrea. I help contractors develop a plan to reach their past and future customers. This way even in the slow times they bring in money AND have more free time to spend with the people at home. Know a contractor...

Anne DeButte

I started this year with enthusiasm and was full of vim and vigor as mum used to say.  My website was being updated, video's created and was getting ready to host my 1st webinar.  Then I chose to bleach my dishcloths while doing a load of laundry and instead of standing there waiting for the water to reach the right level, I left to...

Avi Waxman

After the sessions, I found that my conversations changed. Conversations with myself and my conversations with others. Soon I was witnessing an interest and negotiations with potential clients based on my new ability to express what I could do for them.

During this process, I picked up new clients and attribute this to the new understanding I had gained from the Start With You program and the resulting efforts I had expended.

Carmen Noseworthy

When I finally realized who I really wanted to work with, when I discovered my True North Business, I felt like a whole new world opened up for me.

Finally! … I “got it”; I finally saw, felt and understood how my super power fulfills a need in this world that is uniquely me.

So now armed with clarity about where to start, I am heading down the highway of Trust, letting my True North Business light the way. YES! Thank You!

Cindy Howes

I have been trying to identify my superpower since I got laid off from my corporate job in 2008. It wasn’t enough to say that I was smart and I knew a lot. In my previous attempts, I had decided that my superpower was creating a safe environment for people to make changes in their lives. While true, it was a supportive skill and...

Colette O'Sullivan

I wish I had come across Marisa, her team and this Start With You program years ago and I strongly believe everyone setting up a business should start with this program. I cannot recommend this program highly enough.

Dottie Hager

After going through a divorce in 1992, I felt a lot of shame and guilt - “I’ve ruined my kids life.”  As a principal I knew what happened to children of divorced families.  I was embarrassed that the families in my school would lose confidence in me since I couldn’t even keep my family together, how could I lead a school effectively. I came...

Ellie Clarneau

Wow! So I honestly was not sure I would make it to this point. I have been a nervous wreck the past few days trying to figure out what I was going to do. Or even where to start. Like many in this program, I feel that I have a lot of strengths and a lot of experiences to draw from. I am smart...

Esti Allina-Turnauer

I never used to be a person who was motivated to do something for the sake of money. I had always been at my best, or in the flow, when helping others. Even when I went to University to study theatre, one of my stated goals was to perform works of social importance - works that had impact beyond just entertainment value. My background...

Gillian Pritchett

In working through the exercises, I realised I could repackage me and what I do in a way that actually makes me feel excited about myself and what I am capable of doing for people. I decided to style myself the Make it Happen Specialist. My ‘You know when…’ might read: You know when someone decides to start a business, or grow their business, or build their programme or take time out to travel they invariably faff about and end up doing very little or even nothing to make it happen? Well when they enlist my support they achieve clarity, take action and make their goals and even their dreams reality”. I felt so excited by this. I was still jazzed when I woke up the next morning. I’ve even bought the domain name www.makeithappenspecialist.com.

Heather Lakatos

I've always wanted to establish a business of my own before I retire from corporate, but what I didn't want was yet another job! I was stuck in this push/pull "I want a business, I don't want a business" pattern for years. I joined Start With You to see if I could understand what my blocks were. Through the program, I learned that I...

Joyce Dias

By following the steps outlined in this course, I had not only identified my True North Business Idea, but also my specific niche in the world of floundering project teams with tight deadlines and a need to deliver big results quickly.

Juliana Nahas

With the Start with You processes, I was able to fine tune my pie -in -the- sky ideas, and ground them into small steps that I can implement to transition into my calling. I am clearer now about my zone of genius, and my branding, and can start to put the pieces together in a much more cohesive fashion than before, so I can be of service and still enjoy my freedom.

The Start With You course has given me valuable insight to prioritize and balance my personal life with my life’s work. I am grateful and happy to have renewed clarity and focus on my next steps and direction.

Katrina Burton

As a result of the Start With You program, I changed my business title to Chief Alignment Officer. My Ikigai is to help people to listen to what their lives are trying to teach them, to explore and entertain new possibilities and to take inspired action. My clients are empowered by getting clear on what they really want in life, and gaining the confidence and clarity to go get it! I finally feel like the architect who is designing my own future by helping others to do the same, and it feels so good to finally be in alignment with where I believe I was divinely created to be!

Kymberly Johnson

I signed up for Start With You, consciously stating this was a last ditch effort.  I have been coaching leaders, business owners, artists, writers, engineers, corporate trainers and more for the last 18 years, never having marketed myself nor chosen a niche.  Fact is, I've been niche averse.  Over the last 5-6 years I have spent thousands of dollars that I didn't have (and...

Linnie O'Flanagan

The beginning of this year was extremely stressful. My office manager of 6 years left, at the same time we were launching a new business. I had a lot of difficulty finding the right personnel, and I was working seven days a week to keep up. I started to feel trapped by my own trappings. I questioned why I was working so hard, and...

Liz Yang

I decided to join the program and give it a shot. As soon as I started doing the work, I began feeling hopeful again. Marisa has the brilliant ability to break down complex concepts and make them super simple and easy to understand.

My favorite part of the program is that each training has time built in for you to complete the exercise before moving on to the the next step. It was like magic to see my answers unfolding as I progressed through the training.

Now that I’ve completed the program, I am able to look back and see how all the pieces of my story, experiences and passions fit together to fuel the work I’m here to do. Start With You has given me the ability to move forward in my business with clarity and confidence in a way I wasn’t able to do before.

Manasi Kakade

All in all, I am happy to have come across this program and this clarity even before the first birthday of my business. My info-products and marketing messaging are only going to be clearer and clearer with such a foundation. Thank you, Marisa, and thanks to Start With You!

“Marisa helped me through the steps to find clarity on approaching my True North Business”

Marvin Towler

“I joined the Start With You program and realized my marketing message can come from Me. I realized I could not leave it to anyone else to create my marketing message. Marisa Murgatroyd helped me through the steps to find clarity on approaching my True North Business. I painstakingly went through all the trainings and gradually found as Marisa would say: “reiterate” my way through finding my marketing message.”

Monicka Clio Sakki

I have been taking course after course, hoping and believing that this one will be the one that will change everything for me… that it will bring that missing piece of the puzzle so that my business will start to make sense and fly!

Through Start With You I discovered exactly what that piece was, and it wasn’t at all what I thought.

The problem was all about grounding, or in my case, not grounding. I was putting focus and energy to communicate my innovative process but not so much the result.

In nature there is no growth without development and Start With You has made me go through a profound development.

Pernille Lethenborg

Going through all the questions in Start With You, listening to Marisa and her JV partner´s empowerment talks and getting coached by Marisa has brought me all the way. It has brought me so deep into my roots that I am forever grounded.

In nature there is no growth without development and Start With You has made me go through a profound development. I am now ready for growth! I am deeply grateful to Marisa and her team for developing such a profound course that can really change lives and businesses.

Ros Toynbee

I’d been pulling my hair out for probably about eighteen months trying to write copy for my leadership coaching website when I heard about Marisa’s Start With You program. I had also started a team coaching program so I was seriously worried about how I would juggle both commitments. However, when you don’t know how to describe your niche or what you do in a way that you feel proud of your website and proud to hand your card out at networking events, you realise that if you don’t tackle the block your business won’t move forward. So I made the commitment, and am glad I did.

Shakita Taylor

Before the Start With You program I knew I wanted to help women who had been victims of sexual trauma, however, I did not know how to get paid for doing this kind of work. Additionally, I did not believe I had a good enough resume for anyone to ever consider paying me. Marisa helped me understand how to use my personal relationships and...

Sue Ratcliffe

I learned and discovered how to change my perspective, how to utilize and apply my skills, acknowledge my super power and I discovered how I can support others. I learned that I can start the businesses that I love….. One business at a time!

Theresa Donahue

For the past four years I have not been able to shake this feeling. I'd wake up with it. I'd daydream about it. Often times I had to make myself not think about it before going to bed at night because it would keep me awake.  That feeling… The internal angst that felt like unused, unexpended energy.  I’ve always known I was meant to...

Janna Beek

I love to be at the age of 50 plus. I feel peace and more at home then ever. I believe that my gift is to get to the heart of the issue. My superpower is renew and create. I am privileged that I had the possibility to study with the best teachers in the world. My passion is to unlock the true exceptional...

Cathy Garner

I am so grateful for the sophistication of Marisa’s teaching on layering our campaigns, rather than putting all our eggs in one basket. As well as being more effective, it appeals to my entrepreneurial need for variety. So I ran a very simple chatterbox campaign, a limited “give them what they want” campaign, and a start with an experience campaign, including a visioning webinar,...

Sunshyne Goodfellow

Before Start With You I knew a general idea of who I wanted to reach and how I wanted to help them. This course was like a straight arrow into the bullseye of my purpose. I was able to identify how to step into the Superhero version of myself and put into words who my tribe is and how I can help them find...
