Hi, I’m Mariana!

I help strategists, consultants and service-based entrepreneurs in the marketing space like you build a business that’s a custom-fit.

You’re in the right place if:

  • You’re ready to build your business your way
  • You’ve pulled back the curtain and are sick old school marketing tactics
  • You’re tired of trying to squeeze into a one-size-fits-few formula or framework
  • You’re ready to deliberately grow a business that’s profitable and sustainable without trying to recreate what worked for someone who isn’t Y-O-U
  • You want to stop surviving and start thriving

That’s why I work with business owners in a collaborative way that’s always custom fit to them.

What is the best way to build your successful business?

It’s personal.

Not everybody loves candy (I do!).

We each have different tastes when it comes to food and how we build a successful business.

The perfect recipe is also a little different for each of us.

Too often we try to squeeze into somebody else’s ideas, processes, frameworks or follow somebody else’s path.

Sure, business building isn’t always easy, but when you find your way, things fall into alignment and flow.

Plus, you’ll find yourself feeling better about yourself and excited about your business.


No two businesses or entrepreneurs are the same, nor is what they need.

That’s why everything starts with you and your business.

I create holistic, creative and custom solutions for serious business builders.



There are too many people who go broke, burn out or lose relationships while trying to build a business following a path built for somebody else.

Experience, and expertise with a dash of humour and an uncanny ability to create clarity and inspire.

Want to experience more business sweetness?
Your expertise and knowledge have helped us get a better understanding of our business and how we can grow.

Messy Marketing Is Ineffective Marketing

Messy Marketing Is Ineffective Marketing

Messy marketing leads to messy results and wasted money Many business owners invest time and money in marketing without a clear understanding of the “why” behind what they’re doing. The result is a mess which I have dubbed marketing modge podge. Good intentions, gone...

Never underestimate the power of Mariana’s analogies. In one simple sentence about cliff diving, she summed up the exact motions I was going through and the thought processes I was experiencing when I couldn’t understand why. The second she painted the picture, I saw the best path laid out before me and I’ve been following it ever since. She’s crazy smart.
