Design your Life + Business

Find strength in your uniqueness as an entrepreneur, freelancer, or side-hustler, and leverage your mindset to beautifully and confidently design your life + business

I will support you in identifying and intentionally re-designing obstacles to fulfillment and [your version of] success with a combination of business, branding, and life coaching. 


“Without changing our pattern of thought, we will not be able to solve the problems we created with our current patterns of thought.”
—Albert Einstein


Harness the power of your mindset to intentionally design a healthy, happy life + business. 

Being a creative high-achiever is our greatest gift and our greatest downfall. Because being aware our full potential is a constant reminder to our ego that we're not good enough, so we're always striving for “perfection.” And while that drive keeps us on track with some goals, the not-good-enoughness can seep into other areas of our lives. 

Desires are placed in our hearts for a reason. We've all been given our own unique gifts, and I believe that if we are strong in one area of our lives we can apply the same principle to other areas of our lives to strengthen them, too. 

You don't have to keep coming up short, never feeling good enough and unworthy of earning a next-level income doing what you love without sacrificing self-care and time with your family. You can have it all. You can DESIGN it all. Let's do it together.

The world has changed.

What happens on the outside is a reflection of what’s happening on the inside. Which means we’ve changed, too. 

What lit you up before, no longer feels important.

Your family needs you now, more than ever, and you want to show up for them in a big way.

The juggling act is harder, your energy is being tugged at 360°.

Your “me” time is tight, and so is the waistband of your favorite jeans.

You wish you could just squeeze in some healthier habits, you tell yourself, “this is temporary.”

But is it?


The fact is,
will never be
the way
they were.

The fact is,
things will never be
the way they were.

Like anything else, there are many ways to look at this ‘challenge.’

You see, a challenge is not a problem (personally, I don’t even believe in problems)—a problem induces fear, scarcity, inadequacy, darkness; but a challenge inspires creativity, playfulness, solutions, overcoming! What we have on our hands is a challengea chance to change, an opportunity to improve, a perfect position to redefine, restructure, and rise.

Achieve [your version of] success in all facets of your life with more impact, fulfillment, and abundance as an ambitious entrepreneur or freelancer.

I employ a designer’s approach to coaching you through business, branding, and life-balancing challenges—helping you reframe, repurpose, and redesign your life and business.
As a professional designer who’s been honing her craft for nearly 20 years, I approach life and business challenges the exact same way I would approach a design challenge.
  • Designers are innately curious, solution-oriented, visionary thinkers who believe a solution always exists
  • We push boundaries and think beyond the norm, making connections and associations that most wouldn’t consider
  • We aren’t afraid of “bad” ideas or trying something new, because we believe in infinite possibilities
  • We’re experts at reframing a situation, examining every angle from different perspectives
  • We experience what it feels like to tap into the “flow,” where time does not exist, on a regular basis
  • We are open to constructive guidance, and open to giving constructive guidance
  • We ask questions, take constructive breaks, hack through creative blocks and ultimately, utilize any means possible to tell the greater story… to solve the problem.

Let’s take the Designer’s Approach to intentionally redesign the area(s) of your life + business that are no longer reflecting your truth.

“Working with Maria has been such a transformative personal and professional experience. She told me at the start of our coaching, ‘You have the answers inside, and I'm going to help you bring them out.’ I didn't actually believe her—but she was right! Maria has led me through the process of really exploring and defining my brand, priorities, pinch points and goals. Maria keeps me accountable—with her perfect blend of patience and persistence—and I'm energized by doing the work as she guides me along. I've grown so much thanks to her expertise and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. If you want to start enjoying clarity, control and success, get Maria into your life today.”
