If You’re Like Most Successful Female Financial Advisors, You:

  • Juggle work with family responsibilities (including taking care of kids, elderly parents, or both!)

  • Want to spend your work time taking care of clients the right way, but get bogged down running your business
  • Have tried to “scale” your firm, but ended up stuck and frustrated with profit that has flatlined

  • Made the mistake of hiring cheap help, contract help, or family and friends —and have regretted those decisions

  • Lack time for the recreational and community activities that could bring you a deep sense of full-fillment!

Is This You?

What Type of Financial Advisor Hires a Business Coach?

You’ve been blessed with a brilliant mind for financial services and a generous heart for helping as many people as you can.   However, as you build your book, you find yourself working later hours, even weekends, and that’s not how you want to live.  Your vision is to advise more and live better.  Growing a business shouldn’t leave you frustrated or overwhelmed.  But it is.

Are you here……and you want to be here?
Stuck in stop-start mode…?Moving toward your goals each day with confidence
Overwhelmed by what needs to be changed…?Fearlessly using change to grow and increase profits
On the verge of burnout…?Having plenty of time for life’s responsibilities and joys
Wondering where your next clients will come from…?Securely providing services to generations of families who refer others to you
Hate marketing/sales…?Enjoying deep connections and partnerships with your clients
Feeling alone…?Having a sounding board
Know what you need but not how to get it…?Applying systems and other tools to manage and market your business

Kind Words from My Clients

After working with Maria for just three months, I tripled my monthly income. Usually, after tax season, I have to look for work.  This year, clients were waiting for me to be available.

Terry Ray, Forensic Accountant, Freetrac Inc., Everett, WA

There is no doubt in my mind that Maria is a natural at minding others’ business on Business. Her honest, matter-of-fact approach is authentic!

Kimá Smith, Florida

You made me feel better about where I am in my marketing and gave me ideas of what I want to pursue, and in what order.

Susan C. S. Cristini, New Hampshire

…The impact of coaching, for me, was like being shown the road to the freeway, without yet being out of the suburbs.

Colin Hodgins, UK

….-Aha moment! I realized that the reason my business hasn’t excelled, is because I wasn’t ready. I had no vision, no business plan, no marketing tools and no direction. I was just taking anything that came my way. And that’s not how you run a business. Maria, you inspire me and my business to be the best we can be. You are a source of inspiration.

Betsy Padilla, Chicagoland

You provide lots, but mainly someone I can confide in about business or personal issues that can give an objective opinion about any problems I have. You also provide direction and possible solutions that help make life funnier and me a happier person.

Heather Page, Virtual Assistant

Many of the questions on your exhaustive list of ideal client questions weren’t part of my thought process and answering them opened my eyes to new possibilities. I came away with a specific, factual description that helps me recognize my ideal clients after 30 seconds of a conversation, so I can now easily avoid spending time with people who AREN’T my ideal and move on to those who are!

Mary Stursa, Mary Stursa, Business Manager / Administrative Support / Auditor

She is OUTSTANDING, down to earth, has real life ideas, and is extremely ahead of our times — not to mention has lots of professional knowledge. Maria gives back to those in need of constructive ideas, new ways to re-invent themselves for a new direction of their careers. I highly recommend you speak with Maria for your personal or business growth.

Vice President, Bank, PA

Maria Marsala: Life and Business Coaching for
Women Financial Advisors

Women make up only 13 to 15 percent of the financial industry. As a woman executive who survived the blatant sexism on Wall Street in the street in the 70s and 80s, I can tell you it’s better than it was, but there is much improvement still needed.

Back then, I helped secretaries become traders and told them how to negotiate the pay they deserved. Now, I want to help women advisors absolutely thrive and grow their financial firms, again, on their own terms.

I’m not going to tell you that the secret is “balance” because we both know that you achieved your level of success by being single-minded and un-balanced at times.

It’s more like very purposeful planning and prioritizing, so that you can have “it all”—just maybe not all at once or in perfectly equal measure. Throw “balance” out of the window and aspire to what I call “life full-fillment” instead, giving you the ability to:

  • Grow your empire (and profits) to a place that makes you happy
  • Take care of your family
  • Breathe again and enjoy your time off (and more of it)
