POULSBO-BASED COMPANY CELEBRATES 15th ANNIVERSARY

 

Poulsbo, WA—December 20, 2013—Poulsbo resident and internationally-recognized executive coach, Maria Marsala, celebrates the 15th Anniversary of her company, Elevating Your Business, which works primarily with financial advisors, planners, and professionals.

 

Marsala was working as a retail trader and executive on Wall Street when a car accident prompted a career change into life coaching—and in December 1998, Elevating Your Business was born.

 

“After my accident, I had a lot of time to sit still and think about what I’d really enjoy.  Life coaching complemented the business skills I honed during my 17-year stay on Wall Street.  After all, life happens when you’re running a business!” explains Marsala.  “Today, I enjoy staying close to the financial industry while coaching my clients to transform their practices into superb businesses.”

 

In recent months, Marsala’s business growth advice has been featured on Staples’ SUCCEED LinkedIn group and its corporate website, Michael Kitces’ Nerd’s Eye View, Investment News, BrightTALK, and FAtoday.

 

“It’s been a fulfilling journey these past 15 years and I’m so grateful that I took the risk and started this business,” says Marsala.  “When I help my clients earn more, they can give back more—as better employers and more active members of their communities.  And because they help clients reach financial goals, their clients become more active in the community, too!”

 

Based in Poulsbo, Elevating Your Business was founded in 1998 and works with financial professionals to manage and market more efficiently and multiply their bottom line.  Its founder, Maria Marsala, is an internationally-known author and speaker.  She is a graduate of Coach U, a founding member of Coachville, and a former Wall Street Trader.  She was named one of the Top 30 International Coaching Gurus in 2011 by Coaching Gurus International.

POULSBO ENTREPRENEUR SELECTED AS “TOP-IDEA MAVEN”

POULSBO ENTREPRENEUR SELECTED AS “TOP-IDEA MAVEN”
BY THE 2014 WOMAN’S ADVANTAGE CALENDAR

Maria Marsala’s Advice To Female Business Owners Appears For The Fourth Consecutive Year In The Woman’s Advantage Shared Wisdom Calendar

Poulsbo, WA—December 5, 2013—Maria Marsala, business and life coach to financial advisors, contributes sage advice for the fourth time to The Woman’s Advantage Shared Wisdom Calendar.

Marsala’s entry, “The right professional brand helps you create higher fees”, was selected from over 5,000 submissions.

The Woman’s Advantage 2014 Calendar provides daily sound bites of advice to female business owners from influential women leaders across the US and around the world. It covers key business issues including: organization, promotion, sales, and human resources.

“If you want to earn more, especially in the current economy, you must brand yourself in a way that appeals to your ideal client,” observes Marsala. “If you have high net-worth clients, you’ll hurt yourself by creating your own marketing materials. Hire professionals to create a personal brand that reflects you at your most authentic—at your highest level possible.”

Mary Cantando, Growth Expert of The Woman’s Advantage, announced that Marsala’s advice will appear on February 21st of the 2014 calendar. “Maria’s quote was selected because it was powerful, yet easy to understand. Her idea is relevant to almost every woman in business today,” says Cantando. “Women business owners and those who dream of starting a business will learn so much from the advice provided by Maria and the other 364 successful women quoted in the calendar.”

Marsala’s previous contributions to the Woman’s Advantage Calendar are:
2011 – “It’s OK to fire a client.”
2012 – “Excuses are soul killers.”
2013 – “Life happens when you’re running a business.”

Are you struggling to put your big ideas into action?

Question MarksIt’s time to kick overwhelm and frustration to the curb. You’ll have a clear action plan after your "Rent Maria’s Brain" Session!

If you look around my websites, you won’t find information on any hourly coaching sessions (hourly sessions are only offered to clients as maintenance calls). For my birthday special, I am offering you the opportunity to pick my brain for your Transformation Acceleration strategy.

During your call you’ll consciously create an action plan with the momentum to take the next BIG STEP in your business. Schedule your session A.S.A.P., to occur before Thanksgiving Day 2013 — no exceptions. We’ll hold the calls via phone or on the web (no webcam necessary). The call can be audio taped and then transcribed for you into a Word Document within 2 business days (we’ll ask you if you want this service; there is no additional charge).

Here is a sample of the topics we can cover with you to transform your business more quickly.

Set up a strategy session at 50% off and let’s get you moving forward more quickly! Save $300-$350 and the coupon code is: birthday. Pay here and then we’ll call you to schedule your session. We’ll also send you 2 assessments to complete before your call.

"I had the privilege to work with Maria for an hour regarding my executive career path. She is OUTSTANDING, real life ideas, human, down to earth, and extremely ahead of our times, not to mention has lots of professional knowledge. If she is telling you to try something, it means that she has tried it herself and had much success. Maria is successful because she gives back to those in need of constructive ideas, new ways to re-invent themselves for a new direction of their careers. Never is she afraid to say the obvious because she is ready to get you to your next step of success. If you are an executive, thinking of changing companies or careers, I highly recommend you speak with Maria for your personal or business growth."
