In MMM, Marney meets us where we are and takes us where we never dreamed we could go! The email from Marney I received during the very first week was alone worth double the cost of program! In addition the business-building wisdom and guidance within the MMM group has resulted in several of my most cherished friends of a lifetime! I am so grateful to Marney for weaving an endless rainbow of resources and creativity throughout our sessions…and in gifts sent later in the form of e-books, free courses, and fun little notes in the mail. The inspiration never stops! Most of all, I thank Marney for her endless business know-how, and her empathy, patience, understanding, and compassion.”

Marney has a tremendous ability to give and to nurture…it’s like she has an unlimited and inexhaustible energy and passion for helping others live their dreams. I also believe that maps are the embodiment of all action, and I have integrated the mapping tools deeply into every area of my life and business.

Here’s what “Mapping and Mentoring” participants have to say:
“My business, Creative Oasis Coaching, had already been up and running for several years when I joined and during my year long participation in MMM with Marney’s guidance and resources, I was able to finally realize several of the dreams I’d had for my business for years. The amazing support system of MMM featuring direct access to the genius of Marney Makridakis herself is, to me, priceless. Marney custom tailors what she offers for each person according to where they are with their business (people who are just starting out need different tools than those who have been at this for awhile). She has an incredible intuitive gift (totally understands the right brain creative ) and is amazing business woman as well, equally adept at offering ideas and support of your left brain business building needs. Her spot-on intuition combined with her creative nature and savvy business sense is an awesome and powerful combination!”
– Jill Allison Bryan

I appreciate your super creativity and thoughtfulness…your ability to see the big picture… your sensitivity and consideration…and your never-ending support and partnership. You have helped me take my ideas into strategy, action, a nd completions to depths of expanded possibilities that match my heart. The care and support of the MMM group is also a gift. I love the deepening of Aloha on all levels that is generous, kind and beautiful.”

“Marney is the epitome of a Coach’s Coach: the ideal mentor who moves us where didn’t think we could go, the ultimate light force of intuition. I have learned so much about my structure and how I show up in the world; I have learned to honor and love that which is so special about me. I continue to learn about living in the ‘zing’, focusing on those things that bring a tingle to my tummy. I have created my business and have a clear understanding of the gifts I have been called to share with the world. I now know my work is my life and my life is my work and there is no separation between them. I have learned to ask for help and support particularly when it comes to my relationship with technology; I am the creator of my concepts and I get to ask for help with all of the other nuances I do not understand. All of this has come to be because of the gifts Marney shares with all of us who walk our paths with her. I am constantly in awe of the way Marney intuitively knows where it is I am going; at how she gently yet directly helps to keep me focused and purposeful towards living my dreams. When in 1:1 consult with her, I feel acknowledged and heard, loved and honored, revered and brilliant, even if others are present. She is my friend and my teacher and I feel blessed that I made the choice to invite her into my energetic field.”
– Barbara Krauss
“I was in a place where I needed to completely reinvent my work. With Marney’s ARTbundance Certification Training program (ACT), I got the ideas for how to do it; with Mapping and Mentoring, I’m actually DOING it. Marney is great inspiration who has infused my life with love, support, encouragement, and cut, paste and glitter, and more business know-how than you’d think could be crammed in one person. Nothing can compare to the combination of the small support groups and one-on-one coaching time. I learned so much hearing Marney coach my group mates. Then when it was my turn I deeply benefitted from Marney’s talent of being able to coach each person in their unique individual needs and desires and launch us all in skyrocket speed forward.”
– Sande Roberts
“Marney is the brightest guiding star in my True North and I look forward to MMM every week. I appreciate Marney’s mega-multi-layered expertise that she shares so generously, and the synchronicities that arise in each and every group session. I came to MMM looking for guidance about writing and publishing my book, and I found my new spiritual community.” - Karen Dale
“MMM has helped me become more focused on my work and life. Marney and MMM have empowered me to realize how much I really get done every week while also noticing the small and huge shifts within. MMM has helped me connect to a great group of women that support me in my juicy journey. Marney has a great way of gently guiding you on your purposeful journey. I am really enjoying MMM and highly recommend it for anybody that needs more focus, guidance or direction in their business or life.”
