Since my childhood days of playing office in my parents’ basement, I've been obsessed with creating processes and finding ways to automate repetitive tasks.
When I started my company in 2002, I envisioned a flexible schedule and plenty of freedom to control my own destiny. 10 years into my entrepreneurial journey, I felt like I had hit the ceiling. No matter how hard I worked, I just couldn't break through to achieve my original vision.
Luckily, I was introduced to the book Traction by Gino Wickman, and immediately felt a glimmer of hope - that perhaps I could actually get what I originally wanted from my business.
I began implementing EOS® in my firm, and quickly began to feel relief from the feelings of frustration and overwhelm that had plagued me for many years. I started speaking to clients and agency colleagues about my firm’s success, and I quickly developed a passion for helping other entrepreneurs implement EOS in their own companies.
In 2014, I was invited to join the leadership team at EOS Worldwide to head up the company's marketing strategy. As part of this team, I fell in love with the EOS Community and Vision, and ultimately made the decision to become a Professional EOS Implementer.
After diligently following the EOS Process in my own company, I've transitioned to the “owner’s box” at Whole Brain Group, while the firm’s leadership team runs the day-to-day operations.
Now, I spend all of my time helping other entrepreneurs get what they want from their own businesses!
What Marisa's Clients Are Saying
President, Federated Service Solutions
CEO, Total Security Solutions
“Marisa’s guidance has been instrumental in our success with implementing EOS® at Total Security Solutions. Before we got started with EOS, the company was doing well, but I was becoming a bottleneck to our growth because I couldn’t add any more hours to the day. After implementing EOS throughout the entire organization, we’re in a really great place. I have a strong leadership team aligned to our vision with clear accountability, our culture is stronger than ever, and I've gotten my life back!”
Co-Owner, Rejuv Ave
Creator of the IEP Method®
"With Marisa’s support, the EOS structure and tools, and a big moment to step back -- we were able to clarify roles and needs, hone in on the best way to create impact, re-work our business model, and better organize our plan. The V/TO and the rocks have been transformative, focusing us in on a limited number of things we are committed to doing brilliantly. This has made saying NO to shiny things easier (I do love shiny things) and has freed up time, energy, resources, and brain and heart space -- ultimately helping us create more grounded impact. “
Founder, Avalon International Breads
“EOS and Marisa have been game-changers for our business. Although we have been in business 22 years, we never had a clear and consistent process for planning and implementation. Marisa has been invaluable in leading us to create and execute short and long terms goals, as well as the right structure and expressed values to create the culture that we want. The icing on the cake is that our leadership team has grown to the next level as a team and individually.”
