What Others Say About Create the Rules

12/10 worth every penny, give her your money.

So I talk a lot about how much I hate business coaching as an industry, Marissa is the primary exception to my disdain and loathing 😂 Create The Rules as a toolkit has been super helpful to me, and unlike a number of other business coaches I’ve done sales calls and thought about working with, Marissa *really understands* and respects my neurodivergence, as well as my political commitments and values for my life and how I want to do business, while still encouraging me and making space for me to actually grow a sustainable enterprise and not put myself under the nearest bus out of a misguided sense of service or community.

I cannot tell you how infuriating it has been to have to navigate for the last 10 years through industries and conversations where I was told that honoring my *fundamental values* as a person was “limiting beliefs” or other bullshiterous nonsense. Since I started working with Marissa I’ve double and a half’d my annual income (and the important part: increased my take home) while still being very much myself.

Past Client

“I am forever changed.”

Working with Marissa shifted all of that and more. I saw myself, my gifts, and my work with fresh eyes and found ways to shift my business so that I was running it, and not the other way around. I was motivated to start implementing the great ideas I had (but often didn’t launch) and started making impact beyond what I thought was possible.

“She’s the very best coach.”

With her guidance, support, friendship- but even more so, through her leadership and example- she inspired me to pursue my mission of opening my own fitness studio and creating the type of community that I longed to see in my industry. In my humble opinion, Marissa isn’t only a great coach. She’s the very best coach. There is not one business, or person, that would not benefit from working with her.
