🧭 Wayfinding Through Unprecedented Change
In June 2019, Marissa architected a significant work-life reinvention and renegotiated all significant personal and professional relationships.
Never again would work come before her values, the quality of her marriage, or her own wellness.
The universe had a surprise in store: a pregnancy, a global pandemic, and an overnight shift toward remote work.
As Marissa navigated the working world as an entrepreneurial integrator, both prepartum and postpartum, she experienced firsthand the minefield of challenges and questions that modern parents face daily:
- Can working moms "have it all" – an impactful career, an amazing marriage, a connected parenting relationship, vibrant health, a regulated nervous system, and a lifestyle filled with fulfillment and freedom?
- Can you build a "work scope" that's fully optimized to create abundance in all areas of your life, with integrity?
- What's the ideal "business model" for two stay-at-home parents?
She now navigates these questions through personal experiments in work-life alignment, tapping into her 15+ years of firsthand research in high performance, time management, and energy management.
Her current professional focus is optimizing businesses that are using exponential technologies like AI, blockchain, and mixed reality to dramatically improve how we work, play, and live.
Marissa is a passionate mentor and business advisor. She especially loves helping ambitious, entrepreneurial talent forge their unique path to impact and simplify the complexity of modern life.
