Once Upon a Time, There was a little girl that dreamed about making a difference. She wanted everyone to be happy, fulfilled safe and living in harmony with each other and this included animals and people. But she did not know how, she did not fully understand why and she certainly thought she did not have the resources of time, money or team or even influence to do this. She longed for Fairy Godmothers and Princes Charming, but none showed up. Or maybe they did, but she failed to recognize them because she was unaware of their presence.

Well, Life happened along the way and brought valuable lessons and experiences, and from this stormy time she realized she needed to start her own business so she could step into her Purpose driven by her DNA. Again, Fairy Godmothers and Princes were very conspicuous by their absence.

And then with the help of some coaches and valuable mentors (and she had begun to discern who could be trusted and led by example) she began to learn that she was the Fairy Godmother and the Princess Charming all rolled into One. So she began to wave her magic wand and behold! She landed into a world of hope, of teachers that appeared in droves , to take her by the hand and tell her, The time is Now to make that difference you were born to make. The whispers grew loud, until finally...she jumped!

That little girl was and still is ...Me. I decided I would start where I was and in my employed career as a Project Director, I had earned credibility for working with international multi-skilled professionals across different cultures/languages and time zones and one of my Superpowers being Humour and Compassion, was quickly able to bring harmony and Efficiency to any team I was a part of. Still, I was constrained to the work arena of the company I was employed with. I need to take a bigger Leap of Faith and launch my service into the world, to a larger audience.

I started with teams I volunteered with, world changers, cross country teams unified by a common make a difference to the world we live in. I realized that to achieve anything of significance we need a team (we can only go so far by ourselves and through our own efforts)

Soon it was time to launch a paid program, My Team Optimization System. Because a team can only function as well as the sum of all its parts and when you are on the team, you cannot see what is and isn't working. (It is like the saying goes, "You cannot see the picture when you are in the frame").

That's where I come an external to the organization team coach, I have been called "the People Whisperer" or the "Team Whisperer" because I can help the team understand the gaps between where they are and where they want to be and help them define, align and implement their goals, shepherding them towards their dream Team and Outstanding results.

But where to Start? How do I reach the people who needed to hear my message? Would I succeed at playing my part with my life and gifts to make a difference? I was paralyzed by fear and the seeming impossibility of it all!

Until I met Marisa and signed up for the Experience Product Masterclass.

I learned that the First step we take towards clarity and bringing our Message to Life is to overcome Inaction and we can only do this if we are willing to Fail. It's Ok. We can iterate our way to awesome. But we can only do this if we start and make a few mistakes. I mean even God made Man first, before He got it right and made Woman! (No offence intended, gentlemen, but just saying!)

Also I tended to get paralyzed by the technical know how I thought I lacked and needed to launch my product. How wrong i was. We already have the skills we need, and the rest can be learned. We don't bring our Message to Life because we are uncertain and afraid.

Once I got past that I started speaking to everyone I met over Christmas and at Pre-Christmas parties where everyone thinks no business is going to happen. Wrong again! (Happily so)

My first client signed up from a conversation started at a Christmas party, followed by a small workshop which led to a biggish 3 month contract.
My second client also came from a connection made just prior to leaving on a short Christmas break... I might not have got that sale had I not followed up, upon my return. And my third client (still under discussion) is coming from a referral from the first one. And that's how we gather momentum.

This Little Girl is seeing her dream come true, of aligning teams to make a bigger difference wherever our path takes us. Wishing the very same for you, dear Reader! Because the Fairy Godmother and the Magic You!

I’ve had my business for almost 10 years. The typical creative deal: pitch projects, meet deadlines, convince clients they need to pay for quality and that the teen kid down the street can’t do the same thing for way much less. It’s all trading time for money.

For several years, I’ve felt there had to be a better way to go about this. I picked up some courses on building an audience business online, but never made it through them. Lots of trainings on building a blog or email list or social media engagement. All very much little pieces here and there.

Summer a year ago, I determined something had to change. At the same time I got an email from Marisa about early bird registration for Message to Money. It was the following February. Of course schedules are clear that far in advance, so I signed up. Registration wasn’t that much, so I figured I wasn’t out much if I ended up not going. But I went.

February 2016 I was in LA for Message to Money. I knew it was going to be good from the previews Marisa had provided. No, it was way better. I took notes like crazy, seeing a new direction for my business unfold.

At the closing, when we all shared what the weekend had meant to us, I said that I came to try to fix a business I didn’t like anymore and left with excitement and feeling like I finally really am an entrepreneur.

Back home, I formulated a plan to pivot the business. It felt like changing the course of an aircraft carrier. I have ongoing client commitments that need to continue, so can’t mess with those at this point. I put together a curriculum of things I needed to do to get from here to there over the next year. It felt like being in grad school again.

One of the big action steps in the curriculum was to develop an online product for my refocused business. Just at the time I was ready for that step, Marisa sent out an announcement that she was launching something called Experience Products Masterclass. It was all I could hope for.

The 8 weeks promised to be grueling on top of my regular client work. Yet, I knew that this was the opportunity of a lifetime. Actually, if I didn’t take the EPM class, I’d still have to do all the work there on my own because I was committed to get to the end result of launching my own online product.

So I took a deep breath and jumped in. The class has been busy, very busy. I went in thinking I would productize my main offering: done-for-you website in 90 days. Talking with my coach, I pivoted to offering a course to go before the full website deal: A 4 week course to create a blueprint for your next website. That tied in with the feedback I got from my survey and from talking with clients. My course would allow people to cut through the confusion, get to know me, and build confidence in what they need in a website, all before committing to a full website project.

In EPM, Marisa has walked us all through the process, start to finish, hammered in that done is better than perfect (yes, I’m a perfectionist and would keep fiddling to get it better and probably never launch). The pace has been quick. All reminding me of being film production classes in college where all students invariably would take incompletes (because we couldn’t get the film done in the 14 or 16 weeks of the semester, but we would be able to finish it on top of another semester’s schedule).

Back then, our film professor would just shake his head at our youthful folly. I figure that’s how Marisa feels about us poor EPM students and I know the 2nd and 3rd and 4th time around, developing an online product will be so much faster. I learned so much. It changed my whole perspective on what I deliver and I want to productize and experiencify everything I do going forward.

I’m behind schedule and just about to open registration for my course. I’m excited about the course and its potential. Since it is at the start of a customer journey, I see how it can easily provide a very significant cash flow into the business that will keep going for years to come.

I’ve also taken what I learned in EPM into other areas of my business. I recently talked with a client about me providing content management services for their website. New was that I presented it entirely in terms from EPM, asking the client “What if you knew that content on your website was being taken care of for you in a timely manner…”, focusing on the transformation and not the “here’s all the great stuff I’m going to do for you”. The client said ‘yes’.

At $2200, it’s not a huge contract, but it’s the start of productizing what I previously offered as totally custom services (and never very successfully). And at $2200, it exceeds the minimum goal for EPM, even before registration for the actual course has started.

Would I recommend EPM to someone else? If you are serious about launching a product online, this is the way to do it. Marisa delivered so much value, and kept adding more value as the course went on. I know I will be using these materials again. Yes, I need to launch and deliver my first course first. But then there will be another online product and another…

As a naturopath and mind-body practitioner in private practice for over 16 years I was struggling with burnout from delivering a 1-on-1 service. I had tried several times to create an online program to create leverage in my business so that I had more time and location freedom. The frustration was that each time I created a new program I would only get a few people register and then would have to create and deliver a program for the. This was very time consuming and just created more stress for me. Joining EPM allowed me to get way more clarity about my program offer (mission), how to create marketing content that spoke to my potential clients frustration and pain. And clear marketing strategies to help me get the clients.

The result was that I enrolled 9 brand new clients into my beta 1:few program totalling over $8,000 AUD in product sales. The really exciting thing is my biggest take away from doing EPM is that I may not get the result I want the first time I deliver the program and that is ok. In the past I would give up after the first attempt. My first intake of my Holistic Weight Loss Masterclass has well and truly given me a proof on concept and I'm so excited to see the results as I continue to role out new intakes of the program in the future.

Thanks Marisa for creating such a complete program from program concept, marketing and delivery. No other program I have purchased in the past has covered everything you need to be successful. THANK YOU

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Creating a mission statement and future vision really helped me to be specific in what I was going to help people to achieve. Letting go of doing things perfectly the first time. I fell short of my goal and was really beating myself up, then I realized what I had actually achieved through the 10 weeks was huge. This is only the first time marketing this program and I can see that overtime I will be able to enroll many people into it. I have just started delivering my EP and really need to focus much attention to this now that I've finished marketing the program. Although I have 1 more email to send out, final registration closes in 6 hours. :-)

How did EPM help you become successful?
Gained lots of clarity for marketing communication. I made the decision to run my program at a beta price point. They actually only paid for the physical products required over the 3 months (supplements). Once the program is finished I will decide if I continue the same way (hoping that I will have created long term product users and will still make money from them in the future and ongoing). Or I may add an actual program fee also. Before EPM I would never have considered only charging for products.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
Hopefully I have created something that is easy to scale and leverage. More location and time freedom

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Previously when I had created group programs I would only have 2-3 participants and would end up having to create an entire program without making any money. Whilst this time I haven't made a profit I had 9 full registrations as well as another couple people who were already product users join the program and purchase more products. Plus this program will lead to ongoing product sales with the participants even after the 3 months finishes. Rather than just a 1 off sale

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
Fine tuning creating the experiences within the delivery of the program so that people get the results and then recommend to their friends and family.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thank you for such an inclusive program. All the pieces that I needed to do this were included which I've NEVER received in previous programs. And I've done a lot of them.

We've been successful direct sales business owners for many years. When we made a shift to a virtual office we realized that operating without a brick and mortar location was such a relief. 10 years later after we sold our previous business thought it would be easy to get into an online business. The technical was a huge obstacle but looking back it was moreso a lack of mentorship. We got involved in an affiliate marketing business through a friend and learned about a duplicatable automated presentation and purchase system.

That was $4,000 USD. It took 3 years to get through trying to master that business model only to learn that the leadership seemed to move from one opportunity to another, which was about another $12,000 USD "lesson". Understanding that, we were totally turned off and decided to go back to our roots and create our own product based on how we made over $50M in direct sales. That took about 8 months and our beta class was very well received and opened up some one on one coaching opportunities.

But still not where we wanted to take this business. Now we had the issue of facebook advertising which we'd taken a course on $500 USD. Fast forward another year we came across Marisa and EPM. By then we were fairly jaded to "courses" but something Marisa was saying drew us into taking another roll of the dice.

After taking the EPM we have a working salespage, thank you page, payment system, follow up PDF material ready to download, an autoresponder is set up with our initial nurture series setup, we have a survey and a plan for our launch. The course had amazing tech coaching available that taught me too many things to list! All of this after 4+ years of stumbling around buying other courses!

Thank you EPM and Marisa for putting together this "real training" course to seriously help those who want to build an online business, help themselves.

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?

I'd say messaging. It was daunting but there were so many exercises in the beginning focused on it, it made it very comfortable by the home stretch building out the marketing materials.

How did EPM help you become successful?

EPM gave us accountability, within direction so we knew what we needed to do. We trusted the process.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?

We now have a real online business, we've seen money come through our sales page and into our bank. It's an empowering experience.

What has been the biggest change in your business

We have a whole new course that now has students enrolled! Before we second guessed what we should be doing and now we are moving forward with confidence.

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?

We'll continue to improve and our knowledge will help us to create more as things evolve.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Marisa is brilliant and I very much appreciate this course, the work and the support EPM provided.

2016 started with a declaration and commitment that I was going to put myself 100% into my business. I started out by hiring a business coach and joining a mastermind group in my home town. While the idea of being held accountable helped me to make some progress, I wasn't really stepping out fully.

I say "idea" of being held accountable because I realized I was making progress because I was holding myself accountable. I wasn't really getting that much out of the program or the coach I'd connected with.
I felt I'd wasted money.. .money I didn't have.. .and wasn't making progress. I'd tried another online course a couple of years ago, and also didn't make the progress I was hoping for.

When I saw Marisa's videos introducing the Experience Product Masterclass, I was hesitant. Yet she was articulating exactly what I'd been feeling. I've been interested for some time in expanding my work to reach more people, and while the internet is a great place to do that, I've never liked that typical online products don't offer real connection or soul to soul interaction.

Marisa's promise of a true experience that would feed, engage and sustain me drew me in. Murray was also really helpful in being super clear about what I could expect in the program. I took the leap and signed up.

I still can't believe the quality and potency of the content and learning! I feel like I accomplished more in my business over the 8 weeks of the course than I have in 7 years of (sort of) being in business!

While I didn't reach mission accomplished in terms of dollars (though I did get over halfway there), my personal mission of really stepping into my work fully, and putting it out there in the world in a bigger way was accomplished 100 fold!
I'm a lifestyle and empowerment coach, and my biggest passion is connecting people with the power of the Sacred Feminine within. I have a deep longing to bring balance and healing to a sorely out of balance masculine world, and a strong belief that it is women who will bring this balance and healing.

I'd been feeling hesitant to stand behind my work out of fear of seeming too "woo woo" or "fluffy" for a long time. With the EPM program, I was encouraged to really own who I am and what I'm here to share. Out of that was born Mother's Medicine: Awaken the Sacred Feminine Within

My program focuses on supporting mothers to feel nurtured, connected and empowered so they can step into the lives they were born to live.

I finally feel that I can be the advocate for women who struggle to advocate for themselves. I now have a platform to support women to take charge of their lives, and step into their roles as powerful, wise, far sighted leaders.

While I'm still growing my list and outreach, I know I'll get there, and I'm more confident than ever that my work will support thousands of women to awaken and embody the power of the Sacred Feminine within themselves!

Marisa and her team are top notch. The care and love they put into the program is unparalleled, and never have I been surrounded by such a powerful, supportive and encouraging community.

So, as far as I'm concerned....MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!

Update as of February 2017 (2 months after launching my 6 week program): My Mother's Medicine: Awaken the Sacred Feminine Within program was such huge success that all of the women, plus one more that really wanted to get in on the action, asked to start my planned 9 month deeper dive program, Wisdom Rising: Embody the Sacred Feminine. I wasn't planning to do this until September, but the women insisted!

I couldn't be more grateful or feel more blessed!!! I'll be offering a new Mother's Medicine 6 week program in April 2017, and still launch another 9 month Wisdom Rising program in September. I feel like this program has set me up for a future of phenomenal success, and more importantly, I'm putting the work into the world I care so much about, and serving the women who need it! What a gift!!!

Over the last couple of years I had a combo of fear of failure and perfectionism stopping me from taking the leap to launch my first online program.
Marisa and EMP inspired and empowered me to just go for it. As a result, in less then 10 weeks, I've launched my first online program with 91 people, made $8827 and I'm having a positive impact in all of my participants lives!

How did EPM help you become successful?
Making my product experiential, having a time line for completion and our weekly coaching calls all contributed to my program becoming successful.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
EPM and the success of my first ever online program has empowered me to believe that I have what it takes to be a successful online marketer and to have huge positive impact in the world.

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Before EPM I was procrastinating launching my first online program, because I had a combo of fear of failure and perfectionism stopping me. Marisa and EMP inspired me to just take the leap and go for it. Now in less then 10 weeks I launched my first online program with 91 people, made $8827 and I'm excited that I'm having a positive impact in all of my participant's lives!

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
I am excited to have broken though the inertia that I felt over the last couple of years that stopped me from taking the risk to launch any programs. I'm also excited to keep making a positive impact in the people that have registered in this program and to use everything that EPM has taught me and launch more programs in the future.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
I'm super grateful to Marisa and EPM for giving me the tools I needed to reach mission accomplished and launch my first ever online program, enrolling 91 participants and making almost $9,000 in less then 10 weeks!

I have spent years taking LOTS of internet marketing, sales, course-building, copywriting, you-name-it courses, from big names and no names and everything in-between, and while I’ve gotten nuggets here and there, I never felt like I had the roadmap to the big picture. You were either up in the ether “be a 7 figure authority” (how?) or down in the weeds “do some content marketing to build authority” (but then what?)

EPM is the first and only program I’ve taken which takes you from wherever you are at – YOUR starting point, whatever that may be – and shows you an explicit roadmap to achieve your goals.

I have struggled for years trying to explain what I do, generate leads, make sales and build a business I can sustain. Ever since completing the Iditarod Sled Dog Race to celebrate my 50th birthday, I have known that the dogs have taught me far more than I taught them, and that my mission was to figure out how to share that with other people. I have had so many false starts with all the other programs I have joined - it’s been frustrating and expensive (time, money and health-wise). I tried EVERYTHING, from freebies to monthly membership programs to $15k mentorship programs…nothing helped me crack the code.

Until EPM.

Marisa’s program, with Coach Samara’s support, has been so refreshing and revealing. Some of the items were very basic on first glance, but I plugged through them as though I had never been trying to develop a product before, and the results were revolutionary. Clarity and specificity I’d never had before. Support and guidance that gave me what I needed, when I needed it.

The big reveal for me came 7 weeks into the program, as I realized through feedback from Marisa, the coaches and the Facebook group that my approach to my offering was confusing (to everyone except me), and once I realized that, it required a pretty massive pivot and redo in order to bring everything in line with my new direction and positioning. I am beyond grateful that happened during the program, otherwise I’m pretty sure I would have continued to struggle as I had been for years, until I utterly ran out of time, energy and money.

Thus EPM has given me the gift of clarity and focus, and the tools to fully implement that. Right after my big reveal I fractured my spine, so my EPM development energy has been redirected into healing for the last few weeks of the course. But that really doesn’t matter – it doesn’t change the trajectory and clarity I’ve gained. Can’t thank Marisa, Coach Samara, and the entire EPM community enough for that! I am truly excited to see where this all goes and how my life, business and impact will be so much different by the end of 2018.

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Be clear on THIS step, finish, then focus on and get clear on the very next step. Step by step gets er done. Multi-tasking is a myth, lol.

How did EPM help you become successful?
EPM is the first and only program I’ve taken which takes you from wherever you are at – YOUR starting point, whatever that may be – and shows you an explicit roadmap to achieve your goals.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
Clarity = confidence, enthusiasm, focus. EPM is ensure I am successful, and can live my mission, because following the program does not allow for distractions. Iterating your way to awesome works in all aspects of life!

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Before I spent lots of money and time and had nothing to show for it. Kept going round and round the hamster wheel without any progress. NOW I know I have the clarity to iterate my way to awesome, and serve those I was meant to serve.

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
Building a vibrant community of those I was meant to serve. Sharing the lessons from the dogs to help drive positive leadership changes so desparately needed in this world.

I had only a vague idea what to expect when I started the EPM course. Being a life long academic I have never been in business and did not know where to start. Together, these two things filled me with apprehension. From the very first module, Niche Down – Profits Up, I began creating clarity in what I needed to do to get my business going. One of the most valuable things I found was that the modules really are bite-sized pieces that do not overwhelm the novice. As the course progressed, it became clear that the pieces fit together in a way that would help me get to a product launch. Perhaps my greatest AH-HA moment was recognizing the value of the “iterate your way to success” approach. All of my academic trainings told me that a thing must be as near to perfect as possible before it sees the light of day. But the paralysis that comes with creating perfection would never allow me to get started. I have run a Chatterbox campaign and have enlisted one of my former students in a Beta course that I am delivering to her in Mongolia. I am building my email list and will launch my first product after the New Year holidays. I am so grateful to Marisa for her unwavering positivity and all the support resources that are available to me. Being able to talk with Coach Deborah and hear the advice she provided to others brought clarity to the lessons and crystallized many amorphous thoughts. I know that I will reach mission accomplished in the coming weeks.

EPM gave me a framework within which I began to organize my business and my campaign. It showed me where to start and how to think about the things that I was not familiar with. I have shed my analysis paralysis and now have a starting place and a path forward.
I now have a business model that I believe will be successful, and I know what I have to do to implement it.

I knew I wanted to use my unique gifts as an artist and a teacher to help other artists find their authentic voice so they can share their art with the world wholeheartedly—but I was stuck in thinking within the narrow confines of what I’ve already done as a university teacher. I knew I wanted to start a business, but never having done this before, I was simply floating around the internet trying to understand how to go about it.

EPM helped me understand how to create an inspiring, impactful and successful product. But I also learned the much deeper lesson that when you create something that helps people transform their lives, your life transforms too.

I’m on a mission to help artists quiet all the external noise so they can step up into their power and make art that comes from their soul. In the process, I learned how to claim my own empowerment. Moving forward, I’m eager to discover how I can serve even more deeply, so that I can help others unleash their creative gifts, and help them manifest the vision of what they want to create in the world.

How did EPM help you become successful?
By continually reinforcing a success mindset, and by giving me a comprehensive set of tools to understand how much my own success is a product of my own energy and effort.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
It's really helped me rewire my thinking about how I show up in the world. It's helped me understand my true value and how I can claim it, and how deeply serving others is the true path to creating the changes I desire in my own life.

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Um, the fact that I AM in business! (This is my first entrepreneurial adventure!)
What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
I'm excited by what I'll learn from delivering it. I know what I learn will be invaluable in helping me determine the next best steps for new products to add to my customer journey.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
But my biggest, most humongous, ginormous takeaway is that I now know that I can serve and inspire in a much more empowered and empowering way after witnessing Marisa do it with us for 10 weeks. She truly lives her message in everything she does and it's so evident in the way she shows up in the world. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to learn how to be in the world from such a beautiful, inspired and inspiring human being.
