When I first heard Marisa speak online, I was immediately drawn to her. I knew she was sharing information that would help me revive my healthcare training program. The message that kept floating in my head was, this is another person promoting her online business. You have been down this road before, along with a track record of money spent and nothing to show for it. I came to EPM with an established business in place that was operating manually in a technological world. But there was something about Marisa’s message that was driving me. I then started doing my due diligence on her and the EPM program. I made contact with people who had gone through her program, I listen to all the promotional videos and read the emails. I knew my business needed something and what Marisa was saying about how to present your business was my missing link.

Before EPM I did not have a system or a marketing plan, which had been holding me back and stopping my success for years. I had taught my program successfully off line for about 17 years. Entering the online world with my business was difficult and challenging because I didn’t understand the language or the process. Despite not knowing how to market online, I had a website and the right key words that allowed people to find me and enroll in my program. This is the only online promotion I did for the past 9 years, which will soon change because of EPM.

I also had a personal struggle and challenge of limited income because I didn’t know how to market online to generate students for a steady revenue. To add to that I didn’t know how to price my program to get the right students I really wanted to teach. My price was on the low end giving away too much information and resources that literately was given to students for free because I didn’t know how to price my course. Having gone through EPM I now know how to price my course and how to give information relevant to the existing training so you can expand the training to offer additional supportive course training programs for a fee. Giving less but transformational material creates your tribe, who support and promote you.

Another major problem I had in relationship to having an online business was being overwhelmed with all the shinny objects of tools and programs you need for your online business. This had been a money drainer for me in the past that caused me to be more suspicious of online programs and products that had good sales hype and didn’t produce stated results. Thanks to Don Crowther and his training I was pleased to find out that I did have most of the programs he suggested and truly appreciated the free and low cost tools you could use to get started. His suggestion of starting with the basic as you build your financial base before getting more advance tools was valuable advice. Just this training alone helped me to expand my limited self-taught internet skills into being able to operate a cost effective and efficiently running online training program.

The fact that my funds were limited and in my mind I didn’t have the funds to enroll in EPM. There was something about EPM that I needed, so I listened to the inner voice that said, “when the student is ready the teacher will appear”. Marisa was my teacher and I was ready to learn and accept the mission of earning while I learn. This was the best business decision I have made despite all my fears and anxiety. I started with a skeleton business framework and EPM put the skin on my business by giving me a workable system with resources, a promotion and marketing strategy I can identify with and feel good about in addition to being able to price my programs to create a “win-win” opportunity for everyone.

Monika Czyzewska (class of 2017)

I've just finished my first online course, when I've heard about the EPM... and it clicked :) I knew I hadn't much experience in the field of online courses, but my first course showed me that despite of how great the content is and how much can help other people there is still the missing piece causing the lost of student's motivation. I didn't know at that time what it could be but I knew I had to find it before I release another online course. Otherwise putting my effort into a course that can benefically serve only a few percenteges of students, has no sense for me.

So for me it was the best time for EPM and I'm glad I found your program at this stage of my online adventure ;)

I was in the good position because I've already had a whole list of people waiting for second edition of my course so I didn't have to do a lot of marketing - the simple information was enough :)

But I've changed alot when it comes to my programm structure, I've rethinked the whole process and added many things to create engaging experience for my students and I'm really excited about the second edition of my course. Although the name of the course and the content are the same I feel it's totally different course - a lot better! I can't wait to see how people react on that kind of experience! :)

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
1. the course creation methodology 2. marketing attitude and a model of experienced product marketing campaigns - for my next courses

How did EPM help you become successful?
After my first online course I knew there's something wrong and I didn't know what to do to fix it. Now I have a lot more clarity in this field and I believe that online courses are the way for my cooperation with others.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
I'm not sure right now... we will see :)

What has been the biggest change in your business?
After my first online experience I didn't know whether I still want to create online courses. I was demotivated. I knew by my head that it is a great opportunity and that by online courses I can help a lot of people. But my heart felt it has no sense, because many people didn't finish my first course. So it seemed like my work didn't have a lot of sense. Now I know what to do to make an online course engaging and I have a lot of ideas for next courses :)

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
I can't wait to see students' reaction and their successes :D

Patricia Lemieux (class of 2017)



I was laid off from my 9 to 5 job last September with no intention of ever going back to a regular "corporate" job again, however, I wasn't sure what I was going to do in place of that. When I saw a webinar for Experience Product Masterclass, I was intrigued. I signed up on the very last day! It was seeing Marisa and feeling her energy during that last day's pajama party that convinced me!

EPM has changed my life. My blog's niche is about finding balance and calm in the middle age so my first product idea was something that would mesh with that. When my first survey results came back with the disappointing news that no one wanted my product, I pivoted and then pivoted again and then a third time. From a retirement planning course, I pivoted into teaching and consulting on technical computing! It took almost 7 weeks to realize that I should have been playing to my Engineer strengths all along!

I found new confidence in myself and my abilities. I'm not only creating a class that has a small tribe waiting for me to launch, I have a BUSINESS! In the past 10 weeks, my confidence level has gone through the roof because I CAN DO THIS! I can build a business, I can create courses that will help people, I can market without feeling sleazy because people want to hear my message. This has been an empowering 10 weeks.

Now I've created a consulting business. Have a small business client that I love. I'm feeding my inner Engineer all the technical stuff it can handle there are more projects and business opportunities than I ever thought possible when I was laid off. I'm really excited to take my business to the next level!

I'm in control of my life, I'm confident and happy and I owe it all to Marisa and EPM!!!

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Iterating my way to awesome! I worry less now about the first draft or the first experience that I have with anything. I always felt like I'd failed if I didn't get something right on the first try and now it normal not to be perfect or to even have a good grasp. It was also good to learn that awesome doesn't need to be perfect. Iterate your way to done and fabulous rather than not done. Nothing is ever going to be completely perfect.

How did EPM help you become successful?
EPM taught me to have confidence in myself. I was laid off from my 9 to 5 job last September. I've always had a 9 to 5. So, it was a new world. I'd just started thinking about creating a class and signed up for Thinkific which offered one of Marisa's EPM webinars. I waffled until the last night and it was Marisa's pajama party that convinced me. The fact that she stayed up for us and made it so fun was the final push because she's so real and approachable. Learning to market my ideas, stretch my comfort zone, engage with people who have like values and goals has been an incredible experience. Look at me! I'm launching a business with confidence that I can make this work and I can make money and have a life free from the corporate grind!

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
EPM and the success I found here has made me way more confident in my interactions with people. It has taught me that stretching my boundaries is scary in a good way. I feel like I'm living my life instead of my life living me. I know that I can do anything I want to do with the right mindset and the right attitude. I'm free and I'm me and I'm loving it!

What has been the biggest change in your business?
The biggest change is that I HAVE A BUSINESS!! :) I had a 9 to 5 job and a blog. I was bored with the job but it paid well and I had great benefits. The blog was a creative outlet, not boring at all but wasn't paying the bills and frankly sometimes I wasn't sure what to write because the blog is Woo and after taking EPM, I've come to realize that I am SO an Engineer so I've been fighting me nature with what I thought I should be instead of what I am. Now, I've created a consulting business. Have a small business client that I love. I'm feeding my inner Engineer all the technical stuff it can handle. There are more projects and business opportunities than I ever thought possible when I was laid off. EPM was not easy but it was so amazingly worth it in terms of personal growth.

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
I'm most excited about helping people not be afraid of their computers or the technology behind them. There's so much unnecessary fear out there about the technical side of computing and the internet.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
Even if I hadn't made Mission Accomplished, I wouldn't have taken the money back guarantee. I gained SO much value from the first two modules that I felt I'd already gotten my money's worth after the first two weeks of the program.

Patricia Cove (class of 2017)




I have been trying since 2000 to find a format that would allow me to deliver essential wellness to people who desired it outside of my career job. I have tried for the last 6 years to use different modalities, at a great expense of time and money that nearly bankrupted me, but they had not resulted in any monetary returns for my efforts. As I continued to change my life with acquiring more information on functional health, I became more urgent about my need to fill the gap between the fabulous Functional Dr.'s authentic scientific and accurate information, to the people who need the information (some are suffering or will soon suffer, even though they do not know they need the information). I knew instantly that Marisa was offering me what I really needed. I renegotiated my finances and eagerly committed to Live Your Message. Before EPM, I felt like I was in jail and it broke my heart to not give this vital information to people that I knew would make a significant difference in their lives and health. After I found EPM, I gave a 3 month exit notice. EPM allowed me to begin to be able to be out there in a way that I had never accomplished before. I did struggle because of lack of time, the nature of my topic, my learning and technical challenges, my self doubt, but I persevered by repeating the steps (that I should have followed in the first place), never wanting to give up. I believe that working through my own obstacles (like following the clear directions, not skipping steps, being shy about presenting) can help me assist others to work through theirs. I am relieved to know that the course is there for me to follow for my next projects, so I can "iterate my way to awesome". I am excited that I can now visualize my business expanding as I increase my skills. I am relieved that I have made an initial monetary amount, which is allowing me to continue this learning journey and put more information out there in the next few weeks, and hopeful to affect more lives.

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
My biggest takeaway from EPM is the whole process of Living Attraction - to be aware of where the client is in their process, join them in their process (BIG - separating my need for them to get the information from their process), reflect their feelings and process back to them, ask questions about what that means for them, ask questions about what they would like different or better, offer invitations to explore if they want to consider options, suggest options, repeat.

How did EPM help you become successful?
I was able to begin to learn how to format a program in bite size digestible ways to increase the possibility of those who need the information, but have normal resistance to change, hear it as a possibility. I was introduced to how to use online media with much information to develop me to continue to learn, develop, and apply these skills. I increased my confidence, that still gets challenged, and decreasing self-doubt (in all areas).

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
I feel more confident and capable in using my new found skills in helping others (personally, and developing groups that want to help others).

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Before EPM, I was working for a Government Agency that restricted what I was allowed to say to clients, no matter what they needed (because of upper and exterior mandates - often defensive, political, system regimented, etc.). I have been trying since 2000 to look for a format to deliver essential wellness to people who desired it. I have tried for the last 6 years to use different modalities, at a great expense of time and money that nearly bankrupted me, but they had not resulted in any monetary returns for my efforts. As I continued to change my life with acquiring more information on functional health, I became more urgent about my need to fill the gap between the Functional Dr's and the people who need the information, as some are suffering or will soon suffer, even though they do not know they need the information. As I quit the job that held me back, I really need to make a living wage as well as delivering life altering information. EPM allowed me to begin to be able to be out there! I can visualize my business expanding as I increase my skills. I have made an initial monetary amount, which is allowing me to continue this learning journey and put more information out there in the next few weeks.

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
Not only can I use this valuable information for this chosen Beta topic to assist others in owning their life and their health, but on many other valuable topics that can address people's and society needs, and make enough funds for me to survive.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
I appreciate Marisa, Don, Christine, Mike, and other member’s contributions. With their words, and voices in my head, I did achieve Mission Accomplished today – even with my website not completed. I am so excited and humbled to being on this journey – with developing and growing as I go. Yesterday, I became a Chairperson for a struggling group in my community called Tapestry of Women with a mandate for intercultural interaction. I am looking forward to practicing what I am learning to support the people in this Town (and surrounding area) that I live in, plus many online. I appreciate you all from my whole heart ~ especially to you Marisa, for stepping out there and Living Your Message!, being there and being available, and for showing others how to do the same.

Patrick Johnson (class of 2017)


For over 10 years I've been serving church leaders in creating cultures of generosity. I've done big events & sold tons of resources. I also developed a successful 1:1 coaching model.

Althougth I was seeing good fruit coaching I couldn't see a way to scale all the learnings with thousands of churches IN THE RIGHT WAY. If I wrote a book I didnt' feel like leaders could execute what needed to be done. Same for big inspirational events without backend help.

EPM has solved this problem for me! With the team's help I put together The 5 Generosity Seasons Masterclass and have rolled it out in my first city...soon to be 3 more in the next 90 days. We saw a 50% conversion rate in our first city and I am projecting $50,000 in revenue across all 4 cities within the next 4 months. And these are my four beta groups where we will learn together!

What feels awesome is the opportunity to scale my knowlege using the EPM formula to get churches to mission accomplished! I have a vision for 20,000 churches going through our Masterclass. If that happens we can make a HUGE IMPACT as generosity flourishes.

One big thing I realized through EPM is how much of my challenge is in my head. Marisa teaches deep issues on how to get out of your own way and iterate your way to awesome. She models it too. Be authentic and stretch yourself! These are big takeaways for me.

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Lots of what I learned I do naturally. EPM allowed me to put a framework around it and gave me confidence.

How did EPM help you become successful?
Greatly expanded my thinking of what is possible. Watching how Marisa operates is a great model of the content in action. It also helped me to iterate to awesome as I create things - I don't have to have it all figured out.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
I'm excited about my work again. Easy to get discouraged, lose vision and passion. But I feel energy and enthusiasm to scale this great knowledge I've got to serve 20,000+ churches over the next 10 years in the right way and to create a revolution of generosity. I feel like this is possible now.

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Moving out of a 1:1 mindset to a 1:Few and 1:Many to serve more leaders, make a greater impact and get my revenue moving back in the right direction. I'm projecting close to $600K in revenue for our organization this year and I count EPM as a big reason for why we are going to make it.

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
The opportunity to scale our learnings through the 5 Generosity Seasons Masterclass. I see 20K churches being impacted in the right way in the future. Right now we are serving 15!

Is there anything else you would like to add?
What a great experience! When I watched the launch video I knew within 5 minutes that this was aligned with who I was. And I was right. Funny story. I saw the launch video after the deadline for US signups but international was still open. So I "borrowed" a friends address in Africa and registered under it. I was not going to be stopped and I'm sure glad.

I have been a super slow doer based on internal mind shift stuff. I held my first online class in feb with 3 paying people and 2 friends so I just barely made mission complete.

I just relaunched it with a mix of live and online and have 8 people- yeah!!!
- just wanted to share my celebration and offer inspiration that it can be done in different ways ( half live) and not perfect!

I had created a successful 2 & 3 Day Marriage Live Intensive Programs, but I had nothing as a more affordable digital option.

When I heard about Marisa's Experience Product Masterclass, her introductory training was incredible and I thought if her intro. videos are this good, imagine what she's got n the inside...

So I joined her Experience Product Masterclass and I created my product which I ended up delivering LIVE before the program was over and made thousands more than my initial investment.

I went from analysis paralysis to having a process to follow, from frustration to freedom, and from angst to excitement.

I knew if nothing changes then nothing will change, so I made a change and invested in Marisa's Experience Product Masterclass, and I can't wait to see what I use it to create next...

If you're on the fence, jump, the net will appear and you'll be glad you did!

When we met Marisa Murgatroyd last year, we shared our dream to have Nili deliver a TED talk. Now I feel so blessed to share with you my wife and partner Nili's TEDx talk.

Enjoy the wisdom behind the success of so many Israeli entrepreneurs using the Positive Chutzpah.

Feel free to share with your friends to make the world a better place.
