I’m Marianela, certified coach, activist, business developer, traveler, nature lover, originally from Montevideo and also a little bit of all the cities I lived.
Everything I do and everything I have done is because of passion.
I studied diplomacy, because I wanted – with all my heart- to travel. At the end work didn’t make me travel, so I did it on my own. I left Uruguay for Chile where I started working as a corporate business developer and then also because of passion, I left Chile for Spain. The countries that followed where Australia, Switzerland and France, where I live now.
When still living in Switzerland something personal happened that turned my world upside down and after one year of exploration, I took the decision to work independently. My professional change was the consequence of many reasons, personal and professional, but mainly because my work didn’t make sense for me and I needed to feel passion at work.
I had been an activist in the topic of gender equality for a long time and I felt that I wanted to contribute in a more direct way, with my work. So I decided to combine my knowledge in business with personal development to help women advance faster and better their businesses and careers.
My motivation today remains the same: to reveal the leadership that I know very woman has, so they can be where they want and have what they deserve.
Even though the term Coaching can be confusing and not everyone will understand what it means, I can honestly say that Coaching and personal developments tools changed my life as it has guided me to a profound and continuous personal growth.
And according to my own experience when facing challenges, the questioning proposed by coaching, can give new perspectives, can open conversations and doors and can help a person advance to an extent she didn’t even imagine.
Advancing women leadership
I have been interested in the topic of gender equality before I knew it was called like this. I experienced and witnessed so many unfair situations concerning women rights in every single city I lived, that I can’t think or feel otherwise.
I constantly wonder when will be the day when I can see at least the same amount of women than men in leadership positions, both in politics and in the private sector. I want to live in a world where I feel represented. It is time for women to take space, to make their voices heard, to participate in decisions that shape the world and to participate in making this planet good for itself.
If you want to change something or to pursue a dream or a project, please do it without thinking about your age. The time is always right when the desire exists and if you wait, you can wait forever.
Live according to your desires and not according to what others expect from you.
Make your happiness a priority
Pursue your financial freedom.
Get out of your confort zone
Look for help when you need it, it means you are courageous
