August 1 – 3, 2018

Live a rich life.

This richness of living is not just meant to be all about material and financial wealth. It’s about having an authentic, vital, engagement with life using all your senses and feeling the JOY in knowing your sweet spot of genius and living there more often.

Living that way so much that you stop negotiating your truth about your own desires and dreams. They are meant for you because they evolve you; specific for your success and happiness.

Maybe it’s building a location independent, laptop lifestyle business so that you are integrating your desires for travel into your business?

Living a rich life so much that you are more often in a high frequency (vibe) as you do what you love for clients you adore; rather than be in that masculine mode 90% of the time feeling burned out and overly extended.

Living a rich life so much that you no longer stop yourself from going after that desire to build a business “on your own terms”; rather than settle for some cookie cutter hybrid of everyone else’s business.

I hit the proverbial emotional, mental and spiritual wall in March 2017 after nine transformational years in business. I came to my real truth – I could no longer live and operate like I had been.

It was time for another reinvention.

I realized it was more of HOW I was doing my coaching business; not what I was doing.

I knew it was time to live a rich life filled with inner happiness and joy in how I delivered my purpose and calling.

I could no longer do one more cookie cutter workshop or group coaching program that did not fulfill me. I served my clients very well; but I needed to feel the happiness, too.

June 2017 I hired my business/lifestyle coach to help me recover my dreams and bring the joy back into making money.

For a full afternoon, on June 1, 2017, I purged all that was holding me back from living a rich, expansive, truthful life.

It was that afternoon in beautiful Santa Barbara California I reclaimed my heart, my soul, my genius zone, dignity, dreams and desires; and planned a month-long stay in gorgeous Florence and Rome, Italy.

It was in that moment when Gina and I detailed out my 20-year dream I had been holding back on. On that day – I began the new evolution of who I would become to be the woman who lives a rich, joyful, no compromising life.

After a full month in August 2017 living in the epicenter of Renaissance, art, culture, quality living and romance, I began designing a life I loved. No more pretending. No more harried pace. No more numbing feeling throughout the day. No more ignoring my intuition. No more expectations that were not a fit for me. No more settling.

I recovered my spirit-centered life while walking the cobblestone tree-lined streets of Florence, Italy watching the romantic sunset on the famously serene Arno River framed by the world renowned Ponte Vecchio bridge. (I know…big sigh of fulfillment)

The 20-year dream was real and alive and so was I.

Sept 2017 after arriving back home I had some serious transformational work to do with my lifestyle, how I operated in my business, how I designed my programs, the rebranding of my new Renaissance woman theme, and earning money with joy and gratitude.

I had to recalibrate a new normal around my definition of work. It was not what I was doing but HOW I was doing it that changed everything.

Fast forward to now.

This 2.5-day lux retreat is one of many creations I designed from my genius zone – which is clearly my heartfelt, alive, joyful inner space that speaks to how I most want to impact your life and the world with my passion for empowering women like you who seek the same transformation!

Creative entrepreneurs seek to find that sweet spot, their Genius Zone that will enable them to produce the best work they know they are capable of.

Finding and “living in” that Genius Zone may very well be the stimulus to not only produce great work but enable us to use our creative time to the best possible effect.

Your own Genius Zone draws upon inherent strengths while providing the tools to achieve higher, more consistent results in your business!

Marla Diann, international success coach and business strategist for creatives, will train and mentor you the secrets that have enabled herself and clients to access a level of attainment which each of us is uniquely suited to achieve.

Marla will offer insights from her 30+ years of entertainment PR, talent management, entrepreneurship, personal growth, professional development, mentoring, and coaching.

She firmly believes we are and can continue to be the greatest creators of our time where we have capabilities to build cities and inspire nations, design products, innovate technology, ignite human potential, and progress our lives as long as we retool our creativity.

Creative renewal is a brilliant wake-up call woven into this training as a precursor to defining and anchoring your genius zone.

Imagine having a liberated, proven approach to better navigate creative success. Marla helps you achieve it.

In the training, she will help you find your own way there.

This is a highly curated 2.5 day retreat for women creative entrepreneurs who fit one or more of the following:

  • Are in business for a minimum of 1 – 10+ years who have tried several methods, systems and strategies on their own with minimal results or you are looking for expert guidance from the right mentor who understands your dilemma
  • Is a former or current client of Marla Diann Mentoring International
  • Has revenues of high 5-figures to multiple 6-figures or leading into 7 figures

  • Lives a mature mindset about the risk-taking it requires to run a business

  • Has a history of investing in themselves in personal development and business growth

  • Is ready to be courageous to learn to how live and work more often in their genius zone creating a more fulfilling life

  • Is seeking to raise their wealth consciousness for higher sales conversion

  • Wanting clarity in how to finally manifest their long-held desires and dreams living a laptop lifestyle business

  • Ready to upgrade their decision-making skills that produce more fulfilling results

  • Wondering if their current boundaries around money, value, worth, and self-care are working for or against you

  • Ready to do the work required to have consistent 6-figure revenues

When we partner with Universal Intelligence, it does not desire for you to struggle so hard to “figure it all out,” work umpteen hours a week, or feel like making money is the biggest mystery on the planet!

You have WAY bigger goals than getting your bills paid on time!

  • Why is living more often in your genius zone a powerful goal?
  • Common symptoms of not being in your genius zone.

  • Identifying your genius zone and how to do the BIG LEAP.
  • Nurturing your intuition and using discernment in what is truly your voice or ego.
  • Learning why money comes in when there is purpose; not necessarily a need.


Training Book: The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks

Genius Zone Premise:

Using the wisdom of the extraordinary book, The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks, we will discuss and learn to work and live more often in your genius zone.

The only place for us creatives (and most other entrepreneurs) to truly THRIVE and feel fulfilled is your Zone of Genius. It’s where you do your best work. It’s your most NATURAL place to be and the ultimate path to success and fulfillment.

As Hendricks writes, “Your Zone of Genius is the set of activities you are uniquely suited to do and they draw upon your special gifts and strengths.”

The whole premise to the teaching is creating a consciousness as to when you are preventing yourself from achieving higher more consistent success more often.

See, us well-intended humans, have a behavior that no one is exempt from. We sabotage our own happiness just when going gets good. It’s an unconscious thermostat that halts our happiness. There are degrees to which each of us does this. But we all do it on some level.

Here’s the incentive to know your genius and desire to work and live in it more often…

Imagine having a liberated, proven approach to navigating your success in anything you do. Isn’t that the million dollar question we all want the answer to?

“What made the biggest difference in my business and revenues was learning that 80% of my income will come from 20% of my clients. This was eye-opening for me! Remembering that I am “worth” what I charge for my services, due to my years of expertise. That coming from a place of service and gratitude is definitely a positive and aligns with who I am as a person, and the money follows.”

LORI ROSE, Integrative Health Coach, Rose Health Mentoring

“I had profound changes in my mindset that altered my decision-making in business. I learned how I do money is how I do everything! This permeated every portion of my life. I took better control of my “money” allowing me to take control of my life.”

BARBI WALTERS, Wedding Event Planner, Designer & Stylist, The Lynden Lane Co

“In Marla’s – What’s possible with a renewed creativity coaching – something specific stood out. “A deeper sacred relationship with your artist self; trusting your creativity more.” I spent so much time this past year spending every minute on how to improve my craft to fit industry standards, and something that we discussed during the Creative Renewal training just popped out.

Think of all the “firsts”, people who have been the first or DISRUPTERS in their industry-to think outside the box, and create something new. So that gave me courage to give myself PERMISSION, (another take away), to RUN my business creatively how I see fit, and stop looking at everything else so intensely.”

TENICE HOLMAN, Organized to the T, Professional Organizer & Home Stylist

“Reading The Big Leap with Marla’s guidance and reframing my thought process around what it means to be in my “genius zone” has led to a significant shift in how I go about my business and what I take on personally versus what I delegate to my team. I no longer feel like I have to “do-it-all” on my own and have learned to leverage my support systems”.
