Creatives...isn't it time you stop caving into discounts and stand for your worth and dignity by committing to your real rates and actually getting them?

On March 22 you and your colleagues will learn the path to least resistance by increasing your earning power through changing how you are in relationship with money.

Yes. Changing how you are in relationship with money. I know it sounds maybe odd.

Hi, I'm Marla Diann, mentor to creative women business owners. Over the years, I had found in my own life as well as most women entrepreneurs' lives that they were not taught or reared in childhood to be powerful with money.

No fault of anyone's.

When explored, our relationship with money is often dictated by doubt, fear, lack, guilt, worry and disrespect.

Again, no fault of your own.

The truth is...thousands of smart, savvy women tend to have an adversarial and disconnected relationship with money. They are not even conscious of it or better yet, even know they have a choice to change it.

The workshop will reveal the solution to this dilemma.

As a business owner, you have the ability to align an upgraded self-worth with healthy decisions and actions so you create a fulfilling, dignified relationship with money.

As a result, you and your business will thrive.

I have seen clients for 9 years increase their self-worth, dignity, confidence, revenues and even credit scores due to upgrading their relationship with money.

During ILLUMINATE: A Money Mindset Business Breakthrough Workshop we will explore the common challenges entrepreneurs experience while running their business and attempting to build their revenues and profits.

We tend to:

  • Be in judgement about money (we may ignore the blessings and tend to feel the shame, guilt, frustration, and low self-worth)
  • Ignore money (fear of knowing revenues and expenses)
  • Not take care of money (ignore bank statements and P&L statements)
  • Be in fear of money (not relate to the power of wealth)
  • Disrespect money (have an issue with paying bills?)
  • Speak negatively to ourselves and others about money most of the time

rather than:

  • Nurture it (knowing what is coming and going in our business)
  • Respect it (setting boundaries with money conversations)
  • Speak in gratitude about it (daily)
  • Bless it (daily)
  • Take care of it by staying in relationship with your numbers
  • Behave courageously (speak your truth with what you are worth rather than what you think you can get)
  • Be powerful (confident) with money management and your worth

The "rather than" column on the right reads more like a relationship with a person we care about, doesn't it? Nurture, pay attention, stay connected, bless, be courageous, speak your truth, etc.

Why should money be any different?


In the upcoming breakthrough workshop for creatives, I help women (and men) entrepreneurs identify and implement success habits that give a clear path to a higher, more consistent revenues and a respected brand without compromising your health, well-being, dignity, family or values.

The highlight of the evening is my featured panel of courageous, successful creative entrepreneur clients who will share their behind the scenes, vulnerable stories of transformation. VERY INSPIRING.
