    Mari, this was an amazing video! Thank you so much for sharing. You inspire me as I recently lost my brick and mortar business. It has been hard but I believe also everything happens for a reason. You are an amazing person I will continue to follow you. You have been my inspiration! Love You!

    You have the courage that attracts those that you want to have in your life. Through example, you remind us all of the paramount importance inner balance and okayness with one's self has as we go thru life's journey. I salute you for always acting in integrity and not compromising your soul's values. Isn't that what LOVE is all about? – This community you have created through ISMA also feels like family, and it is a huge accomplishment.

    As another door opens for you, it also opens for us. I love that you and Esperanza are partnering up on such exciting concept of Conscious Social Media. I truly can't wait to hear the details on that one.

    Gracias Mari for this candid conversation, after all, it all stays in the family, right? 🙂

    Dear Mari;
    I have been a supporter and student since we first met at Ali Brown's OSBW in 11/08, and I have learned so much from your teachings! I congratulate you on your courage to go forward, and send best wishes and support to you and Esperanza in your new venture…
    Love and Blessings!

    Mari, The beauty of who you are, among many things, is that you are very flexible and able to shift gears to “change” when others just feel trapped or stuck to stay in that same spot unhappy. You travelled down many roads and more to come. At least you know when to drive down another road. Life is a journey and you are living proof your journey continues to inspire all who love and admire you and your “realness.” Be true to yourself is surely vital. Your greatness reminds me of the website I am building right now: (don't peak–nothing showing yet). You are living proof of those words (domain). Best to you in every step you walk or run through–it's your journey! Congratulations!
