I’m Mariette. A full-time working mom, a big dreamer and soon to be Life Coach obsessed with personal development and seeking to live life on her terms.
I grew up in a society where you are being told to get an education, work hard so you can get a “good” job. And for several years I did just that. I studied computing and computer networks and got a first-class degree in undergraduate and master’s degrees. I worked hard so I could get the “good” job because I believed that was all there is to life.
For several years I lived a life of mediocrity, unfulfillment and I was generally unhappy most times. Nothing seemed to be working – financially, emotionally, relationships, and I felt life was happening to me. I did what society had told me I “should” do; hence I was merely existing, struggling to survive. Desperately seeking to change my life, I stumbled upon the world of personal development.
I wanted to stop submitting to a life of mediocrity and unfulfillment, to no longer see my pain as an obstacle that holds me back from my dreams but rather to use it as a stepping stone to a greater purpose and also be able to live life on my terms.
I became obsessed with this new journey of personal development because I wanted to create a lasting change not just for myself but for my family as well and to live a purpose-driven and meaningful life.
According to a survey carried out by SK-II, half of the world’s women have given up on their dreams and are not satisfied with their current lives.
Growing up as a child, I had the dream and desire of becoming a doctor and fast forward to today, those dreams have faded away.
Most mothers put the needs of others first and they end up never doing what they really want to do until its too late.
I believe that just like a butterfly, we can fly and reach our dream life.

When a caterpillar forms into a pupa, from the outside it looks like nothing is happening, but the change is taking place in the inside. Transformation is an inside job and change is a process. You have the power and ability to direct changes in your life and create your dream life.
In February 2020, I flew from London to New York for three days to attend Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour with Michelle Obama being the celebrity speaker.
I was in awe of being in the presence of two phenomenal women and the other 15,000 people who are on the part of the transformation, seeking to create a better life for themselves. It was such an emotional and joyful day for me.
I am obsessed with helping overwhelmed moms who are struggling with gaining clarity to create their dream life, set achievable goals for themselves so they can reach their full potential, and live life on their terms. You can become more of who you were meant to be
