What Makes This Course So Special?

This isn't just another "goals" course. I'm not in the business of just helping your cross some tasks off your list.

Nope. I'm going to help you prosper your soul and I'm going to use that as the foundation to show you how to prosper in every other area in your life. As your "goals girlfriend", I'm going to keep it real and raw when it comes to helping you grow and achieve your goals. I'm a believer so I'm going to be using Biblical and ancient principles to help you first focus on your character, heal your wounded soul and then we'll get to work on your goals.

Every week during our private, Facebook chats (which will serve as your opportunity to ask me anything), we are going to discuss and learn the importance of character development and focus our topics to inspire your personal growth as a woman. Our course lectures will include everything from defeating fear to gaining clarity of success to prayers that work to strategies to help you achieve your goals to developing a winning mindset to making your vision board work for you.

This course focuses on self-improvement, personal development, faith building and achieving your goals in order to realize a purpose-driven legacy.

This is not another, boring personal development class either. I’m a fabulous and faith-filled, millennial women with tons of personality so I know your struggles girl! I teach from experience and have almost 10 years of business and personal development experience under my belt, I want you to learn from my pain so I will share stories of my journey with you too to inspire and motivate you. Trust me when I say I know the amount of tenacity, perseverance and faith it takes to do what God has called you to do.

I'm taking you on a journey. You'll receive the module which will include lectures, worksheets, motivational videos, challenges, invitations to my coaching office hours and live (private) Facebook discussions, and a private Facebook community with other women who are taking the course. You'll have lifetime access to this course so you can complete it at your own time and leisure.

Not only that but we're going to go allllll the way in goal-setting. No more excuses! I’ve created the answer to help you accomplish your personal and professional goals and now it’s up to you to decide to go hard or go home.

I’m sure that you want success but I also know that many of you may need some motivation, clarity and guidance to help you identify and achieve your dream and purpose. Or perhaps you’ve allowed fear (which loves to come disguised as being practical) to stop your from taking a chance on your dreams. Or maybe you’ve been in such a rut of routine and unfulfilled life that you don’t know how to dream anymore so you’ve decided to settle.

You were not created to just pay bills and die! I'm going to show you how to use your pain as the catalyst to birth change.

It’s time to stop surviving, accepting mediocrity. It’s time to not only dream but it’s time to create your plan to hit your mark. Maybe you want to get out debt, start a business or become an author or world-renowned speaker. Maybe you want to start an organization that fights the human trafficking of girls in India or you want to save $10,000 or you want to buy your dream home. Whatever the dream is, I want you to know that it’s possible and you can do it, yes you can.

You were created for a purpose and your life is an assignment. This is a chance for you achieve your goals, discover the mistakes that may stop you and strengthen your faith muscles.

I’ve accomplished my goals like quitting my day job to start my business, publishing my first book, creating and launching personal development and education programs, and speaking around the country by using these principles. I'm going to spill everything I've learned with you.

Course Curriculum

"Maria truly made our students break out of their shells and think in a more positive light. She encouraged the ladies to ask important questions of themselves. I believe it was necessary for the ladies to hear that they are more than their flaws. If young women can learn lessons from each other instead of experiencing tough heartbreaking situations, it stops an unnecessary cycle of pain and suffering. In turn, it allows them to become their best selves. This will undoubtedly start a new trend of success, empowerment and kindness towards ourselves and others."

-Assistant Dean, Hofstra University

"Simply put, Maria is always the most memorable person in the room. Her dedication to helping young women succeed, her drive to build the Embrace Her Legacy empire and the enthusiasm she has for executing her vision is unparalleled. Maria’s vibrant personality, warmth and transparent honesty made her a favorite speaker at The Revolution, our tri-state leadership conference for teen girls, and has made her an invaluable part of our sisterhood. As an author, women’s leadership advocate, executive producer and social entrepreneur, Maria is the perfect role model for what it looks like to walk in your purpose and build a legendary legacy. Her confidence, business savvy and desire to make a positive impact speak for themselves. I’m honored to call Maria a friend and a colleague as we work together to inspire girls to pursue their dreams."

-Lauren Curiotto, Founder & Executive Director, Finding the Fabulous Inc.

"Between the annual Live Smart Series and Fordham's Entrepreneurship Conference, I have been fortunate to hear over 250 speakers from many walks of life speak to young people. I can confidently say that out of all of them, I have never been as impacted as I have by Maria. Her presence is astounding and she truly captures the audience's attention in a way I have never seen before. She perfectly translates her work into her speaking addresses and leaves the audience inspired and motivated, with a new perspective on themselves and their potential. I can't speak highly enough of Maria and what she is doing with Embrace Her Legacy. She is a force on and off stage."

-Emily Raleigh, Spire & Co & Fordham University
