Marianne Strait


Mindset Mastery and
Emotional Releasing Coach


 So nice of you to drop by!

I would love to pull up a chair, pour us some coffee or tea, and hear all about you.

What are your hopes, your challenges and your dreams?  What  makes you jump out of bed in the morning? And what, if anything, would you like to change?

I’m eager to hear your story but, sadly, at this moment, all we have is my story.

So here’s a little bit about me, and about my passion in life, and about my business….


Divi Theme Examples


I’m Marianne Strait, Mindset Mastery Maestro, and former “victim” of a poor mindset. (Note “Victim” is in quotes… it’s more like I owned it and boy did it cost me!)

Who am I?

First and foremost, I identify myself as a mom.  Even though my kids are grown men now, they are my happy thoughts.  After  years of infertility and miscarriages, it’s no surprise I became “mom” first…. and I left the career path for a “job” when my kids were little. I don’t regret it at all, but it certainly shifted everything in my world.

I’ve spent a lot of time discovering who this “empty nest” Marianne is… what are my hopes and dreams?  What is my passion? I had NO CLUE who I really was at my core.  SO much of me had changed over the past 2 and a half decades, and I needed to discover who I was now. The only thing I knew, for sure, was that from this point on I wanted to help others AND control my own destiny. Because I realized that I had decades of misogyny and negativity to overcome, I began my journey by reconnecting with my own strength and power.

It took an impulse session with the founder of an emotional releasing technique to put it all together… and – as amazing as it seems – I discovered my “missing piece” in an “instant” during that call!

What I love…

I’m a self-help junkie. I love anything that provides growth or inspiration.  I love books and movies about the underdog winning, or a life transformed. I’ve done the deep dive into the law of attraction, and emotional releasing tools. I love camping, reading, and building and tweaking websites, infographics, mind maps and social media images.

What I don’t like so much…

Prejudice.  I believe we are  “human” first.  I also believe our differences are what makes life so damn interesting.

What makes me jump out of bed in the morning…

Lotsa things (as my mom would say)  Probably the biggest is the potential to help someone improve their life today.

Why am I here?

All of my life I’ve been drawn to help people overcome their limitations and self-doubt.  I laughed (because it was SO TRUE) when I took the Gene Key personality test and it told me that my mission in life was to “Change how people see themselves”.

The day I got that result I realized that this was a defining characteristic of my whole life! Even as a child I was a magnet for the outcasts. They befriended me because I instinctively saw the human being in pain. I gave them hope, encouragement and support. Yeah, even in early elementary school helping others was like oxygen to me.

In other words:


I am here to help YOU  get “unstoppable” confidence and the mindset of success
– so you can create the life – that YOU desire.

 My Qualifications:

I am certified in several “emotional releasing” techniques and in professional coaching. I have also studied dozens of other systems and techniques.

I have a thirst for knowledge, and, as a result I’ve put together a robust skill set to share with my clients. After years of focusing on emotional releasing for trauma and life events, I’m adding in all I know about mastering your mindset in other areas that you need in order to succeed.   (Areas like Time Management, Planning, Goal Setting, Money etc)

How much better would your life be if your mindset allowed you to create AND REACH your goals?


Perhaps my most important qualification


Life experience has taken me through the maze – and now that I know my own way through – I can help YOU through it!

Yeah, I am embarrassed to admit that, in spite of all I knew about helping others, I allowed myself to get lost in victim-hood!!!!

The people who drew the “box” around me were the most influential and important people in my life. I gave my power away to them and their perceptions.  Some of it was their fear of my pursuing dreams they thought would bring me too many challenges, and some of it, to be honest, had a bit of misogyny in it.

In some ways it was all a blessing.  I know how hard it is to break out of the old mindset. I know the resistance that pops up when you introduce a new mindset.  And I know the powerful shift that happens when you “get it”. Understanding this from the “clients” point of view makes me far more able to help YOU through the maze with compassion, care, and effective motivation!

How I can help you…

You’ll get rid of that feeling of “not good enough”, and, if you have it, that fear of being discovered as a “fraud” in your job or business. (You know what I mean, it’s that nagging question of “Who am I to help anyone?”. It’s a sneaky undercurrent that often accompanies  “not good enough”)

You’ll discover your strengths, you’ll explore your weaknesses. (As crazy as it sounds – your weaknesses can actually lead to a strength)

You’ll regain that feeling of being “unstoppable”.

And, most importantly, you’ll learn – and master – the mindset of success!

In the process you’ll set both business and personal goals, create action plans and take steps to achieve them. You’ll work on several skill sets, including time and project management.

Take a moment and imagine how your life would be 6 or 12 months from now you, after you had mastered the mindset of success, created the goals and taken the steps to achieve them.

The Start 2018 Right Experience

Your Program…Your Way


  • Private 1-1 Coaching
  • Customized to meet YOUR needs
  • Flexible – shifts if  your circumstances do
  • NOT a “cookie-cutter” coaching program
  • First session 2 hours long – we dive deep to create the best program for YOU
  • You determine the pace (weekly, Bi-weekly or Intense 90 Day Jumpstart)
  • Optional daily accountability for support, encouragement and motivation
  • Get  “Unstuck”
  • Build “unstoppable” confidence
  • Learn and MASTER the success mindset
  • Strategies for Time Management, Goal Setting and more
  • Special emphasis on Home/Work balance
  • Coaching program is a transforming “experience”


I recognize that each client is unique and has very specific wants and needs. That is why I rejected the “cookie cutter” coaching systems and take the time to really get to know my clients. Together we’ll customize a program to meet your unique own strengths, challenges and fears.

That’s why our first coaching session is always 2 hours long. We dive deep into your needs and the goals you have for our coaching. We’ll  discuss the techniques and tools you currently find helpful so that we can incorporate them in to our sessions – and I’ll share what’s worked for me and for other clients.

Worried you don’t have enough time for coaching?

Start 2018 Right offers a truly flexible schedule. You set the pace.

Some clients choose weekly meetings, others bi-weekly. And several want to send in daily accountability updates – to help keep them on track.  Some may even want email only coaching. The brave will opt in for my 90 Day Jumpstart Program which condenses several months of coaching in to 90 days.  It’s a huge commitment and not for everyone.

What’s covered in coaching?

As for the core program, while it is totally customized to your needs,  I have found the areas where most people benefit from 1-1 coaching include building confidence, getting “unstuck”, dealing with negativity both in themselves and their environment, and shifting to a more empowering mindset. Many need help with Time Management, Goal Setting and Prioritizing Projects. I have lots of resources to help you in all of these areas.

Coaching is the journey from where you are to where you want to be. Mindset Mastery is the bridge you must cross along the way.
