The Strengths Empowered Entrepreneur Interview Series

Episode Featuring:


On this episode, I’m talking with Mariana C. Ruiz, a Business Coach for mom entrepreneurs who helps them build profitable online businesses that give them the freedom of choice that they want by teaching marketing strategy to attract clients, ditch the tech overwhelm and get paying clients.

Being a high achiever is one of Mariana's top strengths. Even though Mariana's not a fan of the word "achiever", once she discovered the traits of this talent, she realized that that this is what has always helped her set big goals and then put her nose to the grindstone to get it done.

Her Futuristic, visionary talent also allows her to dream big. In fact, one of the first things she does with her clients is to set goals from a soul-centered approach. She teaches her clients to stick to their vision, but to not beat yourself up if you don't reach one of your goals, and encourages her clients to realize their value as a human no matter what. Her Focus talent allows her to both focus her own business efforts on accomplishing her goals, but also helps her clients re-focus, especially if they are suffering from shiny object syndrome. She helps moms dream big, set goals, break down that goal, and then streamline their execution to reach that goal, plus encourages them to celebrate the small wins along the way.

She talks the importance of focusing on just one main thing you need to do today instead of focusing on everything at once (#allthethings). She teaches moms how to put one foot in front of the other. We chat about some of Mariana's weaknesses as well. Her Responsibility talent made her realize she needed to set some boundaries in her business to avoid burnout and serve her clients the best. Enjoy the episode!
