What they have to say
  • I started working with Marina almost 3 years ago and to say she changed my life is putting it mildly. When I met her I was at a crossroad. I had quit my day job and didn't know what I wanted to do next. I've been working in the whiskey industry for several years and to me it is an art form. But I was aching to have something of my own. Something built by me. Something that combined my passion for whiskey, for storytelling and art. From this was born. My company that I started three years ago and combines all of these passions in a way I could not imagined 3 years ago. Every year things evolve magically and naturally. It's so interesting how things have a way of working out. With Marina, we broke down my goals/dreams in a way that made them seem achievable. Step by step I get closer to my path of purpose. This is what sets Marina apart from other coaches. She doesn't just help you take action. She helps you take inspired action that aligns with who you are. So set up a meeting with her. And you just might learn a thing or two about yourself. She just might change your life too.

  • Marina is that motivating voice you wish you've always had in your head telling you to get it done in a way that doesn't stress you out. She's not only a great listener, but intuitively guides you in the right direction with a personalized plan-that even anxious writer artist comedian people can execute. I'm so happy to call Marina my coach and my friend. I've accomplished so much in such a short time and have never felt more balanced. Best money I've spent on myself and my work.

  • Marina has WITHOUT A DOUBT been an instrumental part in the growth of my business. She works on the blind spots that stand in the way of me reaching my full potential. No matter how complicated the issue, be it personal or professional, she provides insight that turns into measurable results. I would not be where I am without her and look forward to working with her for many years to come!

  • I have done individual and group coaching with Marina and I cannot say enough good things about working with her. She honed in on my overwhelmed state and broke my huge goals down into doable baby steps on a weekly basis and taught me to develop habits of a successful entrepreneur. She structured my days with easy to follow guides that truly WORK. She eliminates the reasons why you can't and focuses on all the reasons you can. She's a consistent source of love and a pillar of support to anyone creating a business or project. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She's the real deal, an absolute GEM!

  • “I can’t possibly recommend her highly enough!” Marina Romashko has had an indelible impact on my life. I’ve worked with other coaches — including master-certified coaches as well as former senior executives at Fortune 500 companies — and despite all of that, Marina is the first coach who I’ve truly felt connected to. She almost immediately makes you feel as though she’s on your team, as if your projects are her projects. She has perfect timing during meetings, and excellent intuition, making it so you always feel as though you are both in control and being guided. Combine all of this with a project management background and what you end up with are pure results. In less than a year we’ve overcome limitations that I struggled with for a decade, and made incredible progress on all of my ventures. I can’t possibly recommend her highly enough!

  • Sometimes while on the road to success you can get lost. You get overly consumed by life, business , family and so much more. This is exactly what happened to me. I was working very hard but felt as though I was running in circles. I reach out to a group of friends to get recommendations for a coach and 3 people recommended Marina. I reached out and instantly i was amazed! Marina helped me to sort out my company as well as my life in order to become more efficient and focused. At one of the craziest times in my life, Marina was there to help me to stay on my path to success! I know that if anyone asks me for a coach recommendation Marina is my go to girl!

  • Working with Marina to develop a volunteer program for Women’s Education Project, was a great experience. During the outlined time for our project, she helped design the WEP Ambassadors program — a team of dedicated volunteers who help WEP reach specific fundraising and social media goals. The idea pinpointed our exact needs and showed me how to get people involved and excited in joining WEP. Soon we had thirty volunteers who registered for WEP Ambassadors and signed up for Events or Social Media team, knowing exactly how they could help WEP. Marina’s tactics were specific — she was understanding and practical about reaching goals and made the project enjoyable. In the time that we worked together, she gave me the tools to keep me and my future projects on track. Even after the project, Marina is still a supporter and I feel like a permanent cheerleader for our work.

  • When we set out to accomplish big, significant, and inspiring goals in our life, I have found it’s nearly impossible to make this journey on your own. Even though we may feel in our hearts and minds that it’s possible to accomplish something. Often, in order to access new capacities in our self, we need not only a partner to reflect our ideas back to us, but an accountability structure that will hold the right amount of tension that pushes us ever so gently to unlock these deeper capacities. Marina has been and continues to be that partner with me and my work. Thank you!

  • Working with Marina gave me a chance to take a broader look at not only my business but myself. Being a small business owner and wearing so many hats, it is a challenge to get the small stuff done and keep my vision on the bigger picture but together with Marina we found a great balance and I was able to not only grow my business but take some big personal leaps. The best part of working with Marina is getting the chance to be with her. She has a knack of bringing out the best in someone and making them feel like they really can move their elephants.
