In today’s episode of the Find Calm Here Podcast, I speak with Maria Tan, an amazing speaker, and entrepreneur who I met recently in a Clubhouse room alongside fellow community builders!
She’s is a thought leader, international author, motivational speaker, and business coach who mentors “misfits” and “misunderstood geniuses.”
Maria empowers entrepreneurs across the globe to leverage their individuality, create success tailored to their lifestyle, and build an ecosystem around their values, vision, and voice.
Before coaching online, she was a cross-cultural business and communications consultant who worked with over 1000 professionals from all over the world.
Maria’s 1000+ clients range from side-hustlers to new entrepreneurs to American Ivy-league graduates to diplomats. Whether you’re just starting to consider becoming your own boss or looking to scale an established business, it’s important to focus (and re-focus) on the crucial components that set you up for success.
