Turn Your Business Priorities Upside Down

Every day begins at the beach at sunrise. Today I am not at my home beach as we explore hotels once or twice a month. We do this to limit the number of weeks we travel to Lihue and Kalaheo two days in a row. The 75 minute drive, while not a big deal on […]

    The moment Marylee spoke to us on our first group coaching call, I immediately felt that here is a woman who knows where I’m coming from. Your sincerity came across in your voice and body language. You gave me the courage to believe that I could succeed in developing a program which would incorporate not just my training & experience but my personality too. You made each of us feel unique and strong and I knew you had our backs in case we started to falter in any way.

    If you are even thinking about working with a business coach, I’d say ‘Go for it!’

    You’ll definitely achieve something you really didn’t imagine could be possible. You’ll have a fantastic, caring and truly inspiring coach to work with to help you achieve your goal and more. You’ll have a coach who shows great empathy and will guide you through the rough patches. Who will celebrate with you when you start to shine and acknowledge all the hard work you’ve put in. Who will be there for you when things get tough and pull you through.

  • Coach Marylee was part of my life at a pivotal moment of transitioning from 1:1 therapy to group coaching.

    I was stuck in the “land of information overload,” trying to figure out how to complete and implement the four paid online marketing courses that promised to help me get my coaching business on the right track to thriving. With Marylee’s services came prompt access to a kind, generous and skilled coach who will empower you to do your best work!

    Marylee will work with you to find resolutions for whatever you're struggling with.  Her calm demeanor is refreshingly supportive when you feel frazzled and uncertain about what steps to take next.  For example, she quickly identified that my tendency to rely on logic was holding me back in my decision making processes. She gently suggested to “listen to my gut” which made all the difference in helping me get unstuck!

    One more thing - she’s just plain fun to work with!

    Love Marylee's very practical feet-to-the-ground approach

    Marylee’s no-nonsense and task-oriented approach helped me take my new high-impact, therapeutic programs to the right audience and successfully enroll them. I absolutely recommend Marylee and her coaching services to entrepreneurs who are working on a project - such as creating programs or launching an online program. Marylee will help you stay focused and on the right track in order to reach your desired goals.

    Marylee has a unique genius as an accountability and business coach. She is my “Ocean Whisperer” and has the gift to see and hear you as an outsider looking in and finding the hidden treasures that were buried in your soul.  I get the sense she sees the big picture of where you're going before you do!

    Marylee is very clear in setting weekly actionable goals that provide a wonderful sense of progress and accomplishment! I love seeing results in my business that have held me back these past 6 months. I would highly recommend hiring Marylee Pangman to be your “Ocean Whisperer” and accountability business coach.

  • Sue Pars, Semiretired DesignerSue Pars, Semiretired DesignerAhead of schedule with Marylee's sage coaching

    Marylee helped me take an idea, a passion, and turn it into a business that reached my first financial goal 3 months ahead of schedule. She is helping me face my fears, weaknesses, roadblocks and self-imposed obstacles with an "eat the frog" mentality that is turning them into strengths. Without Marylee as a supporting and interactive part of my business idea and passion it would still be that - an idle idea and unfulfilled passion.

    -Sue Pars, Semiretired Designer

  • It no longer worries me that I don't have everything done I need to be successful tomorrow because with her, I'm getting what I need to build towards that success.

    A clear plan that lays out what to do now, what will be done next and what is to be achieved. Knowing that a simple connected conversation with Marylee who brings a focused agenda is coming up and knowing that I can reach out with I concerns to get your feedback when I need it - all of it keeps things moving. And more than anything it thankfully keeps things simple.

    With my husband's and my busy schedules, we didn't think we had time to be medical professionals AND managers to our employees. Marylee helped direct us into being effective with our employees and receiving good responses from them, rather than them challenging us.

    Our employees have grown to respect us more as we have shown them that we are confident, effective managers, business owners and medical professionals.
