You know you have something special to offer this world.
This is why you’re taking massive risks:
🔥 going down the less-traveled path
💪 working your ass off to create something different
⚡ ready and willing to be your own boss
🌏 crafting your own lifestyle of freedom while still making a difference in this world.
And it really hurts when people who should be supporting you don’t understand you.
💔 Your family doesn’t “get” your choices.
😣 Your childhood buddies keep telling you to find a stable job.
😓 Your friends roll their eyes when you talk about what it is you’re creating.
So you go and find yourself a coaching or mentoring program to connect with like-minded individuals, only to feel disappointed because you and the other members are made to feel secondary to the coach or mentor, rather than having your gifts valued and respected.
You’re ready to shine, not just sit back and take notes. DUH!! 🙄
As a result you sometimes find yourself questioning, doubting, wondering…
INTRODUCING THE CEO CIRCLE
It's an exclusive community for people like you—visionary, multi-passionate, creative, non-conformist, soul-centered entrepreneurs who want to:
🟢 have a space to network and share their thoughts openly without running the risk of being ridiculed for having unconventional or “crazy” ideas
🟢 practice pitching themselves and their offers, and be supported on their entrepreneurial journey while also supporting others
🟢 get customized feedback and help with filtering their thoughts, ideas, and perspectives on branding, marketing, selling, positioning, and monetizing
🟢 be 100% authentic to their voice, their values, and their vision
Instead of being surrounded by people who -
⛔ keep you down and dim your light because they believe they know better than you
⛔ can’t seem to understand that you’d live a minimalist life than sell your soul for a high-priced check
⛔ make you question your worth and doubt what you have to offer by constantly asking you “When are you going to get it together?"
The CEO Circle is full of people who -
☑️ understand why you don’t want a traditional job and need something that speaks to your heart
☑️ will tell you “It’s not worth the money, honey” if a client is disrespecting or taking advantage of you
☑️ respect your value, see your worth, and celebrate your wins with you
I’ve been looking for a circle just like this!
It is said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.
Therefore, DISCERNMENT is key!
Choosing the right support (the right coach, the right team, the right circle, the right system) is GOLD.
Everyone wants to “be their own boss” these days.
All you need is a laptop and WiFi to get started.
But there’s a big difference between a Want-repreneur... and an Entrepreneur.
One of them believes in DIY-ing their way to success alone.
The other knows that entrepreneurship, just like life, isn’t a solo journey.
REAL Entrepreneurs “get” that their network reflects their net worth. So they make sure they surround themselves with people who share good business values and understand that -
- setting up the foundation of their business is crucial
- applying the CEO Mindset in all parts of their business is important
- having the right team can help propel their businesses forward
- and surrounding themselves with people that are on the same path, on the same frequency, can “make it or break it” for them
WHAT YOU GET INSTEAD
Monthly Roundtable Sessions
for virtual networking, where you get to contribute to conversations around business topics that are seldom talked about
Weekly Hot-Seat Q&A coaching threads
coaching threads so that you get customized feedback on the issues you are experiencing in mindset, business strategy, and day-to-day tactics

… you may feel like a total misfit, but I promise you're not alone.
As someone who’s had to defy the odds and stretch her limits over and over again, I truly believe that when you own your difference, you can make a difference.
And when you are surrounded by like-minded people who share your values, but can also offer a different perspective while respecting your voice, you become limitless.
This is the motivation behind creating THE CEO CIRCLE - a purpose-driven community for Visionaries, Creatives, Multipassionates, Non-Conformists, Entrepreneurs, and Lightworkers.
In this group, we support each other and help you avoid all the want-repreneur traps, like:
- Bingeing on Tony Robbins and other “gurus,” hoping to obtain success by osmosis
- Bouncing from haphazard strategy to haphazard strategy without a plan
- Downloading every freebie available like a “secrets & hacks” hoarder
And in case you’re wondering:
❌ No, you don’t need to keep “throwing spaghetti at the wall”… because you can create the perfect strategy for yourself.
❌ No, you don’t have to keep consuming other people’s products… because you have your own voice.
❌ No, you don’t have to keep downloading all. the. freebies… because you don’t want to waste time trying every trick in the book if they don’t align with you.
❌ And no, you don’t have to choose whether to “fit in” or to embrace who you are…
… because when you’re surrounded by people who see your value and respect what you have to offer, you’ll never forget the magic you have to offer the world!
MEET YOUR HOST
Hi I’m Maria!
While most successful Asians have taken the path of entertainment or tech, I've gone a very atypical route and created my success in business mentorship. As such, I’m all about empowering nonconformists who simply want to make a difference in this world, but do things THEIR way.
Coming from an entrepreneurial family taught me key business lessons from the age of 6, which helped me become financially independent at 18. But in my mid-twenties I was severely depressed—I felt I could die and nobody would care. Because I thought I wasn’t making a difference, I felt insignificant and like I didn’t matter.
When I realized how hard it was for so many people to own their worth and capitalize on their magic, I vowed to leverage all my years of business acumen across different industries and help those that I call “misfits” to go beyond “fitting in” and “crossing over,” to actually transcend the molds and boxes and create an empire around what brings them joy.
Today I’ve coached thousands all across the globe, and can be seen in Forbes, Entrepreneur, the Good Men Project, Huffpost, Thrive and Elephant Journal.
