I’m a Meaningful Marketing Business Coach, International Speaker & a self-declared Business Matchmaker! I’m all about unplugging things that aren’t working anymore – including you – and working SMARTER… not harder, in all areas of your life.
I know just how transformational it can be to be guided by someone who holds similar values to you and your brand, particularly when you’re running your business empire on your own. I was, after all, guided originally by my father (a workaholic from the Netherlands who was my boss and my biggest promoter as my entrepreneurial spirit embarked on selling walnuts and second-hand goods door-to-door to raise money for my pony club, as a child. We didn’t have much, but we used what we could to make a difference in the lives of others. Maybe you can relate?
I get it. Not every business has a huge budget for a team to take care of business processes, product development, HR, marketing, networking, public relations, copywriting and finances (or walnut deliveries, right?!). You started your business to serve at your highest level and instead…you’ve become ‘Jill-Of-All-Trades. And now you’re wondering if you ever really were a ‘Master-Of-One’ – anything? You want your business to be life-giving and liberating – not stress-inducing and soul destroying. That’s why you left your 9-5, right?! And we both know, there’s no turning back!
I make it possible for ambitious female entrepreneurs who want to work smarter, not harder – by surrounding themselves with a sisterhood of supporters in business – to reach new heights of income and influence.
Through networking events, skill-sharing, partnerships, referrals and coaching, I show them how to turn more potential customers into paying clients using my powerful, Meaningful Marketing methods so that they can elevate not just their business – but all areas of their life.
Marlie is an excellent business and marketing coach, professional and responsive. She is knowledgeable, inspirational and compassionate. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Her coaching specific and tuned to the needs of each individual business/industry. In this hard time for any business owner she motivated me to look at new possibilities rather than focus on limitations of the new situation. With her help I found fresh energy to reinvent my business. Thank you Marlie
Marlie was able to connect me with people she knew I needed. Even though her services were not perfect for my need, she still wanted to help as much as she could. So friendly and helpful!
Like a big snowball in the face This might sounds hard But it’s so the opposite The 15 minute chat I had with Jolanda last week was the most empowering powerful 15 minutes I ever had in my life. Incredibly knowledgeable and understanding. Straight to the point and bang in the face. She made me do a mind 180 and I am so incredibly grateful that I found this amazing woman. If your serious about business, Do yourself a favour and reach out to this incredibly powerful woman Forever grateful With gratitude Jenny oceans
Even though Marlie wasn’t what I needed right now she was amazingly helpful in providing me with tools to help me get clear on my next steps She was surprisingly generous and extremely trustworthy despite my not engaging her! Very few coaches are happy to do that! I also loved her authenticity and intuitiveness which were both evident in only a 15 minute call.
I’m a small business owner and sInce I worked with Marlie, it changed my business in all ways (mindset, marketing, $$, connecting with people etc...). Marlie is an excellent coach. I started from scratch (alone & scared to start a business) and Marlie guided me all the way. She connected me with the right people to develop my business to next level. I’m very grateful I met her and took the decision to work with Marlie. Highly recommended.
What can I say about Marlie that will summarise how amazing she truly is..... Marlie is a fantastic business coach happy to go the extra mile for you and support you on so many levels. Marlie is not just only easy to work with, she is energetic, focused on your success and your biggest fan. Marlie opens your eyes to what needs to be done next and pushes you to get there! I can't thank her enough and can't recommend her enough to anyone that needs a business coach to soar to new heights!
I've been working with Marlie Jolanda for over 18 months now and my photography business has never been better! Marlie is absolutely wonderful to work with. She's kind, friendly, well educated and VERY well connected. I always leave our conversations super motivated and buzzing with ideas and action plans. If you're looking for a business coach definitely book in and have a chat with Marlie -- time well spent!
Over the years I have been in touch with so many different types of business coaches. None of them have even come close to the value I receive from Marlie Jolanda. She is different from the rest! Marlie takes her time with each client and tailors the approach to fit their individual needs. You can tell she genuinely cares and wants every one of her clients to succeed! She has created an amazing group of connections in her circle, so whatever you need - Marlie can get you there, then refer you on to what you need next. Absolutely amazing service. Highly recommended!
I cannot believe how much value I got out of my first 1:1 session with Marlie! She identified my needs and "the gaps" and quickly offered some amazing, creative and original solutions. Can't wait to do more with her as I know that she will help me to do amazing things with my business
