Meet Marie

Meet Marie


Marie Leslie Though I am blessed to live in the Centennial state, I was born on the east coast and raised on the west coast before finally landing in beautiful Colorado. I attended San Diego State University, where I was awarded a degree in Journalism the day before my first child was born. I’ve been married to my best friend for more than 30 years and together we’ve raised four great kids.

When I’m not busy helping others create their dream life, you’ll find me with my family exploring and photographing Colorado’s Rocky Mountains—and any other destination we can explore. I am always up for a road trip–even if I have to get on a plane to get to my road trip. And, when I need to be closer to home, you’ll find me in the kitchen trying out new recipes, and exploring cuisines and desserts from many cultures.

I am a lifelong entrepreneur, having started my first business at 13, and started my photography business during my college years. I ventured into the corporate world after college, where I worked as an editorial assistant, a textbook editor, and then spent some time in the insurance industry. Realizing the corporate life wasn’t for me, I left the land of 9 to 5, and focused my talents on building my photography business, and a freelance writing and editing career.

Make time for friends and familyAs I honed my entrepreneurial skills and built my business, I began teaching others how to start and grow businesses, how to become better organized, and how to set and achieve their life and business goals. All that has led me to my current path of personal and business coaching, while I continue to write and edit professionally. You can learn more about how we can work together here.

I love sharing what I’ve learned, and I am available to speak to your group or organization on success, organization, productivity, goal setting & achievement and entrepreneurship. Click here for more information on speaking opportunities and here to contact me.

By the way, I still love photography, and you can view and purchase my photographic art here.
