Certified Natural Advantage® Habit coach for introverts
I support introverted solopreneurs in developing healthy habits so that have the energy to work on their goals without daily routines that feel forced or only last 2 weeks.
I'm a first generation immigrant from South America and moved to Europe at 18. After training as a molecular biologist for 10 years and trying to force my way to success - and burning out in the process - I almost quit my PhD in the final year. I felt exhausted and disconnected.
I knew I had more value to add to the world but I couldn't do it by forcing my way to success.
I decided to try something different.
I learned about my energy needs and my natural process as an introvert and, a few years later, I became a certified introvert coach.
Now, I support tired introverted solopreneurs with the Joyful and Impactful Introvert method, my signature private coaching program.
I'm the CEO of The Franker Message, co-founder of Scientific and Medical Writers Network in Benelux and host of Productive Introvert Community Podcast. I've been featured in places like Cheeky
Scientist, The Quiet and Strong podcast, IntrovertU and MarieTV.
On most days, you'll find me working in my little cabin office or puttering around my home or garden. I live in the Netherlands with my
husband and son.
I really enjoyed this process with you - it felt like everything happened organically. You’re very easy to talk with and you’ve got a big heart. Your authenticity and sincerity make it easy to open-up. And you create a safe space for sharing: I feel like I can say anything to you and share anything with you. I really feel supported by you too, a genuine interest in wanting to help me figure out something about myself that will help me.
It was a pleasure to work with you. I feel like I have a team of people around me, a soul team, and you are definitely one of those people that stands out for me in terms of support and connection and being on a similar journey as me. It's very, very lovely to work with you and to be connected with you on many different levels. If someone is facing similar obstacles, I’d tell them to speak to Mariella. You're an expert in this field and I think that's also helpful for us coaches as well. Mariella has the tools to reflect back to you what it is that you do well in life. If you want a mirror to find out your USP or unique skills, then Mariella is definitely one of the people you want to speak to.
