I’m Marija – your go-to Mindset & Career Coach helping you build a sustainable & thriving career. I’m here to support you to rise in your career as a courageous leader, but without the burnout and soulless hustling. I want you to feel successful and fulfilled in your career, in whichever way YOU define it. Not by societies, metrics, but in YOUR own way.
I’m passionate about building businesses with impact and in addition to being a coach, I’m the Chief Operating Officer at Happow, a social enterprise empowering youth. I’m also a lawyer, a podcaster, dog mamma and a big dreamer.
Where it all started
My biggest inspirations are my parents, who came to Australia from Macedonia with my brothers and nothing else. They’ve instilled work ethic, resilience and courage into me. They are the reason why I deeply believe that no goal is too big to achieve.
I’ve worked as a lawyer for over five years and I pursued law with a passion for wanting to make a difference in this world. I got my dream job in a big commercial law firm and thought I’d made it, until I felt like something was missing.
A few years ago, I had a huge light bulb moment and realised working in a big corporate firm was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I decided to quit my first job as a lawyer. This was scary, but this was the first step to me saying YES to myself and my dreams and was the beginning of me getting back into the driver’s seat of my life.
I quit my job with nothing else lined up (more on this on my podcast) and so the soul searching began.
I had time to myself and that time was a blessing. I started my podcast, The Raw Pod with the intention to share my journey navigating my life and career as a young lawyer and I also signed up for my dream life coaching course at the Beautiful You life Coaching Academy.
Oh, but I didn’t quit the law all together, I got really clear and intentional about how I wanted my next role to look like and I attracted exactly what I wanted. I now work as a lawyer for a small developer company and it fits into my life and both of my businesses so well.
Fast forward… I now get to coach amazing millennial women and help them overcome self-limiting beliefs, build strong boundaries, become leaders within their career and truly thrive.
What lights me up the most is empowering women to stop playing small and to recognise their gifts. I believe that every woman deserves to have a career that she loves because a woman that is in love with her career shows up as her best self in all other areas of her life.
My purpose is to help corporate millennial women thrive, feel fulfilled, become leaders and make more money in their career.
Other than being a super driven type A woman and dreaming and creating big, I love nothing more than road trips with my boyfriend to the beach, singing at the top of our lungs and completely butchering the lyrics, snuggling up with Cardi (my adorable staffy pup) and walking to my parents house for an afternoon coffee and catch up.
Thanks for being here & I can’t wait to support you.
