Marije Pathuis-Wahle is a Women’s Excellence Coach at the Women’s Academy, an NLP practitioner, food coach and a personal trainer. After years of neglecting herself, feeling miserable and exhausted in an unfulfilling job, Marije decided she needed a major change in her life. And that’s what she did. She took back her power and changed her body, her wisdom, her space, her wealth and relationships. Now she helps other women unlock their excellence, reach their full potential and do their part to make the world a better place.

Marije’s core belief:

“When we empower women, we grow love. When we grow love, we create peace. When women are listening to their deeper knowing, they know what is good for humanity and the world. They access that ultimate power of creation.”

In this episode, Marije shares her journey from “a very bad place” to a thriving life, using her full potential to make a difference.
