As you well know, this past November, our latest Easy Breezy Coaching Business Bootcamp ended.

We’re proud to present you Margarita Martin, one of our Top 10 students in this past session—the “cum laude” of the bunch who launched her businesses with our support and who is now thriving!

Margarita works with direct sales, self-employed and professionals seeking to grow in their field – folks who are HUNGRY to grow and improve.

Remember, nothing is IMPOSSIBLE! The word itself says, “I’M POSSIBLE”!!!

I am so EXCITED!! I’ve gone from National Sales Rep of the Year at Dow Jones, twice; to stay-at-home mom of four, to entrepreneur as a Life Leadership coach. And now I’m HERE! With all of you!! My journey with Melinda and Kate has been pivotal and amazing for me and my business as a coach, trainer and speaker with The John Maxwell Team.

We’ve just rung in a new year and as I do every year I’ve reflected back on the past year – what went right, what could I have done better, what where my greatest joys and my deepest let downs. I’ve always been a student of leadership – I’ve always wanted to be the best I could be and I knew that in order to get to my personal best, I needed to read and learn from the very best – one is too small of a number for greatness.

Along with welcoming the newest little member to our family (Baby Grace is 3 months old now), one of the absolutely best things I did in 2015 was become certified as a Coach, Speaker and Trainer with The John Maxwell Team. My heart has always been for bringing others up, training on the best content, sharing what has worked for me in the past and what hasn’t worked. I am a natural motivator and cheerleader. My closest friends describe me as a bundle of positive energy!

As a Certified Coach with The John Maxwell Team I deliver a strong dose of the best content on the topic of leadership on the planet. In fact, John Maxwell has written three of the top five leadership books EVER written. And I get to share that with my clients, through virtual one-on-one coaching, mastermind groups and lunch and learns.

What I have learned, both personally and from my clients, is that SELF-leadership is the absolute hardest form of leadership. One of my favorite quotes from John is this – “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” It is so very true!! How we lead ourselves is how other perceive us, how they respond to us. If you are looking to grow your business, build your sales team or make an impact on the world around you, you must first and foremost LIVE BY EXAMPLE.

Between the killer content, being a keen listener and living it, I would love to share with you some resources available on my site, Take advantage of my free gift to you, “5 Free Infographics to help you Up Your Leadership Game.” They look great printed out and I know you’ll refer back to them time and again.


Margarita Martin is an influencer that is an experienced sales person. As a mortgage broker, she survived the mortgage crisis of 2007-2008. She transitioned from this battle zone to what turned out to be an all-out Armageddon. Her new role selling a printed publication in our digital world, to a market, of all things – early adopters. Margarita was selling the Wall Street Journal for classroom use to university deans, faculty and graduate programs. Not only did she survive, she was “Sales Representative of the Year” two years in a row. Not bad for a two year deployment. And then came four babies creating a new full-time position. Survived, again, and ready to teach straight from the front line.
