Hi, I Am Maria Ji
My education and background are in corporate leadership development, financial planning and insurance, luxury travel, neuroscience of conversations, family reconstruction therapy, holistic health. I earned a Business Management Degree in Beijing, China; I graduated from the intensive Accomplishment Coaching Coach Training Program in Seattle, Washington; and am currently a Program Coach who helps train amazing coaches and leaders.
I am committed to awakening the inner wisdom of human beings. I believe that life is too precious to wait and I focus my coaching on supporting people to create the life of their dreams, now. I partner with clients in a thought-provoking and creative way that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. By applying simple tools and co-created structures, clients generate possibilities in love, career, abundance and self-expression that leave them empowered and fulfilled.
Where My Passion Comes From
My mother was a born entrepreneur. Although orphaned at the age of 12, she was loving, courageous and independent. Unfortunately, in the early 70s in China, these qualities were not prized. She was called a bad mother and a bad wife because she was not content just staying at home cooking, cleaning and obeying her husband. She was, however, my idol.
My mom taught me that I too, have the power to create the life as I want. As a child, I blamed her for choosing work over me, for causing the division among my siblings, for being selfish. The collected hurts along the way called me forward to heal and to take full responsibility, which led me to who I am today.
The photo was taken celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday. I was, and still am present to the tremendous gratitude towards this powerful, strong, resilient women who never gave up on her dreams.
Perhaps this is why I LOVE coaching parents. It is what the parents do with their own lives would shape their children’s beliefs and future, not what they say to them. ❤
