Supercharge Your Midlife Transformation so That You Can Live the Life You Truly Want

Mari’s Bio

Mari Vasan’s story is uniquely inspirational.  Her youth wasn’t an easy one and she made a promise to herself to find her way out of hardship. By the time she was 34 she was a sought-after Senior Executive on Wall Street.  Cultivating an elite team at Deutsche Bank focused on environmental programs, Mari was handling a $400 million budget for US Equity Research in North America. She was a mom and a dedicated philanthropist.

She was also burnt out.

Seeking a way out of the drudge, Mari focused her attention on science-based hypnosis practices. These days, Mari celebrates over a decade of experience working with talented women who lost their zest for life as they neared middle age, she created the “Supercharge Your Midlife Transformation” program, where she takes women from feeling stuck and exhausted, as if the best part of their life is over, to reconnecting to their magic, supercharging their confidence, and sharing their gifts, so they can make the second half of their lives even better than the first.

In response to the worldwide mental health crisis, Mari also started a nonprofit platform, www.MindGift.org, which offers free mental health tools (such as hypnosis audios) from thought leaders and top trainers in the transformation industry, to anyone, anywhere.

Forever the trailblazer, Mari is every woman’s biggest advocate and coach for finding their best selves.

Stacey’s Bio

Dubbed the “Queen of Resilience” by 7 times world surfing champion Layne Beachley, and “A Badass” by the world’s toughest man David Goggins, our guest today has not let a devastating accident that left her a quadriplegic and needing a wheelchair for life at 12 years old slow her down.

Instead she has used her life experience and personal philosophies to work with organizations such as Viacom, GM Holden and Flight Centre to help their overwhelmed leaders to be more engaged, productive and resilient so that they can grow through uncertainty and change. 

She is the author of “How To Be Resilient”, and has been featured by Financial Review, ABC radio and The Australian for her insights on resilience in the workplace.

In her spare time, you are likely to find her in the nearest patch of sunshine – with a book – recharging her solar powers.
