Marilynn Reis Sonier

Marilynn Reis Sonier is a success coach, who helps women get out of their own way so that they can start achieving the results they’ve always wanted in their personal and professional lives. After ten years of entrepreneurial ventures, Marilynn had achieved success but lacked the freedom and fulfillment that she desired. After discovering the secret to success as taught by the master of human potential and wealth building, Bob Proctor, she opened her coaching business to help women deal with the overwhelming prospect of pursuing their professional ambitions, while caring for a family. Today, it is Marilynn’s passion to help others get clear on their goals and avoid the common pitfalls that she once faced herself. She enjoys working with individuals and small businesses to define their goals, discover what’s holding them back and make the changes that will turn their thinking into results, goals into achievements and dreams into reality. Motivated by her experience as a salon and spa owner, she has merged the science of achievement with financial, marketing, sales and customer service strategies specific to the beauty industry. Her salon mastermind program, Beyond Beauty, combines personal development coaching with a community of salon and spa owners that provides her clients an opportunity to network, strategize and ultimately achieve success, by working on their business instead of in their business.

Bron Watson

You don’t know how strong you are until you have no choice. It’s not until things go terribly wrong, and you do what needs to be done, that you realize it is possible to have success despite adversity. That there is no plan B, and all you’ve got… is you.

Like many, Bron Watson had a burning desire to strike out on her own. After the birth of her fifth son, Bron braved the entrepreneurial world and started her first business. Entrepreneurship is more than business; it is a way of life. It is believing in yourself to create something from nothing. That way of life came to a grinding halt with a diagnosis of breast cancer. The subsequent treatment of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy meant that running a business and simply living life became all but impossible.

This story provides the reader with step-by-step directions on how to overcome adversity, keep focus on the “good cells,” and find the strength to work through a challenge using the miracle of the one percent.

Bron Watson began her career in nursing in 1989, developed her passion for education and completed a Master of Professional Education and Training in 2017. During these years, Bron has maintained a dual career in marketing and nursing, resulting in a unique combination of education and entrepreneurship.

During the past seven years, Bron has provided education, support and inspiration to thousands of entrepreneurs through personal mentoring and online programs, so that they, too, can be successful and achieve their dreams. As Bron will attest, it means a change in the way life is lived, with a focus on the now. It takes living life in second gear, where results can be achieved without stress, confusion or being overwhelmed.

Read how one Aussie mum has found success despite adversity, and how you can too… one percent at a time.
