I want to congratulate Lucia, my client, a renowned therapist, who is back in Brazil after 2 months in Thailand. She was the first client crazy enough to try my “live intensive coaching” program. First she traveled the world “in my lap top” with me for a while, and when we noticed she was ready and delivering her services in a new, digital format, I invited her to leave her comfort zone and her beautiful apt in Rio, her two kids, to come spend some time working side by side with me in Thailand.

I wanted to show her some performance tools and routines that I use, how she could deliver even better services being in the other side of the world. And she accepted the challenge! And now she did it!

The Lucia that I saw in the end was even better and lighter, than that Lucia that I already admired so much. By the way, she was my first boss when I was 18 years old and it’s amazing how we have influenced each other’s professional lives for so many years.

We did the 7 day silence meditation retreat in Koh Samui island, worked from a coworking in koh panghan island, meditated and went to the gym daily, took massages, networked with other digital entrepreneurs, got new foreign clients through social media, learned to use apps and tools that reduce costs, bought her a new lap top, smartphone, and above all, observed how it all helped her deliver even better quality services to her clients without being geographically where they are.

Now she wants her 20 year old kids to come next year, to see it for themselves, to open their minds for the remote, future of work. Where everyone has the freedom to choose where they want to be.

Lucia, thank you for trusting and working with me. I learned a lot. I know I can be a pain. You were one of my highlights in 2016. Let’s fly again in 2017! Maybe Spain next time? Missing you already!

    This was a life changing experience. Being beside Mari, for so many days in a row, did boost my inspiration, my purpose and a new way of doing things. Learning can be difficult at times but it is so rewarding, putting us into a frankly courageous attitude towards life. I am so grateful for this opportunity and to Mari most of all for her generous sharing and trust!
