My name is Mari Loewen, I am an entrepreneur, mother and teacher. I live with my daughter Isabella, in our dream city of Toronto Canada, steps from the famous cherry blossoms of High Park. 

I have always loved making a difference in peoples lives. It was what compelled me to launch the inspiring international food magazine ANNA (named after my mom) over 10 years ago–And the reason I am here today!

I always believed that anything is possible, it helped me overcome a divorce, single handedly raise my beautiful daughter, and launch the business of my dreams.

I played many roles at the magazine, from publisher to creative director to account manager. I worked with over 150 advertising clients and grew our sales to over 6 figures.

But then we began to feel the impact of the digital shift.

 


 
 

My business needed technology that just didn’t exist. And if it did, it was too expensive, it was too complicated and well, we just didn’t know anything about it. I mean it stopped us dead in our tracks, like a deer caught in headlights. My business fell apart, I gained 50 pounds and at one point had about $100 in my pocket.

Through a sheer will to survive I empowered myself by learning the online secrets I needed to shift my print subscribers to an online community, and ultimately transform my business and my life. I breathed, ate and slept online training.

The most important thing I learned was how to attract my readers to an online platform, and how to connect with them. I did this through a newsletter I called Monday Morning Inspiration.

Quickly my newsletter subscribers grew to over 24,000.

This only worked because I had followed the steps, and implemented the technology we needed to attract and easily convert the reader.

There they were, all 25,000 women at the other end of our email, waiting to be inspired.

 

As an entrepreneur and digital coach I am passionate about sharing the secrets I learned
to business owners everywhere!

Everywhere I look, I see business owners struggling with traditional
way of business, in fact many are near death.

 

And most push it aside like it's going to go away. They find any excuse not to look at it. I just don't have the time. I just don't want it to interfere with my business. I have so much going on right now. And some aren’t sure if it’s actually a thing. Friends, my mother is 80 and she is texting. Last week she asked for an upgrade to her iPhone because her pictures weren't sending. So please believe me when I say, the digital age is here to stay, and it's not going away.
