One of my top sales secrets that shocks people to this day is: stories make the sales.

People only spend money for products, people and services they feel emotionally connected to in some way. This is why people will be loyal to one brand over another who sells almost the identical thing. This is why people will hire one human over another who both have similar qualifications, talents, and recommendations.

So if you want to stand out from the masses, you must share your unique story and those people who feel impacted by it will become raving fans, followers, and paying customers.

If I didn’t share my stories whether it be how I went from severe abuse to abundance, or how I went from 17k to a millionaire, or how I lost almost a million dollars when I was 30 all from lack of self-worth, how would I be able to greatly impact and engage all of you beautiful souls? By sharing stats, facts, and my credentials….I DON’T THINK SO.

On today’s episode Marian Bacol-Uba, TedX Speaker, International Best Selling Author and Founder of the Thriver Lifestyle will share how she turned her story into a successful business.

Years ago, Marian was a successful marketing executive, yet she still felt unfulfilled, unhappy and dealt with her PTSD and depression through alcohol and substance abuse. It wasn’t until an overdose and out-of-body, near-death experience that she finally WOKE UP! She was given a second chance and has since radically transformed her life and business through holistic health, wellness and mindset mastery.

Marian shares her inspiring “Survivor to Thriver” story globally and empowers women to stop living in survival mode and start thriving in mind, body and soul. She speaks on conscious entrepreneurship, women’s empowerment and leadership, meditation and wellness. She merges her 15+ years of marketing, event production and business development experience with her mission to create positive social impact and help elevate the collective consciousness. Marian has been featured on CBS Los Angeles, Thrive Global, Medium, Elephant Journal, Bustle, SWAAY Media, Miami Under 40 and over 35 podcasts and publications. For more info visit
