Mary Jo Rathgeb's successful 30-year career in media marketing saw her at companies like Playboy and Disney, but always knew it wasn’t where she would stay. Mary Jo focused on her career while transferring her skills, leveraging her strengths, and finding ways to contribute and add value. 

 

When Mary Jo’s husband passed away in his early 40s, she found herself at a pivotal point in her career. She wanted to help people through significant life transitions and events – even death. 
 

Today, Mary Jo is a 5x contributing author, speaker, and coach who helps people learn to accept and value themselves – the good, the bad, and the ugly – so they are free to be who they are -- not someone they think they are supposed to be.

 

While I was going through my coach training, Mary Jo Rathgeb was my success coach. I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for her thoughtful and intuitive coaching. You’ll hear our story as well.
