Maria Marin Profile

One of the 25 most powerful women selected by top publication People en Espanol, Maria Marin is the go-to-leader for motivation and inspiration in the Latino community.
With over 20 million dedicated readers, Maria’s insights and advice on relationships, personal growth, negotiating, and women’s issues are highly sought-out, making her one of the most influential women in Latin America.

Maria is the best-selling author of Si soy tan buena, ¿Por qué estoy soltera? (If I am so fabulous, how come I’m single?) Each week millions tune in to her syndicated radio show, Maria Marin Live, or weekly motivational TV segment on Univision’s morning show Despierta América, where she uses real life situations to help people make better decisions in their lives.

María’s personal experiences are also a source of inspiration. Her mother died of breast cancer when she was 9 years old. Her loneliness drove her to find comfort in food, and she struggled with being overweight. At the age of 15, she learned that a new battle awaited her as she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes (Type 1) and that she would depend on insulin injections for the rest of her life. Currently, she teaches people with diabetes how to cope with their condition, so that they too can enjoy a normal and healthy lifestyle. She is an honorary national spokesperson for the ADA (American Diabetes Association).

Maria Marin's Speech Descriptions

Maria Marin’s programs on building self-confidence and propelling success deliver a message of inspiration, confidence, and strength. The charismatic life coach energizes and revitalizes audiences as she outlines both common errors and best practices for getting what you want out of your professional and personal life. Drawing from her former corporate life and self-made career as Latin America’s #1 Motivating Lady, Maria shares several simple tools that you will be dying to immediately put into action to make your dreams a reality.

    The Power of Commitment & Self-Confidence

    The objective of this program is to motivate and empower you to succeed, but most importantly, to believe in themselves. Whether it is in a relationship, your career, or fulfilling your dreams, you need confidence.

    Commitment is a choice. If you are sincerely committed to achieving your dreams, there is nothing in the world that can stop you. However, you must still choose to take action and pursue what you want if you ever intend to unlock your true potential.

    Believing in yourself will give you faith in your ability to make decisions and to take control of your life. Maria will provide you with the essential steps to develop self-confidence and understand what has stopped you from making positive changes in your life.

    How to Negotiate In Business & In Life

    In this program, Maria Marín will provide you with the techniques, strategies, tactics and psychological aspects of negotiation. Negotiating principles are universal; the same concepts that apply to sellers, buyers, project managers, or legal matters also work with your boss, your partner, or your family. She will train you in the competitive aspect of negotiating and at the same time how to build the foundation for a creative win-win agreement.
