Lee Mariano

How to Color Outside the Lines and Live Your Best Life with Lee Mariano

Who are you? Sometimes it doesn’t seem very easy to answer this question, does it? Around someone you know well ... the mask drops, the persona fades. You become more real, more authentic. Sometimes. Even around people you know, it can be hard to let go. Or, you might not even be sure who you are anymore.

If this sounds familiar, then it’s time for a journey into the world of you. Join Lee Mariano for a powerful discussion to help you take immediate steps to change the way you show up to yourself and the world around you. 

Lee Mariano is an author, speaker, business guru, and CEO and founder of Alexidom Coaching; a multifaceted coaching specialty centered around helping clients increase their self-confidence, reclaim their personal power, and rediscover their identity, so that they can successfully achieve their goals; and attain the life they desire most.
