Change Agent, Advocate. Kindness. Marketing

About Mari-Lyn Harris

About Mari-Lyn Harris, being a strong advocate for change agents to inspire and empower Entrepreneurs is my thing. Creating events to learn from each other works very well.

As a compassionate leader, Change Agent also known as, change maker. By reaching out to Founders and CEO’s of  organizations and I have recently experienced myself is not having someone who will listen to me. It’s a listening circle, where other founder, Change makers and CEO’s can share their experiences and have people or myself to listen to them.

Besides offering coaching and marketing strategies to those who are starting out.. for those who are further along in their business, they will experience loneliness, which not dealt with can become a mental health challenge for them.

The discussion groups help them solve their problems when they join a listening circle.

Throughout my journey, I’ve explored various entrepreneurial ventures, from running a lemonade stand to managing a gift basket business during holidays like Christmas.

Since 1995, I’ve been coaching solo entrepreneurs and those eager to embark on their own business endeavors. Read more about Heart@Work

In collaboration with former business partner Ann Peters, we co-founded Viva Libreo Management Consultants and authored the book “Build Your Own Business.” However, it was my involvement with the “Random Acts of Kindness” group in the late ’90s that marked a significant turning point.

Looking ahead, our vision is to expand our offerings and impact. We plan to host annual in-person kindness conferences, providing an opportunity for individuals to come together, share experiences, and deepen their understanding of the transformative power of kindness. Furthermore, we are excited to establish monthly founder discussion groups, creating a space for entrepreneurs to connect, exchange insights, and navigate the challenges and triumphs of business ownership together.

Our commitment to supporting our customers goes beyond events and discussions. We offer valuable resources, such as our FREE Challenges, which present marketing solutions specially tailored for compassionate leaders. These challenges allow individuals to explore different strategies and approaches to business growth. Many participants have found immense value in these challenges and have chosen to join our membership group, Affluence Allegiance, where they receive ongoing support, resources, and continued learning.

I started HeartatWork LLC because we believe that everyone has the power to create meaningful change and contribute to the betterment of society. By providing educational services and fostering a community of like-minded individuals, we aim to empower our clients to unlock their full potential and thrive personally and professionally. Our ultimate goal is to build a compassionate and successful business community where success is measured not only by financial gain but also by the positive impact we have on others.

I  invite you to join us on this journey of personal growth, fulfillment, and making a difference. Together, we can create a world where kindness and compassion are at the forefront of business and where success is measured not only by personal achievements but also by the positive impact we have on others and the world around us.

The problem it faces

Our community consists of change makers, individuals and organizations who are dedicated to making a positive impact in the world. Th

Motivated by the group’s mission to spread kindness following a tragic event, I decided to bring the concept of kindness into workplaces. This led to the creation of Heart@Work, initially manifested through kindness-themed conferences, generously sponsored by a printing company for two consecutive years. Inspired by the positive response, I founded the Kindness Hero Awards in 2001, recognizing those who embody the spirit of kindness.

As I advocated for the transformative power of kindness through PR and speaking engagements, I encountered challenges like closing Sedona Pies due to Covid in 2019, prompting me to reassess my path. Embracing change, I produced four online conferences in 2019 and 2020, launching my podcast show, “Creating an Impactful Legacy.”

On a personal note, taking on the role of administrator for a departed friend led me to become a certified End of Life Doula. This experience, coupled with a marketing subcontract in 2022 for an SBA-contracted Leadership program rebranding, reinforced my love for working with entrepreneurs.

Eager to stay current in the evolving marketing landscape, I immersed myself in learning ClickFunnels software, prompting me to offer free monthly marketing classes. Now, I’m on the verge of launching a Marketing Summit for Change Makers, focusing on Food Makers as a sub-category.

Through these experiences, I’ve discovered my passion for inspiring and empowering entrepreneurs, creating meaningful growth experiences. My ultimate purpose is to serve fellow change makers with their marketing needs. As I continue this journey, my dedication to making a positive impact remains unwavering.
