About

You are a professional. You are successful.

But your life and work no longer feel inspiring and you question the meaning of it all.

You’re curious. You love to learn, to spread your wings.

You’re creative and intelligent. You feel you could do anything.

If only you knew what.
If only you could be sure you wouldn’t end up exhausted, bored, and uninspired again.
If only you could find a way to cut through the noise of all your ideas and questions.

Marjan Venema

I know how it feels — I’ve been there.

Countless times.

And let it wreak havoc on my confidence, my self-esteem, and my mood.

It led to a successful, but boring and increasingly meaningless life. I had stopped doing what I love most — learning, experimenting, trying new stuff, branching out — for the safety of a regular influx of money doing what I had been doing for much longer than was good for me.

Not any more.

It all began to shift after I attended a Taiko drumming workshop, took classes, and performed in front of hundreds, even thousands of people long before I felt ready.

Oh, I still get doubts and feel the pull of the emotional blackhole that used to take over when things got uncomfortable or a tad too challenging.

But at some point in the last ten years or so, probably in one of my darkest periods, I realized something had to change.

Fundamentally.

I gave myself permission to have fun again. To stay true to myself. To unapologetically and irrepressibly be me.

That decision started me on a journey to where I am now. And, yes, my road had many twists and turns, mountains and valleys again. But it was worth it.

I know you too can turn your life around.

You have the answers within you.
You have the power and the grit even if you think you don’t.
You have what it takes to You can design and create a life you find worth living.

I’d be honored to be your guide on the journey to make it happen.
