     I now see my world and experiences expanding. If there is ANYONE in need of getting ‘right’ with themselves, I wouldn’t skip a heartbeat in recommending working with Mercedes.

    “Mercedes,

    I cannot thank you enough for your wisdom and insight. I had been following you for quite some time but had never worked with you until that one moment in time. Something you wrote spoke directly to my heart.  It was as if your words had a string attached to me because in that very moment I knew you had what I needed.

    When I started working with you I was in crisis mode. I felt so completely disconnected from who I was and what I was doing in my life. It wasn’t shaping up to be anything even remotely close to what I had envisioned.

    Over the course of just a few weeks I started to reconnect with myself.  Your support and insight helped me to see myself in a different way.

    You have an arsenal of tools in your toolbox and I’m sure we didn’t even use them all, but I’m thrilled to say that the ones you taught me are now becoming an everyday practice for me. I now see my world and experiences expanding.

    I knew you had what I needed. If there is ANYONE in need of getting ‘right’ with themselves, I wouldn’t skip a heartbeat in recommending  working with you. I only speak the truth. You’re brilliant so it’s my pleasure to offer this testimonial.

    Many, many thanks.

    Iris”

    If you ever need drive and clarity to move forward in your business, no doubt, Mercedes is the one. The sessions with Mercedes were the kick-off for a new beginning . The coaching sessions were 100% useful.

    “Every aspect of our business seemed to need an extra effort and were getting no results; from hiring a service to getting new clients. We were in constant frustration and no energy left. As a last resource we decided to take some coaching sessions to spot the facts that drove us backwards, be concentrated on what is important and use all our remaining energy in order to save our project. This was our first experience with coaching and we were not even sure of what we would find, or its dynamics. But as we were lost, we trusted Mercedes could help us bring back our lost enthusiasm and focus.

    After our first one hour session we realized that the lack of clarity was present in almost every aspect of our business project. We understood it is not the same having a product than having a business plan. We had the product and Mercedes produced a guideline that allowed us to find the right direction for the product to become a business. We saw the light again and we got back our lost inspiration to move forward.

    A few weeks after the first coaching session we were able to redesign our web site, redefine our sales mechanics and make decisions that have been long left behind.

    The sessions with Mercedes were the kick-off for a new beginning. The coaching sessions were 100% useful.

    Mercedes, thank you for your feedback and support along the past months!”

    The course material is full of gold. I have been given a completely and empowering way to do my life with grace and ease! I would not hesitate in recommending this course to anyone who’s up for creating their best life possible.

    “Thank you so much for putting together and making the course Become Unlimited available to me!  It was such a great experience and I had so many “Ah Ha’s”, that I don’t even know where to begin!
    I am a personal Chef living in Malibu with amazing clients, so my life is not exactly a “Hell No!”. But there were areas of my life where I was stuck and had little or no freedom. 

    I kept on creating the same results… all over the world!  I signed up for  Become Unlimited, started doing the work and things just clicked in a way they haven’t before! I have been given a completely and empowering way to do my life with grace and ease! 

    I saw old limiting beliefs and patterns that I had in my life transform in a way I didn’t think was possible. There are tools in the course that I can use on a daily basis!

    Mercedes passionate style is loving, authentic and honest. The course material is full of gold and the online support from Mercedes and the rest of the group is so helpful.

    The course as the title says, is about creating an awesome life full of abundance on all levels. I actually got to be grateful for some “Hell No’s” in my life too!

    I’ve learned that doing the work is preparation for me to be the greatest expression of who I am in the world… and to have a blast while doing it!

    I would not hesitate in recommending this course to anyone who’s up for creating their best life possible!  As you will hear many times… Hell Yeah!

    I am so grateful that I can now create an even more awesome life”

    Mercedes is brilliant, authentic and shares her own personal struggles.

    I hired Mercedes because I was going through a difficult time, I had to cope with the loss of a relative and two family members diagnosed with forth stage cancer and my grandmother’s dementia getting worse! All these things started to accumulate and I just wanted someone to coach me through this difficult time.

    What came up for me during the session is that I didn’t realize that I had money beliefs that were blocking me from growing my business. After the session with Mercedes I felt more relaxed and less overwhelmed, I started to put in simple systems that cleared up my space and energy and allowed me to do more things with my time. I was able to avoid channeling that negative energy into my life and family and I am now back on to my competitive self.

    Right now, what’s next for me is: I am working on developing my fearless coaching program and just launched my free 14 Day Fearless Challenge.

    Mercedes is brilliant, authentic and shares her own personal struggles.”

    Since working with Mercedes, I’ve increased my business with three new clients and paradoxically, had more time to relax and have fun!  I’m experiencing WAY more “Hell Yeah” in my work.

    “I hired Mercedes for two sessions when I was looking to grow my business and was struggling to know where to start from an operations stand point. I was also facing a lot of inner resistance on working on my business even though it’s my dream – there was no “Hell Yeah” in my work.

    Mercedes is not only a incredibly inspiring woman with a warm open heart, she is also a very shrewd business woman. By working together, I increased my confidence in my plan to decrease my hours at my day job so I have more time to work on my business, and I began to understand why I didn’t have the energy to build my business. (I needed to tear down the current house before building a new one!)

    On a practical level, she showed me some business systems that have helped me to get organized, and therefore, have allowed me to have more time for fun.  She taught me the importance of setting boundaries, and how by doing that, I would actually have more to give, not less. Most importantly though, Mercedes gave me tools to develop self-love and self-acceptance, and that has made a massive difference in my life and my business.

    Since working with Mercedes, I’ve increased my business with three new clients and paradoxically, had more time to relax and have fun!  I’m experiencing WAY more “hell yeah” in my work.  I have learned how to accept myself no matter where I am in the journey to becoming the type of woman and entrepreneur I want to be.

    I quit smoking by accepting myself, and that alone will probably save my life.  I have more time for myself.  I’m made major progress towards becoming who I want to be and living my dream, and Mercedes was a key piece of the puzzle to my recent breakthroughs!”

    Become Unlimited has helped me to have a clear picture of what I want in different aspects of my life. I’ve come to know the limiting beliefs that were interfering in my way to reach my full potential and learned how to revert them into positive action steps to accomplish my dreams and goals.

    “Throughout the course I’ve learned to identify the different voices inside of me (the voice of my desires, the voice of my fears, and even the voice of my limiting beliefs) and learned valuable tools to gain acceptance of myself.
    I now feel clear of how I want my life to look like!  First stage: abundance mindset!
    I feel confident that my life can be as abundant as I want it to be. Second stage: truly believe it!
    I also have a proven, systematized set of steps and tools to put in practice. Third stage: started to take action!
    And the last one, I’ve come to realize that -in a certain degree- I was already living an abundant life.
    I feel truly grateful as I allow for the expansion and multiplication of that abundance.
    Thank you Mercedes for this beautiful course!”

    I strongly recommend anyone wanting to create holistic success, which is deeply satisfying inside, to consider hearing insights from Mercedes on her (also fun and practical) coaching calls or programs.

    “Mercedes is a talented and inspiring life coach, sharing modern wisdom from a deep place of truth inside.

    Her advice has reminded me that I need to take care of myself to be able to contribute to others and create material “success”. She has also reminded me of  the power of meditation.

    I appreciate Mercedes sharing and being there for me in very strong ways right when I needed it.  The insights she has given me feel very profound for my path.

    I strongly recommend anyone wanting to create holistic success, which is deeply satisfying inside, to consider hearing insights from Mercedes on her (also fun and practical) coaching calls or programs.

    I am now no longer just inspired by what Mercedes has created, but how she teaches us to create the contributions we wish to make.”

    From being broke and unhappy to making $200,000 in the first two years and living my dream

    “I started working with Mercedes because I was feeling empty. I was not the person I used to be, and my finances were in the worst shape ever. All my life, I’ve been an entrepreneur, specializing in the arts. I used to make good money in a nice, fun, and informal atmosphere.

    Then, without a specific reason, things began to change until one day I found myself bored, unhappy, and broke. I had no imagination, no energy, no ideas, and NO MONEY.

     Working with Mercedes has helped me reverse the situation, and I was able to create a great, challenging project that earned me $50,000 in the first year! On the second year, the profits grew up to $150,000 and from now on, the sky is the limit!

    Everyday I wake up with joy and love – and I am anxious to face the day’s challenges. I personally recommend Mercedes and will always be thankful to her for helping me to find within myself the keys to change. Above all, I now have a DREAM and I’m able to live it.”

    Alicia Eccles, Los Angeles, USA/ Success and Transformational Coach

     Mercedes is amazing at busting through limiting beliefs and getting you to a place where you can finally move forward in a much easier and fun way.

    The most transformational part of my experience with Mercedes was that I walked away after only one session with a new confidence that I COULD do this!

    “At the time I stumbled into Mercedes’ website, I had just made a firm decision to start my own business. Yet, I had no clue how to start it, or even what sort of business I wanted to start in the first place!
    Worse, I had this huge fear that somehow it was not possible for me. So I decided to contact Mercedes to see if I could learn how to change this mindset and manifest a new life as an entrepreneur.
     
     I had one terrible experience with a life coach one year before I worked with Mercedes. After that experience, I had pretty much written off coaches, but Mercedes inspired me to give it another try and I’m happy that I did. 
    The most transformational part of my experience with Mercedes was that I walked away after only one session with a new confidence that I COULD do this. I could be an entrepreneur or anything else that I desired to be.
    For the first time, I had unwavering faith that I could accomplish such a big goal. I was able to maintain motivation even after setbacks and I became more willing to be visible and step into the game. I felt very confident after working with Mercedes.
    I just launched my OWN website Dreamgirlstrategies.com where I help women create and build businesses and lives they love as a Success and Transformational Coach. I absolutely love what I do! I would tell the people in my network that Mercedes is amazing at busting through limiting beliefs and getting you to a place where you can finally move forward in a much easier and fun way.

    Dayla Soul, San Francisco/ Director of “It Ain’t Pretty”/ Taraval Films

    Mercedes was able to help me go from point A to point B with grace and love. I now enjoy my new found freedom having crashed through my own upper limits.

    “I had just begun filming a movie about women who surf the cold waters of Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

    I realized along with the producer, writer, videographer and the rest of the team, I knew I needed someone to help me privately tackle the uncertainties of my first film. There was a sense that I would only get so far before everything would stall and it would leave me feeling stuck. This had happened to me before.

    This was such a huge endeavor I decided to reach out and hire a personal coach. I chose Mercedes for two reasons. The obvious reason being that she was a professional surfer and could give me feedback on that particular subject. The second was the enthusiasm I got from her website. The “Hell Yeah” expression. I knew intuitively before I met her that she was the right coach.

    I had worked with a coach before and knew it would benefit me. Yet working with Mercedes felt different. Mercedes approached our work in a way that was vulnerable and real. By her own experiences she was able to help me go from point A to point B with grace and love.

    While I was her client I was able to capture exciting footage for the film. Out on a tour up to Oregon to film one of my subjects surfing the Nelscott Pro, I was able to meet Mercedes who was also surfing the contest. It was two of the most memorable days of my life.

    The incredible community that has been created as well as all the opportunities I have had, are all due to my weekly coaching with Mercedes and staying on track to success!

    As we end our two months I reflect on what’s next for me.  Will the film I am making be exciting and inspire young women to take on their dreams? The answer to that question will come in 2015 when it finishes and opens in film festivals. Until then I will put to use and practice all the tools Mercedes taught me, to make the best film I can and enjoy my new found freedom having crashed through my own upper limits. I am a better director for it and a better person having had Mercedes as my coach.

    Mercedes is awesome at helping you to cut through some of the clutter and fear that we face when starting a new business. She helped to eliminate a lot of that fear and put it into digestible bite sized forms that made it less daunting and scary.

    “I was thrilled with Mercedes’ High-Level Mastermind and enjoyed every minute of it. I so, so, so appreciate the time that Mercedes spent with us and everything she shared. It was invaluable. I can’t wait to start on my process and share with Mercedes all of my Ah-ha’s.

    Planning and action come naturally to me and I constantly push to get what I want, but I struggled with developing a bigger dream for my life and how to make money doing what I love, which is how Mercedes was most helpful.

    “We had a great day at the High-Level Mastermind. Planning and action come naturally to me and I constantly push to get what I want, but I struggled with developing a bigger dream for my life and how to make money doing what I love, which is how Mercedes was most helpful. 

    As a result of the vision and clarity I developed during the Mastermind, I am now working to shift from work that pays well but is often tedious to more creative work that makes me happy. Mercedes helped me navigate to this transition while sharing her positive attitude that I could do it.”

    Mercedes is very intuitive, so she got me very fast and it gave the conversation a deeper level. 

    “I decided to work with Mercedes because she is from Argentina like myself. I identified with all the ways she had to go to get to be who she is now. When we had our session she was really paying attention and listening to me. She is very intuitive, so she got me very fast and it gave the conversation a deeper level. So it was very useful for me.

    I started to open my mind and search for opportunities during our time together. I received ideas, more creativity and motivation to keep getting better. It’s like once you start to ride, you keep riding.

    I always have questions or doubts. But I take one decision at a time. Like Mercedes said, even though you make mistakes, it’s always a practice to be ready and more prepared for the next one. I love Mercedes’ approach and definitely recommend her to others! She is not cliché at all. It’s a fresher version, more honest.”

    If you are wanting to move beyond fear-based thinking and finally live an abundant and inspired life, you should absolutely work with Mercedes.

    “After working with Mercedes for one session, I knew I had to book a longer term package. I had been day dreaming of working with her for a long time, and I was so glad when I finally had the opportunity to do so.

    With her coaching, I was able to finally let go of blocks from previous work experiences that had kept me small. She also helped me access my confidence to move forward and pursue my passion. The whole time, I was made to feel loved, guided, and supported–by both her and the Universe.

    I went from feeling like I couldn’t ever make a decision about what to do with my life to believing that my gifts were here and now and ready to be used to help others today.  

    If you are wanting to move beyond fear-based thinking and finally live an abundant and inspired life, you should absolutely work with Mercedes.

    Working with her is an absolute delight and I so look forward to each time we get to talk. I can’t wait to see what is on the horizon as we continue to work together.

    Thank you, Mercedes!”

    Mercedes has saved me a lot of potential wasted time and energy. You can have everything you’ve ever wanted. Let Mercedes show you how.

    “Mercedes has an infectious passion, she taught me to follow my joy and my “Hell yeah!”… this was life altering for me as simple as it sounds, because after that, everything that I did whether it was professionally or personally became so crystal clear. Mercedes will teach you to follow your joy. She mostly taught me to get out of my own way, which was not easy!

    But it is the allowing that is difficult for most of us. When it comes to making a business decision, I now always ask, “Is this a “Hell yeah!” for me, and is it in my joy?”  If not, I don’t follow it. Mercedes has saved me a lot of potential wasted time and energy. You can have everything you’ve ever wanted. Let Mercedes show you how.”

    I would recommend Mercedes to anyone looking for a supportive coach to help guide you through business or personal decisions. She is engaged and extremely generous with her advice. She’s great!

    Prior to our coaching sessions, I was feeling overwhelmed and unsure of where to focus my energy. During our time together, I gained clarity on my priorities which was a huge relief. Through our discussions I also learned how to best use my expertise to benefit my target market.

    During and after our sessions, I felt supported, focused and energized. I realized that my mindset had much to do with my approach to my business and once I recognized this, it made a huge impact.

    Our work together came at the perfect time and it really did have a big impact on me.

    I would recommend Mercedes to anyone looking for a supportive coach to help guide you through business or personal decisions. She is engaged and extremely generous with her advice. She’s great!”

    Since working with Mercedes I’ve manifested thousands of dollars in unexpected income and I’ve manifested a romantic relationship with a man! I will be a client of Mercedes for the long-haul so I can continue to make my dreams a reality.

    “In less than 5 months after my first email exchange with Mercedes, my life is almost unrecognizable in every major area I wanted to bring more abundance to: love, money, career, spirituality, and more.  I am blown away by the amount of progress I have made with her; and these are areas that I have been working to improve for years and I’m finally seeing the results I’ve been dreaming of.

    Since working with Mercedes I’ve manifested thousands of dollars in unexpected income (can I just say that’s pretty freaking sweet!) and I’ve manifested a romantic relationship with a man who I am so spiritually in tune with that it knocks me off my feet with gratitude. I’ve also followed her principles to “live your dreams” and am in a new chapter in my life as a female entrepreneur, and am finally out of the “wanna-preneur” zone. I am no longer a wanna-be!

    After the sessions with Mercedes I felt so clear and complete.  The sessions we’ve had together were so powerful that I can live the rest of my life using her core principles, and will have a happier, richer life. Mercedes’ work is incredibly thorough and I’m addicted to her coaching and the beautiful spirit she brings to her work!
    The most life-shifting part of my experience with Mercedes has been in her ability to show me where I get in my own way. Mercedes is so in tune with recognizing the mental and emotional blocks that I create for myself, and that makes her a phenomenal coach. And the fact that she is so skilled at helping me with practical tips and best practices to stop getting in my own way ensures that I will be a client of Mercedes for the long-haul so I can continue to make my dreams a reality.

    From her coaching and guidance I’ve been taking action on living the life of my dreams, and experiencing miracles day after day on a massive scale.  Mercedes has a true gift for helping others life an abundant and dreamy life.”

    Working with Mercedes has been life altering. I look at the person I am now and I honestly don’t think I would be who I am today without my sessions with Mercedes. She came along at the right time.

    “I came across Mercedes Maidana at a time when I really needed a spiritual/soul mentor. I was involved in a serious accident a few years ago which shattered my life and impacted me both physically and cognitively. My rehabilitation has been long, frustrating and very uncertain. I had experienced a large loss and I sometimes felt as if I was floundering in a sea of disappointment, negativity and grief.

    Working with Mercedes has been life altering. Looking back on the course of our work together I am quite taken with how lacking in confidence my life had been. I look at the person I am now and I honestly don’t think I would be who I am today without my sessions with Mercedes. She came along at the right time.

    Surfing has been a passion of mine for years, particularly big wave surfing. Being able to surf again was a huge goal of my rehab. I checked out Mercedes’ website and the content really resonated with me.

    Our first session was amazing. Mercedes, having read my intake form and knowing I had cognitive and memory issues, transcribed everything we discussed and later sent me a copy so that I would remember what we discussed. I was really touched by this gesture.

    Throughout the session, Mercedes was patient and kind. She was so positive and funny. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind and she gave me constructive feedback. When she heard that I had a book idea brewing she was enthusiastic and supported my interest in the Carmel writing retreat.

    Mercedes gave me a taping of meditations to use daily. She was very invested in providing holistic guidance, particularly in being present in my life. I had spent the last 4 years in trying to deal with the accident and my past life while worrying about the future. She helped me to focus on the now, and live in the moment. I put the keys of abundance in my daily routines and immediately noticed a change. Making space, both physically and internally, featured prominently and Mercedes was very helpful in learning how and when to let go of items I didn’t really need.

    I also noticed a change in my financial situations. Mercedes introduced the concept of blessing the money. I found this to be very helpful, as giving thanks kept me grounded in the present. Being present allowed me to think clearly and map out my intentions and goals.

    One of my biggest goals was to surf again, particularly on the north shore of Oahu. I never thought I would do just that within a year of working with Mercedes.

    Mercedes encouraged me to stay positive and focus on my goals, no matter how daunting they seemed. While reading her Facebook feed, I noticed Mercedes had posted a link to a Surfing/SUP/Yoga retreat that her training partner was hosting. I looked into the retreat and signed up.

    Due to my injuries surfing was difficult but I managed to work around my limits and still have a fantastic experience. I stood up twice on my board which I am very proud of.  I met some fantastic people and I’m hoping to go again in 2014. I even got to meet Mercedes which was so amazing. She beamed with so much positivity and love which was very infectious. That night I realized that I had fulfilled one of my physical goals – to surf on the North shore in Oahu, Hawaii. When I filled out the intake form before my first session with Mercedes I wrote down my surfing goal, never expecting that I complete it during the next year.

    As I look back on my work with Mercedes I feel very fortunate to have met and worked with her. Her story is so inspirational, and her approach to living is infectious. Due to my cognitive issues I could be unreliable and difficult to get in touch with. Mercedes handled this very compassionately and dispensed feedback that was at times hard to hear. She firmly encouraged me to seize opportunities that I would never have done so on my own. She helped me conquer my many fears and helped me figure out strategies on how to tackle emotional triggers and situations as well as my fears.

    Mercedes really helped me with living my life and taking back control. She armed me with a new lens to view the world. My days are still sometimes difficult and I have a long way to go in my recovery. However I have a much more adaptable set of skills to tackle whatever life may throw at me. Thank you Mercedes!”

    Mercedes has this incredible capacity of helping you get clear and move forward with your projects

    I hit a point in my life where I finally felt free and had no idea what to do with my freedom. The biggest shift from my coaching sessions was understanding the fact that I can use my internal voices to guide me and transform me. Accepting the mental chaos of too much going on and using it to my benefit!

    One big revelation for me was realizing the great fear and negative associations that I have towards earning lots of money. Also, Mercedes taught me amazing tools (ALFA, treasure mapping, etc.) to deal with the internal dialogue and unblock my blocks. It’s incredible the power that a conversation has. It’s so much more than any lonely thinking, or reading I could do!

    Next up for me is a radical career change. Leaving a career in a corporation as an investment specialist to open a café. As standard as it sounds!

    Mercedes has this incredible capacity of helping you get clear and move forward with your projects. Crossing your vicious-spiral-going nowhere-thinking with a straight breathless line that clears it all up and allows the energy to flow and focus into the right direction.”

    Worth it’s weight in gold

    “Coaching with Mercedes has been an incredible experience. We started working together at a pretty hectic time in my life, and I seriously considered rescheduling. I am so grateful that I didn’t. Mercedes guided me through the storm with grace and kindness. She helped me refocus and reclaim my power. I ended each session with a real sense of clarity and purpose. Her coaching enabled me to hold on to a beautiful vision of what my life will be like, in a time when I could have easily crumbled. I love  all the little nuggets of wisdom that she shared with me, that I can fall back on whenever I need. The biggest thing she has given me is a reignited faith in myself and my dreams, and that is worth it’s weight in gold.”

    I felt amazing and inspired after all of my coaching sessions with Mercedes

    “Before I had my coaching sessions with Mercedes I was feeling lost and unable to move forward with the tools I knew I had and the information I can offer to so many clients. I was lacking confidence and this was because I wasn’t following my joy.

    Mercedes taught me to follow my joy everyday even with the tasks I found not so pleasing. I would play some music to lift me into feeling joyful just for being alive.

    Mercedes taught me also to think outside the square and to dream big. I am writing children’s books and Mercedes helped me to get to the core of why I want to help the kids and how much I enjoy reading to kids that are less fortunate.

    I felt amazing and inspired after all of my coaching sessions with Mercedes and I will continue to work with Mercedes to keep on track of my goals and dreams. Thank-you Mercedes you are so encouraging and a delight to work with.”

  • Alice Olson/ New England/ USA

    My session with Mercedes was fantastic! Mercedes guidance and insight totally re-ignited the joy zone for me. Reach out to her and get your own dream kick-started.

    “I decided to hire a coach following a house move and the opportunity to enjoy my horses at home again, this prompted thoughts around new projects.

    Three tangible changes I noticed after my session with Mercedes:
    -Acceptance that it is fine to just be with the present without making immediate decisions around next steps for now.
    -I have achieved a lot to be proud of in my work and life.
    -Daily life at the moment is not permanent; just preparation for my next exciting chapter. 

    As the session ended I felt very clear and content to just enjoy life in the present whilst incubating on the next chapter.

    My session with Mercedes was fantastic! Mercedes exudes immense warmth and joy whilst creating a comfortable space for exploration and dream scheming. It is clear that she cares deeply about steering you to your very own ‘Hell Yeah’ and whilst being gently encouraging, Mercedes also kept me accountable throughout the session. Mercedes guidance and insight totally re-ignited the joy zone for me, reach out to her and get your own dream kick-started.”

    “I really enjoyed brainstorming creative ideas for my biz together. It was encouraging and supportive to feel that somebody else understood what I was trying to do. Mercedes didn’t waste any time getting to the core of our work.

    Focusing on my “Hell Yeah!” every day within a week, helped me to be a more fun, energetic happy mama, partner and friend.

    “I’m a career coach and didn’t know how to market the business myself. I felt like I was treading water. I signed up to Marie Forleo’s B school online course to learn how to market a whole hearted business. I signed up for coaching with Mercedes so I could be really clear on how I spent my time.

    I’m a cheerleader for friends, family and clients. I was looking for another cheerleader in my corner. I am a coach and have had a couple of coaches over the past 10 years. I tend to intellectualize problems to solve them. I dream the big picture and sometimes get stuck there and forget to enjoy the now.

    Mercedes brings me back to the important fundamentals of remembering “What is my Hell Yeah!?” and how to make it happen right now and manifest it for the future. She is a fantastic cheerleader, I LOVE reporting in the things I have done, and the “Hell Yeah!” moments.

    Focusing on my “Hell Yeah!” every day within a week, helped me to be a more fun, energetic, happy mama, partner and friend. I am a very enthusiastic coach and by focusing on my “Hell Yeah!” – I have a lot more energy to fulfill that role as coach. Another surprising result is I feel less guilt over the choices I make.”

    Mercedes’ guidance provided the clarity and focus I needed to complete my novel, as well as the courage to start the coaching business I dreamed of.

    Mercedes is a complete rock star. I came to her with a jumbled brain, a business dream and a novel I’d all but abandoned. Her insightful suggestions and laser-focus helped me organize my thoughts and my creative impulses.

    She gave me great, practical advice for starting out as a coach and helped me develop a timeline for completing all of my projects without driving myself crazy. Best of all, she was so encouraging.

    Through working with Mercedes I went from being an exhausted and rushed person who tried to do everything right for others, to someone who is nourishing her soul and heart. 

    Working with Mercedes was a real pleasure! She speaks right from her heart and touched me with her authenticity, joyful character and honesty. Her clear advice and tips helped me to feel better immediately. My biggest problem at that time of coaching was that I wasn’t able to set boundaries and put myself first.

    Now I can determine what I do with my time, I do not need to feel guilty if I’m not able to help my family or friends. As Mercedes shared with me her approach, I felt better because I know I’m not alone and what I’m going through is normal.

    Through working with Mercedes I went from being an exhausted and rushed person who tried to do everything right for others, to someone who is nourishing her soul and heart. I feel more joy and power within myself now, thank you so much!

    I feel liberated and excited to get started!

    “Before my coaching sessions with Mercedes I had an idea of where I was going but I was feeling stressed about getting everything started, confused as to what direction to take and unsure how to pull all my different ideas together. Through my coaching with Mercedes I was able to gain clarity, see which steps to take next and fully get that I don’t have to know exactly where this is going to go right now, I just have to start and the way will unfold. She taught me to trust my ideas and run with them. Mercedes also made it clear to me that my ideas can fit together under one brand.

    The absolute best part about working with Mercedes for me was that I realised that I was so caught up in starting this business that I wasn’t allowing myself time for any fun or feeling free in life, which completely goes against who I am! Mercedes helped me get everything in perspective and understand that following my many passions will develop the business and not take away from it.

    I feel liberated and excited to get started!
    Thank you Mercedes!”

  • Linda Payne, Seattle, USA

    Mercedes really helped me with some great ideas and strategies. The sessions always exceeded my expectations.

    “I’ve started coaching with Mercedes because I was feeling depressed, powerless and hopeless about my situation in my personal life. Since we started our sessions together I realized that I was holding onto some faulty beliefs, and I have opened my eyes up to a lot of new possibilities that I didn’t see as options before.

    After the sessions with Mercedes I always felt really good. I had a great time (even though I cried a bit), I had some good laughs too, and I now feel very content. I really did have fun, which is something I needed.

    I now have a plan to work towards my personal growth.  Every day I’ll think about “what do I really want?” and will follow and honor what I need in order to be happy.

    Mercedes really helped me with some great ideas and strategies. The sessions always exceeded my expectations.”

    Jobs started coming my way, a relationship developed, I manifested a free trip to Europe and money started growing in my bank account.

    “Mercedes has a vibrant and compassionate energy that envelopes you from the moment you meet her. She genuinely wants you to succeed, to realize your dreams, manifest your heart’s desires. From the moment we met, I felt at ease and was able to be vulnerable with her, simply due to her open and loving nature.
    She is deeply connected to the laws of abundance, and has a wealth of knowledge and guidance to impart.
    The beautiful thing about Mercedes is that she listens, with all of her heart, to me. And as she learns what I want and need…what I am seeking…she has the wisdom to give me the tools I need to move toward my dreams. And they aren’t unattainable goals or “tasks” that she gives – everything that I do with Mercedes is fully within my abilities.
    She taught me how the power of my thoughts will lead me in whatever direction I choose. She helped me make a treasure map and we both watched as the items unfolded: Jobs started coming my way without me seeking them, a relationship developed, I manifested a free trip to Europe, money started growing in my bank account, and my meditations were taken to a new level as I moved through each lesson.
    The methods I learned from Mercedes have changed my life. I am so excited for the future and continuing to live this new life of abundance because now I see how powerful I am when it comes to manifesting!”

    After our sessions, I felt ‘on a high’ and as if I had gained the tools I needed to keep on my path

    Before our sessions, I was feeling quite overwhelmed, and hesitant as to the way forward in relation to establishing my own business.  Working with Mercedes gave me the clarity I needed to move forward, and, very importantly – knowing I was moving forward in the right direction.   Mercedes helped me find the answers inside of myself.

    After our sessions, I felt ‘on a high’ and as if I had gained the tools I needed to keep on my path.  I would highly recommend Mercedes to anyone who wants to feel the spiritual ‘knowing’ that the answers to all our questions are inside and that we simply need the ‘right’ person to help bring them out.

    Mercedes is the matchmaker between me and the Universe!

    “Before I started working with Mercedes, I knew I had the foundation to a create business but didn’t know how to get to the next level. I was frustrated and felt anxious about where my next client would come from. By implementing the strategies and principles that Mercedes taught me, I instantly felt lighter and excited about what I could call into my life. And oh man does it work! With two weeks of our first session, I was writing letters to the Universe in my journal and they were being delivered the very next day!
    I think of Mercedes as being the matchmaker between me and the Universe! She’s taught me how to bring more joy into my life and business and how to get into the place where magic happens.
    Mercedes is a true inspiration. She talks the talk AND walks the walk. If you want to feel magic, abundance and joy every single day, then bring Mercedes into your life.”

    “Mercedes has a true gift. Just being around her you feel her enthusiasm and love which opens you up to possibilities beyond your wildest dreams.
    She doesn’t just put you on the ride of your life, but gives you the tools to ride it with success!
    Through Mercedes, I learned to acknowledge and own my “Hell Yeah!” and take action to do what I love. Everyday I feel myself expanding more and more into joy and abundance. Her wisdom, tools and big heart helped me to implement my gifts, my Hell Yeah, with joy, enthusiasm and clarity!

    With Mercedes’s help, I’ve manifested the home of my dreams

    “I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. I never thought that the manifesting techniques that Mercedes teaches could really have an impact in my life. Little did I know that my life was about to change.

    Since I started doing the coaching sessions with Mercedes, in a matter of three months, I’ve manifested the home of my dreams, that seemed impossible for me at the time.

    The tools Mercedes shared with me were easy, simple and unlocked an array of possibilities. Don’t miss your chance to work with Mercedes!”

    Life is now ‘HELL YEAH’ and not ‘Meh.. okay’ and that’s all thanks to Mercedes

    “Before working with Mercedes, I had no idea how to make my plans for my business come to life. It was like I was going in endless circles.
    I signed up for a Discovery Session as soon as I found her website. What first drew me to her was that she was a multi-passionate entrepreneur (just like me!) and I found it so awesome that she was a pro surfer! I knew this woman would understand what it’s like to have so many different passions while working on a business as well.

    In our Discovery Session Mercedes spent 15 minutes on the phone with me talking about the things I want to learn and how she can help. She made me feel excited yet comfortable with her. She was so genuine and understanding. It was her VIBRANT personality that had me hooked! I signed up for two sessions then and there!

    My first session with Mercedes flew by in what felt like seconds, but, from that I had the recipe for starting my coaching practice as well as some incredible exercises and tools to use to help manifest more abundance within my business. I spent two weeks applying her methods and by our next session I had 5 clients!

    The second session was even better, this time we went inwards. Mercedes taught me techniques that I now use every day to help deal with my deep-set beliefs and thoughts (cause let’s be honest, those thoughts love to pop up at the most inconvenient times!). Those techniques have already started transforming my life into an incredibly abundant experience.

    Words can’t express how much she has helped me, I could write for days! Life is now ‘HELL YEAH’ and not ‘Meh.. okay’ and that’s all thanks to Mercedes. Don’t miss out on the opportunity for manifesting abundance when you have this incredible cheerleader on your team. You seriously will NOT regret it!”

    Mercedes reminded me to bring joy to my business on a day to day basis

    “I decided to book a session with Mercedes because she exudes abundance and fun. These are two qualities often lacking in business for many people. I wanted to bask in the sunshine (even if only for one hour) with this stellar business woman. I recently launched my small biz consulting practice and even though I have years of experience in business, it always requires a good amount of energy to birth a new business to life…I was hoping Mercedes could share some manifestation secrets to get my biz kickin’ into high-gear sooner than later.

    Our session wasn’t at all what I thought it would be. Mercedes was very thorough and I could tell she had even taken the time to review my notes and my business before we met (very helpful so that we could dive into the process more quickly). She gave me awesome pointers for my site and tips to help me attract more people using the great reviews resources I hadn’t tapped into.

    In a bigger picture Mercedes reminded me to bring joy to my business on a day to day basis. Building a business (while hard) doesn’t have to be joyless…she reminded me to connect with that joy. After our session together I found myself connected to my “larger” creative source and I had some great ideas come to me surrounding an offering that previous to our session was just stagnating in my head.

    I highly recommend a session with Mercedes (even if all you can make happen right now is one session).”

    I was able to release old patterns, attract incredible opportunities into my life and learn to accept all parts of myself in the loving way that Mercedes coaches

    “Mercedes has incredible insight, an amazing ability to empathize, give clear guidance and practical steps and advice to remove and release the blockages that I personally experienced and to move my thoughts, life and experience to a whole new level of abundance.
    Mercedes is a very intuitive coach, offers powerful advice that is also practical and most importantly – it actually works. A lot of people talk about these topics in a way that does not produce real results, but after working with Mercedes for a few short weeks the changes in my life were incredible.

    I was able to release old patterns, attract incredible opportunities into my life and learn to accept all parts of myself in the loving way that Mercedes coaches.
    I would highly recommend Mercedes for anyone who is facing energy blocks to their abundance, is stuck in old belief patterns that are painful and frustrating and that wants to shift gears into a higher consciousness and increased self love.
    Mercedes is an incredibly deep and powerful soul.”

    After the session with Mercedes, I’ve manifested a free ticket to Europe when I most wanted to go!
    Mercedes taught me to bring the loving into all aspects of my life and miracles started to unfold before my eyes.
    Relationships started to heal effortlessly, it’s been a blessing.

    The tools that Mercedes shares are powerful and they bring results

    “Mercedes made me take a deep look at my relationship with money and abundance.
    She helped me to point out the patterns that were stopping me from enjoying abundance in my life.
    We can think and strategize from our minds as much as we want, but without a deeper level of connection into our souls, we won’t be able to bring real change into our lives. Mercedes humanity, emotion and passion, made all the difference in the world. She went past the mental level into a inner place where my wisdom resides.
    The tools that Mercedes shares are powerful and they bring results. It is up to us to apply them daily and to follow up with the home works that she provides, in order to shift our consciousness into a new belief system. You have to do the work, and you have to make it work! But remember, it is fun work!”

    Mercedes challenges you to think in a whole new realm of possibilities because she herself has done the unthinkable

    “I consider myself lucky to have spent the past 15 years of my career working with and getting advice from top global thinkers, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, global leaders of NGOs and some of the most credible voices of leadership in our world.  Though I appreciated all that I learned along the way from my mentors, their insights cannot compare to the wisdom and life experience manifested by a big wave surfer like Mercedes.
    To me, someone like Mercedes challenges you to think in a whole new realm of possibilities because she herself has done the unthinkable. To be able to connect and be in her resonance is a powerful experience.

    After just one call with Mercedes, I not only believed anything was possible, but I left with some clear tangible ideas that helped me develop insights and clarity for how to go about manifesting my dream for myself and for the greater good.  She even gave me little tips on how to improve my blog writings overnight, and how to strategically think about repositioning some of my talents and skills so that I could monetize them and support myself towards living my dream.

    My next blog was consequently touted by my readers as “the best one I had written yet.” To read it, click here.
    Her open sharing and developing ways to help others on their path through her experience as a surfer, entrepreneur, global traveler and coach was a real gift.”

    For the first time in my life, I stopped judging myself

    “The Skype session with Mercedes was such a deep meaningful experience, I am so grateful to have had.
    It was a syncronistic event, one of those moments where your whole life makes sense in one second, when you say: This was meant to happen. I am so grateful for that!
    Mercedes gave me so much love manifested in practical wisdom tips to apply in my daily life in order to manifest the abundant purposeful life that I meant to be living!!!
    One of the most important things that I learned with her, is how to accept all aspects of my life, the good and the bad, light and darkness, which made me feel whole and complete. I learned how to make my life a spiritual adventure in every single second not only the best times.  For the first time in my life, I stopped judging myself, which is a new feeling in me and no one could ever make me feel like this before.
    Thank you Mercedes!! for all the wisdom , love and laughter that you gave me in just one Skype session.
    My heart felt so much joy every time I remember our session. It was such a nurturing experience!

    With all my joyful heart, thank you so much.”

    Mercedes identified so quickly what I needed to open into and bring to my awareness to, so I was able to move forward. It was shocking to me quickly she knew what I was so desperately trying to figure out. It was crazy how clear and complete I felt by just one session.

    I felt like I was stuck in taking my life goals/dreams to the next level. I was in need of a coach who could identify the growth that I was being called to in getting unstuck. I needed further guidance as I was having a hard time on my own seeing what I needed to learn.

    Mercedes identified so quickly what I needed to open into and bring to my awareness so I was able to move forward. It was shocking to me how quickly she knew what I was so desperately trying to figure out.

    I experienced instant manifesting and clear tests to move me forward in my new awareness so that I was able to quickly master my new found gifts. It was crazy how clear and complete I felt by just one session.

    My situation is a bit different as its very opposite of most. I have been an achiever my whole life so now I am learning how to live in abundance just because…the gift of no goals and learning to enjoy play and knowing that I am supported financially in this gift. I celebrate everything and get paid the big bucks just because.”

    Steve Barilotti, California, USA/ Writer, Filmmaker and Editor At Large, Surfer Magazine

    I would encourage anyone who wants to jump start their life to the next level to check out Mercedes message and methods

    “I first met Mercedes “Meti” Maidana nearly 10 years ago when she called me out of the blue long-distance from Argentina to tell me how stoked and inspired she was by an article I’d written for Surfer Magazine. The article was about how I’d been inspired to become a traveling surf journalist by an early 60s photo of Surfer Magazine’s founder John Severson editing the magazine on a picnic table at the beach just after his morning surf. The theme was “putting yourself in the picture”, which I guess is another way of describing the miracle of visualization.

    Meti, at age 22, was just learning to surf and was absolutely stoked, primed for a radical life change and adventure. I gave her some tips, wished her luck and figured I’d never hear from her again. But I did…from Costa Rica, Brazil, Bali, Mexico, Australia…all the great surfing destinations. She was doing it! A few years went by and we kept in touch.

    After moving to Hawaii Meti told me she wanted to ride big waves. Again, I wished her luck but didn’t think much would come of her quest as she was starting too late. She’s also pretty small. And a woman in a very tight, male-dominated arena of surfing that can literally be life or death. But the next surprise was a couple years later was a photo she sent of herself dropping into a huge wave at Waimea. Then another one of her being towed in at El Buey in Chile. And then being nominated twice for the women’s division of the XXL Big Wave award.  Media coverage and sponsorship with major surf companies followed. Wow! I was so proud of her. Not that I had anything to with her success but that how she went for her dreams and put herself in the picture. But through this journey she’s remained the same person who called me from Argentina…committed, passionate, funny, smart, grateful and giving.

    On a recent trip to Oahu I stayed with her and husband Gregg and told her about the struggles I’d been having dealing with old patterns holding me back from moving ahead with my career and relationships. We talked all afternoon and she shared with me her life-coaching techniques. I took notes…lots of notes. Her advice was simple, sensible and profound. Again, I’m amazed by this small, powerful woman. The student had become the teacher…the inspiration, the inspired. I would encourage anyone who wants to jump start their life to the next level to check out Mercedes message and methods. She walks her talk…because there’s no arguing with a 20’ foot wave stacking on the horizon. There’s only doing.

    I was very impressed by the new concepts that she introduced into my life about being able to manifest our dreams with our actions and intentions.

    “I went to listen to Mercedes because I first heard her on a radio interview. I felt I would be finding something different. The moment she walked in, with her everlasting smile, I said to myself, “Right place, right time and lots of insightful work to do after I leave”.
     
    I was very impressed by the new concepts that she introduced into my life about being able to manifest our dreams with our actions and intentions.

    After the presentation was over I greeted Mercedes and she gave me very helpful tips.

    That cold July morning I was able to bring home some useful tools. Mercedes sends great tips on internet too. Now I feel I want to achieve new stuff and outdo myself in the ones I am already working on so that I receive more Abundance.

    If I feel good everything around me will get better too. For many more Hell Yeah’s!!!”

She speaks from a loving, passion-filled heart.  To say that I walked away from her presentation feeling inspired would be an understatement.

    I walked away from her talk feeling uplifted, feeling that all was possible

    “Mercedes got up in front of the room and shared from her heart about her journey, about her dreams, her fears and how she was able to create this amazing life she has! Her vulnerability was very inspiring when she talked about some of the big waves and that it was OK to be afraid sometimes, because she did not give up. She also shared how she manifest working with Patagonia – incredible! She is bubbly, enthusiastic, magnetic and fierce! I walked away from that talk feeling uplifted, feeling that all was possible. Lots of fun!”

    As an event organizer, I couldn’t ask for more.  Mercedes delivers and the audience loves her

    “It was an honor to have been a part of witnessing Mercedes speak in front of so many people.  Days after the event, we kept commenting on how powerful her talk was.  Everybody present at the talk was touched on some level.

    Mercedes made a strong impact in people’s lives. She left her heart on the stage and everybody felt it.  She put the same energy that is required to tackle a huge wave, into communicating with the audience.  The only difference is that instead of being faced with a mass of water, she was faced with hundreds of people that have feelings.  I will take a big wave any day of the week! As an event organizer, I couldn’t ask for more.  Mercedes delivers and the audience loves her.”
