Story
Tagline
I am an ordinary woman. I thought that my life's purpose was to inspire women to find, nurture and speak clearly their intuitive and wise voices, until I realized that by focusing on helping others I was missing the point... that the only reason I'm alive is to outrageously be me, fearless and joyful. In order to embody this realization, I had to muster the courage to live beyond my culture and history, free from the past and innocent into the future. I finally understood that inspiring others was a side effect of simply living an authentic life.
Introduction

Marilu co-owns a small printing company in Florida with her husband. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the Universidad Central de Venezuela and an Associate of Applied Science degree in film and TV production. She spent four years writing for a Venezuelan news radio station and a year as a reporter for a local TV channel before moving to the United States in 2000 with her husband. When their second child was born—in 2004—they opened their printing business. In 2014, Marilu separated from her husband. After 2 turbulent years of depression, anxiety, and uncertainty, they managed to redefined their family and get back together for good. She was inspired to write her first book—What’s In the Way of Your Happiness?—during this time.

Marilu has been published in Elephant Journal and writes weekly for her personal blog, Downloads of Wisdom. She also hosts the radio program Meaningful Connections on BlogTalkRadio. Marilu supports the nonprofit organization Women for Women in their mission to restore communities after civil war. Her dream is to use their programs as a model to restore harmony in the family by strengthening the mother as its center.
