Speaker Bio

Marian Bacol-Uba is a TEDx Speaker, Conscious Business Coach, International Bestselling Author and the Founder of Thriver Lifestyle.

I am also a Certified Pranayama and Meditation Teacher and host of the Thriver Lifestyle Podcast and Mondays with Marian on YouTube.

I help women step into their POWER and soulfully THRIVE in life and business!

What does this mean?

  • It means having clarity in what you want to achieve both personally and professionally, then creating an action plan that is in alignment with your Highest Self to get the results you want.
  • It means having the confidence to launch that side hustle/new business/podcast/ whatever it is that lights your soul on fire!
  • It means creating a life filled with abundance, inner peace, joy and love!
  • It means showing up authentically YOU and building your tribe!

Why is this important to me?

Because I know what it’s like to operate in “Survivor” mode both personally and professionally… to think I had to do everything on my own, to feel disconnection between what my soul yearned for (freedom, impact, fulfillment) and what I thought I had to do as a career to make money.

Years ago, despite having a successful marketing career and active social life, I was severely unhappy and unfulfilled. I lived a double life, self-medicating with drugs and alcohol to numb the pain from years of childhood trauma.

No one ever suspected anything because I was always that person who seemed to have it “all figured out”.

It wasn’t until I overdosed and had an out-of-body, near-death experience that I finally WOKE UP! Since then I have been on an incredible journey of healing, transformation and personal development.

This journey has led to the unfolding of my purpose and that is empowering and helping others transform from living in survival mode to creating a thriving life and business filled with abundance, fulfillment and freedom.

Now I coach other women to step into their own power and create the life and business that is in alignment with their soul.

I have merged my 15+ years of marketing, event production and business development experience with my mission to create positive social impact.

Marian Bacol-Uba

You are worthy of creating and living your dream life! You are worthy of having a conscious business that creates both money and positively impacts others!

An overdose and out-of-body, near-death experience CHANGED HER LIFE!

Marian Bacol-Uba empowers audiences with her bold and inspiring approach to conscious leadership, resilience and life. Her talks are interactive and captivates the audiences attention.

Marian not only INSPIRES, but EDUCATES and gives tremendous value in all her talks and workshops. She ACTIVATES her audience to take steps forward.

She is the USA Chapter Lead and Founding Member of KeyNote Women Speakers, a global non-profit initiative that seeks to bring diversity to the world’s stages. KeyNote was founded in October 2017 in Singapore.

We all have a story to share with the world. I share my “Survivor to Thriver” story to show others that they too, can thrive through life’s adversities.

I share stories of resilience by operating with a Thriver mindset and stepping up as a conscious leader in our community.

    “Marian spoke and facilitated a meditation/mindfulness workshop at our Annual Board Leadership Retreat. We found her to be very engaging and authentic with a passion for educating leaders about mental health, meditation, and wellness. Through her work, the national leadership team walked away with a new set of tools that they could integrate into their own lives and infuse into members of their team in the various chapters, as well as solid and focused start to our weekend of meetings and activities. Days after the workshop, senior members in attendance were still discussing her work with us, and each of our chapter presidents expressed enthusiasm at working with her going forward.” Nirendran Kathirithamby, National President and Board Member – Project by Project, Inc.

    “Marian’s authentic approach to sharing what it means to live a Thriver lifestyle is thought provoking and invigorating! Even though her programming is focused on women’s’ empowerment, and mental health & wellness, I can attest that I took away much from her presentation at our March 2019 leadership development event. I came away from the event with new approaches to relieving some of the stresses of day to day living and bringing better balance into my life. I know that many of our members are looking forward to learning more from Marian!” – Lance Hong, LA Chapter President and SoCal Board Member – National Association Of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP)
