Maria Gavriel is a Certified Business Coach, Award Winning Author, Parent Advocate, and the voice behind

She has been empowering purpose-driven women to create fulfilling, prosperous, passionate lives doing what they love…and has been featured on NPR, Arianna Huffington's Thrive, Yahoo! News, Magazines, Newspapers, as well as Expos and Summits sharing how to achieve your ultimate vision, and create massive success.

Maria enjoys helping women break down the barriers that have restricted their ability to create the conditions for their best and highest self to emerge, and experience the life they were meant for.

She infuses business with internal work so that women can live their best life both at home & in business. After launching multiple businesses, she’s taught her business blueprint to effectively create sustainable heart-driven prosperity, watching her clients grow their dream to 6 figures in just one year.

After overcoming her own challenges with infertility and conceiving naturally; re-igniting and re-inventing her marriage after separation; building and growing her own successful businesses; and raising 2 healthy, loving children, it was time to “pay it forward” - to support others to begin doing whatever they thought was impossible, so that they can change their lives permanently, and experience the happy, healthy, vital life they deserve.

Maria has coached, activated and supported countless families in making a difference in all areas of their lives, by living a “w”holistic, vibrant life…honoring mind, body and spirit.

Maria’s vision is to create the possibility of world transformation, by consciously creating the life we were meant to live, as well as consciously parenting our next generation. It’s a powerful way to forge a brighter path for our future.

You may also find her enjoying a good meal somewhere, or hiking and traveling the world with the loves of her life.

RBWN April Virtual Meeting: Stand Out with Confidence

Apr 15, 12:00pm - Apr 15, 2:00pm

Stand Out with Confidence and Presence to Succeed on your own Terms

You have a personal brand - the goal is to make it intentional. You have fewer than 7 seconds to make a first impression and research shows, that on average, that impression last for six months. How you look and present yourself to the world matters. It can make your break getting the deal, moving up the ladder, opening doors. Learn how you can show-up for success with just a bit of forethought and intention. In addition - looking in the mirror and knowing you look the part is actually the easiest thing you can do to boost self confidence.

Begin the process of creating a personal brand with intention.
Gain feedback on how other's perceive you.
Learn that having an intentional image and presence is easy to do and it is based on art, science and psychology

Cyndy Porter is the founder and owner of Success thru Style. She coaches professional women in discovering their personal brand and living it inside and out.

Cyndy is like most women in many ways. She was never taught how to feel beautiful. In fact, she was taught the opposite. She was a shy, sensitive, and insecure girl—a target for bullies. And she took everything to heart. She was even convinced that she wasn't smart. This got in her way of personal and professional success.

Eventually, she turned her life around and built a career. Now she has built her own company designed to do this for others. Using principles based in science, art, psychology, and business marketing, Cyndy has developed a unique personal branding and business coaching strategy and business that empowers women to have a powerful self-image and live their lives with poise and confidence.

Cyndy believes every woman deserves to feel beautiful. Every woman should leave her house with the confidence that she can take on the world.

Cyndy has a Bachelor of Science degree from California State University, Chico. She spent 20 years as a sales and marketing professional in a number of high tech organizations including WAIS (one of the first Internet companies in existence), Kodak, and her final corporate position as a divisional Vice President of Marketing at AOL. Cyndy started her own business over ten years ago after she got certified as a professional photographer from Professional Photographers of America. It is her mission and the mission of her company, Success thru Style, to help women everywhere develop the confidence they need to show up in the world as their true self and succeed on their own terms.

Creating relationship capital with your customers
Linking purpose to value with your audience

Kelli Wingo, CPC, ELI-MP
Kelli [Kel -ee] Origin: Gaelic, Irish Meaning: warrior

warrior, orator, coach, content creator, fire-starter and lover of laughter

Kelli has a passion and calling to help people realize the greatness that lies within. She serves as the Founder/Chief Vision and Strategy Officer of KMW Catalyst LLC, a personal and professional development company focusing on authentic personal branding and entrepreneurship/intrapreneurship culture. She is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP), accomplished speaker, content creator, presenter, and writer.

She is also the Founder/Chief Orator of Spiryt In Motion, a movement dedicated to dismantling the oppression of limiting beliefs one talk at a time.

As the creator and host of the YouTube channel, The War Room with Jael, Kelli energetically shares motivation, inspiration, insight, and strategy on business and life with a broader audience. Her writing can be seen in Forbes, CEO World, Thrive Global, Addicted 2 Success, Medium, The Good Men Project, and LinkedIn.

As a business junkie, what intrigues Kelli most is the stories about the people behind the business. From corner bakery store owners to recent college grads entering into the workforce to CEOs of trillion-dollar companies. Everyone has a unique journey worth knowing.

​Recovering imperfect perfectionist that she is, her own road to realizing her vision has been a varied and textured journey, having spent much of her career in the financial services industry at Merrill Lynch, BlackRock, and Oppenheimer & Co. However, it was when she jumped ship without a lifejacket into the unchartered waters of entrepreneurship, she found the intersection of fear and fearlessness, failures and successes...and has never felt more empowered.

Although based on the East Coast, Kelli still celebrates her Midwestern roots. She is a graduate of The University of Michigan - Residential College (Hail to the Victors!) and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., an international public service organization. She received her CPC and ELI-MP from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and holds membership in the International Coach Federation as well as the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce.

...and we are pleased to present Ms. Kelli Wingo...isn't that what they say after reading a long life story bio?

Now, what's your story?
