Marti Ouellette

Age 57

My favorite thing about being a woman over 40 is knowing who I am and what I stand for with every fiber of my being. With age I have gained a newfound wisdom. When I was younger, I believed that my skills, my education, and my abilities were what brought me value. Today I have a deep knowing that my value is not about my skills, my accomplishments or my doing-ness. My value is in who I am as a human BEing.

I am living my most extraordinary life right now by creating joy each and every day. In the world of transformation, I am dedicated to supporting others in living their most extraordinary lives. Helping them in breaking through the things that stop them, the limiting beliefs they have about themselves and the world and developing a knowing that all things are possible when you embody faith, not fear. As an intuitive, I support my clients in seeing that which they cannot, express the language of their soul, and take action to create what they want.

In the next decade, I aspire to publish a book, produce a movie, deliver 5 TED talks, and host a podcast. I also aspire to complete 29029 Everest, spend a month traveling through New Zealand, sky camp, open an art studio, and create pottery all while delivering transformational leadership trainings as a certified transformation coach.

When I saw my portraits for the first time, I was upset with myself. I’ve put on a few pounds these past few years and it was shocking to see it right in front of me. Of course, that stuck with me for all of a few minutes. I just get to remind myself that I’m human, that my body does not define me, that anything and everything is possible no matter what my body looks like (well maybe not 29029 Everlasting). And it was a much-needed reminder that I have not been loving on myself as of late.
