You’ve been working hard for months or even years on end, waiting for your boss to promote you. Yet, no matter how hard you work, all you seem to earn is more hard work and an occasional pat on the back. Now, you’re feeling stuck, maybe frustrated, underappreciated and insecure. Am I good enough, am I capable, is this what God wants for my life? 

Through God’s Not Done With You, you’re going to learn how to understand work is worship, deepen your relationship with Christ and find peace and abundance at work, with the full recognition that you deserve. Despite the fact that women are underrepresented, filling less than one-fourth of the C-suite, God’s Not Done With You helps women at all levels to take control of their careers, harness your God-given potential as you learn how to create your own promotion plan, get noticed and get promoted into the future that God has planned for you.

Welcome to The Author Hour Podcast, I’m your host Benji Block and today, we’re joined by Mary Guirovich, she’s just authored a new book. The book is called, God’s Not Done With You: How to Advance Your Career and Live in Abundance. Mary, thank you for joining on Author Hour today.

Mary Guirovich: Thank you, Benji. I appreciate the opportunity to be here and share with you.

Benji Block: Yeah, I want to start the conversation here just for those that may not have the full scope of the work that you do. Would you just give us a little bit of your background and what your day-to-day looks like, Mary?

Mary Guirovich: Absolutely. Years ago, I actually found myself stuck in my career. I had went in and I asked my boss for advancement because there was an open position and he said that I would need to do the responsibility before I got the paying title. Well, that left me working harder and I was trying to earn this advancement but it really wasn’t working so well.

Anyways, a few weeks had passed and I was actually sitting at work one day on my day off and my husband called me and he told me that his company was going in a different direction and so he would probably be out of his job. My heart sank. I couldn’t earn a promotion, my husband, the breadwinner was going to be out of the job and we just had our fourth child but I told him everything was going to be okay. God had spoke to me and he said, “Mary, make a plan.”

That’s what I did. I went to work making a plan and that’s what I teach today, it’s called, My Promotion Plan and so I teach women how to actually put pen to paper and outline a plan, the same plan that God gave me years ago. And to my delight, when I turned in this plan, I was made Vice President of Operations the next day. And another plan and another year later, I was made Chief Operating Officer. And the plans really worked so well for implementing, Benji, that I made another one and that’s when I was made a partner, told I was on track to be CEO in one to two years.

I knew that I had to share this promotion planning process with other women because I was interviewing people as an executive and people would come in and they kind of teach you, “Don’t promote people” or “Don’t hire people that aren’t promotable in their last position.” And these people would come in and they were incredible and sometimes I hire them and they would run circles around everybody. 

They didn’t get this magical burst of personal growth overnight, it’s that they weren’t advocating for themselves. And as I dug deeper, I realized, because I kind of thought when I was struggling to advance, my career was the only one but as I dug deeper, I realized, “Well, there is an epidemic of women that are not promoting themselves and stepping up for advancement.” And there’s many different reasons that I’m sure we’ll talk about throughout this time but I knew that I wanted to help other women. 

So, I started teaching others the promotion planning process and they too were able to earn promotions and raises through this system. So, I wanted to be able to get this into the hands of many people as possible so I took my online course that I made and I distilled it into this book.

Applying and Aligning Your Values and Affirmations to Experience Change

Benji Block: Love that you’ve taken the work that you are already doing and put it in a different medium as a book. Obviously, a book is more easily distributable, right? People can read it at their own pace and there’s strategic ways that they can use the book, but I do know that taking on a book project is a big deal. It takes time and effort, so why was now the right time to take My Promotion Plan and move it into a book format.

Mary Guirovich: I started writing the book, actually, at the beginning of January 2020, pre-pandemic. This book was downloaded and actually, at that time, I had just niched down to just helping women advance in their careers. Before that, I was helping everybody. Once I really dug into it even further, I searched Google, I read many, many books on career advancement and what I noticed is that there was a gap. There was a gap between what we were being told, we weren’t getting the full picture of everything that we really needed to be able to be successful in advancement.

This gap was happening for two reasons. One, because career advancement isn’t created equally for men and women. It’s just not between the different unconscious biases that we have and just the way that we interact and just the natural laws and principles in which people interact. It’s not that people are necessarily out to oppress women, that’s not the case. It’s these hidden things that are happening. And so with me understanding this and then also, when I was struggling to advance in my career and I was reading these books and reading all these things on the Internet, what I realize is that there is a gap. There was a gap and we weren’t being told specifically what to do, right?

The stuff that we were told just wasn’t aligning with my values as a person. I didn’t want to go in and threaten my boss and so, I started to write this book now because God put it on my heart in 2019 that he wanted me to help one million women advance in their careers through promotions and raises. One million women, that’s a big goal and I try to say, “God, no, that’s not going to work, that’s too many people” and He’s like, every time I try to change that goal, He’s like, “No, you can’t change it. Trust me.” 

This is a God-sized goal and I know God will provide and so, writing the book was a way to extend this because not only do we have the online course but now people were able to get this in their pocket and have something more than just advice like “Take on strategic projects,” “Work really hard” or “Threaten your boss to leave.”

Now, they could have something that actually aligned with their values and I believe that it’s the number one way to advance whether you’re a man or a woman and so I’ve wanted to share this with the world because it’s really not mine, it’s the Lord’s. He said, “Share it, put it in a book” and so here I was.

Benji Block: Nice, I love that and you start the book by dedicating the book saying, “To God, for planting the seed in me a long time ago.” I did want to mention that real quick and have you expand on it a little bit. You mentioned 2019, things kind of started formalizing, maybe in your head but did you always have the dream of writing a book since you were younger? I know sometimes it’s like a — as a kid, even people have that dream but when did a book become something that really felt right to you and where did that dream form?

Mary Guirovich: I wish, Benji, I wish I could say [that as a] kid I dreamed of writing a book but the truth is, when I was in the 1st grade, I started struggling with spelling and reading and writing and I actually adopted the belief that I wasn’t very intelligent and I actually wasn’t capable of those things. I let my — what I know now is wrong thinking, right? 

I was thinking, I was incapable of this because at such a young age, I had these struggles and I struggled all the way through school. It wasn’t until I was 35 that I actually heard Dr. Bruce Lipton speak at a conference and he shared how our subconscious mind works and how the things that we tell ourselves in those first seven years of life and the things that we see, how we create these different patterns in our life. 

I had created this program that said, “Mary, you’re not capable of writing, reading or spelling” and up to that time, I had read very few books and I was 35 years old at this point, so for nearly 30 years of my life, I had the limiting belief that I was incapable. 

When I heard this man speaking, the tears rolling down my face and I just knew in that moment that I could change that belief. I had a choice because now, I knew that it existed and I made a conscious decision to say, “I can write.” Now, it didn’t mean I was a great writer overnight but I started writing blogs and that’s when I really believed that it was possible for me.

At that same time, I was studying how courses are made. I was working as an executive and I really wanted to understand how people learned. I came across this YouTube video that shared with us that when we’re trying to learn, if we have fear, it actually can block the learning and this was the time when I just kind of solidified these thoughts in my head, right? 

I’d already heard Bruce Lipton speak and now I saw this. Well, at that same time that I started having those struggles as a child, I was also molested and it was something that I — a journey that I had never shared, I hadn’t even shared it with my parents. It was just something that I kind of held onto in my life. And I just realized, “Hey, I’m just going to adopt this belief that the reason I have these struggles is because of the fear that I had, the confusion that I had, the pain that I had and that’s why I couldn’t do it.”

That’s really, when I was 35, is when I was like, I’m now 37 so it was very shortly after that, it was within eight months that I was like, “Okay, I’m going to write a book.”

Benji Block: I love that. Wow.

Mary Guirovich: I knew I needed a team, right? I knew I couldn’t do it all because I wanted to write a good book, right? I maybe only have one book in me but I wanted it to be a good one and so I knew I needed a team to be able to do that. And asking for help is one of those powerful things that we can do because it helps us to go — to really enhance the things that we have inside of us.

Benji Block: Yeah, I am excited to dive into some of the content here and I think with that back story and that context, it makes what you share and the how-to, a lot more, it makes them hit home and in just a different way. You’ve gone through change over the years, right? When it comes to your approach and your mentality around work. 

You actually start the book about talking through this idea of being a Christian workaholic. Tell me a little of that personal journey and some of what you identified there?

Mary Guirovich: Yeah, absolutely. For me before, once I graduated high school, work was just something you were supposed to do and pretty early on, I was successful in my career, was able to get a promotion and I started getting addicted to this success because I found something that I was good at, right?

When I lived with this limiting belief that I wasn’t very intelligent, I was like, that was this negative thing. It was like this shot of dopamine, every time I could have success and so, getting that validation through work, it became more — I placed my value, and whenever you place your value in only your work — working is a biblical principle, so working is a great thing.

God wants us to work but whenever you work so you can be validated by others, it can take you into a really dark place and that’s where I was going because I had to continue to work harder and harder and harder and I was working out of my own strength. I would work early, I would work late, I would just be working all the time and putting work above everything else but especially even my family, right? 

I think so often that we can have a tendency to do this, we fear letting people down at work or we fear losing our job or we fear not looking intelligent so we just work harder and harder and harder but that’s not what God actually wants for us. He does want us to work but not to the point where we are sacrificing everything in our life because we’re not going to find true happiness.

Benji Block: Right. I think that’s an important distinction. I totally resonate with that kind of addicted-to-success phase and waking up to the reality that something needs to shift. So, you brought up mindset already, you talk about obviously, being in this room, having this — hearing about our subconscious mind, knowing you need to shift something. When I think of moments like that, it’s hard to — you can’t obviously force someone else to have that awakening type moment, right? Where something just shifts in them.

You can try to explain your experience and prompt that kind of as a prerequisite before you even get to the rest of the book, you talk a lot about mindset and I feel like a huge part of that is just because, if your mindset doesn’t shift, then, if you try doing just the practical side, there’s a disconnect there, is that right, Mary?

Mary Guirovich: Yeah, that’s absolutely right. I was actually saved back in 2009 and I was living as the best Christian — just call it a Christian believer, whatever you want to call it — that I could be. I was reading my bible, I was volunteering but I was just kind of going through the motions and when I was first saved, I felt the Holy Spirit come into my heart and my world was changed. Things that I could not have helped myself from before, I was just changed. There was a period of time I quit drinking or before, I was like, going out all the time, I was drunk all the time. It was part of life, right? I worked in a restaurant, it was part of what you did.

I was having sexual relationships with people and once I was saved, it was like, “I don’t want to do that anymore,” and I don’t know what that is because, that was not me. I don’t have that kind of power within me. That’s where I needed that recognition, I needed people to see me and I thought, that’s where my value came from was my beauty and my body. That’s how I was valuing myself. But once I was saved, that kind of all changed.

Benji Block: Yeah.

Mary Guirovich: I was able to have — it was just incredible but anyways, as the years went on, I kind of felt this yearning for how that was, how that initial relationship felt with the Lord. I’m like, “Why do I not have this thing?” What I realized, through rededicating myself and literally, I read Hal Elrod’s, The Miracle Equation and in his book, he has you write affirmations. At the same time, I was writing this book, God’s Not Done With You, at the beginning of 2020, I set this goal to have God at the center of my life, in deep within my heart. 

That was the number one focus. I wasn’t going to focus on a work goal, I wasn’t going to focus on anything else other than God. Top priority, only goal and my gosh, when we ask God to show up, he shows up. So many of the things I had learned over the years about mindset and how to use affirmations or gratitude or all of these things, I always kind of question, “Well, is that not trust in God? Is that not trust in God?”

In the book, I like to tie it together in different scientific principles with our biblical principles and how energy works because the truth is, God created the earth, He created the laws, He created energy and that’s how our systems really work. There’s so many good tools out there but if we’re not applying them in our lives, then we can’t actually experience the changes.

It’s not until I started applying the changes in my life that I could actually experience the difference. For me that came through understanding who God is, how much He loves me and once I renewed my mind and what I call harmonize my heart and now, I teach other people how to do this too.

Really, that’s the most important thing, having that relationship with the Lord, in such a way that you can have an unwavering faith because you know the faithfulness of God. That’s really what mindset is about. For me, it’s about having my mind and my beliefs aligned with what God says is true for my life.

If I can align my beliefs, especially the beliefs within my heart that say, who I am and whose I am and what I’m capable of, if I can align that with God’s promises for my life then I can live that out. That was the biggest transformational thing that I’ve ever experienced in my life is knowing that God loves me unconditionally and He is for me and He is working things out for my greatest good.

Benji Block: Yeah, as you work with Christian women, what are some of those internal mind games and maybe internal turmoil that they experience that you feel is hyper-specific to the women you work with? Are there things that are just recurring themes? 

Mary Guirovich: Yeah, there’s a few things that are recurring themes and that’s when — originally, when I set out to write this book, God wasn’t even a part of the plan. He wasn’t going to be in the book and then He spoke to me again and He’s like, “Mary, I’m supposed to be in this book.” I thought it was some kind of weird procrastination, perfectionism technique.

It was already such a feat for me to write the book and now, let’s put your religion in it because that’s something you feel really secure about. And Emily, my editor, she said, “Yes, you absolutely should put God in your book.” So, thank you Emily, thank you God. But a few things that really stand out are you know, we live in this world but we are not of the world and so we see how things operate in the world and often times, that’s what we want ourselves. 

For a lot of women, it is actually a prize to be able to be a stay-at-home mom and I don’t have nothing against stay-at-home moms, you can do great work. Our work is not only done in the workplace but we have this pull to think that we should be home taking care of our children. God designed us yes, to have children and take care of them but he also designed us to do other work in the world and that’s different for every single person. So, I am not here to say what it is for you specifically. 

You should talk to God about it but if you are a stay-at-home mom and you feel bad — because that happens a lot of times, stay-at-home moms are like they actually want to go back into the workplace and I believe that’s because we were designed to work. So we also question our value, right? This is something that as Christians, it’s sometimes like, “Well, money is evil.” That’s kind of a common theme, “I shouldn’t want money.”

The truth is God doesn’t say that money is evil. He says that the love of money is the root of all evil and when we can understand the difference, then we can have a better relationship with money. Those people would ask, “Well, how much money…” Or they would ask you, “Well, how much money is too much money, right? Because depending on where you live in the world just having a home in some areas is $600,000. 

In some areas, it’s a $100,000, in some areas, it’s $10,000 it would be seen as a lot of money. So it is really relative but I believe that the amount of money that’s too much money is the amount where you take your trust off of God and you put it in your money. That could be a $100, that could be a $100 million or that could be no amount of money and when we have our operating system about money in line with what God says, we are generous, right? 

Believers following what God’s word is, we are generous, you would only have more to give. So I think the thing is to align with the principles first. Because you will not change your character if you have more money, you will be the same person. Those are a couple of the big things that I see. Then I’d say the last one is about having ambition and wanting to promote yourself because we are told that promotion comes from the Lord and that is absolutely true, right? 

God can open doors and God can shut doors that nobody else can but where we’ve got it wrong, and we do this because there is a parable where it says to be humble and not to put yourself in a position, wait for somebody else to put you in that position. But the truth is, is that’s not applying to promotion itself because you’re not actually putting yourself in the position. You are not assigning yourself to it. 

You are raising your hand when you turn a promotion plan in to say, “Hey, I would like this opportunity and here’s why I feel I would be good at this opportunity.” It’s the same as applying for a job we don’t just assume that God is going to drop jobs out of the sky for us to even — 

Benji Block: Yeah. 

Mary Guirovich: Right? Sometimes he does, sometimes we get those miracles but he doesn’t say that you can’t be ambitious and when we are actually being ambitious, God gave you God-given ambition and He wants you to continue to grow until the day that you die and part of that is living at your highest God-given potential and using the gifts that He’s given you and sometimes, you need to move into a different position. He uses leaders over and over and over again. 

It is not bad to be a leader, you actually can have more influence and more impact if that’s what God’s calling you to do. 

Power Plans Open Up Opportunities of Advancement

Benji Block: I love how this book moves through why this stuff is important and you address some of the history and really go into mindset and then you give some — just what does this look like and at the end, it’s very practical like how would I do this? I want to go there with you for a few minutes because in part three of your book, you focus on transforming your career with some really good tips and tools, one being this seven-step promotion blueprint. 

Mary, would you walk us through a little bit of what we can expect there in that blueprint and some of what we would be working on? 

Mary Guirovich: Yeah, absolutely. I think this is the differentiator between this book and so many other books out there, because this is where it gives you the actual plan that I have used in other women across the country have used to move into the positions, the positions that God has already prepared you for. In this seven-step process, we start off with appreciation. That’s really the first step because we want to appreciate those that have helped us to get to where we are. 

We didn’t get here on our own, so we teach you how to do that in a meaningful way and what I learned after the fact is it’s actually a great negotiation strategy is to queue somebody as being helpful and amazing. It just so happens that that’s part of the plan. The next thing we do is we teach you how to put your accomplishments together. You have likely accomplished great things in your role and we think that our leaders, managers know everything that we’ve accomplished but the truth is, they don’t. 

Oftentimes, they’re not there in the day-to-day and they don’t even know sometimes the impact that your great accomplishments have made. The next thing we do is we talk about your ideas for the future. This is where you really get to cast the vision because if you are in your current role just like I was years ago, I hadn’t really had an opportunity to showcase my strategy and my vision because I’ve never been put in that big leadership role within this organization, so I never had that opportunity. 

This is our chance to really showcase, “Hey, what are our ideas?” and I think God gives us all ideas. He is constantly downloading new things to us, so often we’re all looking around and wondering like, “Hey, what’s working for other people?” And where I think that’s good to figure out what’s working for other people, I think it is also great to look inside ourselves and ask God, “Hey, what should our company do? What ideas? What should we be implementing?” So we talk about presenting new ideas and also looking for problems within the organization. 

I don’t know if you have seen the show Undercover Boss but I love that show and that show actually really inspires me to do my work. Because when I watched that show, I see a couple of things on there. I see women that have been in position for like eight years plus and they haven’t been given a raise or promotion and they’re amazing and the people are like, “Why?” like the main CEOs are always like, “Why are we not rewarding this person?” 

They are so shocked that this has happened, they also see that this person has ideas, amazing ideas for the organization and that is when the CEOs get most lit up, whenever somebody has ideas and they take initiative to make things better and they want to take those ideas. They want to take that person back to headquarters and they want that person to develop systems for the whole company. 

Well, this is your opportunity to kind of like be on Undercover Boss, without having to have your boss go undercover because you get to present your best ideas and solutions to them and not only that, it makes — like you get to actually implement your ideas because they’re fully heard. I teach you how to present them in a way that takes the emotion out of the idea because there are so many reasons why ideas aren’t adopted. 

The important thing is that you showcase those ideas in the right way and so we teach you how to do that, how to break it down so your boss is like, “Oh my gosh, we have to do this thing.” We teach you how to give solutions so it doesn’t come off as if you’re complaining and things like that. Then we teach you how to negotiate, figure out what’s your worth in the marketplace, your true worth and value always comes from God, never your title or your paycheck. But we teach you how to figure out what your worth in the marketplace so that when you do go in to ask for that promotion, you’re ready to negotiate. 

Then we teach you how to close the plan in such a way that you can really present what it is you’re looking for, what is your next plan you want and what’s that next step and then the last two pieces we teach you, we teach you how to put a personal development and growth plan together and we teach you how to put what we call a career advancement journey together. You actually create a road map to know what your next steps are in your journey and what it’s going to take to get you there. 

Benji Block: I love how all-encompassing it is because you are really walking through the entire process. 

Mary Guirovich: Exactly. We don’t — I am a perfectionist. I pay attention to details and so you really get everything and so, you know exactly how to design it, when to present it. We teach you how to go through your career advancement meeting. I know that’s one thing, so often people would come into my office and they’re like, “I’m not sure what I’m supposed to say.” Well, how confident, how much more are you going to be looked at as ready for that promotion? 

If you walk into your boss’s office and you know exactly what to say to them, you know exactly how to run that meeting and because you know and because you have rehearsed, you can do it with confidence. It just separates you so much further from everybody else and most people, they’re just walking into their boss’s office and saying, “Hey, I want more money. Hey, I want a promotion.” They’re not really doing much of anything. 

My boss shared with me, and this is why it is not only great for women looking to advance in their careers but it is also great for business owners to implement a system like this into their business. Because this became the standard for asking for raises and promotions in our company, and when I was recently talking to my partner, he was sharing. He’s like, “You added so much value.” He’s like, “We got so much out of those plans, they were so valuable to us as a company.” 

He’s like, “Most people don’t do that. They’re just getting promotions and raises, companies are just handing out money and they’re not usually getting a lot of value for that” and not that the person isn’t a good job moving into that next role but wouldn’t it be great if you could actually take a look inside and see what their strategy and vision really is before they step into that position? 

Benji Block: For sure, the proactive nature of that is extremely valuable for business owners. 

Mary Guirovich: Yeah, absolutely. It’s so exciting and the thing I really love about that, Benji, is when companies take and they put a system like this promotion planning system; we call them power plans. We teach — we actually work with companies as well — we teach them how to put power plans in place. Whenever a company puts a power plan in place and the team members know that in order to advance, “This is the system. This is how it works,” you will see a difference in women advancing in your company.

Benji Block: Interesting. 

Mary Guirovich: Naturally, it creates a system for equity, inclusion and diversity within your company what so many companies want today but they’re not really sure how to go about it but what we know is when women know what the system is and how they’re supposed to act within the system, they will do that. So they will be more likely to raise their hand and step up and say, “Hey, here I am” because our society naturally just teaches women to wait to be advanced. 

In that show I was telling you about, Undercover Boss, you see that. I was watching one the other day and the woman says, she’s like, “Yeah, I’m just going to work really hard and I will just going to wait until I get promoted” and I was just like, “Oh.” It just hurts me because they’re so valuable and they’re so ready for that next step but they’re just not being seen. 

Benji Block: Wow, there is a lot we could go into there obviously there’s why we want people to go pick up the book. But I want to highlight one area and just get your sort of practical advice. You talk about being able to show what you’ve accomplished and sometimes your superiors don’t know and so you’ve got to kind of have track of that and be willing and ready to present that. 

Any practical tips you would give away here as to maybe an ongoing way of keeping track of that or how have you sort of strategically thought through that process? 

Mary Guirovich: Yeah, so I actually brought this accomplishment section in on the second promotion plan that I made. The first one was all just the ideas that was really it. I was just, “Just get the ideas out there” but the second one, I wanted to update my managers on what we had accomplished and it was so empowering when I went back through that to see how much we had really accomplished. 

Once you create your first promotion plan, it’s really a blueprint for the second one because you are able to go through and check off like, “Okay, we got this done. We’ve accomplished this, this was the result of that” and really go back and reflect on that. Now, if you haven’t done that yet, then all you have to do is either look back through the last year or since your last promotion if it’s been like maybe a year and a half or two years, you can do it since your last promotion and think about the things that you have accomplished within your role. 

I always suggest get pen and paper and just start a brain dump of those things and don’t judge it, right? We have a tendency to judge the impact of something but the truth is that different things are going to be important to different managers. I always suggest you list all of your accomplishments and in the book we teach you other ways. If you’re like, “Man, I don’t really have a lot of accomplishments. I don’t feel like I did that much” which usually, people are being humble, especially women.

They are just seeing it as, “Well, we did this as a team and this really wasn’t me” but usually, you are doing more than you think. We teach you in the book how to cover that if you are one of those people that are like, “I don’t really accomplish much” and still get your promotion but just start with the brain dump and don’t judge it. Just write your stuff down. I know once I was working in restaurants years before and one of the things I did was I dressed up the restroom. 

Our restrooms were very plain and just by adding a nice bouquet of fake flowers in the restroom and coming up with a procedure for ensuring our restrooms were cleaned and stocked, that gave a better customer experience. 

Benji Block: Right, yep. 

Mary Guirovich: Although it might seem, yeah, something so simple and maybe it is not as significant as saving labor cost or food cost or increase in sales or decreasing retention. We give you all the categories, so you are able to look through a category list in the book to really see like, “Oh okay.” [It] will spark ideas like, “Oh, I did do that. I did do that” to help you kind of flush out those things that you did accomplish but even something small like that, it shows your boss how you take care of details. 

How you care about the appearance of the business and how you look at every little thing, right? Because nobody had put flowers in that restaurant for the other eight years that the business existed there. 

Benji Block: Yeah, you have a special insight and a special thing that you saw and then a hole that you filled, which if you can do that on a small scale, then you’re going to be obviously be given more opportunity in the future to take on bigger projects, so I think that’s a really practical one. Mary, as we start to wrap up here, what do you hope when someone — when a woman finishes this book, what do you hope their main feeling is and their main takeaway? 

Mary Guirovich: Yeah, the main feeling I want them to have is an unwavering confidence in the Lord to help them with the journey that he has them on. The Lord has set out a path and a plan for your life and if you are feeling uneasy because you haven’t advanced in years then He probably is calling you to advance. I just want people to feel empowered, equipped and have the confidence to continue to accelerate in their career year after year. 

That is what my clients tell me, they just feel so encouraged and they have confidence and the knowhow that they never had before. It transforms their lives that this one time, a husband actually came up to me and he’s just like, “I can’t thank you enough for working with my wife. She has more confidence than she’s ever had before.” And the truth is every woman should know their value and their worth. And when we know our value and worth in God, then we can focus on the things He’s calling us to do. That’s what I really want for people. 

Benji Block: Yep, I love that. Mary, for those that want to stay connected to you and your work and maybe even check out some of your course and all that, where is the best way for people to connect? 

Mary Guirovich: Yes, so people, if you want to email me directly you can do that at [email protected]. That’s just [email protected] or you can check us out online at and on there, you can get hooked and we have new YouTube videos every week, new vlogs every week, new Facebook videos every week.

It’s all donation, we donate all of the proceeds so you can get in there, whether you have the book or you don’t have the book, so you can understand the promises of God and experience them as real in your life. 

Benji Block: Fantastic. Well, thank you for being on Author Hour today.
