About Me

Hi! I’m Marian Bacol-Uba and I’m a TEDx Speaker, International Bestselling Author, Conscious Business Coach and the Founder of Thriver Lifestyle. I love helping women step into their POWER and soulfully THRIVE in life and business!

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.

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!


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.

Every talk is customized for the audience and is engaging as well as interactive. My goal is to bring immense value in every talk/training/workshop and share the tools, frameworks and lessons that I learned to transform my own life and my clients’ lives.

The 4 Pillars of Being a Thriver is a framework that is not only beneficial in your personal lives but can also be taught to create a thriving business and work environment as well. Audiences will not only be inspired, but will leave with techniques and teachings to implement in their own lives, both personally and professionally. I motivate them to take action so they can achieve results and alignment in life and business!


I am committed to your transformation and your results! I work closely with my coaching clients to get to the root of their fears and limiting beliefs that holds them back creating the life and business of impact they truly desire.

Partnered with over 15 years of marketing, PR/media, event planning and strategic partnership experience, I am able to help women step into their power to become conscious leaders, speakers and influencers. I am your guide in this journey of personal development and transformation. I hold space for you but also hold you accountable for achieving aligned results.

Work with me and together, we will help you gain the clarity and confidence you seek to step into your POWER and THRIVE!
