At age forty and at the pinnacle of professional “success,” Mary F. Collier had everything but happiness. On her journey to uncover the true meaning of success and fulfillment, she encountered suicide, fire, and financial devastation. With help, she discovered that true wealth and happiness lie within. Today, as an entrepreneur, business coach, and author, Mary empowers women at midlife to create lives and businesses that light their fire and feed their souls. She is the founder of CorePowered® Entrepreneurs, the leading business resource for women over forty that want to make an impact and change the world.
With more than 35 years of business experience, Mary’s love of all things entrepreneurial has led her to start several companies, including an award winning, multi-million dollar software company, and help other startup companies ranging from zero to $50M+. In addition to her extensive training in business planning, management and optimization, and digital marketing, Mary is also trained in equine facilitated leadership coaching, energy healing, feminine leadership, and other personal growth modalities.
Mary has worked with numerous Fortune 500 firms, NASA, technology firms, and renewable energy companies. She started her career as a software consultant for Booz, Allen before becoming CEO of a successful startup software company. She received her Bachelors degree in International Business and Information Systems from American University in Washington D.C.
While Mary traveled throughout her youth as the daughter of a Naval Officer, she found her home fifteen years ago, in a small ranching town in Montana. Mary is a glass artist, passionate about design, and loves to restore vintage trailers. She has two grown children, a stepson, an adopted-at-heart son, and grandchildren.
