Rising Stars: Meet Marlo Ramirez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marlo Ramirez.

Hi Marlo, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I am a Latina professional, mother, entrepreneur, and the Creator and Owner of The Mustard Seed Project. With 11 years of experience in Human Resources, Talent Development, Coaching, and Employer Branding. I felt there was a gap when it came to career and life coaching for the modern professional Latina Mom. Because of this, I created The Mustard Seed Project, which harnesses the power of my client’s personal beliefs and core values to unlock their power, and passion to find purpose in career and life. The Mustard Seed Project’s coaching framework blends scientific models and personal experience intuitively. Our coaching style and approach embody taking our clients along a journey of self-discovery coupled with proven strategies and tactics that allow modern professionals to achieve results quickly. The Mustard Seed Project’s coaching style leads to a sustainable and rapid shift for my clients.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
No, I haven’t had a smooth road. When I decided to start The Mustard Seed Project, I was just laid off from a company and my confidence was shaken. I did believe that creating coaching for the Modern Professional Latina Mom was a call on my life, but I wasn’t sure how to start a business and what I would need to establish to get it going. In a few months and many iterations, I was able to launch a company, and I believe I am actually helping people move their mountains.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am an innovative and revolutionary People + Talent Professional specializing in Career and Life Coaching for the Modern Professional As the Owner and Creator of The Mustard Seed Project, I specialize in coaching the modern professional by harnessing the power of their personal beliefs and core values to unlock their passion and find purpose in life and career. I also host The Move Your Mountains Podcast

Outside of work, you can catch me hanging with my two pugs Penelope and Phoebe, and enjoying time with my teenage daughter (who is actually 5) and my outdoor-loving rustic husband. MY AREAS OF EXPERTISE INCLUDE: • Career Coaching & Manager Coaching • Employee Engagement & Development • Learning & Development (L&D) • Leadership & Talent Development • Organizational Development (OD) • Talent Acquisition (Sourcing & Recruiting)

What sort of changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
I believe there is a need for more inclusion and diversity of thought. More women are needed at the table, I believe there will be a hiring uptick for more diverse candidates. With additional flexibility and changes in the workplace, professional Latina Mom’s voices will become very important for companies who are looking to have better cultures for their employees.
