Maarja is one of two coaches who founded the Southwestern Coaching branch in Europe. She has coached clients from the Baltic states, Poland, Scandinavia, the UK, the US, and Canada since the beginning of 2016. She has helped sales leaders across a range of industries—including real estate, mortgage, insurance, and car sales—as well as golf courses, design agencies, and IT, agriculture, and construction companies.
Maarja began her sales career with Southwestern Advantage after her first year at the University of Tartu. She sold educational books and software with Southwestern Advantage for seven summers. During that time, she lived and worked in 10 different states, personally led sales teams of up to 12 people, finished as the top producer several times, and won the President’s Club award four times. In Estonia, Maarja worked as a sales representative for a start-up. She raised its annual revenue 1,200% over the previous year.
Maarja loves coaching because her biggest passion is to take a vision, put the plan in place, and not give up until the goal is accomplished. She strongly believes in a balanced lifestyle—there’s time to work and time to charge. Maarja genuinely loves helping others and seeing her clients achieve their goals. She also believes that self-development is a never-ending journey. She practices that belief in every area of her life, from leadership to yoga, financial investments, and exploring new countries.
