The ingredients you need to make the impact you’re craving.

Are you wanting to create lasting impact and income without doing additional (and often accidental) harm to our already f’d up world?

We serve leaders who know that the current recipes out there just won’t work for their trailblazing ways, because either a) they’ve tried those recipes, and found that they felt out of integrity or b) just reading the “recipe” someone else wrote made their stomach churn with disgust. Sound familiar? If so, keep reading.

Currently, there are 3 ways we can support you in developing a leadership strategy that suits YOU at your core, with a keen eye towards technique & energy.

The R.E.A.L. Marketing Intensive

More feast, less famine.
For entrepreneurs, artists, writers, and creatives (inside or out of corporate) who successfully accept cash for their genius, and have revenues between $1500-$5000 a month. Perhaps this is your side hustle, perhaps it’s your full-time job, that part doesn’t matter. What matters is that you’re not making enough to feed your body and soul…yet. But you’re on the precipice. You can feel it.
The R.E.A.L. Marketing methodology is meant to strategically and finally utilize and leverage the tactical tools you’ve been hoarding in your business and marketing spice box. The goal? To give you the structure, strategy, and containers required to stabilize and scale your business beyond subsistence.

Your Leadership Recipe ::

One-on-One Mentorship, Coaching, Strategic & Energetic Support with Makenna
For entrepreneurs, leaders, and executives who know something is out of whack in their current strategy and trajectory but haven’t quite figured out the ‘what’ yet.  Our mission?  To move from managing to leading.  Hemorrhaging to profitable.  Coasting to expansive.  Together, we’ll dive into the core of your current way of being, narrow in on what deeply matters to you, and begin to shift everything. This process is meant to be both intriguing and honest — so that nothing will ever be the same. (But you wouldn’t be here if you wanted to maintain the status quo, now would you?)
Ready to see if we’re a good fit?

Name: Alejandra Ortega
Business: Chief of Making it Happen at

State of Business before our work:
When I met Makenna, I had been in business for less than a year, and was pretty proud of how far I had come, but I also felt like I was just coasting along and not being intentional about my growth. My biggest challenge was making decisions on the future of my business. I had fallen into the work I was doing by happenstance and was doing quite well, but felt like I had no idea how to set goals or even imagine where I could take this business.

State of Business AFTER our work:
Makenna helped me get super clear on my vision for my life and my business. She helped me growing my team, setting revenue goals, and adjusting prices so I could easily reach my goals.

I loved that Makenna never tried to get me to follow specific methods or blueprints for anything. We always talked about how I wanted to feel and what I wanted my life to be, and then she helped me figure out how I could manage my business in ways that supported that.

She also understood that life and business feed each other, and didn’t shy away from helping me figure out some personal stuff. Having that support and a holistic view of me as a person/business owner/service provider made a huge difference in how I grew my business and adapted to the changes and challenges that came up.

Long-term results:

In the two years I worked with Makenna, my business grew steadily and my revenue tripled.

I still ask myself myself the questions Makenna asked me whenever I’m setting goals and making plans, and I don’t get bogged down on all the online business chatter. What I learned from Makenna about how to create a business that serves me and the life I want to have will always be part of my toolbox.

see what an event looks like ::

  • “Makenna knows how to orchestrate an event. This was a mother effin symphony. Every detail, every moment, every speaker, (did I mention the massages during check-in?!), filled with intention. I felt so taken care of. This is a mandatory event for my business. I will attend as long as she’s keen on hosting them!”

    — Lindsay Padilla, Academics Mean Business
  • “I believe attending Your Leadership Recipe started me on a more intentional journey of self-reflection and exploration than I may have started otherwise. I left the event wanting more. More connection with others, especially those in attendance, more community, more self-understanding, more brilliance.”

    — Melissa Gerrior
  • “Practical Magic LIVE encouraged me to seek community in my life outside of the event that empowers and supports me. YLR lit a fire within me to take a hard look at any bullshit I participate in or perpetuate in my life.”

    — Sarah Silvas,
  • “[Makenna’s event] led to some of the most profound clarity for my own leadership.”

    — Megan Hale,

For teams and companies, we also offer private group events and trainings.

Applause, Impact, and What They Say ::

  • “I highly recommend that you run, not walk, towards anything that Makenna offers. Her impeccability, humor, wisdom, and vision combine to create incredibly powerful, practical, and profound experiences. Don’t miss the opportunity for Makenna to help you to grow yourself and your business from the heart of your integrity.”

    — Heather Ash,
  • “Working with Makenna is liking taking your bra off after a long hard day.  You didn’t even know it was bugging you, but once it’s off?  You can finally breathe and new things are possible.  She leans in, takes everything in, and then leans back to let it all integrate before speaking. Her insights are integrated.  Her coaching feels like being cherished.  In all of my (over)investment in coaching, those three months with Makenna gave me the foundational and tactical shift to allow my business to surge forward.”

    — Karen Fritz, Purpose Driven Process
  • “I feel like Makenna is just a sort of magical catalyst. She’s the real deal and I look forward to getting to work with her again.”

    — Tracy Brooks,
  • “She brings it! Very educated, and knowledgeable and articulate with her words. She definitely got me thinking and feeling things I didn’t ever think or feel before.”

    — Adera Angelucci,
  • “She’s amazing, so genuine. I loved her integrity and her insights into leadership.”

    — Halley Gray, Evolve and Succeed
