a podcast series event filled with interviews and lessons from confident leaders teaching you how to become more confident as a thought leader so you can Boldly take up space and spread your mission around the world




i'm totally joining this mission

We've brought together 7 incredible folks from different industries and backgrounds to share with you what it takes to feel truly confident in taking up space

Together, we're on a mission to empower Latinas, Women of Color, Queer, Neurodivergent, and Folks of all walks of life to step into their power through their diversity and start making their mission of impact more visible

any of these sound familiar?

i want to take up more space

SOMEONE SOMEWHERE TOLD YOU YOU'RE NOT ENOUGH—AND YOU BELIEVED THEM—you're too loud, too all over the place, too rambly, too unprofessional, you have an accent... you do not fit in (um.... why would I want to fit in anyway??)

YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE NOT *THERE* YET—it's almost as if no matter what you achieve in your business, you still feel like a baby coach or baby service provider (...when will it finally feel like you belong in the room with *them*?!)

YOU DON'T OFTEN SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS OR IDEAS—you know you’re good at what you do, you may even consider yourself a thought-leader (or soon-to-be one), but often find yourself diminishing your unique gifts by trying to do things “their” way

AS YOUR MOST UNAPOLOGETIC AND AUTHENTIC SELF—own all of your unique quirks, your flaws, and everything that society says isn't "enough", to truly stand out and build a powerful brand folks love

IN YOUR VOICE AS A THOUGHT LEADER—take up space + share your perspective on subjects you're passionate about in ways that motivate others to see things differently

BOOKING SPEAKING EGNGAGEMENTS—what you have to say deserves to live beyond social media and the 24-hr window the algorithm gives you to share your message

MAKING YOUR MISSION OF IMPACT WILDLY VISIBLE—share your mission on a larger scale to help break the narrative and spread awareness around the social issues you and your community care so deeply about

THROUGH powerful interviews and lessons around embracing your self, brand, and voice, you'll become more confident...


ready to boldly step into the room, get more visible, and start booking speaking engagements?!

I remember the moment I decided that I was worthy of belonging in the room.

I was so bored with the content I had been putting out until then. Everything felt so stiff and regurgitated. Basically the type of stuff you can easily find on Google.



With this new shift, I started to show up more imperfectly instead of trying to "get it right" by following other people's advice.

I started to embrace more of my brand—the confident parts of my that were too "aggressive", my quirky Latinidad, the way that my brain thinks differently, and the things I care deeply about. 

I also started to embrace the fact that I belonged in the room as I was, and no one could stop me from sharing my own experiences, brilliant ideas, and unique perspectives.

That's when I truly started to embody leadership as a skill.

This led to booking my first in-person speaking event and uncovering my signature visibility framework. It quickly spiralled into booking interviews on top-rated podcasts, getting paid to speak inside masterminds, and speaking in front of thousands of ideal clients who wanted to learn from me specifically.

i was ready to step into thought leadership + to take up space

now i help folks who have a deeper mission of impact, confidently take up space

Maria (she/her) is the Founder of Maiden Gone Rogue, a visual consultancy studio based in the Tampa Metro Area.

Maria's journey into entrepreneurship began as a way to fuel her inner creative—but it has since become a true passion to help CEOs create rogue brands that defy and redefine "industry standards."

She created MGR to be more than just a “consulting studio"... but a way to show ambitious founders what they are truly capable of. She works with entrepreneurs who have a vision—that’s simply missing the strategy and direction to bring it to life.

Maria loves challenging them, pushing them past their comfort zone(s), and amplifying them in the online space. You know...helping them discover their main character vibe(s)…whatever that might be.
