You are worthy of a great

Love with an

amazing man 2

Even if you have never felt that way before, we will work together to transform your life during these three days.

It’s up to you.

During three immersive days together you will get a focused, deep-dive on your ability to attract a 5 Star Man – your ideal partner – who is ready to pursue and commit. He is emotionally available, treats you like a queen and of course, is sexy as hell.

For the FIRST time, you are going to get a 360 view of yourself so you understand what makes you irresistible to the type of man YOU desire.

Then, with that ‘diagnosis’ in hand, you will be given the exact ‘prescription’ for you to make yourself irresistible to your 5 Star Man. You’ll come away with everything you need to create a pure and natural, do-able action plan that will get you in front of the right men ….

All without having to spend hours online or having to go on a ton of time-wasting dates or feeling overwhelmed.

​​I’ll be there live in the trenches with you asking you questions you probably haven’t been asked before, strategizing, and helping you hone your most authentic self for maximum RESULTS.

In between day 2 and day 3, you’re invited to sit down with a panel of 5 Star Men so you can learn exactly how and what they think. As well as how to turn every interaction you have withquality a guy into an opportunity for them to think, “Wow! I have to know more about her” and leave them feeling desperate to see you again and again.

And the best part is you will be able to have breakthrough after breakthrough with an abundance of one-on-one laser coaching. It’s all about you!

The women who were able to use this process at the end of 2022 experienced astonishing results!

One of our clients, Elizabeth, launched right before the end of the year and met her high quality guy within a few weeks and spent New Year’s Eve with him.

After the workshop Carolyn, who launched right before the holiday, sent me an email excited about what happened after she completed the process.

Carolyn said”….I went on four dates the last week of the year and already have 2 second dates scheduled! This is working really well!”

You know you’ve got what it takes to have a great guy in your life (even if self-doubt sometimes shows up, and trust me this is normal).

IYL2023 img1

Are you ready to take back control,

be courageous and IYL

With everything at your fingertips, in the comfort of your own home, you and I will have a unique opportunity to get together with our incredible tribe of women… in total safety.

This is a 3 day experiential transformation weekend starring YOU.

Where you get to rewrite your love story, put an end to old narratives that are holding you back, and create an ending where the girl gets the guy, romance and all!

My greatest wish for you is that everything you’ve envisioned your dream man to be, becomes your reality.


Success Story
IYL2023 testi 1

I decided to attend Ignite Your Life because I felt stuck–stuck in my career, and stuck in dating men who seemed promising…only to disappear after 2-3 dates without a word.

Since attending IYL, I am no longer stuck. I am moving full-steam ahead and creating an incredible life that I’m excited and energized about. Oh, and I’m also in a pretty amazing relationship with a man who adores me.

- Kalpana S.

IYL2023 testi 2

I can’t believe how much my life has changed. I just pinch myself everyday. I’m living the life of my dreams.

My Business is going really well and I’m doing this while in a relationship…we’re having so much fun. He’s wonderful, and we’re creating a life together.

- Jennifer M.

IYL2023 testi 3

I am now in the healthiest, most committed relationship I’ve ever been in with a wonderful man. I have stronger family relationships and amazing growth in my career.

There are so many areas of my life that are successful beyond anything I could have imagined.

- Julie S.

Get What You Want From Men:


Why IYL Is



Our approach is different because we know that you can’t think your way out of your thoughts (or you would have already). An intellectual pursuit of love, full of over-thinking, rationalizing, and second-guessing… Does. Not. Work.

The problem is, most personal development programs, events, and retreats teach you mind tricks and rules to do things differently; but if in your heart you don’t feel fundamentally different, you’re not going to be able to maintain it. Your actions will feel forced and unnatural, and you’ll eventually revert back to your old ways.

That’s why you can take a class and the coach can say “Who cares if he doesn’t call? Don’t freak out…just go with the flow,” and it can make complete sense to you—until you’re in the moment. And then, all of a sudden, your knee-jerk reactions kick in and you start texting him, freaking out, and obsessing.

Those things aren’t easy and we are here to show you something that’s different and unique!

Ignite YL logo

3 Day

Process Is Different

We focus on what other coaches ignore. It’s customized for adult learners, and it’s based on the most cutting-edge neuro and behavioral science. We change the components that matter so you actually FEEL different in your body. You’re not intellectually telling yourself not to care if that guy doesn’t call: you honestly don’t care because you FEEL and BELIEVE that you don’t have to care. You know he’s not the only guy you’re ever going to get.
IYL2023 img2

This retreat is different because at the end of the weekend you’re going to know what it FEELS like to be a confident woman of value. You’ll possess the qualities great men always look for in the women they love: confidence and self-worth.

A woman who has not just vitality and success, but a woman who has the power and confidence to be vulnerable, open-hearted and authentic. A woman who is rejection proof. Feels comfortable in her own skin, even when the stakes are high and he is everything you want in a man.

Plus — and this is important — Dating with Dignity in general is different because it’s led by me—and I’ve been where you are. I’ve been married, I’ve been divorced, I’ve been in long-term relationships, and I’ve been single. I’ve been the tough girl, the co-dependent girl, the needy girl, and the party girl. Most importantly, I was the girl that didn’t believe she deserved love – and now the woman I was wouldn’t believe I could have a life this meaningful, fulfilled, sexy and fun.

When you come to the IYL retreat…

I created this live event because by being with other like-minded women who are leaders and high-achievers, women who are making a huge impact… you can learn from each other, support each other, propel each other forward and celebrate wins together.

These women all know that…

Being There Makes All

The Difference
IYL2023 testi 4

My work with Marni has deepened my relationship with myself, my family, and my boyfriend — whom I’m now engaged to!

I’ve learned to love myself and present myself to the world as an authentic, powerful, feminine woman who deserves to be seen, respected and loved unconditionally!

- Amanda D.

IYL2023 testi 5

I tried dating, I joined online programs, I read books, I went to workshops and nothing worked for me.

Working with Marni… everything is different. I love myself 100%. My health is different. I am in a long-term committed relationship and I can’t wait to continue to create our lives together.

- Anya C.

IYL2023 testi 6

I had this idea that maybe love wasn’t really for me. But as I stand here today, I can tell you every single part of my life, every relationship that I have is deeper and richer already because of the work I did with Marni.

I really understood that I was somebody’s dream girl. Just like I am. I didn’t need to be different, I didn’t need to have anything else. And lo and behold, he turned up and that’s how he sees me. I am his dream girl.

- Angie H.

Our Retreat

First of all, Ignite Your Life is experiential and interactive. Trust us, this isn’t going to be a long-ass 3 day zoom call (ugh, who wants to do that, and would we ever even be that bland and boring?! HELL NO!). This isn’t going to be a lecture-style event where you’re passively listening while you’re scrolling through social media. We are going to have fun, create massive breakthroughs in your love life, provide amazing INNOVATIVE opportunities for social interaction and community, and create deeper connections than you can even imagine possible! You’re going to feel energized, inspired, connected to a badass community, and entertained. But don’t just take it from me…here’s what our participants are saying from our last virtual event.

It felt so immersive you just completely forgot that you’re sitting in your living room or wherever you’re sitting by yourself because you really felt like you were connected into this community. You felt the energy coming through the screen. I was a hundred percent engaged the whole time. Everybody was. I think we all were blown away by how immersive it felt despite the fact that it was virtual. ~Courtney G.

I was so skeptical going into the virtual event because I’ve been on Zoom meetings and WebEx meetings 8 – 10 hours a day. From the start all my concerns were blown away. I was so happy. If you’re serious about personal growth, this is a team that delivers a program where you can see results from the work you put in. I really appreciated the weekend and it was a great experience. I’m so happy it turned out the way it did! ~Mary E.

Even though it was a virtual event, I really felt like I was there in person! I felt connected to everyone and Marni created this environment where I felt like we were all there together energetically and physically and that is absolutely incredible for a virtual event. My absolute favorite part was that the retreat was in my home. I’m usually in this little cocoon when I go to these Live Events and then I come home and everything is different. But this time the energy that was created was actually in my home and all the breakthroughs that happened happened here! Just do it. It will change your life just like it changed mine. ~Anya C.

A giant thank you to everybody who put on the event. It was absolutely incredible. I reinvented myself and I feel like I’m back on track. I felt like I was with my friends and I felt like I met a ton of new people. I’ve had several people ask me over the last few days about where I was and what I was doing and I just can’t say enough about it. I just want to say thank you. This was just one of the best things ever. Let’s do it again! ~Beth B.

Right now is actually one of the best times to find high-quality men looking for commitment and connection. The men and women dating online right now are mostly looking for the ‘real’ deal, meaning that those who were in it for hookups or something casual have mostly opted out.

High-quality men are looking for connection and the latest research confirms it.

Recent studies have found that 62% of singles are looking for meaningful, committed relationships, with more men looking for long-term relationships right now than women.

The bottom line is, our clients are creating more connections right now with quality men than ever before.

If you’re not dating right now, or don’t know how to date right now, you’re missing out.

You might be thinking to yourself…

“I know I have a lot of inner work to do and I’m not sure I’m ready to date right now. Is this the right event for me?”

The short answer is, YES, it’s perfect. The Ignite Your Life 3 Day Process will transform you into the woman that men can’t resist so that when you are ready to get out there and date, you attract quality men and succeed like never before!

Imagine this – dating will be easy from the get-go. You will breeze through the process enjoying all the quality men pursuing you while your girlfriends will still be complaining that there are no good men online and that all the good guys are taken!

Even if you have no trouble attracting men, something you’re doing is turning them off without you realizing it. The IYL 3 Day Process eliminates those tendencies and you feel an inherent change in your body, heart and soul. You literally are different so the way men act and react to you is different, as if by magic.

As with anything in life, if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. Ignite Your Life is different from anything you’ve ever done.

We use a process approach that integrates research-based interventions that are highly experiential in nature so that beliefs, feelings, and behaviors are explored holistically (i.e., the whole self – somatic, emotional, intuitive, and cognitive). It is widely recognized by brain science research that new neurological pathways will only be “recorded” if multiple aspects of the self are involved.

The bottom line is this: Therapy and personal development is fabulous, but many of our clients report that our process has moved them forward in ways they have never experienced before. They are experiencing shifts that literally catapult them to NEW levels of happiness. Our clients have found boyfriends, long-term love, increased peace and fulfillment, more optimism, a new sense of hope and the day-to-day support they never received in therapy or other personal development programs.

AND, this is not an in person retreat, which is a GOOD thing. If you are thinking a virtual event won’t create breakthroughs or you WISH it were in person, guess what…

A recent study showed that non-traditional strategies to achieve goals add their own unique component into people’s lives. So, the research SHOWS that traditional means of transformation ALONE are not optimal.

We have created a way for you to leverage new strategies for creating transformation AND get into action around it to have the best outcomes for you!

Each year thousands of women attend our group programs and events. I’d say half claim they aren’t “group people.” And yet… they love the experience.

Ignite Your Life is perfect for you especially if you’re not a “group person.” And, because you are going to be participating from home, you will be able to take breaks to recharge your batteries! I’ve seen time and time again that the women who claim they’re not “group people” get the most out of the experience. The energy, engagement, and excitement at Ignite Your Life is seriously profound and unlike anything you could ever get on your own. It’s the experience of a lifetime, and each year women walk away from this event describing it as the moment that changed everything for them: the moment they learned their true worth and the moment that led them directly to the perfect man for them.

The fact that this event takes place over a three­ day weekend is precisely the reason why we can promise such profound results.

The distractions and stress of having to work: to run your business or professional life? These things are keeping you stuck in your romantic rut. During this weekend we simply take them out of the equation so you can focus on positive change.

The data shows that without taking out time to do this work, our brains are wired to default back to old beliefs and habits. There has literally never been a better time in your life to make space to do this work.

Here’s the deal: research shows that if you don’t take action now to change your life, you probably never will.

That means you’ll be stuck with all the same problems you have right now—year after year. That’s what happens when you say things like “I can’t find the time” or “I can’t take off work.” If you want to keep making excuses, this event probably isn’t for you.

However, if you’re fed up with your situation and you want to take inspired action to change your life, you need to be at Ignite Your Life THIS YEAR—no matter how inconvenient it seems.

All you need is a computer, an internet connection, a quiet room, and your undivided attention.

No, we create a space of safety and confidentiality for all attendees and as a result, we do not record the sessions. We encourage you to attend as much as you can as it is a process-based retreat with a beginning, middle and end. Email if you have specific questions about your schedule.

Since working with you, I am in the best relationship I have ever been in — and in seven months we’re getting married in Aruba!

I used to be the girl who had the wall up so high that nobody was able to get close me. I’ve come a long way from the scared, unsure girl who first started working with you, and I’m with the most loving, trustworthy, kind man: the man of my dreams!

About Our


The truth is, the most powerful way you can amplify your ability to receive is to increase your ability to develop empathy and give back.

To date, The Institute for Living Courageously has worked with GirlNow Foundation to raise $26,000! GirlNow Foundation is our beneficiary for Ignite Your life, and this is your opportunity to invest in young girls so that they can have the opportunity to flourish into phenomenal, empowered leaders.


IYL2023 img12

It is important to me that as a generation of women, The Institute for Living Courageously and our clients continue to stand behind supporting young girls and women who are not given the same economic opportunities that we may have been given in the United States. The pandemic has proven to disproportionately and negatively affect developing countries, such as Uganda, where the GirlNow Foundation programs are run. We are proud to continue to support girls and young women at GirlNow Foundation as our beneficiary for 2022 and are excited to provide you with this amazing opportunity!

In November 2016, Joan Nabatanzi, a young Ugandan girl who grew up in the rural areas of Luwero district met Marni’s 25 year old daughter, Kloey, a young American girl passionate about girls’ rights and leadership. While Joan struggled to achieve her education as a girl living with only a mother, Kloey was privileged to grow up with her needs met in the US. Together, Joan and Kloey launched GirlNow Foundation after the egregious impact of the COVID-19 crisis negatively affecting Ugandan communities. Joan and Kloey identified the need to advance educational and economic opportunities for young women and adolescent girls in Uganda and eventually around the world.

Think back to your own struggles as a young woman and even your decision to invest in this event. Currently, there are young girls in Uganda struggling with the same problems (i.e. insecurities, not having a voice), and, in addition, they don’t have the resources to meet their basic needs.
