Introduce yourself
I’m Marlary a licensed and in-depth financial professional with over ten years of business, financial management, and banking experience.
As a first-generation African Immigrant mom, I have earned a reputation as a reliable business consultant and independent resource on personal and small-business credit within my community. My current role as a CEO and Co-founder of Redeem Services LLC enables me to develop educational programs and content for small business owners to thrive and build wealth. I am on a MISSION to Serve!
Let’s talk about your journey to where you are today. What were some of the biggest obstacles you faced and how did you overcome them?
My journey of helping other women start and become successful in business is festinating. Through my program, over 40 women have overcome the lack of resources and their money-mindset blocks and gained clarity on the next steps to take in order to start, scale, and get access to startup and growth funds for their businesses. Most women working with me will tell you they now have the understanding and business strategies and are showing up for their best-next level, in business compliance, going from accessing less in business funding (LOANS & GRANT) to 0ver 30k to 200k.I had a full-time job, but I put in my mental resignation over a billionth time without taking any actions but instead googling how-to’s business topics that became even more and more confusing. I had to learn the hard way. I would have saved myself money, time, and brain power on reaching my business six to 8 figures goals way sooner than going the cheap route. It sure became clear to me that “cheap is way more expensive.Experience taught me that, the way you run your business will influence the lifestyle you’re aiming for. Immediately, DIYs went out of the window. For my business and brand to be taken seriously, I decided to make a responsible decision and do things the right way. So, I got myself the appropriate strategists and mentors, used my commercial banking and finance background, monetized my valuable corporate skills, and scaled my empire.
I’m a big believer in work-life balance. How do you manage to stay grounded and connected to your personal life while pursuing your professional goals?
My family is a huge part of my existence. As a mother to five children, I have to master the act of effective time management. Having the opportunity of working from home, although it has up’s and down’s, has enabled me be present and fulfilled in my personal life while pursuing my professional goals. For that I’m grateful!
We often hear about the importance of work-life balance, but it can be hard to achieve in practice. How do you make time for the things that matter most to you outside of work?
I make time for regular church services, play dates with the kids and date nights with my husband by marking these times as high priorities as networking events and work. My calendar is marked as routines.
It’s always interesting to hear about the people who have influenced and inspired us. Who are some of the most important role models in your life?
Influence for me is a quicksand. I am still finding that path or person. But Inspiration definitely comes from my mother and the environment I grow up in.
Let’s talk about your values. What are some of the core beliefs that guide your decision-making and actions?
I am a Born-Again Christian who holds a solid believe in Christ Jesus his life and ministry on earth. I trust every teaching of God from the Bible as my guide to life. 
We all have hobbies and passions that bring us joy and fulfillment outside of work. What are some of yours, and how have they enriched your life?
I love to sing and dance. Being a worship minister, brings me so much joy and has enriched my entire life.
Let’s talk about self-care. What are some of the practices or routines you have in place to prioritize your own well-being?
Self-care for me, is what brings me peace of mind during that period of my life. I do not tend to overthink it. Because a majority point of my life, self-care was me walking away. while, now, self-care is me just paying more attention to my skin and hair, getting my nail done or having a glass of wine. One thing I can tell you, my peace of mind is my human right.
The world can be a challenging place, and sometimes it’s hard to stay positive and focused on our goals. How do you stay motivated and resilient in the face of adversity?
I pray. I have a strong believe in God and his instructions in Habakkuk 2:2 “Write the vision and make it plan.”
I believe a significant amount of planning plus prayer and faith does Magic! that’s how I stay motivated and resilient in the face of adversity.
Let’s talk about your upbringing. What were some of the most important values or lessons you learned from your family or community growing up?
I’ve learned that no condition is permanent, and that life is so meant to be lived in its’s simplest form. I grew up as a refugee kid. But my childhood is one of the happiest memories of my life.
As someone who has accomplished a lot in your life, what advice would you give to someone just starting out on their own journey?
My advice to them would be, do not try to reinvent the wheels. Find mentors who successful in those things you hope to achieve. Make yourself teachable, and wisdom will flow through you. 
As someone who has experienced success in multiple areas of your life, how do you define success for yourself?
Success for me is leaving a legacy. Having the opportunity to reinvent my growing self and living to see my kids live in their purpose.
I’m a big believer in the power of gratitude. What are some of the things you’re most grateful for in your life right now?
I am grateful for many answers prayers; peace of mind, my family, connections and more.
We all have moments where we feel like we’re in a rut or not making progress. How do you break out of those patterns and stay focused on your goals?
From my growth perspective, looking at me now, most times, I give myself permission to go on withdrawal breaks without any guilt. But with a time, firm. 
Let’s talk about mentorship. Have you had any mentors or advisors who have had a significant impact on your life or career?

This right here is one of my TRUTH!!! I have learned so well that my professional growth has not been friends, family, or colleagues.
My network is what I am currently working on.
As someone who has achieved a lot in your career, how do you handle criticism or setbacks? Can you share an example of a time when you faced a major challenge and how you overcame it?
My transition from the West africa to the USA was huge. The societal change as well as cultural differences was a challenge that I have learned to mitigate with great observation and openminderness.
