Maria Alcoke: The Engine Mom
Maria Alcoke is host of the Engine Mom Podcast, a CrossFit-L1 trainer at CrossFit Cove in Columbia, Maryland and runs her own graphic and web development studio, MariaVida Creative.
After over 10 years in the creative field in both agency and education settings, she left the corporate world to pursue her own business right before she the birth of her daughter. Two years in to her motherhood and entrepreneurial journey, Maria has a thriving design business and has merged her passion for teaching and fitness through coaching.
Maria realized the true value of community and connection while navigating some major life transitions which included moving across the country, starting her own business and becoming a mom.
She started The Engine Mom Podcast with the goal to share different perspectives from Moms who are driven by their passions. By sharing these stories, she hopes to empower Moms from all walks of life to be their best selves by identifying what fuels them: their passions and greater purpose.
Maria is an inspiring woman and entrepreneur. She is also one of my very first Shameless Mom Mastermind members and one of my very first Shameless Mom Coaching clients. So, I’m obviously ridiculously proud of her. I can’t wait for you to hear her story. I know she will inspire you to start getting a little more uncomfortable and a lot more excited when it comes to building a life you’re really passionate about.
Listen in to hear Maria share:
- Why uncomfortable leaps and scary action steps are necessary
- What inspires her to keep following her passions and building a life around things that really cater to her strengths
- How Mondays feel when you’re not in alignment with your passion vs when you are
- How she suffers from Imposter Syndrome and what she does to overcome it
- The power of having a coach and a support system when you’re doing scary things
