You Will Accomplish Nothing If You Don’t Get Started!

 Drawing on Wendy Marman’s research, fascinating examples, insight, broad experience, and unique personal stories, Ready Set Start guides the reader to understand the power of a great start or, sometimes, a great restart! Wendy teaches you how to create and hold a vision of what your life could be and how to move past the roadblocks and setbacks that occur when starting something new.

Success is a journey, not a destination! Ready Set Start: Navigating Your Success is the field book you need to travel your journey in alignment with who you are, what you stand for and the best you that you are designed to become.

The Secret to Making Your Dreams Happen Is To Start

In Ready Set Start, you will learn on your journey how to start well to:

  • Create your success and pursue what matters in your life
  • Harness and build your strengths to achieve your dreams
  • Overcome struggles – the key to achieving a life you are proud of
  • Build a community of support
  • Develop your leadership skills.

Whether you’re an employee or entrepreneur, retired, or just starting your career, this book offers an invaluable pathway for your success.

Until now, there has never been a book written about the importance of “Starting Well to End Well,” yet failing to start on the right foot is why most people fail to create the change they want in their lives.

Read Set Start: Navigating Your Success answers the questions of “Why and where do I start?”


Get ready to stretch your mind and heart to make the rest of your life the best of your life.

Wendy Marman’s READY SET START is a must read page turner. If you have ever felt alone, in a dark place, uncertain, insecure, insignificant or not enough then this is the book for you.

I frequently ask myself, “Why am I here?” However, after reading READY SET START I found the better questions to ask myself are, “Who am I here for?” and “How can I get started?”

I love an adventure and I love my family, so much so that adventure is one of our family values. My husband and I have been married for over 40 years. I’m a mum of 4 wonderful adults and grandma to a cuddle of adventurous grandchildren.

My life long love of adventure and a curious growth mindset has led me to complete a private pilot’s licence, travel widely, live and work in South America, Asia and the Pacific, and to continuously learn and do new things. I love the mountains and the sea and the great outdoors. But I also love reading, the Sound Of Music and watching Agatha Christie.

My passion to serve has guided me to work with not for profits, develop leadership training, co-found a leadership network for high school girls and work in a wide range of family-related ministries, from hands on to boardmember.

Talking with Wendy I am more comfortable with who I am and where I am now in my life. I am a happier person because of her coaching.
