Laksmia Maria is a digital savvy, her entrepreneurial journey is one that is worth writing a book about.  She started working as early as age 14 in a corporate environment, she got laid off at 21 and became depressed with the situation she found herself, not able to secure a new job to take care of her needs.

It literally took about 3 years before she could get another job, surprisingly, she got fired on the exact same day she lost her very first job. (coincidence! maybe?).  She summoned courage this time however not to get depressed.

So she started to brainstorm and look around at what she could possibly do. consulting came to mind, so she kicked off and then scaled it to agency level, then incorporated coaching service in the mix.
