What is The Awakened Business Academy?


The Awakened Business Academy (ABA) empowers heart-centered entrepreneurs and purpose-driven businesses with strategies that bridge heart-intelligence, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and authentic leadership to activate prosperity and be of service to the world in a way that lights you up!


ABA is designed to lead you back to a life and business where you’re clear, energized and abundant by accessing the innate wisdom of the heart. To manifest and call into fruition your desires to make the world a better place with a soulful strategy that avoids stress, burnout and overwhelm. 


ABA is an 8-week, LIVE, online experiential experience that guides you through an in-depth exploration of all aspects of life and business, to ensure the blueprint you are creating for the year is holistic and strongly emphasizes the personal wellbeing of yourself and the stakeholders of your company.


Inside the Awakened Business Academy 




For your life and business. The wisdom you uncover and the feelings connected will become the animating spirit of all your decisions. Inner attunement before outer attainment. Heart-centered, feelings before goals.



Bring to light the common threads that are interrupting the energetic flow of your heart’s desires and discover several modalities to easily implement in everyday life. Set healthy boundaries and master the art of saying no to make space for your future. Exfoliate what isn’t serving you and the new vision for your life and business. 



Reconnect with your divine purpose by creating nourishing thought forms with intentional choices that honor your heart’s intelligence. A shift from fear to love. From scarcity to abundance. From overwhelm to clarity. From stress to joy. 



With your heart as the GPS, we’ll create a holistic view of your business for the year and a detailed 90-day plan. A reliable road map that will keep you in alignment with how you want to feel, including the meaningful actions and goals to get you there. 



Everyone needs a team of warriors to back them. Participants will collaborate and network to develop a support system - spiritual and physical, for cheerleading, education, mentoring, and guidance.

Bonus Trainings






A heart-centered, strengths-based strategic planning technique that will capitalize on your strengths and acknowledge the abundance of opportunities before you.



Make money while you sleep! Heart-centered entrepreneurship is allowed to be easy. And, the more money you make, the more you have to give! 



Go deep and do the inner work. It’s a practice, and we need to learn how to release, cut cords, forgive and move on. Liberate yourself from the past to uplevel your business and your life. 



The ego can be a little trixter when you declare changes to the Universe. Build a better relationship with the ego and fear so you can stay connected with your heart and shift back into the vibration of love. 



Quality. Purity. A bona fide tool for emotional support as you navigate the changes required to revolutionize your business.  



Self-limiting beliefs keep us playing small and create energy blocks that stop us from being in-flow with the Universe. In this recorded live webinar, we will uncover the 3 major self-limiting beliefs in business and how the Awakened Business Advantage can help transform them.



Ever notice how it's so easy to explain what someone else does, but not yourself? As spiritual beings having a human experience, we have a hard time owning our strengths and proudly sharing that with the world.

In this session, I will walk you through how to craft your message with the heart so you can confidently share your message.

Why we do what we do and our story is how we authentically attract our ideal clients. This session will guide you to articulate who you are and why you do it.

“ABA (formerly the Desire Map for Business) workshop was a jam packed day of review and contemplation of my business to uncover the layers into the knowing of what feelings I most want to experience each day.  The resulting clarity through a list of core desired feelings and goals with soul will launch this next chapter for me! The authentic facilitation with ease and heart that Ann Marie brings into every experience shows me by example that living by your heart and knowing your core desired feelings will propel us to grow into our own best lives with soul felt experiences!”

Shannon Kerr

“This was exactly the goal-setting firestarter that I was looking for.  Working through all the different areas of my business to become fully aware of what's working and what's not - I came home feeling much more confident about my abilities and accomplishments, along with a list of goals and core desired feelings. AnnMarie is a riveting speaker, who draws from her past experiences along with all the work she's done with past clients.  Her honesty and positivity is so refreshing.  She's great at getting to the heart of what you're feeling, and helping you draw out what you're missing in your goals.”

Make decisions aligned with your heart for confidence and ease.

When you’re disconnected from your heart, it’s easy to lose sight of why you wanted to start your business in the first place.

Strategies that backfire, embracing business models made for someone else, and trying to do all the things, all the time takes its toll.

ABA will bring joy back into your business model by unveiling the strengths and opportunities the Universe has gifted to you.


Soulful Strategist + Transformation Guide for Life and Business

From owning a private school to leading not-for-profits to multi-level marketing companies, I have certainly seen and experienced my fair share of business models. And although some of the businesses that I founded or managed were ‘successful’, they were all missing one key component...

…..the heart and its intelligence. 

The business world has operated far too long within the confines of a masculine model. Gone are the days of ignoring the ‘soft skills’ and the feminine aspects that create a well-balanced workplace that honors both people AND profits. 

That is why I birthed the Awakened Business Academy. I am passionate about helping conscious business owners and entrepreneurs build a handcrafted life and business you always dreamed of, with guidance and support on multiple levels to amplify your impact on the world, intentionally and sustainably. 

The question is, are you ready to integrate the intelligence of the heart into your business practices for lasting change and transformation?





"Picture heart intelligence as the flow of awareness, understanding, and intuitive guidance we experience when the mind and emotions are brought into coherent alignment with the heart. This intelligence steps down the power of love from the universal source into our life’s interactions in practical, approachable ways that inform us of a straighter path to our fulfillment." 

Doc Childre, HeartMath Founder and Co-CEO

"I joined ABA because I wanted to set myself and my business up for a fabulous year, one that aligned with my highest aspirations and vibrations. I needed a catalyst to help me dig a little deeper. Working with Ann Marie and within a group structure and a tight timeline offered a real solution to keep me accountable.
Greatest takeaways: It's right to follow my feelings even when I have hesitations and doubts. Feelings are where it's at. Essentially we all want to be happy. Core feelings and the rituals and processes surrounding the development of and daily reflection on these feelings are integral to becoming the best possible version of ourselves. Ritual is powerful. Energy is important. Tune in.
Ann Marie walks the walk. She's a seeker on a journey just like the rest of us and she models the methods she's teaching. Her honesty and vulnerability are powerful inspirations to follow our hearts, our feelings so that we can move into living in a way that honors our soul. I appreciate Ann Marie's wise and loving way of gently guiding me and others to our authentic selves. Her manner of providing space for others to be witnessed with kindness allows for the freedom and security necessary for deep learning, the processing of old patterns, and beautiful healing. Ann Marie is like a personal guide to your actual self."

Cathy Goddard, a timeless legend in her field, attended The Desire Map for Business to shift her solopreneur mindset and think about business differently. Here is what she had to say about her experience:

“I attended ABA (formerly the Desire Map for Business) to get new techniques and basically, to ensure that my business is on the right path. As a long-time entrepreneur, it was time for me to move out of my comfort zone and think things through differently. This workshop provided the introspective tools - and clarity - to get me there. Ann Marie McKenzie did an incredible job facilitating a bunch of fabulous and diverse entrepreneurs and I have no doubt everyone left with renewed energy to accomplish their goals.”

Amber Turnau

Co-Founder Substrate Studios

"When you provide a service for a living, you often put your clients first and forget about the needs of your own business. Taking these precious few hours in this workshop helped me reconnect with my core feelings and align them with our business. I gave myself the freedom and space to envision my ideal entrepreneurial life and put a practical plan in place to feel the way I want to feel with our business each and every day. 

"Ann Marie pays careful attention to the atmosphere she's manifesting in the workshop room and we could really feel a positive energy shift occur throughout the morning. Ann Marie is a breath of fresh air and I'm so grateful to have done this workshop with her."
