Mariana Kobayashi Career Coach

Mariana Kobayashi Career Coach

I started working when I was 10 and created my first 🥞 business at 14.  My past experiences with start-ups & Fortune 500s have made me realize that my passion is Social Entrepreneurship: creating and managing digital products. My mission is to make people feel they are not alone.  Sharing my journey, one day at a time.

🇵🇹 Portugal Native, with a mix of 🇯🇵 Japanese, 🇱🇧 Lebanese and 🇬🇳 Guinean backgrounds.

👩‍🎓 Graduated with a Double BSc Degree: BS in Economics and Finance & BA in International Business.

🚀  I am building Ready2Start, a startup accelerator for aspiring entrepreneurs, and Startup Jobs, the place for start-up jobs in Portugal.

👩🏻‍💻 I am a Career Consultant for Wonsulting and I help people land dream  jobs at marianakobayashi.com

🧠  I create weekly content on LinkedIn and Youtube, where I share  takeaways of my non-linear career journey and experiences with rejection and impostor syndrome. I have helped 250+ people with LinkedIn reviews/  job searches.

🏔 I’m an avid traveler  (backpacked 30+ countries and counting) and enjoy focusing my energy (meditation), learning  (currently Web Development and French), reading self-development books  and exercising (🏃🏽‍♀️, 🚴‍♀️, 🏄🏻‍♀️).

𝗙𝘂𝗻 𝗙𝗮𝗰𝘁𝘀:
🧘‍♀️ Spent 10 days without speaking, living with Buddhist monks & meditating 12 hours a day.
🌍 Took a Gap Year after college for mental clarity (worked in Guinea, volunteered in Iceland, lived on a farm, etc.).
🏆 Attempted a Guinness World Record & created the first mental health network for sports in Portugal.
