Mary Bicknell:

M.S.W.,  Life & Business Strategist, Mentor and Speaker


Mary Bicknell, M.S.W. is a speaker, mentor and life & business strategist for women. Mary resonates with the woman who is ready to get unSTUCK. Her clients are women who want to create the life and biz that gives her all the money and time freedom to do whatever the hell she wants, whenever the hell she wants to….all guilt free.

Living unapologetically, wanting what you want and getting it….is what freedom is all about. No longer do women have to live by an outdated “hard work” definition. Her clients started their businesses for a reason….to have emotional, money and time freedom.

Otherwise they would have stayed in a job!!


Mary combines her years of experience as a psychotherapist with her extensive knowledge of sales and business to support female business owners and entrepreneurs. Her goal with her clients is to act as a mentor and strategist so they can reach heights in their business they barely allowed themselves to dream.


Her clients often say she kicks them in the butt all while giving them a hug.


She takes a stand for women designing their lifestyles first and then building their biz around it. She knows in order to get what you want in life you must be B.O.L.D.

Brave. Outgoing. Leader. Decisive.

She is the creator of The Big, Bold Life & Biz Method a program touching on both life and business.


Everyone can apply The Method.


As entrepreneurs, we wear many hats. Our personal lives and our business lives overlap. The Method not only teaches life strategies and mindset breakthroughs, but hard core, must do business planning and systems.

Using her proven Method to increase her own business 450% in a single year, Mary proves that building a successful business can be done without all of the stereotypical “hard work”. Creating a plan, implementing systems to support the plan and having big mindset breakthroughs are the very foundation for super success.

Demanding lots of free time and big financial freedom, Mary works when she wants, creating a FREEDOM SCHEDULE while still earning multiple 6 figures. Her priority is to be a hands on mama to her daughter 11 year old, River and have plenty of time and energy for her business partner and dreamboat hubby, John.

Whether it is marching for women’s rights in Washington D.C., teaching on a Facebook Live or speaking from stage, Mary has always taken a stand for women becoming brave and bold so they can have extraordinary lives.

“Life isn’t waiting around for you to get it all together, it’s marching forward with OR without you.  Nothing feels worse than to not live out those dreams you have been carrying around….maybe for years. It’s not as hard as you think….I PROMISE!”

Mary Bicknell delivers in spades! As a speaker myself and a program organizer I know what it takes to both educate and entertain. Mary spent time getting to know the audience before she ever got on stage, and she had everyone engaged throughout the whole talk. Thank you Mary for serving our audience at such a high level! You rock! Kris Prochaska, MA
