Mary Bicknell LCSW: 

Life & Business Strategist and Speaker 

Mary Bicknell, LCSW is President and Founder of — a company which focuses teaching women how to be BOLD in life and in business, the plan and systems follow.  She is the creator of two impactful programs.  The Big, Bold Life & Biz Method provides deep dive psychological and mindset breakthroughs for women allowing them to move through their mental B.S. (blindspots), and Master Your Money Mindset a deep dive into how your personal money story is affecting how much money you make. 

Whether marching in Washington DC for women’s rights, lobbying at the Maryland Capital for the hungry, working in the inner city ghetto in Baltimore, or providing crisis intervention in the ER at Johns Hopkins, Mary’s mission for there past 25 years, is to find a way to help people see their capabilities. She combines her years as a Clinical Social Worker and a psychotherapist with her experience as a sales and cognitive behavioral trainer to help women worldwide have all the time, money & emotional freedom they want.

Mary is a straight shooter.  Her clients tell her that she gives them a kick in the a** while giving them a hug. She believes that once you get your mental house in order, it is just a matter of creating a plan and implementing systems to achieve your goals. With time as her main driver, Mary works closely with clients to find an effective way to be brave and bold, get their B.S. (blindspot) breakthroughs done “already” so they can get on with having everything they dream about, because it is all possible. 

In addition to speaking all across the country, she gives interviews in newspapers, podcasts, summits and magazines.

On a personal note, Mary and her family moved to Portland, Oregon in 2010 when her husband, Lt. Col. John Bicknell retired from the Marine Corps. Knowing no one and not having a job or a house, they lived out their philosophy of #bebolditstime. When Mary is not busy with business, she is a mama to her 11 year old daughter, River, and a wife to John (who is her biz partner) and the wrangler to three black cats and a cute little mutt.  Mary enjoys hiking, drinking coffee over a good book, and zoning out to cooking shows.

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!
