Hi, I'm Maryam Grace.

Part lawyer, part coach, part entrepreneur, and ALL IN to help you build your dream life and business. I offer private and group coaching, online trainings and live events.

I help individuals and solopreneurs like you:

✔️Understand the role that energy plays in your performance and how to use your energetic profile to meet your goals

✔️Build, setup and protect your brand

✔️Implement tools and strategies to sustain results

I've created Zen & Grey to be a space where you can access a variety of offerings and resources to grow both personally and professionally. So often people new to personal and professional development have the drive and desire to accomplish specific goals but struggle with the setup and execution.

That's where I come in! Whether you're an aspiring high performer or a new or aspiring solopreneur, you will need a foundation on which to build your goals. I help you with the starting out steps so that you can focus on what matters.


Check in and Ask Yourself:

  • How much time have you spent contemplating your goals instead of acting on them?
  • How many "experts" have you let steer the wheel only to find out you don't like the way they drive?
  • How much have you invested in courses and programs that you never completed?
  • How often do you feel stuck or behind on your goals?

I remember being a beginner myself and flailing for years before figuring out a process that anyone can use for creating personal and business goals.

A process that helps you overcome the 5 primary obstacles that tend to stop your progress:

✦  Time  ✦  Energy   ✦  Know-how   ✦  Overwhelm   ✦  Fear


How? We start with 3 foundations:

CLARITY: Identify your mission, your brand and your personal and business values, and how they are working/not working with your goals. Understand how the way you are showing up in the main areas of your life and career is hindering you and how you can transform your thoughts, behavior and energy to get what you want

COMPETENCE: Get the structure and systems for your self-development and solopreneur startup steps. Once you understand your energetic profile, it changes the game for you in terms of time management, productivity, and results.

CONFIDENCE: Produce lasting results. Get accountability. Measure your progress. Stay committed to finish what you start.

"You don't have to do it all alone!"

Sometimes we just need someone objective to stand outside of our ''problems'' and confusion and help us navigate the waters—not forever—just through a foundational period. That's what a good coach does. 

Both as a lawyer and coach, I've spent the majority of my life learning how to ask the right questions to get answers in the shortest amount of time. Learning how to listen for the truth—How to hear both what is being said and what isn't being said. To read between the lines. To detect excuses and BS. To advocate for others. We both know you're ready to grow. You have so much potential. Maybe you just don't know how or where to start. Or how to harness your energy at your highest capability. Staying stuck is a choice. Staying overwhelmed is a choice. DIYing it by yourself (knowing that it will make the process longer with more of a learning curve) is a choice.

I'm not here to judge your choices or to rate them! I'm here to help you cut through what's getting in the way and to help you get clear and focused on growing a life and business you love.

So who am I and how did I get here?

My mission is to live my life for the betterment of others. For as long as I can remember, I've immersed myself in personal and professional growth. I was never one of the "cool kids" who thrived on a sports team or rocked the latest trends. I was the girl who usually got picked last in gym, participated in mock trial tournaments, performed in Shakespeare competitions and attended nerdy leadership camps during summer breaks. I was always fascinated by leadership, communication, confidence, productivity and creativity. Today, I can share all of that without feeling embarrassed. Because I can look back and see that there has always been a unifying thread of growth, curiosity and knowledge connecting all of my seemingly unconnected interests.

Everything in that thread leading up to Zen & Grey prepared me for sharing this work with others:

Acting and theatre from a young age forced me to be fully expressed and seen by others (a nightmare for introverts like me!). It taught me how to fail in front of a crowd of strangers when I forgot lines but to keep going.

Studying the post-war peace and conflict resolution process in the Balkans humbled me and introduced me to the art of communication in deescalating conflict and healing trauma.

My first job as a program director for a leadership conference for thousands of high school students trained me in curating and executing impactful educational events and in community building

 Then came years of practice as a trial lawyer, where I immersed myself in the art of asking questions, negotiation and communication. I taught trial advocacy and public speaking to law students. And copyright and brand protection to entrepreneurs.

I realized that I did not fit neatly into a corporate box and that nothing brings me more fulfillment than helping others learn and grow. So I completed an intensive training with IPEC and got certified as a professional coach. Zen & Grey is the intersection of my passions and expertise.

Years ago, when I first decided to become a coach, I was met with SO MUCH skepticism. I felt overwhelmed by all the ‘’rules’’ I was expected to follow. I experienced imposter syndrome. I panicked when a famous coach told me my business idea would never work. All I wanted was someone to help me create my vision—not place limitations and judgments on what the vision was!

I got tired of having gurus and experts tell me what I could/couldn’t do.
I got tired of others judging me for having a creative side hustle.
I got tired of playing safe and small.

We are all multi-faceted beings who do not have to confine ourselves to traditional ‘’black or white”/ ‘’should/shouldn’t’’ thinking. We simply have to tap into our highest potential and learn the right systems to produce the results we want in our lives and business. I’d be honored to help you do just that.
