Calamity to Clarity

Marsha Jacobson is the embodiment of resilience and living proof that our past doesn’t define our future. Raised by neglectful parents, she married an abusive man and agreed to move to Japan with him, isolating herself from friends and family. Finally she broke free of him and had it all—a loving second marriage, a successful career, and close friendships. Years later, deep secrets from her second husband’s past shattered her world. 

Today Marsha leads a happy, fulfilling life and is an inspiration to everyone who hears her speak. Her story is about much more than overcoming trauma. It’s about finding our resilience; developing self-confidence in our most challenging situations; and discovering our extraordinary potential, even if others try to undermine it.

Dedicated to empowering others to be their best selves, Marsha is a compelling and relatable speaker who transfixes audiences with the knowledge gained from years of research and the wisdom gained from her personal experiences.

Her bestselling memoir, “The Wrong Calamity,” is a blueprint for moving past self-defeating thoughts and behavior to a life of self-confidence, joy, success, and meaning.

We all have the power to redefine our futures.

We all possess the remarkable ability to shape and transform our destinies, not bound by our past or circumstances. Through determination, resilience, and conscious choices, we can rewrite our stories, steering our lives towards the fulfillment of our dreams and aspirations. Embracing this power empowers us to break free from limitations, overcome challenges, and craft a future filled with purpose, growth, and endless possibilities.
