Marlo Rutz




"Who knew God would use Marlo to save my son. He clung to her words like a life jacket. She spoke into the soul of a person that most cannot reach."

Joyce Sankey

Home School Mother of 4 and Comedian

"Marlo provided our audience with incredible growth. The women in our audience did not want to leave because of her. Marlo is one of the best speakers I have experienced. She took the uncomfortable topics that women want to push under the rug and shed a comical and empowered light on them."

"I felt like I was chipping away at empowerment

issues with an ice pick. After working with Marlo, I now feel like I have a pickaxe."

"Marlo connected with every woman in the room. Her engaging humor, coupled with real life experiences, was a celebration to women. Marlo delivers a breath of fresh air to what it means to be a woman in this era."

"Marlo loves how the Lord moves in women's lives! She is a wonderful vessel of His, in that she shares through her writings and humor how the Lord has called herself and other women to be at their best! She brings inspiration and its refreshing!"

I became an addict in the third grade.


I was addicted to people-pleasing, worry, doubt, guilt, fear, and shame. And it continued through middle school – the years where we’re all trying to find our way. Where social boundaries are tested and you either find your grit, or you don’t.


Looking back, I realize that many women give their power away early on, and may carry on for many years with limited beliefs, such as, “I’m not good enough,” or “I’m not qualified to do that.” Sound familiar? We stifle our magnificence…and our potential.


I always wanted to find a way to help women find their voice, and remove the roadblocks that keep them from their dreams. In other words, empower them. (And sprinkle in a little light and laughter to keep it real.)


I started by coaching and mentoring young women competing in the Miss America Scholarship program -- for 30 years. More recently, I became a Certified Master Empowerment Coach, a keynote speaker, and an award-winning comedian. I’ve spoken at women conferences, churches, marketing events, Boss Babes, Gilda’s Club, Mark Ridley’s Comedy Club, S.H.E. Con, and the Christian Comedy Association national conference. My goal on stage is to share insights that help us see things differently.


And last but certainly not least, there’s my faith. It is the driving force behind everything I am, both professionally and personally.
