We all have a focus problem.

The constant barrage of distractions, social pressure to always be doing something fun and interesting, and a societal celebration of busyness has left us vulnerable. We waste time, we allow relationships to languish, and, most disappointingly, we fail to pursue our true life-purpose.

All because we fail to recognize that the key to becoming our best self is focus.

The Focus Factor, our 6-week on-line program, will teach you foundational techniques to develop and sustain a purpose-driven focus. There are thousands of programs, pills, and tricks available to help you focus, but they what they fail to do, is to get down to the nitty gritty issue, the infrastructure of how our brains work, and how we can reprogram.

Based on the MAPS philosophy, The Focus Factor will help you: (these need to be imbedded into the 4 practices below, and addressing them below) Whats here needs to match below.

  • Break free from social and societal traps(including your digital addiction) that lead you to spend your precious time and energy in ways that do not serve your purpose

  • Work productively and with meaning, but in a way that does not consume you

  • Create time for what’s most important to you and stop wasting time on things that are not

  • Reduce anxiety levels, rekindle and sustain your important relationships, and live more intentionally

  • Stop operating on auto-pilot so you can accomplish what you want in life — without being a jerk

The Focus Factor will give you a set of fundamental and practical tools that will help you find focus in a big-picture, what-do-you-want-from-life sort of way, as well as help you successfully cope with the daily distractions that are a part of modern life so that you can live the life you desire and become the best you possible.

Is a Lack of Focus Keeping You From Achieving Everything You Want? It's time to break through the steady stream of distractions keeping you from becoming the best you possible. The Focus Factor™ is The MAPS Institute's new 6-week online program that will help you:
- Understand the brain science that explains how you‘ve undermined past attempts to improve your focus — and how to use that knowledge to rewire your brain
- Learn the specific choices you can make and actions you can take to slowly, but consistently turn your brain into a focus machine
- Layer specific tactics and tools on top of these foundational activations to channel and direct your focused energy so that you can achieve the life you want

Dina-Marie unleashes the leadership abilities of creatives, entrepreneurs, and business vagabonds who affect social change through innovation, seek success on their own terms, and don’t shy away from the proverbial spotlight while cherishing the intentionally slowed-down moment of solitude. A musical-theater veteran and entrenched with the classical music industry, her clients begin to step into the spotlight of their own possibilities as she lovingly pushes them to design a bold future where their personal lives are no longer the sacrificial lamb of their professional success.

When humans commit to working with Dina-Marie, they realize the vision they are driven by, seeking to live and affect change from the inside out. As clients courageously jump into the unknown, dare to dream bigger, and love more deeply than ever before, Dina-Marie submits that a scared heart offers more intimately experienced love than a forever-protected one. So, together, they identify the most daring and frightening dreams and reveal a path towards realizing them. In doing so, they are kept company by serious humor, fierce commitment, and easeful tenacity. The outcomes are manyfold; personal, professional, and financial. As clients create a multi-faceted life, one question is omnipresent: “What does your business have to do for you?”

A native of Leipzig/Germany, former transplant to Los Angeles, and perpetual traveler at present, Dina-Marie’s company is completely remote while it lends the flexibility to regularly meet with clients for in-person experiences around the world. Her vision is fueled by her arts administration background, notably with the Detroit Symphony, The Sphinx Organization, the Segerstrom Center, and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. In Germany, she served as Executive Director of musica assoluta, a Hanover-based orchestra, and supports the planning of the annual German Orchestras’ Conference. Click here to visit her website.
