Today we’d like to introduce you to Marisa Kompar.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Our mission is to inspire people to live holistically. We believe in caring for your self through actively listening to your body and intuition. We create our natural products essential oils, minerals and other ingredients from the earth that offer your body what it needs throughout the day to achieve it’s potential.

We enjoy connecting with you daily to share our experiences, as well as educate those who strive to live holistically. Through m+a naturals, we open the doors to bring kindness, positivity and love to all. Calm your mind and you let your intuition guide you. be love | be you | be one.
Many people go through life comfortably and don’t bother stepping out of this said, “comfort zone”. My life was completely altered one winter afternoon, as my husband was fatally hit in an accident in Manhattan. My world stopped for a moment; that’s when I felt my breath, I relied on my breath to get me through the first week. Soon after his passing, I focused on my journey of life, I focused on my boys. I discovered meditation and yoga became a part of me. After yoga my life opened, I began feeling more clarity and following my intuition. I felt love, I was love and I was in love. Love became my beacon, my guide and it was that beacon that led me to become a founder of m+a naturals. My late husband’s love for us and his passion to work for himself (while brief) led me to pursue m+a naturals; he too, was a small business owner and showed great passion and dedication. I hope to instill my boys with that same drive and determination that led me to m+a. I was motivated by his passing (or one could argue I was led by him) to pursue something that inspired me to make healthy, happy choices.
Has it been a smooth road?
If I could give young women any advice when starting their own business is… to truly believe in yourself. Do not let others get to you with their doubts and to go for it! Follow your intuition and believe in yourself.
I find that I do not have enough time in my day. I like to make a list of things I’d like to get done for each day at the beginning of the week. I find this to be the most helpful. Trying to raise my boys, care for the home, self care and other daily to do’s makes it challenging, but it’s so worth it to have time to live in the present.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with m+a naturals – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We started m+a naturals to share our love for honest, natural and effective products to inspire holistic living. We believe in ethically sourced materials and ingredients that can be trusted. It’s our mission at M+A naturals to curate products that will improve the lives of others, as they did ours and reduce our carbon footprint.
We create skincare and home cleaning products. our products are cruelty, chemical and preservative free.
Our products are handmade by us. Each product is made in small batches.
Do you think there are structural or other barriers impeding the emergence of more female leaders?
Aligning with our mission, meeting other entrepreneurs and women in the industry; we want to instill in women that they can be leaders, we want women to rise up in leadership. Now is the time to do this, the present moment is all that we ever have; let’s do this together.
It’s important to find women who are also small business owners so that, you can share ideas and form a bond with one another. We are building a community of these women right here in Phoenix and the surrounding area and it feels amazing to connect with like minded individuals who believe in themselves and push forward through certain “stigmas” that we face.
