PLOT (Progressive Leaders of Today) members are meeting at Penny Lane Pub on Wednesday, November 16th for "Local Leader Spotlight". This great event highlights CT's "self-built" successful professionals and entrepreneurs in a Q&A format. This month's leader is Best Selling Author, Mary Marantz.
Author, speaker, and podcast host, Mary Marantz, grew up in a single-wide trailer in rural West Virginia. The first of her immediate family to go to college, she went on to earn a law degree from the nation's top-ranked law school, Yale. After ditching six-figure-salary law firm offers in London and New York, she started a business with her husband, Justin. Together they have built a successful online education platform for creative entrepreneurs. She is also the host of the highly ranked and popular podcast The Mary Marantz Show. Mary released her debut book, "Dirt: Growing Strong Roots in What Makes the Broken Beautiful," in September of 2020. She lives in an 1880s fixer-upper by the sea in New Haven, Connecticut, with her husband, Justin and their two very fluffy golden retrievers, Goodspeed and Atticus.
