Hey there! I'm Marissa Brassfield, founder and work-life muse of Ridiculously Efficient®.
I'm a consultant (i.e. secret weapon) for visionary entrepreneurs addressing billion-person problems like education, hunger and housing.
In over a decade of working with world-renowned CEOs and building elite teams, I've learned the habits and success principles that separate "busy yet talented people with potential" from "visionary leaders who are changing the world AND enjoying their lives."
Along the way, I've dropped my 6-day, 60+ hour workweeks (with the expectation of 24/7 responsiveness) down to about 20 fully engaged hours a week.
The secrets of lasting high performance -- and freedom of time -- are the same for you and me as they are for self-made centimillionaires and billionaires:
My "why" is to inspire a higher operational standard. And my mission is to personally mentor a million ambitious professionals and help them achieve the time freedom they desire. I believe that we become Ridiculously Efficient when we've aligned work and life to leverage our individual superpowers, and our relationship with time changes as a natural byproduct of this connected alignment.
Here's what you'll get from me in this community:
You'll also have access to my tribe of high performers from around the world, each with their own passions and superpowers.
The insider knowledge, experience-based wisdom and elite mentorship within this private community will help you level up every aspect of your life... if you're bold enough to accept the challenge of participating.

“Marissa has changed my life. Dead serious. I’m personally working more efficiently and feeling more energized at work. I’ve been inspired to optimize a long-term strategy for my foundation by leveraging technology and community. My confidence as a leader has improved because I no longer feel alone — I feel empowered and supported. All of this, because I invested in the Ridiculously Efficient community and began implementing Marissa’s strategies and tactics I’ve learned from other members. The mindset reinforcement alone makes this investment an automatic HELL YES for any growth-oriented professional."

"It is not every day that we cross paths with someone whose vision is so sharp and well formulated that it can change the way we see things. That is exactly what happened to me when Marissa Brassfield and her Ridiculously Efficient platform came into my life. Whenever I encounter a professional situation that has me feeling stuck or unsteady, Marissa is a source I can turn to for clarity and guidance. She has an awe-inspiring way of helping me focus on key takeaways, while I successfully let go of the rest. Marissa and her RE community have helped me launch a successful freelance career, and have given me the courage to embrace my entrepreneurial spirit. I don't know where I would be without her."
