As your Microsoft 365 Magician, I take the stress and jargon away from the task of bringing order and automation to your business, by taking your ideas and turning them into aligned and functional systems that you can confidently use!


systems and processes don't have to be complicated, overwhelming, or full of tech-heavy jargon and steps



You're a professional. And you know what you are doing - you need to, in order for your business to keep going!

Up until now, you have taught yourself what you've needed, to make all of the emails, automations, documents and spreadsheets that keep you running your business work...but they are definitely still missing that something that makes them feel easy, connected, and intuitive.

It's exhausting, right? Not to mention stressful keeping across all those different logins! Ain't nobody got time for that!

What you want, and need, is a way to see how to better use what you already have - or someone you can trust to come in and give you something that works, and makes sense, so you can get on with what you actually need to get done for your clients!

Let's get you thriving!

Hi there - I'm Marianne (or Maz)

In case we haven't already connected, I'm the owner, Magic Maker and problem solver here at Thrive. Officially, I'm a systems and processes Online Business Manager (OBM), specialising in Microsoft 365. I'm also certified in some other useful programs like Simplero and Mailchimp. 

For years, I worked in corporate administration roles (I worked at every level of admin from reception through to 1:1 Executive Assistant to C-Suite types!). No matter what role I had, I was the problem solver, the 'make it happen' person, when it came to documents, spreadsheets, presentations and systems.

All of this (last-minute, urgent, insane expectation level) experience has shown me that that it's possible to do some incredible things within the tools you already have access to. I know that with a little know-how, you can confidently manage your business and wow clients using practical, common-sense tools that align with how you like to work, and what your clients need!
