Do you know what behavior is standing in the way of you being seen or heard at work?


Do you find yourself feeling like you have to constantly prove your value? Do you struggle to make your voice heard?  Or do you worry that your team does not like or respect you?

You are not alone.

Many of the women that I have worked with struggle with feeling valued in the work place. Sometimes, a simple shift in language is all that is required. Other times, digging into the energy of past traumas and learning how to manage and release their energetic triggers allows inspiration and confidence to flow freely.

Shifting from the old paradigm into a new paradigm of leadership IS possible.  It is leading from a place of Innate Wisdom.  It is compassion and strength, acceptance and discernment, open-hearted and boundaries. 

Whatever is stopping you from becoming the leader you know you can be, I can help you.  Are you ready to feel valued and empowered? Come reclaim your Inner Divine Feminine and become the CEO of your own life.


I empower women who struggle with their careers to release past traumas and reclaim their divine feminine power so that they can become the CEO of their own lives.


YES! You can become the CEO of your own Life!


Inspiration: the greatest mark of a leader.

We are wired for love and compassion. When we tap into this inner place, we become more balanced within our sacred masculine and feminine energies.  This then allows us to tap into compassion AND authority, kindness AND assertiveness, caring AND courage.  It is from this place that we can truly inspire others.

Do you know what behavior is standing in the way of you being seen or heard?

Do you feel small and unimportant? Or do you spend your day worrying about what others think? Are your boundaries clearly defined? For you? For your colleagues? Do you spend countless hours comparing yourself to someone else?

Or do you criticize and micro-manage?  Do you judge harshly when others make a mistake?  Are you afraid of giving other's credit?

These questions are just some that lead to a discovery of distorted behavior, energies that can be shifted so that you can step fully into your power, your leadership.

Yes! You can Become the CEO of your own Life By Stepping into Your Essence.

“Throughout centuries, women have been trained to give away their power. René Murata taught me how to reclaim my power. As a result, I stopped over-giving and under-earning! Thank you René!”

I'm Rene' Murata.

Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CEO Essence

I always felt like an outsider. 

I knew that I wanted more than what the other girls said they wanted. I wanted to do something meaningful, something powerful, create change, be a change agent.  So, when they talked about going shopping…again, I couldn’t relate.  

In my heart, I knew that there was more to life.  

During my early years, I developed the habit of observing others in leadership.  I categorized behaviors by what I liked and what I didn’t like.  I also developed the practice of looking at my life to see where I could improve my behavior based on those observations.  When someone treated me poorly or I saw them treat another person poorly or in a way that made the other person feel small, I looked within to see if I had similar behaviors, if I also treated people poorly.  Conversely, if I was treated well or saw someone treating another person in a way that empowered them, I looked to see if I had that quality and if not, went about learning how to develop it.

Another habit that I developed early in life is to look for the opportunities that arose out of the challenges that came forward in life.  I won’t say that always saw the opportunities immediately, but I will say that I have learned to look for the lesson sooner now, rather than later.  

I am thankful to have developed those practices early.  They have served me well.  When working with or for other people, as I have used that information to forge my leadership style, one that I now teach, one that is grounded in compassion.

 Those routines also helped me find either the good and/or the lesson in the various ugly situations that showed up in my life.  Things like dealing with sexual harassment, watching my daughter fall victim to drugs, watching my son address the same demon, starting and failing at a couple of businesses before finally succeeding with my first, then my second, third and now fourth business.  Each challenge brought a unique lesson.  Each lesson helped me find another piece of myself and thus grow stronger.

Through it all, I have learned that life can be, should be, and is a joy, when you choose to adopt attitudes that allow you to see the beauty and gifts that abound.  I won’t say that I always was successful in holding to those attitudes.  I have definitely had periods in my life where I have fallen into victimhood.  Always, when I chose the route of fear, things became harder until I remembered the two early lessons in my life. Upon remembering those, I'd shift my thinking and things would fall back into a good place. With it, more clarity.

And so, I have sought transformation from the inside out.  While I have not sought the lessons, I have always looked to learn from the lessons.  Now, as I continue my transformation (for it is a continuous journey), I wish to help others in theirs.  I want to support women who seek to step fully into their brilliance and lead others into theirs. 

This is the new paradigm.  Women in leadership fully embracing all of who they are, leaning into the Divine Feminine, the divine wisdom that is innate within. 

As I have learned to open to the Divine Feminine Energy, I have learned to embrace compassionate leadership. I will help you open to the Divine, and encourage you to find and embrace the compassion within, bringing it forth into your leadership.  

Make no mistake, compassion does NOT mean giving so much of yourself that there is nothing left.  It is not bending over backward to your breaking point.  It is seeing another human being for the thinking, feeling being that they are and acting upon it.  Sometimes it is tough, sometimes easy, sometimes scary, sometimes courageous.  But ALWAYS, it is with heart.

Your compassion will help transform the way the world operates.  If you don’t step up fully, the status quo remains intact.  So, let’s shake things up so that we can live in a world of kindness and humanity.

What transformed women leaders are saying... 

"Rene’ is fantastic! She cuts to the core of the situation and helps you understand how you can be an emotional being, manage my emotions and be successful in the business world. I have been able to take the information that she has given me and used it in the development of my business".

"I loved Rene’s videos. They were easy to understand and they provided information that I was able to take and put to use right away".

I loved the CEO Voice course.  The modules were easy to follow and gave practical and easy-to-implement tools that I was able to put into practice right away. 

I didn’t realize how much of my power I was giving away until I started to pay attention to my energy.  Thank you, Rene’.

This Leadership Mastery class was not what I expected. I started expecting it to be more of the same old same old but hoping it was different. I’m glad so I took it!

The messaging around language really got me thinking. I didn’t realize the impact of my words, the subtleties of the messages I was sending myself or the people around me, until going through this course.

Now, I am extremely conscious of how I speak to myself and my team. In fact, my team has noticed and and I’ve shared some of the information with them.

It has created a completely different dynamic in the office.
