What do you need right now?

You are a brilliant and deeply capable human being.

And, whether or not you enjoy admitting it to yourself... you are relentlessly needy, just like the rest of us.

Hot damn do I love that about you. 

What would be different for you if you were able to confidently know what you needed and ask for it with ease?

Let’s back that up. 

What would be different for you if you knew you were ALLOWED to have needs? 

If you believed that the presence of your needs was a fact and not a flaw? If you believed that having needs made you human and not an unlovable needy mess?

(Cue Kate Hudson’s character in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. You do not want to be the human with the love fern desperate for affection and attention.) 

But… if you’re really honest with yourself, you know that the way that you’ve been living is unsustainable.

You know you’re exhausted and hungry for more than what currently feels possible for you, but it always feels like another thing to add to your very, very long to-do list. 

You are keenly aware of the problem, but what you don’t know is what to do about it. 

That’s where I come in.


Hi, I’m Mara. 

I am a writer, podcast host, and intuitive coach. At the moment, I am hard at work quite literally writing the book about honoring your needs, but in the meantime, I have created this quiz to support you in getting to the bottom of what you need most right now -- and how to meet that need in deliciously doable ways. 

It is time to stop working on yourself, and start working with yourself. 

Before you dive into the quiz below, I recommend taking a deep breath and moment to center yourself. As you make your way through the questions, you might feel as though multiple answers apply to you in this present moment. Never fear! This is how it is with conflicting needs -- often we need a few things at once. 

Give yourself permission to pick whatever answer feels most right and true to you right now. There is no way to mess this up. I pinky promise. 

Maybe you need this?

This 13 question quiz will take you under ten minutes to complete and will connect with you with a pressing need in your life right now -- and a glorious collection of micro practices to support you in meeting that need with a greater sense of confidence, ease, and grace.

If there are questions that you don't know the answer for or where you don't get the pop culture references, don't worry. Use this quiz as an experiment in trusting your intuition and pick whatever feels right.

There is no wrong way to take this quiz. I pinky promise. 

Once you finish answering the questions, you will be magically tele-transported to your results.

If you choose to share your email address with me, moments later you will receive a beautiful PDF that is chock full of practices and love notes, plus access to a secret podcast created just for you.

Now, onto the quiz!
