One Solution with Mara Gleason Olsen

One Solution

Mara Gleason Olsen is the co-founder of One Solution, an international nonprofit dedicated to solving large-scale global challenges by helping individuals, communities, and systems to change from within. It is Mara’s life passion to help people reconnect to their innate well-being, resilience and capacity for new ideas because it is the most efficient and sustainable solution to any problem.

Mara talks with me about her work to help people from all walks of life find well-being and solutions to tough challenges, including MIT-trained physicists, UN directors, US Marines, NHL players, Microsoft managers, prison inmates and young people in South Side Chicago, Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank.

In this moving and intimate interview, Mara acknowledges that the intuitive way of love has guided her and her family, one next small right step at a time, through a crushing personal loss. You will fall in love with this beautiful woman who is a brilliant influencer and a vulnerable, open-hearted woman, wife, mom, sister, daughter, and friend.

Prior to creating One Solution, from 2010-2016 Mara partnered with Aaron Turner to found and co-direct One Thought, a New York/London-based company that trained thousands of organizational leaders from around the world. Her “Super Power” talk to high school students in south side Chicago was featured on the popular digital platform Goalcast, viewed over 2 million times.

Mara is the author of Amazon #1 best-selling book One thought changes everything. She is a sought-after speaker at international conferences, was a speaker for TEDx Countdown, and has been a featured guest on many podcasts. Mara graduated with a master’s degree from Columbia University in 2006. She sits on the board of EveryMom Chicago and Sarsen. She currently lives in Chicago with her husband and co-director of One Solution, Eirik Olsen, and their two children.
