By combining the power of mindset and strategic expertise, we support you in the creation of a business that achieves increased sales in less time and with reduced resource investment.

This is for you if...

  • You're feeling overwhelmed by all the things you need to do to start or grow your business.

  • You're lost on how to market your business effectively.

You are in the right place

There is a multitude of conflicting advice on investment priorities when launching or growing a business. We have a different approach.

Our approach centres on achieving excellence in various small but critical areas. Within our programs, we provide you with bite-sized knowledge in these key areas that you effectively need to build a business that generates sales.

We provide 1:1 support because the hardest thing in this process is overcoming self-doubt and limiting beliefs. The name of the game is ‘getting out of your own way’. By providing you with personalised support, we help you address and conquer these challenges effectively.

Meet Your Coach: Merce Maresma

Certified coach, NLP Practitioner + former digital marketing agency owner & online business expert

Merce is the founder of Forget the Office, a coaching and consultancy practice dedicated to helping new entrepreneurs build sustainable businesses.
A certified coach and digital marketing expert, she previously built a career as a corporate lawyer in Spain which she quit because she felt disconnected and burnt out.

After a period of feeling lost, Merce immersed herself in digital marketing and developed an interest in coaching.
She started freelancing and eventually established her own digital marketing agency. Despite her extensive education in business, law, and marketing, she struggled with limiting beliefs and fears, realising that the learning curve of becoming an entrepreneur is steep.

Merce founded Forget the Office to support entrepreneurs in creating and growing online businesses and to bridge the gap for those lacking business and marketing support or too afraid to take the leap.
She became a certified coach and trained in NLP and somatic experience, offering a holistic approach to coaching on top of her strategic background.
Forget the Office provides marketing, business, and mindset training, along with 1:1 coaching, creating a supportive space for entrepreneurs to build strong foundations and achieve their next level of success.

What others are saying about Forget the Office


Mercè is a great professional and a wonderful person.

I was stuck and she helped me find my purpose.

It has been a great experience to work with her.


The money mindset session with Merce was very useful to me because I could understand my values related to money.

I found that some beliefs were limiting me and my business. Now I am more capable of making the right decision regarding my values, lifestyle, and personal needs. She is such an amazing coach :).


I highly recommend the workshop to anyone who wants to learn about Instagram Strategy and how to use Canva. This workshop has given me all the tools I needed to confidently start with my Instagram content strategy and with my Canva designs. After the workshop I feel much more clarity, confident, and energised to start taking action, and now I know where to start.


Mercè is a great mentor. Very patient and encouraging. I don't consider myself a techie person and I easily get overwhelmed when it comes to Instagram, Canva, and technologies in general, but Mercè explains everything in such a simple and clear way that everything seems much easier and fun. I cannot recommend this workshop enough!

Mercè was a gift from the universe, this is how it is.

Our sessions made realize so many limiting beliefs, many issues that burned inside me and I didn't know why. Thanks to her I have begun to really visualize my path as a freelancer.

Thank you for that, Mercè. Looking forward to seeing each other again 🙌🏻🙏🏻

Dr. Anneline Padayachee

Today's workshop was really, really, really epic.

We got given a workbook, which guides your thinking right from working out your values, your mission, and your vision for either yourself personally, and also your business and your company. 

And then it takes you from there all the way through to working out content, all within a day. 

Because if you don't get that basics right and you don't understand the pains of who your target audiences are, don't really get into their head, understand what does a win look like for them, and don't understand what their objections could potentially be, you're just literally swinging back blindly. So yeah, the workshop was really, really, really good.

Alba Marin, CEO & Founder of

These are some of the things Alba said about our program Initiation:

What did you enjoy the most about Initiation? I loved everything about it. Not only did it give me the necessary tools to launch my project, but it's a complete mindset shift. I know that without Mercè, it would have been impossible for me to be where I am today.

How would you say it has impacted your business and life so far? Especially in that I believe I have a structured minimum viable product and know my ideal customer. In my personal life, it has impacted me greatly in seeing myself truly as the owner of my company and believing that I can do this. I love all the material it provides. It has helped me a lot in setting specific deadlines. By documenting every step, I have been much more capable of identifying flaws and structuring the brand and business much better overall. I also felt very understood in all the sessions.

How would you say it will impact your business and life in the coming months? In every aspect, because right now I feel confident in having a very solid foundation for my project.

Would you recommend it to other people? Yes.
