- Marjorie Spitz-Rento, Balance Integration President
Through strategic guidance, and organizational, business and interpersonal skills, we assess the situation and create a path and environment where leaders and teams succeed, grow and learn.
Business Consulting – Via strategy development, accountability and implementation, we help you re-envision your business and map a clear path to profitability while simultaneously creating a supportive and thriving workplace culture.
Executive/Entrepreneur Coaching – What’s the biggest challenge you’re facing right now? What’s your biggest obstacle? Whether you’re looking to up your game professionally, need a sounding board or are ready to make lifestyle changes, we help you chart a course to success and serve as accountability for taking action to get there.
Group/Team Workshops with Chutzpah – With so much being done virtually, connectivity and empathic leadership is critical. We custom design facilitated sessions that bring your team together for powerful sharing of ideas that support their growth, collaboration and mental well-being. Some of our favorite topics can be seen here.
With Balance Integration Small Business, I know I’m working with a real partner. Their knowledge is so deep. They helped us pivot in a direction we needed to go and as a result we embraced new ways of doing business and new ideas to set us up for success, and our business is thriving.
Marjorie is magical at helping people achieve their full potential! She innately understands and adapts to the needs of varied clients in a compassionate, insightful and sensitive way. Whether for an individual or group, she creates customized strategies to meet each customers’ needs, gently guiding people to see new paths where they can achieve success.

Hard Questions - Drive Results.
We know the Power of the Pivot
Inspiring Tools for Combining your Passion with Money-Making
Having lived, seen and guided the power of the pivot, we know what it’s like to build up, pare down, reinvent or repurpose. With limited resources and lean teams, small businesses face retooling the boat while already navigating turbulent seas. The key to smooth sailing is creating an approach that is customized for your specific situation attached to realist actionable plan.
Balance Integration Small Business Strategy provides a combination of business consulting, coaching AND implementation. We ask you the hard questions in a gentle, safe, yet unwavering environment. We listen deeply, and help you move from what is to the best outcome possible.
Vision statements, policies and winging it only get you so far. Evolution requires new conversations and new actions by leadership. We have successfully fostered both.
Focusing on the intersection of money-making, meaning and the magic of your passion for your business, we give you the tools and tactics you need to drive lasting organizational impact.
Whether a small family run business, or 500 strong organization, together in a playful yet efficient way we will:
Re-envision your business in the new “work from anywhere” world
Develop strategies for both the immediate and long term that make your vision real
Create an “All In” culture that everyone stands for and models throughout the organization
Align policies, structures and KPIs so your people know what’s expected and how to get things done

President, Balance Integration Small Business - MOJO Maker®, Business Strategist, Executive Coach, Speaker, Catalyst.
Small business isn’t just my passion, it’s in my blood.
My entrepreneurial immigrant grandparents owned bakeries; other relatives of that generation owned or ran a range of businesses such as a wholesale candy distributor, dental lab, orange grove, research survey company and movie theaters. One was even a bootlegger.
I understand the conundrum of having limited resources and needing to get a plan in place to stay relevant while also motivating and empowering a high performing staff.
Today, every decision you make feels like it has more heightened repercussions than it did a year ago. These challenges are simply magnified by the economic uncertainties we all face.
Leaders are people. To optimize your impact, you have to be willing to optimize yourself. With years in the advertising industry and as executive director for non-profit organizations, I understand how to curate a high engagement organization starting with assessment and optimization of leadership.
As President of Balance Integration Small Business, I help companies of 5-500 employees pivot their business through strategy, coaching, C-Suite alignment and implementation. Clients include KKR, Havas, NBA, Physiofitness and Dune Resorts.
I’m also proud to be a sought after speaker and facilitator on topics such as self-sabotage, performance, empathetic leadership and how to thrive for organizations like Deloitte, Fly Female Founders, Leaders Lounge, Fast Company, Peer 150, KKR and Open Mind Strategy.
