Meet the team.

Relly relies on countless experts to pass on marketing knowledge, coach up our members, and provide real, practical value every day. But it all started as an “a-ha” with our founder, Maria, who put the team together to make it happen.

Maria’s bio needs more space. Not only was Relly her brainchild, she once got Snoop Dogg to do an intimate show at a Restaurant/Bar for a few hundred folks (pulling it off in just three weeks, including logistics, sponsorships, ticket sales, community outreach, and media relations).

And Star Wars actor Mark Hamill thought Jeff’s hand-built R2 unit was so cool, he signed it. But Jeff’s not all play and no work.

Who else can we help?

In building Relly, we got very excited about helping small businesses and teams (see our lofty thoughts above). But you know what else we’re excited about? Making a difference. Giving back.
