We are thrilled to be sitting down with the founder of MarieTV and B-School, author of Everything is Figureoutable, coach, philanthropist… Marie Forleo! Marie shares her inspiring story of pursuing multiple corporate jobs to find what lit her up, only to hear that voice inside saying they weren’t right. You’ll learn how she turned down a promotion for Vogue to instead work in the service industry as she learned how to build a business and be a life coach. Marie now helps millions build lives they truly love.

In our conversation, we talk about imposter syndrome, following the feeling of fear, and not adhering to the reality of others. Marie also unpacks the critical importance of sales and marketing, and how she’s transformed her company’s culture through gratitude and implementing times of “pause.” Marie shares her test for deciphering between fear and intuition, so when making a decision, you know which to pursue. This is an impactful conversation you don’t want to miss!

Are you looking to take your business to the next level? Be sure to enroll in Marie’s B-School by February 28th! The course begins on March 2nd.


We also talk about:

  • Celebrating wins + team vacations
  • The benefits + challenges of being a coach
  • The feeling behind “What am I to…?” getting smaller over time
  • Creating community in a virtual business
  • Concept of “dating before marrying” when hiring
