On the sixth day of Christmas…

Marie Forleo is an American life coach, motivational speaker, author and web television host. She is the owner of Marie Forleo International, B-School and MarieTV and has had some stellar standout moments this year. These are our favourites! Grab a pen and journal because these videos are a minefield for golden truths and lessons for all entrepreneurs and people alike.


1: How to have business drive and inner peace

In Marie’s words: “You can be completely at harmony with the Universe and hustle for what you want.”

Phew, good to know! So often peace and success feel like competing and conflicting goals, but Marie, in her epic kind of way, explains it doesn’t have to be that way.

She explains that you can be a Type A driven go-getter and still lead a spiritual life in alignment with the cosmos.

Here are her three tips for finding your stress-free mojo while wildly bringing your big dreams to life.

2: Everything is figureoutable

Did you catch Marie on Oprah’s Super Soul TV? If you missed it, you’re in luck! Marie shares how nearly missing a flight to Barcelona, Spain, to rekindle the spark in her marriage reminded her that “everything is figureoutable.” On the brink of losing it at the airport, she remembers the words of her mother: “Nothing in life is that complicated. All right? You can do whatever you set your mind to. You just roll up your sleeves, you get in there, and you do it. Everything is figureoutable.”

3: Overcoming Self Doubt

Marie teamed up with Seth Godwin, best-selling American author, entrepreneur, marketer, and public speaker, to talk about overcoming self doubt. This one is right up there among our best Marie moments for 2016. In this interview, Seth and Marie share what to do if you’re afraid of being judged for your ideas (or afraid you’ll run out of ideas!), how to manage not getting overwhelmed by email or external demands, and why we all need to stop waiting for the ‘right moment’ before we get started.

 4: What it takes to have an extraordinary life

In this episode, Marie talks to Tony Robbins, American businessman, author, and philanthropist, about his documentary I Am Not Your Guru, which has been described as a beautiful emotional journey to leadership. They talk candidly about his work, his life and some of the strategies he uses to spark such profound transformations in other. Marie soon finds herself in a mini coaching session with Tony, right in the middle of the interview. As Tony says in his profound way: “Our competitive advantage is love.”

A must watch. Head this way


5: Marie’s incredibly authentic & insightful Instastories!

Instastories have taken on their own life this year, consuming hours of our attention each week.  And if anyone is worthy of this attention, its Maries Instastories… They are a gorgeous peek behind the scenes into her own personal world. With life-time love Josh and friends appearing regularly in these amazing stories, they are well worth a watch.


6: B-school!!

It’s designed to turn your business into a force for good that fuels higher profits and your higher purpose.
