Guest Interviews with My Inspiring & Creative Friends

Have you ever experienced a setback or failure and had a tough time regaining your confidence?

An actor friend recently confessed, “I had this really, really awful experience on set 4 months ago and I haven’t been able to recover since. The director yelled at me in front of the whole crew. I lost my lines and couldn’t deliver what he wanted. It was a nightmare. It’s like a record scratch in my psyche and I can’t seem to get over it.”

My heart broke for her. She’s experienced and talented. She’s open hearted and self-aware. But no matter what she’s tried, this one creative catastrophe crushed her confidence, and her ability to fully get back in the game.

We’re all sensitive souls. Sometimes seemingly minor setbacks that our minds tell us should be “no big deal” can sink our self-confidence and hold us back from our dreams.

If you, or anyone you know, has trouble regaining their confidence after a failure, you’ll really appreciate today’s episode with the brilliant Dr. Cathy Collautt.

“Who is this guy?” That’s what I asked myself when I first saw his work. He was passionate, articulate and massively creative.

If you don’t know Jason Silva, please take 2 minutes and 55 seconds to watch this video before diving into our longer interview. You’ll know if this uber inspiring philosophical jam is up your alley.

Heads up: this video still brings tears to my eyes when I watch it because it reminds me of how damn much I love love. How much I treasure life in all its forms and how incredibly fleeting it all is.

Since you’re still reading, I’ll take that as a sign that you’re ready for more Jason Silva.

As a person who is always creating and learning, I love meeting people who can make me even more inspired to stretch my own capabilities, reach farther and dig deeper.

That’s what I admire so much in Jason and I hope he inspires the same in you. In today’s interview we’re talking futurism, technology, spirituality, idea sex and more.

Do you ever struggle to clearly communicate your message?

Whether you’re pitching yourself to get press, a new project, a new client, or a new job — being concise and compelling is vital.

But when you’re multipassionate, or just have a lot of valuable things to say, effectively selling yourself in just a few words can feel near impossible.

But here’s the hard truth.

You only have seconds to get a producer, client, customer or boss’s attention — and keep it.

And in order to do that, you’ve got to simplify your message. If you’ve ever tried, you know this is no easy task.

Never fear — MarieTV is here :)

Today’s topic isn’t something we talk about much, but it’s vital if you, or someone you know, is starting or running their own business.

As someone who’s built a business from the ground up — no investors, no MBA, nothing but passion, drive and a lot of hard work — this is a lesson I wish I had when I first started.

With most complex and often fear-inducing topics – like how to get legally set up for success – a bit of initial education goes a long way.

It empowers you with a framework to ask intelligent questions and take smart actions to protect yourself, your clients and your future.

In today’s MarieTV episode, learn 3 common legal mistakes small business owners make, and how to fix them.

Waking up in a pool of your own blood isn’t something most of us aspire to.

But when you constantly push beyond your limits in an effort to “get ahead” that’s exactly where you might wind up.

Combine our change-the-world ambitions with a diligent work ethic and 24/7 technology, and we’ve got a recipe for chronic exhaustion.

That’s why it’s so important to me that you watch today’s episode of MarieTV.

My guest is the legendary Arianna Huffington, author of the new book Thrive, and she’s here to help us redefine success on our own terms.
