Today is a very special Tuesday.
- It’s NEW YEAR’S EVE
- It’s (almost) the 3rd anniversary of MarieTV
- Today’s episode was made especially to honor YOU
Here’s the scoop. A few months back, we asked you to share stories with us about MarieTV. How you found us, what changes you’ve been inspired to make, and anything else you wanted to share.
At first, we had no idea exactly how we’d turn all this goodness into an episode. But once we started reviewing the submissions, we figured it out.
We both laughed and cried at your funny, inspiring, heartfelt, and totally unexpected stories.
Your diversity, quirkiness, heart and soul inspired us to create the first (and possibly last) MarieTV Shoutie awards.
It’s a cliché thing to say, but it is true. Without you, there would be no MarieTV. Josh and Kuma would be absolutely sick of my advice (especially Kuma) and non-stop references to 90s hip-hop.
So thank you, truly, for being a part of my life. Thank you for helping us make it to 3 years of our show. And thank you for so graciously allowing us to share in your hopes and dreams each and every week.
You know, everybody needs a little help sometimes. Mentors, smart friends and yes, even people we all look up to.
That’s why on this Christmas Eve, I’m honored to help one of the biggest global icons of all time.
(Side note: yet another cool blessing of the Internet — you just never know who is a fan of your work!)
No matter what you celebrate, I think you’ll relate to the struggles this fan brings to MarieTV and to our solutions.
I just got back from a week in Santa Barbara with Team Forleo.
The fireplace kept us cozy and the shining sun was fuel for my soul. While California is gorgeous this time of year, the best part was just spending quality time with people I love.
Each woman brought so much heart, bravery, vulnerability, strength and focus to each day — it was truly awe inspiring.
Now during these retreats we make big decisions. And we don’t always start out (or end) on the same page.
But getting to the best and wisest path to move ahead often requires respectful but spirited debates.
We do our best to make sure that everyone has a chance to speak up and be heard — which is no easy task with a loudmouth like me around :).
Since you’re likely spending more time than usual with family and friends during the holidays (where there might be some loudmouths like me!!)…
I wanted to give you a simple yet genius technique that will help you be more powerful, charismatic and persuasive — in just 3 seconds flat. Bam!
Right now I’m nearing 30,000 feet en route to Santa Barbara, California for our year-end team retreat.
Since we’re a virtual company, having in-person time together is vital. Plus, I personally love big sleepovers — so a week with people I love in a beautiful location is a true blessing.
Make no mistake though — we will get a ton done. Some major goal-setting and strategic planning for the next 12 – 36 months is top of our agenda.
As this year is winding to a close, I wanted to give you a primer on goal setting gone wrong — and gone right.
Even if you feel like you’re the master of goal-setting, take a few minutes to learn a fresh new way to set — and reach them — with myself and Danielle LaPorte.
Today, I wanted to tackle a topic that most of us can relate to — especially during the holidays. Between travel, parties, gifts, and extra time with family…
It’s inevitable that at some point over the next few weeks, the hot topic of money will be front and center.
No surprise here, but how you think and feel about money may be very different than the people around you.
Everyone is their own person of course, but research has shown that we’re more affected by our environment than we think. No where do we feel this more than with money.
So — are we royally screwed if our friends and family are stuck in scarcity? Do we need to focus on changing them in addition to changing ourselves?
