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
And today, my guest has spent over 20 years producing television for big names like Oprah Winfrey and Anderson Cooper. Translation? She knows the dos and don’ts of clear communication.
Can you relate?
You said yes to a major project with your full heart. You felt good. Excited. Ready to dive in. You believe in this thing and the other folks involved are thrilled to have you on board.
A bit of time goes by and your life takes a turn.
It’s all good, but things are different now. Less time, less bandwidth. The truth is you stress even thinking about this project and what it will take to pull it off.
But, you already said yes. You gave your word. People are counting on you (lots of them) and you pride yourself on being someone who honors commitments, no matter what.
Enter a stormy, emotional mix of guilt, inadequacy, panic, and fear. There’s the fear of looking weak, the fear of disappointing others, and the fear of damaging your reputation.
Do you suck it up and try harder, or, do you call it quits?
If you’ve ever struggled with saying no after you’ve already said yes, this MarieTV is for you.
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.
A few months ago, we got a question in from a MarieTV fan that went like this…
“How do you put out such great content all the time without fail? What do you do when you feel like the creative well is running dry?”
After 3+ years of producing MarieTV, over a decade of publishing a newsletter, and 5+ years teaching dance and fitness, I know a little something about steady creation.

Sometimes people say something that just really hits home.
That’s what I felt when my friend Todd and I first talked about the biology of change.
Meaning, what actually happens inside our bodies on a cellular level when we consciously work to form new positive habits.
He shared ideas from his work with athletes (from Olympians to passionate amateurs) that helped me better understand why some people successfully form new habits, and others seem to slip back into old patterns again and again.
It’s fascinating stuff.
