Thank you Marie, the team and community for giving me words and tools to make this massive change.

Until recently I was living in London, where my boyfriend and I had a coffee truck business. Since last Christmas we had been doing all the planning to open a coffee shop and, just when we were about to sign the lease, I left. I left the country and the boyfriend. The thing is ... All year I had been feeling like I was walking down the wrong path, following some else's flow ... and as the commitment approached I started to panic. I'd always wanted a business but somehow this felt wrong. Was it FEAR of the big jump or... my INSTINCT telling me to run away? I expressed my doubts many times but people around me seemed to think I was "so lucky" it was so "awesome to have a coffee business and to open a café!" They were telling me not to be afraid and to just jump in. I did not feel afraid of the business failing, but rather of being stuck in the commitment and all it entailed. So one evening a friend at Book Club told me about Marie Forleo, surprised I didn't know about you already. I watched videos about fear and instinct and what the hell is the difference between all those voices. Marie's words resonated with me and I repeated them to myself everyday. Eventually I had the courage to face it: I was in a cloudy country I had no affection for, away from my favourite people and with a boyfriend who was an awesome person, friend and business partner but not the lover I want to spend a life with. So however cool it may sound to have a coffee shop in London, the business was not the problem, the environment was! The evening I made the decision felt like my chest opened itself up for me to breathe twice as much air. So THANK YOU Marie, the team and the Marie community for giving me words and tools to make this massive change.

I've been named a Top 40 under 40 accounting professionals in the US.

Before discovering MarieTV, while doing a random Google search for women in business, I thought that I was building a business on my own. I did not understand the power of the Universe (frankly, did not believe in one) and the importance of self-love. Since graduating from B-School and religiously watching MarieTV every week, I have rediscovered my sense of awe and childlike wonder. My business has experienced ups and downs, but I feel a deep sense of peace that I did not know was attainable for myself. I have been named one of the Top 40 under 40 accounting professionals in the United States, a "next-generation accountant and business influencer" by Quickbooks and Xero, and have been featured on Huffington Post Live with Suze Orman. Thank you Marie and Team Forleo for supporting us all in building a business and life that we love.

I began to discover that the work I do really does matter.

As an entrepreneur it can feel like an incredibly lonely journey. Friends and family can think you're barking up the wrong tree and it can feel like the problems you face are yours to face alone. Doubts and fears creep up and you begin to wonder if your big, beautiful dream is all worth it. When I discovered Marie's work (especially MarieTV), I began to discover that what I was going through on my entrepreneurial path was, well, normal! I didn't have a big neon sign on my head that said 'Entrepreneurial Weirdo' and that the work I do really does matter. Since discovering MarieTV, I have been unafraid to put my work proudly out into the world. I love what I do and I know that the service I provide really does make a difference to the filmmakers I work with. Marie's sense of humor and her undeniable sassiness is fun and inspiring, so I never fail to tune into MarieTV. I always have a bit more of a skip in my step for the day when I finish watching. Running a business should be fun and not a bore, and Marie's advice always steers you towards seeking the joy in your business and valuing what you do, no matter what niche you are in.

After watching a year's worth of episodes, Marie lifted me out of depression.

Before Marie I was lost, wandering along the dark corridors of alleyways and following empty streets with no clear guidance or direction. As I sank into an abyss of financial uncertainty, with little to no chance for financial prosperity, it became clear change was necessary to generate progress. So I started using Google's search engine to find a method of how to change my bleak reality into forward progress. Eventually, I found and clicked on search results listing Marie Forleo's website. The first thing that came to mind while watching her was how could all this be free. I just had trouble wrapping my mind around how such great advice was free. I am glad to say that after watching a year's worth of episodes, Marie lifted me out of depression. She carried me out of a meaningless existence that stemmed from the thought that financial rewards were unattainable. She shattered my belief that I was destined to carry on life unproductively. She explained time and time again in so many different ways that the true path to prosperity lies within. Her mantra taught me to believe in myself and told me not to shun that which makes me different but to determine how it can make me better. She explained how effectively using the resources available to you is what makes a person smart, productive and successful. So after hearing her for a year I started believing in myself. Her generosity and sincerity and willingness to give so much of herself breathed life into my hollow existence. I began to be nicer to people, and try to treat them with more respect because Marie taught me so much about respect. Her willingness to sacrifice so much of her personal time to outlay the methods and framework for operating successfully in business humbled me time and time again. I began wondering how I can be so angry at the world when a special woman like her is so willing to freely share her talents and strengths.

Now I have a whole new vision for my future. The best is yet to come!

Have you ever been to a really nice boutique and the staff hands you clothes you would never have thought to try on? Then you try them on and BAM! You look amazing. That's what B-School and MarieTV did for me. I'm 55 years old. I had assumed the rest of my life would be about becoming a grandma, holding the wrinkles at bay, blah, blah, blah. Now I have a whole new vision for my future. The best is yet to come! The doors have been kicked wide open and what I now see are endless opportunities - writing, teaching, traveling, loving and encouraging a whole lot of folks who are struggling through what we were struggling through. That's what it's all about!

You saved my life. I am a totally new person with a much clearer mindset.

I have to admit, it's been so devastating for me before I got to watch the amazing series MarieTV. I didn't have a purpose to live up to, I always stayed put waiting for an anonymous miracle to happen. I would set goals but didn't move into accomplishing them. And my worst fear – that Marie got me out of – was on "who do I want to be in life?". The video where she explained the significance of determining the person we want to become in life over the things we would like to be doing changed my total perspective of life itself after being reminded that we are "human beings" not "human doing". The next thing that I've learned, since I became a follower of Marie Forleo, is how to overcome that fear of "how will they judge me!" and how to not pay attention to the judging eyes that judge me but to start living for myself, my life my rules. I can say I am a total new person with a much clearer mindset of who I'd want to be in future starting from now. And I am free to do what I want (as long as it is positive) without having to worry about the judging eye. Thank you soo much Dear Marie, you are a whale of awesomeness. You saved my life. And even though I still face challenges, I know coming over to Marie TV I am going to be back on track.

You convinced me, a small-town girl, that she has something special to do on this planet.

I was 22, gainfully employed, surrounded by friends, and wanted to end my own life. I was successful. My employees looked up to me. I had a really big smile and more energy than my co-workers could understand. But at night, before I turned the shower off, I would cry. I would cry and cry because I was so incredibly depressed. I was plagued by the notion of killing myself and wracked with anxiety over failing and letting everyone down. When I tried to tell my roommate, she didn't believe me. No one believed I could be that sad. Even I didn't understand how it was possible. I remember specifically sitting at work and getting an email from Marie. I always always watch her videos, so this part wasn't different, but what sticks out was just how incredibly sad I was that day. So overwhelmed by how sad everyone around me was. How I had everything I could possibly want, so much more than most people on this planet, and I couldn't feel any joy from it. The video that day was about Tonglen breathing. About breathing in all the sad sad things, and exhaling and speaking an affirmation. I chose, All will be made right.

I did that at work that day. Then used it at the yoga class I teach. And showed all my friends. And still to this day use it to deal with crippling anxiety. It was a full year later when I was diagnosed with Bipolar II Disorder and decided to start fighting. Every Tuesday I watch Marie's videos. Feeding off her incredibly sound professional advice. As someone with mental health issues, I stumble across a great deal of crappy advice. But her stories speak peace into my heart and inspire me to make changes. Not to be awesome just for the sake of being awesome, but because I'm wanted and needed on this planet.

And more people need to hear that. Marie, you're doing something amazing. You convinced me, a small-town girl, that she has something special to do on this planet. And this small-town girl will convince the people around her that they're awesome too. You aren't spreading a promise of wealth, or selling a lie of a perfect life. You have started the movement of embracing who you were made to be. You've used your story, your mistakes, your vulnerability, your quirky personality, and your really awesome hair to build a following of women who will change the world. Who feel capable of changing the world. Who will teach their daughters they're capable of continuing the change. So thank you Marie. Thank you for lighting a fire in me. For reminding me what I already knew. For fighting back with grace and really great style. You rock.

The value you have given me has helped me rebuild my life and create meaning out of the darkness.

I was reeling after the sudden death of my best friend. Two days before she died I was in Spain, visiting her daughter and was offered the phone to speak with her. I said no, I'm going home soon and I'll see her then. Later that day I had a terrible fall in the Alhambra Palace and broke three ribs so my journey home was very painful. Just as I arrived back we got the call. After that, I developed severe panic attacks, and in my quest to heal my broken body and heart, I threw the net wide and searched for anything that would help me. Out of that Harvest Calm was born. One of my first and most important inspirations was Marie, when she said everything is figureoutable, I didn't believe how my mess could be figured out but her voice, the genuine and clear way she has of connecting made me realise that there were so many other things to figure out, finding my voice and using the right words to speak my truth without holding back, this is the gift Marie has given me. Well ... During all this time I was going through IVF which on top of everything else made me batshit crazy, but I carried on creating Harvest Calm and treating clients with it, they loved it! I then realised I wanted to create the course purely online and have offered it as a beta test to a small group of people, the most precious feedback I got was that they could hear me speak through the course. Then eight weeks ago I wanted to refine it so that it could be more accessible to a wider group of people. I asked a Psychiatrist who runs a drug dependency unit to help me, and he has looked over the course, and thinks it's brilliant! He now wants to use it in his clinic for his clients, which is an enormously precious endorsement, and the first thing he said was ... I can really hear your voice. He also pointed out a few errors and places that needed ironing out. So ... Marie, thank you, through engaging with your free content ( all our spare pennies have been put towards the IVF) the value you have given me has helped me rebuild my life and create meaning out of the darkness of the last few years, in a way which is deeply satisfying and of service to people who've suffered similar things to me.

Marie made me look into all the chaotic and frustrating dark corners of my soul and helped me to discover that it's all in my hands ...

Marie taught me to break through this inner vicious circle of self-defeating thoughts and self images and to actually dare what I only dreamt of: to be the real me – creative, original, independent, going for what I believe in without compromises. Marie made me look into all the chaotic and frustrating dark corners of my soul and helped me to discover that it's all in my hands and that I actually am free to think the way that I choose to think and free to create the life I really love. It's not only a slogan, it's what actually happens following her teachings step by step.

Because of the power in that video, I am now a high school graduate.

About a year ago I was trying to get myself to do my school work. It was hard for me since it was the first time I did online school. (I couldn't even pay attention or get myself to do work when I did regular school.) So I searched on YouTube for "How to be motivated" and I found your video, How To Get Motivated When You're Stuck In A Rut. The quote on that video hit me ... no, kicked me right in the face. Like damn I need this! I was at the point that I thought I wouldn't graduate because I had more than 45 works to be done in 1 month before the last day of school plus I was helping my mum with her business for customer service. I would get phone calls and texts ALL THE TIME. But because of the power of the words "getting sh*t done", I am now a high school graduate :D Thanks again!

The EXACT messages I needed to hear to kick me in the bum, get me started and, most importantly, to BELIEVE in myself.

Just before discovering Marie, I was grieving my mother's passing from cancer (after helping to care for her for 14 months) and feeling a sense of urgency that life is short and "now" was finally the time to follow my heart. I had worked in the corporate world (Disney) for over 20 years, changing roles every few years when I'd get bored, but always had a deep desire to have my own business and create my own thing to serve the world my own unique way. Although my mom's passing was one of my greatest losses, it also served as my greatest catalyst to finally begin pursuing my dreams. As a way to begin building my confidence and courage, I began researching successful female entrepreneurs and their stories as inspiration. This is when I discovered the archive of MarieTV episodes, and I was instantly hooked. They were the EXACT messages I needed to hear to kick me in the bum, get me started and, most importantly, to BELIEVE in myself. I express my deepest gratitude to Marie and her superstar team for truly helping me create a business and life I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!! Please keep up your amazing work -- the world needs you! I'm honored to be one of your millions of fans and success stories, and to recommend you almost daily to others who can benefit from your content and encouragement.

Her videos gave me the push to take the steps in the direction of my dreams.

Armed with a two year old and a three month old baby, I decided to launch my wedding photography business in 2013. Was it easy? No. Did I walk away from that email announcing my business to the world a million times? Yes. Was I scared to take the plunge after having a safe corporate job for years? Heck, yeah! So what happened? What made me warm up to the idea of carrying a breast pump while I worked long hours shooting a wedding with a toddler and an infant at home? Marie did. Watching her videos about confidence, fear and standing up for yourself gave me the right amount of push that it felt natural to take the steps in the direction of my dreams. I felt I had a companion on my journey who knew how I felt and was there to comfort me each step of the way. And every time doubt (the creeper) raised its ugly rusty axe, I panicked. But, going back to reading the blog, the blog comments of the community and watching the videos again made it easier for me to follow through. I cannot express enough how much I love the entire team at Marie Forleo that does such a phenomenal job of creating amazing content, while keeping it fun and fresh. It is hard to do both, but you guys are so effortlessly chic. If only I could squeeze you all in a big warm hug!! I have been getting my friends and family hooked onto the Marie Forleo school of life as well so I know I am helping in making this world a better place, in my own lil' way. :)

Thanks to Marie, I now believe in a different type of future than my parents taught me.

Thanks to Marie, and her team, I now believe in a different type of future than my parents taught me. I now believe that entrepreneurship is not only possible, it is natural to the spirit. One thing that has stuck with me for several years is a saying that Marie said in an episode sometime ago, "Don't let anybody stop you, not even yourself".... This wisdom has never left me, and it has given me the courage to at least try to create a lasting vision out of my passion even when my fears try to talk me out of it. I come from an average middle class life, and had been convinced that there was no other way to live than working for little pay and struggling doing something I don't love. I didn't know there were other options, I didn't know that there was a practical way to turn my passion into profit or Money Tickets as Marie calls them. I have been very quiet about how Marie and what she does has touched me, as I am sure she has done so for many others, and I have always assumed that my opinion wasn't so important. But now I want to thank you, I want thank her for facing her fears first, so that she could show me how to face mine.

Her words of wisdom made me realize there was something more for me out there.

Prior to MarieTV I was an assistant at an insurance brokerage firm. I struggled to climb the corporate ladder for 18 years. November 2014 I completed my bachelors degree in marketing and had been listening to Marie Forleo. Her words of wisdom made me realize there was something more for me out there. The burning inside said I was bigger than this. I needed to find something else to fulfill me, as commercial insurance was not doing this for me anymore. In May 2015 I decided I wanted to reinvent myself and create a painting party venue. My loving husband supported this idea 100%, and there was born the Art Cellar Houston. I can't thank you enough for your encouragement from afar!!! Every week there is a different inspirational video that helps me to feel comforted in the fact that I made the right decision. I am a success! I had not felt this before in my commercial insurance life. We have been open nearly two months and already are close to covering rent. This is huge for me. Many people offered discouraging words of, "It will take 3 years to cover your bills". We just may prove them wrong in two months. Yay!

You empowered me to be the best wife/nurse/woman I could be.

I found Marie TV at a point in my life when I needed you the most! Divine intervention perhaps? I was staying in the hospital by my husband's side night after night, week after week, surgery after surgery following a tragic injury. Five surgeries in 14 months. I went from a Newlywed wife to a 24 hr nurse overnight prior to our honeymoon. I was in the hospital chapel praying and getting some much needed solitude and change of scenery, seeking strength and hope when I came across a Marie TV episode on YouTube. I became immediately addicted to your uplifting messages teaching me exactly what I needed! Strength and hope. I could not have gotten through those dark times without you Marie! You empowered me to be the best wife/nurse/woman I could be. My thoughts changed from despair and victimization to being as positive and strong as I could be for both my husband's sake and my own. It's been 22 months since I found you and let me tell ya girl I can't live without you! You constantly remind me to never give up and teach me how to look at life with a new perspective of strength, love and hope. Even in my deepest despair your positive energy and love were contagious and helped me to be able to smile and spread the love and cheer to my husband, his medical team of doctors and surgeons and the hospital staff. Everyone commended me for my strength through this time and I owe it ALL to you my dear Marie! You played an integral part in making me who I am today. Thank you for being YOU and sharing your wealth of knowledge and compassion with us all. With the knowledge, strength, hope and encouragement you have given and continue to give to me I now have what it takes to rise from the ashes of a horrific event in my life. I am going to write a memoir of our story for our children and grandchildren using everything you have taught me which I am hoping will inspire them to live life to the fullest in ANY situation, ALWAYS have hope, and NEVER give up. Who knows, perhaps it will be published and empower other women too. Whenever I am low on energy, feeling overwhelmed by life, I turn to MarieTV to lift me up and motivate me to LIVE and have a positive impact on as many people in life as I can.

No panic attacks, enormous amounts of productivity (in my job and personal life), much happier relationships with the people I love, and – most importantly – I have a new relationship with myself.

I used to have crazy panic attacks about the smallest things. I said to myself enough is enough and I started looking all over the internet about what was wrong with me. I eventually started searching for keywords like stress/anxiety management and cognitive therapy. From there I decided to see a therapist for my mental and emotional health. Shortly after, my therapist told me I had no pathology and told me to get back out there and enjoy life. One day, my wife sent me a video of MarieTV and I was hooked. The things I found Marie talking about were all so relevant to things in my life. It's been about a year now and I'm doing much better. No panic attacks, enormous amounts of productivity (in my job and personal life), much happier relationships with the people I love, and – most importantly – I have a new relationship with myself. No more negative self talk. No more Compare Schlagger. I am much more compassionate towards myself and I trust in the process of my life. I've also been meditating every morning for the past 150 days. I feel that I've made such a dramatic change in just one year of my life. And a lot of it has to do with 5 minutes of MarieTV each week. Q&A Tuesdays have added a whole new dimension to my thinking.

In such a short time working in my own business and using Marie as a mentor, I cannot believe the impact she has had on me.

Before MarieTV, I was a legal secretary for 30 years and never heard of Marie Forleo. I then lost my job at a firm I was at for 8 years (was fired for taking time off when my daughter had a serious operation). I could not find work again as a legal secretary, even though I was never not employed as a legal secretary in 30 years. I was 56, bills had to get paid. I opened my own business, MBZ Interiors, Inc. I seriously do not recall how I found MarieTV but I did and it was such a breakthrough for me! Someone knew I was out here on my own in my own business and that I needed encouragement and it was OK and I could do it. I often think about what Marie would do in situations and I love to run to the computer to MarieTV when I am feeling down. In such a short time working in my own business and using Marie Forleo as a mentor, I cannot believe the impact she has had on me.

More than helping me get off the sidelines and starting to live again, these videos helped make me realise bad stuff happens and it's scary but that doesn't mean you give up.

I have always wanted to run my own business. Ever since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to be my own boss, but life took a few twists and turns. Just before I started university my mum passed away suddenly from a heart attack. Then 4 years later, just one year before I got married, my big brother died suddenly of a heart attack aged only 35. Both things shook me to my core and before I knew it, I had gone from thinking I could take on the world to being afraid of everything because I no longer knew what to expect from life and it scared me. Throw in some infertility and pregnancy loss before I finally went on to have my 2 beautiful kids and I had put life as my own boss on the back burner. My husband and his web clients were always telling me to set up my own online marketing site to help other - but here's the thing, I was too afraid. Losing my mum and my brother made me too afraid to try anything new, what if I failed (or what if I was good at it, that scared me just as much). Fear had become the familiar everyday feeling that I thought would stop me from ever being blind sided like I was before. Then a really good friend sent me a link for a MarieTV episode about overcoming fear, in it she said what we would hear would change our lives. I was skeptical. But you know what it did? That video sparked something in me and 2 hours later I was still watching more episodes of Marie TV. Then I liked her FB page and I really started to think "maybe I could do this." I have been hooked ever since, and can't wait for a Tuesday. My 9 year old even watches them with me. More than helping me get off the sidelines and starting to live again, these videos helped make me realise bad stuff happens and it's scary but that doesn't mean you give up. Now not only do I have a business I love but I am a happier person for it and a better, more positive wife and mum.

MarieTV always seems to be a morsel of miracle knowledge that I need at that time.

In my early Marie days, I was a freelance marketing consultant who was tour guiding on the side. I wanted to do guiding full time, but I was hesitant. Marie's episode "Get a BJ" (bridge job) landed in perfect timing, and I took a part time gig as a marketing coordinator for a university. That job lead to a full time position for 18 months. The income was great, and I was able to squirrel away the funds so that when the moment came when I was sick and tired of the daily grind, I made the leap. (Also inspired by a few Marie episodes along the way.) This year, since March, I've been guiding 100%. I'm now reinventing my portfolio lifestyle to have exactly what I want -- more guiding, with a little marketing on the side. The best thing about MarieTV is that it always seems to be a morsel of miracle knowledge that I need at that time. I love Tuesdays because of MarieTV!!!

You give me courage. You make me understand these roadblocks aren't unique to old me, they're universal, and there's hope.

Spent whole life as a public employee - safe, secure jobs where change and openness to new ideas didn't happen easily. I was a big idea, "can't we do this differently?" kind of person. Being an entrepreneur makes my heart soar! I find myself taking risks, selling myself and my ideas fit me! I'm excited. The dark side? I'm old, fearful, a procrastinator and I can be negative and critical. Marie is just what I need! You present as the exact opposite of these traits. You give me courage. You make me understand these roadblocks aren't unique to old me, they're universal, and there's hope. You offer simple solutions. I internalize them.

You've help me create an image of myself as a business woman, not just someone doing a little part-time hobby, and there's a path I'm on. Ok, I'm walking slowly on the path, I'm not where I want to be, but I'm not getting off the path, I'm just going to work harder at focusing on my destination. You give me this confidence from all the amazing people you feature, as well as the everyday people you respond to. The weekly episodes are timed so perfectly so that I get that regular dose, the shot in the arm I need to keep moving forward and not to give up.

Marie helps keep me from sliding into a slump.

Even though I may not be fully employed and raking in the big bucks, Marie has helped me realize the importance of putting in effort each day. Sure, occasionally, we deserve a day off. But in general, make an effort to make each day better than before. I actively keep myself from laziness and Marie helps keep me from sliding into a slump.

I'm dreaming bigger and broader than I even realized was possible.

Before discovering Marie, I felt like a very small fish swimming upstream in the largest, most dangerous water in the world. I had just graduated from college, was working 2 part time jobs, moved twice, didn't know how to afford rent, and was just generally unhappy with my life and the direction it was going. I landed my dream job at the age of 22 but I immediately thought that I couldn't go any further or do any better. I was prepared to become another cog in the machine and remain content in my position, but no longer have that fire driving me. And that's when a coworker recommended Marie to me on my first day of work. I immediately began binge watching and reading as much content as I could, as most people do when discovering Marie. Now, I'm helping to make huge change in the office and get to be involved in very large decisions that could completely change the culture of the company, a task I never thought would be presented to me for at least another 10 years. I'm dreaming bigger and broader than I even realized was possible. I'm finally happy and eager to continue growing for the rest of my life. I've received praise and thanks from my coworkers and boss, and I know there's only more great things to come. I can't wait to welcome all of those opportunities and experiences with open arms, thanks to Marie.

I got the guts to quit my job which led to me starting my own business.

I discovered MarieTV at a time when I needed intense inspiration. I was drowning at a 9-to-5 that I could FEEL stealing my soul day by day, and I had no idea how to escape or build something that would save me. I used to pull up MarieTV episodes via the blog and hide the browser window behind my spreadsheets and listen to Marie preach amazing-ness through my headphones. It took a good number of months (probably almost a full year) but I finally got the guts to quit my job + pursue another, more flexible job opportunity which then led to me starting my own business. I'm not entirely sure I would have had the guts to pursue this path had I not been so fired up by Marie's advice and the stories + other people I found through her. I'm not even sure it would have occurred to me that I could MAKE my own path, vs. just "finding another job." It sounds dramatic, but it's not an overstatement to say Marie helped save my soul. I recommend Marie to everyone I know who expresses even a modicum of unhappiness / discontent / malcontent / or mentions some unsatisfactory THING in their lives. Her fire on the channel mixed with the humor mixed with the amazing stories of women and men doing really awesome things is an inspiration, even for people like me who don't necessarily want to "change the world" but simply want to have control over our own world. Marie proves over and over again that basically anything is possible - anything is "figure-out-able" as she says! I use this as a regular mantra + even that simple thing helps keep me moving forward and helps prevent stagnant life.

You have inspired me to do something good with my life.

I have had a lot of trouble in my life with social anxiety for as long as I can remember. My anxiety led to having focusing problems in school, sleeping problems and I always thought something was seriously wrong with me. It breaks my heart that I never got any help then, I went through my whole childhood without someone seeing me and my desperate need for help. All of this led to a lot of troubles with alcohol and negative self talk in my teenage years and early adult life. But about three years ago I had enough! So I decided to change my life. Moved away from my hometown to study. And then the new me, or the real me, started to grow and I became a strong independent young lady! I started watching your videos on YouTube about 2 to 3 years ago when I was trying to find videos about self development, and just seeing your positive energy makes me feel stronger and I can say for sure that all your videos helped me in some way. It is much thanks to you that I am the person that I am today. Today I am happy and proud of who I am thanks to all hard work. And my biggest dream is to help people in some way, I have a huge interest in natural healing such as meditation, yoga, healthy lifestyle and massage therapy.

I can say that before I had no courage to do anything on my own. But now I travel to different countries on my own. I have learned that I can do anything I set my mind to. Three years ago I could not speak English, I actually failed my English class in school. But now I write and speak fluently! And I just moved to America to live with my best friend and love of my life. I learned to stay focused and motivated on my goals thanks to your videos. You have inspired me to do something good with my life, like helping other people, and to make a career out of it!

I DO have the resources to make something happen.

As someone who has struggled for YEARS with how to actually know how to move forward and then do it, one thing Marie said ... well, actually her mom said, changed my life. I tell people about it all the time and that is: EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE. I think it's easy for those of us who come from modest background or have generational histories of social trauma and disenfranchisement to be bogged down by the weight of despair. As the daughter of my once impoverished African American dad, I definitely inherited the hopelessness that comes from a legacy of being beaten down, having rights removed, fighting and then having one's land, home, family wrenched away no matter what you do. So, in tiny ways, that mentality would defeat my efforts. I'd start something, come upon an obstacle and grow sad, not realizing that I *could* figure it out, that I DO have the resources to make something happen. Marie - you taught me this!

I've started accepting my actual talents, the reality of who I am, as opposed to how I think I "should" be.

I can honestly say that largely thanks to all of Marie's wisdom and encouragement, I found the strength to go back to school and do a Master's degree while also working and taking care of a 1 and 3 year old. Up until the day I finished, I didn't know if I could do it. But I did finish, and with high honours. Now I am almost about to land my dream job. I know now that I am valuable and talented, and am going to keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone to get where I want to be -- and will keep watching MarieTV every week for all her valuable encouragement and support! You just can't make this stuff up! I have started accepting my actual talents, the reality of who I am, as opposed to how I think I "should" be. And I'm actually pretty great and full of creativity and ideas, as it turns out. A couple years ago I was in such a funk and felt so listless, and now I am just moving and shaking, making things happen. And it feels amazing!

Since watching MarieTV every week for six months, I've gotten published in two dream publications.

I found MarieTV by a miracle (that I can't remember), because at the time I didn't watch TV, didn't read the news, didn't keep up with Facebook, and didn't have any favorite blogs/authors/journalists/public speakers. I was essentially in a -- non-clinical, metaphorical! -- padded white room trying to write. MarieTV was the first thing that jolted me awake. Through MarieTV, I realized that writing in a vacuum wasn't working. I needed a community, to stay current, to engage with the world -- and then to write about it. Since watching MarieTV every week for six months, I've gotten published in two dream publications (Psychology Today and The Huffington Post) started a Twitter account, grown my Facebook following, gained confidence, and gotten closer to my vision of becoming an autonomous writer.

Marie has given me both the skills and hope to carry on.

I cannot even type this without pausing to cry giant, grateful, happy tears, tears very different from the ones I was crying when I first found Marie. I watched my younger brother die a horrific death from cancer, and while it was happening I knew I could never again live anything but a life I loved. Flash forward two years, and there I was, hating life so much that I often drove my car on the wrong side of the road, hoping someone would hit me. I knew I had a choice to make: die or thrive. Problem was, I didn't know how to thrive. I knew what I wanted to do – start a revolution where every body was worthy and no body was shameful – but, like everyone in my life kept reminding me, I had no idea how to finance this passion. Then one day someone shared Marie's interview with Maysoon Zayid on Facebook. Here were two amazing women making careers out of igniting change. "Create a life and business you love" seemed so radical to my depressed brain at the time that it felt impossible, yet here I was watching video after video with concrete steps on how to do just that. A few months later, I called my credit card company and begged them to up my limit so I could pay for B-School. It was worth every penny. Yes, the content is spectacular and I use the material as a guidebook for running my business, but the most potent piece of information I have gotten from Marie's work is that I am not alone. Building a life and business I love is possible and there are thousands of people just like me doing it every day. Marie has given me both the skills and the hope to carry on. Thank you.

I was finally able to break my family's cycle of poverty.

I was born in poverty, and for much of my adult life, I continued to live in poverty. I was frequently bullied as one of the only poor kids in an upper-middle-class town, and my teenage years were as miserable as my childhood. I finally "got out" by moving across the country for college. Shortly after I graduated, the economy tanked. Like many millennials, I made $10-12/hr occasionally (whenever there were any temporary, part-time jobs available). I struggled to pay my student loans and had to go on Income-Based Repayment. I attempted to go to graduate school a couple of times in a more marketable field, but kept getting discouraged by the length of time it would require and dropped out. I gained over 40 pounds and looked terrible -- I didn't take care of myself and just didn't think there was anything I could do about it. In my darkest days, I would obsess over my former classmates' success (while at the same time hating them for being more privileged than me, chalking everything up to my poor upbringing).

I did volunteer for random groups in an attempt to make myself feel better, but that would only give me a temporary high -- as soon as it was over, I would return to my run-down apartment and remember how bad my life was. I did attempt to apply to higher-paying jobs, but nothing ever panned out. Some employers actually scolded my unsteady and unimpressive work history to my face; others told me that I was shady for job-hopping. When I posted on an unemployment message board, people immediately jumped on me, called me a liar/bum/idiot and expressed disbelief that I was unable to find work (given where I had gone to school). I began to think of myself as a shady, worthless person as well. When I found Marie's video randomly on YouTube one day, I couldn't believe how gently and yet poignantly she helped those who were very lost. This was not something I'd ever seen before, in real life or on the web.

Her no-excuses attitude and building a life step-by-step strategies have helped me get off my a** and start doing the little things that led to the big things. I turned those part-time, temporary jobs into real references (using Marie's advice of asking for testimonials). I volunteered in a very targeted manner (in the industry I wanted to work in), not just for random organizations like I did in the past. I listened to Marie's advice on not having the "scarcity mindset" and forced myself to be generous, despite being worried about my income. I produced samples of my work in my own time, even when my actual jobs didn't create them, as Marie suggested in her videos. Within a few years, I had turned those low-paying jobs into $20/hr jobs. Soon, the $20/hr jobs became $25/hr jobs. One day, an opportunity to take a small, part-time position for $38/hr came up. I immediately jumped on the opportunity, used the higher wage as leverage at my next job, and then broke into the low six figures by the time I turned 30. Without Marie's extreme honesty about the LENGTH of time and the million pieces it takes to build something whole, I would have just continued staying in poverty, felt that having money was for those lucky people who could just get everything at once, and gave up. Although I am not an entrepreneur, Marie's advice applies to EVERYTHING in life. No one (other than the very fortunate/blessed) just wakes up just wakes up and gets everything all at once. I was so entranced by her story -- her willingness to work all sorts of low-standing jobs in order to build something great someday. And, whenever I wanted to give up because something bad happened or things didn't work out, I would just tune in to another episode of MarieTV and feel the courage to try again. Advice from her video has helped me face down many of my life's harshest problems, from learning to forgive to pulling myself up from poverty to not being angry at skeptics. She truly is a life coach. I am *not* an aspiring life/health coach, entrepreneur, SAHM, or charismatic blogger -- basically, I am not the typical consumer of Marie's products. I am just a normal person who grew up in poverty and continued to live in poverty until a few years ago. Because of her unique blend of practical advice and inspiration, I was finally able to break my family's cycle of poverty.

Each time I am about to give up, the weekly episodes lift me up. The MarieTV episodes give form, logic and encouragement to what otherwise would be pure chaos.

Before discovering Marie, I felt alone and overwhelmed. I started a business in French (English is my 1st language). I had no contacts, no clients, no support group. Each episode encouraged me to continue. There was one episode on "Everything Is Figureoutable." Each time I am about to give up, the weekly episodes lift me up. I thrive when I have a mentor. In my current city, I have no mentors, no family, no elders ... and I'm really just lost floating out at sea. The Marie TV episodes give form, logic and encouragement to what otherwise would be pure chaos.

I am a tenured psychology professor at an Ivy League school – so it's easy for me to be a bit skeptical about "life coaches." I am coming out of the closet to say thank you for your weekly videos. They are always informative, inspiring and funny! You know the "pain point" of many of us who are trying to get the word out about something that they are so inspired to bring to the world – yet, are struggling to make it happen. With humor and clarity you are able to illuminate these bumps in the road – in bite-size digestible pieces – in your weekly videos. I never feel hard-sold on anything. I get your positive intention to bring your gifts to the world and help others to do the same. Thanks for your generosity. My message to students is "follow your bliss" – and you are one of the examples I use to demonstrate how to work hard and have fun!!

There is real value in MarieTV, and it's free.

What I enjoy about Marie TV is that you address issues pertaining both to business development and the inner game we all have to deal with if we are to live positively oriented lives. In my life it's helped me deal with stumbling blocks in developing my business model. You've made me realize, with respect to my business goals, that one brick at a time is how a house gets built. Just keep laying them down, it will happen. There is real value in MarieTV, and it's free. That in itself makes it an asset and a tool, easily accessible.

In the summer of 2014 I was burnt out in a 25+year career in the fashion industry. I love working hard but for the first time in my life didn't know what kind of work I wanted to do. I'm not a big self-help person and I prefer a more DIY approach with a little (personal) tough love thrown in. I started to take my mid-life crisis into my own hands and do what any GenXer would do, I Googled career advice. A few things popped up, and then I had to Google how to write a letter to get out of a commitment. BAM! Marie's site popped up and the letter was a success. I started checking out her site and fell down the Marie rabbithole. It was perfect timing. I signed up for MarieTV and her weekly email and over the next year found the courage to leave my job and start my own business. Thank you Marie & your whole team for giving me something to think about every Tuesday!

Marie's video teaching gave me encouragement and inspiration for the preparations of my future.

I have undergone tremendous changes and trials through my life for several recent years without my own will. Experiencing a series of frustrations, I held grudges and thirsted for revenge without any future. However, after coming across MarieTV, I came to reflect on my life and began to look at my life from a different perspective. I realized that my remaining future is more important and precious than any other past. Marie video teaching gave me encouragement and inspiration for the preparations of my future. Since then, I made it a rule to watch her video every week to learn wisdom from it. At the beginning, it was not easy for me to understand MarieTV fully because English is not my mother tongue. I struggled with the English of MarieTV. Watching MarieTV led me to find my value and potential. I gained self-confidence and at the same time I improved my English. I decided to start a voluntary service to teach English for my neighbors by sparing some time every Saturday in spite of my busy schedule. My students, mostly adults including retired senior members, are interested in improving their English as well as looking for a meaningful life. I introduced MarieTV to my English class. My students try to make self-innovation, being influenced by Marie. I really appreciate Marie TV which help me catch up with the changes of time, so I can challenge the second half of my life.

Marie you have helped me in so many ways. I have so many goals and sometimes balancing my job, my personal life and projects can get overwhelming. But when I'm overwhelmed I stop and take a moment to watch MarieTV. This instantly calms me down and helps me refocus. In fact I used to be subscribed to too many newsletters. It was chaotic.

I believe in myself more ... my life has never been better.

Making decisions is a difficult step to take on. Maybe for some people they find it easy, but it's definitely not for me. I had a limitless amount of pressure at work. One day, after coming home from work, I remember it was at 9:00 PM on a Tuesday. I literally typed in "how to make decisions" on YouTube - and little did I know, I was about to subscribe at one of my favorite YouTube channels ever – MarieTV pops up. I watched the video of making decisions on MarieTV (and other videos of course until, surprisingly, 2 AM) and started applying them the second I woke up on the next day. My life has never been better because from there on I believe that decision making will be eventually decided by me and not anyone else. From now on, the question of "How if you fail?" will always be answered by saying "But how if I fly?" - I believe in myself more and positive vibe is definitely my new middle name. And yes Marie, thank you for being there for me!

While hospitalized during my life threatening journey with cancer, I found MarieTV in 2013. Week after week, Marie put a smile on my face when it was very hard to find one and although her positive inspiration was directed to her audience of entrepreneurs, her message resonated directly with me ... 1) Find a life that you love and 2) the world needs that special gift that only you have to offer. It was hard to believe I was in exactly the place I really needed to be ... heck I was near death ... why should I be there and come on, did I have a gift to offer? But to move forward I had to find HOPE ... Having Only Positive Expectations. And after a few months of being constantly motivated by Marie, I decided I would survive and when I did, I would find a way to make a difference. Now as my values & direction have changed due to my journey with cancer, my path is to be of service to others and I'm so grateful that MarieTV is there every week to help guide me forward.

Jenni and I tune into MarieTV religiously and you have a way of helping us just at the right time.

My future business partner Jenni introduced me to MarieTV shortly after we were both let go at an agency in the Bay Area just three weeks before Christmas 2013. We were feeling a little lost and low as we were desperately looking for jobs at the worst time of year. After a couple of months of supporting one another through job searching and bringing in the new year without a clear career plan, Jenni forwarded me one of the MarieTV episodes that changed our mindsets about the situation we were both in and ultimately changed the course of our lives significantly. The episode was called 'The Mental Exercise That Can Turn Wishes Into Reality' in which you talked about the power of brainstorming for creative breakthroughs.

Jenni and I each completed the suggested sentence: "Wouldn't it be great if..." and we both came up with the same answer that would help us control our own destiny. "Wouldn't it be great if we went into business together, combined our skill sets and created our own marketing company!" Up until that point we weren't finding the jobs we wanted so we decided to create the jobs we wanted and ideal life we want to lead. Just a few weeks later Prim'd Marketing was born! Jenni and I tune into MarieTV religiously and you have a way of helping us just at the right time - either finding a solution to a problem with a client, stepping away from the business when it's getting too much to get perspective or making us think about an issue differently that shifts us into a better mindset.

I came across Marie while searching YouTube for good branding examples, and I found Marie's episode on Poo-Pourri. I was rolling on the floor with laughter literally two seconds into it. At that time I didn't even know Poo-Pourri existed, so I assumed it was an invention of this hilarious new comedian woman. I signed up for her newsletter on the spot, expecting more funny videos. But the first email came and I soon realized my mistake. "Huh", I thought, "another self-proclaimed life coach with their cheap Psychology. I should unsubscribe right now". But for some reason I didn't. I watched that week's video and, a little bit ashamed of myself, actually liked it. So I opened the next one. And the next.

We all have times when we feel "less than" and if we let that little voice keep talking it can sideline us for an hour, a day, or a week.

I remember these snippets at times when I am feeling "less than" and they really help me stay motivated. Sometimes I say to myself: "What would Marie do?"

Having MarieTV is like a little cheering section, helping me move forward week by week with new ideas. With each new idea, my business and life balance improve so that I see massive changes and growth each year.

I've been running my business for the last five years and it now supports me and my husband. Together, we create books and online classes. I go for a walk and listen to MarieTV to keep me focused each week. It's my weekly check in so that I don't get overwhelmed or feel isolated in pursuing my dreams. Each episode makes me laugh and gives so much positivity and hope. There's always a bit of advice that I can apply to my business or personal routine. It's part of my balance. For me, it's all been in the consistency. Having MarieTV to watch each week is like a little cheering section, helping me move forward week by week with new ideas. With each new idea, my business and life balance improve so that I see massive changes and growth each year.

Marie is that mentor we've been wishing for who spoke our language, understands our struggles and gives sound advice that we can apply without even knowing us in person!

Marie is that mentor we've been wishing for who spoke our language, understands our struggles and gives sound advice that we can apply without even knowing us in person! The biggest change would have been our self-confidence. We are more assured of ourselves and the decisions that we make, regardless of them being well planned or acted on impulse, we know we will make things work. Marie has definitely reminded us time and again that we are bound to make mistakes and to achieve great things all at same time. The change was deep within ourselves and, in return, changed our lives and business for the better.

Your messaging has resonated for me and been a genuine confidence booster.

I relate to Marie tremendously and identify with many of the struggles she talks about on MarieTV. It's scary to put yourself out there, but when you have big dreams it's very helpful and reassuring to have someone like Marie who's making it happen to reinforce your inner aspirations. Watching (and cracking up at) Marie has helped me to re-center on my goals time and time again, and to keep on keeping on! Her balanced approach is important, too. I've ditched the guilty feeling of having time for myself to reenergize, exercise, etc. so I can be at my best. She's like the super confident sister I always wanted (I'm an only child). ;) Insecurity, self-defeat and comparison are such common dream-killers in our culture, especially for women. Marie has done a fantastic job of sharing her insights and being so real about it. I respect the work that you all do so very much. Keep inspiring! Your messaging has certainly resonated for me and been a genuine confidence booster.

Marie is hilarious, empathetic, and she gives damn good advice.

Marie is hilarious, empathetic, and she gives damn good advice. I immediately signed up for her newsletter and would anxiously squirm around in my sad little cubicle every Tuesday waiting for her weekly email. Throughout those seven months, when I was freaking out about not finding the perfect job or struggling to get up everyday to a job I hated, Marie was always there to help keep me grounded, present, and focused. For me, the best part was that she made me laugh through it all. She is not some boring ol' life coach who touts her experience all over you. She genuinely connects with people at all levels. Thank you for helping me find what I love, Marie!

You're REAL, authentic, genuine, funny, and someone that (without ever meeting you) I can trust.

Marie, I think you are effing awesome! You show up as yourself and allow the whole world (us) to see every part of who you are, as comfortable or as uncomfortable as that may be. You're REAL, authentic, genuine, funny, and someone that (without ever meeting you), I can trust. How do I know that? Your vibe. Your vibe is just on point and I love everything you do and bring to the table. Keep being yourself because you're kicking ass! What I LOVE most about you is your willingness and courage to be seen. That is what I aspire to be for others as well, as hard as it may be.

In a time where information is overflowing, I am very careful about who I want to follow ... YOU are the first person I followed so regularly on the internet.

In a time where information is overflowing, I am very careful about who I want to follow. I can feel overwhelmed very quickly. So I try to be very mindful about the choices I make, especially around digital information. It is so easy to surf on the internet for hours without intentions and have nothing really accomplished at the end. So YOU are the first person I followed so regularly on the internet. Actually, knowing that you are posting something every Tuesday has been so cool. It is part of my routine now. I sometimes even think about the fact that it's Tuesday and I will have few minutes of inspiration thanks to you. I am looking forward to my Tuesday dose of inspiration :-) And I want to thank you for that from the bottom of my heart.

She's there for you with support when the world breaks your heart.

Marie is like a sassy and sophisticated sister whose light shines like a constant beam in your life with her weekly show, MarieTV. She's there for you with support when the world breaks your heart and reminds you that you have a purpose and reason for being here. As much as all of Marie's practical business advice has helped me, more than anything, I'm grateful for how she reminds me on a regular basis that happiness is truly an inside job. Marie is a wonderful role model for anyone who wants to take charge of their own life and career and give as much as possible while on this Earth.

I listen in hopes of being a better person than I was the day before because of something...

One day you were in my inbox but I can't for the life of me remember how you got there. I just know that every Tuesday I look forward to what you have to share. First and foremost you make me smile (and sometimes cry - in a good way) and I feel a sense of lightness when I watch. I tweet your tweetables, sometimes I dance with you, I read the books you suggest and I listen in hopes of being a better person than I was the day before because of something you shared.

Marie's allowed me to discover that I can change things about myself that I thought were permanent.

The biggest influence Marie has had on me is allowing me to discover that I can change things about myself that I thought were permanent. As lame as it may sound, she made self improvement seem cool. Being able to change how I see myself allowed me to have a clear vision of what I want both my personal and professional life to be and the steps I need to take to get there.

Marie's videos provided me a sense of comfort, confidence and hope I could not find elsewhere. And I knew, that she meant it all. Every word, every thought was sincere and honest.

Marie's videos provided me a sense of comfort, confidence and hope I could not find elsewhere. And I knew, that she meant it all. Every word, every thought was sincere and honest. She did not speak a "power-therapy" language pimped up with buzz words and Utopian new-age pseudo-philosophy, she was just reflecting upon the truth with a staggering logical approach. Marie has been keeping me company ever since an internet search 3 years ago. One thing she taught me is to believe in yourself. To pursue your dreams, but to be wise at the same time. Life is too short to not have fun, and it's too short to be wasted as well. Marie Forleo has changed my life by teaching me that by being yourself you can change people's world. By being herself, Marie sure did change mine, and for that I am truthfully thankful.

In short, Marie helped restore my confidence in myself in a way that no one else had been...

When I first found Marie online, I was at one of the lowest points in my life. I was the heaviest I'd ever been, failing to get my business off the ground in a way that made me feel proud to call it mine, and had just had my heart broken by my childhood sweetheart and partner of eight years. I immediately enrolled in B-School and binge-watched past episodes of MarieTV. I made Marie a part of my mornings, revisiting key lessons and episodes as a way to help me break through the obstacles and make it through the day. In short, Marie helped restore my confidence in myself in a way that no one else had been able to do. As a result, my business began to boom, I became clearer on my vision and path, and most importantly -- I finally started taking action, true and meaningful steps to creating a "business and life that I love!"

To be honest, my first impressions of Marie were that she was too "American" to me.

To be honest, my first impressions of Marie were that she was too "American" to me. But I began watching MarieTV for a number of years and was always lifted up after watching the videos. Marie managed to give me a sense of purpose with my message and for myself with such powerful messages of possibility for anyone - to make our dreams come true! I noticed how suddenly the dream of having an online business didn't seem so far fetched or silly. It felt really possible! I then joined B-School in 2014 and I was absolutely blown away with the insights and the connections I made in a short amount of time. Big things have happened since then. The key thing I now have, which I never had before meeting Marie, is a deep sense of purpose that my message matters and needs to be shared.

She displayed a belief in complete abundance in the way I had never seen before in how she supports others.

You could call me a late starter, a late bloomer ... In fact many people my age are starting to retire. At 63 years old I am starting a new life. For 30 years I worked in the corporate world in sales, as a marketing professional and consultant and then another 15 years running my own business in fashion. From the outside looking in, you would think I was tremendously successful. I was never without work, I was consistently recognized and promoted, I progressed up the ladder, stood out, made good money, impressed my superiors. All good but something was missing and I didn't know this until much later. It never occurred to me to consider: Did I truly love my work? Was my work an expression of my values and purpose? What was my purpose anyway? I never even thought about that. It wasn't until 13 years into my fashion business, I started to feel like something was wrong. Couldn't put my finger on it but I had this uneasy feeling that something had to change. Then 2008 came down on us, my business took a huge hit and it was just what I needed to affect my bank account and re-evaluate my life! So where does Marie Forleo come into all this? Well, over the last 6 years I have poured myself into personal development, reading, studying, attending workshops, seminars, taking online courses. I have literally spent thousands of dollars on my personal education. Marie was a complete fluke but an incredibly lucky one for me. I found her one evening as I was browsing the sites of other health coaches.

Here were my first impressions: she was authentic, real, funny, smart, savvy, seemed to truly care and held the belief that we all have gifts that are uniquely ours and that we can each develop. She displayed a belief in complete abundance in the way I had never seen before in how she supports others. She has not a competitive bone in her body. Plus – she is soooooo fair in the way she prices her B-School course and allows us complete access indefinitely (just for the record, I had subscribed to another course more than twice as expensive, poorly organized, confusing, seemed more of a sounding board for the king coach, and after it was done we were shut down unless we paid a monthly subscription fee. No thank you). She shares everything. Holds nothing back.

There are times when I'm totally in the dumps and that little voice inside tells me there's no possible way I'm going to make this work. Every time that happens now, I just shift into the Marie mindset – everything is possible. Anything is possible. Do your homework, do your research, keep putting one foot in front of the other, never give up, tackle the tough stuff – even if you don't want to. Micro steps every day with an eye on the vision you wish to create.
