You have gifts to share with the world and my job is to help you get them out there.

Did you know this whole MarieTV shebang started exactly one year ago?

That’s right. MarieTV aired its first official episode right after the New Year and we’ve been pumping out badass weekly videos ever since.

In today’s very special Anniversary edition, I’ll share my vision for the next year of MarieTV, plus I’m giving YOU a gift.

It’s a simple yet powerful planning toolkit to help you get more done in the next 12 months than you’ve got done in the past 3 years!

In fact, this mirrors the exact process my team and I go through to stay focused and on point… and we accomplish A LOT.

This simple, downloadable planning toolkit will help you:

  • Get clear on what’s most important to accomplish in the year ahead
  • Narrow your massive list down to the top ten “must get done” projects
  • Create a clear, month-by-month action plan so you know exactly what to do (and not do) to stay out of overwhelm and reach your goals
  • Laser in on ONE thing that will give you the biggest edge this year and beyond

Once you’ve watched the video, access your 3-part free planning toolkit below.

Also our team is always busy creating new MarieTV episodes for you and we want to make them as relevant and useful as possible. So tell me… What specific challenge in your business or life are you actively trying to solve right now? I’d love to know!

In the comments below, tell me what YOU are inspired to create this year, as well as the specific insights you gained from using your brand new planning toolkit.

Which reminds me. The planning toolkit, while beautiful and awesome, does not fill itself out. You need to follow the instructions and actually USE it if you want results.

Strategic planning exercises like this are what separates the wannabes from the winners so don’t screw around, OK? Take action and do it NOW.

Step #1 – Creating Your Top Ten List:

  1. In a journal or on a blank piece of paper, brainstorm ALL of the things you want to accomplish this year.  This is in addition to what needs to happen to keeping your company running. Really think through this and make sure that your list includes both personal goals (vacations, spending time with family, getting healthy, etc.) and professional goals (individual projects you want to accomplish that will help to grow your company like build list by X percent, develop and launch product on X, split test and update my website to get better traffic, etc.).
  2. Now circle all of the “must get done this year” items that you REALLY want to make happen. Ideally the things you circle will contain both personal and professional goals.
  3. Look at what you circled and pick the top 10 things you want to accomplish this year.
  4. Download our “Top Ten List” worksheet, and write in the top 10 things from your brainstorm list that you absolutely want to accomplish this year. Make sure you are very specific with what you write down and list goals that are measurable. For example, if you want to get in better shape, don’t just write “lose weight,” instead write “go to the gym for one hour 3X per week.”

Step #2 – Creating Your Action Plan:

  1. Download and open up the the next worksheet titled “My Action Plan.”
  2. You can either print it out, type directly in the sheet (make sure you’re using Adobe Reader, not “Preview” if you want to save your info directly in the PDF) and print later or save it to your computer.
  3. Go through the brainstorm list that you created and start transferring items into each month.  Start by adding in things you know will take place in a particular month. Examples of this would be vacations you know about now, things you know are required in your business during certain months (i.e. tax time, getting ready for holiday sales, etc.).
  4. Now go back over your Top Ten List and add in one major item to each month in your action plan. Generally the months of August and December are more personal life oriented (i.e. treat yourself to some time off baby!) and the rest of the months are growth oriented.
  5. Be aggressive but realistic with yourself.  New projects always take longer than you think so be sure to distinguish between “creation” time and launch time.  This also means you need to find a balance between leading the life you want to lead (vacations and time with family), keeping your business afloat by continuing the day to day activities that are required (keep the ship running stuff), and planning for growth by knowing what projects will grow your business and mapping out which month you will tackle each individual project.
  6. When you’re done with this exercise, you’ll have clear map of the most important projects and activities to accomplish during each month this year. This will help you focus on what is important in each individual month instead of having a gazillion goals roaming around in your head all year long scattering your focus from what you really should be doing!

Step #3 – Nailing Down Your One Big Idea For The Year:

  1. Look at your Top Ten List and really think about what you top money making idea is this year.
  2. Download the “My Big Idea” sheet and write your top money making idea on it.
  3. This step is super important – make sure sure you don’t just do this exercise and then forget about it. Post it as the screensaver on your computer, print and tape it to your wall, put it on your refrigerator, or anything else you need to do to remind yourself of it every single day.
  4. Remember – this is the single most important thing you need to focus on this year. That means you need to make sure you look at it every day.  And as you make moves and decisions in your life and business this year make sure you are continually going back to this one goal and taking the necessary actions to make it happen.

Good luck with this process and please keep me updated on how this works out for you.

I can personally attest that these simple exercises have MAJORLY increased the productivity and focus in my business and life and I want you to experience that same success.

Thanks, as always for tuning in, and Happy New Year!

  1. Hi Marie!

    Happy New Year to you too! I think your followers would take the survey even if you didn’t give them a planning tool 🙂

    Wish you a freaking awesome year!

  2. Hi Marie,

    Thanks so much for your amazing and inspirational work, ideas, advice and love that you give to us!

    The very best to you in the New Year (and beyond!)


  3. Happy 1st Birthday MarieTV!

    Thanks for the tool kit … can’t wait to start using it! You’ve inspired me so much over the last few months – CAN’T WAIT to see what 2012 has in store for all of us! (I think it’s gonna be HUUUUGE!)

    Rock on and Happy New Year!

    PS – love your dress!

  4. Hi Marie 🙂


    You guys really do such a great job on MarieTV, and congrats again for winning an AWARD for it!! (Here’s the link to read about it

    There is such a perfect melody of fun, information, inspiration and true creativity building in each and every episode. You really can see how you are supporting each and every viewer with your heart and soul! Brilliant.

    My inspirations and goals this year and uber creative & fun… yet whilst really grounding it in a structure and consistency (which you whip my butt on!) My own vids are taking on an amazing life of their own. They have got me in all kinds of situations that I wouldn’t have otherwise done! (like dancing at the top of the Empire State Building!~ you’ll have to join us next time!)

    … and now I’m thrilled to be creating my programs and products that have been brewing in my mind these past 12 months.

    I really do have to say that another big goal of mine is to support you more in reaching your goals and audience this year. The information you share is so valuable and kick-starts so many people’s butt’s into a direction (that they actually want to go in.) And I know that my audience and outreach needs this info.

    I’m so excited for what 2012 will bring for us all, and thanks to the amazing connection of AWESOME ladies and guys who I have been honored to meet through Bschool (who are now really close friends), and watching everyone… Just Do It!

    Rock on woman!


    off to survey you up now 🙂

  5. Happy New Year to you and your team and happy anniversary on MarieTV – AND a big THANK YOU for the cool planning tool –

  6. Heather

    Hi Marie,
    Firstly, Happy New Year!:-)
    I completed the survey twice now, as I didn’t receive the email with the planning tool the first time, and still don’t seem to have gotten it? Have checked my spam folder as well and there’s no sign of it, could you please let me know if I’m doing something wrong here? Many thanks!

    • Louise

      It’s Louise and I work with Marie. I just sent you an email with the link to the planning toolkit. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

      • Hi Louise!

  9. Rita

    Happy happy New Year to you too Marie!!
    I’ve been following you for more than two years now! (Lol that sounds creepy) but I’ve learned so much from your advice and I just wanted to say thank you for everything. 🙂 You rock! I really really wish to experience one of your seminars soon!
    Have a wonderful 2012 may all your wishes come true! 🙂

  10. Louise Russell

    Hi Marie! MarieTV *is* amazing!
    This is the year I, as one of my goals, is systematize my coaching program into a packaged product and I’m looking forward to using your free gift (thank you!) to get me started and completing this!

  11. Happy anniversary!
    Thanks for the toolkit, look forward to downloading it.

  12. G’morning Marie + world

    Your videos have inspired me so much and have helped me shift my focus to creating programs from a positive, creative place, where I think out of the box and am not hampered by what I think I should or shouldn’t do. I couldn’t agree more than 2012 is going to be big, um, HUGE! Starting today, I am launching a weekly video newsletter including tips on how to Eat well. Be happy. Love life.

    If that rings a bell with anyone, come check me out at

    Scary, but I am embracing it with open arms. The greater the fear, the bigger the reward right? Thanks always for the inspiration!
    xo Johanna

  13. Fantastic and fun as always Marie! Thank you for the 2012 gift and look forward to the next initiation of B-Schoolers. 2011 totally took a major turn for the stars because of aligning with your community. ((( grateful )))

  14. Happy New Year, Congrats to you and thanks for the inspiration.

  15. Kay

    Hey Marie,
    Congrats on your anniversary! (long time watcher, first time poster).
    You have done an amazing job of inspiring us and I cant wait to see what you will bring in 2012.

    As foe myself, I am planning to make 2012 my year! I have set an intention to get my health coaching certification, which will enable me to help women suffering from chronic illnesses. I also want to write a holistic book on living with autoimmune diseases and build an online platform for women with these illnesses to find solutions, comfort and support. I know it’s a lot, but I think I can, I think I can, I think I can….

    • Kay

      Hmm, I didn’t receive the download link either. Perhaps a glitch?

      • I didn’t get one either, FYI. But like the others said, I would have taken the survey without an incentive 🙂

      • Louise

        It’s Louise (from Marie’s team). I just emailed you the planning tool. Hope it gets your year rockin’.
        Take care,

        • Kay

          Got it. Thanks!

  16. Happy New Year Marie, and congratulations for your first year.Your videos always made me laugh and fill me with lot of positive energy, thank you for that. The goal I want to acomplish this year is to create my cupcake and cookies store, and a sugar figurine online store for cake decorators comunity. Is kinda ambitious project but I hope to stay focused and could acomplished and of course I got your wisdom to help me. Thank you so much.

  17. Wow! I can’t believe Marie TV is only one year old! It is so inspiring not to mention organized, refined and entertaining. I love the downloads – what a great visual tool to kick off my planning for 2012. As always, thanks so much Marie for your great insights!!

  18. Girl, you just EXACTLY what I need and when I need it! Everything in the toolkit is precisely what I’ve been working on the last 48 hrs. No bull, on my to-do list was an entry to create an action plan document, and then BAM, today you hook it up! THANK YOU Marie, you’ve done it once again.
    Happy New Year! I know you’re gonna kick 2012’s ass just like you did 2011!

    Rachel Luna

  19. Hey Marie,

    thank you so much for your inspiration and your toolkit! :o) The Top10-list was very helpful, because it forced me to be clear with PRIORITIES. I changed “My one big money maker” to “My one most important goal for my own happiness and for others” because at the moment I am not yet up to become an entrepeneur.

    Happy New Year!
    Let´s create an amazing 2012!


  20. Happy Anniversary! You are such a cutie all dressed up in you white cocktail dress! I have big BIG plans this year and am so glad I found you-I certainly will share you with my peeps because you do bring life to the party!

  21. hahaha, “what are you so excited about it will make you rip your panties off…” I’m in a coffee shop, guffawing. Thanks for the planning tool, I totally needed that! xo

  22. Thanks to inspiration from you and my other “virtual mentors,” I’m putting out a book in the next couple of months!! Thank you so much!

  23. Happy New Year, Marie! Thanks for the planning toolkit. This is going to help me to narrow my goals down. And congrats on winning your award! 🙂

  24. Marie,
    You’re the best! Look forward to your weekly videos… Thank you so much for your inspirational work, ideas, advice that you share! I am super super excited about using your planning tool!! thank you! and happy new year!!

  25. Stephanie

    Does it take a while for the email with the link to come through? I haven’t got mine yet….

  26. First of all, you should do every Q&A Tuesday in a cocktail dress! So fun!

    Looking over my top 10, I realize they are all really about staying on task, so I took your calendar, took some stuff I learned in RHH B-school but have been neglecting, and dedicated a standing time each week to each of the items I could.

    My calendar is looking good!

    Thank you!!

  27. Happy New Year!

    I filled out the survey but did not get a link to the planning tool. I checked my spam folder and nothing is in it. Could you please send it to me? Thank you.

    • Louise

      I replied to your email with the link to the planning tool! Thank you so much for diving it and I hope it’s a spark plug for your year.

  28. Happy New Year

    I filled out the survey but did not get the tool. Could you please send it to me ? Thank you.

  29. took the survey(twice) and haven’t rec’d the kit. could you please email me one?

    • Louise

      That email should be zipping its way to you but I just emailed you the direct page link so you can get started right away!

  30. Hi Marie,

    Many thanks for your gift!! I’m off to start working on my year plan : )

    Happy New Year!!

  31. I’m going to be making my first e-book which I really want to turn into a real, live published book. I am finishing my MA degree this May and am not sticking with that career path of academia/teaching as I thought I would so I have no choice but to move forward and forge my own path!

    I will be building my website and personal brand this year- and starting a new blog to help small businesses!

  32. Feliz Nuevo Año! Love all your videos, and looking forward to your QnA Martes:)

  33. Hey Marie,

    Congrats on the award, and many congrats on your first year anniversary! I haven’t taken a look at the info you sent me yet, but in 2012 I specifically am going to:

    Do more work on my website to include more details about my services, add a shop and interview small business owners that create products that I think would benefit my clients
    Cultivate more speaking roles
    Personally connect with more people online and offline

    Happy 2012!

  34. Thank you, obrigada!!

  35. Paula

    Thanks for this exercise. It’s short enough to undertake in one sitting and I’ve refined my goals well enough to actually get started on them instead of planning, planning, planning!

  36. Anitra

    Awesome to find out I share my birthday with marie TV! 🙂

  37. Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary! We love your tips and advice ~ keep them coming!

  38. Kerri Affronti

    Thanks Marie. Inspiring Video this Morning. I’m Inspired! You, Inspired? We’re Inspired!

    Sending Love,


  39. Hi Marie,

    Thanks for the toolkit, I need something just like that to keep me on the straight and narrow!

    This year I’m going to start a newsletter, that I want to build into the best DSLR resource of a newsletter ever for beginners…

    I have a really good feeling about this year and I’m ready to take on whatever I have to, to make it the best year ever for my business and beyond!

    Thanks for continually inspiring me and helping to feel that I’m not on my own out here!

  40. Congratulations on a year of great work! I completed the survey but didn’t receive the email with planning tools. Would love to see your process, as today is my day to turn noodles of the past couple months into commitments.

    • Just got em! Thanks and will post any meaningful impact.

      Meanwhile, I’ve been meaning to write you to report the impact of the Instant Money Maker campaign from earlier this summer. Generated over $50k in new revenue over a four month period. Not completely instant (though about $12k of that was within 4 weeks!) In addition, I continued to diversify my client base/revenue sources (another goal of last year). One more thing thanks to your year-end video: upped my a la carte pricing for the first time in at least six years, and when I gave a heads up to some long-standing clients, they thanked me for my work and said I was worth every penny.

      Thanks for all your help, Marie. I share your content liberally with my clients and know that there’ll be a time when I’m ready to graduate to your more sophisticated (read PAYED) engagement offerings.

  41. Thanks for your videos in 2011. In January 2011 my father passed away unexpectedly and my business was stalled. I felt like I wanted to give up and my mind got the best of me. Your videos came just in time. You talked about the book “Do The Work” James Pressfield -and that turned me around immediately. I put on my big girl pants and started cranking. Now I am happy to say that 2011 was the highest revenue generated in my business of 8 years (and actually my entire business career).
    Looking forward to 2012. Please do more events in NYC. I had to miss the last ones because of my travel schedule.


  42. Woooooo! Big, big congrats on your one-year anniversary!!

    And I feel like I’m getting a double gift with the planner and survey, because I’m a dork and I love taking surveys. 😉

    What am I inspired to create this year? Storybooks featuring my cute, little family of mouse characters. And, I’ve been so fired up about the project that I’ve been goal-setting like a fiend and knocking out my projects task list, so I know these books are going to be a reality this year.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Marie! Off to take that survey now…

  43. Woohoooo, Marie!!!! Congratulations and happy anniversary. Thanks for all the amazing tips and content you provide. Such an inspiration 🙂

  44. Happy New Year & Anniversary! Keep rocking it girl!!! 🙂

  45. Congrats Marie! I am so thankful for you this year and all the generosity you have shown to me this year. I didn’t get a chance to finish the form but I got my planning tool anyway. I can email more comments if you’d like 🙂 I also love that you gave a step-by-step guide and I appreciate that it looks great too! 🙂

  46. I completed the survey but I didn’t get my material! 🙁

  47. The #1 thing I’m inspired to create this year is
    An online running community providing support and motivation for beginning runners and walkers.
    The intention is to empower others to use running to change their lives in a way that is fun and feels good.
    Can’t wait!

  48. Oh, I’m sorry. I just received it. But I was so excited I couldn’t wait! Thank you so much!

  49. Happy A. Marie, and Happy New Year too!!
    You are the best and I LOVE my Marie TV!!

    You’ve made a huge difference in my biz this year, and Marie TV has been a fun, look- forward- to moment of each week. Party on.. so happy to be by your side in 2012!!
    A BIG SHOUT OUT TO LOUISE TOO!!! Love ya girl!!

    Holli xoxo

  50. just found you a month ago when looking for information for women running businesses….love your tips,and unconvnetional way of looking at things! My plans this year? To make my business make huge PROFITS!

  51. Julie

    Hi. I am new to your site, I really love your videos! This is really inspiring me to reach my business goals like never before.
    I completed the survey but did not get an email with a link to the pdf (I have no spam filters on).
    Thanks again for all you do!

    • Louise

      I just sent you an email with the tool kit information! Have fun planning!

  52. You are all such party animals! 😉 Love it.

    I am so inspired by the year ahead, and I’ve got a lot of writing waiting to come out and play.

    • marie

      awesome Nat! I’m So thrilled to watch you continue to soar!! 🙂 xo M

  53. Mia

    Woot Woot! Loved your first episode and appreciate every one since then. Thanks to you and your team for great content, lots of laughs and always starting my Tuesdays off with the right energy! Congratulations, Marie!

    • marie

      Thank you Mia!

  54. Pen

    I was laughing my butt off because my party horn didnt make noise either….maybe someone should look into why, out of three million horns, the one you want to use doesnt work?
    Thanks for another great video and the planning tool, Marie!!

    • marie

      You are so welcome.

  55. Qaadira

    As usual, you are right on time with the planning tool! I filled out the survey, but got a “page not found” after I clicked the link to get my goodies. Do send soon. Thanks

    • Louise

      I’ll email you the information right away! Thank so much and here’s to a magical 2012.

  56. Happy Anniversary Marie! Wishing you continued abundance in the New Year.

    2012 is all about Talisman Tails – custom pet portraits in fused glass! I’ve been doing these under my biz for the last several months and created the new biz name on January 1st – woo hoo! This combines two of my passions – love of animals and creating beauty in the world. I am extra motivated because I will be donating a portion of the biz profits to organizations for homeless animals. Lots to do so the planning guide will definitely be a huge help – thank you!

    • marie

      awesome Franci!

  57. Hi Marie! Congratulations on a year of MarieTV 🙂
    Here’s my video (made with love) for you ~

  58. Marie, I am just going through your free download with this video, and I’m blown away by you. You NEVER fail to deliver the greatest value with EVERYTHING you do. I am eternally grateful for you, b-school, and your weekly videos. I’d be lost without it. Sending you MUCHO LOVE for 2012!

  59. As always you ROCKED my world!!!!!! I’ve so enjoyed watching the greatness of your vids grow this year. I only wish I had been able to watch EVERY SINGLE ONE!

    The planning tool is just what I was looking for! I had started to do this for myself and had the skeleton of the process in my head, and voila, here you come up with the exact process with which to do it. As always: Genius 🙂

    I cannot wait to get this going! This year, I will make my YoGeek self shine and finally get my voice out. In fact, I *gulp* started the process my resurrecting my blog. SOOOOO much more to come, and this little gift from you, a giant blessing to make that happen 🙂

    Happy New Year Marie! ♥

    • Louise

      On its way to you now!

  70. Got the Planning Tool Marie. Now where are my PA’s? Oh I forgot. It’s just me.

    The good news is there won’t be any clashing of diaries for the planning meeting 🙂

    All the best Marie and thank you.


  71. Theres

    Thank you for the generosity with which you share your goodies with all of us!
    I am looking forward to a year led by desire with a big D, to inspiration be my guiding light and to the fire in my belly be the driving force to make my work more visible.

    • Louise

      Have fun and here’s to an amazing new year,

  73. I just want to congratulate Marie and her whole team for making it to the 1 year anniversary of MarieTV. That is an awesome accomplishment! I look forward to all the great advice every week (and little of the goofiness and dancing too). Keep up the great work and I look forward to all the great episodes in the coming year and hopefully working with Marie and her team soon.
    Lots of love,

  74. I am inspired to get real with our business and make some big decisions, like do we stay and grow? Or pursue other opportunities? 2012 is the year we will feel confident going one way or the other!

  75. Trinidad

    Hey Marie, you look so gorgeous! Happy 2012! Thank you for inspiring all of us. Quick question – I didn’t receive my toolkit. Would it be possible to get a copy from someone here? 🙂 Lots of love.

      Enjoy and here’s to a phenomenal 2012,

  87. Thank you for a year of amazing advice. Much congrats to everything and I look forward to more. Happy New Year Marie! Best, Ellen

  88. Marie, it seems like way more than a year that you launched MarieTV. Congratulations on an incredibly successful year and many many more! You are my mentor in all things marketing, and I heart your eccentricity, brilliance and most of all, for giving us license to be ourselves.

    Looking forward to getting the planner, haven’t seen it yet I’m sure it’s on its way. 🙂

    Aloha and Hau’oli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year)!

      Just in case the email is still in transit, I sent you the toolkit right now!

      • You’re awesome Louise. I got it, THANK YOU!

  89. Yay!! Congratulations. I love MarieTV!! You have inspired me to reach my goals and be silly in doing so!! This year I will focus on improving my public speaking in the hopes of inspiring others! Thanks a bunch.

  90. Congratulations on your + your team’s anniversary, Marie! It’s clear how hard y’all work on your vids and all the other goodies you send our way. Deepest gratitude for you, from the bottom of my heart. Namaste.

    And now I’m going to take your celebratory energy and…tell you all what I’m crazy inspired to create in 2012!
    1) Writing a book/digital program to help women entrepreneurs find, interview, and hire the right person – every time! The right web designer, VA, customer service staff – you name it, I’ll teach you how to save money + time by sharing my Interviewing Secrets.
    2) Crafting an epic speech to launch my speaking career! I’ve got a lot to say about creating wealth and value, and what the future of money holds. I’m completely redefining what the new economy can and will feel like.
    3) I’m inspired to create the deepest and truest romantic relationship I’ve ever known. A wide open heart!

    and so much more…! Happy New Year to all you beautiful and ambitiously fabulous ladies! May 2012 be OUR YEAR to SHINE!! xo

  91. Dorie

    I also did not receive the pdf but I answered the survey

    • Louise

      An email is zipping its way from me to you with all the juicy details!

  92. Trista Cottman

    Happy New Year Marie! What I am inspired to create this year is joy. I want myself and others to experience more of it! I am inspired to create and launch a business that will help accomplish just that. My business will be a blog/website that promotes well-being through health and fitness done in a fun way that is rooted and grounded on results! I feel that women who struggle with their body image and weight tend to hold back, they might struggle with pursuing their passions or dreams because of their lack of confidence – when this hindrance is removed and replaced with a joy that comes from accomplishing health and fitness goals it releases an energy that is infectious. I want more women to experience that feeling.

    I am really looking forward to receiving the planning tool. I’ve checked my email a few times and it has not arrived yet. Once I get it, I will be all over it 🙂 Strategic planning is one of my strengths so I’m always looking for new tools that can help me in the process.

    Thanks again for all you share!! I look forward to meeting you one day soon.

    • Louise

      I know it’s taking a bit of time for the emails to weave their way into your inbox…. if you haven’t received it yet- write info @ and we’ll get it to you right away!

  93. Carol F

    Happy 2012!

I am very excited to plan my new year for when I return back to the us. I am a loyal fan and will watch the updates ive missed since I have been overseas.

I’ve been blogging now for almost a year… it’ll be a year next month. I’ve learned a lot, but there’s still a ways to go. I’m also writing my first novel. So I just want to tell you thank you for being YOU! In my eyes… YOU ROCK!!! 🙂 Keep up the AWESOME WORK here.

    Wishing you all the best in 2012… Cheers! 🙂

  120. Julie

    Hi Marie!

    Happy 2nd Anniversary! I started tuning in soon after you were on Super Soul Sunday. Keep up the awesome work! MarieTV = Inspiring!
    Here is to a miraculous 2013!


  121. Dear Marie

    Happy New Year, I stumbled upon your website early this year, and watch the show nearly religiously now. It was a big part of reasons why I quit my job and followed my gut to follow my passion about enabling women to find their passions. You have no idea of how you have become such a role model.

    I absolutely loved your video, because it showed how great things evolve amazingly! I actually spoke at tedxwomen last month on that topic of how money should not stop you from doing what you want to do. My last words were start something, and i loved how you brought it up in your speech.

    Today I launched my facebook page for my first group coaching program which I brought on board 4 other coaches called I am excited, nervous and love that its just the vision. My vision is to work in 3 different continents and have the lifestyle I have always dreamed. The plan is to have bwomenretreat run in 2 different continents (Asia and Europe) and to have a version for young people in Latin America.

    As part of the launch campaign, we have this campaign called “Who do I want to Be?” and are asking people to declare who they want to be It would be AMAZING, if you could also be part of it.

    Massive Hugs, Love and Respect


  122. Rona Faison

    Thanks Marie! I don’t know you yet but love you already. The planning tools are amazing! Organized, short, sweet and to the point of it all. I have my year mapped out on just a couple of pages that I will post in my office to keep me focused all year. HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2013 is already off to a great start.

  123. Monica

    Hi Marie,
    I began to use the tools from the action plan, but I am running into some problems. A lot of my top 10 have so much to do with my everyday life that the action plan monthly calendar didn’t seem to relevant with my goals. So I am still where I am started.

  124. How is it that every time I have a question, an episode of MarieTV just pops right on up to answer it?!

    Like several above me, I also filled out the survey to get the planning tool, but it hasn’t appeared for me (despite refreshing my inbox & checking my junk mail etc). I wondered if it was because it was last year’s offer, so may not be available any more, but judging from the last couple of comments it would seem it’s still available.

    I did as requested & emailed [email protected]… so hopefully I’ll get it sent through manually soon.

    I absolutely loved the recent interview that you (Marie) did with Danielle LaPorte – you’re both such inspirational women, I left feeling all happy and inspired! I’ve since recorded it so that I can use it when I need some guidance or a pep talk.

    Thank you for sharing so much valuable and helpful information – it’s such a delight to watch your videos and read your posts!


  125. Pao

    Hey Marie! congrats on your success! I love your videos and I was very excited to try your toolkit but after the survey I did not get anything in my email address, can you fix it? I can’t wait to use it too!
    Gracias 🙂

    • Pao

      OOOPS just saw the heads up, sorry!!! 🙂

      • Chelsea - Team Forleo

        Pao, feel free to email us at infoATmarieforleoDOTcom and we can send it to you!

  126. Junnita

    Hi, I love your videos, they are always so inspirational and in your face motivational without make me feel like I’m being chastised for things I should know.

    I took the survey but did not get the toolkit. Is it still available?

    • Chelsea - Team Forleo

      Absolutely, Junnita — email us at infoATmarieforleoDOTcom, and we’ll zip it your way!

  127. Would love to know what I am doing wrong. Been consistently building my business for 3 years and it’s just not moving. What’s the fastest way to get your business known?

    • Chelsea - Team Forleo

      Bonnie, sorry to hear you’re not feeling like you’re making progress or as though you’re business is moving. If you’d like to touch base at infoATmarieforleoDOTcom, we can help and share resources we have!

  128. Thank you for creating this tool and making it available to aspiring entrepreneurs! It was very helpful and inspiring. I am excited to see what I accomplish in the upcoming months.

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much, Sarah! We’re so glad to hear that the planning tool was helpful. We’re all cheering you on 🙂

  129. Dear Marie,

    thank you for all your gifts and your love that you share with us through your videos, B-School and the CopyCure! I’m a fan.

    My question today is:

    When it comes to being professional how to find the right balance between the professional calme voice with diplomatic chosen words and the slang angry voice, attitude and words?

    I’ve worked for more than 10 years as a mediator, solving conflicts, training people to express themselves in a respectful and assertive way. BUT now that I have my own project, sometimes I really wonder if that way is suitable with everybody.

    I mean… sometimes it feels that some people only understand if you show you are angry!! For example, the photographer I work with has postponed for 3 times the deadline for finalizing a videoclip we have shoot 3 months ago. First he says he’s ill, then he got a technical problem, then bla bla bla. I have planned to have a serious conversation with him, expressing my needs, my wish to keep on working with him -cause artistically I like what he does, etc. – and also asking him more about his motivations, to find how/if our needs can match.
    Ok that’s the professional in me, but the human is somewhere screaming at me that I should not go to that working session with a calme voice, but on the contrary let anger and disappointment show, I’m not saying screaming at him as a mad person, but just let some emotion run through my words.
    I would like to know your advice?
    When it comes to being professional how to find the right balance between the professional calme voice and chosen words and the slang angry words?
    Thank you so much Marie! !
    All the best Marian

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Hi Marian, thank you so much for checking out this episode and sharing your question. I thought I might share one of my favorite MarieTV episode that talks about this kind of situation exactly and shares some amazing tips about how to be direct with a business partner or friend:

      As you’ve shared, you don’t have to raise your voice or be unkind, but honoring your emotions and expressing yourself honestly is important. For more on that, here’s another wonderful episode with some similar tips:

      Also, if you’d like to submit this as a possible MarieTV episode, you can find the link to submit that here: This is the best way to get Marie’s feedback on a particular topic, and this way we’ll have it in the mix when we’re developing future episodes.

      I hope that helps and you’re able to resolve things with your photographer!

  130. Congrats. Marie! Thank you for this gift and I wish you the best!

  131. Hi Marie,
    I just dug this up from the archives because I was working on upping my productivity levels and wanted to say thank you once again for these 3 worksheets. They help make things so crystal clear!

  132. Oh noes! I know this is an “old” post, and I just stumbled upon it. I wanted to put myself to work with your toolkit + instructions. I downloaded the toolkit but I can’t go back to the page with the instructions. It seems to be down…

    • Chelsea - Team Forleo

      Hi Eline! The toolkit PDFs and full instructions are in the actual blog post above – we moved it off of the old instructions page a while back so that they live right in this blog post. If you scroll up to the top of the page here, you’ll find the whole shebang. We’re so happy you’re using the toolkit!

  133. Create a clear plan every month. I found this idea very good, worth it for me to do. It will tell us how to do it early. Good results will come quickly

  134. Laura

    Love these ideas and generosity to share the toolkit! This is amazing! Thanks so much Marie!

  135. Laura

    Hi I took survey but never received the toolkit would you mind sending it please?

    • Sarah - Team Forleo

      Hi Laura, thank you so much for taking the survey!

      We actually moved the toolkit PDF so that it lives right in the blog post above – If you scroll up to the top of the page here, you’ll see it in a numbered list. We hope it’s so helpful, we’re excited for you to use it!

  136. Trish Bourke

    Hi didn’t get the kit after filling out survey can you send it pls.

    • Jennifer - Team Forleo

      Thanks for taking the survey! The toolkit lives right in the blog post above now. If you scroll up to the top of the page here, you’ll see it in a numbered list. Hope you love it!
