I’m writing you from sunny Palm Springs, California (yay for warm weather!) and I’m really excited for today’s episode.

Helping celebrate Marie's B-day by finding viewers around the world #LoveTrain Click To Tweet

You see, you’re helping me kick off my birthday celebration — which typically lasts anywhere from a week to the entire month of December.

Now, I’m not the kind of gal who likes gifts, but this year I do have a birthday wish.

Don’t worry because it doesn’t cost any money, but I will need your help to make it come true!

If you’re willing, it involves me and you getting on a love train. Click play and make sure you watch all the way till the end.

Once again, the countries we’re looking for new viewers in are: Burundi, Chad, Cuba, the Marshall Islands, and Tonga.

  1. Happy Birthday Marie!

    I hope your birthday wish comes true, I have a feeling it will. I for one am very grateful you were born, can’t wait to see what this year brings for you.


    • I too am so grateful! Happy birthday, Marie!

    • Danny

      Hi Marie, just started receiving your weekly emails…muchos gracias!!

      I have one question and I’m sure many would love to find out. Im a professional golfer and would love to share my learnings about peak performance. At some point I would like to develop this further and make an income from my passion. How do you make an income from sharing your passion for free.

      Another way of putting this is…I’ve signed up where are you going to take me? :)))))

  2. I am IN!

    I’m gonna work on Tonga (it’s not that far from me!) New Zealand has a LARGE polynesian culture and I also know a few pacific islanders!

    PLUS I’m hitting up Fiji for New Years which is like a hop-step-and-jump from Tonga and a lot of Tongan’s live there. I’m gonna be like walking round the resort preaching Marie’s name!


    Elise xo

    • Omg, btw – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!xx

    • Hi Elise,

      I am a bit jealous! I wish I was hanging around Fiji for New Years! Have a great time and good luck spreading the love.


    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for the Tonga recon, that is AMAZING! And Fiji for New Years sounds incredible.
      All the best,

    • Rosa Troia

      Hi Marie,

      Happy Birthday and many more!

      Love you! Rosa

    • Awesome, Elise!

      Happy Birthday, Marie!! We are all grateful to have you!

  3. Hey Marie,
    Happy birthday! I used to live and teach in the Marshall Islands so I can definitely help you out there! On it.

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Love that you taught and lived in the Marshall Island and thank you for the MarieTV alley-oop.
      Take care,

  4. Happy Happy Birthday to you!!!

    I’ll keep my eyes peeled. You’ll be Ms. Worldwide soon (heck, you’re basically there).

    Thanks for the inspiration. You motivate me daily.

  5. Alla Petcheniouk

    Hey Marie!
    Love your goal! I was thinking that if you want to translate your videos, I used to do dubbing and I am native Russian and German speaker 🙂 means probably more friends in these countries 🙂
    I’d love to help you to spread your message, gorgeous lady!
    All my love and respect to you,

    • Alla Petcheniouk

      Oh, and in Russian tradition it is bad to congratulate the people before their bday. So I’ll do it Dec 7 🙂

  6. Happy, Happy birthday Marie! Can’t believe it’s already a year on from your “Hey Shorty” birthday video!

  7. Phew! You are SO ambitious and motivating. I will be tweeting my peeps in Africa (Ethopia, Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, and South Africa) as well as my friends who are FROM Chad, but not currently living IN Chad. We’ll get you on the map, girl 😉

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Thank you for tweeting out and helping us bring anyone from Chad into the MarieTV family! We so appreciate you sharing the love.
      Wishing you all the best,

    • Great work, Udo! Lots of love to you and all your African friends 😉

  8. Happy, happy birthday Marie!!!:)
    Getting into the Love Train – will do my best to spread the word:)))

  9. Happy Birthday…yeah!
    I don’t know anyone who lives in any of those countries – but I used to have a lot of pen pals in Cuba when I was 11. I’ve lost touch, though.

  10. Hey Marie

    I don’t know anyone in these countries but I’ll put my thinking cap on and tap my network to see if I can reach out to anyone. What a great goal and how amazing will you feel when its reached!

    Happy birthday for the 7th!! 🙂

  11. Marie,

    What a blessing you are in the world! Wishing you a beautiful year filled with joy and laughter.

    I am holding the intention with you of expanding into uncharted territories!

    All the best to you,


  12. Marie

    Two months ago I returned from my new favorite country in the world – Cuba. I loved the culture, the scenery, the mojitos. And the people were so friendly. The Cubans would love your style and sass. That is for sure.

    But from what I learnt Cubans aren’t able to use the Internet. You should have seen the paperwork I had to fill in to use dial up. And my guide told me that he would get fined, maybe sent to jail if he was seen on the Internet.

    I do wish one day that Cubans are able to freely use the Internet and learn from you. But what I wish more is that you and all Americans get to visit such a beautiful place.

    Happy Birthday


    • Hey there Ainslie,

      I wonder why they have the Interwebs so locked down? To be honest, I think a break from having access to everything could be a nice break! Maybe a vaca to Cuba would help with that. 🙂

      Thanks for sharing your info – I learned something new today about Cuba.


      • vanessa aranegui

        My family is Cuban… a few things. The government wants to keep the people on lock down so they can control the flow of info and what the people know… afterall, knowledge is power and in Cuba the people have none and Castro wants to keep it that way. Also, the whole follow your own path doesn’t really fly there… you kinda do what the government needs/wants you to do. There’s not really much life choice. Plus most people don’t have a computer in their home, unless your in the university possibly. But really the main source of internet would be at the school which is run by? that’s right… government
        To watch Marietv may very well be illegal :/
        don’t take my word for it, just what I understand from the stories I hear from family and visitors.

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      We have read some of the same information but we’re still holding out hope. I completely agree that Cubans would love MarieTV. It sounds like a beautiful country- I think our next wish might be our show on a world tour, that would be amazing!

  13. I’m in Auckland and sure we can cover Tonga! Will investigate.

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Thank you Kris! We sincerely appreciate you helping spread the MarieTV love.
      Take care,

  14. Ewa

    Happy Birthday Marie!

  15. Hi Marie,

    Happy B-day!!!! How amazing it is that you are being watched in almost every country. Love to contribute to your mission, so I’ve send out some tweets. You never know how a cow catches a rabbit (as we say in Holland)

    Keep on shining!

    Love, Stephanie

  16. You are amazing Marie, you are my inspiration. HAAAAAPY BIRTHDAY, I am sure your dream come true!!!!!!!

  17. Interesting choices. Africa is one of the largest users of mobile devices, in fact several people have two. These are not usually smartphones though and after biking across Africa this year I can assure you the internet sucks so watching videos is pretty painful.

    These are going to be challenging for sure, but I’m sure your birthday wish will come true Miss Saggi – love that star sign, almost as cool as an Aries 🙂

    I’d really like to know why you’re targeting these specific countries?

    PS I’m from New Zealand but live in my global suitcase


    • Louise - Team Forleo

      These are actually the countries we have left to reach all 193 (as specified by the UN listing)! I love all of your travel- you are definitely a global entrepreneur, it’s very inspiring.
      All the best,

    • Hey Natalie, you are right that most Africans get on the internet with their cellphones, but there are plenty of people who have internet access on their computers or they have a smartphone (like Blackberry… people don’t really do iphone or android there). I don’t know exactly how it is in Chad, but I’m rather surprised Marie hasn’t gotten there yet if she’s gotten the other nations.

  18. Happy Birthday Marie, I’m sure you’ll get your wish!!! 🙂

  19. Can’t help you! I’m too busy celebrating my own 71st birthday on the 15. Happy Birthday, fellow Sag!

    • wow Gina, Im so inspired, love seeing people like you showing the world, there is no age limit for technology.. hope your wishes come true

  20. Oana

    Hi Marie, it’s amazing my birthday is also December 7th, love you!
    P.S. I plan to celebrate my birthday using your model for at least a week and I will do that by finding the nicest images and posting them on my FB page for friends to enjoy.
    Good luck to you and you have my support for Romania!

    • Happy Bday Oana, hope you have a rocking bday too 🙂

  21. Happy Bday Marie

    I have some friends in Africa, I have forwarded this email to them. Hopefully we will get your wish come true.

    Best Regards

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for helping out! We cannot wait to share MarieTV with your friends.
      Wishing you well,

  22. Happy Bday from The UK x x x
    Love your vision…

  23. Marie, I do have friends in Cuba, but the internet there is a joke. (Think dial up, if you are lucky) They could never watch your video. They could maybe read your blog, but even that is a challenge. But I’ll work on one friend there whose mother works for the foreign press. He might be the only Cuban with faster internet. And BTW, if you ever want to visit, I can help you plan the tour of a lifetime….the real insiders tour of Cuba.

    Happy birthday!

    • Also, running your own biz in Cuba is illegal if you don’t have government approval.

      • A very small percentage of Cubans have computers at home…maybe 1%. 90% of Cubans work for the government, where thy have computer access to an Intra-net (closed Cuban network), not the Internet. There are dozens of “legal” new businesses in Cuba, but the list is specific and strange (like clowns who entertain at parties are allowed to have a private business). The government is “encouraging” entrepreneurs….but only the ones they approve.

        That said, I am reaching out to one person I know who I think could actually watch Marie TV.

        • I just found a photographer friend who is in Cuba now, and online now. I asked him as well. He’s American, living in Paris, but he has been photographing Cuba for many years. You might get your wish today!

          • Louise - Team Forleo

            Thank you for the insight and the creative help getting MarieTV into Cuba! We have definitely been reading about the internet there and it’s truly incredible how the structure is set up.
            You are a rock star,

        • Hi Tanya,

          That is super interesting info that you posted. I never knew that the government had to approve new businesses. Sounds like quite a challenge to get something up and running. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.


  24. Love your extended birthday celebrations. My family live all over (3 sisters in the U.S., both coasts, one in Paraguay, and me in Switzerland. Our rule is simple – we only celebrate our birthdays within 6 months of the actual date! Love ya Marie!

  25. Happy Birthday Marie!!!
    I have ZERO connections in these FIVE countries but wanted to celebrate the 188 that you are in!!!! That is AMAZING and I know you will be WORLD-WIDE in no time. May your birthday wish come true in perfect and divine timing with the help of the people you inspire and whom love and admire. May this year be THE BEST YET.
    with love and gratitude-

  26. Gurrrrl I will find away to get your content to Cuba. I live in Miami and have over 80 personal connections to that island. If its infused by way of Internet or by way of boat I will share your tv show with everyone I know that has the cubanos link up. With the help of the other gals who responded high five for Cuba! I will talk around I may have a link with the Marshall Islands and I have one direct contact in tonga so I will be emailing a few. With love! You share your birthday with two of my favorites my sister and my web designer Love you have a wonderful month!


    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for sharing MarieTV with all of your international connections (it’s so amazing that you have people in three of our sought-after countries!). I also love that you have two other December 7th birthdays in your life- wish them all the best from our entire team!
      Take care,

    Have a great week! – Danielle

  35. Happy Birthday Saggi sister! May your birthday wishes all come true and may Marie TV go truly global (although I have to say, 188 countries – Wow). Thanks for being such an inspiration!

  36. Hey Miss Universe, Happy Birthday! So happy to be on the love train with you, can’t wait till B-School kicks in cause I seriously need to BE schooled and I know you are the mentor to help me do it. Side note: my first husband left me for Miss Universe… no joke… but sort funny now. I ended up getting married to Mr. Cosmo … also no joke… God has a great sense of humor… and fairness! So I use “Miss Universe” in the most positive definition of the title. If anyone should take over the world, I vote you.

  37. Sending magical wishes for a very Happy Birthday Marie,
    May all your wishes come true.
    Love & Best Wishes

  71. Hi Marie, so glad to be watching this today as it is my birthday and a happy birthday to you on December 7 which is 1 day after my mom’s birthday who is with me in spirit.

    I know someone by the name of Jean-Jacques Mitakaro 780-756-4270 who is a Canadian and was raised in Burundi. He has started an organization to contribute to the development of education and improvements to the living conditions of children and families in need. which means ‘to help one another’.

    My vision in my business is to help others also become self sufficient by becoming their own entrepreneurs by redesigning jewellery. I find myself always being inspired by others to create something different.

    Love the love train!

      Happy Birthday from all of us at Team Forleo. May your every wish come true! Thank you for sharing the information about Jean-Jacques and his incredible organization. We’d love if it you feel comfortable sharing MarieTV with him. And best of luck with your business as well.
      Take care,

  72. Oh happy birthday Marie (our dearest business/marketing mentor)!! so happy to see you are you in warm California celebrating your birthday week!

    I went to Cuba last year, did make a couple of local friends but they don’t have internet or TV…but I remember that hotels/resturant do have internet access. I’ll dig out the contacts from some hotels and send on one eposide or two, you never know!
    I agree that Cuban will enjoy MarieTV so much…
    All my love Marie, have a beautiful year ahead!

    • Kristin

      Thank you SO much for sending along some episodes of MarieTV to your contacts at Cuban hotels, Yiye! I hope they love MarieTV as much as we all do.

      With gratitude,
      Kristin (Team Forleo)

  73. Happy Birthday Marie! You are in Palm Springs and I am about 50 minutes from you…Have a blast!


  74. Happy Birthday Marie, what a gift u are to this world totally knocked the bad mood right outta me, Im laughing now.
    I dont know anyone in the aforementioned countries.

  75. Tina

    My first ever “weekly video” from you, and I’m quite disappointed. It’s all about you! I didn’t learn a thing. Seriously?

  76. Happy Birthday my NYC sista’ 🙂

    I’ve been to Cuba – does that count? LOL

    In any regard, have a great day, week and month!

  77. HI Marie!

    I just sent a message to Jauretsi a NY Cuban I know who has done a bunch of documentaries down there! Fingers crossed she will pass it on..FYI I know there were 193 countries when you filmed this…bit now there are 194!! YOu need to get in to Palestine Guurl!

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for spreading the word! We’re using the list of UN Member states to get our working number of 193 but it’s very exciting that the world is always growing and there are so many new country delineations (we’ll take love from ALL countries!).
      Wishing you all the best,

  78. I just passed this along to a contact in Burundi – good luck and happy birthday!

    • Louise - Team Forleo

    Hi Marie!

    I read what Alla Petcheniouk wrote you about translating and dubbing your videos. Well I would love to do the same in Spanish. I was born in Mexico City and I am sure that all the Latin and Hispanic American women who don’t understand English would love to receive your messages and amazing contributions.

    I’d love to be a part of your international team too!

    Warm regards,

    MariMar Covarrubias

    • Happy Birthday Marie,

      Good luck on making your Birthday Wish come true.
      If it already hasn’t happened, I’m sure it’s on it’s Way!
      You’re a pro at Creation!

      Love watching you, always.
      Thank you.
      Love Lana

    Hi Mary !! Happy Birthday and Happy New Year!!!

    I might be able to do my part in Cuba, my husband is Cuban an he has a lot of family and friends still in the island! I think Mary TV will help them greatly but specially if they leave Cuba. Everything is so controlled and so different from what we know that when you start hearing their stories they almost sound like a joke. They have a huge creative drive, but most of the things they have to come up are “illegal”, basically (if you didn’t got it through a prize from the communist party) is illegal to have more than your neighbor.

    There is a blogger from Cuba that has been arrested several times for blogging about their problems, her name is Yoani Sanchez her blog is or her tweeter for those who are interested.

    I don’t know how she does it, there are a few that with a lot of creativity (and probably bribes) have being able to have internet and cable TV, the rest of the population rents DVDs and CDs that the people with cable or internet copy so they can profit from it. I KNOW, I KNOW the copyrights!!! but believe me, not much of our laws apply to the island. So for those of you who pray, try to include freedom for cuba in your prayers!!!

    Merry Christmas, Hanukkah or December to everyone !!!!

  88. OK, Marie here is my video to assist you to get in Cuba & Puerto Rico
    I am CubanRican so I can not leave Puerto Rico out.
    hope you like it!

    I’m not sure if my post didn’t went through or it wasn’t approved, too bad, I think I’m not posting anything anymore, got scared,

    Either way, happy birthday Marie! And Happy December for everyone else.

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      I figured it out! You had two links in your post so it was caught in our “pending” folder. I just freed it- THANK YOU for sharing the information about Cuba, it’s definitely incredible to learn about that country’s internet regulations.
      Take care,

      • Catalina Sepulveda

        Thank U Louise!!

        As efficient as always! Have a great day!

  91. Janene

    Happy Birthday Month, Marie! And thanks ever so much for making me sing “Love Train” all day today!!!

  92. Karina Lopez

    Happy Birthday! Your love train brightened my day. I second (third?) interpreters/translators from earlier; I’d love to help translate and/or interpret your content into Spanish. I’m Dominican, living in the U.S., and I’ve translated everything from grant proposals to film scripts, apart from interpreting in schools and hospitals, before my current incarnation as a Spanish teacher.

    My dear friends recently finished filming in Cuba and I will definitely ask them about contacts on the island. Thanks so much for all that you do. Feliz Cumple!

  93. Just watched from sunny Majuro, Marshall Islands, thanks to a referral from someone on Couchsurfing. Happy birthday!

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      You have just made our day! Thank you so much for checking out the video- we hope you stick around.
      All the best,

  104. happiest of birthday!!! you know how to throw a partay!


  105. Hi Marie, Happy Birthday from a fellow sagittarius. My birthday is today! So happy to share December with you 🙂

  106. Jeanette

    Hi, Marie! As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who worked in West Africa, the quickest way to reach folks in most of those countries is through the embassies and Peace Corps offices in each country. And those folks speak English. Chad is a particularly tough one, though, it’s considered to be one of the hardest places in the world to be a Peace Corps Volunteer (I was in Ivory Coast), so it may end up being the last frontier for you to conquer!

    • Light Teach


  107. Hi Marie,
    I never comment but I felt compelled today because there’s an amazing family doing wonderful things in Burundi, Africa that you should definitely know about. Kristy Carlson and her family moved there and started “Long Miles Coffee Project”. I don’t know them personally but I follow them through pictures on Instagram. Why don’t you check them out at and ask them to watch your videos? They could definitely use some positive motivation to continue the work that they’re doing.

    Best of luck with your birthday wish! Shonda

    • Kristin – Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for sharing this amazing couple and their site with us, Shonda. We will definitely check out what they’re up to!

      Kristin (Team Forleo)

  108. Marie – Shout out to a fellow December birthday gal – although I’m a Capricorn (12/26)! I don’t know anyone in any of those countries but I am sending a special “desire balloon” out into the universe for you! Rock the world! Thank you for everything you do – and for getting the Love Train stuck in my head all day!

  109. Hey Marie- I just moved to Ecuador so you have another viewer in South America. I’m so happy to see you keep on growing and stepping into your brilliance!
