You know, everybody needs a little help sometimes.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. - Winston Churchill Click To Tweet

Mentors, smart friends and yes, even people we all look up to.

That’s why on this Christmas Eve, I’m honored to help one of the biggest global icons of all time.

(Side note:  yet another cool blessing of the Internet — you just never know who is a fan of your work!)

No matter what you celebrate, I think you’ll relate to the struggles this fan brings to MarieTV and to our solutions.

Now, Santa and I would love to hear from you.

What’s your biggest wish this holiday season?

Leave a comment below and let us know.

And as we enjoy this incredible time of year…

On behalf of myself and our entire team, we wish you, your family and loved ones a safe, happy and blessed holiday.

An Update –> here’s the episode I recommended to Santa, it’s a great one!

With all my jingly love,

  1. This is so sweet and hilarious :))) Merry Christmas, guys!!!!:)

    • I agree with Galina.Cute. Although, I had no idea Santa is a gluten intolerant lech… 🙂

      My Christmas wish is to be even more fully accepting of my own greatness. To willingly step into the space reserved just for me and gracefully accept the changes that come with it.

      And as always, love and laughter to lead the way for all. Enjoy the holidays!

      • Wonderful Christmas wish Emelia! accepting the changes that may come is definitely something I need to work on as well. Happy holidays!

        • Thanks, Sofia. Same to you! 🙂

      • Emelia,

        I first read your message 2 days ago when sharing my wish…but I have come back several times just to re-read the words ” To willingly step into the space reserved just for me” that statement is speaking to my soul.

        Thank you and Merry Christmas

        • Thanks, Tiffani. Glad it resonated. Hope you had a Merry Christmas. 🙂

    • Oh my, so cute! My kids watch MarieTV with me a lot and they LOVED this one! It was a great way to kick off the day. I agree Galina! Merry Christmas everybody!

      • Love hearing that you watch w/your kids Theresa! Merry Christmas to you 🙂 xoxo

        • Bernadette

          I am so grateful for those wonderful and inspiring words which you have shared. I love reading it over and over again,, and love listening to the audio which I had just downloaded .I learned alot.
          Thank you and more power.
          Happy holiday to all Marie Forleo team

      I was unable to see the video clip on your site. (I think it may be an issue with Mavericks- the new IOS from Apple- seems like there has been issues I didn’t have with Mountain Lion). I did a search on YouTube, but, for some reason turned-up ‘Christmas Hotties’. Gotta love Google.
      After persistence, I was able to find your video.
      My Christmas wish, is Peace of Mind, which will be enabled through a debt-free and abundant life.

    Cute! Happy Holidays Marie!
    My Wish is to be able to interview you, Marie Forleo.
    I know I sent my story earlier, but it is amazing how things change so fast.

  3. Santa’s lost his passion! That made me crack up. So funny.

    My biggest Christmas wish this year would be that the next few days with family are full of love, laughs and connection. Professionally, my wish would be that I own my dreams and step towards them in 2014 with 100% commitment.

    Thank you Marie and team for all that you give.
    Merry Christmas,
    Love Elloa x

    • Those wishes are TOTALLY doable and fully in your control Elloa. You got this! xoxo

    • Dejana

      Hi Elloa,
      Thank you for articulating so well my wish for 2014! That’s exactly where I’m going too, owning and stepping up into being me!:)

      Great episode Marie, thanks for the laugh, as always! you’re a jewel! Wish you all a merry Christmas!

      • Hi Dejana, let’s hold hands and jump in there together 🙂
        Happy new year.

        Marie, thank you for acknowledging that. It has landed. Yes. Happy new year to you and your lovely team and family. xx

  4. Also, my biggest wish this holiday season is for my mom to do well during and after her surgery.

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      We’re sending her all our best thoughts!

      • Thank you so much, Louise! Appreciate it, guys!

    • Hi Galina! Sending you, your mom and the doctors that will support her our prayers. xoxoox

      • Thank you, Marie! It means a lot!!

  5. Santa,

    This year for Christmas, I’d like about 20 bright, shiny, ambitious new clients to work with through 2014.

    Gluten-free cookies will be waiting for you upon your arrival!



  6. A Kenny G cd…
    That guy can really jam!

    Seriously, this year, more than anything I want even more clarity on the vision for my life. I’ve gotten QUANTUM levels of clarity this year and things are coming together in the most graceful and amazing way.

    I know that with clarity comes power, and my mission here is big so I want to be as specific as possible in the vision for my family, business, and service.

    Take care Team Marie, and have a happy holiday!

    • Yes. Clarity. More clarity. Right there with you, Shawn.

    • Hey Shawn! Remember that clarity comes from engagement, not thought. So keep those feet moving and you’ll feel/sense/discover the **perfect path** and next steps. Happy Holidays! xo

      • April

        I love this piece of advice. Thank you Marie.

  7. Well done Marie! Bravo! Great interview 😉

    My wish for the holidays is to unwind 2013 since it has been a huge year for me, and to just celebrate the year in general. I’m learning to celebrate more, and enjoy the journey instead of just jumping from conquering one big goal to the next. A girl’s gotta stop and pop some bubbly once in awhile!

    Sending you love and hugs. Merry Christmas!

    • Oh and if we’re talking about material things, my condo flooded right before the holidays and there is tons of water damage so Santa, I have a long list of renovations to do… I would love if you could install a new kitchen for me to use over the holidays, and put some pot lights in my ceiling so that it’s nice and bright when you come here to deliver presents 😉

      • Sorry to hear that, Natalie. Hopefully, Santa will hook you up with something even better than before.

      • Sorry to hear about your flood Natalie, but I trust what you’ll create will be even better than before! xo

  8. I am launching an Online English Academy Program. I am hoping to reach out the right people who need to improve their English and have a different life in 2014. 🙂

  9. Love it! I just have to add a jolly thank you Marie & Co. for an amazing year full of inspired videos! I can’t wait for 2014!

    • You are so welcome 🙂 We’re excited for 2014 too!

  10. Okay, that was a little weird… I can’t shake that image of Santa wanting THAT kind of kiss from Marie!

    • Oh…I was so thrown off track I forgot to say what I’m hoping for in 2014. In a nutshell, I want to help people and make a living doing it. The first part isn’t so hard, it’s the second part that stumps me!

      Happy Holidays, Marie, you are awesome and so inspiring 🙂

  11. Hahaha!

    This just threw me off completely! And with that, I just wanna say thanks Marie and your team for the terrific content. My tuning in to every episode since signing up is one of my highlights for 2013.

    • That is so awesome to hear Stef. I really appreciate you watching and so glad to be a part of your 2013 highlight reel 🙂

  12. Merry Christmas Marie TV!!!

    I wish my UK kids and grandkids were here for Christmas.

    Besides that…Christmas here is pretty blessed.

  13. Liz

    Loving this and all you do! Thank you thank you thank you!!


    Ho, Ho, Ho!

    I want to enjoy time with my friends and family, while being able to take off work whenever I want!

    Thanks Marie for starting that ball rolling!

  15. Jaya

    The Uni-verse has conspired to push me to make a change this New Year in terms of my career as I lost my job and I love the inspiration provided here.

  16. Katy

    I want to stop dragging my feet and finally get a new job where I have more fun, more money and am treated better!

  17. Super cute Marie!

    I’m crushin’ on that Santa too btw (who is he?)

    Happy holidays to you and your team!

    • Julie

      I agree with you Susan.

      Merry Christmas to everyone.

  18. Where is the link to the video you mentioned?

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      We have that video linked within today’s video but I’ll add the link into the post right now!

      This is the episode Marie recommends that Santa check out when he’s feeling unmotivated –>

      Have a very happy holidays,

  19. Hysterical video, Marie & Crew! “Give it to them twice as hard” would have been awful to say, but so glad you saved as part of the gag reel. That had my daughter and I on the floor laughing.

    I really want my harmony in my family for Christmas. Of course I wouldn’t mind more subscribers, too!

    I have a Kenny G cd waiting for you, Santa!

    Happy Holidays!

  20. Thanks Marie for the entertaining video!

    My wish for this holiday season is for everyone to find the joy within no matter what the circumstance.

    Happy Holidays!!!! 🙂 🙂

  21. You’re always so inspirational! I’m a recent B-schooler and I would love to make 2014 the year I have a real breakthrough in my new customer reach!
    Happy Holidays to all.

  22. Karlene

    Dear Santa,
    It was nice seeing you on MarieTV today. My niece is also gluten intolerant, so maybe we can make some gluten free cookies together and leave them for you. I’m sure she’d love that!

    Thanks to some great interviews on MarieTV this year, I have gained so much clarity that I’m excited to carry into my business in 2014. So my wish list is super simple. I’d love to continue this momentum in B-school. Think you can make that happen Santa? I’ve been pretty nice this year…did I mention that my gluten-free cookies are delicious? 😉


    P.S. Happy Holidays to Marie and her fabulous team! Thanks for great year of great content. Some of the best stuff on the interwebs!

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Karlene – we would LOVE to have you in B-School. I’m asking Santa to help make that possible for anyone too (and we have a wonderful scholarship contest so be sure to check that out during our launch in February).

      Take care,

      • Karlene

        Thanks Louise. I’ll be on the lookout for the scholarship info 🙂 I’m feeling optimistic!

        Merry Christmas!

      • Oh I’m so glad it’s not too late to enter the scholarship contest! So info about how to enter will not come out till February then?

        • Louise - Team Forleo

          The contest will be announced during the B-School 2014 beginning February 6th – details are shared in one of the training videos so make sure you’re on the list at to get the inside scoop!

          Take care and happy holidays,

          • Thank you Louise! I’m pretty sure I’m signed up, but I’ll make sure right now!

    • Karlene, definitely try to get into BSchool! I’m a BSchool veteran and it truly is the gift that keeps on giving!!

      It’s an AMAZING learning experience and the love and support from the private FB group alone is priceless.

      • Karlene

        Thanks for the feedback Susan. I’ve only heard good things about B-school. I’m going to see what I can do to make this happen 🙂

  23. HILARIOUS!!! I love how Santa kept it real, especially that kiss he was trying to get!

    My holiday wish, for my business that Marie would wear a necklace from my store on her segment and that she opens back up the B-School for early entry — but with the early entry prices. A girl can only wish.

    Happy Holidays everyone!

  24. estelle

    I wish all Marie’s fans would register for a month swab (5 minutes) in order to potentially become life saver.

    Estelle, London, UK

    • I just gave my swab a few weeks ago!

  25. Merry Christmas, Marie & Co!

    Wishing you all a happy, safe and healthy year. And yes, I’d like the same for myself. 🙂 Let’s spread that good mojo!


  26. LOVE this episode! 😀

    I wish is to get into B-School, been praying for this for the last two years! I am currently doing my postgrad studies far away from my home country and struggling to make a living and gave up on my “B-School Savings” so I could continue my studies. But on a lighter note I have started my podcast show and trying my best to follow all of your tips, Marie 🙂 Maybe one day I’ll be able to afford and attend B-School 🙂
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 🙂

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      We would love to have you join us in B-School. There’s also a scholarship contest during the launch as Marie loves to offer free spots in ‘School to people who might not otherwise be able to take the leap! More details to come in February.

      Take care and happy holidays,

      • Oh! Thanks for your reply Louise 🙂
        I will surely keep an eye on the scholarship details! B-School HERE I COME! 🙂
        Happy holidays to you and the whole team 🙂

  27. I loved that EVEN Santa feels the burnout too!! That really hit home as the end of the year reflection kicks in(and maybe a little pms pity party). I am grateful for so many blessings in my life and the changes I made as a solo service provider but am truly ready to calaborate with others and let go of the do it all myself biz model I am in. I have a neck ache from all the hats I am wearing as a one girl show. My wish this year is to openly receive the skills and connection of others and together share our info with the masses, creating lots of healing, clarity and movement in lives all over the world!

    Thank you to all at MarieTV and those that watch for creating the ripple of shared love, joy and honest frustration. It has really reminded me that I am not alone in this journey of service and connection!

    Much love and happy holidays to all!

  28. Oh, Marie….how you make me love Tuesdays!

    Oh, Santa…you GF scamp…you’re freakin’ me out a little. Okay, a lot. Get your buns to B-School and SORT OUT THAT MAILING LIST, man, once and for all.

    My biggest wish this holiday season? It’s already been granted. Time! Time to take a Christmas hike with my honey, then spend the last few days of the year getting crystal clear about the Infinite Possibilities I plan to manifest in 2014.

    Happy Holidays, everyone!

  29. Lisette

    This year I’d love for the people I care about to remain in good health and happiness, and continue that in 2014. On my own personal development I’d love 2014 to be a life-altering year, being able to serve more and trusting my own power more to be of service to others 🙂

  30. Yay! Santa!

    I’m not going to get mushy about it. What I really want for Christmas is Amazon Prime, a new apartment, and a Virtual Assistant 😛

    Happy holidays!!!

  31. Very cute and very refreshing:)
    Love the gluten free advice on the cookies- awesome!

  32. thanks Marie and team, haven’t missed 1 single episode ! Love the work and everything you give to your community. You inspire me to keep going & giving to my own audience !

    My Xmas wish? A free ticket to B-School 😉

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      I love that you’ve seen every MarieTV, it’s been a fun journey (stay tuned to next week for an awesome celebration). We do have a scholarship contest for B-School during our February launch so that wish could come true!!

      Wishing you a happy holidays,

  33. Dear Santa,
    My Christmas list this year is love and abundance for all, could you deliver that from me to everyone on your list and I will do the same from here.
    Love Diane xxoo

  34. Merry Christmas!
    I have signed up for the B-School 🙂
    Can’t wait and my only wish is to finally bring that spacial gift only I have to the world!
    Happy Holidays and let us all live with passion! xo

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Yay! We will do all we can to help make that wish come true through B-School.

      Wishing you a very happy holidays,

  35. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Santa is so cool! 🙂 Your videos inspire me and I always look forward to watching- thanks for a great year.

    My holiday wish is that Marie would take a quick peek at my website and tell me what could be improved to sell more products 🙂

  36. Angela

    Oh, this was a great video! So cute, fun and so informative. Love how you did that!

    Merriest Christmas to all of you!

    Angela xoxo

  37. You guys were having way too much fun making that video!!

    My wish is to get stronger physically (just hired a trainer) and to be able to grow my yoga-inspired jewelry biz ONLINE. I love going to yoga studios and craft shows but it is a grueling process ( & I’m no spring chicken anymore.) So, I need to encourage all yoginis to check out the “Hip & Holy Bling” on my website. I’m also grateful to have had my best holiday sales ever this year.

    My wish this year for you and for everyone out there…Shanti, Shanti, Shanti…Peace, Peace, Peace. Namaste.

  38. Hilarious, Marie! Well done team Foleo!
    Santa: I would REALLY love for my student loan to be paid off. 🙂
    As a Naturopath, I am aware of the increasing need for gluten-free options. 😉 Just happened to have made gluten free cookies last night! And I even have some gluten digestion supplements here. Feel free to take the bottle if you end up at a house where the gluten-filled cookies are irresistible. My son and I will leave both gluten -free cookies and supplements out for you with your name on them tonight.
    Merry Christmas everyone! Xo

  39. Maja

    I would love to return to NYC soon 🙂

  40. Did Marie just say “Get your jolly ass in b-school”?!?!


  41. Hello Marie, Santa and Team!

    Thank you for all the valuable information you provide here and in B-School. I look forward to your videos every week.

    Thank you for the opportunity to ask Santa for something special. What I would like the most this Holiday season would be to ask Santa for 2 B-School Memberships to give away on my new (not published) business website Woo Hoo!!! I just received word this morning after a very lengthy wait that the conflict of interest with my current job (federal government) is resolved and I can start my business. What great news to start the holidays with. I am ready to get started helping others!

    Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all of you! May all your hopes and dreams come true today and in the coming year.

  42. Laura

    Marie you always have the best guests on your show! How do you top Santa Claus?

    As for my wish list…

    I would love to see Marie at a live event someday! Now that I’m close to NYC I can see it happening- maybe in 2014? I’ve been waiting for the next RHH Live! Also I’d love an I Love Marketing mug- it’s already on my amazon wish list 🙂


    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Laura – ah, very interesting. We’re taking notes on your wish list items too…

      Wishing you a happy holidays,

  43. WOAH YOU GUYS. Why wasn’t this on the front page of the Huff Post today? I guess Santa doesn’t want everyone to know his *exact* movements around this time… well done on such a coup.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you at Marie TV and THANK YOU for so much awesome advice (and snorts of laughter!).

    For Christmas, I wish to feel deeply contented in my bones, and lots of love towards everyone. I’m on track.


  44. Jennifer

    Dear Santa,

    I have so much already, such a loving, supportive family, a roof over my head and food on our table. I wish for others to be so lucky!

    Oh, but I would love to be able to go to B School this year! I submitted an entry to win a spot last year, maybe you could help me with a video this year :o)

  45. Cute Marie… Loved it. Lol. Well done. Xo. Merry Xmas my friend.

  46. My wish is to interview 2 people, firstly Oprah, she’s one of the most amazing, most forward thinking women on the planet.

    She’s the living epitome of what happens when you trust and follow your soul, while displaying humility and keeping it real.

    Looking forward to riffing with ya Oprah x

    The second person has gotta be for me to interview you Marie, you embody a young, strong and sassy spiritual woman, and I love your work and how it’s evolved (and evolving)

    Marie Christmas (see what i did there) 😉

  47. This is amazeballs like rum balls. I can’t wait to see Santa in the B-School community 😉

    Marie, Louise, and the rest of Team Forleo from the bottom of my heart I want to extend the deepest gratitude and holiday blessings. Thank you for all you have done / are doing. All the best of the season!

    My wish is to find my puppy’s favorite toy. It’s gonna be a long trip today to my parents’ place without it.

    No but seriously, I wish for happy, healthy people all over the world doing what they love. Y’all are helping me work on that!! 🙂

    • Love ya Tonia oxo

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Oh no! I hope the toy is found. You are the shining light Tonia, we just get to help nourish the glow.

      Happiest of holidays to you and J,

      • Toy found! Only had 187 acres to scour. But it was a two in one. Dog walk plus found toy. In fact we found 3 toys!! (And subsequently lost one again, but we’re up two! That’s’ a plus 🙂 )

        • (And thank you for your very kind words 🙂 ) Smile smile. I will pass along the holiday wishes to Jay – we’re meeting in Vancouver in a couple hours. Hoorah! Family time 🙂 All the best!

  48. Sara B

    Happy Holidays to the entire Marie team!

    Receiving the gift of attending RHH Live in 2012 on scholarship was the best gift I’ve received for my personal growth. BSchool and RHH Live awakened me to an entirely new world of expansive growth and possibility!
    2013 rocked my world and prepared me for the massive shift I’ve gone through this year.
    Thank you, Marie (and your AMAZAEBALLS team!) for doing your thing and encouraging me to authentically do mine! 😉
    So glad to hear Santa is GF, hope he likes almond milk too! 😉

    This year I’ve asked Santa for video production equipment so I can rock out more high quality videos for my business in 2014. 🙂 And also, World Peace. 🙂

    A blessed holiday to all!
    Thanks again for everything you do!

  49. What do I want Most Most Most for Christmas?!!!! B-School Duh! No really it’s what I want, and at this moment I can’t afford it. Hope to get those pennies togetha’ in time!!! (I did ask Santa for some B-School help…I hope he heard me!) Love you Marie!!!

    • Hey Jenn! We have an incredible scholarship contest every year so DO keep saving and, DO plan to enter as well. More details in February 🙂 xoxo

  50. Marie & Team,
    You have truly made us appreciate the creative & unique delivery of business wisdom…Keep up the amazing work and know that we are your fans for a reason!! Merry Xmas and NOTHING should ever surpass the “true” reason for the Season!!!

    LoVe & rEsPeCt,


    P.S. MWAH!!!!!

  51. Cute Episode, I cannot believe that I just discovered you 2 weeks ago…That’s a gift within itself!! To add to that, my Christmas wish is that I fully align with my purpose in regards to business in 2014. I want clear vision to accompany that purpose as well. Thanks Santa..:)

    Happy Holidays everyone!!!

    • Awesome Tiffani and WELCOME to the family 🙂 xoxo

  52. My biggest wish for 2014, is for my business to finally take off. I’ve spent a couple years in the red now.

  53. Isabel

    Hilarious video Marie! Santa is a naughty boy…haha…

    What I wish for this Christmas and 2014, is to be able to launch my coaching biz full time and finally quit my “day job” that takes up all of the precious time I could be using on my business.

    Merry Christmas to you Marie and to all of the family at MarieTV!! I wish you even more success and laughter in the new year and look forward to more videos from yourself as well as B-School…..yeah baby!!!!

    Love and hugs all the way from London, UK

    • Merry Christmas Isabel. Your wishes are VERY doable and believe you can accomplish this and so much more xoxo

  54. Happy Holidays Everyone!

    My holiday wish is that someone who could help me with my career, notice my talents and open a door of opportunity that I could walk through.

    May all your holiday wishes come to pass.

    A:) xo

  55. Shae Anderson

    Loved it!! Thank you so much for such creative , funny, and truly inspirational videos!

    This season I just want to be surrounded by family and friends, sharing in love, laughter and food of course! Santa if you’re talking material items–my wish would be to receive a MacBook so I can continue to build my business online. Can you make that happen? 😛

    I want to wish everyone at the MarieTV team a Merry Christmas! Looking forward to the great things to come in 2014!! Xoxo

  56. Marie, I just loved your creative video!

    My wish for this holiday season would be to promote b-school to my new audience on my site.

    The way I hope to do that is to interview you Marie for 360 seconds.

    Is this a wish you can make come true Marie? 🙂

    Guuurrrrl, love your work and I know my peeps would love you too!

  57. Alejandra, I’m so deeply sorry for your loss. Sending you my prayers for you, your family, and a healthy recovery for all xoxo

  58. Merry Christmas, Marie, to you & all your loved ones; all the best in the New Year.

  59. Brittany

    My holiday wish: To take Marie out for coffee

  60. Pia

    Hi Marie
    Crikey – that Santa is bit forward, isn’t he? Jeez!
    I live alone, and am now thinking I may have to block up the chimney!
    What would I like for Christmas?
    I want to be given the gift of learning how to stop looking a myself with shame, and to stop viewing myself as an absolute failure.
    I don’t know why I am so hard on myself, or why I can’t turn my life around, but I do know that I am completely unhappy.
    I need to be given the gift of acceptance (I think).
    Merry Christmas Marie and all your own wonderful MF Elves.

    • Hi Pia! Thank you so much for your note. I know that many, many people feel the same way you do (feeling shame, like a failure, being hard on yourself.) Here are a few steps that can help.

      1. Start with gratitude. As clichéd as it may be, start making a list of everything you can appreciate right now — especially about yourself.
      Your heart is beating, your blood is pumping, you have a computer to connect to the world 🙂

      Keep going and going and going. Make this a habit every day when you wake up and before you go to sleep.Change your thoughts and what you’re giving attention to, and you really can change your world.

      2. Get engaged in physical activity. Not sure how often you exercise (or how vigorous) but regular exercise can positively alter your mood and optimizes your brain. Read SPARK by John Ratey for more!

      3. Regular spiritual practice. Depending on your personal beliefs, regular meditation and prayer can be a lifesaver.

      Of course, these are just a few ideas to get you started. Everyone is different, and therefore will have a different “prescription” so-to-speak that will work for them.

      I have no doubt, however, that you can and will find a way to more sustained happiness if you stay the course. With love xoxo M

      • Diana

        Three tried and true habits 🙂 Thank you for sharing this in one place again, Marie.

      • I want to give free readings to anyone interested in talking to me and my angels for the new year! As long as I can get a testimonial for my website.

        • Kay

          @Nandi, I’ve sent you an email.

      • Pia

        Hi Marie
        Thank you. I didn’t expect a personal response. I’m a bit embarrassed, as I was just putting out my wish to the ‘universe’.
        I have worked a LONG time, to be kinder to myself. Of the three awesome techniques you have listed, I am an advocate for and participant of two of them. The one I don’t?
        Meditation/spirituality. I’m working on it 🙂
        I am in a deep hole at the moment and am doing my best to pull myself out. I am enrolled in B-School, have joined a wealth-education course (Barefoot Investor) and am looking for the ‘silver lining’ in every day.
        Thank you for being such a caring soul, that you wish to help others find their passion in life. You are extremely generous.

    Oh. I am excited to write to you this year! Marie has taught me so much andI really am trying to digest the sh#+ sandwich I’ve been given throughout 2013. My hope is this – somehow, someway help me find my voice. Similar to Marie. I can speak, but need a helping hand getting my business going. You know how badly I WANT this. To help others, myself, my family. I’ve had no income for nearly a year and am not going to make it unless I find that darn unlocked door. I’ve tried to break it down (*cue music*) and apparently my hip-hop moves aren’t jiggy enough to force myself through. Unlike Marie obviously. 😉 So, maybe kinda vague. But, writing makes my anxiety condition so horrible that I truly need a way to get my message out and build my business so my fam can eat.

    Much love from this single mom. And thanks for being so great Santa!
    Merry Christmas,
    Melissa 🙂

      Hi Melissa!
      I just wanted to tell you 2013 was a sh*t show for me too. Glad to see it go! Looks like you’ve had some serious troubles, and I want you to know that your story really puts this holiday season into perspective for me. How about we connect? I’d love to help if I can. ([email protected])
      Much love and hope,

  63. This year I’m super thankful for Marie blessing me with the opportunity to do B-School and for the many ‘ah ha’ moments I’ve had as a result of watching her videos and implementing what she’s taught in my business and life.

    My Christmas wish is for health and happiness but also for me to take what I learnt in 2013 and apply it to 2014 and beyond. I also wish to be in the position to help, lead and inspire others to go after their dreams. Last but not least, I wish to always be grateful for the blessings that God has given me and to count my blessings even when things aren’t going perfectly.

    Wishing Marie, Team Forleo and everyone in this community a very Happy Christmas! 🙂

  64. B Schoooooooool!!!

  65. Loved the video… Festive AND encouraging!

    Santa, if you could send me aaaaany resources to help make 2014 my year of “Taking Action, Making Change” and kickstarting my event planning business, I’d be overjoyed. There is so much info out there, it can be hard to sort through the junk to find the real gems of information.

    Merry, Merry to all!

  66. This was a very cute and creative video Marie!

    My XMas wish this year is to recruit at least 34 people to be beta users for my startup company, Rhetorist. Rhetorist focuses on helping people to stop selling themselves short and breakthrough their #1 fear – public speaking, using crowd feedback to gain impactful results. It’s like Toastmasters but for the 21st century! I want to validate whether those shy speakers can really benefit from this concept before putting a whole lot of my own money into the company.

    Happy Holidays!


  67. I wish everyone peace!

  68. I want to join B-School, Santa!

    Also, I love your dress, Marie! Merry Xmas to everyone!

  69. Thank-you for the Christmas chortle, I appreciate your persuasive passion & precision. My Christmas wish is to make GoFarmU the place to be for holistic farm & nutrition education in 2014. I want to be the Marie Forleo of farming. It’s time to get down in the dirt. Who knows what fun we can have with sinful cilantro? Spring is coming…

  70. Diana

    Hello Marie and the team, happy holidays!
    This holiday season I have had more time and passion than usual to find my chakra/energy balance (it feels like a mess…). I would love to be able to find quality resources for daily balance. Have any of you experienced this energy flow through a program or coach?
    Also, I’ve already signed up for B-School…so can someone help with fast forwarding the calendar to get that thing started!! Much love and light to all of you. I look forward to hearing from you and Marie.

    • Diana

      PS-I love US-made denim…so a pair of that would be a material holiday gift 😀 Loves!

  71. This was the perfect pre-holiday video, thank you! I especially loved the outtakes at the end! My holiday wish is this: that this be the year I can relax into who I am and do what I’m here to do, without stress worry or angst. I now KNOW my purpose in my heart and soul – something that took me a very long time to figure out – and in living it I want to simply surrender and allow. I wish this for everyone else as well! Thanks Marie for b-school (2011 class here) and all you and your team are doing to make a difference!

    XO Laura

  74. As always- LOVE Marie Tv! It’s become an inspiration and encouragement every week. I LOVE YOU MARIE! 🙂 lol. Merry Christmas!

  75. My Christmas Wish:

    I am a Makeup Artist who is currently a student in Human Resources Management. Makeup is my passion, and I would love to use it as a platform to encourage clients/fans to be CONFIDENT, RESILIENT and STRONG. Because I am currently a student I am finding that I do not have the financial capability to go to networking events in the city to get my message out, and gain more of a clientele. I live in Vancouver BC (Canada), and since the majority of these contests are only for residents residing in the USA, I look forward to you taking this one into consideration. I would love tickets to the Wedding Fair in January, and possibly a ticket to New York or London to meet and greet industry leads in the beauty industry.

  76. That was a fun video… I’d like an iPhone 5s so I can easily take photos for my blog, join instagram (great for networking) and create visual content for my business marketing. Please, please, please… ; )

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    I wish for some carefree time. Every day is filled with so much stress these days, I just want to have one great relaxing day. I had no problem creating carefree days in my younger years. Seems that the older you get the harder it is. Oh well that’s my wish – happy holidays to you guys and thanks for the laughs 🙂

  78. Dear Santa,

    I have a lot of wishes that I want to see come true, but wishing won’t take me anywhere, right? I would love to say that I’m turning those wishes into goals, but I suck at planning (and saving) and I need that boost of confidence to stick to whatever I say I’m going to do.

    Since I’m a photographer the best present you can send me is some gear! My dream camera is a Canon 5D Mark III, but I can’t afford it, I’ve been trying to save money, my bank account is getting bigger, but not as fast as I would like to, at this pace by the time I have the money for that camera they are going to release a new one cooler than that one and I won’t be able to afford it either… This camera issue has been corroding my patience and my confidence of being able to reach goals… And I’m also scared that my Canon Rebel XS, that I work with now, one day will give its last breath and I’ll have nothing to work with.

    My second wish came true this year, I went into full time photographer over a year ago and this year I can actually say at I’m able to make a living with my profession, yay!! But there’s still a lot to do, I don’t have a business plan, I don’t keep accounting (just some basic excel sheet with income and expenses, that I don’t update as often as needed)… In plain words I need a system, a plan and a will of steel to stick to it.

    And my third wish will be for my mom to be completely cancer free this next year. After two years of battling breast cancer she’s winning, but there’s still a thyroid surgery in January, and some chemotherapy left to do. She’s a trooper, she’s always smiling and whenever we have the chance we go to the movies, shopping, you name it, but the ghost of cancer is always near. I know mom will win the fight, but I would like that to happen sooner rather than later.

    Ok, this has been a very long letter, but since you wanted to know my wishes here they are. I hope you, with the help of Marie, can make some of our wishes come true.

    With love, Emilia.
    Writing you from warm Ecuador in South America, just reminding you where you can visit me later this evening 😉

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      I hope that your photography-specific wishes come true but please know we are sending all of our best thoughts and hopes for a full recovery for your mom. May 2014 find her cancer-free – and soon!

      Wishing you a wonderful holiday,

      • Thank you for your wishes, Louise. Happy holidays for you and all the Marie TV team. Wishing you the very best for 2014

  79. Julieta

    Hi Marie and team Forleo!

    I was expecting a video like this one (perfect timing Santa!)

    My wish present is to see the face of my 2 kids tomorrow morning, I have a very very special surprise for them 😉

    So, no more to say (I need to do a lot of stuff today) MERRY CHRISTMAS to you, to every member at you team and to all the Marie TV community.
    I hope this Christmas be more about people and creating special connections than about present.
    You only live once, make it worthy 😉

    with love, Julieta

  80. Absolutely loved this episode, Marie! What a fabulous gift just in time for Christmas. Thank you SO much! My wish is for myself & everyone else that watches MarieTV to actively apply more of the amazing gems that you teach into our businesses & our lives (I say this as I can imagine that I’m not the only one who needs to do this). Much gratitude to you for being a beacon of light in my life, lady!

  81. Adrianne

    I live in Italy and my family is in the US so I wish that there was an easier way for all of us to be together on the holidays! (aside from just Skype 😉 ) What I’d really love is for my twin sister to visit with my nephew on our birthday in June. Financially thats not on their to-do list and while I am working on it myself (side gig and working on a gig) a little Christmas magic in June would be awesome lol.

    That and world peace!

  82. meagan

    my holiday wish is to receive a $15,000 scholarship so i can focus on my education at the denver aveda institute.

  83. Hey Marie,

    I rarely leave comments on your blog but this one was just too cute. Plus I get to put in my wish. My wish for 2014 – to move into the mid six-figures helping women start amazing businesses.

    Thanks for all your work. You’re an inspiration!

  84. Oh! While you have Santa there could you ask him to bring me a new MacBook, as mine seems to be dying a slow and painful death? 🙂

    Just love MarieTV. Thank all of you so much and happiest of holidays to you too!!

  85. car

    You’re amazing Marie!
    Thank you for making me laugh out loud this morning!!
    I especially loved the outtakes. 😀

    My biggest wish this holiday season is to turn my full attention to all the GOOD in my life…to focus focus focus there and feeeeeel amazing in doing so!!!
    I got my family, friends, health, beautiful home, biz and B-school in my back pocket!
    Life is GOOD!
    Sending you a big Santa hug from sunny L.A.

  86. Instant response: I’d love to find a way to give the guy at the back of your ‘wishes from all of us’ moment who doesn’t look so happy something that would make him smile from top to toe!

    3 minute response: Apart from that? I’d love you to share a Christmas verse from this B’School lovin’ poet this time next year! Thanks Marie, can’t wait to re-do B’School in 2014 and thank you for how it’s blessed me so far.

  87. LOL, hilarious and so fun!

    A mastermind group would be great for Christmas and winning a new car.

    Yeah, that would be awesome.

    Thank you Marie for all the great knowledge and community in B-school. I am so grateful I have a place to go and feel supported.

  88. Fantastic! Santa please oh please could you make it where I can go to BSchool? I have been wanting to go since last year 🙂 Taught myself to code and want to share with others how I did it! BSchool will help me organize my talents so I can write my curriculum and take Developer Diva to the next level. Thank you so much Santa! Merry Christmas!

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      We would love to have you join us in B-School. More information, including details on our awesome scholarship contest, coming in February!

      Wishing you a very happy holidays,

      • Thanks Louise Happy Holidays To You and The whole gang!

  89. Becka

    What I would TRULY appreciate is a swift kick in the butt! My passion for fitness and my general passion for life has just fizzled, and it breaks my heart…i’m able to touch and help so many more people when i’m feeling proud of myself, and i don’t at the moment AT ALL! I love to compete in fitness competitions, and if i don’t start taking it seriously ASAP i know i won’t be happy, or setting a good example….& it truly kills me.
    I wish this could be something i could recieve, but i have to find it inside, which is proving to be INCREDIBLY hard these past 6 months….I hope that everyone is truly able to follow through with there goals and get/maintain a passion for life! As well as enjoy the holidays!

  90. Love it, Marie! I have had a very trying 2013, only to end with a bang in the last two weeks that has me thinking that 2014 will be MUCH brighter!! So in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better 2013, really!

    Struggling through tough times makes the sweet times so much sweeter! So I’m grateful for the trials I’ve seen this year and so amazingly excited to greet 2014!

    With all that said, I’d also like a Garmin running watch! (Can’t a girl actually want something tangible? 🙂 I’ve started running this year, but I don’t have a watch that will even tell me how long I’ve been running. And having to look up where I’m going before I go is a hassle…..I never feel comfortable enough to just head out and run……I’ve always hated running, but now I’ve found solace in it.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!

  91. For Christmas, I would love an early meet and greet date with all B-schoolers before the start of the class, so we can make connections and get motivated while in school; compliments of Marie herself!

    I want to breath sweet eggnog fresh breath on my honey! Muah!

  92. Ha ha, I loved seeing “Santa” on the show. My Christmas wish is to help as more women create their dream jobs next year.

  93. Love it Marie! Merry Christmas and Santa I will be leaving you lots of gluten- free goodies tonight! Sign up for B – School everyone- it has changed my life and my business!! Hugs

  94. Happy Christmas, Merry Everything! Thanks for years of awesome, inspiring videos Marie. I have all I could wish for, health, inner joy, and a great lover man.
    Though I hope that my next book gets finished and published 2014, what I wish for is not for me. My sister’s 3 year old, my niece Olivia, passed away in April and I just wish the deepest peace for her and my family….
    May the New Year bring brighter days. <3

  95. Dear Marie,

    Thank you for your Merry XMAS Message.

    The way you interviewed Santa made me laugh till the last minute.

    I really liked your free flowing style. I liked the way by which Christianity changed the world especially Asia.

    I always spread the message of Jesus to my friends just like one of my dear friends named Joseph Reddy from Goa, India.

    Please continue your good efforts to establish strong business relationship techniques.

    Thank you and wishing you a very happy holiday season full of good wishes and gifts.

    Rohan Sarker

  96. Marie + Santa!

    You are so creative! LMAO especially that that 3rd question. You bring fun & smiles to so many with your videos and for that I am so grateful!

    What I want for this holiday season, and into 2014 is FREEDOM in multiple forms, emerging from doing what makes me *most* happy. Joy –> Freedom. Making it happen. Figuring it out. Being independent and relishing quantum leaps. Watching more MarieTV! Sacred service helping millions.



  97. Amber

    Merry Christmas Marie!!! My holiday wish is to be able to go to B School this year and get my business off the ground!! Xo

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      We would be honored to have you in B-School, I hope your wish comes true too!

      Wishing you all the best for the year ahead,

  98. Happy Holidays Marie & Co! Thank you for all that you do, it’s very inspirational.

    I’m kind of new around here, but am so excited about the upcoming B school. It seems like every successful blogger/entrepreneur I follow has done it, so I’m so in!

    My wish is for my family to be happy and light this year. We’ve all had a tough year and I can already see it take a toll on my son. And he’s only TWO!

    Being the breadwinner in our family is stressful and not having much time to spend with them is no fun. So I wish to expand my business this year so I can quit my job. Woot! Can’t wait to blow it up!

  99. The bar has just been raised!

    I loved seeing J. aka Santa and the whole Marie TV team – what a great episode!

    My wish for Christmas is to see everyone opening up to greater levels of love, joy, and success every day! I know Santa can make that happen, and B-school too! 🙂

  100. Marie you are HILARIOUS! I needed the laugh and the info! Thank you. Happy Holidays!

  101. haha I can’t wait to see Santa in B-School! 😉

    My Christmas wish…for the stress, impatience/anger — in other words, FEAR — surrounding my family to be lifted and replaced with only LOVE for ALL.

  102. Lex

    Such a super wonderful video, thank You!

    This holiday season I wish to keep waking up more and more.

  103. Can’t wait to watch this video! But I just had to tell you right away…Your hair looks amazing! It keeps looking better and better too! Have a great holiday! xoxoxo

  104. My wish this Christmas is to sip tea with Marie in London, UK in 2014. Can we make it happen?

  105. Marie – Santa cracks me up. Nice work.

    My wife and I are expecting baby #2 in February, so my biggest wish is just that the rest of my wife’s pregnancy goes well and that we have a heathy and happy baby boy.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Love your wish John, sending her our best too!

  106. My christmas wish is to get the Mindfully Organized Podcast up and running. 🙂

  107. Hey Marie!

    Loved this episode. If I had one wish for this Christmas is that I will be able to grow my business in 2014. It’s not for me, it’s for the sake of my one year old daughter. Being able to work from home and spend time watching her grow is more than I can ask for. I’ve been blessed thus far but as my business goes into it’s first year anniversary, I want to grow my business so I can comfortably spend time with bit daughter not stressing about what if’s.

    Merry Christmas Marie!


  108. What a great holiday video. So much fun! Happy Holidays to all of you. My wish is for my business to flourish with more clients.

  109. Marie (and Santa),

    You always make me smile! This last year was great, and I’m expecting 2014 to be even better. The one thing that’s on my list year is a new home! We relocated to the Bay Area in November and the housing market is Crazy!! So pretty please Santa! Help a girl out! 😉

    And Marie, you’re always tons of help! So a big fat THANK YOU to you and your team! Happy Holidays!!!!


  110. kittybaroque

    Made my Xmas list, saving for & keeping my tax return for B-School!
    It’s time to let go of all the fear, anxiety & the ‘should nots’ – and get out of under the cover watching ‘Real Housewives…”- and leap into a new beginning. Just GOTTA find a way to use my creative skills and find a business model that allows me to be of greater service by being ME. I would like a MASSIVE dose of taking ACTION please Santa X

  111. Hahaha! That was hell of a Santa!

    Merry Christmass everyone!!!


  112. I wish for this holiday season is to attend your B-school! I love watching you and I’m ready to kick my business to the next level. I had friends give amazing feedback to your school. Merry Xmas and keep up the awesome work!

    Until then, wishing you enough –

  113. My wish is for your continued success! You have been helpful and inspiring. I am sure you ARE on Santa’s “nice” list. Christmas Blessings to You.

  114. Love it! Merry Christmas! xoxo

  117. Merry Christmas, Marie! As I thought about your question about what I want for Christmas, I had to stop myself. Many things came to mind all at once, but as I thought through it I realized that I can make any and all of those desires happen for myself, if I REALLY want them. So, I think what I REALLY want is to finally know what I REALLY want.

  118. Kelly S.

    Marie, what Zion would really live this holiday is the opportunity to live my dream if becoming a self-empowerment coach and bring my natural talents and gifts to the world. I would be humbled with an opportunity to attend B-School and a scholarship would greatly increase my chances of that going from a dream to a reality! Thanks Marie!

  119. Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas to you Marie + Santa. What a groovy video. Have a lovely day, I’ll be spending mine on the beach under the hot Aussie sun. xx

  120. My wish is that I will be able to help 1,000 new families with the aid of my online program that will be launched in early 2014 (THANKS BSCHOOL 2013) … with those funds and all that lovely-juicy-helping-mojo, I would love to purchase a beautiful, warm, playful, creative home for my son and I to move out of rental status!

    Love to you and yours this holiday season… Thank you for all that you do!

  121. For the holidays, I would LOVE to have lunch with Marie!

  122. Marion Passon

    My wish this year ( and to be honest it is more of a goal ( wish with action)), is to become a “winning woman” rather than a “nice girl”.
    I am having my break up from my partner finally confirmed ( it took a year of going back and forth, because I was hoping for change from his side).
    I am going to be on my own, with no financial back, nearly no furnishes, no real friends, very few family, a job I do not like (painter) , and lots of lots Ideas.
    Ah did I mention that I am over 50?!
    I am realizing that my whole life was for other people, in order to be NICE!
    People do not dig NICE, they like determine, deceive and strong.
    So that is what I wish for 2014

  123. Wishing you all the best for 2014, Marie. Keep up the fabulous work!

  124. Antonio G.

    My wish would be to reach 200 followers on twitter before the year ends, my twitter handle is @lordcoyote2000. I hope that you all have a very happy holiday season.

  125. Erika Hilliard

    I was excited trying to guess who the guest would be. So creative and cute! It’s been great watching and learning from you. Wished I had found you years ago. I have even got my 25 year old watching you and we are learning together. I don’t need much but I would love to get a MacBook Pro. My laptop of 6 years shuts off and overheats and it’s not in the budget to purchase a new one. Wishing you and your staff a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  126. Stacy

    Hi Marie!
    My Christmas wish is to find my true passion, so that I can be the best “Helper” in this world I can be. I have lots of love to give, and want to create something very special for myself to share with the world in hopes to inspire more people to love more. I love what your doing here, I love your insights, and I would love to meet Oprah too! Happy Holidays!

  127. Marie,
    Your out takes at the end of every video crack me up. Not that I don’t love your content but I love that you show us that you don’t have to be perfect every time. Plus Santa being unintentionally inappropriate in the out takes was hysterical.

    All the best!

  128. Melanie

    My wish for 2014 is to spend more time with my family and invest time to volunteer work. This past year I devoted a lot of my time going to events and promoting my business. Though it was a lot of fun and I met some great people, I feel that my business was taking over my life to the point where I was rethinking my business plan.

    Just like your tweet states, I get so much more out of giving to others and not forgetting what makes me happy. We’ll see!

    By the way, Santa rocks! My business, Sunkissed Bakery, provides gluten-free and delicious sweet treats, so tell him to give me a call if he is ever on vacay in central Cali!

  129. Jay Westbrook

    Your hair looks absolutely amazing, and seems like Santa continues to gift you with beauty, grace, humor, smarts, great attitude, and eternal youth. This world is a better place because of you, and you challenge us and role model for us to always be better. Thank you, and may your New Year be healthy, wealthy, fun, service-based and gratitude-filled.
    as always, in love & service – jay – Compassionate Journey

  130. Peggy DaValt

    Hi Marie –

    I loved this episode!! I am SO excited to move into 2014 and to accomplish more things than I did in 2013. However, I just want to make sure that once you’re in B-School…can you stay in it? I mean…can I finish up all the stuff from 2013? I hope that I can (I thought that it was one of the huge reasons I joined). Thank YOU so much for making my life so much richer in 2013. I learned to network with so many B-School Babes and Men from the forums and to even take some of them up on their amazing Pay it Forward Friday Offers and to just learn there. That forum is simply outstanding!! :).

    Okay…and now….was that Josh P as Santa? 🙂

    Merry Christmas to all at Marie TV, B-School and enjoy life…you all make a huge difference and thank you for doing that!!

    Peggy DaValt

  131. Hi Marie, team and everybody else
    Thank you so much for all the fantastic content from this year.
    I hope you have a safe and happy holiday.

    My holiday wish is that lots of people read the short story I wrote for Christmas.

    Merry Christmas

  132. Susan

    Sorry to be such a downer, but there was a misprint in Santa’s letter…….

  133. Hilarious..thanks Marie and Santa! 🙂

    My holiday wish: build strong, excited teams internationally! Just launched in China last month and excited for Colombia’s launch in a month 🙂

  134. Happy Holidays!
    I wish for more schools around the world to educate girls so they can then sign up for B School and change the world!!!
    And I would like Peace on Earth.

  135. Hi Marie (and Louise!)

    Thank you so much for your video series, your emails, and B-School. I found it a year ago in September and everything changed when I won the scholarship to RHHL. During the Q&A on Saturday night, Marie told me to trust myself, quit my day job, and go for it! The first wedding I booked after that was a four day destination wedding in the Dominican Republic that was officiated by Michael Beckwith! That was the sign I needed to trust the big things that the universe has in store for me! (as I love him and admire him greatly)

    And I did exactly that! I finished out my teaching contract in June and have more than tripled my income since leaving my teaching job (and it’s doing what I LOVE!). Things have opened up in my world when I was able to be in charge of my own life! I was even hired for a shoot by Sports Illustrated magazine after they found my feed on Instagram and loved it! I’ve shot weddings in London (all from B School connections) and Ireland and Paris this year. I also got to spend a week with Mastin Kipp in Maui after learning about him on your show. You’ve really been a catalyst for great change and I wanted to let you know that! Thank you!

    For this year my wish is to photograph high end destination weddings during the spring & summer and take the fall to go to Italy for a month and study italian and write. Here’s to 2014!

    My bigger dream….get a photograph published in Vogue magazine.

    Happy Holidays to all of team Forleo! And Thank you!

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      So delighted for all your year’s joyous accomplishments – you deserve all of this awesomeness and more D’Arcy!!! Keep us posted on the updates (Vogue!!), we love watching you soar. Here’s the best year yet for everyone.

  136. I hope through my work and passion I can move toward diminishing the stigma surrounding mental illness. We need to take the “I” out of mental illness and change it “WE” in mental wellness. I train shelter dogs to be psychiatric service dogs that transform the lives of those struggling with mental illness and they discoverwith their dog by their side independence, wholeness and an ability to live a productive fulfilling life. Peace and gratitude, jane

    • That’s amazing ! I totally back you ! Contact me via email because I also have connections in my state and no kill private federally funded places that can help save some if you are overwhelmed !! I respect that! God was those who truly are givers and want to change the world ! Like Margaret mead said ” like mind Individuals are the … Change the world. Etc ….” Keep up the good work !

      • jessica,
        Thanks so much. What is your email? Mine is [email protected] and feel free to contact me. Peace and gratitude, jane

        • I was just reading through the comments – What a wonderful and PURPOSEFUL service you are doing for people Jane!! I know first hand about service dogs and how important they are for healing. My ex is a 100% disabled vet. He doesn’t have a dog – BUT, I have met many veterans that DO have service dogs and they have truly been life savers to them.

          I realize that service dogs can serve in many capacities – but regardless, they and their trainers are a true blessing to everyone involved.

          I wish you much joy and blessings in every area of your life!! Happy Holidays to you & yours. 🙂


          • C,
            If I can ever be of help let me know. My work is my passion. Peace and gratitude, jane

  137. I want to ask Santa for help with starting my shelter plans back up after my house fire …. I like in the video have lost so much and then lost my mom to cancer in the same year … I was ahead of the game confident and had a plan networking and making things happen I’m out of energy and feel empty and have little to no one to help pick me up off the ground now… I have always been the giver and never the taker and I want so bay to start my shelter !! We need so many more in my state there is not enough! It’s very rural and much in country and so many animals get dropped off at farms and on the side of the road because all our shelters are full and only take animals sighing there county lines !!!! So Santa!!!! Please bring me the gift and wisdom I need or support to help me help those less fortunate be ause that’s the one and only thing I ever really wanted to do!

    • Jessica, I truly understand where you are coming from when you speak of your mother and losing parts of your life. I miss my mother so much and at times I DO feel so lost. Mothers are such a part of us and it is sometimes such a surprise to realize how much we really miss them……at least that is true for me. 🙂 Even after 3 years of my mother being gone, I still at times think “Oh, I’ll call my mom!!” . 🙁 Still hurts pretty deep.

      It’s good to know we have feelings though. It’s good to know ourselves well enough to understand we do hurt and grieving is a slow process. Doing it alone though is not so good – sometimes you need the alone time, but having trusted relationships to share ourselves with is paramount. Believe me…..I have learned this the hard way and it truly hasn’t done me any favors.

      I hope you will be encouraged that your dreams are still viable and that you ARE here for a purpose! That you realize just how important it is for you to continue your work – not only for others, but for yourself. 🙂 Passionate people make wonderful energy that all are attracted to. We reflect each others energy – be it negative or POSITIVE!!! I don’t know you, and I hope I haven’t offended in any sort of manner. I just felt like I needed to come along side you and say “Hey friend, your journey is not alone.” and leave you with a hug and smile.

      Blessings & shalom to you! May you have every desire in your life and more!!


  138. Renata

    I want to REMOTE VIEW the winning lottery numbers.

    I did before. Actually twice! But I played other numbers as I had silly doubts I had the actual numbers! What??? I honestly remote viewed all the winning lottery numbers. A big lesson in Intuition and listening to your inner guidance. That was for a $50 Million Jackpot.

    Like everyone on the planet. I wish for 100% health, Shelter, Protection, Organic food, Happiness, to love and to be loved unconditionally and to share abundance and joy and laughter with everyone.

  139. Marie, what is wrong with Santa. LOL!I can’t believe this fool tried to kiss you! LMAO!

  140. Carol

    All I want for Christmas is…
    … A place at B-School!
    Could someone sponsor me please? It would be my best Christmas pressie ever 🙂
    Thanks Marie – so encouraging.
    Happy Christmas everyone xx

  141. Marie – thank you so much for this episode. I look forward to seeing you every Tuesday. This episode was hilarious.

    I’m already so lucky. The advice you give me each week does help me create a business and life I love :).

    So, what would I like from Santa this Christmas? I’d love a FIG METRO winter coat to keep me warm. 🙂

    What’s on your Christmas list Marie? Thanks for all your great work. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! xox

  142. Merry Christmas Marie and Crew.
    Thank you so much for everything you and your crew do. I’ve followed, watched and re-watched your videos for over a year now. I must say, they have given me a lot of insightful information that has helped me through some hard times, as well as the good times. My Christmas wish, besides health and happiness to the world, is this… I wish to generate more followers on my social networks and spread my cartoon pinup illustration around the world. I want to go viral without spending a dime.

  143. Dear Marie & Crew too,

    Over this past year I have been subscribed to your e-mails & MarieTV. Love, LoVe, LOOOOOVE it!!!! You have truly helped me through some extreme life challenges and the times I was feeling very depressed and frustrated/exhausted I would do MarieTV marathons just to sort of drag myself out of all the muck.

    I am still going through some major life “management” issues – learning boundries, getting rid of toxic relationships, learning & accepting some things about myself that I am not too fond of….but, I have found a mentor (that is YOU MISS MARIE) that really puts many of my questions/fears into perspective and gives me the ability to move forward with a somewhat more defined vision of how I want to live my life.

    I have to say at age 48, I am feeling rather “behind-the-curve”, but hearing your motivating statements really helps me to get beyond myself and again, laser focus on MY desires and dreams. It’s a slow process at times – but perseverance is the key.

    I wish you all a very Happy & Joyful Holiday Season. Many of you are behind the scenes, but I have great appreciation for all of you. 🙂

    Blessings & Shalom to all!!

    C.A. Lewis-McCarren

  144. Daniela

    Marie, this is the most hilarious and unforgettable Santa Fantasy ever!
    Two big wishes: Peace on Earth and getting started to set up my business.
    Your contributions are so valued and help me on the way. Merry Christmas to you Marie and your team!

  145. Marie and MarieTV Team,

    Loved this video!! For my Christmas wish I would love a scholarship to B-School!! I am starting a catering business and cooking program. I have decided to attend B-School, but I am on very limited income and would love the chance to learn all that B-School provides and apply it to my business and life goals!!

  146. Merry Christmas Marie ! Hope you had a wonderful day and Santa delivered all you were hoping for :). My Christmas wish is to be able to attend Life Mastery with Tony Robbins in 2014 — preferably on Figi at his resort, Namale. ;). Wishing you & yours an abundant New Year filled with all things good.

  147. Merry Christmas to you all ! My Christmas wish is a simple one…. To have the courage to stand in my power and ask for what I want. X

  148. Ahahahahahaha Marie I love you. Good reminders in here. Merry Christmas and I can’t wait to see what you cook up in the New Year.

    And to open-mouth-kiss-Santa, what I want most is admission to B School! I am waiting with baited breath for the scholarship contest. It’s on !!


    • As -well- as *bated breath. ;}

      (Sorry, I’m excited, and I’ve had 14 glasses of mulled wine)

  149. Dear Marie
    I have taken B-school and I am so grateful for all I have learn from you. Before B-School my last workshop had 100 people which is not bad but after B-School 250!!! I am now in the process of redoing my web site applying all your B-School wisdom, my wish is for you to review my web site before it goes life (not a big web site) and let me know what can be improve or if i am missing something that is very important. This will be a dream come true!
    To Marie and team
    Thank you for everything!

  150. No joke, I just asked my husband “What if Santa was gluten free?”

    Fun episode. Merry Christmas!

  151. Melissa

    Merry Christmas Marie! I would also love to go to B school! I am a single mom, and work as a health coach corporate wellness. I am also a yoga teacher and am just starting to take the steps to create my own business. I can relate to Santa in the fact that I am burnt out, working way to much, and feel exhaused. I am definitely going to check out the video on that! 🙂 Any advice on scholarships to your program or on ways to “fundraise” for yourself for educational opportunities that will support participating in things you are passionate about and support your career? Thanks for being so FABULOUS! You are such a gem!! xoxox

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      We will share all the details of our B-School scholarship contest during our launch videos which start up in early February. The best advice is to go for it and enter!! We’ve also known of people to run fundraising campaigns or seek our grants for B-School as well, lots of incredible creativity.

      Wishing you a wonderful rest of the holiday season,

  152. Anastasia

    Very creative!!! Loved it.

    I launched my website about a month ago so I wish it become a success in 2014 and I did my first money with it in 2014. I wish health for my parents, friends and myself. I wish love and be loved and feel comfortable, cared and supported in my relationship. I wish be myself and create this year in accordance with my vision!

  153. Hi, Marie and Santa

    What I wish is what I have 🙂
    Awesome friends and family, a growing business, my dreams coming true (for some of them I’m not even prepared yet)..

    Thank you so much for this fun – very inspiring and warm and fuzzy

  154. Ashley

    OK!!!!!! So I have been following Marie for over two years. I bought b school last year and I am just now doing it. I am 9 months pregnant and was due two days ago. Anyway that was probably one of the most hilarious videos of yet. I don’t know why I don’t comment hardly ever, probably because I feel it won’t matter and most people won’t read it but I am ready to stay involved. Gonna do b school fully and get my world changer game on!! What I want for Christmas, Marie, is to be able to comment and interact with everyone who is doing b school this year, since I didn’t do it really last year. I feel badly that I was still self sabotaging but I believe I know what I’m supposed to do now. What my online business will be and I am so excited! Can you help?

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      I hope that your new baby has come by now and you are relaxing but when you are able to dive back in, definitely write us as bschool @ and we can help with advice in regards to taking part in the next live round of B-School (alumni can take part for free as you have lifetime access!).

      Take care and congratulations,

  155. LOL! So cute!

    Happy holidays team Forleo!

  156. Brilliant! loved this video and B-School rocks. So happy to be part of it again this year. My holiday wish is to enjoy every moment and recharge for an amazing 2014.

    Thank you Marie + Team. Have a fantastic rest of the year.

  157. Ana

    LOVE this <3 Merry Christmas~!

    My Biggest wish this holiday is for our upcoming new project to come out into the world!
    My friends Amanda, Kenya and I teamed up to bring "Modern Goddesses" out into the world! We are in our early 20's trying to help/guide girls our age to live a soulful life ( following your heart in this modern world) through videos (talk show) masterminds, etc.. We've done a few videos and are SO excited about it 😀 our generation is awesome too!! SO grateful for role models like YOU Marie <3


  158. keith

    This Santa was hilarious. He actually sounds like Ron Burgundy. In all seriousness this guy is really funny.

    Nice job!

  159. Marie – I fuckin love you! (from a fellow jersey girl to another)

    Seriously, the past year has been the roughest and toughest – but with downfall comes risings and that’s exactly what I did. I’m beyond grateful that I discovered you and your work – you have truly helped me with a lot of the unknowns of being a new entrepreneur!

    My biggest wish this holiday season is to stay happy & fulfilled with what I am given. Even more so, set myself up for success in 2014 aka fill my barely-1-year-old-practice with new & super motivated clients!!!! Ahhhhh!

    Thank you again for being you and for giving me something to look forward to every Tuesday 🙂

    Much love,

  160. B-School, here I come! Happy New Year to all the inspiring people in this community and much gratitude to Marie & Team. xo

  161. Is there still room for B school?

    • Louise - Team Forleo

      Absolutely! We will be opening up registration again in February, after sharing some truly amazing training videos. Sign up at to be the first to know and stay tuned!!

      Hope you have a lovely holiday,

  162. Cat

    Merry Christmas Marie!

    I’m looking forward to 2014. So far my business has been a hobby and passion. My brand has a lot of fans and I’d like to build the next level. My Christmas Wish is to be able to shine my passion all around, by learning and applying important business tools, like the ones in B-School. Valuable business skills and a community of support would lift me past the fear of risk and consequent hesitation. Business skills = Life skills. Sharing my passion will also ensure that I can keep building, creating and giving back.

    Love to you and your team for all you do.
    xoxo Cat

  163. As always I loved this video. I would love to go to Bschool for Christmas!! And an ipad to run my all my sales would be awesome! I love what I do and just need a little boost

  164. Angela Willis

    Hi Marie!

    What a fun video! Ever since my I was little I have known that I was suppose to be an entrepreneur, like my Dad. Working for others never felt quite right and maybe that is why you seem like such a kindred spirit. I have tried my hand at a ton of different kinds of things, mostly all creative, none that have benefited me financially (I am sad to say). I am (as my Mother would say a “Jennie of all trades and a master of none”. So, even though you suggest action to find your ‘calling’, I am not even sure what direction I would turn in order to make that move. Life is very overwhelming to me right now, and has been for some time. It doesn’t help that I need to be making money, to live, in the midst of it.

    What I would really like is to have a mentor (like you) to guide me as well as a support team; and dare I say hold my hand, so I don’t feel so alone in all this. And one day, if I ever figure myself out, and can afford it, B-school definitely sounds appealing. 😉

    Although its the day after Christmas, I hope you had a lovely day yesterday, and that the rest of your holiday is wonderful

    Thank you for all you and your team do!

  165. This was so entertaining! ha ha! Thank you Marie and Team! <3 Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday!

    What I want for the new year is to develop a power of strong will inside myself. It will help me live a more organized, and fulfilling life.

    Thank you so much for all the fun and valuable content you provide! xoxo

  166. Gosh, I just love you Marie.


    This warmed my heart so much.

    Thank you.

    My wish: to be in the best shape of my life and to become debt-free.

    It’s more of a goal than a wish, and I thank you for all of your positivity and inspiration this past year!

    Tuesdays are my favorite, because of YOU & your fabulous team.

    Thank you for always going the extra-mile.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  167. Margarita

    Dear Marie,
    I love your videos, very passionate and energy rich. You are a great inspiration! Thank you!
    I would love to know about the B-school opportunities.
    My dream is to discover my purpose in life, this unique gift you are talking about; to find or create the job I Love and I Do well).

    My warmest thoughts and best wishes for a Healthy and Joyful Holiday Season to you and your entire team!
    I wish you a wonderful New Year filled with treasured moments and great new opportunities!

    Much love, Margarita

  168. You are so fun and funny I loved how you put Santa in his place! Happy Holidays! I wish to continue to feel like I’m dialed in to the right frequency and to continue to evolve and get inspiration and give some too.

  169. Got everything I could wish for this holiday season! Well except for a Kitchen Aid mixer and iPad Air LOL

    Honestly it was so nice to take some time off of biz to spend a week with family. Our first Christmas with our granddaughter (she’s almost 2)! That was fun spoiling her quite a bit.

    I would love a new blog design for our travel blog and maybe some updates to my other blogs. B School would be on my wish list AND like a lady said above, it would be a blast to have lunch with you Marie if you’re ever in Chicagoland. My treat!

    Loved the video. Hope your Christmas was just as fun (and special) as you!

  170. Marie, it’s also the season to help those less fortunate 🙂 Our calendar supports southern Oregon non-profits who feed the hungry, fight for equality, justice, and workers rights, promote independent news, clean up our food supply, and wage peace. Please help us out.

  171. JP

    What no XMAS tweetable? I feel Scrooged. Seriously…Great high energy way to head into the end of the year.

    • JP, the line right below the YouTube video is tweetable. 🙂

  172. Wow, really. What a fabulous and fun video. You’re so creative! I totally know how Santa feels. I too am having a difficult time keeping my spirits up. New to this expert space as an etiquette coach, I am finding it very challenging. My one Christmas wish is to be able to coach just one or two influential people who will learn how beneficial and profitable learning manners is. And as they begin to master their skills and practice politeness, recommend me to others who in turn will practice politeness, we will have a kinder world. Manners are kindness in action. Thanks for reading, Santa and again, thank you!

  173. Marie: You are so awesome! Always look forward to MarieTV!

  174. Marie, is Santa your super awesome actor-fiance or some random dude trying to get the goodies?!

    Anyways, my Christmas wish is for Team Forleo to check out my website. I would have never added an email opt-in if it weren’t for MarieTV!!

  175. Hi all!
    Funny video! Didn’t get to watch it until now, but am so happy I did.

    My wish for Christmas would be to have a chance to work with Marie 1 on 1 . . . I went through B-School last round, but feel I’m lacking clarity and could SO USE her laser vision on my life!

    Going to do B-School again this next round and meditate on getting clear!!

    xoxo everyone, and Happy New Year!!

  176. What fun! Thanks for this . . . even Santa can be in a rut! What do I want?
    Hmmmm . . . Marie hair!! It is so gorgeous and while I am listening to all you have to say I can’t take my eyes of your lovely tresses. I’ve got strawberry blonde hair and wonder if I could get it to grow as long as yours. Going to take your picture into my hairdresser so she can be thinking of how to cut it. Maybe a shallow wish, but it is in earnest! Hugs, Allison

  177. Shirley-Anne Joy

    My wish for 2014 is to do B-School, have a new website, to have a TV channel On the Couch with Shirley-Anne which has 30mins of inspirational HappYness News from around the world..HappY New Year everyone!!

  178. Cute video and I loved reading the comments and what people want for 2014.
    I’ve only recently found out about Marie TV and haven’t missed an episode since then. I’ve enjoyed watching older videos. Thank you Marie and your team for inspiring me to do more and have more confidence in myself and what I can offer for the world.
    I’m blessed that 2013 was a good year for me. I started my nutrition counseling business (got gluten-free everything here in my house!). I’d like to have more clarity and become better at managing time and being more productive. I’d like to learn how to create programs (B-school: can’t wait for the details). And I’d like to enjoy the little daily joys of life with my husband and kids as time flies and they grow up and I want to enjoy the present with them.
    And it would be nice if my ankle heals so I can go back to my exercise routine.
    Love! Nour

  179. Kim

    Merry Christmas!

    I have had quite the 2013 year with a mini-retirement in Italy. I also did some soul searching & a lot of self educating throughout the year after easily quitting a non fulfilling job.

    For 2014, I am on a new path, a fresh start (in every way) and b-school is an exciting part of that. We return to the US in a few weeks and I wish for a smooth transition, a new car (we sold our house and cars before moving to Italy) & a bit of clarity for my new business.

    Happy New Year everyone!

  180. Loved the episode, Marie! As always.

    Christmas has passed, but what I want for the new year is to get my baby, the Inner Steel Technique, into as many hands and lives as possible. I’m doing my dissertation on it and doing research interviews now, and would love to shift my biz so I can sustain myself 100% on my products and Inner Steel Coaching – Confidence Coaching for Sensitive People in 2014.

    Love your work.


  181. Annika47

    My wish for Christmas is that my dear sister release her need for drugs and get the healing she needs. And for my dear nephew to have his mama back, clean and sober. Much love to you and your staff, Marie!

  182. Ooooh how cute is this clip!

    I’ve been prrrettty nice the past year so if it’s not too late, my wish would be to hang out in B-School with Marie and Santa! Please! I will bring gluten free anything as well!

    Have an awesome week everyone at MarieTV!


  183. Gayla from My Soapy Life

    My wish for this Christmas coming up would be to win a free all expenses round trip during the next BSchool, classes included of course! Hey! A woman can dream can’t she! lol Seriously though, I am a single parent and trying to start out on my on one day here and would love the chance to win such a giveaway as I could never afford it on my own. Thanks for all of the great vid’s! Love ur show! Hugs!

  184. Lori Glier

    Dear Marie!

    Merry Christmas thanks for inspiring me this year!Love you Heaps
    My wish is for CBC NBC BBC to sign me for some TV programing I have created.I hope I get the right connections and skyrocket in 2015!
    Love Lori

  185. Jen

    Hi-larious! Gotta love you some Santa! So glad you re-shared this video- I missed it last year.

    My wish for 2015 is to successfully get this ‘baby-business’ of mine running and climbing!

  186. Mar'yana

    I would like to find a job that I love and that can help me support my family .
    I would love to have a beautiful , cozy house, cottage , give big presents for close ones, be a philanthropist and serve God -our Creator.

    • Chelsea - Team Forleo

      Mar’yana, those are wonderful goals!!

  187. What is my Holiday wish?
    That the world’s tendency moves away from “I wish” and “I Want” to “I am blessed and this is enough”.
    That we see what is present instead of needing presents.
    That we give way more than we look to get.
    And…if you insist I give my wish…That I finish my book Buddha’s Bedroom – Awaken your Inner Lover – in 2017 and it becomes a best seller that helps millions of couples!
    Peace and Harmony, everyone.

  188. DR

    Hi Marie and Company!

    Thanks so much for this! However, is everything okay? This is from 2013. I know the message resonates always, but it feels…odd. You’ve given us so much, and I adore you and your team, but this is an old holiday greeting. I hope everything is fine and you’re just busy – getting ready for B-School. Stay well. These videos are always a wonderful reminder.

    • Chelsea - Team Forleo

      Hey there! Thank you so much for your comment. We’re doing beautifully, but we appreciate you checking in.

      In today’s email, we shared three links — the link to last week’s episode on reviewing this past year for end-of-year reflection, the link to this week’s brand new episode on finding meaning in life, and then lastly we also shared a link to this silly Santa MarieTV from 2013 in the PS section of our email.

      We hope you were able to catch all 3 as the other 2 may be more along the lines of what you were looking for, and we can’t wait to share more with you in the New Year!

  189. Elena

    As always- LOVE Marie Tv! You all are an inspiration and encouragement every week. For this Christmas I would love to spend some quality time with my family! Enjoy our first Christmas in the UK and in our new HOME. Merry Christmas to you all! Elena

    • Chelsea - Team Forleo

      Yay — happy new homemaking and yes, Merry Christmas, Elena!

  190. Joanne Grace Larkins

    Yes, first, Merry Christmas to you and your gang, Marie. And a most prosperous New Year to each of you, and your families.
    My biggest wish for this holiday season is to find a present for my loved ones, which will return the magic, joy and wonder that exists, especially at this time of year.
    Thank you. Off to put on my “kerchief” and to settle into a long winter nap. Heheheheee Ho Ho Ho!!!

  191. Marianne

    Um, dear Santa, dear Marie. Up in the Arctic, where I live close to you Santa, you may have noticed that the permafrost is melting with global warming. My very very old house is sinking. This is nasty. So I would love a new house on steel poles drilled way deep into the ground. And please save my American neighbors from a nasty president.

  192. Russell

    I wish I could have a whole new passion in the mind for next year. This year, it was really tough for my family and startup business. I’ve gained a lot, and closing to the end of the year, I felt pretty tired. However, I know I have to keep running over to the next year. So, please give me a whole new passion!
