Marie Forleo introduction

Hi!

I'm Marie

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

Last year I was in a restaurant, typing non-stop to finish my book manuscript when I ran into my friend Toby.

We exchanged hugs and pleasantries. Then, he asked me what I was up to.

“Oh, just getting my ass kicked by this book manuscript. That and growing my team, running the business, writing and producing my show, building our podcast, renovating a house, spending time with Josh and my family — you know, the usual.”

He responded, “Marie, why are you writing a book in the middle of all those other projects? It’s not like you need to write a book. You’re already full and doing great work. Why did you take this on?”

“Honestly,” I said, “if I got hit by a bus tomorrow, everything is figureoutable is the one idea I’d want to leave behind. It’s that one thing I know, in my heart of hearts, that can make a difference — almost beyond everything else I’ve created.”

Marie Forleo Everything Is Figureoutable

Toby got a little misty and said, “Marie, promise me you’ll put that in your book. It’s the best reason to write a book that I’ve heard in a long time.”

Creating something great takes patience and the power of your conviction in who you are and what you stand for. Click To Tweet

When I’m having a rough time or when a shitstorm comes to town, everything is figureoutable saves me. Those three simple words give me hope and strength. They calm me down. Get me clear and focused. It’s something I say to myself and others, practically every day.

But throughout this process, I’ve come to realize that everything is figureoutable is more than just a fun phrase to say. It’s a philosophy of relentless optimism. A mindset. A mantra. A conviction.

And it’s about to make you unstoppable.

Today, we’re celebrating because
Everything Is Figureoutable
is officially available for pre-order!!!
🎉🎉🎉

The book ships on September 10th, 2019, but don’t wait. Pre-order now and save your receipt. Because I’ve created a brand new immersive coaching experience that launches this fall. I’ll be teaching new material that goes even further than the book, all for FREE. That’s all I can say about this for now, but know that the *only* way to get free access is with your book pre-order receipt.

Now, here’s a special behind-the-scenes MarieTV detailing the process behind bringing this book cover design to life.  

The Design Process:
How We Made The Book Cover No One Saw Coming

Marie Forleo's Everything Is Figureoutable

Getting Everything Is Figureoutable out of my heart and onto the page was a challenging process. It involved countless late nights, early mornings and more than my fair share of frustration, stress, and self-doubt. But writing a book is only half the battle.

Designing a cover that captured the essence of my idea was another crucial step. While the actual content is the most important component, the cover is huge. For someone browsing their local book store, the book’s cover design might be the only reason they stop to pick it up.

In today’s massively saturated markets, great design is essential to any successful brand. Design imbues emotion. Good design (on books or anything else) can make you feel something. It can ignite your imagination or energetically transport you to a world of new possibilities. While we can’t always put our finger on it, great design pulls us close and makes our heart say, “Yes please!”

Whether it’s books or soup bowls, we want to be surrounded by interesting, artful objects. No one’s ever “bored” into buying.

An uninspired cover design was NOT an option.

To be honest, I was really nervous about the design of this cover. I’m used to having complete creative control over everything I do. I like it that way. My creative team is made up of magical design unicorns. Not having them fully in charge of the book cover made us anxious.

Turns out, my publisher Portfolio/Penguin Random House was nervous too. They’re a well-oiled machine and design top-selling books for a living. This is their industry. Having a strong-willed author stroll in with her own experienced crew could be a blessing, or a curse. No one knew if we were gearing up for a brilliant collaboration or a total disaster.

Design is largely subjective. And high functioning teams — no matter how accomplished on their own — don’t always work well together, despite the best intentions.

Not going to lie. It was frustrating and messy at times (as the creative process always is). Plus, we had to do the bulk of the work during an extraordinarily busy time for our company (B-School!). But both of our teams learned how to trust and lean on each other. We gave ourselves permission to play, create, and find out what we were capable of, together.

Eventually, we found our way to a few beautiful covers. Some represented tried and true examples of what performs well in the publishing world… but there was one I kept coming back to again and again, even though it was completely unconventional.

Not everyone was initially on board with this risky choice. In fact, the cover I wanted (and chose) went against some solid testing data, and the advice of a few folks on our larger team.

But the cover we chose was the only one
that gave me that full body “YES!”

A lesson I’ve learned time and time again is that you have to trust your gut, even if it goes against the grain and the advice of others. On today’s MarieTV, you’ll find out which cover we chose, and why.

You’ll hear from my legendary publisher Adrian Zackheim, Portfolio’s Art Director Chris Sergio, and some uber talented people from Team Forleo. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at what it really takes to design a book cover that represents your voice and vision.

Last but not least, you’ll get to see the final Everything Is Figureoutable book cover. It’s something we’re all extremely proud of.

  17. The frustration often happens when I’m too close to a project. I have to step away from it and see all the pieces from a “bird’s eye view” in order to get clarity on what I might be missing or how it should all come together. So excited for your book. Just pre-ordered! Congratulations on such a wonderful accomplishment! #B-School2018

  25. John Garland

    I understand completely how important your decisions are to getting your message across on a book cover. I believe mine was simpler to develop than yours in that my theme was fantasy and yours is more real. All I had to do was find that perfect match to my thinking and there you have it. I’ve found artists from all over the world to choose from within the community I belong to. I have found an artist to work with on all my books. One artist for the trilogy and an artist for each of my three poetry books.

    I love what you have in that one thing to leave behind which is truly your life in all it has to offer. Mine will be the many worlds I create as I move forward in life. My books will be my claim to fame. I’m building a world that I can share with the world that is truly me. What I now wish to do is follow your lead in making a theme for yourself. The way you see me now is nothing compared to the way you’ll soon see me. By then I’ll know what theme that’ll be. It’s beyond your wildest dream. I’ll give you a cordial invite when its put together. Who knows, you’ll be able to open some doors for the world to see. It’ll be like an oasis in a world of sand.

    I am best described as a soul who is of a sound mind, stuck within an unsound world, marked by the “gods” of society, to be labeled insane. What say you should be my theme?

  26. Marieeee and Team Forleo and Random,

    BRILLIANT!!!

    The typo, the colours, the stance, the charisma, the outfit, the spacing, the everything! And the colours of the orange-radio, was that on purpose, or ‘co-incidence’ because it’s complementary to blue?

    At first I thought, oh, she probably is showing her Mama’s Orange-Radio and then thought ‘nooo, it HAS to be a photo of Marie’s Super Soul Sunday speech at Oprah’s, because that’s directly linked with Everything is Figureoutable (hope the book has a link or photo-link inside to that talk? And that you later (or now) also put a link to the video? Cross-reference, babers).

    But – WOW!! – the cover you went with is PERFECT!! (Did I mention ‘perfect’ 😀 :D)

    I am co-excited! LOL

    You look gorgeous, self-confident, and as powerful as Oprah or Michelle O.
    Love the typo and how your eyes are free and the figureoutable doesn’t have a hyphen to insist that it’s one word. We all know it is, and the readers who don’t, will too.
    Congratulations to ALL of you guys for your heart work, your persistence, and your openness to collaborate and allow other creative voices to blend into yours to make the outcome even better.
    Oh wait, that’s right: Everything is figureoutable!! Haha.
    I celebrate You Marie, and each of you Sweetnesses as well!!
    Hugs and big smiles,
    Tanya xx
    🙂 xxxxxxxx Happy dance!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Thank you SO much for your excitement and continued support, Tanya – we simply adore you and are so very grateful to have you in this community. It’s a dream to share this book with you – happy dance indeed! XOXO

  27. Thank you Marie for this synchronous piece of inspiration. I was feeling a little down in myself today about where to focus my efforts with my business and attract more clients, but seeing how much time and effort your team put into getting this right has made me realise I am still at the start of my journey and need to be patient and stay focussed on my goal of bringing creativity and fun into making work healthier. Looking forward to reading the book. Thankyou for all you do to help so many people.

    • Hi Ann, Love,
      I can so relate to that – and to remember that it’s a marathon, not a sprint, and we’re building for lasting success, for the long-term, and adjust along the way.
      I am cheering you on! You’re doing it, that’s 100% MORE than those who don’t – and pacing yourself is your divine duty, so you can outlast the eager hare who exhausts himself so much that he doesn’t make it to that ‘finish line’.
      … but there is no finish line, because it keeps going. Just when we think, we’re ‘there’, another layer opens up that we weren’t ready for as the old version of ourselves.
      I celebrate You!!
      Big smiles,
      Tanya x
      🙂
      PS Sometimes our projects and business – and we! – just need a pause to marinate and mature it, and then it continues. You’ve got this!

  28. Carnen

    You are always straight up, transparent, optimistic, and giving. This look behind the scenes is what we all needed to see. .. i imagine your Karma and Dharma angels are sayin, “YES Sis you’re making this lifetime your absolute most”
    Thank you Ms Marie
    CHEERS
    Carnen Mitzi😘

  29. Ula

    Tears in my eyes! CONGRATULATIONS!!! The most amazing book cover, ever! I felt shivers all over my body when the book cover finally appeared. I’m in love, as always with anything your produce.

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Aww, Ula! Thank you! We’re SO glad you love it.

  30. Zoe

    Love the cover, I can’t wait to read it!
    Pre-ordered 🎉🎉

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      YAS Zoe! We can’t wait for you to read it, either. Remember to save your receipt so you get free access to the immersion course!

  31. PS I didn’t mean a link ‘to’ the video, but a ‘link to the book under (!) the Super Soul Sunday video, if you feel to!
    Also, the colours wam bright yellow and orange on that lively blue stand out much more, compared to the black outfit of your talk onstage at Oprah’s (even though it was and is glorious!). I can already see all kinds of merch in your happy stylish cover colours. Have you thought about creating a one of ‘magazine version’ of the ‘book and cover journey’? Could be a great bonus, too. Then we all would be able to see snippets of your photo shoot with all the different garments and the brainstorming and what it takes, kinda like a printed documentary of ‘the making of’. Ah, sorry, can’t help it, I’m an ideagenerator, it just happens.

    Absolutely divinely inspired. ALL of it! Thanks for pulling through, for all of us. Which motivates me to keep it up as well. Hugs xxxxxxxx

  32. Ann

    Hi Marie – this is a great cover! A great play on words and simply orchestrated – and of course you look absolutely wonderful! I am a graphic designer (although I work as an administrator because there’s not a lot of respect for graphic designers where I live!) – and I have written and designed some picture books, with a unique style of artwork. I have trialed my stories on a lot of families and they love my books and the design, but the only people who don’t like them are publishers! It’s very disheartening. Over a period of 5 years I was promised by about 5 publishers that they wanted to take my books but always (after waiting months), they would decide against taking them because they are a bit ‘different’ in that they subtley promote self esteem in children and deal with their little anxieties in a fun and colourful way. I didn’t even mind if the publishers changed the artwork! So I feel completely and utterly demotivated to continue with trying to find a publisher because I think most of the world’s publishers in this genre, have rejected me! I’m not very good with social media so I don’t pursue this very much. But I know my product is good and I have the backing of a great many graphic designers, and if they saw something they didn’t like, they would tell me! It makes me feel not good enough and bad about myself but I need to read some of your encouraging words if I am ever to succeed – although it’s going to take a lot of reading! Thanks for your time and energy Marie. I think I might even buy your new book – is it on Amazon? Ann xx

    • Hi Ann, isn’t it interesting, how very much we’re impacted by the people and society around us in what we believe is or isn’t possible? May I reflect this one sentence back to you that really stood out when I was reading about your talent and passion as a graphic designer?
      _____________
      I am a graphic designer (although I work as an administrator because there’s not a lot of respect for graphic designers where I live!) – and I have written and designed some picture books, with a unique style of artwork.
      ______________
      Could it be that it’s time to move out of that past collective mindset that ‘there’s not a lot of respect for graphic designers where I live’? If that’s so ingrained then might it be possible that that’s what you subconsciously expect – and therefore create – in your life, including rather working as an administrator because ‘graphic designers aren’t respected’?
      It feels like in your passionate streaming FOUNTAIN of creativity, this might be THE filter that distorts the output and income?
      Just being a believing mirror here – and I hope that’s ok? If not, just dismiss what I said.
      With so much love and a big smile,
      Tanya xx

      • Ann

        Hi Tanya Those are very perceptive comments and I welcome them. I never looked on life as a marathon before – I am always screaming inside to get to where I want to be but barely seem to be moving!! I do think the society around me has drained my soul a bit and I seem to have lost my passion for a lot of things so I know a move is on the cards. I am trying to arrange this, and have been trying to do so over the last couple of years, but finances keep getting in the way – however, I know that that’s no excuse – you see I am feeling the influence of Marie Foleo already! It’s a question of getting my belief system on track I guess and I think discovering Marie Foleo recently, is starting to inspire me. I hope I can follow the way to success although something inside me says it’s not possible – I know this has to change. I hope that because I try so hard to follow my path, that good things will happen if I can go with the marathon idea rather than running around in circles. I am going to read Marie’s new book because I am looking for, and need, inspiration and guidance. Thank you for your time – it makes me feel as if support is always there.

Congratulations on this accomplishment & gift to the world. “Everything is figureoutable,” as a mentality has already done wonders for me. 🙏 Can’t wait to read!! xo

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Lacy, thank you SO much! This means the world coming from you. We’re so touched to know how this mentality has been serving you and cannot wait for you to read the book!! xoxo

  37. Thank you. I loved seeing and hearing the team. The cover is glorious. Congratulations, everyone, again.
    In answer to your first question – Have you ever felt frustrated or anxious in the middle of a creative process? – Yes, with every book due to self-doubt about the writing, and not wanting to upset people with the cover designs.
    In answer to your second question – How did you find your way through and make the tough calls? – you asked for as much detail so it can help others so here goes ….
    With the writing sometimes I have had to walk away from a project to have some distance and objectivtiy because it is my self-doubt wall stopping the flow of answers rushiing in.
    Like every book, I stretched myself to go beyond what my saboteur self believed I could do with ‘Snuggle With The Strange: 9 Twisted Tales’ – my latest book. After writing, rewriting, editing, sending it off to my editor, making the changes and believing I had done all I could – and feeling like I might disintegrate into a puddle of exhaustion – I thought I was sending it off to get the thumbs up.
    However, she still had questions about one story, and she loved the start so much that she pushed me asking questions I didn’t know how to solve. My first exhausted reaction was, ‘Noooo. How can you expect me to even have a drop more juice in my ability tank to do a single thing more?’ So I had a little exhausted cry on my own. And then I asked my subconscious to show me the answers and left it for a few days so my subconscious could do it’s magic and I could come back more objectively.
    Due to lots of self-work over recent years especially, I started to hear a determined, ‘You can do this’ in my head and realized my fist was punching the air. To stop my saboteur worrying I would spoil the whole story, I copied it into a new document so I was free to throw it all away, change it hugely, and still have the latest version safe. It gave me space to go wild and and remind myself, ‘Of course you can do this. You got through the Darcy book If you can get through the pain and hell of that – and you totally couldn’t see how at many points on the journey – you can do this. You’ve already proved it. This “I can’t” self-talk is just reminding you of other people’s words you’ve stored. They’re not yours. It’s not what your younger self knows.’
    So I did it and sent it back to my editor who was blown away by what I had changed it into. I cried again – with relief.
    The other creative process that has had me anxious is the cover design of the books. My illustrator and designers are lovely and welcome feedback and tell me it is about collaboration and getting it right and tweaking and changing. However, I have found it way too uncomfortable for a few reasons. Firstly, because I believed that I am not a designer and so I have no way of explaining what I want. I just know when something is not right yet I don’t know what that ‘not right’ is and therefore would rather not say. Secondly, they put in so much work I haven’t wanted to be disrespectful or hurt their feelings and admit I don’t like something.
    Luckily – I am so blessed – they have coaxed me and encouraged me telling me repeatedly that they need to know so they can make the books the best. They have had infinite patience while I have stepped into this hugely vulnerable area for me. They’ve given me dot to dot feedback like, ‘Ooh, when you give facts like that it really helps’. I’m in a wonderful position where I get to be able to choose the covers and say what ideas I have and work with an amazing gentle team. Yes, I do find it a bit exhausting going back and forth looking at multiple designs and artwork, being asked what font I prefer and sometimes getting a bit dazed when looking at so many mock-ups where some can all start to look the same just a slightly different font size or thickness.
    Yet the joy is with my latest book, their coaching and guidance over the years has led me to be able to say from the outset how I see the cover, to be able to say at different stages, ‘I want the colour of that aspect to be richer.’ or ‘I’m not happy with that part because …’ The fear and vulnerability is still there yet I am getting braver. And when I mentioned to the illustrator, ‘I know this may sound a bit twee yet I think it would look really good if the woman reading on the sofa is actually reading the book so instead of a blue book, she is part of the cover artwork and she is reading the scary stories that she is a part of.’ And the sweet joy of throwing yourself out there and being brave? My illustrator had had the exact same idea and didn’t know if I would think it was too much. Woohoo. It looks fantastic.

    Hey Marie ! Love the vibrant colours of your cover ! It does the trick indeed ! Really makes me want to read your book knowing that everything is figureoutable now ! Yehaaa ! Thanks for showing us the creative and inspiring behind the scene make of. All my love from sunny Belgium

  39. More than the cover, which is gorgeous, I love the ENERGY that comes out of this book even before I have it on my hands.

    It all sings “PERSEVERANCE” and “RESOURCEFULNESS” into my ears, two values I hold dear to my heart.

    Challenges and obstacles will always be there – it´s part of life´s dynamics. Tackling those unpleasant spots on the road with grace, a positive attitude, and creativity is The Art.

    I´m super excited for Marie and her new book. Pre-ordering it today.

    Go, Marie, go!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      YES, Joana! You’re exactly right. Thank you so much for all your kind words – we’re thrilled that the book is speaking to your heart! We cannot wait for you to have your own copy. Remember to save your receipt, so you’ll also get free access to the coaching experience coming up in the fall 🙂

  40. Donna Dunn

    I love the cover! Bright, beautiful, sassy and confidence! Those are the words that come to mind when I look at the cover. I loved learning the process of how the cover came to be. Congratulations!! Well done!

  41. Hey Team Forleo! Awesome episode, and gorgeous cover!!

    Will the book be hitting amazon.ca or Indigo in Canada for pre-order sometime soon? I can see the Kindle and audio versions, but not the hardcover. Please don’t forget your peeps to the north!

    xoxo

  42. Love It Marie ! I will Pre order it ! I love your work, I love your style.
    I love the title “Everything Is Figureoutable !”
    And I love how you made this happen again. You are a great inspiration to me ! Love, Livia !

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Aw, Livia, we’re so happy Marie’s work is inspiring for you. We can’t wait to share the book with you! XOXO

  43. Yaaaaaaaaaas!!!! Congratulations Marie + Team! Got my pre-order already locked!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Amazing, Vannesia! SO excited for you to get your copy. Don’t forget to save your receipt so you’ll get all the free goodies coming up in the fall for pre-ordering!

  44. Nola Snyder

    Who of us has not stopped shy of a goal?
    Been ready to birth a beautiful something, a gift, a skill ,a service whatever and run into what feels like a huge boulder in our path? Those few words , Everything is Figureoutable , is a reboot for the exasperated mind. I can only imagine the many more wise words Marie , that you poured into this book so we all move boulders.
    ps just started Copy Cure ….love it!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Exactly, Nola. This book is certainly needed and it’s packed full of wisdom and motivation to KEEP GOING! We’re so grateful to have you in our world and love knowing that you’re enjoying The Copy Cure. Happy writing 🙂

  45. Congratulations, Marie. Your heart and your honesty are always visible. When all the different outfits were shown in the video, I actually thought “THAT’S the ONE when the orange and yellow one came on. The energy you give is constant but I also love the shots where you are working and writing when you may have been wiped out. (Past live videos) Because THAT hard work is the example that should be shown to inspire those of us who have had the seed waiting to take root. Dig and get dirty, water and get wet, prune and use those muscles, pray for growth and give gratitude when the miracles happen. All my love to you and your team.

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      So beautifully said, Lea! YES – here’s to getting dirty, digging in and doing the hard work of growing something miraculous and new. Thank you for being here and showing your support! We’re cheering you on as you tend your own seeds 🙂

  46. Hi Marie and Teams 😀

    So, after watching the video again and seeing the colours of all the outfits, I can see that the colours of the outfit that represented you the most, also represents colours that not only represent your Mama’s Orange-Radio, but could even be a symbol and giveaway for your own generation of little Orange-Radio with Everything is Figureoutable launch party or book signing or incentives or bonus or wins. That story you told on Oprah about your Mama doing all these cool things around the house by herself because ‘everything is figureoutable’ is so woven into that principle that it all works hand in hand… at least in my mind.
    Who says you can’t have your own little Orange-Radio made in alignment with the book, tuned to MarieTV and podcasts and all your good messages, by example.
    This way, you’d be passing on your Mama’s legacy on so many levels. Who knows, perhaps in future many little girls, boys, or wherever on the spectrum precious kids feel to be, may come home to find their parent figuring stuffs out and loving your radio as much as your message.
    Everything is figureoutable.
    Happy Orange-Radio with Yellow Lemons and Sunbeams,
    Big smiles,
    Tanya xx
    😀

  47. Congratulations and great job on the cover Marie and Team. Beautiful and powerful indeed, Marie, and the cover too 🙂 Love the colors, the outfit, the freshness, the powerful pose and the title of course.
    I just pre-ordered from Germany… Just out of curiosity, is the bonus also valid for me as “international pre-order”? Or is it only for people who can physically be present to the live coaching experience?
    Can’t wait to get my copy in September anyway and will continue to support your work.
    With Love and Gratitude for all you do.

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Hi Ines! Thank you SO much – we’re thrilled you love it. And hooray – your copy is on its way to you in September! We really can’t wait for the book to be in your hands. The bonus for pre-ordering is absolutely available internationally, as long as you’ve saved your receipt for proof of early purchase. The coaching experience is online, so it isn’t an in-person event – we can’t wait to share it with you!

      • Thanks for your reply Julia, I understand. Looking forward to it!

  48. wow!! I am so hooked on you girl! and so happy that I found B-School and Marie TV as you are non stop inspirational in my life. This video of how the cover was decided is just ANOTHER example of what and how you and your team show up! Thank you….I am grateful.

  49. Lisa De Nicola

    So exciting Marie!! Perfect choice on the cover, they’re your words and your mantra, makes sense it would be YOU looking fab on the cover 😉
    What an amazing accomplishment, you should be proud! Looking forward to when it comes out 🙂

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much, Lisa! Your words mean more than you know. We can’t wait for you to read it!

  50. Dear, Marie!

    I am in tears! I am so excited for you and the entire team; I can’t wait to have this book in my hands.

    Felicidades!

    Xo,

    Gloria

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Aww, Gloria! We’re so happy you’re as excited as we are. We can’t WAIT for it to be in your hands, too! xoxo

  51. Ha ha listened to less than 3 minutes of story. And heard enough. If one has trouble thinking up new concepts, work arounds, etc. Get a diverse group together, no one judges other people, and have one person try to keep up writing down the flow of ideas!

  52. Melissa

    I just ordered it and can’t wait to read it !!!!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      YAY, Melissa! You’re going to LOVE it. Can’t wait for you to read! 🙂 P.S. Remember to save. your. receipt!

  53. Sara Williams

    Can’t wait!! Love the cover!

  54. Kris

    This cover puts zing in my gut! It’s absolutely gorgeous!! A huge congrats!

  55. Hi Marie and Team(s),
    As I was diving back into my video, I saw THIS one on the side:
    https://youtu.be/KHryCj6F9TI your video of ‘She’s the first’ with you as a mentor. It also speaks about Everything is figureoutable, so perhaps an additional idea to go back and add the link to the book under the video (and all other related videos for that matter)?
    Just food for thought,
    big smiles,
    Tanya xx
    🙂
    PS Even old videos are new, since YouTube isn’t linear when it comes to watching videos. People will always come to ‘their video’ at the perfect-for-them time, so updating in this way might be a good idea?

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      You’re an amazing idea machine, Tanya! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness in sharing these great ideas with us. We’re so grateful for you! xoxo

  56. Dea

    What an insightful post and video. The part where you talk about listening to your gut and how your body responds to something is so powerful. So much of my life is dedicated to hearing and feeling that voice more clearly now. It’s a game and life changer. I’m a B School alumn who just built her website with a brilliant designer and marketer, and there were distinct moments throughout the process where I was told something made more sense for the client, but my gut was going a different way. The more I’d fight it the louder the discomfort. But when I leaned into that voice, even if it went against solid advice, it felt like relief (not to be confused with your ego wanting to call the shots on everything – that feels like a disaster when you lean into it). And that’s what I did! Absolute game changer.

    I love this cover, Marie. It jumps out at you, it looks and feels like you and I’m not surprised your gut told you “THIS one!”. Forever learning from you. You and your process are a definite yes for me all day every day. Much love ♥️

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Dea, we’re so glad this resonated with you and your own creative process! It sounds like you’re doing an awesome job of leaning into and listening to your intuition more and more often. We’re so proud of you and are excited to see all you’re creating! Thank you for being such an amazing, supportive part of our community. Big Team Forleo love to you! XO

  57. I love it!!!! <3 <3 <3

    I was so excited to see Chris Sergio's face up there — I know Chris Sergio and his work — he's a phenomenal art director and designer! What a team you had!! 😀

  58. Congratulations on the book, Marie! I love the cover! I heard you talk about this concept, that everything is figureoutable, awhile ago. It has helped me build a website (as a non-techy) & push through many challenges to launch my blogging business. Thank you for who you are & what you do. You inspire me!!!!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      GO, Robin, go! We love hearing how Everything is Figureoutable has helped you move through different challenges in your business. Keep up the amazing work!

  59. Love the cover, Marie! Your instinct was right on point. Can’t wait for September. Congratulations to you and the entire MF Team.

    I absolutely love the cover! So bold and powerful. And the message is one we all need. Can’t wait to read it!

  61. Love the book cover. Really interesting to see the process. and the team behind it. I am writing a book at the moment and not yet at cover stage but this has been an inspiration to keep going and getting my message out to the world.

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      We’re glad you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the process, Daniel! Wishing you all the best with your book as you share your message with the world 🙂

  62. Ever since I heard Marie tell the story of “Everything is Figuroutable,”, it has become foundational in my philosophy of life — and it truly has made me unstoppable!
    My pre-order is already in, and I can’t wait not only to read the book but take part in whatever amazing program Marie is building around the launch.

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Wonderful, Helen! You ARE unstoppable. We love knowing how this philosophy has served you already, and can’t wait for you to dive into the book and coaching experience this fall. Remember to save your receipt so you get free access!

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS to this cover! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS to this book! I’ve pre-ordered, and absolutely cannot wait to read it, over and over again! I realized, the first time that I heard you speak this mantra, that it had been mine for my whole life. But, without your unique passion and energy, I would never have found the words. Thank you for all you do for us, Marie!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      YESSSSSS to all of this, Alexis! It makes us so happy. You’re going to LOVE the book. Can’t wait for you to have it. Save your receipt for all the free goodness that comes along with pre-ordering, too!

  67. I had already written 8 technical books on Feng Shui. These were manuals, “how to” books, but I wanted to write an emotional book. A book that would touch people’s hearts and help them understand the importance of having a home environment that supports them, their famillies and all their goals. To do this I decided to write a book called “Room by Room – Feng Shui Secrets to a Happy Life” that would go over every room in the home by sharing stories of three homes and four generations. The three homes were my grandma’s, my parents and our current home. The four generations the same plus our children. Because a lot of abuse happened in my parents’ home, I found myself paralyzed facing the blank page on the computer screen. This was so hard to write that I finally got tiny beautiful note pads that were so small that they could only hole one paragraph. I wrote by hand, one paragraph or one sentence at a time, collecting tiny notepads in a bag. That’s how the book had written. It became a best-seller on Amazon in the first 12 hours and stayed there for several weeks. The most surprising thing was the feedback I got. People were learning more Feng Shui out of this book of stories (hardly any pictures at all) than they had reported learning from my manuals full of instructional images. 😊 For my cover, I painted an image of a traditional front door with ideal Feng Shui.

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      This is AMAZING, Moni! Thank you so much for sharing your writing journey with us. How powerful that your family’s stories weaved together with Feng Shui created such a great response. We’re cheering you on big time over here – congrats on sharing your work with the world in such a unique, impactful way!

  68. I love it.

    Ordering it.

    Cannot wait to read it.

    … and P.S. thank you.

    • Thank YOU, Kirsten!! We cannot wait for you to read it either. Save your receipt for the excitement coming this fall!

  69. Ali

    Marie & Team Forleo–

    This cover photo is THE human embodiment of that perfectly tuned Tropicana radio blasting DRIZZY!

    I can’t WAIT to read it!

    • HAHA! Ali, you’re SO RIGHT!! That’s amazing.

      We can’t wait for you to read it either and thank you for being in this moment with us.

  70. Nan

    Just pre-ordered the book and so excited to get it! Your energy and positivity is SO inspiring!

    I am 63 and only recently learned some life-changing truths: what you focus on expands; the power of gratitude; how meditation can improve your life; how developing some positive routines and habits can bring huge, positive changes; and how there really are no rules to bind us…only the ones we put on ourselves…and we get to choose what we do and how we do it.

    On one of your MarieTV episodes you interviewed Catherine F. Collautte, Ph.D. and she said one tiny phrase that hit me like an explosion going off in my head. She said, “Failure is just a try that didn’t work.” Boy – – that has made a huge difference to my whole mental attitude and approach to life. And your idea that Everything is Figureoutable goes hand-in-hand with that.

    I love it! I am happier than I’ve ever been in my life and am excited and energized to discover what I can do during the rest of my life. So I just want to thank you for shining your light for all of us to learn and grow! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

  71. Penny

    I LOVE they cover you chose, its you!!! Your mantra, your words you could not have chosen a better cover!!! You are such an inspiration, thank you Marie!! Cant wait to read the book!

  72. Jessica

    OMG OMG OMG!!!
    I have been waiting for this book! Cannot wait to have it in my hands!!!
    I’ve already pre-ordered!!! Yayayayay!
    *cartwheelin’ over here*

  73. Amazing and inspiring!
    Thank you for being you.

    All the best.
    Stacy

  74. Ms Forleo. That would be an euphemism to say that I love you. You are such an incredible woman and to discover you (and your team) last year gave me motivation to stick to who I am, with my different and many colors.

    I love the cover of your book. Simple and so efficient ! I especially love the determination in your look. Thank you for giving us hope and ways to be/to show who we really are without shame.

    About your questions in today’s email, I do feel frustrated in creative processes. Argh 🙁 But depending on the times, I try to force it a bit, I try to beat the procrastination but there are days when I just don’t feel like working on a specific project so I work on another one. Or I dance/repeat my choreos – I’m also Zumba teacher – or listen to Marc Anthony ^^ The two things always bring my joy back. Ah ah. Sometimes, I simply accept that I’m stuck and do something else not business-related (watch a series, go for a walk, fold laundry, cook) and eventually, the ideas will come when I won’t expect them like a huge wave. And some other times, when I’m stuck with my book – I’m writing a novel – after days maybe weeks, I think of how I can simplify the problematic part (and why I even made it so complicated) and after, it’s like I removed a huge weight from my chest.

    I hate being frustrated and well, I think nobody likes it ^^ but frustration WILL happen at some point of our creative projects so now I just accept that it’s part of the process and I learn to resist less and less. I’m learning how to accept it, to “live” it, to digest it – this is the faster way for me to get back on my feet.

    Again thank you soooooo much for your beautiful work, to you all Team Forleo.

    Take care xx

  75. I can’t recall another time I’ve been THIS excited to get a book in my hands; you’ve shared so much of the process that your victory in bringing this beautiful child into the world feels like one for all of us. I’m in my own “messy middle” of running a business, preparing to take some big and meaningful leaps this year and knowing that I’ll have this book to delve into is almost like knowing there’s a supportive hand to grab onto. Truly can’t wait!

  76. Love the cover! Strong, powerful – inspiring – BADASS!

  77. I rarely preorder books but I cannot wait to get a copy of this book and I need a hard copy after seeing the cover design! Thank you for writing this! B school was my first online course purchase and it sparked a whole new world for me in the best way!

  78. Love the cover!!! Preordered and can’t wait to get in!!

  79. Dawn Engler

    Full body YES to the pre-order! The cover is 100% Marie and her message. Love, love, love

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Yayyy! Thank you so much, Dawn 🙂

  80. THE perfect cover image!!! Always go with a full body “YES” and thank you Forleo daily inspiration 🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼

  81. Amy

    Thank you for sharing the process with us! As a solo entrepreneur (for now) I sometimes doubt all the conversations I have in my head. Knowing that you all also struggle with finding just the right _______ (cover in this case) gives me hope!

  82. Can’t wait!
    Writing my own book, this is my inspiration.
    My home.
    Thank you, Marie!!

  83. Hi! I love your new cover! I am so glad you shared about the process, thank you. I am wondering if you could give a little more insights some day about the artistic reasons for this cover – for example, I see the blue/orange color contrast and the curves of Marie’s stance are artistically pleasing and eye catching. I want to know more about how you came to this, the last little choices. I just find it so interesting. I loved seeing all of the choices in the process.

    It’s clear this photo was not an accidental find! Were you instantly drawn to this outfit and pose? Were there more poses you were choosing between? I’d like to know if your gut instinct was IMMEDIATE or if there was some breaking down first (Ex: did you start with liking the colors, then chose a pose… or was this exact pose/color combo the first thing that grabbed your gut instinct?) What exactly were the “professionals” saying was wrong with this cover? Why is it so unconventional? And how did you stand up to it? (For example: Was there an artistic reason, or was it just an “I love it” kind of thing?).

    I love this as an example of how you followed your gut instincts, and I wanted to know if you’d be open to sharing wheter this was an immediate “YES” or if there were just small yeses that brought you to the big yes. I hope you understand what I am asking 🙂 As an artist, I find this process interesting. I sometimes have a hard time following my gut, so I wanted to hear how your experience was in this, since it is an actual piece of work that is forever on the cover of your book as a true piece of art. Thank you so much I appreciate your answers!

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for watching and for sharing your thoughts, Mara! Although I’m not sure how all the decisions were made beyond what was shared in this video, Marie is such a big fan of trusting your intuition. There were tons of design ideas, and of the photos in the photoshoot, this one was the one that really stood out!

      While I was reading your comment one of our previous MarieTV episodes popped to mind that talks all about honing in your intuition, so I thought I might pass that one along to help sharpen your “trusting your gut” skills: http://www.marieforleo.com/2014/07/intuition/ – I hope you enjoy!

      • Mara

        Thanks so so much!

  84. Nadine

    Awwwww, I love the book cover, the whole story behind and I am so excited about your book, Marie. Unfortunately I cannot pre-order your audiobook at Amazon Germany yet but I guess soon as well. Pre-ordered your book. 🙂
    Sometimes I find it amazing how things solve by a strong will of finding a solution. Yesterday my mom got the diagnosis of skin cancer, delivered very insensitively by her doctor. Giving her only 2 quick options in a rush.
    When she told me later I immediately decided a new doctor needed to be found. Entering the Internet, finding a doctor close to her home, called, nice assistant on the phone, got appointment for today, my mom went there and that doctor even talked to me via phone because I live far away. Anyhow, all will be solved in a much better way, my mom feels comfortable and it is figureoutable with much more care and love. I am so happy for her! <3

    • Marie

      Hi Nadine, I’m so very sorry to hear about your mom. How frightening. I love how you stepped in to find a doctor with more heart, compassion and care to support your mom on her healing journey. We are sending you and her an enormous hug and SO much love XOO M.

  85. I’ve been looking forward to this book for years – the cover is incredible, and I’m sure that message of the book will change so many lives!

    Excited and congrats to you Marie and the entire team!

    • Marie

      Nathalie!! I love you more than words can say. Thank you SO MUCH for this comment and your heart, smarts and support over all.these.damn.years. Sending you and your beautiful family SO MUCH LOVE!!! xoxo

    Absolutely love everything you do! Pre-ordered my copy and can’t wait to have it signed at one of the book signings (I hope) … yay!

  88. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!! I look forward to September and beyond. And thank you Marie. Thank you for being an incredible teacher, mentor, role model. My publisher asked me for a second book, fifteen years after my first and it was published last August. I created a companion online program, and audiobook and am still being invited to events and on podcasts. Being in your program these last four years has been my guide. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

  89. Amy

    Love the cover!! Pre-order…done!!! Cant wait to read it!!!
    Yeah Marie!!!💕🎉🍾🥂
    Amy

  90. Totally LOVED hearing-watching this story!
    Did you all realize that you chose a cover aligned with the chakra colors?! 2nd, 3rd, 4thand 5th.
    Orange for relationship, creativity, desire.
    Yellow for the sacral of personal power and professional success.
    Pink for the heart – yes I know most say green but in practice we tend to use pink for heart and love.
    And BLUE for the throat chakra for listening and communicating.

    So aligned. Love it.!
    Congrats to everyone!

    • Marie

      LOVE this Judith! Thank you for sharing all of this beautiful color wisdom!!

  91. Y E S ! ! ! ! !
    Beautiful cover! It feels like a calm exclamation mark. You know, like – “Well, of course.” CONGRATULATIONS!!! What a team you have to work and play with. Love it.
    Mary

  92. Monique

    While watching this video and when I saw the yellow and orange outfit I thought, “this should be on the cover”. Why? It is what I perceive of Marie and her team, alive, joyful, honestly powerful and intelligently self put in order to radiate love in others.

    In writing these words, I thought of a little girl who, once (about 5 years), was holding a blue and yellow smoking pipe in her right hand, the same yellow as the sweater, after being hit by a car . It was the day that I lost the joy in me … for find it again several years later. Yellow is definitely the meaning of joy!

    So yes, this cover is the perfect fit to ” Everything Is Figureoutable”. Well done!

  93. Virginia Johnson

    I LOVE this cover🔥!!! You and the team knocked this out the ballpark, cannot wait til it’s here🎉.

  97. Lorna

    Congratulations on what sounds to be a birthing of love and wisdom that will make a huge contribution to this planet at this critical time in history!
    I am very interested in pre-ordering your new book but have a question concerning international availability. I live in Canada and was wondering if the coaching offer will also be available for Canadians and for that matter other international readers?

    • Marie

      Lorna!! YES – the immersion course will be online and all international pre-orders will count 🙂

  98. Yayy! So exciting Marie XO

  99. Sarah

    The book cover is GREAT and it would never have worked without your beautiful and sassy photo! I love that you and your creative team worked up so many versions of possible covers so that you knew what was an absolute “NO” and were on your way to some real “YESS”s, so by the time you came to the table you all were clear and less apt to be influenced/ pushed around by the publishing norms. Love the introduction of the vision board to the negotiations. Brilliant! And, of course I pre-ordered the book. Can’t wait! I have to say, too, that I loved the Tropicana Orange image you had on your Instagram. Kind of an inside joke, but hilarious if you’ve heard your story.

    • Marie

      You know it Sarah 🍊🍊🍊

  100. Valentine

    I love this story and I LOVE that you chose the Tropicana Orange colors for your cover!

  101. Ooooooh! I can’t wait for this book! I love the phrase and can’t wait to read. And the bonus? Guuuuurl….that’s just the bomb. Thank you!

    • Marie

      Ha! We are SO DAMN excited about the whole thing Karen! The book, the tour (dates and location TBD) AND the immersion course in the fall!! 🎉

  102. Pam S

    I pre-ordered the Audible copy of the book about a week ago. Does this count towards the training? Excited to hear Marie share her story!!

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      Hi Pam! So excited you’ve ordered your Audible copy! Absolutely, you’ll just need to provide a screenshot or copy of your receipt of purchase in order to get free access to the coaching experience in the fall 🙂

      • Pam S

        Awesome! And thank you for your quick reply.

  103. Lori H.

    Perfect.
    Expresses vibrant enthusiasm, unstoppable mindset, energetic creativity, and owning your power. Wow.

  104. GO MARIE!!!!!!!!!!

  105. WOW! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! YAY! Super excited. Huge congrats Marie & Team.

  106. Irina

    Not gonna lie – I got teary when I saw the cover. It’s perfect 😂

    • Marie

      Oh Irina! We did TOO!!! Is that weird?!?! HA. Thank you!💗

  107. So excited for you and the book Marie! I must say while watching the video, my thoughts were so simple. I kept thinking “why don’t they just have her on the cover with the title around her?” That’s exactly what happened! I have some abilities, hehe! All are such creative ideas with a team behind you but it seemed so complicated to my thoughts. The cover is so simple and yet says it all, truly Marie! As an author myself, I went with my ideas for my cover and have no regrets. Everything is indeed figureoutable!

  108. Christina

    Hi Marie! I’m so excited, and I cannot wait to read your new book!!! Your last one is one of my favorite books ever and I still keep it in my night stand. I like to pick it up every once in a while when I need guidance on just about anything. The mantra “everything is figureoutable” helps me get through just about every obstacle I run into. The phrase itself is very powerful. I can only imagine what a book dedicated to this mindset will uncover. You are indeed the friend I turn to when I get stuck and need inspiration. A thousand thank you’s to you 🤗

    • Marie

      All the 😭 😭😭 Christina!! THANK YOU XOOX

  109. This is so exciting, I can’t wait to get my pre-order and be part of the workshop in the fall.

    When I am feeling frustrated or anxious, mostly because I think I am not doing “enough”, I remind myself that each and every action I take contributes in some way to the bigger picture. I may not know how immediately but every thing I do is valuable.

    So when I am feeling badly about cleaning, or taking time for self-care or spending time with my family when “there is so much to do”, I gently give myself the grace to accept that those things are equally important.

    The cover is great. Can’t wait to read it. 🙂

  110. Olathe Sherman

    The cover! I love it! It’s the way it should be! So excited to read the book! I pre-ordered mine. So much love to you and your team!

  111. Kathy Koenig

    OMG! This cover is magnetic and I am pulled in! I love, love the color and the energy it expresses. I am so glad you listened to your gut, your team’s gut(s), and brought forth the winning photos. I’ve pre-ordered and cannot wait until September. I am thrilled that Marie is on the cover because every time I pick up this book I know she’s going to be right there with me. Together it’s all figureoutable. I think autocorrect is going to fill in the blanks before long! Thanks Marie and Team Forleo for all you bring to the world and helping the rest of us do so too.

    • Marie

      Thank you for your heartfelt words, Kathy!!!! 🙂

  112. I am at the start of building my dream and I go through ebbs and flows of feeling like “You got this!” to feeling like it is never going to happen. Remembering that patience is required is the most important thing for me.

  113. As soon as I saw that Tropicana Orange pop up on Instagram…I knew it! FAN-EFFING-TASTIC that this book will soon be out in the world! I got it on pre-0rder and am waiting “patiently” for it to arrive on my Kindle Reader. I have adopted “Everything is figureoutable.” as my personal mantra and have even taught it to my two teenagers (who need it more than you know). Bless you and bless the work you’ve been doing. Keep on rocking it, girl! XOXOXO

    • Marie

      Love that you shared this with your kids Dana! And THANK YOU for pre-ordering. Save that receipt for more magic in the fall XOOX M.

  114. just love it Marie!!!! Bam!! the picture is perfect – the colours the energy!! this message has been the one I return to again and again! with me the whole time I have been watching you and through b school! and I had to use it when going through my own first book cover process!! and when I created it onto a wall poster for The Barefoot Sanctuary it was in yellow! a sign of things to come!! can’t wait to read your book – well done – love love to you Bernadette Petrie x

    • Marie

      thank you SO very much Bernadette!! Yellow can be such a powerful color, right? Sending you love right back 💗

  115. The cover is AMAZING! The colors are optimistic – YOU are optimistic – and it radiates confidence – I can do ANYTHING! Having gone through B-School this year, and having Marie say “Everything is figureoutable” several times, it’s already become my mantra. I’ve said it in my head several times when I’ve been in situations where I didn’t think I could make it. Marie – you ROCK! Thank you for being you.

    • Marie

      You make my heart sing Frauke!! THANK YOU.

  116. Stefanie Birkholz

    It excites me SO much that I’ve got tears in my eyes and throwing my hands up in the air at the same time. Proud to be a student of B-School and Copy Cure. And damn YES, everything’s figureoutable. Love you, Marie, Love you, fantastic team! Thank you SO much for all that you do for me and us. P.S. Grammarly says about FIGUREOUTABLE it’s an unknown word. that needs to change :))).

    • Marie

      We love YOU Stefanie! Thank you for your support 🙂 YES! Let’s get on that Grammarly fix, shall we? 🤓💗

  117. Spectacular!!! Having had the pleasure of working on Team Forleo and following Marie for years, I’m overjoyed this book is finally seeing the light of day. I’ve pre-ordered the book and can’t wait to voraciously read it in September.

    For me, the creative process is a push and pull of excitement and anxious frustration. That’s the duality I feel I always live in. One of the most important ways I’ve found to help get through the anxious and frustrating times is to go with the flow more. I know that may sound wishy-washy or unprofessional, but you can’t get blood from a rock. When I start to feel those times when it’s just not happening, I let it not happen. I redirect my energy and effort to moving my body, eating something super-delicious, and indulging in other hobbies (usually reading a good book!). I only let myself take one day off from my creative project before I approach it again, often with a different mindset + angle that helps me to start moving forward again, even if it’s slowly. I tend to be the type of person that gets excited about something, and then I run at it at full speed, forgetting to take care of myself and continue to stay inspired by, gasp, having a life outside of my project, haha.

    • Marie

      “Can’t get blood from a rock” AGREED Victoria!! Sending you an enormous hug!

  118. Andrea

    WOW…I can’t explain how amazing it is for me to watch this. I’m really inspired by Marie and I love the cover, the creative process and everything this incredible team does! I’ve been in my blocked and victim mode for the last week and now is the time to wash out all that BS and be a professional.
    Question for Spanish speaking people! I ‘m from Colombia, trying to think of the best way to translate Everything is Figureoutable to Spanish…trying to explain the concept to my mom. “Todo es figurable” doesn’t sound as amazing as it does in English…does it? Anyway! I wish this book is translated into Spanish!

    • Marie

      Me too Andrea!

  119. HilBelmont

    Loved it loved it loved it
    I am totally pre-ordering the book because I love Marie´s philosophy, it has already changed my life and I would not miss a coaching session with her.
    Congratulations to all Team Forleo and the publisher team and everyone involved behind the scenes
    Hugs and love from Beautiful México!

    • Marie

      Thank you Hilbelmont! Means the WORLD to us!

  120. Marcia P Ramsey

    Absolutely love it. And I want the book!

  121. Carrie Duso

    Gah!! Just teared up on that reveal you guys. It’s beyond perfect… the build-up perfect…everything perfect. So freaking happy for you Marie, but really the whole dang team too! I’m kinda dying for this book now 🤩

  122. OMG!!! I just got goosies!!!! SO EXCITED for this book….and so excited for everything that lies ahead for you Marie!

    • YESSSSS, CJ!! Us too – major goosies about the whole thing and getting to share the first part with you today. We cannot wait for all that’s still to come!

  123. Loved seeing the process that went in to creating this fabulous cover. I’ve preordered my copy and can’t wait to read Everything Is Figureoutable. Congratulations Marie and Team Forleo!

  124. Sylvia

    This cover is super dope!! I’ve been a fan of Marie Forleo and MarieTV for years now and just the same I’m going to feel magical reading it! Thanks so much for all you do! #teamforleo

    Can’t wait to read it. Wooooohoooooo

  128. when you were showing the behind the scenes outfits i KNEW the orange and yellow look was the one 🙂 The cover looks great! Also your motion graphics in this video are on point~

  129. I’m always so impressed by how you do things! A “behind the scenes” look at one aspect of your book process totally made me click and the pre-order ticket to your new program is genius too. Of course, pre-ordering now. Not surprised by how you do things, but always super impressed!!

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Thank you so much, Sheridan! 🙂

  130. Loved loved this behind the scenes video!!! Love the cover! I can soo see/feel a tribute to your mom in the outfit and vibe of the cover 💕

  131. Final result is absolutely gorgeous! Well done and congratulations to Marie and Team Forleo on your newest baby 🙂

  132. Marie and Team Forleo! Your book cover rocks! Awesome accomplishment to be an author ~ thrilled for you! Placed my pre-order & bought a second book as a gift! Can’t wait to feel the inspiration even more & super excited to share it with someone too!
    Susan Wright ~ Founder ~ Innovation To Learn

  133. Patricia P Martig

    Congratulations Marie! I have adopted your mantra “Everything is Figuroutable” ever since I heard it and am so excited to have it expanded upon in your new book. I have done the preorder and have September 10 circled on my calendar! Thank you!

  134. Elizabeth Rainbolt

    “Everything is Figureoutable” saved my life. I recently lost my dream job with its accompanying dream salary and tumbled into a deep depression. Because I have a solid foundation and belief that everything truly is Figureoutable (and it is in a heart on my dream wall), I am working through it a day at a time, instead of giving up. I reached out for help and am seeing a therapist. To say thank you I have preordered the Audible, Kindle, and Hardcover versions of “Everything is Figureoutable”.
    Keep up the great work Marie, because the world definitely needs that special gift that is you.

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Elizabeth, we’re so glad to hear you’re working through one day at a time and taking good care of yourself in the face of losing your dream job. We’re sending our best thoughts and wishes, and hope that we can keep sharing little nuggets of “everything is figureoutable” wisdom to help keep you inspired along your journey toward the next brilliant chapter for you.

      • Elizabeth Rainbolt

        Caroline,
        Thank you for your response. I actually found an episode from 2011 about not wanting to get out of bed that is helping me to finish my goal from the Follow Through part of B-School. I have set 3 NNT’s (Non Negotiable Time) for the morning and evening. I thought something was wrong with me because 21 days never made a habit for me, but knowing that science now says to keep it up for 66 days to really ingrain it lets me know I’m not broken.
        Thanks again – Marie – and Team Forleo – Completely ROCK!

  135. So much love to the whole team – you guys rocked it! Design shouldn’t be an afterthought – grateful you guys place a premium on the art of communication.

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Ahhh, thank you so much, Michelle! So much love back from us 🙂

  136. Erica

    Boom!!!!! 💥

    Nailed it. Ninjed it. Crushed it.

    Got those whole body “YES” vibes when it appeared.

    Pre-order…Done ✅

    Big Congratulations and Big Love to Marie and Team Forleo for feeding our souls every day. 💗🧜🏽‍♀️

  137. Brilliant thank you just pre ordered. And you just solved a whole bunch of what the heck am I going to do for my cover when the time comes. Which is a while away.
    Love and Light
    Thank you for taking us all there
    Christine and the Animals

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Yay, Christine! We’re so glad this is inspiring your future book cover too 🙂 Thank you SO much for preordering! xo

  138. AMAZINGLY YOU MARIE!! I’m just so thrilled for you! This message is KEY for all and I can’t wait to share it with my community! Enjoy this wild ride! Thank you for all the goodness you put out in the world! OX

  139. I loved this! This shows what going with your gut can do!!! That is my favourite message in this. It shows not to give up and to follow your gut even if you are a bit unsure, etc. I was thinking that she might want to add a photo of herself!!! 🙂 It’s just like telling others that it’s ok to be who they are and stand proud of it. 🙂 She’s not just saying that you should be proud of yourself but showing it. Can’t wait to read this! Love to you now and always.
    Namaste

  140. Sherry S.

    LOVE the cover!
    As a web designer, I can safely say that design can be SO complicated, to convey what you want to convey. So I started thinking about it, as I watched your video, wondering, “What needs to be there on the cover? How *can* you convey that everything is figureoutable without being cliche or boring or over-obvious?” I don’t envy what your two teams had to accomplish! That is one challenging goal.
    The only thing I hoped for sure was that there would be bright colors, somehow, because I think it conveys the energy of the message, which is so action-packed and hopeful (to me, anyway!). So I found myself nodding immediately when I saw the cheerful orange and yellow against the comfort of the blue. Add to that Marie’s awesome attitude “you bet your ass you can do this!” stance in the photo, and I just think it works so well! Love it, love it, love it!
    I can’t wait for this book to come out. I feel like it’s something I’ve been waiting to read and needed to hear for a long time. <3
    Order by September? F*** that! I'm pre-ordering it today. (LOL)
    P.S. So happy to see that Tropicana orange pop up throughout the video. I half-expected to see it on the cover in the corner somewhere. Maybe it will be on the back jacket? 😉
    P.S. again. Now I need to re-watch the "Everything is Figureoutable" talk Marie gave. I love that so much. It lifts me up every time I watch it. Thanks, Marie!

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Thank you SO much, Sherry! We just love the little Tropicana cameos too 🙂

  141. Congrats Marie! Thank you for taking us behind the scenes. Very cool to see. Can’t wait for this book. Thank you for continuing to be a bright light and shining the way / pushing the barriers and following your heart

  142. Giovanna

    Hi Marie ,
    After watching this video….WOW!! I actually was moved to tears! I love those famous words uttered by your mom and have them posted on a sticky note from the first time I’d heard it by you, years ago, and find myself saying it to my kids as well, lol. I love how you and your team explained the process for the cover and feel you hit all the points you were trying to achieve, with a very clear exclamation point! The phrase is Marie and she looks like she owns it, all of it, as she should. There is nothing like it and it definitely stands out, and it should. I love it!!! Being a part of Marie’s world, I am constantly learning something new and valuable, EVERY…SINGLE….TIME!!! I love how you share so openly with us, it really helps, not just for business, but for real life situations. Making decisions, listening to your gut, speaking your truth and sticking to it. Stuff I’m working on improving everyday. 🙂 Can’t wait to read it and see you on the book tour!
    Much love xoxo
    Giovanna

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Giovanna – this truly means the world. We can’t wait to see you on the book tour too!

  143. Sofia

    Marie
    I’ve been watching, learning & admiring your journey for about 7 years. Today, seeing this book cover (which your team NAILED) and seeing the title.. made me actually shed a tear! Your MOM must be so proud that her little phrase would one day help millions of other women. But, I’m sure she’s the MOST proud that her amazing daughter took her advice & used it to help herself AND shared it with all of us! Love the cover & cannot wait to read this. Brava Marie!

    Sincerely,

    Sofia J Lyons

  144. Yes Yes Yes!!! Gorgeous!

  145. Anne-Lie Höög

    Love the cover! Of course you should be on it =D
    Pre-ordered it a couple of minutes ago

  146. Congratulations Marie on the book. I just pre-ordered mine. You have been very inspiring and it feels like there is a shift happening that requires us to have something to continue with our fight, our optimism and hope to allow us to be resilient. Looking forward to reading it and can’t wait to see you at the book signing event in the Bay Area.

  147. Pia

    You created an awesome book cover 👍😀 can’t wait to read the book.

  148. Ann

    The cover is awesome! Marie looks like sunshine on a clear blue sky. It feels happy and optimistic. Together with my dad and sisters we are trying to figure out the next steps in doing what is best for my mom who is struggling with Alzheimer’s. We have to make some really hard decisions this week and just resting in the idea of everything is figureoutable is giving me some calm right now. Thank you! I am pre-ordering the book now!

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Ann, thank you so much for your kind words, and I’m sorry to hear you’re going through some tough decisions right now. It means so much to know that this helped lift your spirits, and know that we’re sending all our love to you and your family.

  149. LOVE the cover, so vibrant and inviting. CONGRATULATIONS Marie and all the team, my order is definitely placed, excited to read it. I’m still finishing B-School and loving every minute of it, whilst working, launching a tiny house business and getting our online business off the ground from little wee New Zealand – it’s definitely all figureoutable, at least will be even more figureoutable when I read the book! Thanks so much for all you do, it really inspires me to bring out the best in myself, keep it coming!
    Website still to launch – Love xxxx Fiona

  150. I teared up seeing the cover. So wonderful!!!!!!!

  151. Thank you for sharing your process on the book cover! AND how brilliant of you to capture the message in this video. It’s a perfect example of what you are teaching and that is we have to go through that iterative journey of the figure-outable stuff just as you and your team did for the book. What a brilliant way to launch the book too!

  152. Karen

    Way to go Marie and Team Forleo! It TOTALLY captures the energy and heart of Marie! Can’t wait to get the book….just a quick question, can we Canadians purchase it on Amazon.ca?

    • Caroline – Team Forleo

      Thank you so much, Karen – and yes, its’s definitely available on Amazon.ca so you can just search for Marie’s name! If you have any trouble searching for it, write us at info AT marieforleo DOT com and we’ll be happy to help.

  153. This is the book I just HAVE TO BUY!! <3 Can't wait to hold it in my hands 😀

  154. Cathy

    That is a phenomenal cover, love the blue and the attitude on your face, can’t wait to read it.

  155. Congratulations on a beautiful cover and a great book I’m sure! Pre-ordered a copy and looking forward to reading it! 🙂

  156. Carol B.

    This is goals! So happy for you Marie. The cover looks amazing! Can’t wait to read the book 🙂

  157. Jane Jones

    When I saw the cover it was just so emotional. I nearly burst into tears I was so happy for you. And yes girl you got this so go go

  158. Sandra

    Marie, I jumped on the pre-order, and I’m an audible fan so of course I’m getting it there … but no, it’s not available for little ole me who lives in New Zealand. Come-on Audible New Zealand is not another planet, we may be small but we are mighty. Can you look into this Marie?

  159. Caroline – Team Forleo

    Hi Sandra! New Zealand is definitely not on another planet 🙂 I had replied before, but it looks like it’s Amazon that the book is available at, not Audible. We’ll definitely check on that, and if you’re looking for some New Zealand specific links, you can write to us at info AT marieforleo DOT com!

  160. Valerie J Runyan

    Hey Marie-
    Congratulations on having your one true thing not left unsaid! Ever since your “Super Soul” talk which is how I first encountered you and you told the story of your Mom and her Tropicana Orange Juice radio and it broke and you found her trying to fix it and she told you that “Everything Is Figureoutable” and I even saw it painted on a wall in a few of your Marie TV shows I have lived by that absolute belief and it has served me well as it has you! I love the cover and the way you stood up for the cover YOU wanted and that is the cover the whole world will see and fall in love with, just as I stuck to the kind of cover I wanted for my book which everyone sees on my Instagram feed each and every time I post. When you know what you want and you know how you feel towards that thing and if you have the guts to defend your absolute blief in that thing then everyone else will come around because they will give in before you give up and they know it, I look forward to the Audio version because I love the way you talk which is a lot like me! You rock on girl, and congrats once again!
    -Valerie

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Valerie! And it’s so true––sometimes you just *know* what you want. That’s your intuition coming in loud and clear. 🙂

  161. You nailed it.
    Very proud of you Marie and Team.
    Kudos.

  162. Leslye Cole

    Gosh you guys! Absolutely brilliant! I’m so happy I am connected via your motivational emails. Marie, you truly have changed my life already xx

  163. Sharon Cohn

    YES! Just YES! It is divine! It IS what it is supposed to be! I see and feel the magic! I can’t wait to dive beneath the cover(s) with Marie! (LOL!) Congratulations team Forleo on your gorgeous work! I love you guys! (Ordering now!)

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Yay, Sharon! It’ll be here before you know it. 🙂

  164. Rene bregeon

    Huge congratulations to you Marie! And all your fabulous team.
    Your energy and dedication is truly inspiring. And the cover too. I love the way you’ve set the type so that it’s not immediately figureoutable but draws you in. I guess that in itself reflects you. I’ve pre ordered and excited to read the gems of wisdom in there. Intrigued too, to see how your voice carries through a book. Pretty much with the same joyful resonance as everything else you write I’m sure.
    As for my own path through an artistic block or indecision….well, I’m still learning to trust my instincts. The best way of doing that seems to be the evidence left behind whenever I don’t!! Sometimes though, I just get too close to a piece, too intent on the minute detail, until the point where I can’t decide what’s right or wrong. So I leave it, go do summat else and when I return it’s usually obvious where the problem is. Or indeed if the piece is actually finished and I was just being too fussy. I guess sometimes, even with the creative stuff, it’s best to “not spend major time on minor things” as Jim Rohn so perfectly phrased it. Though the detail always lifts a piece further than expected.
    Thanks for the fun video of the cover creation. Generous, joyful and real, as always.

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      That’s a really good point, Rene! And one of the many reasons why creativity can’t be rushed. Sometimes it really is that bit of time and distance that makes all the difference. Keep up the great work!

  165. Dear Marie and Team,
    We are all so excited for you and cannot wait to read your new book! I love coming here every week to find creative inspiration and now we will all be able to hold something in our hands and refer to it daily. The cover speaks volumes about you and your message. It’s a perfect choice. When I wrote and published my first book I knew the cover when I saw it. Again, we are all excited for you and your team. Writing a book is a great accomplishment and will be part of your amazing legacy. Will run over there now and get my copy!
    Blessings,
    Laura

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Yay, Laura, and thank you! We hope you love the inside as much as the outside. 🙂

  166. Done–pre-ordered! Can’t wait to get the book Marie! So excited and thank you for continuing to share your inspiring stories and great energy.

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Woohoo! We can’t wait for you to read it!

  167. Absolutely love the cover! Gave me goosebumps seeing it. Have just pre-ordered!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Nicky! <3

  168. Exactly how I imagined this amazing work from Marie would be: imaginative, cutting-edge, useful, beautiful, inspiring, and fun! Congratulations! I preordered this and cannot wait to read it!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Awesome, Gail! It’ll be here before you know it. 🙂

  169. I was so moved by the process, I broke out into tears when I saw the final cover. I was feeling every emotion that Marie went thru to get there and I can feel what everyone else would be feeling. This is incredibly powerful, emotional, authentic…and that’s just the cover.
    It evokes so much freaking love, it is beyond words. What a legacy!

  170. Lara Walsh

    LOVE the cover! Where’s the best place to pre-order for shipping to Australia?

  171. Yes!! I love the book’s story, the intention behind it, the cover and your passion to share! I love how professional, motivated and driven you are Marie! So inspiring!!

    I know exactly what you mean when you ask ever been frustrated or anxious in creative process… Yes Yes Yes.
    I’m in the middle of writing a book right now. Step Into Your Power, a practical guidebook to transform emotions into positive actions, mindsets into clarity and focus, and body into a vessel of vibrancy, using practices of Yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, neuroscience and psychology. But it’s a huge plate and a big mouthfull to share with others.
    And there are nights I wake up thinking, who really wants this? Or do I have anything new to add to what’s out there?
    Even though I know I have unique insights and been searching for answers all my life seeing loved ones around me suffer due to lack of knowledge and motivation, I still have those moments, especially when most people in my family think I’m wasting my time.

    What’s a good way to deal with family who don’t belief in your gifts, or think that’s just plain naive?

    Thanks for all your inspiration Marie, and all the hard and gorgeous work team Forleo! I am soooo glad you guys are doing your work!! It’s helping us stay strong when we need support in our dreams! Much Love Shira.

  172. Alicia S St Rose

    Wow! Just this 8 minute video was ridiculously inspiring. I can’t wait to see what the book holds!!!

  173. CONGRATULATIONS, MARIE!!! So happy for you, and so happy for the world that your book is coming out. Thank you for all the work it has been to create it, for living what you teach, and for being such an incredible inspiration! Sending lots of love, appreciation and hugs to you and Team Forleo!

  174. Well done sister. WELL DONE! It’s stunning.

  175. OK, Marie. You made us wait. You had us freaking out. And then you dropped the cover. It’s amazing and my pre-order is complete. Not only will I get your life’s work, but I also get FREE coaching? Stop it.
    I was teaching Time Management this morning to a group of VPs and they asked this question. How do you get through those ‘middle moments’. You have a plan, stay focused, and you let the energy move as you FIGURE IT OUT. It will come. It will happen. Stay focused and stay on it.
    I am SO excited to read this book and have marked my calendar. Thank you, Marie and Team. Thank you so very much!

  176. I’m crying. In a good way. 😂
    With all my heart: CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS!!!!

  177. OMG!!!!! Congratulations!!!! I got emotional watching this video Marie! It’s been so fun and such. a. TEASE watching you create, and hearing you talk about it during the process. Thanks for sharing the wholeeeeeee journey, how you came to the final decision on the book cover, and WOW. Can’t wait to read it. Well done Team Forleo, you nailed it!

  178. Congratulations!!! 🎉🎉🎉 I love the cover and this glimpse into your team’s incredible creativity and hard work!

  179. CONGRATS MARIE & TEAM! This was such a great book launch video. The cover is GORG and I can’t wait to read it. Pre-order? UMM FUCK YA!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Melanie! 😀 We’re so glad you like it!

  180. Kellie

    I’m SOOOO excited!!!! Congrats Marie and Team for creating something so beautiful! You could have sent out an email saying pre-order now and I would have. But, this!! This, takes it to the next level! Even before the book is published, you’re sharing wisdom for sticking to your gut and trusting your intuition. I love the way you do things and am grateful for everything you share! This was a timely message for me, thank you! I’ve pre-ordered it and signed up for emails! (P.S. That webpage is insanely amazing!! LOVE IT!) I can’t wait to hear about the tour!!!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      YAY, Kellie, and thank you!! We’re super excited too!

  181. Ginny

    I love the cover! I have been in meetings with my team where it is frustrating because there is overlap talk because everyone wants to ne heard. I found that ultimately our leader has to moderate to keep us moving forward so our creative ideas are heard and there is collaboration.

  182. Congratulations on your book! That’s no easy task. My co-author and I just finished our book, “From Sabotage to Support: A New Vision for Feminist Solidarity in the Workplace”. I hear you when you talk about the contents to the feelings of “oh my gosh, what am I taking on?” or “do I really know what I’m talking about” to designing your cover. I loved hearing about your process with Penguin, it’s so helpful to hear about other people’s experiences with their publishers and also to hear about all the little thoughts and ideas that went into the cover. Our first one look like a 1990 training manual. Ha!
    Congratulations and I listen to your show all the time. I’ve been following you since like 2003 when you were on Christian Carter’s “Catch him and keep him”. Yea, that long ago!
    So happy for you! I already get the emails, thank you!
    Joy

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Congrats to you and your co-author too, Joy! It means the world to us that you’ve been following Marie since 2003! We’re honored you’re a part of our community. <3

  183. Carrie Simmons

    Hi Marie! The cover is absolutely perfect for who you are and what you represent! I can’t wait to read your book, as your mantra “Everything is Figureoutable” is now so engrained in my head!! I am a furniture artist and was doing a custom piece that was making me crazy. I ran into so many roadblocks and had to start over, spending many more hours than I estimated on this piece. But I kept saying out loud “Everything is Figureoutable” over and over again and it truly helped me work my way through this and helped me come up with new ideas I hadn’t thought of before. I finished the piece last weekend, the customer loved it and all is good! Thank you for your inspiration…and I’m so excited for your huge success you will have with this book! You and your team are just awesome!

  184. Lisa

    I got goosebumps when I saw the final cover! When you know you know!

  185. Nelia

    Normally, I just get my books on Kindle. But this one is so beautiful, I had to order the hard cover! Fun to get the back story on how the cover was created.

  186. All honesty, if the cover were a blank page that just said “By Marie Forleo”, I’d buy it. Zero hesitation. That said, I absolutely love the cover design you and team created/chose because it embodies you, the spirit of the message, and it forces one to pay attention. Bravo! Can’t wait to absorb all its wisdom! 🧡💛

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Lenora! The blank page with Marie’s name was our second choice book cover. 😉

  187. I absolutely love your new book cover! I look forward to your encouraging words. I pre-ordered it on Kindle!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Wonderful, Alyssa, and thank you! I’ll be here before you know it. 🙂

  188. I love it! Marie. Can’t wait until I get your book. Thank you for going on a limb and inspiring us and guiding us.
    God bless you

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Marla! We can’t wait for you to get it either. 🙂

  189. Mary

    Ordered! Fantastic cover! Marie looks beautiful and honestly powerful (which she is). Love the shade of türkis/blue. Cannot wait to read it!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Mary! We can’t wait for the release day!

  190. Vanessa Smallridge

    ❤ Beautiful . Beautiful . Beautiful ❤
    please say it will be available on Audible 🤞… that’s “Figureoutable” right !!!
    xxx

  191. Kristina Kaneva

    Love the cover:) And can’t wait to read the book. Will it be available for pre-order for Kindle?

  192. Love the colour combination! It’s fresh. It’s going to look like spring time in the fall when it hits the bookstores. I’m going to preorder now!

  193. Karen Brown

    Wow, I must have been one of the first to pre-order it, March 8th according to Amazon Uk. Can’t wait to read it!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      NICE! You’re ahead of the game!

  194. First of all CONGRATULATIONS. The cover looks bomb-diggi. I´ve been looking forward to the book since Marie announced there is one coming! So yes, I also pre-ordered as fast as I could. It must feel enourmous to know I have my one core message out in the world now! That is an excellent and inspiring goal and I hope I get there at somepoint, too.

    Regarding creative processes: I feel I always start out stuck as I feel overwhelmed, afraid all I do will be stupid anyhow or not hit the spot. I learned to get out of that to really only think of that one next babystep to handle my overwhelm and this way get started at all. Same if I get stuck in the middle of the process. For me also moving my body is a great way to get out of my head, more into my body and thus have more coherence so that mind and body are going the same direction. ALSO asking for support is a big one. Who could help at this point even if it is “just” a talk with the intention of finding a solution.

    Thanks for all you do!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      That’s such a good point, Jäz! Marie is a big believer in moving your body to get the creative juices flowing too, so you both have that in common. 🙂 We appreciate you preordering the book and we can’t wait until it arrives!

  195. Benson Modie

    Woo….it’s beautiful…….absolutely fabulous!

  196. Marie K

    Have pre-ordered the book yesterday as soon as the email came through! Love the cover – the colours are so happy and just like the lil Tropicana radio 😀
    Great to watch the design process for it too. Can’t wait!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      YAY! Thank you, Marie! 🙂

  197. Christine

    Marie,
    You always move me with your messages. Today it was tears. I’ve spent my whole life holding back and feel I’m about to burst forward and share my gift with the world. As you understand that is exciting and scary as hell.
    Thanks for being you and sharing your gift with the world.
    Sending love and light,
    Christine Ripley

  198. So fun and inspiring and energizing. Great share, love the cover, can’t wait to read.

    Congratulations, Marie & Teams!

  199. Sandra

    Marie!! Congratulations on this new project. As a graphic designer, I have to say I absolutely love the creative concept, the designs, typography and colors in every image, and the cover of course, it’s so powerful. I am so excited to read the book, already pre ordered, all the love to you 😘

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      That’s so great to hear, Sandra, and thank you! <3

  200. It’s stupid it’s so perfect! The colors, the text–larger than life, just like you! BAM! Awesome!!

  201. LisaK

    Congrats on the book and the cover is very Marie and Team!

  202. Lorna Macintosh

    Book is visual & verbal perfection inside & out, which you embody on the cover.

  203. Aiki Arro

    This book will definitely be on the spot of honour on my endless book shelf!!! It’s like a design-element even! Forget the mantra- and quote-frames they sell in stores – buy this book and everybody will be wowed 🙂 and I mean it! And I want to translate it into Estonian! YES!

  204. Evelyn

    The cover is STUNNING! Love the color and message. Pre-Ordered and I can’t wait to get it.

  205. Amber Wyatt

    Ahhh!!! Love the cover, the font, the colors, EVERYTHING!! If anyone has ever listened to you tell the Tropicana orange radio story then they could see that everything about this screams Everything is Figuroutable! <3 Pre-Ordered & can't wait to read it!

  206. Marie and Team Forleo!!!! I am so glad to have seen the unfolding of this process and I felt certain the color orange had to absolutely had to be a part of this because I couldn’t help thinking about the little orange Tropicana radio story

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Yes! That’s exactly what we were going for. 🙂

  207. It’s perfect! It reminds me of a fashion coffee table book. I love it!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Letitia! We’re big fans of fashion coffee table books, so that’s high praise. <3

  208. Michelle

    Ah, so exciting! Well done team. Loved getting a peak into the work that went into choosing the cover. It is spot on what you described in the beginning. Can’t wait to read it.

  209. Love that you live what you teach us. Follow your gut. Trust your heart. So excited to read this beautiful book!

  210. linda tinson

    I can’t wait….fabulous cover!

  211. Hi Marie. I actually tried pre-ordering before it was even available as soon as I learned that you were writing a book. I am sooo excited and can’t wait to read it. It will be truly life changing for everyone and thanks for being such an inspiring role model.

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      You were ahead of the curve, Nicole! Thank you so much for your excitement and enthusiasm. 😀

  212. Always enjoy a good decision making process from teams who are dedicated to making something beautiful come to life. And the result is fantastic (I’m a particular fan of the blue/ teal background) and how it pops, but that there’s bit of mystery to read the title and cover too. And you’re already No #1 on Amazon with months to go – I can tell this one is going to be the legacy you wished to leave, and more!

  213. Congrats WELL DONE … as always You are UNFORGETTABLE….. and You have been Auditioning for my film Company and don’t know it… every-time I watch your vids I see a MOVIE STAR ..who is not doing what she was born to do ..because the Old Hollywood is DEAD. you see the New Hollywood will be SOCIAL MEDIA STARS in my Historic Films … …everything you have done PROVES in the Right Films you will be a Brilliant Legacy telling stories that will help the World a 100 years from now….

    Sincerely,
    AWARD WINNING FILMMAKER
    MICHAEL SAVAGE Aka Sirtony

  214. I can’t wait for the book to come out. When things get tough “everything is Figureoutable “ is stuck there in the back of my mind. It makes you refocus and find the way forward.
    I love the comment “ if I get run over by a bus tomorrow this is what I want to leave behind”
    My business is my baby but I want to push it forward to leave a lasting part of me. Yes if “I get run over by a bus”
    Marie’s work has helped in so many ways so inspiring so much knowledge so much love. B-school is the best modern marketing course ever !
    I can’t wait for the book to come out. Pre order done.
    Please please watch out for buses ! We all need that special gift that only Marie can deliver. ❤️

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much, Christine! And don’t worry, Marie is EXTRA careful around buses. 🙂

  215. Kseniya Medv

    Oh my Goodness!! What an inspiring video!!!!! Love you, Marie & Team Forleo and can’t wait to get my hands on the book!!!!

  219. Christine

    Hi Team Forleo!
    Which of the suppliers for pre-order do you recommend when located in Europe (Denmark)? Thanks!

  220. Tanya

When the music begins, and the cover is revealed ~with confetti~ I was SOOO HAPPY for Marie and her team!! Tears of happiness, and so excited for my book to arrive Sept 10th! HUGE CONGRATS!!

  224. Ljubisa

    A first book is like a first child. While we can’t decide what the semblance of our child would be, for the book we certainly can.So, why we wouldn’t choose a cover which makes us the most excited and most satisfied! You made a wonderful choice, Marie! My adoration!

  225. Teresa

    What to do with the receipt after purchase?

    • Julia - Team Forleo

    Do see what you do to me, Marie! Lol

  228. I cannnnnnnn’t wait for everything around this book. Marie never holds back… and I am so pumped to see not just the book come out, but alllllll the rest of the magic that Marie and Team Forleo drop around it.
