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.

“Imagine if a Beyoncé concert and a TED talk had a baby, then threw a block party.” That was the vision I  shared with our publisher about how I wanted the Everything is Figureoutable book tour launch in New York City to feel.  

Nothing like it had ever been done. I certainly have never produced or performed in a concert. But beyond that, none of us knew if this exciting idea would work in reality.  In fact, weeks before the event, even I was asking myself, “W H A T did I get myself into?!?!” 

Despite all the fear, stress, and overwhelm, we had to keep going. Commitments were made. Contracts were signed. We’d sold nearly 2,000 tickets and had folks flying in to see NYC book tour launch from 42 states and 21 countries.

You wouldn't have the dream if you didn't already have what it takes to make it happen. Click To Tweet

But could we actually pull it off? In this special episode of Marie Unplugged, get a backstage pass to the weeks leading up to The NYC Experience book tour launch. If you ever wondered what it looks like to start before you’re ready, this is your chance. You’ll witness the tears, hard work, and dress rehearsals that made this a true test of the everything is figureoutable philosophy. 

Even during the toughest moments, this concert experience has been one of the most creatively rewarding projects of my life. It allowed me to express all of me in a way I never thought I could. If you’ve ever felt insecure about your projects but imagine other people don’t, please watch now.

  8. It looks awesome, Marie! I found myself crying while watching it! Such hard work with so much *successful* FUN as rewards! Congratulations 🙂

  9. SO inspiring!! Marie, you are the BEST. In total awe.. Thank you for showing us the way. 🙂 love, jj

  10. Omg I teared up for Marie! Lol Looks like you guys had a blast!! When it finally comes together and you see it come to life, that’s the best feeling ever!!

    Excited to see more behind the scenes clip and really hoping you guys come to Toronto!!

  11. Marie, the show was AMAZING! I flew in from Austin to see it and it was so damn inspiring to hear, see, and experience. The show itself was *incredible* but it was also amazing to see and experience the insanely supportive community you’ve built show up for you and get to meet some of my fellow B-Schoolers.

    I’m struggling to get moving transitioning my business model. I’m going from kickass retainer clients to coaching programs for women who want to go from feeling unclear and overwhelmed to confident letting their voice out. This show was such an inspiration to dream big.

    Xx, Alyssa

    P. S. I loved hearing the story of your mom because I brought my mom to the show with me. See you in Austin!

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Alyssa, this means the world to hear. We’re so glad you came to the Experience (all the way from Austin!) and we look forward to seeing you on tour.

      Keep on dreaming big – we’re cheering you on all the way!

    • Marie Forleo, YOU ROCK! Wow! Thank YOU for sharing the behind the scenes beyond the show…I used to compare my life’s raw footage to other’s edited life trailer…Your episodes and presence is so elevating! Can’t wait to your book event in LA!! My game to honor my gifts to the world as a full on, life changing, BetterUp prosperous coach and woman!!❤️🙏💯🤲🙌🔥💪🙌

  12. This is fabulous. Have the time of your life! It has to be the best book tour ever done. Blessings

  13. Absoutely phenomenal, Marie! Congratulations!! I have goosebumps, and tears and I am so moved by this, and so incredibly inspired by you. Thank you for your amazing work! I’m a B- schooler and have just opened my Reformer Pilates studio, and am making it a success becuase you broke the rules, and the shattered the glass ceilings, so we all can figure anything out! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love Laura x

  14. Tears of joy running down my face as I re-live the moment. I flew from Switzerland to NYC with my family to be there Marie, and now watching the behind scenes, even more, I say it was worth it all, plus! AMAZING event, performance, experience, etc… you name it. Thank you for leading the way Marie and showing us how everything is figureoutable. Keep on rocking, much love girl.
    PS: loooooving the book… it feels like having a real-time conversation with you!

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Oh wow, we’re so honored you traveled all the way from Switzerland to join us at the Experience, Andrea! We’re so glad you were able to make it, and it means the world to hear you’re loving the book too 🙂

  15. You did it! So excited for you. Watching this video made me cry. You are the proof that you can do anything you focus on. Such inspiration. Thank you for sharing this with us.

  16. You did it, so amazing, congrats xxxxxxxxxxxx
    And I ‘m waiting for the mail-man to bring your book to my house her in the Netherlands!! 😉

  17. Tahleah Rose

    I cannot wait to see Marie in Australia and I’m grateful for the stage in life I’m at. 3 years ago I took a leap and started life coaching at 22. It was only this year that I decided for many reasons (and not one of them was fear) to take a break and re-build. I know from much self reflection that coaching IS what I’m made for and I’m so stoked to be able to look up to people like Marie because it proves to me that you can create a unique experience, re-invent and build from past experiences and skill sets! It’s inspiring to me and filling me with so much possibility for my future. Thank you for sharing your unique gifts Marie and the team!

  18. It. Was. Awesome!!!!! Watching the incredible amount of behind the scenes work is so much fun, after having seen the show live. Yay! Brava!

  19. Thank you Marleo,

    Guuuuurrrlll!!! That was the Bizzness!!!! Thank you so much for every moment of this tremendous experience. Yes, you hit the nail on the head. I´m confronting fears about my visions for the future and I realize, that it´s ok to be scared….just do it anyway. Small steps…..
    Gratitude for this timely message. I´ll be picking up a copy of that book on Amazon.

    Hugs, Joy and happiness!

    Monica Lewis-Schmidt

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Yes, Monica! It’s definitely okay to be scared, and small steps add up to big leaps. We can’t wait for you to check out Marie’s book! 🙂

  20. Franca

    OMG! Marie, you’re so freaking AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! the energy, the creativity, the love and the willingness to raise the vibration of ALL of us. I truly hope I get to see the show in the UK! so much love.

  21. Danielle

    Girl…girrrrrrrl! In literally 8 minutes I was reminded, yet again, why I pre-ordered your book and why your whole being clicks with me so damn well. I am overjoyed with your success and hard work and so appreciate seeing this video because I feel, at some point, I may find myself on stage. Thank you for all that you are and sharing that special something that only YOU have 💓💓💓.

  22. Katharina

    Oh my!!!! This is absolutely amazing!!! thanks so much for sharing! you are an absolute ROCKSTAR role model and inspiration for me and I can’t wait to see more and more of what unfolds for you. I am so proud of you and so happy you could live that dream and make it visible for everyone there in NYC. I wish I could have been there. love K

  23. Marie, a million congratulations being sent your way! For the book itself, and for this amazing NYC Launch! Everything IS figureoutable!!

    Wish you were heading to Canada…

    xoxo Marissa

  24. You are literally a friggin Rock star!! And a total inspiration. Thank you! Xoxoxoxoxooxoxo

  25. OH EM GEE I swear I’m gonna pee my pants when I see you in Melbourne. I can’t wait. Marie you’re like my biggest idol right now

  26. I feel so proud and inspired and moved and excited by all that you’ve done. Thank you, Marie! Come to Denver! 🙂

  27. This is SO inspiring! Another teary-eyed comment… Thank you for including the ‘what did I get myself into?!!’ at the beginning, and thank you for going through the fear(s).
    To answer your questions, yes, just coming out with my ‘thing’ is super scary because it’s such a soul-calling. And I’m taking small steps (since some time now), but can’t hear/see a response which is very unnerving. So, to make things even more scary I’ve decided to go for what you call ‘the multi-passion entrepreneur’ and gear up from small steps to bigger leaps. Argh! Scary! Exciting! Let’s do it! 😀
    xxx, Nina

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      SO exciting, Nina! You’ve got this ❤️

  28. Sanata

    I tried to keep a brave face because my boyfriend is right in front of me and I didn’t want to end up ugly crying but I definitely did, deep inside. I am so proud of you, Marie. I bought and started reading your book the second I opened it and I already know that it would be one to love for many years forward. Thank you so so much for everything you’re doing for all of us <3 <3 <3

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Oh thank you so much for your kind note, Sanata! We’re so happy you’re enjoying Marie’s book, and hope it can be a source of inspiration for many years to come!

  29. Omg, I can’t wait to see the show. You’re such an inspiration. My book is arriving today. There’re so many thing I want to do, but I have been depressed before from over working and I know that everything you do requires your fullest attention. I know can do so much. Your community is so beautiful to watch and that’s what I want to build a community of like-minded people who wants to work together and respect each other and believe in each other.

    Thank you Marie,
    I have tears in my eyes. So sad that I can’t attend any of the shows but I will be waiting to watch it. Sending you all love and good vibes.

  30. No words to describe how I’m feeling right now…
    I don’t know whether to continue crying or finally make that leap of faith…
    Everything is figureoutable, right? then I must be doing things out of order or wrong – because even though I am making progress it’s like a snail movement progress.
    No – I don’t mean that I want an overnight success either.
    Your book arrived yesterday to me, in Kuwait, by mail – Marie.
    I could swear I felt my heart sink – out of joy ofcourse.
    Teary eyes – but hey you get the picture.
    I know you believe in us but how can we ever repay you?
    So far I’ve spoken to you three times in your b-school office hours.
    Twice in 2015 – and once in 2019.
    I have to say that last call is what is keeping me up at night.
    Maybe I felt embarrassed.
    Not to make this too long – I’d like to make a statement.
    Maybe I haven’t step foot in the U.S. yet, but mark my words – I will come and thank you in person from the continuous support you have given.
    Thank YOU, MARIE FORLEO.

    • Erin Ferdinand

      Sending big love to you, Hadeel, from a fellow B-school alum! Envisioning you in the US and hugging it out with Marie soon.

      Your pal,
      Erin

      • THANK YOU, ERIN.
        Your comment made me smile – so thank you again.
        Sending love right back at ya!
        Hadeel.

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Hi Hadeel! We always love hearing from you, and please know it’s absolutely okay for progress to be slow. Even in situations where some people seem like an overnight success on the outside, we don’t usually get to see all the hard work, often over many years, that goes into their success.

      I hope you enjoy Marie’s book, and we can’t wait to see you in B-School 2020!

  31. Maria, soo excited for you. I’ve been following you for along time. It’s so uplifting to see your dreams come true. I love how you brought your fitness/dance together with your book tour. This is just so you which is the best part.
    Hope to see you this.
    You’re truly amazing. Sending love your way.
    Margie

  32. Wonderful! You are using ALL of your gifts. Thank you for this.

  33. Hey Marie, that´s amazing. I really love your power how you connected other people. There is alway a deep inner feeling that´s let you go forward. Indeed the moment to became real is a thirtend kick which let explore the blood pressure and heart adrinaline power runs through the whole body and the energy goes into a flow. The brain start to act. I myself love those moments comming together as a team with the whole aim of wellbeing. Thanks for sharing the video. sincerely Ilona

  34. Marie, watching this brought tears (lots of them )to my eyes. I can feel how much effort, thought, time and experience you put into your show. I am so proud of you for all you have accomplished. I hope some day my company and business can inspire millions of business owners, like you have. Starting my company at 57, three years ago, has been the most important journey I have made. To share my passion for the community of small business and while I can’t make the same kick ass moves as you, someday I would love to share my passion for small business success in a way that fits me.
    Thank you for sharing yourself with us.

  35. Susan Pitman

    I wanted to be there, bad. But when I missed the tickets, I accepted the timing and only cried for a minute 🙂
    Turned out to be for a good reason…being somewhere else at that time and engaging in an important moment with a human was the right thing.
    BUT – I cried tears as I watched this video! You’re so inspiring, Marie. I’m in the second half of my life, and because of crazy, unforeseen and unthinkable circumstances that happened six years ago, my life is different. It’s different but GOOD.
    There is a huge message and huge vision that weighs on me, and I’m scared beyond belief to step into it. I keep putting my toe out there – but then pulling it back. I’m going to read the book over and over, re-do all the B-School modules and step into action. Progress over perfection. Start before I’m ready. EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE.
    Thank you for doing this…showing us…going first. You. Are. Amazing. !!!!!
    Much love to you and the whole team – Susan

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      I’m so sorry you weren’t able to be there in person, Susan, but it sounds like you ended up being exactly where you needed to be. Sometimes the universe just knows.

      Keep listening to that small voice calling to you – taking small steps and moving forward is the cornerstone of bringing those huge visions to life!

  36. Laura Horne

    Oh My Gosh, Marie!!! Congratulations!!
    I wish we (us MF insiders) could see a recording of this event. Can we? I’d pay to see a recording of this?
    You should create an everything is figureoutable Netflix series. It would be big!!!!
    I’ve just finished reading everything is figureoutable. I loved it!!
    You’re the best Marie xx

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for your kind note, Laura – we’re so happ you loved the book! 🙂

      At the moment we don’t have a recording of the full event ready to go, but if and when we do, we’ll definitely let everyone know, so stay tuned!

  37. 👏🏻🙌🏻🤩 Wauw, Marie! That’s amazing. Yes, three times I’ve startet BIG projecets, and every time, I said the same thing: how did I get myself into this? 🙄 The thing that has helped me every time is this: what is the first and tiniest step I can take? The first time was an event there were 13.000 visiters. Second event came 68.000 😜 And now we’re trying to get our book sold and trying to find cooperations who will work with us. Good luck to you, Marie 🙏🏻💕 Enjoy it!

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Awesome, Jannie! Keep up the great work 🙂

  38. Amazing that you could combine your love of music and dance with the book launch. Perfect!! It is authentically YOU! x

  39. I’m in the process of creating a dream & vision….of midwifing others to believe they can do it, too….and do it. This touched me so much, it friggin’ made me cry! You rock.

  40. I literally started crying already during the opening sequence when I saw your eyes tear up as you were talking. Because I know those thoughts and feelings so well (albeit on a much smaller scale of performance pressure than what you were preparing for 🙂

  41. Soul-stirring.

    Your show brought up everything I’ve trained to do my entire life (act, produce, write, direct, teach, speak, be, bare my soul…) Everything that I have been avoiding for the last 23 years while distracting myself with the many “day jobs” that I’ve prioritized over my passions.

    Your behind the scenes video reminded me not only of how much I miss those passions, but how much I love the process. God… all those hours, days spent in “lock down” mode… eating and sleeping at the theater in order to meet the looming deadline…so utterly exhausting…and so deeply satisfying in a way no other work is.

    I weeped as I remembered it all and cheered you on. I cringed in fear of doing the inevitable for myself. And it’s the “figureaboutable” that makes my show inevitable. I simply can’t avoid it any longer.

    Like you, I am putting together a live show that combines my unlikely multi-passions of live performance and other seemingly unrelated gifts. It’s a concept that wouldn’t have even occurred to me, if not for B-school, its mentors and the supportive community that’s cheering me on and helping me figure out my path.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart and stay tuned… xoxoxoxo

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for your kind note, Erin. It means so much to know that our episode this week really resonated with you, especially as you’re creating your own live show. Please do keep us posted on how it’s going as we’d love to hear and cheer you on!

  42. The real thing.
    It fires up my imagination to continue including acting in my business.
    Thank you for an honest picture of what’s behind the scenes,
    xoxo

    • Erin Ferdinand

      You FIRE UP that imagination, Llyane! So excited for you… xoxoxo

      • After having hip-hop classes with Marie back in 2005, it’s easy to imagine the real show 🙂
        Thank you, Erin!
        xox

  43. Amy

    Omg! I’ll see you in person in Melbourne Marie ✨ It’s a dream come true! Keep lighting up the world x

  44. Rebecca

    Wow!!! I had no clue how big this production was going to be, or how bad ass it was going to be!!! Nice work! And to see you behind the scenes, the reality of it hitting you, that it wasn’t just a cake walk and you figured it out. Nice. I have a dream, it’s in my heart, but I don’t know “how” to make it happen. Your book is on my side table (finishing other book first), I’m praying the timing is right cause I asked for signs from the Universe about my job and the dream, and I’m really being pushed at work. I’ve over it. This job is sucking the life out of me.

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Rebecca, I’m sorry to hear your job is sucking the life out of you. That’s the worst feeling, and I hope that you find a bright new chapter soon that can truly fuel your soul. I hope that Marie’s book can be a source of inspiration on that journey – know that you have our little team in your corner cheering you on!

  45. Theresa Forster

    OMGOSH!! made me CRY Happy Tears Marie!!!! All I feel is JOY for you! Congratulations!! Thank you for being such an inspiration, for being your most authentic badass self, an example of leaning into what you love to do the Most and sharing it with the world. We are all better because of it. As a B-Schooler and Biggest Fan THANKS AGAIN xoxo

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much, Theresa! Big love to you from all of us! ❤️ xo

  46. OMG! I cannot wait to see you in London in October.
    You asked above if we felt we weren’t ready for a big project. Yep, that’s me all the time. Well, I know I can DO it, I just keep coming up against brick walls. I’m almost frozen in front of my laptop. I know I KNOW my stuff but something gets in my way. Something is saying I’m not ready yet but I’m not sure why that is.

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Sarah, I so hear you and I know so many people in our audience can relate to feeling frozen when facing big projects. Although sometimes there are legitimately things that we need to do or prepare for before starting, other times the only thing holding us back is ourselves.

      We did a great episode a while back about starting before you’re ready, so I thought I might pass that along for a few tips and nuggets of wisdom: https://www.marieforleo.com/2017/03/getting-started/

      I hope you enjoy that episode, and we can’t wait to see you in London!

  47. Marie, congrats to you, and your team on pulling off the most amazing book launch party that I’ve ever seen!

    It was such an honour to be there to support you and this important book that everyone NEEDS to read. I’m already on my third read, and can’t wait to share it with all my friends, followers and community. Getting excited for B-School 2020! Many blessings for safe and successful rest of your book tour 🙂

  48. Just finished #everythingisfigureoutable…moved, motivated, inspired, and determined to make waves, create change, heal, create, share, give, and contribute to others!!! Marie Forleo thank you for sharing your gift <3
    Xo,
    B-schooler

  49. Linda Tinson

    I can’t wait to see the video of thr concert. I was you last night in Chicago (Naperville) and I so enjoyed both you and Lovie sharing and the Q+A. That you for having “heart!”

  50. The show was AMAZING! I was so excited to see it, and I LOVE seeing the behind the scenes. As a producer of bodybuilding shows I know all the hours and hours of work that goes into a production. Thank you for always showing us it all! And I LOVE THE BOOK! I can’t wait to see you again in my hometown of LA this Friday night.

  51. Wendi Buick

    So excited for you. Your journey brought me to tears. I wanted to see the whole dance routine. Thanks for sharing. I love your work and all that you bring with you and all that you have taught so many of us. Keep on Rockin’.

  52. Marie!! wow!!! Congrats!!!
    When are you coming to Latin America!!!! You have fans down here. We are all loving your book and talking about in in social media.
    Many of us speak English so language is not a problem .. and we can figure it out for those who prefer a translation 😉
    Thanks for all you do.
    XOXO
    Patricia

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for your note, Patricia. While we aren’t planning a trip to Latin America on this tour, we absolutely love our Latin American fans and we’ll definitely let everyone know where we’ll be for any future worldwide events!

  53. I’ve done a few things in life others said were impossible. Love made me start, and love drove me to bring it to completion. I feel when one takes an inspired action out of LOVE, he or she is carried by the river of the energy and intelligence of LIFE.
    I often ask myself the question Marie asked in this video, “Why can’t I just do a regular book tour?” Only I say why can’t I do what all the “normal” people do? But alas – I am not normal, and I love the loony that I am!
    Now I am starting my new transformational coaching practice at 59. And, even though I so much to share, I am not sure that I have what it takes to attract my peeps – time, money, and energy. I will keep going and enjoy the suspense 🙂 Plus – with brilliant Marie on my/our side – it’ll be fun!

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Yes, Nella! It’s so important to look at what really lights us and fuels us up, regardless of what everyone else is doing. “Normal” is so often overrated 🙂

      I love your note about how you’ll keep going and enjoy the suspense. That’s such a great way of looking at it, and we’re cheering you on as you’re building your coaching practice!

  54. Yamile Soto

    AHHHH!!!! I love you Marie. This is so awesome. I know that one day I will have the chance to see you live. I can’t wait to dig into your book. You keep being amazing.

  55. AMAZING, Marie!!! You’re such an inspiration! Success for your book and the tour. Can’t wait to read it 🙂

  56. Thanks for sharing both concerns, tears and bliss! I loved the honesty – congratulations on your book and tour.
    Kristina

  57. Mellisha Fehr

    Tears tear down fear! I feel like I connected to the emotional journey of your incredible vision–wow!! My coffee’s a bit salty this am but my heart is full of sweet inspiration. Congratulations and safe travels!

  58. Mitzi Sinnott

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!! YOU mos def figured it out. Wishing you all the best with this tour. You’re such a giving, caring and creative person. I have so much respect for the way you make sure we have what we need. Thank you!
    P.S. I know JLo is proud 😉

  59. Lisa

    Sooooo moving, Marie!

    The process video had me tearing up with the love and passion that went into that show. I’m really bummed that I won’t be able to see you in your glorious show. In the mean time, I’m on my second run of the book and I’m slowly getting through the exercises.

    I remember a time in middle school, I decided to try out for a play. I immediately started prepping and doing my best to memorize the two monologues needed for the audition. It wasn’t until the day of the audition that I realized I soo wasn’t ready. But I went into the audition and did my best, even though I stumbled badly here and there. I got a small part and ended up having a great time. (My time I started before I was ready.)

    I look forward to seeing the next part and thank you for sharing this incredible belief and book!

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for commenting and for sharing your “start before you’re ready” story, Lisa! We’re so glad you’re enjoying Marie’s book, and we can’t wait to share more great “behind the scenes” with you soon!

  60. No More Limitation … No More Small … I AM HUGE!!!
    I have struggled my whole life with limited thinking and hesitation … my dreams have always been huge … EPIC really. But I have faltered with execution because of the voices around and within me that said I am not equipped, not strong and not enough.
    I am a psychotherapist who is power-filled with purpose for those within my sphere of influence to maximize their potential and execute their vision of greatness for their own lives. I hear their stories of success and achievement and gratitude for what I have been able to push them toward. And I applaud their triumphs with every fiber of my being. Nothing gives me greater joy than to use my gifts and talents to push people forward.
    It is this deeply embedded desire to see people prosper that has always moved me. I am currently launching a new program called Trauma Transformation: Turning Trauma Into Triumph and I know this is within my wheelhouse of expertise and experience to execute for others.
    My problem is that I have never really maximized or even really tapped into, this power for my own self.
    Recently, I have begun to push myself to believe that I can in fact be bigger … do more … not just for others but also for myself. And I’ll be honest, this actually scares me a little. I don’t know how to get what is in my head out in this world but I feel like I am about to give birth to my own personal dream … It is in the birthing chamber and I am determined to push it out and let the vision fully express itself.
    Thank you for the inspiration to push forward, in spite of my fear … Everything Is Indeed Figuroutable and this must start with me removing all limitation, small-mindedness and little thinking.
    I am Grateful, I am Humbled, I am Ready!!!

      YESS!! Go, Kimberly!

  61. Oh.My.God. I have literally been dreaming about how to involve dance and performance into my blooming career in self-development! Watching this video connected me with my dreams again in such an amazing way! Thank you for doing this!
    I think this is one of the things I thought would be impossible, finding the way to bring those two together, but you did it!

  62. Roberta

    I had goosebumps and tears in my eyes watching this video. I;ve been a fan for a while and to see you go through this was almost personal! Thank you for sharing and inspiring! I’m going to look for the audio version of your book now!

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Oh thank you so much for your sweet note, Roberta. We’re so glad you enjoyed this video, and I hope you love checking out Marie’s book!

  63. Rosana

    Go big or go home!! That was awesome!

  64. Lucienne

    Blown away!

  65. I wish you’d come out to NC! Would love to see you out there!

  66. Hi Marie! So cool and inspirational! I have a big dream and big doubts – I really appreciate the encouragement and realism you share. Teaching people how to think and manage emotions in a purposeful way is my dream – we have the power. I envision providing education and instruction to veterans and youth to help them lift their lives by lifting their thoughts. I avoid working on the dream to avoid feeling like I want to throw up, but that is probably how I should feel. Thanks for showing how it’s done to make the dream a reality!

  67. lisbeth

    well first as a producer, it is only natural for me to think…what was the budget?!!! and your time line for producing….
    as a business person and a consumer of your content, indeed I think your approach to creating an EXPERIENCE (as digital takes us away from that in my view), was killer spot on and to DISRUPT the definition of what a “book launch” is, spectacular! Your raise the bar and indeed you take another step in creating your distinction in a somewhat crowded marketplace (sorry I can’t help but have a bit of a biz head on as I respond; it’s just me)……..

    I also think your description of your approach is quite apt; where TED TALKS meets Beyonce….And you didn’t do any SELLING in the promo which made it very cool, you just let us be, observe, FEEL what might be coming with the experience (which i am sorry I missed but do have the book and aligned with your October digital guidance event).
    So I say Bravo to you in taking on something different, expensive clearly and executing at least this backstage pass and what I am certain was a stellar experience and response. But you release this now, after the launch? Is there a reason you didn’t do it before? And of course it gives all an inside view to just HOW HUMAN you are (which I think GB also does a great job of)….giving a touchable sense of feel to you are no different than those you are speaking to……
    For me, it made me curious of how the entire EXPERIENCE played out (that is indeed consumer and biz head in me too:))). I would be interested to see if you inspire others in your own /similar area of teachings and other authors to ignite a similar strategy!
    I do think if I had any idea this would be more than the average book launch, it would have inspired a “I need to be here” thought process…not only for the learning but the FUN and perhaps REALLY feeling an ALIGNED ENERGY IN THE ROOM WITH STRANGERS (which i find lacks in many things like this, or even lectures…where souls are supposedly coming together for like minded thinking).

    BRAVO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just started the book too…………

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for your note, Lisbeth! It must be fun to check this out as a producer yourself – we totally understand having a “biz head” on 🙂

      Regarding your question, this particular video was meant to be a fun reflection of the experience after the event actually happened. We definitely shouted out about the Experience over the summer as we geared up to the event too.

      We’re so glad you enjoyed checking out our event “behind the scenes,” and can’t wait to see you in our Immersion Program next month!

  68. “Even during the toughest moments, this concert experience has been one of the most creatively rewarding projects of my life. It allowed me to express all of me in a way I never thought I could. ”

    YESSS!! MARIE, YOU WERE INCREDIBLE. I’m sooo happy I made the trip in to experience the show live. I’ve been loving the behind-the-scenes of the book & tour – SO much gold from a marketing & sales perspective – and have been soaking up every nugget of wisdom & inspiration. JUST INCREDIBLE. Congratulations! <3

  69. ML

    This video got me even more excited to go see Marie on her book tour in rainy Seattle tonite!

  70. So excited to see this!!!!!!
    I’m about 50% through the book, and today, my website and Reinvention Mentorship offer officially launched! So… I am FEELING the Launch-ness!
    <3 Thank you for all that you do.

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      YES! Get that launch-ness, Katy-Rose! 🙂

  71. Jawdropping. Wow!

  72. chava

    So beautiful Marie and team. Inspiring. Thank you for sharing your experience with us…

  73. Maria
    Grateful for your beauty, your elegance, for your willingness to show you. To engage us, all of us with your whole heart. You took me into my own life to re-evaluate who I can be
    Love
    B

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Beautiful, B! Thank you so much for your lovely note ❤️

  74. Meredith

    Wow, that was so exciting to see and I had tears in my eyes thinking about that dream coming true for you, Marie! Can’t wait to see more! You are a light that shines everywhere you go! Thank you for sharing your positivity, love and gifts with the world!

  75. So amazing. Thank you for sharing. I have a really huge idea in my heart. I can see it there but have been questioning whether it will live and thrive outside in the world. I am encouraged by your tenacity and transparency.

  76. Amyjune

    Um, yes. YES. YAAAAAAAAS! You are the most real of any of the coaches, etc., I’ve ever seen. (Up there with the Dalai Lama who shared his own true negtive emotions before their practical resolution, in talks published by Paul Eckman, PhD. Even better to see you in video, capturing it all.)
    Thank you for taking out the remote guru vibe and being with us here on earth, STILL making it happen!

  77. Carrie

    You are so inspiring Marie! Keep shining!!!!!

    Okay, doing the hard work here….re questions:

    1. Have you ever felt like you weren’t ready to start a big project? YES. What helped to get moving? Talking to a teammate about what we’re about to do, hearing her vision about dropping the BS and focusing on getting the work done

    2. Is there something you’re afraid to do right now? YES. Following up with customers. What’s one small step you can take to get moving? Start with one. When done, congratulate myself, let the feeling of being DONE sink in!

    • Caroline - Team Forleo

      Big YES to diving in and doing the hard work, Carrie! Please do feel free to leave a note here when you’ve followed up with that one customer so we can cheer you on 🙂 You got this!

  78. Sue Dempsey

    I SO identified with the initial self-questioning, “Why did I have to go over the top? Why couldn’t I just do the normal thing?!” I do that with all our parties. I think creatives get a vision of what would be AMAZING, that few other people get, or if they do, they don’t act on. It might be cobbled together from other things we’ve seen, but put our own (better!) twist on. Creatives want people to have a whole EXPERIENCE. I’m not sure what other people want when they throw a party – maybe people to admire their things? It’s like they are just checking boxes. This opening, Marie and Team, was totally outside the boxes, and so worth it! Thanks for sharing some of it with us!

    • Wow, girl. You did it! I’m just laying here bawling. I’m so proud of you! You’ve just changed the world’s concept of what a book launch can look like. So impressive. So you. So inspiring. I’m starting an interview series and am completely stuck at finding sponsors because I’ve never done it before and hate to ask for things. But here I go… because if you can do THAT, I can do this. Thanks so much for being you, and for sharing you with us. Much love and success on your tour!!!

      • Mandy - Team Forleo

        Yes, yes, YES! You got this. 🙂

  79. Mindy Barnett

    Okay, I am seriously ugly crying right now after having seen this video. A…MAY…ZING!! Thank you so much for sharing your vulnerability, tenacity, and overall kick-assed-ness with this video and with your book (which I am currently devouring). So incredibly inspiring! Much love from New Jersey! 🙂 <3

  80. Jana Kolcova

    Marie is a visionary like no other!!! Always, cooking up new ideas which always capture her innermost essence and make a positive impact on so many lives!!! Well done, you’re INVREDIBLE! 🙂 xx

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Jana! This was one of the most fun things Marie has cooked up to date. 😀

  81. Katerina

    Hi Marie and Team,

    This was amazing to watch. I can’t wait until my book order arrives.
    It’s really an inspiration to see how you can put yourself out there, and how you and your team humble yourselves in prayer.

    I always feel so vulnerable and exposed when I speak about something I’m passionate about, and I have to give a speech tomorrow which was terrifying me until I watched this video. Now I can go out there and talk about the issues I feel strongly about, knowing that it’s ok if some people don’t like it, as long as I’ve stayed true to myself and what I believe in, and as long as it has made a positive impact on some people.

    Here’s to you and your team! You all rock

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      You’re going to do GREAT, Katerina! We believe in you 🙂

  82. Love this. So nice to see how someone at your level is also vulnerable. We often forget when we see the finished product of what goes into everything we produce. Congratulations on your book launch and I wish you much success. I’m reading my copy now.
    xo,
    Tamara

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you so much, Tamara! We hope you’re loving the book. 🙂

  83. Amazing. Heartfelt. 100% full throttle. Such a thrill to be here for this event – and pumped for everyone who gets to experience the experience! Huge congrats to Marie, #teamforleo (aka best team ever), Josh, Kuma and the crew. Bring it on B-School 2020 🙂

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      We adore you! <3

  84. Rosario Neuman

    Hi Marie,
    I love your energy, your creative power; it’s contagious.
    Please don’t use bad words. I want to share some videos with my tweens. I am trying my best to be the best version of myself which entails so much of what you share.
    With love and respect.

  85. F*ck YEAH! I’m so psyched to see you tomorrow in San Francisco! You are amazing and thank you for your book. It’s already changing me in fabulous ways! Love to you and your team! XOXOXO

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      YAY, Dana! We can’t wait to see you in SF!

  86. Thank you for sharing the rawness of your experience, Marie. It evoked my own emotions about being stuck inside my head, desperately wanting to breakout from obscurity into greater service to share my gifts with others. I am trying to put language to the results that I deliver in my work and that is where I am stuck.

  87. Love this behind the scenes look! Marie you are a rock star. Kick ass on the tour!!! And to echo what other people are saying I would pay to see a video of one of the tour stops.
    Good luck on the tour Marie & Team!
    xoxo – Jenn

  88. Kristina Johnson

    I just finally started my own social media management company! It is just me and I have been wanting to do this for about the 8 years I have been doing social media for. It is really scary and I am struggling with getting my website up and running, but I have three clients in Vegas and Denver (where I am) and it is also really rewarding! I have always love Marie and her wisdom and guidance so pre-ordering “Everything is Figureoutable” was a no-brainer. I cannot wait to really dive into it, as I am only on chapter 2 and am already obsessed. I know that I can figure out this website that is currently the death of me and I will have many more clients in the future. Thanks so much Marie, you really do change lives! <3 Kristina Johnson, Denver, CO.

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Congrats on starting your business, Kristina! That’s so exciting and we’re thrilled you’re already reading the book! 🙂

  89. Was FUCKING amazing! My Baller ticket, on the first row, all the knowledge spread on this event and the opportunity to meet Marie was the best investment that I did both on myself and on my business. Thank you for this! It was worth flying from San Francisco for this experience!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you SO much, Krystel! We’re honored you flew across the country. It was an honor to meet you and share the magic with you! 🙂

  90. OMG Marie, I can’t tell you HOW MUCH this video moved my heart and soul!! I’m so proud of you and I’m so grateful you went ALL OUT for this incredible launch. You did it your way and you demo-ing that shows how it can be done anyway. Thank you for living into a BIG vision because it is scary….and totally figureoutable! Love you! – Meg

  91. I own an event company and I am always trying to let our craziest ideas fly. We re constantly figuring things out, pushing ourselves and our vendors. I constantly lie awake wondering if we can actually execute our ideas. Butterflies have made a permanent home in my stomach! The thrill of seeing the finished product come to life makes it all worth while. Thank you Marie & Team Forleo for the daily dose of encouragement, guidance and now…this magical performance! Anything is possible and everything is figureoutable (sometimes you make mistakes – but that’s how we figure it out for the next time)!

  92. Megan Fitzgerald

    Fantastic Marie! Congratulations on the launch. My book arrived yesterday and I couldn’t be more excited. This experience looked amazing – you go, girl! Not only do you talk the talk but you dance the dance! LOL! Thank you for sharing YOUR special gift with us and letting us in. Everything is indeed figureoutable! xoxo

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Dance the dance – love it! We appreciate you and are so happy Marie’s work speaks to you.

  93. Oh Marie! You did so great! I can’t wait to see the video in the future. I’ve been reading my copy of Everything is Figureoutable. I love how real you always are. Thank you for sharing.

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      We’re so happy you’re already diving in! 😀

  94. Lori

    Wow! Even through your unplugged account of your event, I feel PUMPED UP! I hope it is out on video at some point!

    For me, I am really trying to stretch and reach…more, people, more resources, more outlets, even though there are obstacles (mainly in getting my kiddos to school, soccer practices, soccer games, etc) I am learning to reach out to my community for car pool opportunities. I have always figured out and done everything myself, but now I al learning to reach out to others for help (I do not live near extended family). I have planned 3 business trips in 6 weeks, and know in my heart that the details are all figureoutable! I am well into the new book, too, which is also pumping me up for great things in my future! Thank you, Marie!

  95. Let me know if you come to Costa Rica. I’m going to stop talking about my online course and just do it. I’ll figure it out.

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      We’re cheering you on, Laurel!

  96. Just off the charts Marie!! you are so damn brave, it’s breathtaking, game changing and so inspiring!! I’m on the waitlist for London – I think a new venue was a possibility?? I have used the mantra everything is figureoutable since I first heard you say it in 2012 – it’s one of the quote posters on the walls at my holistic well being venue here in Scotland which I opened in 2014 as I embarked on B school because I used it throughout the entire project to overcome the obstacles that come with any project – now I’m diving deeply into this book as I realise I’ve more limiting beliefs to smash!! thank you dear one and shine shine on xx Love Bernadette P x

  97. Marie, you are such an inspiration! What a beautiful way of sharing thoughts about life! I love how you think out of the box and DO what you dream up! I am on the verge of opening some doors in my own life and it does give me an insight. I bought the book, have watched your shows over the years and appreciate who you are and how you are. I am 70 going on beginning a whole new chapter in my life and I look forward to out of the box approaches to it all! Many blessings to you.

    xoxo Shelley

  98. Marie,
    Thank you for showing up. For never giving up. For putting up. For leveling up.
    Thank you for including us in the journey. For being transparent. Letting us in on the good, bad, the tears, the joy. Like you, I’ve been at this a long time and the best part is it never gets old when you have a clear intention. Always feels like we’re just scratching the surface, doesn’t it?! You are just scratching the surface Marie. xo Keep showing up in an big way. With heart. With style. With class and sass. xoxo Can’t wait to see you in LA. I will be there with my two SuperFriends and bells on. 😉

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Thank you, Allison! That was so beautifully said. We can’t wait to see you and your friends in LA! 😀

  99. Deb

    WOW how amazing and fantastic was that. Thank you so much for sharing. I have even more excitement about reading the book now. Yep I have my copy and it is the first in my reading pile for my vacation. Can’t wait.
    Congratulations Marie!
    YOU ROCK!

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Sounds like a wonderful vacation! We hope you enjoy the trip and the book. 🙂

  100. WooHuuuu!!! Awesome!
    Thank you so much for all the inspiration your catalyze in this world!!!!
    We keep going, we keep shining and we keep figuring the shit out this trip called LIFE!!!
    I have the book and am looking forward to diving into it personally and collectively.
    Thank you and your whole team!!!
    PS it’s my birthday and I am so freaking grateful that I am still here !

    • Mandy - Team Forleo

      Happy Birthday, Samira!! We hope this next year brings you everything you dream of.

  101. Alisoune Lee

    Yes! I feel like I am not able to start a big project and have not. I have everything I need to start but just can’t seem to do it. I get close, buzz around the edges, then find other things to do. I am very afraid to start and about to embark on a career change as well! All very crazy!

  102. You go Maria! It would be nice to be able to join via livestream if we are unable to go to a live event!

  103. Moved to tears to see all these people praying backstage together. Such a great little documentary of the BTS!

  104. ANS

    Ahh, love this! Halfway through and the question that comes up: What’s Marie’s general day routine–morning/nighttime?

  105. Holy smokes – you are incredibly inspiring! How Ahhh-mazing! I love that you had a huge vision, had doubts, did the work, saw it through, and found success! You developed the model for success -rock star quality for sure. Congratulations and I cannot wait to see more coverage of your tour! And I cannot wait to start reading your book!

  106. kikue

    Thank you for sharing this, indeed! I can see a raw Marie here…it pushes me on my back and tells me, yes! Everything is figureoutable!

  107. Tara Z

    So effing awesome!!!!! Great job, Marie and crew! Can’t wait to see more. 😀

  108. Hi I’m Denise I have a product but I don’t know how to launch it. Could you please help. Grateful

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      Hi Denise! I saw that you commented in the B-School Member Area as well, and our Mentor Coach Sally left some awesome feedback for you. All of us on Team Forleo are cheering you on for your new product launch! You’ve got this! 🚀💥

  109. Sharon

    Loved, loved, loved this!! Thank you so much for filming and sharing it! Hit me in every way I needed it! I’ve signed up for an event that is big for me and that thought of “Why couldn’t I just say no or not do it up so much?!” crosses my mind as we lead up to the event date. 🎉🙌💖 Dragging that book along with me everywhere too these days!

  110. This made my whole day. I’m teary-eyed and inspired and so unbelievably proud of what you’re creating in the world. ❤️🥳🤗🙌🏻

  111.

  114. Amazing. Just amazing. Behind the scenes is so important to see. It reminds us that everything is made – it doesn’t just happen. Can’t wait to see you in Melbourne. Flying in from Adelaide with a fabulous friend. So excited.

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      We completely agree! Behind the scenes moments help us realize we’re ALL humans struggling with the same fears and doubts and challenges, and it’s *all* figureoutable. We can’t wait to see you in Melbourne, Carole, and thanks for sharing your heart with us!

  115. LP

    Nothing more inspiring than seeing someone making their biggest dreams come true and sharing the experience. Congrats and thank you, Marie! Love from MN. You should add us to the tour <3

  116. Being a part of this experience is something I’ll never forget!!!! Marie was electrifying and unforgettable!!!!

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      We’re so honored and thrilled you could be there to celebrate with us, Bryce!

  117. Yes! Launching my women’s abandonment support group!

    I loved the NYC experience! Thank you so much for going above and beyond! It was you on every level!

  119. Jen

    Marie,

    I’m not sure you’ll read this, and that’s okay.

    I’ve been following you off and on for years. This video is the first video where I truly felt your heart and your vulnerability. Thank you for sharing the experience with us, including your fears and jitters and feelings.

    Keep on keeping on!

  120. Just watching what you are making possible, is making me SO excited! You are the first person I feel like I can get star truck over! This video inspires me SO much!!!! Thank you for all your work1 For putting yourself out there for everything!!!!!! I feel alive. I can’t wait to see you in Austin, TX! I love you! xoxo

  122. Just want to cry with awe. God, did you ever put on your big girl pants and get on with it. And, what a vision—-what a visionary you are. You are a blessing to planet earth in so many ways, Marie Forleo. Thank you a million trillion!

  123. Melanie Knight

    Holy shit Marie!! I so wish I could have been there. This looks incredible and life changing! Huge congrats on a massive production. You are incredible! I am LOVING listening to the audio book. Damn there is so much gold in there. Stop rewind, replay at least 6 times already. Gold! Pure gold! Thank you! T. H. A. N. K. Y. O. U.

  124. I soooo wish I could have been there! I absolutely LOVED watching this….Marie and your team… YOU ROCK!!!!! Can’t wait to be at one of your tour locations.

  125. Im so SO happy for you Marie and all the Marie TV team!!! I got tears in my eyes seeing the posters, books and banner around the theatre – you built all that!!!! Im so proud for you and grateful that you came into my life 5 years ago. I havent even read the book yet fully but have been opening a page to soothe, amuse and guide me in the last few days – just amazing, I already love it. Aaaand the coffee machine broke today on my last day at work (not the way you want to go out) so I said to myself….you guessed it… Everything is Figureoutable…and so I figured it out and fixed a commercial Coffee machine! I gotta thank the story of your Mum’s Tropicana radio for that one!! I love you all so very much 🙂 🙂 xxx

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      Aww, what a wonderful note, Rebecca! Thank you so much for these kind words to Marie and the team. We’re so grateful you’ve been enjoying the book AND it gave you the gusto to fix a commercial coffee machine –– What a cool story! Thank you for being a part of our world, and keep shining your light. 💕

  126. Tears in my eyes, heart beat pumping like crazy and inspired as WHAT! Girl you slay – keep on pushing yourself and setting the example of rising above. Thank you Marie and team for making this happen. Kisses and love from Amsterdam!

  127. Brava, Queen and Team Forleo!

  128. David Naidu

    As usual you have everything figured out Marie, hope your ever flowing blessings and abundances are showered on the less fortunate too. Much love and appreciation.

  129. Thank you for sharing the behind the scenes look. It shows how much work and preparation goes into an event like this.
    I LOVED IT. I too would be grateful for the full version of this production 🙂
    I was smiling all the way through thinking about how far Marie and her team have come. What an achievement.
    I can’t wait for Sydney, Australia…Ill be there with bells on.

  130. Phenomenal! Congrats to Marie and Team M xxxx

  131. Katerina

    Thank you Mandy!

    I did it and it was great! 🙂 Keep being awesome! xo

  132. Hey Marie,
    I got tears in my eyes watching this. I used to be a Broadway touring performer and I’m now a stay-at-home mom who is writing a book and building a speaking and podcasting ministry. I have been questioning everything and it is just so good to watch you push through your doubt. So many of your pre-show experiences felt just like when I was on tour and getting ready for a big show. Even though the “show” of writing happens in my living room alone, it’s mentally the same preparation and second-guessing and “WHAT AM I DOING?” feeling. Thank you so much for showing me it can be done. Got my copy and cannot wait to read your book. Keep going strong lady!
    Stacey

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      Thank you so much for this note and story, Stacey! It’s so true –– whenever we begin a new creative endeavor or step out and share our hearts, SO much resistance immediately pops up. I’m not sure that ever goes away but rather we get better at recognizing it, moving through it, and using it as energy. And it absolutely can be done!

      Thank you for ordering the book, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts! We’re honored to have you in our world, Stacey.

    Congrats Marie you are such a passionate soul. I love your work and everything that comes together in the person you are. Thank you for bringing this idea to life. I have it literally taped into my office desk. EVERYTHING IS FIGURE-OUTABLE. What is not, is in God’s hands and that is to be accepted as a divine wisdom greater than ourselves. Good luck on the tour and blessings always for inspiring me SO F***ing MUCH!

  134. Kendyl

      Wonderful thoughts, Ronnie! Thanks so much for sharing your heart and dreams with us! 💕

  136. Marie, you are a-mazing! Thank you for touching my heart and inspiring me to keep putting myself out in the world.

  137. Camila Thomazelli

    OMG! You are amazing. Everything is figureoutable! Yes it is! You show this to all of us. Thank you so much for being this amazing inspiration! God bless you! Love you!

  138. This was moving, inspiration, interesting and flat out cool! I was at the Naperville/Chicago book signing on September 16. I think Marie should show this to each audience on her book tour. What a way to get everyone excited before she begins her conversation. And obviously, she is proofing the whole point of the book! Keep on doing what you’re doing! It’s showing all of us that anything is possible!

  139. Congratulations Marie! What an awesome way to celebrate your book.
    I’m a mixed media artist and create abstract/non-representational paintings. There was a series I wanted to do that I put off doing for years. I felt I didn’t have the skill level to pull it off. With the encouragement from some coaches, I took some classes that really improved my painting skills and set a date that they had to be finished for a gallery show. It feels so good to have finally completed the first set of figurative abstract paintings. I wasted so much time being fearful, believing that I couldn’t d0 it. Now, I can’t wait to begin the next set of paintings. Lesson learned: just dive in.

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      Wow! What an incredible story of embracing the figureoutable mindset. Way to go, Karen! We’re so glad to hear you found the strength to share your paintings with the world, and we can’t wait to hear about your future success. Thank you for sharing your heart with us! 💕🎨

  140. This is so amazing Marie! I am incredibly happy and proud of you.
    I have been watching your videos for years now and am so motivated by you. You are a true beacon and model to us all, for not being afraid to show and give your own special gift to the world.
    I wish you all the happiness and success life may bring.

    Andrene

  141. Marie, you are my spirit animal!! I am so freakin’ inspired by your rock-star/TED talk book launch. WHAT!!!! I now have a new vision for my own book launch. . .

  142. Marie & team – this looks so amazing! I can’t wait to see you next week in Austin, Texas! As always, thank you for inspiring others to go for their dreams. 🙂

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      Thank YOU, Misty, for these kind words to Marie and Team Forleo. We’re delighted we’ll be seeing you in Texas next week, and thank you for being a part of our world! 💕

  143. SO INSPIRING. I Love You!

  144. Congratsssss:)) You really ROCK Lady!! Amazing HOW WHAT and WHY you do things… Thank you so much for sharing:))

  145. That was very inspiring! I’m in tears. I’m trying to put forth a creative project, what I’m calling my Think Big project as a writer (and more). I have an endorsement for the book series I’m writing. I have garnered help and talent in development. But I have to raise some funds to finish developing it. And I need more time to spend on it! I have paid client writing as well, two teenage boys, band rehearsals. I try to do at least one small thing a day to forward it, even small.

    But I don’t know how to speed up the process, and the launch is time-sensitive. Help!

    And the Think Big is continually terrifying, but in a good way. I was raised NOT to rise above my mother, to not do anything that might make her nervous or anything that I thought my parents might disapprove of. And a lot of times I was left, as a child, to try to interpret what they would accept and love me for or disapprove of, because they were conflict-avoidant and passive aggressive. The rules were implied, not stated. And somehow I internalized that doing unapproved of things would somehow hurt my mother. It’s powerful stuff that I’ve worked for years to Un-educate myself from.

    I’m late to the Marie Forleo of today. I have a couple of your exercise DVDs that I used to dance to. I’m glad I rediscovered you and your wonderful work.

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      Hi Linda,
      Thank you so much for sharing these kind words with Marie! We’re honored you took the time to share your heart and story with us. And how cool is it that you have Marie’s workout DVDs?! Yaas!
      All of us on Team Forleo are cheering you on as you move forward on your latest project. Please know that it absolutely IS figureoutable, and you’re doing important work.
      One of my favorite MarieTV episodes is with Kate Northrup, and she talks about how her productivity increased when she made a conscious decision to “do less” https://www.marieforleo.com/2019/06/kate-northrup-do-less/ Hopefully it’s inspiring to you, too!
      Thank you for being a part of our world, Linda!

  146. Renee

    MARIEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    Omfg, that was just supercalafragilisticexpialodocious! Let me find out you’ve got a Netflix 3-part special releasing soon.

    Once again, you’ve turned that starter in my back and I’m revved up…I sometimes lose momentum or fear attacks when there are setbacks or I’m unable to always see the path and gosh I can’t even begin to share just how capable and how it’s truly within me.

    You & the team that you’ve built; continue to show that Everything is Figureoutable.

    Thanks ya’ll

  147. Janet Marie Petty

    9-18-2019 Just viewed this preview tonight! So AMAZING.
    If anyone could pull all this together insect a short period of time it’s you.
    I like soo many comments before me, hope the NY show was recored and that we will get to see it in full at some point, whether I get the opportunity to see a production near me hear in San Jose, CA. or where ever in California. Its FIGUREOUTABLE right.
    I am in chapter 4 of the book and am savoring every word and have highlights galore going on. I am looking forward to the October class. xoxo Janet Marie Petty

    I’m first a visual audio learner, creative, so I really desire to see the whole production.
    I am in chapter 4 of the book now and am savoring every word with highlights galore going on. I am also looking forward to the October class. xoxo Janet Marie Petty

  149. Wow what a moment! What a vision and just can’t imagine how that whole experience must have felt. You’ve just convinced me to make it to Brisbane now if it’s not sold out!

  150. Tricia Woods

    I really loved watching this. You ARE BEYONCE and beyond!!

  151. WOW!!! Thank you Marie for taking us behind the scenes and sharing the hard work, tears and sweat it took to make your vision become reality. Watching you pray with your team, saying Heavenly Father, pouring your heart out really touched my heart and made me cry. Even as successful as you are, the kindness, love & reverence you showed, was, well, awesome and relatable. You have shown everything is ‘Figureoutable’ with not just gut wrenching hard work, and an amazing team, but God’s help as well.
    I LOVE your book, its just an incredible extension of your podcasts, but Now I can underline things you have shared.
    I’m new to your community, and I love what I see and feel. B-school looks like something I would love to be a part of.
    So happy for your much deserved success! Thank you for doing what you did…following the still small voice that told you Wall Street wasn’t what you were destined to do❤️
    Well wishes always,
    Nicole McBeth

  152. Lagrima Klein

    This made me tear up. Wonderful! Beyonce+ TED talk!! I Salute Team Forleo!!! Would love to get to see the full show some time. Uganda is a little far to travel for a show! 🙂
    Thank you for being an inspiration!

  153. Literally had me in tears (could be the pregnancy hormones) but I LOVED everything about this! And am so freakin proud of you for living out what was in your heart and inspiring so many others of us to do the same! Thank you!!! XO

    • Same here Alicia and I’m not pregnant!
      Watched it twice, cried twice 🙂
      These are power tears, we feel we can follow the same pathway!!

  154. OMG, watching it for the second time today.
    I wanted a little inspiraction injection 😉
    Killer!
    Do we get some dancing/show/performance in London?? Can’t wait to be there 😉
    All the best

  155. Diana

    Wow Marie- You go girl! That’s what I’m talking about- never thought this would be done for a book tour-you fires it up! Since I was unable to see you:( as tics were sold out- ever consider offering it on-line for purchase after tours are done?

  156. I am taking bridal and special event hairstyling on line as an indie educator at 58! I have cried, suffered hives for months, many doubts, and highs. I was on line back in 1998 with weddinghair.com and took a season off from 2005 to 2015 to live and work at residential rehabs for my husbands mental health career. When we left residential to start his private practice I told my husband I was not getting a job but that I going back on line and figuring out how to make our passions work in the digital world. I have had to figure out much at many levels. We have been quoting your title to each other for years now because you were one of the first online people I discovered and I made him watch you lol! We say it every time we have something new to learn. I am so proud of you and you being true to your word and showing us it can be done. More and more blessings to you and your hubby, thank you Marie!

  157. I want to see a video of the full event! This is so great!

  158. First, Thank YOU for your transparency, honesty, sharing your fear, your feelings before the show, so all of us know, when we have these feelings, so do you – and others.
    Second, Wow, hat’s off to you for your creativity, initiative, self-expression, and thinking outside of the box for the introduction of your book and tour.
    The seconds of the actual performance were a teaser, but I have to say I was disappointed to not see more. I am not in an area close to the places you tour, and I would love to see more of the performance/presentation (such a buildup!), so I hope you will release a video sometime so we can all appreciate it. Thanks again.

  159. Thank you for sharing your experience, strength and hope! It’s so inspirational and moving and motivating. I desire to contribute my vision to the world before I die in a way that inspires, moves and motivates people to live more authentic, loving, connected lives. My talents lie in writing and education, and I share my vision with individuals and groups using both of these modes. I am coming to your online experience (your event in Houston was sold out before I could claim my ticket!) ready to take my vision of deep education and belonging to the next level. As William Shakespeare says in Hamlet, “The readiness is all.” Thank you, again, Marie! (P.S. How is it that I have known about your work since 1998?! 20 years! I opened an old journal recently and saw your name written down on the page and just couldn’t believe it). God bless you and keep you. xo

    • Sarah - Team Forleo

      Amazing, Christa! Thank you, truly, for being with us all these years. We can’t wait to share the Immersion Program with you soon ❤

  160. I’m so fucking inspired. Marie you are breaking the mold and I love it. Also dropping an F-bomb in a prayer. I’m here for it.

  161. WAY TO GO GIRL!!!!!! Marie, I used to be a hip hop choreographer for my dance team back in Florida and now I work with women in outdoor adventure in across the world while based in a remote part of Canada. The dance never left me and I resonate so strongly with how you still hold on to your dance background while pushing forward in that entrepreneurial spirit.

    I love this mashup of the two and now my wheels are spinning — rock climbing hip hop? Dancing for better ski moves on the slopes? ha. Girl, keep that creative energy and young spirit. We’re feeding off your vibe!

    • Evelien Maes

      Exactly! I’m a dance teacher too, and somehow I always thought ‘ah, she’s an entrepreneur now, not a dancer anymore’. I myself struggle with the question of moving into a new direction or not, but this video blew my mind. Marie really created something where everything she is and does comes together. It’s amazing. I hope you figure out your rock climbing hip hop :P! She proved it’s definitely figureoutable ;)!

  162. Kay Lasley

    Marie ..
    So valuable sharing what all goes into producing excellence in difficult situations. It should go into a training module which you will probably do.
    Keep self-care and emotional support in focus. Your can do nothing without Him.. Continue to abide in Him. He will give you strength. Blessings – Dr. Kay

  163. Evelien Maes

    Holy sh*********t!!! Seriously!!! I’m so impressed by your vision and willpower. I look at this, and realize that my own vision is still so narrow, really limiting beliefs. This is such delightful kick in the but, I can just feel the energy popping of the screen. Marie, your honesty, vulnerability and your willpower are truly a gift. And not just for you :). Enjoy the tour!

  164. Susana Karlen

    Marie, Thank you – Gracias. I’ve been listening to you on my daily walks. Great messages, inspirational and just overall boost. BTW, much needed for this chapter in my life. I see the next chapter and guess what? Is Figureoutable!! Received my book yesterday AND I do have what it takes.

    • Julia - Team Forleo

      YES, Susana! We absolutely love everything about this. So glad that this message and the book have reached you at the perfect season in your life. You can totally figure this out – we believe in you. Enjoy diving into the book and please keep us posted! XOXO

  165. I wish SOOOO much that I could have seen this! I got tears in my eyes watching this video because I know how much heart, soul, wisdom and love you put into everything you do. PLEASE bring this on tour. FOR REAL! Nashville needs this! XOXOX

  166. paddy faller

    You are an absolute inspiration to all of us!

  167. Tanisha

    Marie! I hope you “figure out” how to bring this to multiple people, in multiple cities. Would buy my ticket immediately if you brought this show to California!

  168. Simone

    That is an amazing way to launch your new book. Congratulations!!!❤ Thank you for sharing. You are an inspiration, Marie. 😘
    XoXo

  169. Marie, you illustrate here in such a beautiful and powerful way how everything is figureoutable ! And I definitely want to watch the show. Thanks for the great source of inspiration that you are.

  170. Good for you Marie! It’s funny, I had the same vision a few years ago. Only with me singing too. And it will happen. Because everything is figureoutable.😊 Great book. Great message. Keep killing it and don’t quit.

    • Renee – Team Forleo

      It will definitely happen, Irene! If it’s possible for Marie, it’s possible for you too. Keep shining (and singing!) your light, and we can’t wait to see what you create. 🎶

  171. I’m a 4th-grade teacher in my 14th year of teaching. I’m currently working towards my Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction. I’ve applied to every district in my area to be a coach for teachers, but no one will hire me!! After reading your book and watching your videos, it came to me. Why not just open a coaching business myself? Why not be my own boss and take matters into my own hands? I’ve struggled with negative self-esteem for so long that I doubt my abilities to get this business up and running. The only way I can do that is to leave my classroom job and take the leap into purchasing a space to hold my training. Will it work out? Will my family struggle because I’m being selfish and quitting something that’s guaranteed a paycheck? Your book has given me the strength to at least try!!
