A born-and-raised Jersey girl with nothing more than passion, a laptop and a dream, I’m proud to have created a digital empire that touches millions.
Through our award-winning show MarieTV and The Marie Forleo Podcast, world-class online training programs, a #1 New York Times bestselling book and an audience in 195 countries, I help people like you dream big and back it up with meaningful action.
In fact, here are a few ways I might be able to help.
- Want to build a business but don’t have an MBA, a fat bank account, or a clue where to start? I’ll give you the roadmap to your dream business.
- Have ideas, creations, and gifts to share with the world, but can’t seem to get people to pay attention? I’ll help you find your voice and get results.
- Crave more freedom, flexibility, and joy in your life — but can’t seem to escape toxic overwork and overwhelm? I’ll show you the path to time freedom.
I wasn’t born knowing how to do any of this. It wasn’t fancy degrees or family money or connections that landed me on Oprah’s stage or the cover of Success magazine. In fact, I was deep in debt when I started out!
I grew up in New Jersey, in a modest Italian-American home with plastic covered couches. But when I was little, my mom taught me something that defined my whole life.
“Everything is Figureoutable.”
Meaning, there is nothing in life that you can’t experience, achieve, transform or transcend -— as long as you’re willing to roll up your sleeves, get in there, and go for it.
“Everything is Figureoutable” is not only the title of my #1 New York Times bestselling book. It’s the mantra I live by, and the key to a joyful, prosperous, freedom-rich life.
My mission is to help you embrace that belief, and give you the training, tools, and support you need to get everything you want, and then some.
People always ask, “Marie, how on earth did you get started in all this?"
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been insatiably curious about human potential. I wanted to know, what exactly is it that makes people genuinely happy, successful and creatively fulfilled? Why do some people struggle while others find a way to thrive, often despite the most challenging circumstances?
I was also passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected things: writing, hip-hop, psychology, entrepreneurship, creativity, spirituality, fitness and philanthropy, just to name a few.
After several failed attempts at corporate jobs and a lot of angst trying to choose just one thing to be in life, I realized that my unusual combination of interests and skills was a strength, not a liability.
So I gave up the security of the 9-5, began bartending and waiting tables and doing a multitude of odd jobs to keep a roof over my head while slowly building a coaching business from the ground up.
I later coined the term "Multipassionate Entrepreneur" because I didn’t (and never will) fit into a conventional box.
