Are you feeling lost, stuck, or like you’re not where you want to be in life? Trust me, you’re not alone. I’ve been there, too.

I felt like the BIGGEST loser in my 20s. And spent my 30s constantly feeling behind. But I’ve learned some powerful lessons along the way.

In today’s MarieTV, I’m sharing the big life lessons I wish I knew sooner, including:

  • How to QUIT your way to success
  • Why I spent over $20,000 on courses (and whether it was worth it!)
  • 3 steps to achieve anything (even if you’re a hot mess right now!)
  • Want to improve your life? Do THIS now
  • Why looking successful doesn’t make you successful
  • The EASY way to stand out and get ahead
  • 3 success habits of the Top 1%
  • How to flip your focus and get what you really want

DIVE DEEPER: Should you quit or commit? Use these 2 strategies to decide.

What if you could start and scale your freedom business… in just 30 days? Well, this summer you CAN! We’ve got a summer fast track round of our world-class B-School program kicking off on July 16th.

B-School has helped over 80,000 people start and grow profitable, kick-ass businesses. And now it’s your turn. Go to to get on the waitlist and learn more.

Here’s a quick recap of the five life lessons I share in today’s episode. 

1. Quitters DO Win

Oh my goodness, I QUIT so many things in my early days. I quit an engagement, multiple “dream jobs,” and even turned down a job at Vogue to start my own business. I felt awful inside about quitting and worried I had serious commitment issues.

But here’s the truth: my soul was simply NOT willing to settle for a mediocre life — a life where I felt DEAD inside.

No matter what age you are, DO NOT SETTLE for anything less than what you’re capable of. Once I started building what was right for me, I didn’t want to quit anymore. I had finally found my calling, and even in the toughest moments, I never wanted to quit.

2. Bet on Yourself and INVEST in Yourself

After college, I was deep in debt and miserable. But I never stopped investing in my education. From coach training to public speaking classes, I prioritized my personal and professional growth.

The education I pieced together turned out to be priceless! It helped me develop high-paying skills that made me more valuable in the marketplace and ultimately led to my freedom.

3. You Can BE A MESS while Building Success

The road to mega success isn’t cute or organized. Some of the most successful people, including myself, spent years living like a mess while building something great. I slept on a blow-up mattress in my friend’s tiny living room because I had NO money.

But I stayed focused on what mattered: developing my skills, growing my network, and keeping my eye on the prize. You don’t have to have your life together to build towards success. Work, learn, and serve — wash, rinse, repeat!

4. Learn from People Who Have the Kind of Success You Want

When I was coming up, I learned from books, seminars, and mentors who had the kind of success I wanted. Choose mentors who align with your values and vision. Their influence will shape your thinking, behavior, and ultimately, your life.

5. Put Yourself in the Top 1%

I’ve never been the sharpest tool in the shed, but I’ve always focused on getting the fundamentals right. So many people are distracted and unfocused, but if you do a handful of simple things consistently, you’ll rise to the top.

Show up early, stay a little later, and appreciate the people around you. These simple actions will make you stand out and help you achieve top performance.

Bonus Lesson: The World Gives to the Givers

If your primary focus is on what you can get out of life, you’ll hit a wall. Instead, focus on how you can serve. Use your gifts and energy to solve problems and bring joy to others. This will always come back to you tenfold.

Now, it’s your turn.

What life lesson do YOU wish you’d learned sooner? What advice would you give to your younger self?

Remember, the world needs that very special gift that only YOU have. Stay on your game and keep going for your big dreams!

With all my love,
