Before you say “good riddance!” to 2020, slow down and listen up. This is important.
I have some big news to share that’ll help you have more clarity, confidence, resilience, and success in the new year.
It has a lot to do with what my mom used to tell me as a little girl growing up in Jersey.
"Marie, nothing in life is that complicated,” she’d say from halfway under the sink as she fixed a leak. “You can do whatever you set your mind to if you roll up your sleeves. Everything is figureoutable."
I talk about this a lot. Everything is figureoutable was the theme of my Oprah talk and the title of my #1 NY Times Bestseller. Why do I keep harping on about it?
Because if you're having trouble solving a problem or reaching a dream, the problem isn't you. And it’s not the dumpster fire of 2020, either — truly. It's that you haven't yet installed this one belief that changes everything.
So here’s the big, exciting news:
The paperback edition of my bestselling book, Everything is Figureoutable, just launched today!
It’s hard to believe that one year ago, my team and I were in New York City doing the book launch to end all book launches. We had a massive event in NYC that kicked off a world tour with in-person gatherings around the globe. How the world has changed.
The Paperback Cover Reveal: New Look, Same Unstoppable Results
When we first released Everything is Figureoutable, I wanted the cover to be powerful, fresh, and exciting.
It took hundreds of hours collaborating with my team and the publisher to create the hardcover design you know and love. We even released a behind-the-scenes MarieTV all about the design process.
When it came to launching the paperback, we had a choice.
Stick to the original? Or create a whole new design?
You know me — I couldn’t resist a challenge, and I’m thrilled with the result.
Now, you may know that the words “everything is figureoutable” came from my mother’s little Tropicana orange radio. As a little girl, I knew I could find her somewhere around the house by listening for the tinny sound coming from that radio.
This radio became a symbol for me — that everything really is figureoutable — and, since the launch of this book, thousands of you have adopted it as a symbol for yourselves.
This past year I’ve needed the “everything is figureoutable” mantra more than ever. Even as I write this, I’m still recovering from an emergency hysterectomy that I definitely didn’t see coming.
But you know what this year of uncertainty, crisis, and change has taught me? What my team, our community, and YOU have shown me again and again?
That everything really is figureoutable — no matter what the circumstances.
To celebrate the life-changing impact of this book, we’re releasing a brand new cover design for the paperback (check it out below). Plus, you’ll get to read stories from folks who’ve used these three words to transform every aspect of their lives. Yes, even during a global pandemic.
I’m grateful I got this book out into the world in time to help people navigate the-year-that-never-ends.
And I’m excited to introduce it to you again in its whole new form.
Featuring, of course, my mom’s orange radio.
