A few weeks ago, I got the worst text of my life.


My dad, who had seemed to be in good health, passed out cold in a bank. He was rushed to the ER. They discovered his kidneys were failing.

To say the past few weeks have been challenging is an understatement.

I’m here with him and my mom now. He’s on the mend but he’s still got quite a road in front of him with surgery, treatments, etc. (And yes, we’ll take all the prayers and healing vibes you’re willing to send.)

Naturally, I’ve been thinking a lot about the fragility of life lately. I’ve also been thinking a lot about time. How we spend it, and how absolutely precious it is. Because once that resource is spent, we can never get it back.

One of our MarieTV viewers asked a question that I’ve heard a lot, but haven’t answered until now. “Marie, what’s the one thing you wished you knew sooner?”

My answer is in today’s episode. It speaks to how I wasted an enormous amount of time early on in my career struggling with something that, ultimately, didn’t matter.

Once you’ve had a chance to watch this week’s episode, I’d really love to hear from you.

Is there something you know now that you wish you knew a little sooner?

My hope is that we, you along with our amazing community, can share some of our hard won wisdom (and hindsight silliness!) with each other.

Remember to share as much detail as possible in your comment as thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration. Your story may be just what someone else needs to have a breakthrough.

Important: please share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

Thank you so very much for reading, watching and sharing your genius here. Your kindness and insight always warms my heart, and I am so appreciative of how you help to make this corner of the Internet a truly spectacular place.

P.S. If you find today’s episode insightful, please forward it to a friend, colleague or client you think it could help. Anyone who might need a little extra support (and a giggle) as they build their dreams.

All my love,
