When I first saw this woman, I knew I needed to have her on MarieTV.

Naturally, I stalked her on Twitter and Facebook. When we finally connected, and she said yes to an interview, I pumped my fist in true Jersey style.

Courageous, funny, smart and beautiful are just a few of the many adjectives I’d use to describe Maysoon Zayid.

She’s a writer, actor, and comedian whose TED Talk “I got 99 problems… palsy is just one.” has been viewed over 5 million times and translated into 37 languages. You may also recognize her from Adam Sandler’s movie You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.

I love Maysoon because she’s blunt and bold, vulnerable and visionary and never afraid to tackle an issue head on.

If you’ve ever felt judged or marginalized because of who you are, hurt by what others say (especially online), or believed that something you can’t change about yourself is holding you back…

Today’s episode of MarieTV is a must watch.

You know…

My hunch is that you watch MarieTV because you have something inside of you that you want to bring into being.

A life change, spiritual change, physical change or some kind of creation your soul came here to express.

Whatever your heart is craving, know that you can do it.  You wouldn’t have the impulse if you didn’t already have the goods to make it happen.

Now, Maysoon and I have a question for you.

What’s the single biggest insight you’re taking away from our interview today? Why is that personally important for you?

Let us know in the comments below and share as much detail as you can.

We’re stronger together and your insight may be just the thing that someone else needs to find their strength and keep going.

Thank you for reading, watching and contributing to our community.

Without a doubt, you make this one of the brightest, most incredible corners of the digital Universe.

I’m deeply grateful to you and can’t wait to see what insights you share.

P.S. If you loved last week’s episode, Chris’ book is available today. Missed our chat? Check it out here.

With all my love,
