Do you like my smurf outfit? Did you hear that? That was an inside burp.
Hey, it's Marie Forleo, and you are watching Marie TV. That's right, the place to be if you want to create a business and life you love. And this is Q&A Tuesday. And today's question comes from Santa. Holy cow. Santa writes, dear Marie, I'm your-
Number one fan on the North Pole. Love your energy girl. You've always been on my nice list and I wanted to give you your Christmas present early.
Santa, give me a hug.
Oh my god, you guys. [inaudible 00:00:54] a stool you all.
Thanks for the bike santa.
Oh, you're very welcome young man.
Holy cow. Santa, this is amazing, but wait up. You guys, wait, Santa, this is Christmas Eve. Shouldn't you be out delivering presents all over the world?
I should. I just can't seem to get motivated. I just don't know what to do. I'm burnt out. I don't know, that's why I came to you.
Well, I mean, do you want a different career, do you want to go in a different direction?
Oh, no. I love delivering presents to all the children. It's just that I could've had a really cushy job at my father's real estate office. But no, I chose this job and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, I've got my list.
Is that of whose naughty and nice?
Oh, no. It's my Q's for you to A.
All right, it is Q&A Tuesday, so what do you got for me?
Number one, I feel like I've lost my passion for what I do. All I want to do is lie under the covers and watch Mob Wives and Dance Moms. How do I get my passion back?
Great question Santa. I got to say, you're not the only one that asks this question. But I will say, you told me you're a big fan of Marie TV and we've already covered that. So here's the deal, we have a video, what to do when you doubt everything and you want to stay in bed. So you're going to watch that right after this. Done, awesome, next question.
Okay. Let's see. Number two, how can I take my business to the next level? I want to reach more people, make a bigger difference and I want a little location freedom for me and the misses.
Awesome question. So question for you Santa. Do you have a mailing list?
Do I have a mailing list? Do I ever.
Okay big guy. First of all, you need all those contacts in email. And you need to be the one contacting them. And here's the other thing, you can't just give people stuff one time a year. You got to stay in regular touch all year long. You know what? You need to get your jolly ass in B-School. It will totally help you bust through this rut. And you're going to get to travel more with the misses.
You mean boys can do B-School?
Yes. I've been saying that forever. Everybody is welcome in B-School and we have tons of guys in there already. You are going to love them. So here's the thing, you get one more question, and then you need to get back to work brother.
Oh boy, okay. Let's see, everyone wants me to be fat. I don't feel good on the beach. Misses Clause is not supportive. Oh, here we go, this is a good one. Number 83, I'm gluten intolerant and everyone keeps leaving me cookies. I eat them and then I get bloated and gassy-
Okay, I got it.
... the reindeer certainly complain because-
I get it.
... we're in a tight space.
Santa, I got it. Okay, here's the thing, I love your work. I follow you on Twitter. Never once have I head you say anything publicly about being gluten intolerant. Here's the thing you got to do, all you got to do is let everybody know. Say, "Thank you for all the cookies, they're amazing. But I'm only going to eat the ones that are gluten free. And the rest I'm going to take home to the elves and Misses Clause." Done.
Yeah, but Misses Clause could stand to lose a few pounds.
No yeah buts, just listen to Mamma Marie, Santa. Now, before you go, I have one question for you. What do you want for Christmas, Santa?
Well, I was thinking about these great new Peds socks. They have treads at the bottom, they're very short. They're very trendy nowadays. Oh, or I could take a Kenny G CD, that cat sure can jam. Or, I could just take a kiss.
Of course Santa. Come here. Santa! Boundaries!
I'm so sorry. Please forgive me. I'm just such a huge fan and it's been so long since I've been to the city. Can we just pretend like this never happened?
Oh, of course we can Santa. It's okay. Are you all right now?
100%, this was amazing. I'm going to go hit some snowball out of the park. I'm going to give so many presents, rock so many chimneys. And I'm finally going to do B-School. I don't know what the heck I've been waiting for. You know Marie, I do have one more wish.

You mean a whose naughty and nice?
No stupid, it's up my... Wait a minute, let's make out for the end. Right? That's it. I'm going to go out there and I'm going to really give it to those kids twice as hard. That is a terrible thing to say.
