The most successful, ambitious, prosperous entrepreneurs are often those who have failed…and failed HARD.

Now, when I say “fail”, I don’t mean: “No one bought my ebook” or “My article got rejected” failure. I mean substantial, teetering-on-homelessness kind of failure.

Take Suzy Batiz, today’s guest and founder of a brand I adore: Poo-Pourri. At 40, Suzy had multiple failed businesses behind her and was facing bankruptcy…for the second time. She called herself “the worst entrepreneur in the world” and swore she’d never go into business again.

…until she had her Big Idea.

Watch and learn how she came up with Poo-Pourri and how it physically felt in her body when the idea wouldn’t leave her alone. Poo-Pourri is now a $300M brand with a viral video you’ve probably seen, Girls Don’t Poop.

In today’s MarieTV you’ll hear how Suzy went from mega failure to mega joyful success, including:

  • How she knew this idea was the big one (and how to choose which business idea to pursue if you have several)
  • The time she started asking house guests if they needed to go #2 ?
  • What she did after getting “caught with her pants down” and the massive apology she sent as a result
  • The simple 2-word philosophy that guides both her business and her life

This episode is full of surprises and powerful insights. Once you’ve watched, I’d love to hear from you. Which insight or takeaway meant the most to you and why? Leave a comment below and let me know.

Remember, share as much detail as possible in your reply. Thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration, and your story may help someone else have a meaningful breakthrough.

Important: share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be removed.

Suzy said it herself: “The world out there gets to delight in this offering.” Which is another way to remind you: The world really needs that special gift that only you have. Yes, even if you’ve stumbled countless times. Just keep going.

All my love and endless support,
