How To Take The Shame Out of Self-Promotion

Ever have an opportunity to talk about what you do and either say nothing, or fumble it?

(My hand’s raised.)

That’s because most of us aren’t super great at self-promotion. Selling ourselves can feel awkward, braggartly and just plain wrong.

How To Make Your Business Sound Unique (Even If It’s Not)

“Wow. Everybody and their sister seems to be a ________ these days.”
(Fill in the blank with life or health coach, marketing expert, blogger, etc.)

What If People Can Learn Everything I Teach For Free Online?

A few months ago, Sonya sent in a super smart question for MarieTV. Here’s the gist:

There’s so much free information online about what I teach. So why would anyone pay me for my online course?

Gotta say, I love this question. First, because I spend the vast majority of my time (at least 80%) producing the most outstanding free content I possibly can.

But here’s the other reason I love this question.
