My interview with Marie Forleo for MarieTV

Written by

I’ve been a fan and a student of Marie Forleo for nearly a decade now. She is one of the wisest, most generous, and most inspiring female entrepreneurs of our time. If you don’t already know Marie, she is the creator of the award-winning show, MarieTV, founder of B-School, an online training program that has helped more than 60,000 students (from 160 countries) start and grow successful businesses, and in 2019 her book Everything is Figureoutable became an instant #1 New York Times bestseller.

The experience was a full-circle moment for me because, after all these years of learning from her, I finally had something to share in return. We talked about so many meaningful things, including growing a business on your own terms, the importance of trusting your gut, and what it really takes to stay true to your heart and make it as an entrepreneur. 

Watch my interview with Marie. 

Of all the investments I’ve made in myself and Floret, I would say that B-School was one of the most impactful. I can trace so much of our success back to what I learned from Marie through the course. I love the fact that, in addition to being incredibly well-organized and thoroughly put together, it was created by a woman, primarily for women, especially those in creative fields.

I still get tremendous value out of this program and can honestly say it’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made. In addition to B-School, Marie Forleo also offers a short course in copywriting, which I’ve found incredibly helpful when it comes to writing newsletters, project pitches, and website copy. Her website is also filled with so many incredible free resources for both business and personal growth.

I am so excited to finally be able to share our conversation with you. Enjoy the interview!

    I loved the interview! I struggle with boundaries. Hearing how powerful and peaceful your boundaries have been was inspiring. I’m going to be doing more intentional journaling using Marie’s prompts. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I can’t wait to see where the Floret goes next.

    P.S. What is the name of the beautiful white and orange rose in the small arrangement on the bottom left of the screen? It’s stunning.
