How Marie Forleo dealt with a “tiramisu” of insecurity

Gah! I am so excited to share this with you….

I managed to nab 30 minutes with the incomparable, brilliant, shiny-maned business and marketing genius – Marie Forleo.

Now, if you don’t know who Marie is, Oprah has called her a “thought leader for the next generation”. Oprah! (I called her a “mad legend that’s changed my business” but Marie hasn’t placed my testimonial quite as high as Oprah’s on her website yet. Not sure why. Marie?).

Marie is the genius behind B-School – the online course that legitimately changed the game for my business (and thousands of others).

We sat down to chat about business and … mindset. Specifically, we talked about the three biggest mental barriers we see people face when they’re trying to build their businesses.

I’ve named it “The Three Biggest Challenges Every Entrepreneur Will Face (and how to deal with them once and for all) with Marie Forleo and Turia Pitt”. So, yes, the title conveys what it’s about fairly well, thank you for noticing.

If you’re running your own business, want to start your own business, or work in a business, you need to watch this.

Marie is hilarious, super intelligent and wise, and I think you’ll get so much out of this chat, including:

  • How Marie dealt with a  “tiramisu” of insecurity when she first started her business
  • How you can be yourself (aka not the slick professional, robotic version of yourself that you think you have to be to get ahead) and still be successful
  • How to stop listening to your inner critic
  • How a simple, one-word switch can help you overcome the big obstacles in your path, like “I don’t have the time” or “I don’t have the money”
  • How to stay in your genius lane and stop comparing yourself to others (i.e. how to stop taking shots of Compareschlager – maybe my fave part of our chat)

(Oh, and there’s a surprise appearance from Marie’s dog Kuma halfway through!).

I wanted to share this chat with you today because Marie will be re-opening the doors to B-School in the next couple of weeks.

And, given I’ll be an affiliate for B-School this year (which means that if you join B-School through me, you’ll get access to all the additional support tools and live coaching calls that I’ll be offering as well!), I wanted you to have a chance to get to know more about it, and more about Marie.

If you’re serious about creating a profitable, online business, I can’t recommend B-School enough.

It’s the reason I have the business I have today …. AKA one where I can launch one of the biggest projects of my year (that’s B-School) the same month I’m due to have a baby. Crazy!

So, if you want to learn a little bit more about Marie and B-School, and you’d like to hear our take on the three biggest challenges every business owner will face, this is for you:

I hope you enjoy, and please tell me your favourite takeaway or insight (like, did you love the idea of Compareschlager as much as me?!) in the comments below.

PS – If you’re keen to join B-School with me this year (yes!), or just want to know more about it (yes again!), I HIGHLY recommend that you check out Marie’s free training series. It’s full of really great insights and tips. Check it out here.

PPS – If you’re driving or walking your dog, or just prefer to listen to an audio version of this chat, I uploaded it to Soundcloud for you too. Click here to listen!
