Made easy


#301: Start Before You’re Ready With Marie Forleo

February 6, 2020

Marie Forleo

Listen on…

Did you know that the number one regret people have during their last days is that they didn’t have the courage to follow their dreams and live a life that aligned with their deepest desires?

In her book, The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying, Bronnie Ware says…

“This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.”

Did you just get chills? I did.

So my question for you is this… how are you going to make sure that you don’t experience the same regret?

How are you going to conjure up the courage to follow your dreams and live a life that you love?

A life on purpose.
A life that fulfills you.

My guest and dear friend, Marie Forleo has a simple practice to help you minimize regret and step into the confidence of taking action towards your dreams — towards your heart’s truest desires.

Marie’s been a guest on the Online Marketing Made Easy podcast many times before. And if you don’t know who she is, she’s been named the thought-leader of the next generation by Oprah herself. She’s a New York Times bestselling author, creator of one of the most popular training programs on the planet, B-School, and the creative force behind her award-winning show, MarieTV.

In this episode, we’re talking about a powerful practice that she calls the “Ten-Year Test,” why you should always start before you’re ready, and how to create momentum towards your dreams.

We’ll also talk about Marie’s free online business building workshop that she just released in which she’ll teach you The 6 Pillars of Building an Online Business. Marie has a tremendous gift for breaking things down to simple and understandable steps, so you do not want to miss this!

I look forward to it all year. You’re going to love it!
