I recently sat down with Marie Forleo, creator of Marie TV and B-School, which is in its seventh year. Marie is a multi-passionate entrepreneur, a smart online business teacher and a Hip Hop loving personal branding expert.

I was lucky enough to know her as a friend for a long time and saw the trajectory as she built a great personal and educational brand, along with the backstory of overcoming the natural challenges that many people face along the way.

Marie is a great example of someone hustling hard to chase down their goals and showing a ton of grit and perseverance to make it all happen. As Marie said, “Clarity comes from engagement, not thought”, so don’t wait – get engaged and take action now!
