What Marie Forleo Learned From Her Parents Divorce, an Abusive Relationship & Money Issues Which Helped Her Win At The New Game of Business & Life


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 back story of overcoming the natural challenges that many people face along the way.

She recently spent a week on Richard Branson’s Necker Island with the winners of Shopify’s “Build a Business Competition” along with Richard Branson, Tim Ferris, Seth Godin and Daymond John.
