  • Hey, it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be to create a business

  • and life you love. This is a very special day. Not only is it New Year’s, but it is

  • also the second anniversary of MarieTV.

  • You know, people always ask me all the time whether or not they should do video even though

  • they don’t have a big budget right now. They don’t have a fancy set or professional

  • editors or a wardrobe stylist.

  • And, you know what? If youre thinking about doing video or you have any other endeavor

  • that you wanna get off the ground but you think it has to be high end out the gate,

  • you are gonna love this episode of MarieTV. I’m gonna take you back in time and show

  • you how we started, and I think youre gonna be surprised. I’m even surprised to see

  • where we started and where we are now, and I think youre gonna find this very encouraging.

  • Hi there, it’s Marie here and I wanna share a story today that I learned from an

  • unusual source, from...”

  • I first started playing with online video back in early 2010. All I was doing was sitting

  • at my desk, looking into my little webcam on my Macbook, and shooting. As you can see,

  • there’s no fancy editing, no good lighting. It was kinda crappy. It was just me talking

  • to the people like you right out in the interwebs.

  • But here’s the thing, even though I was enjoying it, I knew that if I had people on

  • my team that actually knew what they were doing, we could make this thing so much more.

  • And I was really following a hunch, because I knew deep inside I was supposed to be doing

  • more video.

  • By late summer I had found two incredible women, Michelle and Grace, and they started

  • helping me make videos in my apartment. We had some better lighting, things were starting

  • to take shape, but, as you can see, it was still pretty raw and off the cuff.

  • Then I realized to deliver the most value to my audience, I needed to start outlining

  • my questions and answers to get my best thinking out of my head and down on paper.

  • We also wanted to up our lighting game, so we stopped shooting in my apartment and went

  • over to Michelle’s apartment and started shooting against the infamous brick wall.

  • So now things were really going well, but one of the most frustrating parts of MarieTV

  • for me was figuring out what the heck to wear. You see, I hate shopping. I especially hate

  • shopping alone because I get really overwhelmed and frustrated.

  • So that’s when Elsa came on board, style me Elsa, and she started making me look great

  • and took away that complete headache of wardrobe.

  • The other thing I realized is I could write a lot better and faster if I had someone to

  • write with. That’s when I brought my beloved friend and genius writer, Laura Belgray, on

  • to co write MarieTV.

  • So that brings us to 2012 and I was itching to switch things up, so we took our show out

  • on the road and we started interviewing some awesome people.

  • Now, once I got out from the brick wall I did not wanna go back. So our next step was

  • to go out and find some studios and create our own MarieTV set. Then we got even more

  • adventurous and we did our first ever MarieTV cooking episode with our dear friend, Kris

  • Carr.

  • And that brings us up to today, the very first day of 2013. So, as you can see, this whole

  • thing just started with me with my webcam, and we built it step by step by step over

  • time.

  • There is no such thing as an overnight success, so anything that you wanna do in life takes

  • a lot of hard work, a lot of persistence, and, yes, you will make a lot of mistakes.

  • So no matter what you wanna create, remember, the whole key is just to get started. You

  • don’t have to get it perfect, you just have to get going and you will figure it out along

  • the way.

  • You know, when we first started MarieTV, I had a vision for where it could go, what it

  • could become, and I am so grateful that we are on our way there. And I’m grateful to

  • you for helping us make this happen.

  • So now as were at the top of this new year, I would love to know more about your vision.

  • Because one of my favorite quotes in the world is about vision and it goes like this:

  • Dissatisfaction and discouragement are not caused by the absence of things but the

  • absence of vision.”

  • So what’s your vision for the next year? What do you wanna create over the next 12

  • months? What are you excited to dig into, excited to experience, or excited to achieve?

  • And, most importantly, what’s one single action step you can take right now to help

  • make that vision come to life?

  • So, remember, the best discussions happen after the episode at, so go

  • there and leave a comment now.

  • Like this video? Then subscribe and share it with your friends. And if you want even

  • more great resources to create a business and life you love plus some personal insights

  • from me that I only talk about in email, get your butt over to and sign

  • up for email updates.

  • Stay on your game and keep going for your dreams because the world needs that special

  • gift that only you have. Thank you so much for watching this special episode and I will

  • see you next time on MarieTV.
