Once upon a time (3.5 years ago to be exact), there was a girl named Emma, sitting on the couch of her basement apartment, Googling how to make a floral design business happen. A few days later an ad came up on Facebook that promised to teach her how to get paid to be creative, and she got introduced to this fabulous stranger of a woman named Marie Forleo.
…and fell totally in love with her.
(I’m going to switch to first person now or else it’ll just get weird).
Long story short, Marie taught me how to think about business, how to approach it, and how it could truly be a force for good instead of a place full of selfish cash-grabbers.
I’ve been waiting for years for her book to come out: Everything is Figureoutable. And I’ve had a lot of people asking me what I’ve thought about it. I was slightly skeptical because from the title, I sort of thought…”I already believe I can do hard things! And I’ve done them!” so I wondered if there really was more to it than that?
But I dove in, and after a weekend spent in Marie’s world, I have come out on the other side with passage after passage underlined. In one of my favorite parts, I actually stopped reading and handed the book over to Michael to read through while he ate his breakfast.
I thought you might be wondering if you should get a copy so I created a video with some of my biggest takeaways, and my read on who it’s for, and whether it’s worth your purchase and your time right now. Watch it here!
