It’s easy to look at super successful entrepreneurs and people doing big things in the world and feel like you’re really far behind. But the truth is, we all start somewhere and those early days are far from glamorous.
For my friend Marie Forleo, the founder of B-School, her multi-million dollar empire began with the realization that she wanted to be a life coach… in 1999. She started in survival mode, and worked as a bartender to pay her bills while she got her idea off the ground.
So how did she make it happen? That’s what I’m talking to Marie about today in a pretty candid interview that shows a side of Marie you probably haven’t seen before.
In our interview, we dive into:
- The early days of her business when she was working to turn her idea into a real business
- How she got her first client
- How she made the shift from side business to CEO of a growing online empire, and the big lessons learned along the way
- Why she built B-School, and how it can work for you
Let’s do this.
