Marie Forleo on Diving in Head First

Marie Forleo is a New Jersey girl with nothing more than passion, a laptop and a dream. Turns out, that’s just what she needed to build a multimillion-dollar socially conscious empire. In her time with former SUCCESS Publisher Darren Hardy, Forleo tells the story of her personal-development journey and what anyone can do to make the world a better place through a business or as an individual.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the December 2015 edition of SUCCESS magazine.

Favorite quote:

“We can spend so much time in our minds, especially as we get and we have success. It almost becomes harder to make those big changes because we have so much on the line that we could lose—whether that’s our ego, our reputation or our financial stability, or any myriad of things. But a mantra of starting before you’re ready really helps you overcome some of those limitations and fears and self-doubts that can keep us stuck.”

 —Marie Forleo
