Personal Brands We Love: Marie Forleo

24 February, 2014

Marie ForleoOkay, so she’s not South African. She’s Italian. From Jersey. Saying we love Marie Forleo is like saying we love Oprah, or Richard Branson or Brad Pitt. Yes they’re all larger than life brand personas but they’re also real people. And this is what makes Marie real to me:

  1. She celebrates her wacky side. Watch her videos and see.
  2. She tells it like it is. No sugar-coating the truth.
  3. She honours those she loves. We all know her man’s name.
  4. She feels the fear and dances with it. How else would she create such a great brand?
  5. She knows she’s not everyone’s cup of tea. And she’s okay with it.

5 simple points we can all implement to become more authentic and less afraid of who we really are. Check her out and let us know what you think.
