Life coach Marie Forleo’s mother used to fix everything, from the roof to the bathroom tiles to the transistor radio. Her mom’s secret? “Everything is figureoutable.” Forleo took this to heart. With inspiring stories, encouraging words and a dash of tough love, she shows that no matter how big your problem or your goal, you can figure it out. If you read self-help books about fulfilling your dreams, this won’t be big news. Happily, Forleo’s pick-me-up delivers a solid, practical message.

About the Author

Author and motivational speaker Marie Forleo is a life coach and host of MarieTV.

You can figure out anything if you try.

Forleo explains that your brain is a biocomputer. To make changes in your life, open your mind to being reprogrammed. Instead of telling yourself everything’s a mess, Forleo insists you tell yourself  that “everything is figureoutable.”

Forleo divulges that she was the first person in her family to earn a college degree. She worked as a trade assistant on Wall Street, but realized it wasn’t the job for her. Her dad had faith that she would find something Forleo loved, and figure out how to pay her bills. Forleo knew personal coaching was the career for her. She relates how she supplemented her income with bartending as she built her business, certain that she could figure out how to be successful.
