Marie Forleo Quotes on Money and Business | The Good, Bad, and Ugly

“Beyond your health (physical, mental, emotional)…The single most important thing you can do for yourself is to take control of your money.”

“There was a time when reaching for my checkbook was an anxiety producing act.  Once I opened it up, I became engulfed with guilt and fear and shame. “There’s not enough this month. I don’t know how I’m going to do this…”  Eventually, that pattern became unacceptable to me. Other people were able to effectively manage their money — but clearly, I wasn’t one of them!  So I did what I always do when I find myself in pain. I promised myself I was going to figure this thing out. That I was going to do whatever it took to educate myself, change my patterns and finally create healthier and wiser money habits.”

“Money’s like you and me. It’s attracted to respect and appreciation.”

“The courage to charge for what you do comes from charging for what you do.”

“Getting money means giving joy”.

“Patience is one of the most underrated traits in modern business.”

“Anger is just energy and all energy can be transformed.”

“Envy isn’t the enemy, it’s a valuable clue to who you want to be and how to get there.”

“Our time on this planet is so precious. Which makes me wonder (for myself and others)…Why do so many of us keep putting our most treasured dreams on the back burner? Why do we assume that “someday” is actually going to arrive?Like it or not, the next 365 days are going to pass no matter what. You’ll either be closer to being, doing and experiencing the things you most want, or not.”

“The faster you leave your comfort zone, the faster you’ll see growth. Simple as that.”

“Nothing gets attention like giving attention.”

    “You’re job isn’t to make everyone happy, it’s to stay true to yourself.” Great quote! I am going to add this to my inspiration wall for my business. Very interesting article with so many great quotes and inspiration. I had never heard of Marie Forleo but you for sure made me a fan!

    1. Tiffany Denise

      Hi Noell! Marie definitely has a lot of great tips and advice for entrepreneurs. If you haven’t seen any of her work, you should check it out.

  2. Tiffany Denise

    Yet another great article with a great subject base – it really is a treat for marketers like myself to read through your site!

    I have to admit I hadn’t heard of the entrepreneur Marie Forleo before but she certainly seems like a clued up business person, especially if she caught the eye of good old  Mr. Branson. 

    Do you have any idea when she first started out in business by herself? And how long it has taken her to get to the peak of her powers?

  3. Tiffany Denise

    I heard about Marie Forleo before and had seen few of her videos on social media before but never thought she is such an inspiring lady until I read your blog. I became her “Fan” now. I think must of her quotes relate to me and I agree with you that sometimes it is internal obstacles that stop us from becoming hugely successful.

    “If it’s important to you, you’ll make the time. If it’s not, you’ll make an excuse.”

    What a great quote from Marie Forleo and so, so true. Remember when you get started on a new project and you’re full of enthusiasm to get it done? Nothing else seems to matter, you can’t stop thinking about it and you’ll sure as hell find the time to spend on it.

    Once the initial enthusiasm wears off, it strangely becomes a lot more difficult to squeeze the work into your busy day…

    We all need a lift now and again, and these quotes serve that need well. I’ll be bookmarking these quotes so I can come back to them whenever I need some inspiration!

    1. Tiffany Denise

      I love Marie Forleo quotes, and she’s right about how we prioritize. Glad you enjoyed the quotes. Would love to see you around more.

  5. Tiffany Denise

    This is one of the most inspirational videos I’ve watched ever since I read Bob Proctor’s inspirational books. Wow, the boost of energy I felt just listening to her. 

    I really love the fact that you include videos of the people you write about. It makes it so real, and I don’t hesitate to watch them, In fact, it’s the very first thing I click on once I realize it’s available.

    She’s absolutely correct about the fact that we should always approach a challenge from the angle of accepting that it is possible. This has been particulary true for me, as once your subconscious mind knows it’s possible, it start seeking for ways to overcome the challenge.

    And this fundamental truth should really be transferred from one generation to the next: THAT EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE AND THAT WE HAVE THE DIVINE POWER TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.

    You made my Sunday with the great post. Thanks a million.

    1. Tiffany Denise

      Nsoh! We must have alot in common…we’re suckers for good quotes and valuable insight from successful entrepreneurs! I love the quote you pointed out, and I try my best to instill these principles in my kids. Everything is possible.
