Do you ever have trouble finishing what you start? Do amazing ideas come to you all the time but after the initial excitement wanes you struggle to follow through? If you're creative and ambitious, the answer is likely yes.

The problem isn't you. It's not that you're not hardworking, intelligent or deserving, but that you haven't yet installed the one key belief that will c

Recommends it for: entrepreneurs
The works of Brene Brown, Simon Sinek, and Elizabeth Gilbert have changed my worldview and, consequently, my life--absolutely for the better--so when I saw that all three recommended this book, I decided to give it a read. Unlike many of the reviewers I've read so far, I'd never heard of Marie Forleo before this week.

I want to preface my review with a bit of my personal standpoint, because I do think that's relevant when it comes to self-help books. Most that I've read (or read many reviews/quot

There were several good tidbits and reframes that were useful, but it read like a lit-crit written by a white woman completely unaware of her privilege. While she did acknowledge her immense privilege, I felt she bypassed the majority of it and it made her unrelatable. She cited poor women from countries in the developing world, and their struggles with abusive marriages and changing their lives. Then she talked about her own struggle- with learning to ride a Vespa while vacationing in Sicily??? ...more

DNF. Not for me. She’s like a female Tony Robbins. NLP and hyping people up with mega-watt energy. That’s fine- that approach really lights some people’s fire. I find it a major turn off. It seems to me like someone with an undoubtedly more confident and energetic ego trying to get my ego to be like hers. Listening to it I just feel bad about myself and tired..and irritated by how full of herself she is, it’s all “I’m not trying to brag but.... “.

A thanks to Forleo for gifting me a copy of this book. This is definitely one of the better self-help books I have read. Forleo approached matters in a realistic way, yet at the same time giving you the tools the get the best out of the situation. The last couple of chapters dragged a bit, but there is a lot of valuable advice in here, so I would nevertheless recommend!

Bubble gum hyper optimistic multi passionate entrepreneurial inspiration.

I actually really enjoyed this book and found it very encouraging.

But don’t expect much depth. Malala Yousafzai is skimmed over next to chapters about how Foreleo almost missed her flight to her Barcelona vacation.

But—EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE! Even getting shot in the head. (It wasn’t phrased quite like that, but you get the idea.) Some jarring juxtapositions aside, it was just a surface level pop culture-y feel good

If you love Jen Sincero's You Are A Badass books - then you'll appreciate Marie's message too!

She really does find an extra hour in the day for you, and then she finds 2 hours!!
it's for any readers, in any stage of you one's life - you just have to want to give yourself good change.

Funny, believable, and widely appreciated - from Cheryl Strayed, to Liz Gilbert, to Brene Brown :)

You can tell she’s been telling these stories that have a bit of truth to them but never really gets the courage to just say ... actually I didn’t get past my internship on wall street and I realised this life coaching thing was essentially what I was doing as a bartender and part time aerobics teacher. It would be more powerful if she just told it straight and owned that it took her a normal duration of time to find her thing and that once she found it she consumed every piece of literature fro ...more

This book was not for me. There's nothing inherently wrong with it, I just didn't find the content as a whole to be helpful for me. That doesn't mean it won't work for others. I do think that approaching life with the idea that "everything is figureoutable" is a good perspective but there are some circumstances/situations that people cannot figure their way out of and their circumstances must be changed systematically. For every person that overcomes some seemingly impossible circumstance, there ...more

Everything is Figureoutable is a practical and profound POWERHOUSE of a book sure to stoke your creative fire and get you excited about chasing your dreams – however daunting they may seem at the moment!

Marie's honest, no-nonsense writing style is super refreshing, and her story is nothing short of tremendously inspiring. I would recommend this book to every entrepreneur or big-dreamer out there, especially young women! "Everything is Figureoutable" is my new mantra whenever anything seems outs

Some good practical advice, including some exercises I appreciated (though they were fairly simple and not original). As someone with a lot of interests and drive, I liked the balance between focusing on a project to get it done and embracing all of your passions.

However, this book is only for people who are already in a good place in their healing process. While there is something to be said for just putting yourself out there and getting started, I would’ve found this book depressing when I w

I did not enjoy this at all and I read a ton of self help books and generally can just glean what is useful and get on with my day. But this one is bad...just poorly written with tons of fake enthusiasm to the point of nausea. I will say, I have never even heard of this woman and this book was recommended by a life coach I know and and who's advice I generally find pretty spot on. About a chapter in I was like ugh, but I kept going for a while. I bailed 3/4 of the way through after I had read ba ...more

Pick a bunch of cliches you'd expect from a self-appointed guru, turn the cliches into chapters with word vomit, and sprinkle some disingenuous, patronizing personlization language like... "one of the joys in my life is connecting with growth-minded, creative souls like you."
Not sure how she knows me so well, but I'm flattered she feels this way about me. I had to shut it down. Maybe if I suffered through the entire book I could find the breakthrough of a lifetime.. or whatever.

One of my absolute favorite books of all time.

The first book I've ever read in a day! Yay! Challenge accomplished!
Marie Forleo's book is an easy read, quite inspiring, funny at times and with a clear message: you can do anything that you really want, are willing to persist for, and put in a lot of effort to make it happen. She backs it up with stories from her audience at MarieTV and podcast, as well as some academic research or surveys.

A relatively frustrating bit - I cannot believe the editors didn't fully check all the quotes! 'He who h

I have been following Marie Forleo for years now and I'm so thrilled that she has come out with this book.

"Everything is Figureoutable" is a mantra that Marie uses on her podcasts, on and in her online classes. It is something that all of us need to hear, and in this book, she outlines exactly how to make it work for you.

Marie is funny, approachable, intelligent, sensitive and thoughtful. She empowers readers to get to the heart of what they need to do to make their lives better...p

I was assigned this in a professional development course and I didn't feel as though the contents were new or innovative enough to warrant the repackaging. In addition the author packed this book full with lots of pleas to watch her videos, visit her site, attend her conferences, and share this book with as many people as possible. I am happy for her success, good for her, however I am not interested in being used to further her media 'empire'. ...more

This book is similar to the other go-get-'em books on the market. However, I will admit, listening to this one at this particular time, it was good to hear, "everything is figureoutable." The text is interspersed with Marie's own stories, mini exercises, and her followers' tales of triumph when they learned, or remembered, that they too could figure it out and make it work. I enjoyed listening to the author narrate and her enthusiasm most definitely came across. ...more

Review to follow.
Wow! How have I not watched Marie TV before or even heard of Marie Forleo? She is a powerhouse in business, coaching, and life in general. A new media mogul and business woman to be reckoned with. This book makes last year’s popular Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis read like a YA magazine article. 🙃

I dislike the genre title of ‘self-help’ books as it has a negative connotation to me and most others I presume. I like to call it self-improvement or self-progress. I am always growing and learn

Just another self-help book!!
This book focuses a lot on things like other self-help book. They tell you can succeed in your life and achieve you goals by just saying their made-up phrases (everything is figureoutable)
It seems good source for someone who has just started developing themselves.
And it is so boring for people who read a lot of self-help books.

It’s definitely a motivational read and I enjoyed Marie’s style of writing. I think the audiobook could be a great listen. It’s a little light on actionable guidance and advice, but if you want a pick me up read, this is a good choice.

This book was so good! I’m impressed! I think it was the best book for personal development that I’ve ever read. And this speaks volume.
Oct 06, 2019 rated it liked it
This would probably be better as an audio book read by Marie. I admire what she’s built and think there were some good exercises sprinkled throughout, but a lot of the references to her talk and the examples of “real” people reminded me too much of the circular reference promotional tactics used in The 5 Second Rule.
Benjamin Torres
This book is motivational and good inspiration, but not very much else. It is repetitive to the extreme and shallow in its message.

I did find some useful tips and interesting points, specially how it is so very important to have the right attitude when solving a problem, but I felt it was little more than optimistic go get it book.

Such a great feel good book. Marie helps you conquer your doubts and distractions and focus on putting yourself and your instincts centre-stage. It’s there inside each of us, and this books does a great job in helping you bring your plans to fruition. Recommended
I guess I am just not in the mood for this book right now. It has some good ideas and lots of good quotes but it’s not going to change my life or anything. I will check out her videos on YouTube though.

I really wanted to like this book, but I couldn’t. I forced myself to finish it because I like MarieTV and had high hopes for the book. But it‘s full of recycled ideas, white privilege examples and Tony Robbins-inspired motivational talk. Just not my cup of tea.

Very disappointed. Learn nothing from it. Keep saying the same thing over and over.
Well, I didn't hate it, but good Lord, it's just not captivating enough to be held on a pedestal. I can't believe it took me months to finish it!

This should go without saying, but I have to so everyone can see where I'm coming from: I don't HATE Marie Forleo. In fact, I'm an avid listener of her podcast, and, every once in a while, I watch her episodes from MarieTV. I happen to think she is a fun person and her content has some quality value.
