VCR: MarieTV gives you just the pep talk you need

In this new series we’ll be picking out some of our favourite YouTube channels and letting you know why we think they’re so great. From advice on how to ace a job interview to relaxing videos to help you achieve total mindfulness, you’ll catch it all on the VCR (Video Channel Reviews) feature.

MarieTV is the brainchild of life coach and motivational speaker Marie Forleo. Hailed by Oprah as a thought leader for the next generation, Forleo is all about inspiring viewers to create a business and a life they love through her series of empowering videos.

She covers everything from how to build a meaningful business to strengthening your mind and your soul, and tackles heavy topics in an accessible manner.


It is no surprise that Oprah is a fan. Forleo takes on weighty topics and questions that keep a lot of us up at night, but does so in a way that is relatable and so easy to watch. Her musings on productivity will tackle your work woes, whilst her words on overcoming your fears will give you the pep talk you need from an objective source.

Her playlist of videos covering “Overcoming Fears and Limiting Beliefs” is exactly the pep talks I was referring to. Forleo offers up words of encouragement and breaks down your worries in an open, honest and really productive way. For when a friend or family member won’t cut it and you need words from an outside source, Forleo rationalises common sources of stress and anxiety in your professional life, and makes them seem a lot less scary.
