  1. I feel Inspired by Marie Forleo’s story of failure and persistence. I, too, have quit so many jobs because of that same feeling. I am 24 years old. I have put myself down again and again about quitting so many times. My mistake was reapplying for similar jobs instead of trying something new. I definitely need to try something different. Thank you for sharing your story Marie! It was truly an eye opener.

    1. hey babe! don’t be hard on yourself, just keep moving froward and listen to your heart. We are all on our own journey. You’re so strong and so beautiful ~ love u so much! Xxo 💖

    2. Girl from just recognizing something needs to give you’re already on your way! This is SO normal and a tpoic not a lot of people talk about, but so many people go through! I totally understand, I just left a job that was making me miserable, and though I loved my team, I knew it wasn’t right. It was super hard to do, but something I didn’t expect was the outpouring of encouragement from coworkers & people telling me to charge forward and work on finding that passion. Yes currently I have 2-3 random jobs to keep those bills paid, but I’m happier than I have been in a long time. So start making shifts and changes because you got this and will be surprised how the universe comes up to help you! Also please don’t get hung up on the age thing, or the shoulda, woulda, couldas; I did for a long time and it will only zap away at your energy and happiness. You’re on a journey no one else will take, so of course it won’t look like anyone else’s, and age is an energy, not a number! *Sorry for the long comment – just really wanted you to know you are not alone!*

    3. I have to jump in on this thread, because I feel you, Mercedes! I came out of college with no job, always worried I was never going to land a career. I finally stepped into a position I thought I was going to love and adore. I hit such a wall and I had to step back. Now I’m looking for something that better fits me, but that worry is still there.
      We can’t be so hard on ourselves, and we have to follow our hearts and not worry about the judgement that isn’t actually there! We deserve to be happy and fulfilled!😊 We’ve got this!
      And Marie, you totally inspired all of us. I absolutely resonated so well with your chat, and I couldn’t be more excited for the future!

    4. hey Mercedes!! we hear you ~ know that you always have love & support from this amazinggg TIU community! You are so strong & so beautiful. love u so much! Xxo 💪🏻✨💕

  2. For me the hardest part is that first step towards your dream job or goals, getting over the fear of feeling comfortable where you are and starting over not knowing if it will work out. I have three kids all my time and energy goes into them. I’ve been at the same company for 12 years…. I love the people I work with, the laid back environment and culture is fantastic on top of the great benefits. But being bored and constantly feeling as if I should be doing something else that gives me joy and a purpose. I’ve had multiple opportunities to change my job or take that leap into something new however I didn’t take it because financially it wasn’t the right time or fit.

    1. we hear ya babe!! it can be tough to find the right time, but you’re smart, strong and amazinggg already! trust yourself. love u!! Xxo 💗💪🏻✨

  3. This is seriously one of my favorite chats… Adore Marie and all she creates and represents. Glad you 3 connected… I am just too damn excited to see your friendship grow together. INCREDIBLE! Literally have a visceral reaction of excitement.

  4. This was so helpful and inspirational! I’ve been in the same career for 10 years (Human Resources) and for the past few feeling like I’m meant to be doing something else. I kept thinking I was just lazy or not wanting to work (am I having a mid-life crisis?). I watched a coffee chat you had some time ago with Emily Didonato, and she mentioned she was a certified integrative nutrition coach through IIN. That sparked something – I’ve been through my own health/weight-loss journey and know the struggles that come along with it, as well as other areas of personal growth, and thought, I want to help others on a personal level as well. I called IIN and just enrolled on the spot and completed in November. I’m doing a few more advanced courses now, but honestly, I’m terrified to make the leap…I keep waiting for the “right time”. Waiting until I get the perfect plan in place. Yet I know deep down, now is the time, that I’m really just scared of failing or disappointing others. Thank you for this, so incredibly beneficial for me at this very point in my life!

  5. I so love this. its so great to constantly be reminded that some of the greatest success comes from failing but persevering!!!!~!~~~

  6. Loved this coffee chat! Sometimes you have to try out other jobs to find out that it’s not the right fit. After I got my degree in psychology I thought I wanted to be a therapist and a dietitian (because apparently I didn’t need to have spare time haha) and lasted two weeks in school to become a RD and realized that it was NOT for me. At first, I was upset with myself and was mad that I was “wasting time,” but I learned that I love nutrition but I don’t want to do it as a career. I love what I do now as a therapist and feel so passionate about the mental health field and am trying to figure out how to mix that with my passion for fitness. Thanks for the inspiring chat!

    1. hey Joanne!! loveeee this babe! so proud of you for keeping and open heart and following it! love u!! Xxo 💖

  7. This chat was everything I needed!! I have been considering leaving my job and going back to school for something I am passionate about. I have held back from doing it before because of 1. “That stead paycheck and health benefits” and 2. I thought I was too old. This was the inspiration and motivation I needed. Thank you!

    1. It’s never too late to make a change and follow your dreams! This whole community is here to support you and cheer you on 💗

  8. LOVE LOVE LOVE this coffee chat! I’ve struggled with making a decision on what I want for life, have been fortunate to move around a bit for my career but have been realizing that it’s the career that is unfulfilling, not the location. Still trying to figure out how to make the leap but am so eager and motivated to do it! It seems to be a topic that we, as women, tend to ignore and push away because we think of what’s “responsible” from a financial and stability standpoint, but I’m learning now more than ever that I haven’t been making the most “responsible” choices for my well-being. Would love to connect on a more personal level with all of you other ladies feeling this way! IG: Tiu_StephanieLynn712

    1. Hey Stephanie! We as women definitely need to talk about this more and support each other as we make big leaps and follow our dreams. We believe in you!! xxo

  9. I love this coffee chat so much!! Marie is so incredibly inspirational and well spoken. It couldn’t be more perfect timing for me; I’m 33 and am still trying to figure out what I want to do as my career. I have an interior design background so I keep going after different channels of that industry to see if one will give me that *ah-ha* feeling, and I keep coming up short. It’s so disappointing and so hopeless feeling. I’ve thought about going into wellness/health because I’m so passionate about that in my life, but the thought of starting over has detoured me. Marie’s words “clarity comes from engagement, not thought” struck me to the core. I’ve THOUGHT about doing a lot of different things, but haven’t actually tried DOING them. Hearing Marie’s story of how she kept going, kept trying, kept doing, is motivation for me to do the same. Thank you, truly, for this video ❤️

    1. Hey Jenny! We’re so glad this video resonated with you so much. Marie’s message is so powerful! We believe in you and know you’ll find your passion and absolutely rock it! 💗

  10. I loved the video. My dad tells me the same thing as her dad told her. My problem is that I feel like I have everything turning me down a path I don’t want to go. I was going to school for what I wanted and then half-way through it closed for bankruptcy, and I had to move back to a small town, and now I don’t even know how to make it back to a city with a school I can afford.

    1. Hey Madalyn ~ we believe in you and this whole team is here to cheer you on as you reach for your dreams. love you 💛

  11. I love how you dad supported you by saying that you have to find something you love!
    I’ve had many times during my 20s, even in university where I knew that this path is not right for me and my parents always said ‘Don’t be silly!’ You know, I don’t want to blame them, you know, it’s my life, I nevertheless could have gone another path, but your parents help you moneywise and don’t understand and support a change of path at all, then going another path is even harder than it is in the first place. I gratuated, I worked in the jobs I was supposed to, and all in all it took me 7 years to finally arrive at a point where I stood up and said No more. Last year was a game changer: I turned 30 in January, I started a side job in my dream career field in February, I quit my main career in July, I went back to university in October. I’m not 100% sure where life is taking me but I’m so much happier and so much more hopeful about the future than I was when my career was planned out.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing babe! That’s amazing you’re following your dreams! This whole community is here cheering you on ✨
