Weekly Wednesday Video

Today's Wednesday video is by the Good Life Project and features Marie Forleo. Both the Good Life Project and Marie Forleo inspire me on a weekly basis, so I wanted to share some of those good feelings with you. Check out how one woman is building an empire to inspire people to take control of their personal and business lives. Hmm... sounds familiar ;)
