Marie Well

I’m Marie Well, as in healthy well. At least, that’s my aim—to get well and make you well. We all have woes, from breakups to cancer to hoarder houses. I’m here to fix those woes—with tips mixed with my own tales.

Why read me? I’ve got a track record of fixin’ stuff. I’ve cured myself of anxiety. For a decade, I had anxiety attacks that struck almost daily. When not stricken, I’d write Voice articles, mostly on how to combat stress.

And then my world changed. One week went by with no attacks. A month. A year. Two years. And counting.

Now, I want to skyrocket our health—and bolster our creativity. After all, nothing soothes better than strokes of paint or tones of music or reps in a gym.

So, let’s get fit, creative, and well with Marie Well.

How many resolutions,… Read more »

The Fit Student

Student fitness requires learning at optimal physical and mental performance. Studying requires enormous energy?energy that we can’t afford to deplete by spending time on distractions. Our bodies burn so much energy throughout the day that any redirection of that vitality on something irrelevant or superfluous exhausts our supply. With studying, every ounce of energy we… Read more »

The Entrepreneur’s Path

Scouting out books on entrepreneurialism from the shelves of bookstores always disappoints. On one hand, there exists a vast selection of books on tiresome topics such as how to write a business plan or the mindset of an entrepreneur. Worse still included a series on the cut-throat, unmerciful Dragon Den’s advice, of which I own… Read more »

The Entrepreneur’s Path – The Laptop Millionaire, Part II

The Entrepreneur’s Path

I had the good fortune recently to have my brother publish a Kindle book on Amazon for the first time.
