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.

That’s not truly living, at least, not in my… Read more »

With confidence, every dream you’ve ever considered can be realized.  Confidence is critical to gaining the extreme epitome of success you deserve.  But even if you’re not confident, simply act confident until your legacy takes hold.

It’s Never Too Late to Be What You Might Have Been

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been” is a quote from Victorian novelist George Eliot. Did you ever dream so big that, when the dream got quashed, you were crushed for ages?  I know two men who long to retire in style.  Both of their dreams got quashed for different reasons:… Read more »

How to Become a Superhero

Why do motivational clips almost always feature athletes?

Rise to the Top—CMO Requirements

Do you want to rise to the top?  Perhaps you will one day become CEO, CMO, or some other executive of a company.  Even though I believe your potential is limitless, there are statistical realities that need to be considered today for success tomorrow.

How to Inspire

Once, there was the belief that exceeding a four-minute mile sprint was impossible.  But one man broke it.  And then many others followed.  The view was that the belief was what made it possible.  But could it be something else—like widespread changing fitness or diet regimes?  Or maybe it was both belief and something else….

Traits of Star Employees

What makes an employee a star?  If you’re like me, you’ve learned that giving 100% is by far the best option, whether it be for work, school, or fitness and health.  Giving anything less cheats us out of the best possible life.  But what are the traits of these 100% star employees that we should… Read more »
