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.

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

The Entrepreneur’s Path – Starting a Restaurant

Starting a restaurant is no simple undertaking. Basically, you marry the operation and it becomes a sort of daily performance where you need to be at your very best presentation day-in and day-out (Meyer & Vann, 2013). Of course, your restaurant is best served (pun intended) with you, the owner, having a passion for cooking…. Read more »
