Hey there —
I was just thinking about you. What I was thinking is, if you’re reading this (oh, you are) and you
haven’t signed up for Marie Forleo’s B-School, then you probably fall into one of three camps.
CAMP 1: You’re fully familiar with B-School. It’s been
promoted to you from every everlovin’ direction, and either it’s not your thing
and you know it, or you feel like it could do great things for you, but you’re
still on the fence. And, you know, you
know, it closes at 3pm EST tomorrow afternoon! Enough already, you’re still trying
CAMP 2: You know you’re going to do B-School. You’re PUMPED.
You’re just doing what you always do – waiting till the very last minute, which,
again, is tomorrow at 3pm EST. Ah, the thrill of squeezing through the door
just as it closes! I know it well.
CAMP 3: You hear me mention “camp” and you think of “naked
camp,” or “nudie camp,” because I went to a hippie, Quaker, naked sleepaway camp in Vermont and
that’s what I usually mean when I say “camp.” You know this for the same reason
you subscribe to my emails: because you’re my friend. You’re not thinking about
What you are thinking is, “Did I imagine it, or did
Laura really once say that her cabin had co-ed naked rope swing dates with the
boy’s camp down the lake?”
The answer is yes. And yes, there’s a picture of the very same rope swing below. (But no, it’s not a naked pic. It’s of me hesitating and my sister shivering and waiting for her goddamn turn, both in our bathing suits. Sorry.)
OK, shake the images of pre-pubescent nudity and frayed,
chafing rope from your head for now. Back to you.
If you’re in Camp 1, and you’re still on the fence:
Check out the B-School enrollment site. It should answer any
questions you have about B-School and whether it’s right for you. If you have
questions for me, contact me. I’ll help you sort it

If you’re in Camp 2:
Hey, fellow procrastinator! Wazzup? Here’s what I know about
you, besides that you like to put things off. You feel like a superhero when
you do things ahead of time.
Unless you’re reading this at 2:59 on Monday,
March 4th, it’s still ahead of time. Commit now and be a superhero.
I know you don’t feel ready.
But if you want to get anywhere, you have to do thingsbefore you’re ready.
Other than eat spaghetti or watch Real Housewives, I’m never truly
ready to do anything. (See the rope swing pic below.) Everything I feel proud of doing, I did when every part
of me (especially the part comfortably parked on the sofa) was screaming “I’m
And as soon as you sign up, you’ll get access to Marie’s
awesome bonus guide called “The Follow-Through Formula.” Sound like something
you could use?
SPEAKING OF BONUSES…
Just in case you’re new here, I’ll
remind you that signing up through my link (the link all over this email) gets you the best B-School bonus out
there: a FREE Power Hour of Copy Coaching from me.
That’s a $500 value. Or, maybe, dare I say, priceless. Gina, a client I
helped last week, said that in just one hour, I made writing fun again. That’s gotta be worth something.
You can read more about my bonus and policies here:
And, finally, if you’re in Camp 3…
Did I ever mention Topless Gardening Day? Actually, it was
just called “Gardening Day.” But it was
on Sundays, and it was indeed topless. The counselors, with their big, swingin’
boobs out, would pick stringbeans alongside us campers while leading rounds of
the song “Johnny Appleseed.”
See, there’s something for everyone here. You can sign up for B-School, and get on that proverbial rope swing, or just enjoy this photo of me thinking, “I’M NOT READY!” Then, scroll to the pic below it and ask me, “Fool, what were you waiting for?”
Go for it!
