On the couch, Marie explained why she quit her first job on Wall Street to pursue her passion, even when it meant choosing between that and a steady paycheck (6:52). She shared how her journey to confidence came from disciplines as wide ranging as publishing, to bartending, to dance (15:30), and the one thing that makes her tell entrepreneurs to, “wake the eff up” (22:09).
