Confidence Builders

Welcome! I'm So Glad You're Here.

Hi!  I’m J. Marie and I’m the founder of the Believe and Create website.  “Believe and Create” stands for believe in yourself and create a happy life you love.  I’ve found that many people aren’t doing either, and in my little way, I hope to plant seeds to change that.

What Believe and Create Can Do For You

In 2013, I launched this blog with the intention of delivering inspirational and action-focused content that motivates you to create the vision and adopt the mindset and habits to live a confident, happy life (because, who doesn’t want to be happier, right?!). Now, more than a decade later, you’ll find hundreds of resources on B&C, all focused on helping you build the life you’ve always imagined. (One thought at a time; one habit at a time; one day at a time!)

Whatever Brought You Here Today, You’ve Found B&C for a Reason

Trust your gut; you were guided to this site for a reason and that means there is something important here for you, even if you’re not sure what that is just yet. So take some time to explore the site, join B&C on your favorite social networks, and sign up for BC’s Happy, Confident Life weekly newsletter so you don’t miss out on the latest ideas we share.
