We have touched the world! I feel such gratitude how quickly our movement “Loving Life after Loss” rippled its impact all around our beautiful globe! Below are some of our own shows as well as a broad selection of other media appearances.
It is truly humbling to see the imprint we're leaving in so many people – thanks to various media opportunities!
A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and performances are shared with the community. TEDx is all about “ideas worth spreading”. During Covid, TEDx switched to online presentations, recorded in film studios.
I have fulfilled my dream of delivering a TEDx talk, which was first aired on 22 Feb 22. The topic I chose for this incredible event is “Redefining our Image of a Widow”. You can watch it right here:
Each Monday I kickstart your week with encouraging topics. These are usually ideas I pick up right from you lovely people, something that was said or raised within our movement. I share my thoughts and perspectives around it and unpack it with you.

If there's one thing Marie Alessi never wants to hear again, it's the sentence: “My condolences”.
The Sydney mother-of-two lost her husband Rob in 2018, then aged 45, from a fatal brain aneurysm in a hotel room in Perth. Rob was away on a business trip and never returned home.
Seventeen months after her husband died suddenly, Marie fell for another man. Was it too soon?
‘Society makes you feel so guilty, there is so much judgement.’
“I had started my own coaching business in 2011. I remember the amazing moment when in my first year I had reached the same income level that I had previously earned as an Account Director in advertising. Only now I was my own boss, my work more meaningful – and I did it in just 3 days a week during school hours – which meant, I was able to pick up my kids from school and spend time with them…”
We all deal with loss in our lives eventually – some of us a lot sooner than others. Often unexpected, like a needle scratching over the record player while playing your favorite happy song, and then your world turns silent. Suddenly everything feels in slow motion, while the world around you keeps spinning at a speed that leaves you reeling and dizzy.
Rob passed on a business trip, 5 hours flight away from us, in the prime of his life. He was 45, fit, loved to surf, loved life and most of all his family. Then a brain aneurism unplugged him, just like that. We had been married for 12 years, our boys’ were 10 and 8.
Marie's husband told her he'd call at 7.30am. By 7.31am she knew he had died.
When Marie woke up one morning in June 2018, she immediately knew something was wrong.
Her husband Rob, who was away on a business trip, had told her he’d call at 7.30 that morning.
“I looked at the clock and it was 7:31 and I know it was only one minute but something in my heart… I just had this feeling it was so bizarre. I just felt like something had happened,” Marie Alessi told Mamamia.
“Dealing with loss”
“Two years ago, my husband died suddenly. These are the lessons I've learned from his death.”

“Romance after loss”
Marie met someone 17 months after her husband died. Friends told her it was too soon.

Marie Alessi Helps Find Hope And Happiness In Times Of Grief
Marie Alessi spent a decade teaching people about ‘Mindset and Personal Growth’ when her own was very much put to the test by the very sudden and unexpected death of her husband Rob. Marie’s first reaction was to close down her business to be able to focus on their two young sons (only eight and ten at the time) and allow herself some time to cope with the loss.
But what did coping look like? How was she supposed to feel; what next? Her world had been turned upside down.
Good Grief with Cheryl Jones with Marie Alessi
Marie Alessi begun her Coaching Journey in 2011. After 10 years in advertising she started a family with the Love of her Life and ventured onto the new path of Self Development. Little did she know that these 7 years of helping and inspiring others, would be the armour to face life’s biggest adversity thrown at her. Marie unexpectedly lost her husband and father to their two boys in June 2018 to a brain aneurysm. Using her own tools and strong intuition, she designed her way back to Happiness and founded the global Movement “Loving Life after Loss”, which now creates massive impact on a soul level around the world. With empathy and understanding, Marie gently picks up her clients from where they are at – with a whole lot of respect for their very unique journey – and leaves you with choices that are yours to make
Practice what you preach
It is phenomenal what we can achieve when we focus our attention on healing.
We owe it to ourselves and our children!
