“Honestly, why would you allow your child not to try to be something? I don’t know anyone who becomes anything just by giving them money.” Marie shared with Us weekly. “To me, the greatest gift you can give your child is the passion to find who they are inside and to work. I mean I’ve done so many things since designing dolls [and much more]. i love to try [and] I want to try everything. I’m a finisher.”
Marie adding: “It’s one of my rules with my kids. If you start it, you finish it, you never have to do it again, but you have to finish it. And I just think everything [an inheritance] causes laziness and entitlement. I have worked hard and I will spend it all and have fun with my man [Steve Craig].”
