On Desire, Authenticity, and Fire Starting Your Business - With Danielle LaPorte

"Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creative thing you can do with your life.

And not only do we have to put our feelings at the heart of our ambitions, we have to pursue our desires in a way that is life-affirming, rather than soul-depleting. Rigid goal-chasing is burning us out. Soul-anchored intentions are the way to get home." - Danielle LaPorte

It's happening people!







You are about to be ignited in ways you never thought possible.  Enlightened in ways that will keep your path lit for ages.  We're going to talk about feelings in a way that will rock your world and we're also going to talk about business strategy and how Danielle has created an empire of books, websites, and speaking engagements that are getting recognized around the globe. 

This woman is part "OMMMMM" (think legs crossed, eyes closed, thumb and first finger connected) + part no-nonsense strategy. 

And I got her on the air to talk about it.  They call her site the "best of the web". Now, she's going to be the "best of the airwaves!"

Introducing Danielle LaPorte

Danielle LaPorte is the outspoken creator of The Desire Map, author of The Fire Starter Sessions (Random House/Crown), and co-creator of Your Big Beautiful Book Plan. An inspirational speaker, former think tank exec and business strategist, she writes weekly at DanielleLaPorte.com, where over a million visitors have gone for her straight-up advice — a site that’s been named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes.

Danielle has been featured in Elle, Body + Soul, Vogue Australia, Better Homes & Gardens, Globe & Mail, The National Post, The Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight, USAToday and BusinessWeek.com. She was a news show commentator for CBC, and is a former director of a Washington-DC think tank, where she managed a team of analysts studying global trends for the likes of the Pentagon and the World Bank.

A list of “Top 10 Blogs by Women That Might Change Your Life,” describes Danielle LaPorte like this:

“She’s confidently contrarian, feminine, decisive, and creative. She combines spirituality with sound business principles. She has an e-program, a line of chic, minimalist notecards, and gives coaching sessions at $1000 a pop. She’s been listed, ranked and quoted. At the core of her success is her ability to write. She writes beautifully, lustfully, and poignantly and is quite possibly the most talented and insightful writer publishing on the web. If you haven’t experienced www.daniellelaporte.com, you are missing the best of the web.”

See you Monday, until then, Make it Happen!
