I don't mind admitting that i have bit of a girl-crush on Danielle LaPorte; I'm never easily influenced by other people, preferring to figure stuff out for myself, but when i find someone who speaks the truth, I listen carefully and make notes. Last year I invested in a Fire Starter Session with Danielle and it turned out to be the best investment I have made in my business so far; I needed to talk through my plans, i wanted to get an expert's opinion on how things were panning out and where to go next, and i got all that and so much more. She's run businesses and a Washington think-tank; she wrote the hugely inspiring book Style Statement and now counsels entrepreneurs with her business savvy and expertise.
But what i appreciate the most about Danielle is how her business wisdom translates into life wisdom. This week sees the pre-launch of her new book, The Fire Starter Sessions, a downloadable e-book, meets video seminar, meets cosmic transmission of love (I'm counting down the days till i get my hands on it - see? I'm a groupie :) If you pre-order this week you'll get a sneak peek of one of the chapters; the worldwide release is on May 12th. If you're self-employed in any way shape or form - or aspire to explore your entrepreneurial side - this is the book for you (and it's tax deductible!)
I interviewed Danielle for my Creative Life series back in November (and answered her Burning Questions in return); wanting to help spread the word about her work I asked her some questions this week, and am thrilled to share her video responses with you over here - enjoy!
