Listening to Danielle is like having an amazing conversation with a new best friend you just met, I loved her book firestarter and I recommend it to anybody
Love everything about Danielle and this book! Listenening to it sparks my inspiration and makes me want to go out and build my dreambusiness right now! Filled with sooo much wisdom, tools and tips. And Danielles unique way of telling beautiful storys in her own poetic language.
(I also recommend Danielles second book The desire map)
Reader of wisdom, constantly hungry to improve.
I like her voice, I think her voice tone is clear, relaxing, and sweet. I haven't bought the print version, I usually listen to books.
The parts on fear, the parts on not being scared of making happiness your priority over money and other mundane things
She tries to make her American Southerner voice but although is not even close, she is funny
Define the worse case scenario, that way fear no longer controls you
She drops a few F bombs here and there, I didn't like that on the audio, it may offend some people, I think the F bombs in the audio should be taken off, the book has some beautiful content and then suddenly an F bomb.. just doesn't feel right.
This book gets more useful with each listen. More affirming. More wry nods. Thank you. I consider this my favorite stock taker when I at pivotal moment in my business.
Read by LaPorte, much of the otherwise too cute vernacular is completely authentic. It is intimate, insightful and far less fluffy than I had feared. (Starting a new business? LaPorte's most important advice: "Go and fetch the money." At the same time, she frames how much is enough.)
The text is peppered with apposite and unusual quotes. She is generous to those whose ideas have influenced her, giving acknowledgement and thorough references in case you want more background.
I am precious about my listening time but this one will get a second listen.
Danielle LaPorte's books are always fabulous and inspiring, and while her voice is lovely this is one that I would much rather pick up the physical book than listen to just because of the content.
She is awesome :)
Listened to it twice in the car over a few weeks
Get it x
I highly recommend this book, especially if you are at a major crossroads in your life! I had recently been “laid off” (total blessing!) and needed some soul igniting guidance on how to recreate my dream work for this season of my life.
Some of my favorite quotes from the book are:
"Being your true self is the most effective formula for success."
"Your most valuable currency is what comes most naturally to you."
"If it doesn't light you up, you're not the right person for the job."
"When being real is your priority, the various parts of your life start to groove. Your career will begin to reflect your true passion; your living room will match your values; your friends will fit your soul; and your wealth - of which there are many definitions - will start to measure up with your notion of freedom."
This is seriously some of the best advice I heard in a loooong time. I listened to the audiobook twice already, so I could let the wisdom soak into my being. Plus I LOOOOOVE Danielle's voice!
