The Fire Starter Sessions is an apathy-kicking, integrity-infusing guide to defining success on your own terms.
As the creator of DanielleLaPorte.com - deemed "the best place online for kick-ass spirituality," Danielle LaPorte’s straight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have inspired over one million people. Bold but empathetic, she reframes popular self-help and success concepts:
We have ambition backwards. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It's the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it's what leads to true fulfillment.

"Danielle’s passion leaps off the page, and reading a few chapters of this book will ignite you into action.” (Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project)
I feel the author truly believes and lives by the words written; however, the book didn't feel like a natural form of communication for the writer. There were places where I felt it was obvious she used a type of writing structure or strategy.
In this kind of book, and the aura I think she was going for, it should feel a bit more free-flowing.
Danielle breaks through myths, sluggish motivation, and barriers I've used for years! She openly talks about love, narrowing focus, and chaos as needed parts of the adventure I am creating of my life. She is a dynamic narrator as well as writer and I hope that everyone follows her lead and opens to their own best life! I'm on fire and I start now.
Me. PaSsports I am grateful to you!!!!
Danielle Laporte ' s passion for life is beautifully portrayed throughout this book. You not only hear the words but feel her enthusiasm through her own voice. I will definitely listen to this audiobook over and over! rock on!
Lover of art, cats, traveling, hiking, nature, music, and solitude.
No idea how I would rank it since it doesn't really "fit" with my usual listening topics. This is the kind of book I might have preferred to have a hard copy of as I found the different lessons difficult to follow in this format.
The ending? There isn't one, really.
I found the narration to be distracting. It is the author reading it, which is cool, but she's so "flowery" in her writing and her narration just emphasized this point. It was actually really annoying.
I have to say that she really does have some inspiring things to say about doing what you love. This book motivated me to sign up for some classes on herbalism, a topic I've been interested in since childhood. I felt motivated to look at things I really love to do and find ways to incorporate them in a more serious manner into my life.
I can't get behind the "flowery" writing or New Age stuff, BUT this is a book I intend to listen to again. If you're into New Age thought, you're gonna love this book.
