Publisher's Summary

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:

  • Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress then the craving for balance itself.
  • Being well-rounded is over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
  • Screw your principles (they might be holding you back).

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.

    Story
    "Inspiring book with practical advise"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fire Starter Sessions to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The parts on fear, the parts on not being scared of making happiness your priority over money and other mundane things


    Which character – as performed by Danielle LaPorte – was your favorite?

    She tries to make her American Southerner voice but although is not even close, she is funny


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Define the worse case scenario, that way fear no longer controls you


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "This is good"

    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.
