My goal is to help kick off the year not just with ideas and dopey resolutions that always evaporate with time, but with insights, access to real answers and the opportunity to learn from potential mentors, paradigm-shifters and serious thinkers.
And, as I’ve mentioned before, one of my criteria for selecting them is that they’ve gained their insights not by failing at everything else, then getting certified to tell other people what to do.
Rather, they’ve gone out into the world, taken risks, declared visions, struggled, suffered, sometimes even got crushed, then grew, climbed back from the abyss and eventually created stunning business and career outcomes for themselves. And now many of them are also helping other people create similar outcomes.
Now, onto Real-World Business & Lifestyle Mastery Guide #4—Danielle LaPorte.
A recent list of “Top 10 Blogs by Women That Might Change Your Life,” describes Danielle like this:
“She’s confidently contrarian, feminine, decisive, and creative. She combines spirituality with sound business principles and is successfully doing everything that I should be doing with my “jack of all trades” entrepreneurial, designer, branding background.
She has an e-program (The Fire Starter Sessions), a line of chic, minimalist note cards, 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.
Danielle reminds us that the internet IS the new essential business medium and that talented people can rise to the top creating lives and careers that rock the soul. If you haven’t experienced www.whitehottruth.com, you are missing the best of the web.”
Danielle has also been featured in Elle, Body + Soul, Vogue Australia, Better Homes & Gardens, Globe & Mail, The National Post, The Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight, and most recently 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.
Based in Vancouver, BC, she’s working on her next book for Random House, the “life edition” of The Fire Starter Sessions. You can find her on Twitter as @daniellelaporte.
When I was talking to Danielle about what we should do for you guys, she came up with a killer idea.
Danielle does one-hour individual Fire Starter Sessions with clients…at $1,000 an hour. And she’s currently not accepting any new session appointments until something like June 2011.
But, this week, Danielle has agreed to do a live Fire Starter Session with 2 or 3 insanely lucky people on a conference-call on Wednesday.
And instead of $1,000…it’ll cost, er, um, ohhhh nothing!
Here’s how it’ll work:
Step 1: Plead your case in the comments:
- Tell us why you need Danielle to rock your world in a live Fire Starter Session
- Specificity earns brownie points.
- Tell us the name of and/or type of business (give us your website if you have one)
- Share your types of revenue streams (actual or intended), and
- Share 2 to 3 questions for us.
Step 2: You MUST be on the call – Because she’s gonna announce the 2 or 3 winners live on the call and, if you’re not on the line, we’re moving on to the next person.
Two really important things, here. One, the selection process will be 100% not-random, totally-subjective, slanted, emotionally-driven and utterly unscientific. We’re gonna choose based on heart.
And, two, when we did Bryan’s call, 730 people signed up, which blew our minds and forced us to bump up to 250 lines and we still maxed those out. So, call-in early to make sure you don’t get closed out of the call. If you call in and all the lines are already taken, that’s on yooz!
Our goal is to use the hour or so to work with 2 people, but we may be able to fit in a third, too. No promises, we’re keeping it fast and loose (that means each person will get somewhere around 20-30 minutes). And, obviously, if you’re chosen, there’ll be others listening to the call and even more to the recording, so only enter if you’re willing to let the tribe learn from your amazing experience with Danielle.
Seriously, how cool does that sound?
Here are the details:
- Date & Time: Weds | Jan 26th | 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST
- Format: 60-ish-minute conference call – Conversation with Danielle and me.
- Price: Um…nothing
So, FIRST, scroll down to the comments and, make your case to be chosen for the live Fire Starter Session.
THEN, whether you want to vie to be chosen or just listen in, come back here and drop your email into the form below to get the call-in details (this is just so we can send you a reminder on Weds, the list will be erased after that):
UPDATE: This call is now over, but you can listen to the recording here.
