Are YOU a Fire Starter?: Book Review The Fire Starter Sessions by Danielle LaPorte #FireSS

Danielle LaPorte, Fire Starter Sessions, Book Review


We’re excited to announce that Danielle LaPorte’s book The Fire Starter Sessions is being released this month!

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak and I LOVED every inch of it.  I love how it feels like I’m listening to her talk as I read the words.  She has a great way keeping her speaking voice in her written words (I’m jealous of that!).  It’s like she’s sitting there talking to me, I like chat with girl friends.  It’s honest, it’s authentic and it’s incredibly moving.

The first time I sat down to read it every sentence made me say, “I need to tweet that…and that…and that.”  Everything was so juicy.  And to make it even better, my favorite part is that her best bits of wisdom are huge.  Unmissable.  Though every phrase might be tweetable, there are things she wants to make sure that you GET.  Here’s one of my favorites:

The typography is phenomenal.  It’s not a boring read.  Danielle’s personality even comes through the layout and font.

This book can help anyone step up their success game and light the fire to be your own authentic, powerful and amazing self.   It’s geared towards entrepreneurs though anyone can glean juicy wisdom from each page.

What I love about this book goes well beyond the words on the pages.  We started working with Danielle at Startup Princess almost 4 years ago.  Before The Spark Kit came out, before Your Big Beautiful Book Plan, before this book hits bookstores to become a New York Times Bestseller (I can feel it in my bones…).  Before all that, she was a blog writer and was a candid fire starter herself – out to squeeze the real passion out of every human being.  Igniting corporate professional cube sitters into budding, inspiriting entrepreneurs.  Looking back on the last 4 years has been a treat to watch, and a blueprint that any aspiring speaker, author and changemaker can pattern for success.  Share your voice for free online, inspire others in one-on-one coaching, get out there and speak, create phenomenal products then in four years, you could have your own best seller ready to hit the book stores.

This book is the perfect mix of helping find out who you really ARE and what you want to BE with the added bonus of helping you take the steps necessary to live your own great life.

As Danielle says, “Mindfulness and contemplation is only half the equation. You’ve got to take some action, Jackson.”

And honestly, the message that I got for me, was “What are you waiting for?”  Some juicy stuff is coming down the pipe, all because I read this book and because I love Danielle so much.

If you want to get in on the pre-order for the Fire Starter Sessions, check out the bonuses here.   The bonuses are only available until the book hits the stores on April 17th.  You won’t regret it, and you’ll be on your way to making a movement of your own.

Happy reading and Happy Friday!
