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 overrated. 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. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

All ready have, must read for anyone looking for a massive boost to life

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

What does Danielle LaPorte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Her voice is so easy to listen to, made the whole experience that more inviting

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Every chapter is just as good as the other

Any additional comments?

Wow wow I have listened & owed many many personal development books in life but I wish I had heard about this earlier, I have never ever written a review but felt if anyone is looking at this and not sure my words may make the difference to not missing out on this amazing lady & all her great thoughts.

Mesmerising, hot stuff, soothing electric voice

Diving into the audio, being fascinated by the empowering summary on how to rock your own world successfully, in style, with charm and full throttle connected to the soul, was like a linguistic fireworks for me.
Much love to Danielle.
And thanks for the recommendation Louise.

Can't recommend this book enough

This book is just amazing. I am in awe of it and can't recommend it highly enough. It's so easy to listen to just out it in while driving/ commuting or working and you will feel so blessed you discovered this book :)

Blindingly good

Totally set me on fire from the inside. It's a keeper. Right up there with Gabby Bernstein. Only with an even more beautiful voice. It's a total keeper. Will listen again and again. Frankly... I have a bit of a girl crush. It's useful, soulful and inspiring.

Amazing book where have I been without you!

Danielle la Porte rocks! This has confirmed for me a lot of what I thought I knew but had doubts. Trust your instinct, passion, gut and work it hard, keep going, never give up!
You are a saint Danielle, thanks

fire starter

I really enjoyed this and even though it's geared towards business, you can use a lot of the advice in general life.

Fire-powered kick up the bum

Where does The Fire Starter Sessions rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Easily one of the best books I've ever bought.

What did you like best about this story?

It brings about some real home-truths, and encourages you to go for the things you REALLY want in life, not just the fundamental every-day crap, but the stuff of your true dreams.

Have you listened to any of Danielle LaPorte’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This performance is as great as all the others, if not better.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wouldn't be able to listen to it in one sitting, as there's so much to absorb. However, I can happily listen to several chapters whilst I'm driving or working at my desk.

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for some direction in life, and want support that goes with it, this is a great place to start!
