Danielle LaPorte’s new book, The Desire Map, is coming out on December 3rd and available for pre-order here on Amazon. I discovered this woman a few months ago and she struck me as some other version of myself. I suppose there are many persons in the world that contain a part of us – who we were, where we were, who we are, where we are, who we can become, where we can go. She is a woman who went from sales girl at The Body Shop to social media mogul and personal development writer, speaker and truth bomber who has inspired me enough that I decided to start a Book Club for her Desire Map book coming out on Tuesday, December 3rd.
Danielle talks about being useful. She focuses on being an entrepreneur and bringing your whole self, having it be a creative process, and speaking from your feminine (as a woman) rather than being in the masculine. Her concepts are not necessarily new, rather her manner of delivery is fresh, direct, honest, soulful and attractive. She is a beautiful woman in my mind. She speaks openly about her failed marriage, she married the same guy twice, and how she was fired from her own company – she started a company that was about to merge with Oprah and some partners decided to fire her. She is used to working with big heads (and egos) in the corporate world – there is a great story about her, here on Forbes Magazine. But, she finds herself in the process and continues to do so, (like all of us), but does so in a way that is eloquent, earthed and grounded. If you are a music lover you should follow her on Twitter @DanielleLaPorte as she often mentions musicians, albums, songs and lyrics.
Another reason I appreciate her wisdom of directness is that she gives us permission to be women in the feminine and believes that women should run the world – we bring food, speak our feelings, can work with friends. Danielle likes to say fuck a lot, but she also ends her sessions with prayers, or poems. And, unknowingly, it is all on demand, or command, from Spirit. I trust her as a leader, but even she warns, don’t make anyone your Guru.
I hope you will join us for our Phoenix, AZ book club at Alpha Book Center on January 7, 2014 at 6:30pm where we get to discuss the ALL NEWDesire Map. I am looking forward to meeting with and sharing with whomever shows up. You are showing up for yourself, speaking to you and us about your willingness to find your desires, the willingness to find your truth. Here is a SNEAK PEAK of a sample chapter of Desire Map.

I’ll be hosting a book club event as part of Danielle’s World’s Biggest Book Club at Alpha Book Center in Phoenix, AZ starting January 7th at 6:30pm. The focus of this book club event is to gather around the idea of desire, setting goals with soul and embracing gratitude as a practice. We’ll be coming together in communion and conversation to dig a little deeper and get clear about how we want to feel in the New Year.
I’d love for you to join me at the event as it really wouldn’t be the same without you. If you are interested, let me know and I will add you to the list as well as send you all of the details about the event. It’s going to be fun!
