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’sstraight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have been read by 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dina London | 2/14/2014

    " Danielle LaPorte is a great narrator which can't be said about most authors. She has a wonderful voice and a unique motivational style. I've ordered the paper edition from the library as many parts of the book were not conducive to audio. While many of the things she had to say weren't new, sometimes an inspirational pep talk is all you need to send you in a new direction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/13/2014

    " Like a shot of expresso to re-charge your creative spirit! Clever, direct, and do-able! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/8/2014

    " This is an amazing book; it will kick start anyone wavering on the fence to action. Want to figure out where you're going in life? Read this book. I love Danielle because she is non apologetic, kick ass, and gentle all at the same time. Her thoughts offer motivation, asks some hard questions, and makes you wonder why you're still on the couch reading it when you know what you have to do to create forward movement in your life. This will be a reference that I return to often. "

    " Generic self-help stuff; author uses a ton of outdated slang and seems annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Arkesteyn | 1/30/2014

    " This was a great book. Do the work at the end of each chapter! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 KJ Grow | 1/22/2014

    " Would be a good jolt to the system for anyone in a rut or looking for a fresh perspective, but I'm enough of a self-help junkie that I didn't find anything particularly groundbreaking here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bettina Judd | 1/19/2014

    " Ever had the feeling you read this already? Exactly. "

    " I enjoyed this well enough, and it had some gems in it for me, but her approach and general ethos in life are just a little too far out for me for me to finish it. "

    " Fabulous! Absolute must read for anyone looking to find their way to success, purpose and sustainable life satisfaction. Danielle has a kick-ass style - simultaneously encouraging, inspiring and motivating. I like to think of this book as my personal success coach in hardcover... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 11/29/2013

    " I thought I would love this book but her "you're a rockstar" "time to shine, bitches" "go for it" type of "witty", choppy writing really irked me. I felt like her message was good but she was trying too hard. The questions were great at the end of the chapters, so it wasn't a total bust. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elisabeth | 11/10/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 11/2/2013

    " Damn, this book is good. I highly recommend it for anyone who is considering change, of any form. Not only do you feel driven to set out to conquer your dream, but you want to help others with theirs, too. Empowering, inspirational, I want to read a chapter every morning to get a kickstart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Smith | 5/9/2013

    " While a lot of the information is similar to other books, I really liked Danielle's style. Her writing is refreshing and conversational. She was good at drawing connections into real life. My favorite part, however, was the last page - that is what motivated me the most. "
