One of the upcoming events where I'm speaking is in Seattle next month. I'm so looking forward to Urban Campfire, not just because it's in an airplane hangar, but because we get to roast marshmallows and sit around campfires with small groups of other women! Fun!

We do not all want seven-figure salaries with bonuses if it means our life becomes a 60+ hour work week, insane amounts of stress, no pleasure and the idea that we have to know the football scores if we are going to sit in a room full of men.

Do You Feel Guilty For Your Dreams? Don't

Sometimes it can feel like dreaming of more than what we've got betrays our current reality. As if to wish for something different means that we're unappreciative of what we have. Dreaming and guilt should never be in the same room together.

On The Feeling Of Success (Will It Be Worth It When You Get There?)

Danielle LaPorte | Posted 02.04.2013 | Healthy Living
Danielle LaPorte

It's a crime against the human spirit that we so often disassociate positive emotions from the pursuit of success. We tell ourselves that It'll be worth it when we get there, and we grind and crank and endure our way to the goal posts.

What Business Are You Really In?

Danielle LaPorte | Posted 07.10.2012 | Healthy Living
Danielle LaPorte

You may be an event planner who is really in the business of stress management or trend spotting. Some doctors are more in the business of data dispensing than caretaking. The best hairstylists I know are actually in the healing and empowerment industry, and some of the best receptionists are in the same business as bodyguards-- they're protective ninjas. Some project managers exist to motivate. Yoga studios are community builders. Waiters sell charm, residential real-estate agents sell comfort, and we all know that bartenders are really in the therapy business.

It doesn't matter what you do for a living or from where your money flows; declaring how much money you want to earn, attract, and throw down is mighty empowering. Ideally, what you do for a living has something to do with your Creative Genius. It's always good to have your muse and your money in the same room.
