Getting Over Getting Screwed: A Conversation With Danielle LaPorte
About Today’s Guest, Danielle LaPorte:
Gotta love Danielle LaPorte. A mixture of fire, honesty and sass (to go along with all kinds of crazy smarts).
A bit more about Danielle (right from her website, White Hot Truth):
-She writes. She writes on her site, White Hot Truth, and on other sites and magazines. She wrote THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS: a digital book for entrepreneurs. When the right big company comes along, she also creates hip, “culture” books for them to use as tokens of motivation and innovative marketing.
-She speaks. She speaks to audiences about authenticity and entrepreneurship and shares her experiences from ashrams to raising venture capital.
-She’s a strategic and intuitive business advisor.
-She designed a line of sassy-wise note cards.
Also, she never went to university, and a long time ago she had a real job co-running The Body Shop Canada’s Department of Social Inventions. She was also the Executive Directory of a Washington DC think tank, and ran her own communications and business development agency. She’s been featured in BusinessWeek.com, USAToday.com, Elle, Body + Soul, Vogue Australia, Better Homes & Gardens, Globe & Mail, The National Post, The Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight, and numerous talk shows.
In This Interview:
-A discussion of Danielle’s career.
-What it takes to be a rockstar writer.
-How to get over getting screwed.
-…and much more (including why innovation is BS).
