Danielle LaPorte is the creator of The Desire Map: A Guide To Creating Goals With Soul, author of the bestseller, The Fire Starter Sessions (with Random House/Crown), and co-creator of Your Big Beautiful Book Plan. An inspirational speaker, poet, former think tank exec and business strategist, she writes weekly at, where over a million visitors have gone for her straight-up advice — a site that’s been deemed “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” and was named one of the “top 100 websites for Women” by Forbes. The Huffington Post included her Twitter feed in their list “12 of the wisest Twitter accounts worth following.”

I really wanted to invite Danielle on the show because I just had this feeling she would bring such an enlightened, spiritual way of thinking about money to the table…

Three Takeaways from the Interview:

  • How gratitude is not only part of her spiritual practice, but also part of her bottom line
  • Getting fired from her own company and living off of many credit cards for a while…and her transformation
