Danielle LaPorte’s website, DanielleLaPorte.com, has been called “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” and named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes. Entrepreneur magazine summed Danielle up as, “equal parts poet and entrepreneurial badass…edgy, contrarian…loving and inspired.”
Danielle, who credits green juice to fueling her digital empire, was a director for a think tank on future studies prior to founding her wildly popular website. She also explored the fundamentals of Buddhist meditation. “I’m as stoked about pop culture as eastern mysticism,” Danielle says. “I’ve had conversations with thousands of women about what ‘success’ really means, and I’ve concluded that the best self-help is self compassion. And, true self love includes serving the world around you.”
Danielle believes that our relationship to ambition is inside out, which is why she wrote: The Desire Map: A Guide To Creating Goals With Soul. The book turned into an international facilitator’s program. She also wrote the book, The Fire Starter Sessions, to shake up notions of success.
Danielle, who is “often mistaken as an extrovert,” lives in Vancouver with her favorite person, her 12-year-old son. Her charity of choice is Eve Ensler’s V-Day, a movement to end violence against women and girls, because she believes that empowered women heal everything around them.
