Danielle Laporte Rocks the Mic

April 22nd, 2009 by Lauren · 5 Comments

I love Danielle Laporte. She’s an awesome, creative, wicked-smart woman who we’ve been fortunate to know for many years. She’s the co-author of Style Statement: Live by Your Own Design, which she wrote with her former business partner, Carrie McCarthy; and now she’s working under the moniker White Hot Truth, writing, speaking, and working with creative entrepreneurial types to — in her own words — “rock their careers.”

I was excited to see this talk by Danielle appear on Rebecca Walker’s blog. She spoke at a recent Pecha Kucha night, an event where creative people get to show 20 images on slides, each shown for 20 seconds. It’s pithy, inspiring, and juicy, which is just how Danielle communicates in the rest of her life.

    Jackpot! I read an article about Danielle and Carrie a couple of years ago and never made note of their names – and have been kicking myself ever since! I loved the idea behind their business that helped people establish their style statements, but all I could remember is that they were two women based in Vancouver. Mystery solved – thanks! :)

    I just wanted to say thank you for writing such a smart and informative book. I have been reading it for the past few weeks, with a highlighter in one hand and a cup of tea in the other and have learned so much that I can apply to my very new business. I’m thrilled to discover you have a blog and look forward to visiting it often.

    tTotally inspiring, Danielle rocks! I first heard her at the Crave Shop Symposium a few weeks back. I’ve since signed up for her Vancouver Group Fire Starter session this weekend and I can’t wait!

    Always look forward to reading you gals here, great info, keep it up!
