Hot Giveaway: Boss of You + Firestarter Sessions at Covet Chicago

September 2nd, 2010 by Lauren · 1 Comment

The delightful Brigitte of Covet Chicago has a really beautiful giveaway up on her site right now (if we do say so ourselves): one lucky winner will receive a signed copy of The Boss of You along with a copy of Danielle Laporte‘s The Firestarter Sessions.

Brigitte has done a lovely job of describing why she’s chosen these two items and why she wants to share them. I’m touched to be included, and any day I get to be side-by-side with Danielle is a good day. I suggest you head on over there & join the party – and don’t forget to tell your friends.

Oh, and Brigitte also asked me a great question (“What was a catalyst that helped you define what you wanted out of your career – and what you didn’t? What did you learn about yourself?“) that I took as an opportunity to tell the world just how awesome my business partner is:

Emira makes me better at my work, period. I hope I do the same for her. (I assume I must, since she’s stuck around for 10 years. Or maybe I just make her laugh. I’m good with either.) We trust each other with everything from sharing the responsibility for each other’s financial well-being (no small thing, that) to the emotions that accompany the highs and lows of entrepreneurship.

The kind of relationship we have is rare. Like, unicorn rare.

The rest of my answer is here.
