On Martha’s Bookshelf: The Firestarter Sessions

First of all, I want to shout out to the many people who have been giving me books by mail and in person. It is always an honor to receive a heartfelt book and I seem to attract that honor at a level that has now outstripped my reading speed. If I have not contacted you about a book you have given me, please accept my thanks and apologies.

This month I’m happy to recommend Danielle LaPorte’s The Firestarter Sessions. This book has kick-ass instructions to motivate and inspire business people, but please don’t let that make you think it’s a business book. Danielle’s way of approaching any action is smart, energizing and empowering. Those of you who have attended the Sedona Star or Master Coach Michael Trotta’s workshops know that making fire can be astonishingly difficult. I, for one, would hesitate even to try without the help of a master fire-maker but you also know when you breath life into a smoking ember and it finally bursts into flames you know in that moment that you can create anything. The Firestarter Sessions are well named: Danielle LaPorte really can ignite your business sense, whether it’s entrepreneurial, corporate, or completely woo woo. Like Prometheus, her goal is not to start your fire but to give you the gift of becoming a firestarter yourself. I urge your to accept that gift.
