Fully Alive: Using the Lessons of the Amazon to Live Your Mission in Business and Life by Tyler Gage. 

On giving feedback (don’t) and a somewhat shamanic approach to business

“The shamanic approach says, ‘Try X and see what happens for yourself. If you decide it’s useful, then great. If not, fuck it, try Y.'” Shortcuts vs. building true strength, gripping logic vs. the heart as your CEO. How your shadow plays into your career, how your spirit guides your bottom line, and how powerful you become when you get clear on what/who/why you’re REALLY serving. I read every page.

 On giving feedback (don’t) and a somewhat shamanic approach to business

This magic question: What are you working on and how can I help?
And why you should never give feedback.

Solid gold from Strengths Finder master, Marcus Buckingham:

Business Marcus B

Hey, Fire Starter People! is simple and lite, intended to help you shine at doing good work. You’ll get two brief emails a month. One is philosophical perspective for getting clear and staying determined. And the other monthly missive features a product, service, or how-to (from the people we turn to), and things we use to run our business — our first-hand experience.

Try it out HERE. And meet other Fire Starter People in The Fire Starter Sessions Facebook GroupThere’s good work to be done. The world needs more people shining, and if we can do that more efficiently, all the better!

All Love,

Holidaze, holy days, and lightening it all up.

Holidaze, holy days, and lightening it all up.

Ah, the holidays. Togetherness, twinkly lights, and… mass overconsumption, obligation, and so many opportunities for distraction. Most of us approach distraction as a time management issue—how we wrangle our to-do lists and goals.

Hey Fire Starter People

I’m in awe of your heart-work.

Dear Coaches, Teachers, Counselors… People who serve. If you’re in the business of Soul-work and service, how do take care of yourself?

Burn your journals. Maybe. Danielle LaPorte

Burn your journals. Maybe. Either way, here’s some inspiration on letting go.

I burned about 20 years of journals. Pages and pages of gut-red poetry and angst; cosmic gorgeousness and tender prayers; lists of wants, boyfriends (a loose term), and favourite perfumes. With every page I fed into the fireplace, I smiled. Thank you. Goodbye. Hellohhh here & now…

Danielle LaPorte How our business gives back

How our business gives back

When I started my own business, I made a decision to be public about our charitable giving. It was a practice I learned from Anita Roddick and the Canadian-based leaders (all women) of The Body Shop. The Body Shop was my first job-job and it baked the concept of a triple bottom line into my happily bleeding heart. The idea of sharing this is to inspire giving through business. I think we’re all gifters at heart. The flow of allowing and aiding is our natural way of being.

Been burned? Betrayal, denial, and the bloody beauty of it all.

Been burned? Betrayal, denial, and the bloody beauty of it all.

I’ve been betrayed — severely. Thank God. Betrayal is such a defining experience — it lays your heart bare, and that’s a bloody, good thing. Bloody good.

Being betrayed by another person is often (not always,) a reflection of how you were betraying yourself. It’s a lie looking back at you.
