Talking Desires with Danielle LaPorte

molly mahar & danielle laporte holiday council

It’s no secret that registration for the fourth annual Holiday Council is open.  And I’m totally ready.

We’ll be reflecting on 2013 and dreaming for 2014 starting on December 2nd.

The Councils are online pow wows that gather like-minded ladies together for 21 fast-paced days and address the juiciest issues facing us as ambitious, connected, soulful women.  If you haven’t tried one yet, now is definitely the time.

If you’re ready to dive into your own life with compassionate awareness, align with your true potential by dreaming your ass off, and set yourself up for success in the new year with actionable plans — this December exploration is for you.

Take the time and space to connect to your own wisdom, sugar.

Together, we’ll release and renew.

Dream and scheme.

Plot and plan.


One of my favorite parts of The Council is sharing the interviews I’ve been doing with inspiring women from around the web.  This year I thought long and hard about who I wanted to talk to — I wanted women who seemed to manifest true magic in their lives, who had killer years, who were really embracing joyful devotion to their dreams.

So I made some big asks. And I got some big beautiful yeses.

I always want the inside scoop (I promise I give them fair warning!), so I made sure I had permission to quiz them about the “behind the scenes” — to really dig into stories of both success and failure.

You’ll hear me say multiple times, “And what does that look like in your life?  And how do you do that?  What’s your ritual?”

I’m not as interested in theory as I am in personal practices.  And self-deprecating stories. And loads of laughter.

I am totally in love with the conversation I had with Danielle LaPorte — we dove into her surprise book deal, the importance of both her girlfriends and her gas fireplace, her devotion to reflecting on what she no longer wants to compromise on, and her backstage diva demands.

And desires.  Lots and lots of desires.

Not only was Danielle darling enough to talk with me in the final push to launch her new site and debut her entire Desire Map Collection, but she also wanted ALL OF YOU to benefit.

Thus, a sneak peak! So fun!  Happy Everything!

Help yourself to…

32 entire minutes of me asking D about the massive changes 2013 brought and the magic she has on tap for 2014.

If you like what you hear, there are 6 additional interviews included when you join  The Holiday Council.


Looking forward to spending December in community with you!
