My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Though I love Danielle Laporte’s web presence and overall attitude, I was not sure how I would enjoy FSS because I had already purchased and worked through the digital version of the program (that is no longer available btw) about a year ago. That program rocked my world and my business–big time. I expected to get a lot of the same information, same worksheets, and same overall feel from the book as I had from the program-and to some extent that was the case.
With that said, I LOVED the book and am so glad that I bought it. First off, its purty! Even my design finicky husband loved the look and the layout of the book-so much so that he stole my copy! Secondly it is chockfull of great quotes, good writing, and penetrating insights inspired by wins and losses in business, money making, and partnerships. Laporte is an interesting mix of high-end business savvy, womanliness, and spiritual kick boxing all rolled into one well coifed (and heeled) package.
FSS is probably most correctly categorized as a motivational book but it really ranges in topic from how you feel about money making to naming your strengths, to plotting out your specific dream trajectory. For magically/spiritually inclined folks Danielle’s approach may call to mind New Thought style but she adds accountability and a sense of each of us being part of a bigger whole to the mix. Also, the first section of her book is entitled “Mojo”–need I say more?
Her writing touches on themes in Buddhism before sauntering over to earthy life insights delivered with good humor and then sprints to the practical “boots on the ground” situation that her reader is dealing with in the here and now. Whether you are starting a business, taking care of your kiddo, leaving a lover, or simply dreaming about discovering what you really *should* be doing-this book instigates & motivates. I finished it in two days and to me that is a testament of how really good it is-because I have a one year old and a full time job but I still made the time for it–and I am so very, very, glad that I did.
