Let me say this upfront: I’m not one to fall in love easily. I fit into that category of people who were raised without lots of “I love you” tossed around. We are the more understated type (which drives my husband crazy!). That makes what I’m about to say a little bit odd for me…
I adore Danielle LaPorte.
Like fan-girl crush adore her. Just in a business way.
Why am I business crushin’ on Danielle (or more precisely, what makes me read all her blog posts as soon as they hit my mailbox)? Not rip off Elizabeth Barrett Browning, but let me count the ways…(yes, it was Elizabeth, not Shakespeare…I checked.)
- Unique combination of business and reality
- Heartfelt shout-outs for the best + the brightest
- An inspiration for making it happen
- Pulling people along, pushing them…and starting fires in their businesses
- Superhero give-back powers including pay what you can days, charity-focused promotions and geniune investment in the human condition
- Twitter and Facebook posts that quote song lyrics
- Amazing analogies + fantastic storytelling
Think role model. Think business mentor. Think advocate. All of which makes me a better business owner + human being.
Who is your secret business crush on…and why? If you wanna come out of the closet with it, share it below. It’s more important that you know why yourself than to tell us…but we can keep a secret.
