Business plans are one of the last remaining spaces in publishing where intimidating lingo, dry writing, and overly long verbiage are still the norm. You know what these books look likebig and manual-like, theres usually a middle-aged man standing with his arms crossed (or pointing!) on the cover, making promises in all caps about the money youll make.
The Conquer Kit is an interactive journal experience that brings business planning into the realm of play. Readers are invited to sketch, scribble, glue, dream, and write on the pages . . . all while developing an airtight business plan with proven money-making methods and strategies. Author and entrepreneur Natalie MacNeil encourages readers to build a strong foundation with the four pillars of every successful business (the right name, the right business setup and entity, a sound legal structure, and a basic financial system), create heart-centric products and marketing plans, put together their A team, envision the bigger picture, and bring their dream business to life.
The Fire Starter Sessions is an apathy-kicking, integrity-infusing guide to defining success on your own terms.
As the creator of DanielleLaPorte.com--deemed “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” Danielle LaPorte’s straight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have been read by over one million people. Bold but empathetic, she reframes popular self-help and success concepts:
: Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress then the craving for balance itself.
: Being well-rounded is over-rated. When you focus on developing your true strengths, you enter your mastery zone.
: Screw your principles (they might be holding you back).
: We have ambition backwards. Getting clear on how you want to feel in your life + work is more important than setting goals. It's the most potent form of clarity that you can have, and it's what leads to true fulfillment.
