Swadharma & Heart-Centered Entrepreneurship With Danielle Laporte


When I first came across Danielle LaPorte’s work 8 years ago, I was working at the Keg serving steaks and beer, and just knew I was meant to change the world and be of service (but not food service! Lol).

I went to an event where Danielle was speaking. I didn’t know who she was at the time, but my God, was I inspired! I didn’t know that entrepreneurship and service could look like that. I didn’t see many examples of people being as real and expressed like she was. It was so refreshing to me.

And since I’ve been following Danielle over the last 8 years, I’ve seen her work evolve, but the core of her authenticity and integrity has been there all alone.

She brings this beautiful element of duality; she brings the love and the sh*t. It was an absolute honor to have this conversation with her! We jammed on all things divinity embodied, living your purpose, and finding peace through simplicity.

She was also bold enough to share her biggest lessons from her “dark night”, almost quitting entrepreneurship, and getting off the self-help hamster wheel.

If you’ve ever wondered how to heal when you feel lost or disconnected from yourself or your purpose, then this episode is for you. Especially if you resonate with being a leader, or heart-centered entrepreneur!

In this episode, Danielle LaPorte shares:

  • What’s “Swadharma” and how it’s different from Dharma
  • The anatomy of a “Dark Night of the Soul” (and what she learned from hers)
  • The intersection between business and spirituality and how to be a heart-centered entrepreneur who dances between stillness and productivit

Thanks for tuning in!
