Video-Interview with Danielle LaPorte!


Holy fireballs! Sound the alarm! I had the pleasure of interviewing Danielle LaPorte last Friday afternoon. We talked about branding, networking (she calls it “connecting” — I call it “hustling”), daily routines and being a Renaissance soul. Oh, and we played a ferocious game of word association.

what a refreshing interview. i really like your style. alot of interviews are so boring and you are so FUN! i know danielle and love her work. it was just so great to watch you shake it up a bit.

That was cool. Great interview.

You + Danielle = super amazeballs. I practically wet myself.

Great interview! I loved your style and questions. You were definitely radiating! Nice to “meet” you Alexandra.

DIGGING on the cosmic convergence of you two freaky-good women in one video. Very hot stripes, A! I love sloughing the sleaze of networking! Three cheers to rocking your OWN style–it’s critical to direct and meaningful communication–one person at a time or a thousand. IF you are down with what you are saying, it’s never bad-bragging. Tremendous questions–the day in the life/structure question is one we could ALL answer–NOW! The game rocked my world.

Hi, Alexandra,
I’ve been watching a lot of interviews with Danielle LaPorte and this is definitely one of my favorites. You asked great questions, I love your energy and the word associations at the end — genius! Thank you for sharing it.

ANNE: Glad you dig my style! Danielle LaPorte is one of my mega-role models, and it was an honor to interview her. Here’s to many more video-interviews (I’m a little addicted now) …
