YOU-NICORN is a book with 30 days of exercises (to be done sequentially or not, it's up to you) to find your inner unicorn and live the life you love. The exercises are designed to help you find and eliminate your limiting beliefs, get inspired to create your dream life, forgive yourself and others, and find rockstars to share your life with. Yes, I know it's a big promise, but I think you'll find that it delivers (and is also fun).
YOU-NICORN is an illustrated self-help book, organized into 30 sequential exercises, intended to be completed at a rate of one per day. The book is in four parts, with six days of action steps, and one rest day per week.
The book is written in a playful manner, while tackling (sometimes) challenging topics. Many people have reported life-changing effects from the book.
Part 1: YOU-NICORN
You'll re-embark on the adventure of a lifetime: YOUR LIFE (already in progress). In the first week, we'll look at how strong you are, evaluate what success means to you, as well as check out some habits that may be holding you back.
Part 2: It's an inside job
In the second week, we'll deep dive into some attitudes and limiting beliefs that are probably stopping you from living your fullest life. And then we'll --BLAMMO-- break those suckers down.
Part 3: Relationships
In the third week, we'll learn "The Angry Person's Forgiveness" (don't worry, it's pretty fun!) and build our team of supremely awesome unicorns!
Part 4: The tool kit
In the final week, we'll do some fun goal-setting exercises so you can identify the next steps in achieving them! And we'll add to your tool kit with meditation and journaling.
Sound fun and interesting?
"I love the bite-size nature of the content and tasks, and while it’s very manageable and bite size it’s still incredibly impactful."
"It feels like having a fun, supportive and challenging conversation with a mentor who is also a caring friend."
"It's the kind of book that you'd find yourself coming back to again and again!"
"Clarity, affirmation, a loving kick in the pants... YOU-NICORN magic is real. Every step brought me closer to the life I’m meant to live."
"It helped me dig really deep to see what my obstacles were (relationships chapter, anyone?), and provides clear guidance on how to overcome with some laugh out loud AND 'AHA!' moments."
Danielle left her corporate life at the Oprah Winfrey Network to start a small handmade soap business and become a writer.
Her mission is to help people live their richest, fullest, and most unicorny lives possible.
Her career has spanned industries and job titles, but has one common thread: results-based achievement through the application of my unique skills. She speaks the language of the content team, the legal team, the tech team, the design team, and the marketing team, and have been able to translate each to the others. She builds relationships and foster mutual respect wherever she goes.
Danielle's career has far exceeded the bounds of office life. She has contributed to the GoDaddy Garage site and Pyragraph Magazine, and been interviewed on several podcasts (mostly for business advice).

“Life can be so much more than surviving. And damn it, I think you deserve so much more than just survival. I want you to look that trauma in the eye, and say, ‘I survived. I’m still here.’”
“Life can be a full-on rainbow dance of celebration through what we can only assume is a finite and ever-diminishing span of our lives. We must not just walk forward, we must dance forward!”
“You deserve to thrive. You deserve to dance.”
“You aren’t a messy person. You aren’t a drama queen. You aren’t a loser. You aren’t an alcoholic. You aren’t a lawyer. You aren’t broke. You aren’t any one thing.
You can do things, and you can repeatedly do things. But that doesn’t make you those things.”
“When we stop caring what other people think and start pursuing our own happiness, we give other people something really solid about ourselves to get to know: We give them us.”
“There are only two places to go from here: forward, or backward. And you don’t want to go backward.”

I love Danielle’s brand (and I love her sudsy creations Hair of the Dog may be one of my faves.)
And, I LOVE that she embraces goals the way she does. You ll hear in our conversation that creatives don't always go the goal route it's more like flying by the seat of your pants.
Danielle proves all us creative wrong you absolutely CAN create goals that don't make you feel pinned down, out of integrity, or like you're headed into corporate culture mindset.
Danielle's excited to work with you on any press coverage, interviews, podcasts, photo shoots, giveaways, or whatever. Really, just ask.
