Author, Denise Barreto

This is the first part of a 2-part discussion with Denise Barreto, author of the book, From Here to There: 5 Steps to Doing Your Life’s Work Every Day. (listen to Part 2)

Denise has identified a 5-step process that will allow you to do your life’s work no matter where you are in your career or life journey.

Denise asserts that you do not need to be an entrepreneur to pursue your life’s work.  You can do your life’s work right where you are right now!

In this episode, Denise shares personal anecdotes of how she honed her best skills long before she left her job to do her life’s work as a small business owner.  Her story will inspire you.

(In Part 2 of the discussion, Denise and I talk through the 5-step process, step-by-step so be sure to tune in next week as well!)

About Steve

Hi, I'm Steve Rice and my goal is to transform simple philosophical truths into practical fuel to revolutionize your life. It's not about self-help, it's about self-reliance. I show you how. Connect with me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter and let me know how I can help you.

  • Great interview. Looking forward for the second part.

    Very impressed with ms. Barretto.

    Helping people to decipher their best aptitudes is one of the best things you can do to help them (maybe the best). If you haven’t seen “the Butterfly Circus”, take a look at Youtube. I highly, highly recommend it.

    • Hola, amigo mio…I have to tell you, Denise is a rockstar! She’s one of those people really making it happen in her own life. A true inspiration.

      I think you’re 100% right,@gustrafo:disqus . Helping people gain clarity about what their place is in the world (and how to exercise all of their potential) is an amazing way to contribute to the earth.

      BTW…I’m jumping out to YT now to look at the “circus” vid you recommended. Thanks for sharing this post and engaging in the conversation. I appreciate you.

  • Love hearing you guys!! Can’t wait for part 2!

    P.S. We’d have such a blast together so we gotta find time this year for us all to hook up!

    • I agree…if you ever come back up to Chicago, let me know and I’ll drive down and meet up. It would be cool to do a biz weekend sometime…like Deone says, a “sharpening” of friends.

      Part 2 is even better as we walk through the 5 steps. I’m excited to do more of this type of stuff on my podcast going forward.
