Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Free, Nourished, Love, Ignited

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

My first experience with The Desire Map was during a period of difficult transition. I spent three days engrossed in the book, digging up some deep stuff, and really connecting with my feelings in a way that was both enlightening and empowering. I led virtual Desire Map book clubs prior to becoming a Licensee. Now, I make it an annual process. I love looking back at my goals and seeing how they have stayed the same, changed, and evolved. What I love about The Desire Map is that there is no "right way" to do it, it's totally unique to you.

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

The biggest impact so far has been shifting my thinking from asking myself - "What am I going to do today?" to "What am I going to feel today?" This has been radically transformative, and I am teaching this process to my daughters. I ask them how do you want to feel today - and they usually say happy, great, good. So we make a plan on how to fulfill that. I see the light spark in their eyes when we plan that way.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

Oh goodness where do I begin. Because it really feels like soul work. Because it is time for all of us to rise to our deepest desires. To design a life of our choosing, and to let go of the obligation to be someone's else's version of who we should be. Stand tall, shine bright, free.


Harriette came into my life and at the exact point in my life when I needed it. I needed to focus on myself, my passion and connect with what is most important. Two days with Harriette and these other amazing, successful, and strong women was beyond inspiring.


Harriette gets to the heart of what's holding us back from being our best selves and offers strategies to make real and lasting change. She is the vanguard of a new generation of thought and action leaders.
