hi, My Name is Donna Schmid.

I am a Professional Speaker, Trainer and Coach—

I’m strong willed, independent, a bit outspoken, and I tell it like it is. I love and give with all my heart and I will be the first to admit – “I’m work in progress!”

I am a daughter, wife, mother, friend, career woman, and more importantly a spiritual being having a human experience. I am just like you – I breathe the same air, I laugh hard, I love deeply, I bleed when hurt and I heal only with authentic compassion. What makes me different is how I choose to express my uniqueness.

I recognized early in my life that my personal uniqueness was in the power of my words. I was able to trace both my successes and failures with how well I could express myself in all of my relationships.

My life became a “daily practice” of learning how to say the right thing in the right way and at the right time so that I could speak and connect without being misunderstood.

This life-long quest has evolved into a passion assisting women, just like yourself, in the discovery of your own personal uniqueness so that you can live your purpose and do it fearlessly.

I create the space, you create the desire and together we can connect with The Wise Woman within.
