Donna is 6’5” tall and a woman who both literally and figuratively stands out. Her height gave her the confidence to succeed in the male-dominated world of real estate, and her intuitive gifts enabled her to become a master player and teacher of poker.

Poker helped her to develop the belief that one’s life is created by one’s perceptions, a mindset perspective that enabled her to recover her speaking ability three days after having a massive stroke.

A few weeks later, when she was waiting to have a heart procedure, staff members, having heard that she was a master poker coach, asked her about it. When she explained her mindset principles and exercises, she influenced not only more than a dozen people but also the doctor who had performed her procedure.

She has published these principles and exercises in MindShift On Demand: QUICK Life-Changing Tools, her second published book. Donna, who recognizes that exposure to the Internet and related technology has created a need for information presented in a simple way, plans to create several smaller books on this subject and card decks.

“Keep it simple” and “Keep on repurposing it” are her guiding principles in writing and publishing. These principles can serve any authors who want to get the maximum value from their work.
