Always an entrepreneur at heart, I learned to take action on my instincts…
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, U.S.A., of Italian decent in an Italian neighborhood. I’m spunky! You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can’t take the Brooklyn out of the girl!
Some say “slow down Donna!” But that old New York lifestyle is ingrained in me.
I live with my husband, David Merrill for the past 21 years. He is not only my husband, but my best friend and business partner. We have 3 dogs who we refer to as our furbabies.
We moved from NYC to Ithaca NY where life is great. Small town, great restaurants and plenty of nature.
Social Networking The Old Way…
As a Psychic for nearly 30 years, I developed a storefront business with a small budget, and a great idea. I posted in my storefront “7 minute quickies” $10. Why? I knew everyone had ten bucks in their pocket and the word quickie got their attention.
I did this to build a clientele. To my surprise, it worked faster than I could handle. I still run that business called Mind Over Matter of NY Inc. Now I do it by phone or Skype.
Of course, there are no more quickies, but serious repeat clients. The best part of this business is that I NEVER advertised. It started back in the old days, so I wrote articles, appeared as a guest on radio stations, and also had my own radio show in Westchester NY for a year.
Social Networking The New Way…
Now I am doing the same thing with Social Media and Attraction Marketing on the internet.
My old “7 minute quickie” has become Attraction Marketing.
My endless radio spots and shows became my blog.
My word of mouth is now handled on Social Media sites.
I’m the gal who can show you many ways how to overcome obstacles in your business. It isn’t easy running your own business, being the CEO of You Inc., but with the right systems in place you CAN do it.
I am driven by a passion to help people grow and develop their skills, complete their goals and live their dreams.
This is the passion that brought me to the online world of Social Media.
Through Facebook, Twitter and the myriad of other social platforms, I have been able to assist a larger number of people benefit from the personal growth methods I’ve developed. It is such a cool thing that I can help so many people (that I’ve never even met in person!) find their own success and fulfillment.
Today… it’s ALL about Social Media…
I am especially passionate about assisting “Newbies” who are struggling to develop their own online business.
The first thing I teach them is to leverage the immense power and viral qualities of Social Media. This has been proven to be the most effective method to deliver tangible services and products to the vast online marketplace.
