Tell us about yourself?
My name is Donna Ware and I live in Gladstone Queensland. I am 50 years old and I have 4 grandchildren who I adore. I am so passionate about helping people get better results in their life so they can live a life that makes them feel happier and more fulfilled. I have spent most of my life battling depression, anxiety, and eating disorders and a few years ago I discovered a better way to live so that I could move from barely surviving into a thriving and creating abundance and success in all areas of my life. Talking about mental illness when I was growing up was a taboo subject and so I suffered in silence as many other people do. I didn’t feel seen and heard in my family so I created the “Good Girl” persona and became a people pleaser trying to get love and acceptance from the people in my life. I have educated myself, trained myself, and had the courage to step out and help myself, change family belief systems that totally held me back and kept me stuck in the victim. I now help my clients, working with women and men on their personal journeys and their relationships. I have connected to my purpose and I feel very grateful and I now live in flow allowing the Universe to gift me all the love and support I need to help those who walk on my path.
What is your business or job?
I am a relationship expert, trained as a counselor and mindset coach using some teachings by Bob Proctor and some other world mentors. I bring my expertise and life experience forward to help my clients gain more clarity, power, and freedom so they can make better decisions. I help my clients live from a place of empowerment instead of living by default. I have created 3 ways that my clients can enrol to work with me.
1. Participating in my “Conscious Couples Blueprint” Program. This is an 8 x 1-hour session coaching program for couples to improve their relationship. It also improves the relationship they have with themselves.
2. Participating in my “Crowned in Confidence” Program for individuals. This is a 5 X 1-hour coaching program to improve their relationship with themselves. This has also been run as a workshop for Women.
3. Participating in my “Hour of Power” Program for couples, individuals, or groups. This is a 1 X 1-hour session learning ONE powerful tool that I use every day to get successful results. An initial 1-hour consultation is necessary before starting my programs.
How long have you been in business or your career?
I qualified as a counselor in 2010 and in that time, I have worked with hundreds of clients as well as I have had some time off to work on my own personal development and healing. I believe as a therapist I need to be at my best to really help my clients in a powerful way. And all of the teachings I deliver I put into practice myself. I don’t expect my clients to do things I wouldn’t do or I haven’t proven to work.
What do you love the most about your current job?
I can answer this question in one word…. FREEDOM
I love the flexibility I get to experience running my own business and I love that I get to be creative. Creativity for me is a big deal. If I don’t create, I disintegrate. Having my own business allows me to stretch myself, have control to make my own decisions, and be more in control of my own destiny. It’s not for the faint-hearted it certainly has its challenges, however, I love the rewards.
Who has been your greatest influence in business or your job and in your personal life and why?
I’d have to say, my dad. My father is a very successful businessman and I have watched him my whole life achieve the impossible. At first, my business journey started with me feeling like I needed to prove to my dad that I could be successful and this caused me a lot of overwhelm and burn out however now I have embraced my own capabilities and live my life from a place of impact and who I can help and support to live better. Another person who has been a big influencer is Bob Proctor. He is a world mastermind and I have personally completed his coaching program and my mindset has totally changed how I live and run my business.
What would you say is your greatest professional accomplishment to date?
Designing and implementing my “Conscious Couples Blueprint”. I have personally witnessed so much change and transformation in people and that makes me happy. From my program, I have developed other programs to help individuals so I really feel like I am able to support anyone who is committed to change. There really is something for everyone in my business.
What do you do to inspire other women?
I am an inspirational speaker and I often give talks at women’s events. I like to inspire other women by sharing parts of my own healing journey and then giving them a roadmap to help on their own. I have also been holding “Crowned in Confidence” workshops for women to participate supporting them to understand the female perspective, how to live from their own power and develop more confidence. The female brain is very different from the male brain and I feel I have a great understanding of these differences and I share my perspective about it with women so they too can gain that awareness.
What inspirational qualities do you possess?
I see myself as the Queen of Confidence and I share that everywhere I go. My heart is totally open to supporting others to develop their courage so they can step forward in their own lives. I am persistent, I have a NEVER give up attitude, I take risks and I totally back myself. I have a very strong will, I have had this since I was a little girl. I was walking at 9 months old and I think I already knew I had a mission. I encourage people to follow their desires.
What’s your advice for other women that may want to do what you do?
I say GO FOR IT!!! It will have challenges and sometimes roadblocks however it will grow you into the best version of yourself. My advice is to dream and focus on that with a feeling that you already have what you want and then the Universe can deliver it to you.
What’s the best advice you have received in business that you wish to pass on to Nikki’s blog. ?
To focus more on aligning your energy over strategies in your business. I spend more effort on raising my vibration than I do on the practical aspects of running my business. And I encourage you to delegate out the things you are not good at and get good support from the right people.
What do you do for fun/relaxation?
Reading, writing, meditating, walking, and sex. Having orgasms connects us to the divine. This is so
overlooked by women.
What’s the best way for our women here to connect with you?
