Donna Sparaco Meador Episode #136

donna sparaco meador

Donna Sparaco Meador, Certified Women’s Empowerment Coach, specializing in women dating “again,” Obsessed with LegalShield Advocate, Speaker and Best Selling Author. 

After being out of the job market for 10 years she ended up in the Corporate World of construction and brought in over $7M in bids for her firm. Then, in 2008, along with her new husband, she founded a commercial furniture installation company.
True, it wasn’t the best time to start a business, but they knuckled down and successfully generated a multi 6-figure business that stretched from the West to the East Coast until he passed away in 2016.
After the loss of Donna’s Husband, she reinvented herself and her message of healing and self-care via her vlog: “Daily Dose A Donna” took the media by storm. Her unique message of being intentional and readjusting to life after loss, offers strategic, yet simple and effective tools providing inspiration, clarity and purpose for those looking to flourish.
Donna is a dynamic and energetic leader who turned her Girl Scout philosophy into her mission to step up, step out, and assist others both business and personally, to do the same. Her encounters in the dating world paralleled her experiences of interviewing for a job.
She realized that in business and in personal endeavors, the best way to get ahead was to stay real, interested, and to stay out of the outcome. 
Bottom line: you can’t fake giving.
Today, Donna Sparaco Meador is remarried and discovered once again how life has a way of propelling you forward if you allow it. She has discovered that mainly women yearn for her crystal clear advice on how to look for love in all the right places. Sometimes it’s just a small tweak to help someone look at the world differently.
When they tell her that there are no good men out there, she reminds them, they only need one. Her own love-story is proof of that as she walked down the aisle at fifty years old and again at sixty. 
I’ve dropped the cost of the kindle version to under $3 so anyone who wants to learn a few secrets can do so simply and easily!  https://www.amazon.com/author/donnasparacomeador

Dr Kathryn Owler Episode #134

Kathryn Owler

Dr Kathryn Owler is an academic and researcher, from my research when it comes to work, practical strategies for finding more joy and purpose at work can happen


Are you feeling unhappy, bored or frustrated at work? If so, I’ve been there too! Around 6 years ago I landed my dream job! I loved it for at least a year, when I started to get a little bored at times. Then, over the next few years (& several departmental restructures & lots of changes) I found myself literally miserable.

I was devastated to find that my dream job had turned into a nightmare and I didn’t have a clue how to make things better. Eventually I left the role, but always wondered if I could have done something differently.

As an academic and researcher by trade,  in order to make sense of the devastating experience of leaving my job, I therefore eventually channeled my despair and disappointment into academic research distilling the secrets of remarkable workers who’ve had fun at any job they’ve ever had.

I’ve learned from this research that we all have more control than we think when it comes to work happiness – including practical strategies for finding more joy and purpose at work.

My research was published in a top journal and this really got me thinking about how I could use it to assist others…Dr Kathryn Owler,  I learned from her research that we all have more control than we think when it comes to work happiness
As a result, I have recently started a coaching business to help others who are unhappy at work – drawing on both my research and my experience. My mission (and now calling in life!) is to provide people bored, frustrated or unhappy in their work with easy-to-follow (empirically proven) steps that they can action immediately to achieve greater joy and purpose at work. Please get in touch if you’d like to chat about how I can help you.
