YOU HAVE TO DO THE UNNECESSARY WORK, TO GET THE NECESSARY OUTCOME
DONOVAN IS PASSIONATE ABOUT SPEAKING BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS HOW POWERFUL THE MINDSET IS
Donovan knows first hand what it feels like to fail and not feel good enough or seen as an individual. Through a series of leaning on mentors and getting the help he needed he was able to break that mindset and overcome what he thought was impossible in just 5 short years.
He now wants people to know that their condition is not their conclusion and that by following a simple set of strategies that he used to overcome his struggles, that anyone can achieve their wildest dreams.
