It’s a great way to learn, connect, and get inspired by the entrepreneurs and business owners that have already started their journey. We hope you enjoy the series!
Donella is the Director of TEAM International, Inc., and spends her time sharing her experiences with health professionals, business owners, direct sales teams, non-profit organizations, and individuals both across the country and overseas.
Question 1: Where did you grow up and what was it like living there?
I was born and raised in England and I loved it! From the school uniforms to the fish and chips, it’s everything you have ever imagined and more.
Question 2:What was your favorite school subject or activity in your teen years?
French was my favourite subject back in England. We began learning a foreign language at a very young age.
Question 3: What were you like as a teenager?
Bloody awful! It’s true, ask my Mum!
Question 4: What was your first job and what did you do there?
I volunteered in England for an organization called Help the Aged. I would walk old ladies to the shops and help them with their food shopping and make sure they didn’t leave their handbags behind.
Question 5: What was your worst job and why?
I don’t think I’ve had a “worst job”. They have all been learning experiences and stepping stones to the person I am today.
Question 6: What life event made you decide to start your own business?
Family is very important to me as I’m sure it is for most people. The problem is, when you work for someone else, your family isn’t important to them. The freedom to have a life and an income has always been appealing to me.
Question 7: Tell us what your business is, what it does, etc.?
I am the Founder of TEAM International, Inc. An international coaching and keynote speaking company. As a Business Coach I encourage others to be successful and guide them in their business. My keynote speeches range from motivational, educational, medical, to corporate.
Question 8: Why do you love your brand?
Watching businesses thrive and employees enjoying going to work is incredible. We spend more time with our work teams than we often do with our own families. Being able to enjoy that environment, experience the feeling of satisfaction, accomplishment, all whilst knowing you are making a difference is something we all only dream of. If I can help businesses and their employees experience this, then that is a privilege I am honoured to be a part of.
Question 9. What song or band are you obsessed with right now?
I love Halsey, Contemporary Christian music, Rock and Roll, but I listen to everything, except country ..LOL!
Question 10: What show are you binge watching?
Just finished Broadchurch… FANTASTIC!
Question 11: Pizza or Tacos?
Question 12: Saturday or Sunday?
Question 13: Summer or winter?
Summer. Take me to the beach!
Question 14: netflix or hulu?
Netflix, but have both. Must admit, Netflix is making some great films!
