Wickedly Smart Women

Feb 9, 2022

The day Donna Tashjian was let go from her job at a nonprofit was the best worst day of her life. Yes, she felt unwanted and uncertain. But it also gave her the opportunity to unearth her gifts and decide what she really wanted to do with her life.

So, how do you turn your baggage into luggage? How do you find the good in a bad situation and leverage the experience to get where you really want to go?

Donna is the Founder of Vibrant Living International, a nonprofit organization that empowers women to live to their fullest potential. As a life mastery coach, ordained minister, podcaster and author, Donna is dedicated to helping people navigate challenging transitions, develop their spiritual intelligence and live the life of their dreams.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Donna joins Anjel to share the experience of losing her job and explain what steps she took to uncover her purpose and build a successful coaching practice. She describes how she changed her thinking around money and learned to see it as a reflection of her impact in the world.
