download donna's ebook

Have you ever walked into an elevator and standing there was someone you always wanted to meet and have time with, possibly the President or CEO of your company or someone famous, and were at a loss for words?

Did someone ever tell you something that caught you unawares where you were so taken aback you didn’t respond and then beat yourself up, replaying what just didn’t happen, all the way home?

Being able to speak up in real time to whatever unfolds is one of the most important skill sets you could ever learn. What if you could respond professionally, clearly and concisely so that your words counted?

Being able to speak up in real time to whatever unfolds is one of the most important skill sets you could ever learn. In this fast-paced world, we must make each second — never mind minute — count. Through the pages of this book, I will unpack situations, so you can use the rationales to address multiple contexts and how two minutes can change the status quo of a relationship, situation, or career.
