Award Winning Author

Donna P Dahl

Donna P. Dahl, author and master empowerment coach, has written five self-empowerment books in support of self-reflection and entrepreneurship. Her latest book, Empowering the Leader Within you: The 7 Essential to Becoming a Standout Entrepreneur, was released in early 2020 and is being touted as a must read if you are drawing your map for your life’s journey.

Donna was recently named by Top 100 Magazine as one of Canada’s top professionals. Her work has been recognized across a number of platforms including her winning of the Woman of Inspiration Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2016. She is also a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and the 100th Anniversary International Women’s Day Award for Outstanding Service to business.

As a motivational speaker, an adept trainer for pulling together board and corporate teams and a highly valued developmental editor, Donna brings a wealth of talent and skill to her audiences.

Her book, Lessons I learned from the Tortoise, has received over 20 reviews on Amazon. The most frequent comment about the book is that you can’t read it just once. It is well-positioned to become a timeless treasure just as the centuries-old Aesop’s fable about the race between the Tortoise and the Hare is still a topic for discussion to this day.

Reflections on speed, tenacity and competition in life and business

“A big part of what builds trust is consistency.”
“Consistency is like the concrete footings buried deep in the ground to support a skyscraper. Consistency is like the thousands of feet of rebar used to build resiliency into a 30-story building in an earthquake zone. Consistency is the glue that helps people make that connection between you and what you represent. Consistency is the bond that makes all the difference.”

Simply Brilliant

Your idea to weave such an endearing story based on our historic Canada, with a list of the 7 essential strategies for standing out as a leader is simply brilliant, entertaining and educational. It reads like a sensible, logical and true path to not only help the reader understand the why of all those essentials strategies and how they work but to know and analyze your very own personal why.

Its need is grand:
-a “must-read“ for students at the high school level and business courses in universities.
– a “have to“ prior to getting on Dragon’s Den
– a “go-to“ book on coffee tables
– a motivational tool for creating a Master Class.

This manuscript leaves you with a vision and a clear list of how to have a plan and see it through. So precisely written and with a clear message: understanding your why in any endeavour and making it happen!
Thank you for all those thought-provoking questions. They stay long after the book has been laid and are bigger than life!
