Listen to this Podcast episode

Donna Y. Ferris lives in West Chester, Pennsylvania and Duck, North Carolina with her husband and dogs – and spends as much time as possible with her two Musketeers in Pittsburgh (the home of her beloved Steelers). In addition to continuing to work in Corporate America, Donna teaches yoga, life coaches, leads retreats, and writes about overcoming adversity, grief, success, and sobriety (for publications including Elephant Journal and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) as side hustles. She just published her first book, “We’ve Got to Stop Meeting Like This – A Memoir of Missed Connections.”

I ask Donna about the challenges she has faced and what is one thing you did to get through them?

How have your experiences changed your life?

What made you decide to get sober?

How did getting sober reduce your anxiety?

What approach did you use to get sober?

How did you hold onto a job when you were going through your difficulties?

What do you regret most?

What is the most important thing listeners can do to improve their ability to navigate change?

What is your advice to someone who wants to write or create their way out of difficult times?

What is your view of success today in a post-COVID world??

What is the most important parenting advice you can give to parents navigating change?
