Donnie was born and raised in a low-income family in Washington, DC. His personal mission is to help as many people as he can using the gifts God gave him. After almost being robbed by a group of young men in Washington, DC, he developed an even deeper passion to help others maximize their potential by providing clarity and community through his company, The Donatello Group, LLC. To help others, he draws upon over 17 years of experience delivering products and providing coaching and consulting services in project management, financial management, marketing, information systems management, strategy and operations, organizational change management, and real estate acquisition and management. He helps individuals and businesses turn ideas into actions that save them time, make them more money, and improve the quality of their lives. He is formally educated in Finance and Information Systems; certified in Lean Six Sigma, Enterprise Risk Management, and Coaching; and the author of "What They Don't Teach You In School". Donnie is a very charismatic person with a deep respect for the power of diversity and unity. Each year, his goal is to help at least one million individuals and businesses experiencing financial and performance issues overcome challenges with saving money, managing expenses, and increasing income; achieve improved financial efficiency and effectiveness without sacrificing their quality of life or core values.
