    I'm A Mother Living On Purpose

    in Motivation

    This month on Purpose Living Radio, we are ALLLL about celebrating our mothers! The twist is, we are celebrating those who are living on PURPOSE! These mothers not only take the joy of being a mother seriously, but also are ready to conquer whatever to be their own boss. They aren't playing games! 


    This week we have the pleasure of speaking with Donna Hicks Izzard. Donna Hicks Izzard is best known as “Chief Identity Influencer” and is the creator of the innovative The 3W Life training workshops that teach individuals the importance of reclaiming their IDENTITY to be successful in their personal and professional lives. Individuals learn WHOSE they are, WHO they are and WHY they are here. The 3W Life workshops  empower individuals who are broken, stuck, stagnant and invite them to participate in their own rescue by regaining confidence and understanding their worth.


    Donna has authored two books, “Reclaiming Your Identity” and Walking in God’s Master Plan.  She is a featured contributor in the “I AM AMERICA” cookbook along with Chef Jeff and Tavis Smiley.


    Many call Donna a “dynamo” because she seems to be constantly in motion and can often be found anywhere people need inspiration and motivation. She, along with former “White House Ambassador” Susan D. Johnson Cook, as her business manager, developed a strategy to touch as many lives as possible and they did this by having Donna take advantage of all of her varied activities to spread her positive message of hope and inspiration to individuals in business and women in ministry.


    Those who turn to Donna Izzard quickly learn that their identity is their platform. When you know who you are and what you can do. THERE IS NOTHING THAT can stop you!
