"In this world, there are many products and services whose performance is less than all the hype. “We will do this for you!” “Our product will solve all your problems!” They don’t. That’s why when you run across a service that really delivers quality and value, you notice it. Donna Spina is such a service. I am most impressed with her knowledge of what it takes to succeed, not only in business but in life. I have a network of quite a few advisors. However, the quality and competency of her coaching has often led me to ask myself – “do I really need anyone else but her?” I am impressed by her confidence. She believes that she truly is giving you the coaching you need for success and that gives you confidence to follow it. She does what she does with calmness and quiet assurance. While I hope she is never in a burning building, you sense she would be the calm one helping all the panicked people get safely outside while at the same time presenting herself as if she was out for a quiet stroll in the park. Yes, I am impressed with Donna Spina. I highly recommend her for your business or even if you believe you need personal coaching.”Charles W, website developer and social media guru, Philadelphia, PA
“A lot of coaches I considered came to coaching after working in social work or therapeutic fields. Donna is different. She's been a business owner and leader. She's coaching you from actually having been in the driver's seat. This means her assessment of your situation and her recommendations come from a wisdom that can only be gained through experience. Donna speaks the language of the small business owner.
I had a big project that had no deadline, but was important to the future of my company. I had been working on it for over a year. Donna sensed the importance of this project and bumped it to the top of the priority list, even though it didn't seem "urgent." We laid out a game plan. Within a month of working with Donna, I completed the project. That alone was worth her fee.
I could say that my productivity has increased greatly after working with Donna, and it has, but that’s not the full story. Yes my productivity has increased, but the what has changed as well. I'm spending less time putting out fires and more time on the good work - work that will help my company grow and be profitable not just for next month but for years to come.”Deirdre F., singer/songwriter/teacher, Philadelphia, PA
Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation that I feel for Donna Spina and for all that she has done for me in such a short period of time. I knew from our initial phone conversation that she was the one for me and that my search for a business coach was complete. I could hear the compassion, caring and dedication in her voice. In addition, I could hear confidence and gentle reassurance that she could guide me towards the life that I had always been seeking for myself. Even after only a couple of months working together, I could see massive changes in not only the way that I viewed the world, but – even perhaps more importantly – with how I viewed myself. Donna is selfless, so giving of herself and truly wants to cause breakthroughs for her clients so that they can soar! Donna is always there with encouraging words and eagerly celebrates your WINS with you. For the first time in my life, I can really see the bigger picture. I feel such excitement and eagerness for the future and the many possibilities that it brings. I know that whatever the future holds, I will be ready to welcome it with open arms thanks to Donna and her excellent coaching.Krista, Administrator & new Small Business Owner, Pennsylvania

She is highly recommended and her credentials speak for themselves. I give her full credit for continued success!Jim Yeingst, Director of Procurement and Purchasing, Pennsylvania
Donna is the master of multi task with precision focus. When I was with Keller Williams Realty, she managed 180 agents, the Owners and Broker, was responsible for the company accounting and the operations of a very busy office and did it all with such grace and professionalism. Donna is an excellent mentor to people new to the business and to those that need coaching. Her personal and business experiences have prepared her to be an excellent business coach.LuAnn McHugh, Associate Broker, Coldwell Banker Preferred, Pennsylvania
Donna is an exceptionally dedicated and passionate person. She has the interesting combination of administrative/analytic skill combined with a warm and engaging people skill.
As the CFO of Keller Williams Real Estate, Donna had a tremendous amount of responsibility presiding over the Profit & Loss and business operations for an office of about 200 agents. She managed this responsibility keenly and proficiently; all the while garnering the team’s respect and admiration for her genuine interest and concern for the people around her. Donna is one in a million.Kevin A. Busza, Re-order Technology Solutions Provider for A/V, Presentation and IT Networking (Crestron, AMX, Cisco, Polycom), Pennsylvania
