Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
My name is Evonna McDonald, I am a Podcast host, Speaker, and Holistic Success Strategist for women. As a holistic success strategist, I help women transform their mind, body and spirit to achieve success in their businesses and in life. I help women get clear on who they are and empower them to live an authentic, purpose filled life.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
I am truly passionate about helping people live successful and purpose filled lives. In my personal and professional experience I’ve encountered so many women who suffer from a lack of self-love, confidence, and purpose in their lives. I too was once in a dark place where I didn’t know who I was, what I wanted or why I was here. I suffered deeply and had to overcome my own insecurities, struggle, and hardships. I felt lost, miserable, angry and confused and as a result I’ve made tons of poor decisions and self-sabotaged my way into some pretty dark places. Through God’s grace, healing, and inner work, I was able to recognize negative patterns, self-destructing habits, and my own limiting beliefs that have held me captive. I am inspired by my own journey of personal development and transformation and I aspire to help other women tap into their self-worth to achieve self-empowerment.
What key advice would you share with readers that are interested in your industry?
I would advise women to first start with themselves. In order to be the best teach you must yourself learn the lessons. Mastery does not mean perfection.
What is next for you and your business this fall?
This Fall I plan on leaving my full time job and taking a leap of faith to trust in my skills, abilities and gifts. Having been through so much in 2018, I’m at a place where I can say I’ve learned a lot and I’m open and ready for this next chapter. I can’t wait to beef up on episodes of the podcast and produce some amazing content over the coming months. I have new gusts that I’m looking to feature and more conferences to attend. Relationships are so important to me. I’m looking forward to continue to network and expand my relationships and connections to grow Rise Queen to a top podcast for women across the globe.
