Erin Donley Talks about The Importance of Communication

program date: 
Wed, 04/02/2014
I had a very interesting and helpful conversation with Erin Donley, a communication specialist about the importance of conscious communication.
Erin Donley is a connection queen in Portland, Oregon. She's known for helping businesses and individuals gain respect, rapport and results with their words.

Erin was a media sales executive for several years, until she left seeking role models who could show her when (and how) to swallow her pride or express her views -- carefully and professionally.

This led her to the spiritual hub of the Pacific NW, New Renaissance Bookshop, were she created a hugely successful email column designed to showcase the store's books and products. This became a gigantic money maker and put deserving healers and authors on the map.

After witnessing the struggles of those who live "consciously," Erin started a business called Marketing Your Truth. In this venture, she strengthened the sales and authenticity of hundreds of thought leaders.

This led her to create a TV show called, Reveal What's Real, where her goal was to remind the world of the GOOD that happens when we can speak about the things in life that are hidden, uncomfortable and difficult.

Today, Erin is professional speaker and business communication trainer. Companies hire her to boost the skills and confidence of each person in the workplace, and to help them realize how much their words matter... and how important it is to choose them wisely.
