Online Success Cast #6: Danielle Miller

I recently had the opportunity to meet Danielle Miller the Toolbox Teacher at Ken McArthur's IMPACT event.  We sat in the same room for 2 days before we said much of anything to each other. But, once we got started — we realized we would be friends for life and, also that we really needed to talk about business and brainstorm on a regular basis.  (We're thinking beach house in September, so stay tuned for the chance to join us.) 🙂

You know.. she's one of THOSE people. The kind who thinks and says what's on her mind. (The kind that I like.)

Danielle's bio – so you understand WHY I had her on the show beyond “I like her”:

I have been a special education teacher for over 10 years, working with students of varying ages (from preschoolers to adults) and disabilities, including those on the autistic spectrum.  Teaching in this field has taught me many, many things: perseverance, patience, the amazing power of the human spirit, a never-give-up attitude, the knowledge that no matter what the disability, expectations should be high and never be compromised…the list goes on and on.

Do you need help focusing?  Do you know your “why”, but are not sure of how to get there?  Do you set goals, but have difficulty with prioritizing and completing the goals you set?  If you feel you are destined for bigger and better things and want someone to help you gain focus, clarity and a plan for achieving your goals, we need to talk!

I encourage you to follow Danielle on Twitter and keep an eye here for more news about her soon. (We have plans.)

    WOW! Amazing success cast once again. I really enjoy these, Nicole.

    Today I heard something that I realized a while ago but it’s a great reminder all of the time and it’s to be in tune with the process.

    I also totally agree with surrounding yourself with positive people. I have done that over the years and it makes a big difference. I really can’t stand to be around negativity. Sure we all have issues in life but the more positive you are the better life will be. Don’t focus on the negative!

    Great show ladies!

    Glad you enjoyed it Ladies:-)
    You’re right Angie, these are NOT complicated or new thoughts, but we definitely need to be reminded (frequently)on success principles and to make sure we are staying on track. Funny how we know what we don’t want, but when we keep thinking those thoughts, that’s what we keep getting! Thanks Nicole for having me, love sharing with peeps!
