Donna Messer, a businesswoman, powerful speaker, accomplished writer and a very dear friend.   As my mentor Donna taught me so much, especially the power and importance of motivation and inspiration. She will forever be in my heart and thoughts and her spirit will continue to guide me.

Donna inspired and helped thousands of people. As evident from the hundreds of comments pouring in on Donna’s Facebook.  She is loved and respected by many.

Her creative mind never stopped – we spent countless hours in her office and on the phone brainstorming and working on a variety of ventures.  I was honoured Donna valued my insight and opinion.   I am blessed to have known and learned from such an exceptional women and I know in my heart she will continue to inspire me along with thousands of others.  Her legacy lives on!

Please allow me to share this message from Donna’s family.

Donna Messer April 3, 1942- April 3, 2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of Donna Messer at 7:15 this morning.

She fought a valiant and dignified battle with cancer, which cannot come as a surprise to anyone who knew her. Donna was always strong willed, focused and dignified. She passed away peacefully with family by her side, support and love all around.

We thank the nursing staff of the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital for their wonderful care. You all truly made a very difficult time more bearable.

There are certain points in time when the stars mysteriously align. Today was one of those days. On Friday, April 3rd, Donna was born, and also passed. Both dates were a Good Friday, and fell within Passover. Both dates also mark the headnote and footnote in the story of an amazing soul.

Those of us who were touched by, and had the opportunity to talk to Donna are truly fortunate. We rejoice her presence on earth and remember our time with her well. It is presumed that she is currently in charge of networking in heaven.

Donna was a mother, grandmother, businesswoman, public speaker, accomplished writer, friend and mentor. She was a positive and welcomed impact on her community and a highly sought after source of knowledge and support.

Our mom influenced a great many people’s lives and has not only been a supporter but also a champion for countless causes, charities, small businesses and individuals. It her spirit, there is a Legacy Foundation in the works. It will be established as soon as possible in her name.

For those of you in Donna’s network, we will be in touch with details regarding an upcoming celebration of her life.

With our deepest love,

Richard, Debbie, Lauren. Madison, Keegan and family

Yesterday I had the pleasure of participating in the Day with Donna at Stone Edge Estate a Bed & Breakfast on the Edge of the Niagara Escarpment. It is owned by Doug Rapien and is a beautiful place surrounded by fantastic scenery  – http://www.stoneedgeestate.ca/

We gathered in a luxurious meeting room, a Dentist, Engineers, RN/Health Nutritionist, Artist, Financial Planner and of course me – a Talent Acquisition Specialist. We were strangers brought together by Donna to learn how to take our business to the next level, no matter how small or large. It was an exciting journey and one that was filled with inspiration, laughter and a large amount of learning. By the end of the day, as typical with all of Donna’s events, the strangers became a team collaborating on how best to help each other. We developed measureable goals and over the next 60 days Donna will monitor each and every one of us to insure we are following through. In addition, the team will stay connected offering support as we strive to achieve our business goals.

Donna broadcasted the event on BlogTalkRadio – I invite you to listen to the broadcast and meet the wonderful group of people I had the pleasure of spending the day with:
