Motivational Speaking Overview

Donna Palm


If you are looking for someone who’s one of a kind, you’ve found her. Donna’s life experiences are definitely unlike any others. She went from being homeless to driving a Maserati, owning two RE/MAX franchises, several corporations and real estate investments. 

For many years Donna worked as an industrial union electrician in oil refineries, chemical plants, nuclear plants and steel mills. She was only the third woman in her union long before the days of sexual harassment laws. Other women considered her a pioneer. 

Many years ago, after getting divorced, she moved with her two young children across the country to follow her dream of raising her family in paradise. Donna completely changed careers becoming a real estate broker, investor and RE/MAX owner, all while knowing absolutely no one in Florida when she arrived. Since many people constantly asked her, “How did you do it? How do you continually redesign your life at will?” Donna finally wrote it down and published the first edition of “Dream Bigger, Live Better”.

Now in its second expanded edition, Donna’s book has inspired others all over the world. Donna has the unique ability to redesign her life over and over again. She now teaches others how to actually design and achieve the life they dream of.

One of Donna’s favorite things to do is to take something that is rundown and then rehab it into something beautiful. This includes real estate as well as lives. Anything is possible; if Donna can do it, you can too. As you can see, Donna has a unique life experience that she draws from in order to speak on many diverse subjects, to many diverse audiences. 

When Donna speaks, it is from the heart, from life experience, business experience and touches the audience in a unique way. She is engaging, inspiring and feels like a friend. Donna truly cares.

She tells it like it is. She is not formal, pretentious or stuffy.dsc_9083
