Show Notes

Donnalynn Riley is a podcast host, and a Joy Coach who has ridden the roller coaster of life, and she has been sober since 1995.  In sobriety, she met a lot of people who have been in dire straits, years and sometimes decades of degrading situations. One day when she was still drinking, she saw a woman twice her age working her way through a gallon box of wine and that's when she knew she would never be an old drunk - she could easily imagine jumping off a 10-story building, but not that. It was a moment that scared her right into getting help to get sober.

Donnalynn knows how to choose joy consistently. From a career in the Broadway Stage in NYC to CEO of a multimillion-dollar corporation, the highs have been significant, and the walk through the valley equally amplified right down to the recent loss of her husband and house all at once. Understanding how to live in this world joyously, has been the guiding light for Donnalynn, resulting in finding beauty in every day.
