Hello I’m Lou Ann Donovan. Welcome to my blog about how to Live Young! The twists and turns of my life have led me to where I am today. I’m passionate about healthy living, community and social media. Keep reading to learn more about what wakes me up in the morning!
Over the years I’ve done personal research on all facets of healthy eating and nutritional supplementation to reach optimal health and longevity. I conquered both migraine headaches and low blood sugar. It prompted me to question what else is possible with nutrition. Because of my love for finding answers about staying healthy, I’m officially known as a “nutrition geek”. Today, I am a certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach. I founded my coaching practice Live Young Now to serve the Kansas City metropolitan area and literally anyone else via phone, Skype or Google Hangout. My blog writings focus on actionable information about anti-aging, physical activity, eating healthy, healing your body naturally and learning how to live young every day!
My mother’s passion for philanthropy inspired me to follow her path. Since 2001, I have focused an increasing amount of effort in the non-profit field. This culminated in accepting a role within one my parent’s favorite organizations that I still enjoy today. Here are the organizations I support including their mission statement:
Cross-Lines Community Outreach, Inc. – Cross-Lines mission is to provide people affected by poverty with basic services and opportunities that encourage self-confidence and self-sufficiency.
Harvesters – Harvesters’ mission is to feed hungry people today and work to end hunger tomorrow.
The Humane Society of the United States – The Humane Society is the nation’s largest and most effective animal protection organization, serving for more than 50 years. They believe in a truly humane society, and work to reduce suffering and create meaningful social change for animals.
The Salvation Army – Kansas / Western Missouri Division – The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
I love everything social! Love to network, meet new people, build relationships and grab coffee to share life stories. I’ve gained a following for networking and social media tips. I am always open to share strategies and tips! For example my top sites are Facebook and Pinterest. The other sites are good but the bulk of my time is spent there. Testing out ideas from other industries has been a tremendous benefit. I have found great results in sharing mastermind tips with other local businesses.
