If you ask people who know me best, I think they’d tell you that I’ve always had the heart of an entrepreneur. I’ve never been a person who did something to follow the crowd. Usually it’s been the opposite — and being an entrepreneur means that you have to follow your gut when everyone else thinks you’re a little bit crazy.
But I’m not really crazy, of course. I’d prefer to say that I saw an opportunity to open a new business to better serve the needs of customers. After two decades in the workforce, one as a journalist and another as a marketer, I both refined and developed my natural drive to do things differently, to ask the right questions and to solve problems.
The result is Donnelly Creative, a consultancy that helps companies develop products and services that align more closely with the needs of their best customers.

My wife says she’s never seen me so happy since I decided to follow my passion and become an entrepreneur. Honestly, I think that when you wake up every day ready to be fully yourself in service of others, then you can’t go far wrong, whether in business or in life.
