Seven years later, she became a Certified Professional Coach, and melded her business and coaching skills to follow her true passion - helping entrepreneurs create their dream business and their dream life. Donna and Mike are both on a mission to save small businesses from extinction, and they co-founded Provendus Group to spread the business growth methods in The Pumpkin Plan to as many businesses as possible.
