  1. From Despair to Empowerment: Dana's Journey Through Darkness to Light Matthew Harms 37:27

In the newest episode of PenPodcast we are joined by Dana Knowles, stay with us as we delve into the incredible life story of Dana, a resilient individual who transformed her life from the depths of despair to becoming a beacon of hope and empowerment. Born in a small town near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dana faced early challenges that led her down a destructive path of addiction, prostitution, and multiple failed marriages. Through harrowing experiences, including guns to her head and knives to her throat, Dana found herself at rock bottom.

Homeless and with nothing but the clothes on her back, Dana embarked on a journey of recovery, surrounded by supportive individuals who helped her rebuild her life. Over the past 26 years, she has emerged as a published author, successful inventor, motivational speaker, business owner, and the First Lady of Martinsburg, West Virginia.

Discover the transformative power of Dana’s book, “The P.A.U.S.E Method,” as she breaks down five simple steps to self-discovery and empowerment. Packed with personal experiences and valuable insights, Dana’s memoir provides actionable principles to help you become more comfortable with yourself, navigate intolerable situations, and embrace others for who they are.
