After nearly a year of writing as Dan Manifest…
I’ve decided to start writing under my real name:
Daniel Paul Donovan.
For one, I don’t even like the name “Dan.”
But there’s actually far more to it than that.
The real reason I’m changing back to my real name is that I’m growing sick of not presenting my authentic self.
There’s no reason for me to hide.
There’s no reason for me to act like someone I’m not.
Dan Manifest will always hold a place in my heart…
But Daniel Paul Donovan is who I really am…
And it’s high time I take ownership of that.
Consider this a farewell from who I was…
And a greeting from who I AM.
I’m excited to ‘lean in’ to my own authenticity.
I hope you find the courage to do the same.
And when you’re ready
