Today, Dawn Brolin, CPA, CFE and author of The Designated Motivator: Unlock Your Superpower to Change Your Life, The World & Everyone In It launched a global #MotivationMovement to support people who are suffering from the mental health impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The pandemic has had a devastating effect on people around the globe physically, financially and mentally,” said Brolin. “I have always tried to help others see that they can make their way through tough situations and find a more positive mindset—I call it my superpower. I know that many other people have the desire and ability to do this, too, that’s why I started a #MotivationMovement on social media and through my work as a speaker and author.”
Brolin, who is a CPA and a Certified Fraud Examiner, wrote The Designated Motivator after what she refers to as a “pivotal experience” as an assistant coach for a college softball team which made it to the national championship in 2019. “I felt the desire in my soul and the fire in my belly to do what I could to make the team members realize how gifted they are and to help them see and seize the possibility they had within them,” said Brolin.
“The season after they won the championship, the pandemic postponed their ability to come back and play. As I reflected on the difficulty that I helped many of the players overcome to achieve their best, and then as I helped them and other people in my life deal mentally with the pandemic, I realized that I needed to take action to do more and help more people. My hope is that through the book and the social media #MotivationMovement, we can all work together to ease the mental health crisis that is affecting not only the United States, but may areas of the world.”
Brolin defines herself as a Designated Motivator, or DM, for short—an individual who has the passion and ability to give others the greatest gift of all: the realization and mobilization of their true potential. She knows there are millions of other people who share these qualities and she wants to inspire them into action with the global #MotivationMovement. Those who wish to participate can share uplifting messages, stories and words of hope for others using this hashtag. On Brolin’s website
“I always knew I had the power to lift others up and help them to step into their greatest potential, but I never really put a name to what it meant,” Brolin shared. “It was in 2019 when I was coaching The Lady Warriors Team at Eastern Connecticut State University that I really began to see the power of the DM concept to make the lives of other people better and the world a more positive and productive place. That’s what motivated me to share the specific mindset and skillset I use so that others can do the same.”

The book shares the transformative impact that individuals can have on other people individually and in families, businesses, schools, sports and non-profit organizations, healthcare facilities and other areas which are meaningful to them.
“I believe there are many other people who are Designated Motivators, although they may not really know how to use their superpower for the highest good,” said Brolin, “I decided to write a book that detailed the responsibilities, mindset and skill set of a Designated Motivator so that as many people as possible can use the information to help change their lives, make the world better and support the people they know in different areas of their life.”
