Hi from Deb Donnell
Welcome to my online home. It's great to see you here.
As an author and a publisher, I have a varied interest in many areas, and do a lot of deep dive study. Consequently, I have a wide range of expertise. For instance, I am an NLP Master Practitioner (IANLP). NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a branch of self-actualisation psychology. Hence, my focus on creating personal development content, books, and training programmes.
Moreover, when using NLP to transform your life, you start to see the world differently. Firstly, you begin to control, manage and run your own brain. That means taking ownership for your thoughts, feelings, actions, and communications. In other words, you become the Hero of your life story.
As a result, many heroes start to look for something more than working in a job. They seek out opportunities for growth, and choose to go on entrepreneurship journeys. I know I did.
Deb Donnell: My Transformative Journey
My transformative journey started out in the late 1990s. Firstly, I began to study linguistics and writing at university. Then, I self-published my first book in 2003. Following on from that, I set myself a huge goal; to build a membership site where I could guide people through personal development and entrepreneurship journeys. At first, this terrified me. So I decided to chunk the process down into manageable bites.
Hence the reason why I have done deep dive study on a broad range of topics. Initially, they may seem to be eclectic. But once you understand the Hero's Journey, and get to know me better, it makes a lot of sense.
Essentially, from my numerous quests over the years, I have developed:
- The Writing Diamonds System™ for self-publishers; and
- The KESWiN™ Entrepreneurship System for building a passion-based business.
Access to both systems, and my personal guidance, is through my membership site, KESWiN™ Academy.
