Hello from Deb Donnell

Deb Donnell Coach and AuthorI’m excited to meet you and to be able to share some of my story with you.  More importantly, I hope that something on my website will encourage you to tell your story before you die.

Once you get to know me better, you will learn that I have dedicated my life to pursuing a better life, and helping others pursue a better life for themselves too.  This is not an easy path to take, but it’s definitely a rewarding one!

Pursuing a better life is a high-wire journey, isn’t it?  One where you find yourself stepping into the unknown.  Sometimes it can feel very confusing and lonely.

But what if you don’t need to figure out the answers on your own?  Because the good news is that I’m walking the high-wire before you.  Therefore I’m sharing some of my experiences of my journey on this website.  Additionally, you will access further guidance through my publications, services, and training academy.

Moreover, part of being the Hero of your life’s journey requires you to travel into special new worlds.  As a result, once you step through the gateway, you discover new things about yourself.  This is where the magic starts.  You accept challenges.  Overcome obstacles.  Learn lessons.  Explore the unknown.  Find treasure.  And, most importantly, you are rewarded with personal growth from your experiences.

Furthermore, on my own quests, I’ve been lucky to have really great mentors guiding me.  Best of all, they pass their expertise on to me.  And then, I pay it forward.  As a result, I am tasked with carrying on their legacies to inspire people like you to greatness.

I work with clients from around the world, and have done since 2006.  So it doesn’t matter whether you are in New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain, Ireland, Canada or the United States of America.  Most certainly, we all have similar problems and concerns about the future.  Therefore I am committed to doing deep-dive research.  And I persist at thoroughly testing solutions to ensure they work.

For example, some of my solutions include developing the Diamond Publishing System™, established KESWiN™ Academy, and KESWiN™ Publishing.

KESWiN™ is an acronym for your valuable talents and attributes, which I categorise as your:
