My personal mission is to empower individuals through continuous improvement and entrepreneurship.

Hi, I'm Deb Donnell

FOUNDER: KESWIN™ Academy, NLP Master Practitioner, GIA Diamonds Graduate*, Author, Publisher

In 2003 I discovered what makes my heart sing. Actually, to be honest, I had known this since 1979, but I had buried it all those years in between, because others didn't think it was the right path for me to travel. It took me until 2008 to actually begin believing in myself enough to pursue my heart's desire... And then, in February 2011, a violent earthquake struck my city, and buried my dreams again.

Rather than give up my dreams I had been working hard on achieving, I went on a number of quests to develop the KESWIN™ Entrepreneurship System and fill in some gaps in my own skill-sets.  This included:

  • independently publishing several best-selling books (see cover images below);
  • completing my Gemological Institute of America (GIA) Diamonds Diploma—this means I can identify, grade and value natural diamonds; and
  • studying NLP (Neuro Linguistics Programing) to deal with my earthquake trauma, learn how to run my own brain, and guide others to on their personal development journey.

I have spent nearly 8 years rebuilding what the Christchurch Earthquake took from me in less than a minute's intense shaking.  KESWIN™ Academy is the online platform and community I set out to build way back in 2003.

It is now my pleasure to invite you to join this exclusive community of up to 100 members.  You have the opportunity to leverage off my KESWIN™ to identify yours, discover what makes your heart sing, and how you can live an authentic life following your passion.

*You may be wondering what natural diamonds have to do with identifying what makes your heart sing, and why my being able to identify and grade them will help you.  Well, this is just one of the facets of my talents and attributes. However, I use the analogy of the diamond's journey through a lot of the content and training material I publish.  I transfer my natural diamond expertise across to the metaphor of the diamonds you are seeking on your Transformative Journey.  These metaphorical diamonds are the undiscovered treasure you have buried and hidden deep inside of you.

Please explore this website for more information on how I may be able to guide you on your quest to seek your valuable treasure.  You can also visit my personal website, or follow me on Facebook.

When you're ready to find out if we're a good fit for each other, and have a personal tour of KESWIN™ Academy, please complete the booking form to set up a time to have a tour of KESWIN™ Academy and a chat with me.  I'm looking forward to meeting you soon.
