Frequently Asked Questions
Who are your members?
Our members are individuals from all over the world, mostly ranging in age from mid-forties to mid-seventies. They are on transformative journeys to become thought leaders through content marketing and book publishing.
Can I hire Deb Donnell to mentor me personally?
Sorry, as much as she would like to help you on a one-to-one basis, she doesn't do private mentoring. This isn't her playing hard to get; it's a case of her focusing her energies on our members. The best place to get access to her is inside our membership site, KESWIN™ Academy.
Is KESWIN™ Academy right for me?
Do you want to discover what makes your heart sing? Do you want to create a passion-based venture? KESWIN™ Academy can help you do these things... and much more. We are a community committed to guiding individuals to become empowered thought leaders.
Can my team members access KESWIN™ Academy?
We work with individuals who want to go on their own transformative journey. If you prefer to delegate or outsource the work to others, then KESWIN™ Academy is not the right place for you.
What technical skills do I need?
Can you navigate your way around the Internet? Have you ever signed up for a membership site or social network? Purchased something from an online store? Then you won't have any problems being a member of KESWIN™ Academy.
What technical tools do I need?
We recommend that you use a laptop or desktop computer to log into our site, as well as your own secure, high-speed Internet connection (not public WI-FI).

Do I need my own website?
We will guide you step-by-step through setting up, building and marketing a self-hosted WordPress website. If you wish to outsource this work to a 3rd party, that's okay. While we can't recommend any, we will provide you with guidance on how to choose the right freelancer or team to outsource to.
I'm not a writer - and I don't know what to write about. Why should I join?
Writing is the basis of all content production. However, we understand that writing, and knowing what to write about, is challenging for a lot of people. So, we focus on giving our members simple, proven strategies and tools to overcome fears and blocks with writing from Step One.
How we’ve empowered other members
“There is too much information on the Internet about marketing, which makes you confused about exactly where to start. You receive precise instructions in an easy to follow format. Being part of a group offers support and mentorship that enables everyone to work together and feel part of a team, while building their own business. The focus on writing helps make writing easier.”
—Tania Wilder, Australia
“I was having trouble writing content for my blog and understanding social Internet marketing. The KATs helped me build up my confidence. It is a safe place to ask questions, get help, and immediately apply what we are learning. I have fun building lasting relationships with other members. It’s value exceeds the affordable price I pay as a member.”
—Lanette Passarelli, USA
“The Academy is a safe environment, where I feel I can be myself and ask questions, or offer my ideas. I have a support system of honest, genuine, like-minded people from around the world, who don’t think I’m crazy or stupid to try something different. The training is broken down into small parts, so I can tackle a bit at a time. I have learned both fundamental techniques, and others that I would call advanced. Material is up-to-date and presented in an understandable format. It is so great to have people helping people succeed.”
—Kris Newland, USA
“Writing challenges me. I love the videos—I can stop them and move at my own pace, and it helps me get a better understanding. The people are great! I am forming solid relationships, and can get help from my peers as well as the trainers. I have learned a lot about online marketing.”
—Heather Hansen, Canada
“The Academy has made me really excited about writing! I just needed someone to get me in the habit and doing it. Now I feel like I am on a roll. The presentation on writing our “About Me” page was outstanding and helped me so much!”
—Nicole Thomas, USA
