Donna Bond - Personal Coaching, Speaker and Marketing Consultant.

About Me:

Right now I am thriving as I help people transform their businesses, their lives and their consciousness. My intention is helping people discover their spiritual being-ness and to learn tools to assist them to manifest their heart’s desire so they love their life. My personal “why” is raising the vibration on the planet. Transformation in consciousness is the best way I know how to achieve that, one person at a time.

In 2016 I earned a master’s degree from the University of  Santa Monica in Spiritual Psychology with an emphasis in Consciousness, Health and Healing.

I partner with my husband at Paul Bond Fine Art and was instrumental in helping him launch his career as a Fine Artist. If you are looking for a dose of inspiration, take a visit to www.paulbondart.com

I am loving the work I do. I am in the flow, fulfilling my purpose and making a contribution to a better world.

Why should you work with me?

I am a loving, compassionate, Soulful facilitator spreading light where ever I go.

I have a boundless, inextinguishable energy generator in the center of my being. What this means to you is, I get shit done! I am a creative, dynamic, empathetic, resourceful leader. I am an innovative problem solver and influential communicator. I can interpret and analyze data as well as look someone in the eye and make them feel amazing about the unique gifts they possess. I can help someone tell their story, articulate their vision or bring their dreams into physical world reality. When I finally discovered that the best and most effective way I work (for everyone involved) is by following my intuition, it gave me the courage to go out on my own. I will believe in you and your dream, even when you don’t.

When we work together, you should know, I believe:

I am a luminous light being in an “earth suit” having a human experience.

The universe is abundant and cooperative.

Magic and miracles happen on a regular basis.

Everything is energy. Where your attention goes, energy flows.

Karma—the rule of cause and effect—is real.

When I see, hear, feel or am in the presence of truth, my heart opens and my eyes leak.

Anyone has the power to manifest anything you want in your life. My favorite manifestations include a Chinese Shar Pei, a three foot minion, and the man of my dreams, who also happens to be my soulmate. Better than all that is a life I truly love.

I live a charmed life and believe anything is possible.

When you see everybody as one, you recognize every one.

Rules are things that we make up.
