Hi! *Waves* I’m Donna Higton, life coach, author, bookworm, chocaholic, chatterbox, introvert, creative, music-lover and intuitive soul-seeker. Nice to meet you. I’m so glad you’re here, and I’m really excited to be able to help you to fall head over heels in love with your life and make your Big Dreams a reality.
I currently live in the middle of England, in a little village surrounded by fields…and as far away from the beach as you can get here in the UK. So, why “donnaonthebeach”? Following my midlife crisis (which I had in my twenties – get it out of the way early, I say), I jacked in a perfectly good job that I hated, and went round Australia with a backpack. My e-mail address for the trip was ‘Donnaonthebeach’, and this alter-ego was born – a fun-loving, passionate, optimistic, free and cheerful Donna who believed in following her intuition and living life to the full. (she had always been there but had been hidden under a layer of bullsh*t about how life ‘is’)
When I got home, this was the alter-ego that refused to settle back into ‘normal’ life, and KNEW that there was something better than ‘this’. Within 3 years of my return, I had packed in the day job to work as a life coach and onsite masseuse. And even though I don’t live near a beach right now, I kept that name – one, because I love it; two, because it’s memorable; and three because the beach theme perfectly embodies what I’m about – enjoying life, being relaxed and making dreams come true.
In 2011 I stopped the onsite massage (the universe and tendonitis conspired to encourage me to make that leap) to concentrate on helping women who KNOW there’s more to life to make their dreams a reality and fall in love with their lives. Over the last couple of years, the business has been evolving again and I’m focusing more and more on using the experience and knowledge I’ve gained over the past 11+ years to create books and workshops and fun stuff to help people love their lives and make their dreams a reality. I discovered I was creative (everyone is) and that one of my favourite things in the whole world is creating these books and products. I’m so lucky that I get to do it all day long!
In 2014, I released my first proper book (I wrote a book before, but only in digital version when no one had ever heard of an ebook, plus I’m re-writing it, so it doesn’t count), and I’m absurdly proud of it, as you can see! (The sticky notes you can see are all the mistakes I found in this 2nd proof copy of the book – it’s amazing how much you can miss when you’re reading on a screen!)
When I’m not working, you’ll usually find me with my nose stuck in a book, doing yoga, walking my darling dog, laughing with friends or writing…I have notebooks, scraps of paper and digital notes everywhere. I’m really passionate about enjoying your life, taking excellent care of yourself and making your dreams a reality…and I could talk about that for months…which is lucky, cos that’s kind of what I do when coaching, writing and recording products.
