Meet David

David Hennessey

I believe that simple is powerful.

I believe that our habits and actions can change everything.

I believe there is a solution to every challenge and that challenges make us stronger.

I also believe in you!

Stick around as much as you want to learn the tools and techniques I have learned and shared for 17 years that can help you reduce stress and increase fulfillment in your life.

Thanks for stopping by, David

P.S. I am not concerned with popularity in social media, I am more concerned with truly helping people like you. You are not a number, you are a valuable person.


Hi, my name is David Hennessey and here is my story… a bit about me and my family.

In 2009 I moved to France from Canada with my young family to quickly help a friend who needed us to be present as her health was declining. The decision to move came from the heart but in the process I lost my work, my income and my sense of fulfillment in life. Then my friend died.

This experience hit me hard and deep. But I did not give up.

I had to learn a new language. Create work opportunities. Understand a new culture. Nourish my family.

It has been a bumpy road so I have learned a lot about dealing with stress but now my life is now turned around, and recently my lady and I bought a home in a French village in the South of France and our growing children are healthy!

I want to give you the tools you can use to manage negative stress and create fundamental habits that support your life of fulfillment.

I combine my experience, education and  creations with those of my mentors to help people live fulfilling, happy lives though the application of specific daily actions I call ‘The W.O.N.D.E.R. Technique.

I specialize in working particularly with groups of people to help them create positive living habits.

I also coach, motivate, inspire and empower individuals to create and live their dreams. I am here for you. 

I have had the honor of sharing my ideas with many people. Read sample comments here.

Here is a list of companies and associations I have shared with.

What you may not know about me:

When I moved to France in 2009 I spoke no French. Now I am fluent.

I hit the worse moments in my life since 2009 with my life full of responsibilities and no option to just give up.

I fell while rock climbing, ruptured a disc and I could not walk, stand, sit or sleep without pain for 4 months. Now I am back hiking and I did it without surgery!

I have traveled to over 23 countries and lived in 3. I have hiked in the Himalayas, so much fun : )

I am really good at finding solutions in the mist of problems, it is my passion, I love to dream up solutions.

My motto is …. Never give up, everything is possible.
