Meet David

David Hennessey

I believe that life needs to be lived to the fullest.

I believe that simple is powerful.

I believe that our habits and actions can change everything.


Hi My name is David Hennessey and here is my story…

In 2009 I moved to France from Canada with my young family to 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.

But I did not give up.

It has been a bumpy road but now my life is now turned around, I learned a new language and recently my lady and I bought a home in a French village in the South of France and our children are healthy!

Inside our French home

I work to inspire others.

I combine my experience and  creations with those of my mentors to help people live fulfilling, happy lives though the application of specific daily actions.

I specialize in coaching individuals on how to create positive living habits.

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

I have had the honor of sharing my ideas with many, 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.
