Hi! I am Dana Bagnall -- the founder of Making a Difference Because You Matter and creator of Live Life Abundantly Academy.

I am a wife, mother of six bonus children, grandmother, daughter, sister, and great aunt with decades of experience in mentoring, training, and teaching in the healthcare, education, and financial planning industries. As a woman, I have learned to flourish in my career, survive trauma and loss, and overcome challenges. I’ve been saved and strengthened to walk further in my purpose when I realized who I Am and said “yes” to the calling on my life. My joy comes from sharing my awakening and breakthrough with you so that you may prosper and experience wholeness.

As a woman who learned to flourish after a sexual assault, and other life challenges, I feel I am equipped with special tools to help others to heal and move from a victim mentality to a thriver mentality. Over the years, I have successfully navigated through those dark periods, but I wasn’t always listening to my inner voice and The Divine’s message for me. I became distracted and placed my purpose on the back burner. Like so many of us, I figured I’d pick it up later. I’ve experienced three debilitating physical events that defied my medical team’s analysis and thinking with healing. Meditation, prayer, faith, and holistic health practices raised my consciousness to a physiological state that yielded miraculous outcomes. These tools have reaffirmed who I Am and allowed me to say “yes” to the calling of my life! I want others to live more fully and abundantly too!

Professionally, I’ve had the opportunity to partner with top Fortune 100 financial organizations, leading national healthcare associations, and women business owners, educating them on how health impacts women’s wealth and practical steps needed to become proactive. I’ve spoken about the “Psychology of Money” -- a sensitive topic surrounding wellness and wealth -- resulting in a citywide focus on this timely issue. I have brought my expertise in counseling and advising with the public and private sectors to the suite of services offered in my health and wellness academy. I have the following certifications:

Holistic Health & Wellness Coach, International Accreditation Organization Coaching (IAOCWC)

Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner, American Board of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ABNLP)

Hypnotherapist, American Board of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ABNLP)

I have shared a glimpse of my journey and who I am. But I’m most excited to learn more about you so you can experience an awakening and find strength in your breakthrough! Join me as you come into remembrance of who you are and discover a new way of living. Living life more abundantly is your birthright!
