ABBIE PIERCE

People rationalise and don’t start their best work or quit when they encounter The Resistance. Through 1:1 personal coaching and mentoring I want to help people, so that they too, can make the change they seek. Being a veteran, I am for the crazy misfits who get a thrill out of winging it.

DAVID BILLSON

If we accept that change is an inevitable part of our organizations, teams, and communities then I believe that we should be purposeful in how we go about making those changes. As a serial entrepreneur, I have co-founded several organizations to solve unique gaps that have existed in the communities I serve.

My background is in technology, starting my career as a software developer. My passion is for storytelling and helping to use communication to build stronger ecosystems. The evolution of my first company, rTraction, has allowed me to gain significant experience leading in both technical and communication projects.

I believe in the importance of sustainable business practices, certifying rTraction as a B Corporation in 20016. Like many B Corporation leaders, I think that the future of our economy is purpose-led companies using business as a force for good.

I am always on the lookout for new opportunities to bring my skill-sets to bear on helping organizations to lead and communicate more effectively.

DIANE MACKINNON

Diane MacKinnon, MD, is a Master Certified Life Coach who started out as a family physician. She got into coaching to help her patients make the positive changes they needed to make to live healthier, happier lives. After coaching and seeing patients for years (the best of both worlds) she switched to coaching and mothering, so she still has the best of both worlds! 


Diane works with a lot of medical professionals, given her background, and especially loves helping women in the medical profession who, like her, want a thriving life outside of work as well as a satisfying career.

HEATHER CHAVIN, MA

I started GoGoDone in the summer of 2019 within Seth Godin’s Akimbo Alumni Community. Since then, GoGoDone has been co-created with its amazing hosts and GoGoDone-ers and we’ve opened it to anyone who wants to be more productive and feel better about getting the hard work done.


As a remote worker, I started GoGoDone because I get exponentially more work done if I’m held accountable and schedule my projects. I also flourish with a little bit of community and laughter. The GoGoDone structure has helped me learn how long projects take and has given me an incredibly diverse place to mastermind my ideas. These are things I can’t get in a conventional office. 


Besides managing the operations of GoGoDone, I coach independently and for Seth Godin’s altMBA and lead workshops and e-learning experiences. My focus areas are leadership, productivity, accountability and habit change all through the lens of self-reflection and awareness. My background is in inbound digital marketing and counseling.
