James Bonds, Personal Life Coach
Founder and CEO, Well Driven Life

Not many people can proclaim being born to serve people, but that’s exactly the destiny pre-ordained for Coach James Bonds. After many years of working in senior-management-level positions for companies such as Sam’s Club, Best Buy, PepBoys, and CompUSA, as well as managing/owning Mercedes Benz, Audi, and BMW dealerships, Coach Bonds discovered that his greatest joy as a manager came from developing and inspiring his staff to reach their goals, both personally & professionally.  

In 2008, James made the decision to dedicate his life’s work towards bringing out success in others. Adding to his education with the completion of the John C Maxwell Independent Certified Coaching and Speaking program in August 2014, Coach Bonds has positioned himself to fully implement his gift and purpose of serving others.

Coach Bonds is a husband, a father, and a grandfather of two.  He is married to Nechell Bonds and currently resides in Springfield, MO. He is a past Toastmaster VPPR, elected three years in a row. As founder and CEO, Coach Bonds launched Well Driven, an online environment for people to experience engaging, honest, and un-biased life changing and motivational content. Having Coach Bonds as a life coach is a highly personal experience; he shares his own life’s lessons, and toolbox of resources, to help his clients realize their potential and to live in their purpose.

Living a Well Driven Life is making the commitment to adopt a lifestyle that leads to health and wellness in every area of life.  Coach Bonds’ approach to life performance coaching is a two-way process designed to directly impact the choices that most affect a person’s personal and professional outcomes. From CEO to secretary or recent college graduate, Coach James Bonds believes that life performance coaching is for all!
