About: I am a creative and hardworking professional focused on growing in the field of Marketing , Communications, and Public relations. I am also a Musician and Songwriter and have motivated and started up numerous successful bands. I am experienced in advertising and the arts and have a passion for Dance and Theatre. That’s a little bit about me, now how about you.
I believe you too are passionate about pursuing your goals and Ambitions and that you possess the innovative and pioneering resources deeply embedded deep within yourself.
In your day to day activities include dealing with other people, such as clients or customers, co-workers or bosses, teachers or students, a spouse or a child, doctors or lawyers or bankers, you always know the right thing to do.
You are unique. You are one of a kind. You know what it feels like to pursue your goals and succeed at them daily. To live in peace and harmony at home, at work and when you socialize. You are amazed at how people are magnetically attracted to you. Suddenly you become the centre of attention where people are amazed by your every word!
We have a long way to go, individually and collectively, to achieve that which we believe is our destiny, to create a world that is better for our families, our children, and society itself. We are far from creating an appropriate level of communication, of interconnectedness, and building a community that fosters love, caring, and support. The possibilities and opportunities are endless, and as we consciously create realities in support of our beliefs, we will find that which we seek and that which we desire. We will find a world where our community is the sacred whole, where we give merely for the happiness and fulfillment we receive, where we live to make the world a better place, and where in every moment and in every connection we make a positive contribution to our greater world. Talk to me!
Message: Thank you for visiting me here!
You are a unique and wonderful fact you are amazing!
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise...........
You're so cool!
It's no mystery that what and how we think defines our reality.
It is not always easy, however, to keep our heads screwed on right all by ourselves. This is where I am pretty sure I can help.
I have a real passion for helping anyone to develop their businesses and am a keen supporter of up and coming Entrepreneurs, Stuck in a rut, need some new ideas? if I can help you drop me a line.
If you are looking to source products from China or any other part of the world, have a prototype developed, looking for opportunties? drop me a line.
Best wishes as always
You can count on me.

"If we could look into each other's hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us face, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care." - Marvin J. Ashton

“Many thanks to Donald Pillai and Bumbo International. Little Zaara totally loves her Bumbo seat... so it’s quite a hit already after just one day. I love the bath, the crawl ball, the extender, the toilet seat! EVERYTHING! Your products are truly awesome, durable and designed and styled with the baby in mind. That’s awesome planning and I wish you all the very best in all your endeavours.

The F1 is a wonderful product – not only because it allows Little Zaara’s grandparents to pull her around when the day gets a tad bit too long – you are also ensured of the baby’s safety at all times, coming equipped with a protective seatbelt to keep baby secure, yet oh so comfortable.

Many thanks for your awesome products!! I look forward to your future inventions… I’ll certainly be there ready to purchase! Waiting with baited breath… Thank you Donald and Bumbo International!!!

I'd certainly recommend this product to any expecting mothers or mother's of toddlers. They make excellent gifts as well! Go for Bumbo, you will not be disappointed!” November 15, 2010
