The Reviews are In for Pumptitude!

Thank you for reading!


An amazing book by an amazing woman! You have somehow figured out how to squeeze 48 hours out of a 24 hour day. Loved your traveling adventure stories and hair-raising experiences that made you a stronger, more confident, resilient and caring person. And, of course, the Donna Yost ‘fun factor’ is evident throughout the entire book.  It was a great read and a fabulous addition to the “Pumptitude” series. I really enjoyed it!

I’m holding your book in my hands like a precious work of art which is exactly what it is.


It is beyond amazing – the cover, the layout, the pics, the feel, the content. Wow! Wow! Wow! I’m proud to be a part of it. We definitely need to share a Dom Perignon over this.


The Life Chest Collections catalogue is pure class. The Yosts only go first class! The cover fold out is an amazing touch. All kudos to you.


Here’s to the record breaking year that you have earned already.

Onwards and upwards

Where do I start, well I cannot thank you enough for letting me be a part of the Life Chest world. Thank you for allowing me to share my story, my foundation, but most of all for being a true friend and caring enough to help. I enjoyed my visit, although It was short, which may not be bad since it prevented me from hitting Nieman Marcus and going into bankruptcy!

I read some of your book while on the plane and needless to say, got some strange looks as I busted into laughter at your stories! I found it hard to put it down. What a great book so far. 

Again, thank you so very much. I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Donna just finished your beautiful book! It gave me goosebumps, tears and laughter. Congratulations! It shows your work, your life and your love of everything and everyone, mostly your Kimmy. Much love. Thank you for sharing with us. What a treat on this cold winter week.

There is more heart than there is anything in your book, the common thread throughout. And I see and feel this more so because I know your heart and the words reflect what we all know and have experienced sharing your little life!

Re: Pumptitude and The Life Chest Reading
Donna, what energy last night!!!  I loved the acting, and most of all I loved Kim’s message.  I’m used to your positivity…nothing like it…but to see a mate be so much like his darling wife was magic.
You are both so dynamic, and so is your team!!!  Loved being there with you, Beautiful Lady in Red!!  The sky is the limit…maybe I should say the Universe is the limit for you and your dreams.

OMG, loving your book!!! I can’t put it down! I feel like I can relate to this! I know Shane is not a CEO (yet  but what you are saying reflects many aspects of my life! Thanks for writing this!!!

Dearest Donna,

So I am sure this email is just one of many that have been coming into you as people start going through the book.

I officially started reading it last night and got up to chapter 6 before having to help the kids with night snacks /homework etc.

I laughed SO hard at the shoes on the roof of the car! Mostly because I know you and then I picture and this whole thing is

more like a great movie.

This might sound really corky, but I have always been so inspired by you and you are like a light when you enter a room beaming

positive energy. With such a “We’ve got this” attitude.  Too bad you couldn’t bottle that up and sell it because it would be worth millions!! Reading that so many other people feel the exact same way about you was like whoa, she treats everyone single person

she meets with the same love and respect like you’ve known them a life time. You make people feel special and I am so honored to call you a friend, you are amazing!

I loved this book so much that I have already quoted a few lines to my husband. You may not know this but your words about being

there for your husband and having a house full of love speaks to every family and everyone can use a reminder that happiness and family is all that really matters in life – even if you’re not married to a CEO, they are still our providers/protectors & hero’s!

So Good Morning, and just wanted to tell you I’ll be finishing this book throughout the week on my trip in Mexico next week!!
