Debbie’s Entrepreneurial Business Journey …
Debbie grew up learning how to run businesses from the young age of 19 when she invested as co-owner in her family’s car rental and mini-storage business. By the age of 30 she sold her shares in the family business and purchased her first retail store. As she grew her retail business she had to overcome just about every business challenge along the way. Yet, she was able to take a business that was losing money and grow it 10 times over to a multimillion-dollar company with multiple locations in under 3 years. She won the National Chamber of Commerce Blue Chip Award for this accomplishment.
In 1995, Debbie sold her retail stores and started her professional speaking and business consulting firm based out of Phoenix, AZ. This career change began the next chapter in her life and it came out of her passion to support and mentor other small business owners and entrepreneurs.
Debbie strongly believes that the mentorship she received early on in her life made a massive difference in her rapid business growth, and the high level of success she was able to achieve (at any business she set her mind to). Learning the professional skills to share this powerful ‘Gift’ with others continues to inspire her.
Her #1 goal in business and in life is to help others discover their ‘Ultimate Success Potential’ by sharing the proven business strategies she has learned along her journey.
As a motivational business speaker, Debbie inspires and educates audiences with her keynote and workshop presentations at business events, franchise conferences and women in business meetings.
For the past 15 years, Debbie has also owned her own highly successful event business hosting her signature event, The Highly Paid Expert Workshop and other specialty events. At these events she teaches solo entrepreneurs, small business owners, experts, speakers and coaches how to become highly-paid experts in their niche market.
