Meet Dr. Deborah
Author, trainer, speaker, coach and U.S. SBA Small Business Champion, Dr. Deborah is an advocate and expert in self-employment. Her philosophy – anyone can succeed in self-employment when they are doing what they love and loving what they do.
Referred to as the “Oprah of small business development” by IBM and a “force in personalized learning techniques” by Tufts University,” she has made it her mission to bring self-employment to the forefront in workforce and economic development conversations.
Early in her career, Dr. Deborah recognized the need to empower more individuals to discover their passion and leverage their strengths to pursue rewarding careers. Serving this need, she developed an innovative approach to empowering the “self” while optimizing the science of “employment.” Today, her programs are being utilized by workforce, community and economic development agencies across America to help individuals “create their own job.” This includes marginalized populations such as individuals with disabilities, women, minorities, at-risk youth, Veterans and Native Americans.
