Debbie Whitlock

My path to becoming a thought leader and inspiring educator for women became clear as a young girl listening to tapes of Napoleon Hill and Zig Ziglar with my parents in the RV on road trips and wondering where the women were who made a difference – and when I’d get to hear their tape.  To make my own difference I took to the radio airwaves with a message of prosperity and good fortune based on education and empowerment not intimidation and fear.

My radio shows, Femme Finance™ and Femmenation™ touch on the areas of life where we create prosperity from personal and business financial lessons to emotional, spiritual and relational ones as well.

What lights me up about serving and working with women is knowing that women are poised on the edge of economic greatness and to be part of that process for you as a woman business owner will be my great honor and joy!

What sets me apart from other business coaches is my entrepreneurial drive and experience as a business owner.  Business opportunities have been presented to me that I was not ready for – and I have made a mess of things – and in doing so I prepared myself for the greatest opportunity of my life.  I have known what it is like to go from solo-preneur to business owner with a team of 18 outside sales people, to making hard and necessary financial decisions that affected my life and the lives of my team during one of the most economically challenging times in our country’s history – to come out the other side – leaner, more profitable and more fulfilled than ever before – and I can show you how too.

You can feel confident engaging me to guide you to resolve the financial challenges in your business.  Over the years my financial expertise has been honored with remarkable and notable accolades including year over year revenue increases – acknowledged by industry experts, Woman of The Year in 2008 by Woodbury Financial Services for my commitment to the financial enrichment of women, the publication of my first book Incredible Life and millions of radio listeners who have tuned in to hear my practical approach to prosperity since 2009.

In addition to my own radio shows, my financial and life perspectives have been featured on The I’m Thankful Radio Network, Chat With Women Radio Network, MoneyWi$e Women Teleseminar Series, Billabong TV, Northwest Real Estate Forum, Forbes, Nuwire Investor, The Seattle Times and Woodbury Exchange, and I am the personal finance expert for WakeUp Girl Magazine.  Not to mention the countless organizations who have invited me to stand on their stage and share money messages with meaning – including eWomenNetwork, The National Association of Mortgage Professionals, Success Unplugged USA, MoneyWi$e Women Education Conferences, The City of Lynnwood, WA, and MamaCon.

Here are a few things about me and my experiences that might surprise and delight you – while serving our work together

  • I travelled and performed with a youth circus during my junior high and high school years and gained a tremendous appreciation for team work – and a true understanding that there is no thing as a solo act – we all need – to borrow a circus term – spotters.
  • As much as I attempted to avoid becoming a nurse or a teacher – as that’s what “women in my family did” – I realize that while I am not in medicine and don’t work with eager young learners – I am in fact both as I heal relationship with long term financial struggles and educate and enrich the lives of the women with whom I work.
  • When I stand in high places – roof top decks, the edge of a cliff – I get this feeling deep in my gut that has be feeling like I should launch myself and experience the sensation of falling – crazy ‘eh?  I have since learned that in fact this is a form of a fear of heights and in business it reminds me that our first impulse may not lead to the best end result.

If any of my story resonates with you as a business owner – being tired of faking it and not making it or you’re feeling like a circus performer that didn’t make it to the BIG show – either then or now – then send me a note – I’d love to schedule a complimentary 30 minute consultation – hear your story and see if what I do and what you are looking for could turn out to be the beginning of a ‘beautiful relationship’.

It would be my pleasure to guide you to achieve the results you desire and the life you imagine in business.

Give me a call, drop me an email, send a carrier pigeon … I will be waiting!

You’re Four Lattes Away from Staying Top-of-Mind with Your Customers. Seriously.

For a mere $15 a month, about the cost of four lattes, you could be reaching hundreds of current and potential clients with your message.

As company owners or managers, we’re always looking for cost-effective ways to grow our business and a simple tool that many businesses overlook is e-mail marketing. When done right, an email campaign can increase brand loyalty (meaning get your customers to appreciate you even more) and drive sales (i.e. pick up the phone and make an appointment). All this for a mere $15 a month, plus some of your time.

Tempt and Entice with Interesting and Valuable Content.
You probably get a lot of e-newsletters as it is now. Which ones grab your attention and do you open regularly? Most likely it’s the ones that:
Have great content of benefit to YOU, the reader
Look professional
Somehow saves you time or money

The key to a great email marketing campaign is to educate and reward the reader, but most all keep the focus on the customer. Ditch the big sales pitch and your readers/customers will love you all the more for it.
