After hiring Deborah as my coach, I moved from having a general idea about my career to creating specific goals with a timetable for accomplishing them. I went from wanting to quit my job for over a year, to sending in my resignation letter. I also formulated a plan for a practice I’ve been thinking about starting for years.
Deborah’s insights into my mental blocks were startlingly accurate. Before, I was not quite ready to begin because I was preoccupied with fear of failure. Now, I am preoccupied with implementing my next steps.
Getting an excellent coach was one of the wisest things I have done. I enthusiastically recommend Deborah’s services.

I would like to thank you for all the positive changes that I've seen in my career since we started working together. After years of struggling with writer's block, I am happy to say that I am nearing the completion of a feature-length screenplay that I intend to shoot early next year. Thanks to you, I was able to overcome my fear of failure and rediscover the joys of creative writing. Now I'm experiencing total freedom around my creativity, so much so that I'm currently involved in three other film projects: a short film that I also co-wrote, and two documentary films.
In addition, one of my documentaries: "Viva Cepeda!" was shown at Lincoln Center in NYC in August. In the past, I never would have submitted my work to Lincoln Center. I thought it wasn't good enough. Your coaching and encouragement has made me see that I was playing small and diminishing my own accomplishments. Thank you for that too.
Finally, your coaching also had a huge impact in other areas, like health and other creative pursuits. I have finally quit smoking (after years of trying), I joined an urban volleyball team, and I am taking guitar lessons (acoustic). My life has take a dramatic change for the better and I know it's a result of your wisdom, determination, and commitment to myself and my life.

I had the great luck to be referred to Deborah Brown.
In just a few months we made enormous progress in places where I previously felt stuck. Deborah asks you for commitments, and helps you effect real change in rapid order.
Since I have been coaching with Deborah, I started a new job and have gone back to school. I have such a sense of optimism and hope for the future. My husband, co-workers, and family all notice the difference. I can't say enough about how beneficial coaching has been in my life.
I am eternally grateful to Deborah Brown and to the person who introduced us.

It has been my privilege to be coached by Deborah Brown.
Before I came to be coached by Deborah, I was working 80 hours a week. I did not know how to ask for more time for myself. I knew I needed to make a change, and I knew I needed to make it quickly.
During our telephone coaching conversations, Deborah guided me through the labyrinths of truths and half-trusts I had constructed around my career. I believed that I could not be successful unless I was always working. In a very straightforward, take charge manner, Deborah had me replace these limiting beliefs with positive ones instead. I became aware of how I was responsible for my career. I learned that I had the power to make it better.
As a result, I have made more time for myself, and my job performance has actually improved! I know that having a coach made the change easier and I am grateful. I benefited significantly from my association with Deborah and I highly recommend her services to others.

Deborah, I look forward to your newsletter every month. I especially liked this month's topic on listening.
I want to thank you for always listening to me. Thank you for being focused and for giving me your undivided attention when I speak. It almost surprises me from time to time that you are so interested in what I have to say. Imagine that!
Business is picking up nicely. I wrote out my goals on index cards and look at them daily. I met my first business goal already! It's only a matter of time before my practice is full and profitable. Thank you for the coaching and encouragement to start my business. Without it, I know I would have started my business eventually, but not as quickly.

Deborah, working with you has boosted my confidence level, professionally, to a level that it has never been at before. Thank you so much for your time, patience, and insight. You know the old saying that you get what you pay for, well in this instance, I obtained both in real dollars and personal gain many times over what I paid for!
