We help you develop the skills, confidence & plan to connect life and business successfully in your second half!
What we do
Hi! I'm Deborah Johnson
...a friend and partner to create solutions and systems for your second half!
I built a business as a professional pianist and vocal entertainer and also taught musical skills from the private to the graduate levels. In all these endeavors I developed successful solutions and systems to either develop my business or develop students skills so they could build their own careers. Putting systems together has also helped me create dozens of albums, write four books, three full-length musicals and hundreds of songs, many up for GRAMMY Awards. The system works!

why we do it
We’ve been there
I know what it feels like to be stuck. Coming from the gig economy (where your last job is your last job) I've had to reinvent my life & decided to take a huge risk to put my solo headliner music show on large stages. None of my friends were doing something like this, but I knew I could do it. It wasn't easy...then when the Great Recession of 2008-9 hit, many of my music shows were cancelled, but I noticed speakers were still working. I expanded my platform to include speaking & writing and absolutely love it. I teach you many of the lessons I have learned along the way as a lifetime entrepreneur & creator. You just have to do it and not be afraid of tech. Use it!
We want to bring innovation & fun
I know the freedom & fulfillment of pursuing a field you love with excellence, confidence, skill and consistency. Our programs are geared for the busy entrepreneur or professional dipping their toes into entrepreneurism who wants more out of life. We encourage you all the way with tools to help you succeed, grow and have fun while doing it!
