keynote speech: The HERO INSIDE
Hi! I'm Deborah Johnson
...inspiring you and your company to call upon the strength inside you...the HERO INSIDE!
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 five books, three full-length musicals and hundreds of songs, many up for GRAMMY Awards. The system works but it does take WORK!
THE HERO INSIDE is a message our world needs to hear now more than ever. Most of us are facing changes in either our corporations, small business or even personal lives. The next couple of years is going to require all of us to call upon the "hero" inside to overcome the negative hurdles that the economy throws out to create a thriving business!
Deborah Johnson is truly amazing. She has a relentless ethic, warm demeanor, contagious enthusiasm and a positive attitude towards everything she touches. She has a unique combination of technical chops and people skills - equally adept at performing onstage or diving into technical IT details.

why we do it
We’ve been there...
I know what it feels like to be stuck. I came from the gig economy while also raising 3 sons, so I'm very familiar with reinvention. I took a huge risk to put my solo headliner music show on large stages. None of my friends were doing anything like this, so it took getting beyond the self-doubt & wondering if I could really do it. I did...but when the Great Recession of 2008-9 hit, many of my large music shows were cancelled, but I noticed speakers were still working. I expanded my platform to also include speaking & writing with a process to help others maximize their skills, talents & resources. It's a message of inspiration, hope & authentic growth.
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!
