BOOK REVIEWS (many more on Amazon)
The SUMMIT: Very few books are able to convey the message the way this one does. The allegory style is so effective in drawing in the reader and providing memorable insights in the most unusual way. Bullseye Cap Amazon Review
Women at Halftime: I highly recommend this book for any woman facing the complexities of life at Halftime. EHays Amazon Review
STUCK: An engaging seven-step plan for tackling seemingly insurmountable problems. KIRKUS National Review
Your book was and will be a MAJOR PART of my recovery! (cancer) Amazingly motivating and very inspiring – I have check-marks on every page! Elizabeth Wood, Amazon Review
BAD CODE: At the intersection of art and science, Deborah Johnson illuminates how our mind can get stuck like a faulty computer, or how it can run smoothly like a high speed download. This is owner’s manual for getting sharper with age, not slower. Glenn Miya, M.D. Host of Smart Health Talk radio
MUSIC for KIDS: Highly Recommended. Laura Sullivan, GRAMMY Winning Composer & Recording Artist
Better than Brightman! Not just great...Dynamite! Boynton Beach, Florida
As promised, the audiences main reaction was “WOW” as Deborah Johnson performed in concert…she played and/or sang over fifty recognizable musical pieces during her two hour concert.” Ron Erickson, Ladysmith, Wisconson
...Most graceful singer/pianist I’ve ever witnessed… Your voice goes anywhere you direct it to go and your playing is accurate, clean and crisp. You also have wonderful dignity and humor. I knew you were good, but you are so much more!” Richard Allen Woody, original director for the FANTASTICS

MY STORY: My experience as a successful entrepreneur in the volatile field of Performing Arts makes me uniquely qualified to speak on the subject of positive mental code in life and leadership. Creating personal and professional momentum, working with a wide variety of team members including agents, managers, meeting planners and scores ofartists and actors has equipped me in running numerous varied projects and programs. I have discovered how to walk the delicate tightrope of negotiation in running showcase rooms across the country, with artists, agents, managers and hotels.
During one of my original musical world premieres, the theatre was red-tagged and I definitely felt stuck! However, through that experience, staying strong and making quick, assertive decisions for a large group of actors was imperative in discovering viable solutions. (fortunately the fire department came and opened up the theatre at the last moment and the show went on!)
In order to create business and stay in business, the mindset of a sole proprietor sitting at a table for one has been fundamental to my developing and ongoing business. It has taken courage, emotional strength and a clear mindset to make decisions, communicate and lead wide-ranging personality types that tend to be involved in the arts. With my graduate degree and experience teaching at the graduate university level, my depth of research as well as life knowledge brings relevance and direct application to women at halftime and the H.R. community. I love people, love my audiences and deeply care for students. I have been an instructor as well as an entertainer since the age of 13 and probably won’t quit until my last breath!
