I’m Debra. My last name is Trappen (pronounced: tray-pen).


Thank you for stopping by to learn a bit more about me and my story!


Sharing my knowledge, experience, and zest for life to inspire others to take their lives, businesses and attitudes to another level and focusing them on defining it all based on their values is what FIRES ME UP and gets me jumping out of bed every single morning.



In 2002, I defined my purpose statement:
I fire people up and into their greatness!


Breakout Fire Up! Book TalkAs well as my life statement:
I live to ignite passion, infuse purpose, and inspire progress by connecting, engaging, elevating and empowering the magnificent relationships and brilliant ideas in my world.


I started d11 in 2012, wrote my first book in 2015, launched an eCourse for The Radical Entrepreneur in early 2018, and I currently working on a new “Fire Up Your Moxie” program that should be ready to unveil by the Fall!
