Current Fire Up! Keynote Talk Topics

Fire Up Your Moxie
Uncovering, Empowering, and Encouraging Your Best Self


Are you ready to live your best life? So many of us jump into life, leadership, running a business, building, giving, growing, doing… and don’t stop to uncover what is inside us – FIRST.   When we slow down – magic happens. We find our focus, ditch the senseless hustle, and finally live life on our own terms – not the vision cast by the media, other people, or the rogue, negative voices in our head.


Debra will share some of her favorite truths (wrapped in grace, of course!) and fiery elements that translate into a life, business, and attitude that all ignite your moxie to attract ideal connections, bring you JOY, and get you on the path to living your BEST LIFE – today.


Debra will show you how to:

  • Define what guides you.
  • Discover what ignites you.
  • Declare what calls you.
  • Design your life commitments.
  • Develop habits that support you.
  • Dominate your self-talk.
  • Deliver your magnetic message
  • Decide to live in gratitude


Put your seatbelt on – this talk is going to be a fabulous, moxie-filled adventure!



Fire Up Your Culture
Creating a Magnetic Experience Starts with YOU!


Are you ready to take your growth to the next level?  Are you intentionally infusing the magnetic and unique elements of you, your agents, and your team members into your programs, processes, and conversations?

During this talk, Debra guides leaders through a simple process to define and design your best self and how to uncover this in your agents and team members. Then she shares a fresh approach to leveraging these elements to create a compelling story and weave it into your organization’s programs like recruiting and retention!


This is an excellent talk for Real Estate Associations Leadership Retreats and Summits…

Far too often a REALTOR® Association’s growth and progress are stunted by the annual board of directors/leadership changes.  This talk inspires Association Leaders to see and embrace their role as the Visionary and how to truly leverage a unique opportunity with their Board of Directors to move their Association forward – year after year after year.  Debra also shares how when we take time to define and design our best self, share our story, and clarify our vision – these elements can easily be woven into the fabric of our success as a leader!

Slay The Gender Gap
Building A Bridge of TRUST Over The Gender Gap


We need T.R.U.S.T. to build a bridge over the gender gap. Trust in each other, trust in the numbers, and trust in our gut that this is the right thing to do… that we NEED diversity and equality at the table.

This talk takes a look at the letters in T.R.U.S.T. to give us some guidance.

Empowering Your L.I.O.N.E.S.S. Pride
Identifying and supporting your champions… aka Lionesses.


One thing that holds so many women back is the focus on and wreckage created when a woman doesn’t support another woman. I believe we need to overcome this before we can move confidently into our visions and voices. This keynote talk is written for a women-centric event and shares how to start focusing on what matters, ditching the senseless hustle and waste of time of trying to get everyone on your side and living your life out loud and on purpose with your lioness pride.



Confidence of a Lioness


You’ve heard it said – “we are women, hear us roar”, right? We tend to have a fierce focus and desire to do a great job, keep our many roles straight, and exceed the lofty goals we often set for ourselves. Yet for many, it’s still never enough. No matter how much we accomplish we still feel like we’re falling short and that we’re not “enough” in some way.

Debra will guide us through fierce steps to empower the mighty voice in our head to work for us and help us conquer impostor syndrome, crush the desire to compare ourselves to others, and give ourselves grace along the way.

Are you ready to embrace the Confidence of a Lioness?  She dares you.
