I always knew I had a book buried deep inside me, hiding behind the layers of fat, muscle, and blood coursing through my veins. When I met Debra Eckerling, I allowed my book, the book I was meant to share with the world, to come out of the closet, just like I had. Thank God, Debra inspired me to once again break through my false beliefs about my ability to write. I’ve since become known as an international blogger, the go-to guy for coming out with a twist of humor, and have been inspiring humans, regular old humans, to step out of the closets that hold them back from living their most authentic lives!
Rick ClemonsAuthor, Coach,
Debra’s been a huge help, not only in improving my writing but in having confidence as a writer. She’s easy to work with, is great about setting goals and works at my pace without allowing me to become complacent. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to work on their skills as a writer.
Joe MarchelewskiLos Angeles
LAX Coworking has had the pleasure of hosting two of Debra’s presentations in our space and she never disappoints! Debra is engaging, positive, and a must for entrepreneurs trying to set goals and take the next step in their business ventures. LAX Coworking is proud to have her as a contact and friend because she is absolutely fantastic!
Sandra SaldañaLAX CoworkingLos Angeles
I hired Debra to help me organize my creative projects, not only did she deliver on that, but she provided me with the structure and goals that enabled me get a project launched from an idea to the web in less than 3 months. Awesome personality, holds you to task and offers great creative advice and insight. I highly recommend Deb’s services to any one looking to further their creative or professional career!
Ali ShadleLos Angeles
Debra helped me jumpstart a complex side-project website that was on the back-burner for about six months. I’m highly motivated, but was too busy working on client projects and other existing businesses to get yet another side project going. Within a few weeks of in-person meetings and email exchanges, I had a solid plan. Within a month the project was live and in production. If you need help getting a project moving, I highly recommend getting help from Debra.

I recommend Deb as a goal coach if you want to get your book out for the world to enjoy! Within the first hour of working with me and my writing partner, Debra brought awareness and focus on our project’s strengths. We also realized areas where our visions of the book were vastly different. These conversations were important to get us off on the right foot. Debra pushed us from merely discussing the book to actually writing the first chapter within days of our conversation.
Kristin AmmermanOregon
I have been talking for the past year about writing my own book. It wasn’t until I met Debra at a networking event in June 2012 that I realized she would be the perfect person to help me with the process. When I saw how she works, I instantly hired her to walk me through the process. In less than 120 days my book went from a dream to an Amazon best seller. Debra … focus[ed] my efforts on the most important parts of writing my book. If you want to write your own book, I highly suggest you sit down with Debra and consider hiring her to walk you through her plan. She’s amazing.  
Josh OchsFounderMedia LeadersLos Angeles
Debra helped each member of our group kick of the New Year right with her goal-setting workshop. She led us through thoughtfully designed worksheets that helped us think about where we want to be and how to get there. She also had great answers to our questions on how to be more productive and overcome obstacles to our goals. Her workshop served to bring together the participants as we learned about each others’ goals and dreams, a great and unexpected benefit. I highly recommend Debra’s services as a coach and workshop leader.
I met Debra Eckerling two months before I lost my job and started working with this incredibly smart, strong, creative woman two months after losing my job. Since then, Debra has helped me cultivate my business and re-wire my brain. Through various brainstorming exercises, her podcasts, and moral support I was able to create a hyper-focused passionate blog, digital presence, and successful business. I do what I love, I’m working on projects for companies, non-profits, and individuals I enjoy and respect, and creating a life that I never thought possible.
Stephanie BelskyFounderLucid.Los Angeles
It’s been very helpful to talk to Deb every couple of weeks. She’s given me good advice and clear next steps that I could accomplish. I’ve gotten positive results (and saved a lot of time!)
