What’s preventing you from reaching your full potential and stepping into who you were meant to become?
Often, we try to figure out what’s holding us back before we dare to push the boundaries of our comfort zone. It’s seems like the logical way, but this not only makes growth take longer, it can also be used as a tool for procrastination. It can take years to unpack all the baggage and analyze where our fears and blocks hide. But if you jump before you’re ready, your places of resistance will jump out, allowing you to identify them and challenge them at the same time.

Today’s guest is Deborah Yager. She went from being a stripper and meth addict to successful NLP practitioner and business coach. Today she talks about her journey from darkness to light, from addiction to recovery and beyond!
Deborah Yager is an inspirational success story, changing her life from everything she didn’t want. Unhappy relationships, food & drug addiction, feeling out of control with no way out. She was continually plagued by an unhealthy mindset, working in an industry that was keeping her trapped in a prison of her own making, sabotaging her growth to breaking through to a life she had only imagined others could have.
Once Deb committed fully to herself, she was able to accomplish quick change using these strategies and profound methods of transformation. If any of these challenges resonate with you or someone you know, we are excited for you to join us in one of our live training so you will discover your own success story.
Deborah started escorting and stripping at the age of seventeen and started using drugs and alcohol when she was in her early teens. She was on a mission to kill herself, though she never had the guts to go all the way. Deborah was punishing herself for not being worthy. She was labelled with a learning disability and thought she wasn’t going to amount to anything. She suffered from phobias and anxiety. Alcohol and drugs made her feel powerful.
Working as a stripper and escort, Deborah connected beauty with value, and that was the only thing that gave her validation. This transformed her into a perfectionist who had constant body issues.
She knew there was something more, but every time she tried to get clean and start a normal life, the inner voices in the back of her mind would tell her that she would relapse and fail. This became a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Deborah knew that if she didn’t changer her lifestyle, she would end up in jail or dead. She had many rock bottoms and prayed constantly for help to come her way. Then her mentor appeared and changed the trajectory of her life forever.
Deb is now a Master Coach and Certified Trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Certified Trainer of Timeline Therapy®, Trainer of Hypnosis, Thought Leader, Author, and Speaker.
Deb works with individuals and groups across multiple geographies and industry verticals in the field of NLP and it’s supporting modalities. As a Professional Coach and Trainer of master-level NLP students, Deb uses her knowledge and personal experience to move her clients to action – to create lasting change in their lives by acknowledging and removing self-limiting beliefs, replacing “problems” with desired results, and understanding, owning and executing the power to drive results in sales and their personal lives through authenticity and empowerment. She is most passionate about working with women to help them identify false limitations and move towards full potential in their desired life and/or business.
