Currently, she's running a property preservation business with their son Tae, which is what sparked her new business endeavor. Although Deborah ran a successful business, she found herself working 24/7. One day she worked all night; processing and invoicing work orders. She realized something had to change.
After a few simple changes, she increased their average bid invoice amount by 35%, reduced her working hours by more than 50%, hired a vendor manager and processor, and incorporated ACH services. Those simple cost-efficient changes dramatically improved productivity and profits.
Her goal now is to help other small business owners to work less and earn more! She hopes to reach the masses via her online resource. Deborah built a website designed specifically to help other small business owners learn from her many years of costly mistakes.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Had the pleasure of interviewing with CEO Nation back in May and Gresham was an awesome host! I definitely recommended this podcast!
Great variety of founder stories!
It can be challenging for people, especially women, who are in identity consuming roles such as teachers, nurses, Moms etc to think of doing anything else beyond what they are currently doing. As someone who works as a nurse, I am thrilled to see that Gresham chooses to feature a variety of founders who did not go to school for business or marketing. - Amelia Jael @rn_solutions
