Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/14/2013 -- Debra started her career in sales in 1996. Her experience in the service industry gave her the confidence that she needed to be able to up sell and increase revenue for whoever she was employed with. For 3 years she excelled in sales with 2 different businesses. The first one was in outside sales with B&O of Sacramento. With the rising need for technology in business she was able to build a regular clientele and referral business quickly. Cell phones were in huge demand and it wasn't hard for her to sell multiple units with a great product through Pac Bell. When a new product came out that not only gave companies with a need for multiple units but also a 2 way radio it opened a whole new market for her with the Nextel product. Soon between the 2 products she was able to take her sales from 20 phones a month to over 100. Earning bonuses and prizes in her industry she some how found the time to take on another sales job in another booming industry. With being able to sell multiple units to trucking companies, construction companies and outside sales companies she was able to cut back on her hours and take on a new job in the Real Estate market selling window coverings to new home owners. After getting the sales experience she needed with a larger company she moved to a small family owned business in South Lake Tahoe. In just 4 short months she took her sales from $10,000.00 a month to over $40,000.00 a month and helped the company to exceed any goals that had ever been set.
Debra's passion for photography started in 1994 when she relocated to Los Angeles to study theater. It was there that she discovered the need for affordable photography for aspiring actors and actresses. During a trip home to the small town where she grew up she purchased her first camera. Returning to Los Angeles she started practicing on friends and classmates. It came naturally to her and people started complimenting her work and she was able to start a part time business that would later pay for her photography schooling. Word spread fast about her talent and ability to capture light and the personality of her subject. A short while later she enrolled in the photography program at Santa Monica College. She excelled in her studies and in just a short amount of time she was able go from just a few hundred dollars a month to a low 4 figure income. After studying for 3 semesters she decided that Northern California was more of a fit for her and held more of a future for growth as an artist. So she took a break in pursuit of the possibilities of being a portrait and wedding photographer. After her break she discovered her love for the mountains and the possibilities that South Lake Tahoe held for her as a photographer. She made the move there and began her life as an entrepreneur. Building her reputation in children's black and white portraits she was able to quickly build a portfolio of beautiful images. It was just a couple of months later when she met the owner of RAM Photography. In just a short amount of time she was able to build a separate division of his business and excel his sales in black and white portraits and prints. Creating her own images and prints she took the companies sales in that department from $3,500 a year to over $30,000 a year.
Debra originally had no intention in 2004 of getting into Real estate as an agent. She studied for her license so she would be ahead of everyone else on the investment side of Real Estate. Her and her husband had built a large amount of equity in their home and wanted to invest it in their future and retirement.When she realized she could use the buyers side of the commission that was made from the saleshe knew she could use this to pay her closing costs on her investments. It seemed to make sense to sign with a broker and earn her own commissions. It didn't take long for her to figure out after her first few sales that a big piece of what she was working for was being divided among several other people. It wasn't quite the business model she had envisioned. It wasn't anything thing like she was accustomed to. So she made the decision to move to 100% broker and that it would give her the freedom that she needed to excel. Her husband soon followed and the two of them partnered as buyers agents. She took Internet courses and mentored with her broker and that is where she learned the power and future of marketing herself on the Internet.The teachers and instrutors she studied with taught her the importance of contracts, follow up and customer service. She was quickly able to build a referral base of clients and in just 4 short years she took her sales of $600,000 to over $3,000,000 a year. Her income jumped from a low five figure income to a low six figure income in her fourth year. With the change in the market she went back to working part time and pursued looking at other business opportunities.
Debra had no idea in 2007 when her husband bought her a box of "Healthy Chocolate" for her birthday that soon after she would be looking to make it into a part time business. She had always been intrigued with the business model of network marketing and the concept of residual income. Starting to work it a couple of hours a week sharing it with family and friends she was able to make an extra $500 a month. That enabled her to get her product for free and earn a few hundred dollars extra to help with the bills. It wasn't long for before she started experience the health and sense of well being that the product provides. Debra started to research the owners of the company and their history in the chocolate industry. She googled the health benefits dark chocolate and started to see it every where in the media. She quickly learned and realized that she was in the right place at the right time. That summer she attended their Celebration and that's where she would meet the caliber of people that were involved with the company. Rock stars, Realtors, Business owners and professional Athletes. Everyone she met treated her with kindness and respect. It was there that she met future friends and business partners. She felt when she walked into the room she was made to feel important. The founding disrtibutors and leaders treated her and her husband like family. She was convinced that this is where her future was and with in two years she rank advanced twice and tripled her income. It was then that her and her husband made the decision to relocate to Nevada bringing her closer to the corporate office and giving her husband the potential to expand his Real Estate business. Since making the move Debra was one of fifty people chosen for a doctor supervised weight loss study. In just 3 short months she lost 28lbs which has helped her excel in both her confidence and her business. She now enjoys helping people in getting their health back and bringing some relief in their financial stresses.
