Debbie Phillips is the founder of Women on Fire and a pioneer in the field of executive and life coaching. She is known for her work transforming women s lives. In 1995, Debbie created a service for leaders and women in transition that previously didn t exist but that she had wished for earlier in her career. Executive and life coaching were all but unheard of in professional circles at the time, and she was among the first trained coaches in the world. After several years of coaching individuals and teams, she founded Women on Fire, an organization that features tea parties, retreats and coaching groups to extend the outreach of support for women s success. Debbie also created and co-developed Vision DayŽ, a strategic planning day that has helped thousands of people live the lives they ve dreamed of. Prior to becoming a coach, she was a reporter for the Columbus (Ohio) Citizen-Journal; a deputy press secretary to former U.S. Senator John Glenn during his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination; press secretary to former Ohio Governor Richard F. Celeste; and an executive with U.S. Health Productions Company, which featured the internationally syndicated television health and lifestyle show Life Choices with Erie Chapman. Debbie has a bachelor s degree in journalism from The Ohio State University and a master s degree in public administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She and her husband and collaborator, Rob Berkley, live on Martha s Vineyard, Mass., and in Naples, Fla.Review:
Where was this book 30 years ago when I was starting out? A welcome reminder that you gain more from adversity and failure than success --Erin Moriarty, CBS News correspondent
This book is an inspiring, motivating treasure of women's triumphs over their challenges. It is destined to be placed on every woman's bookshelf right between Chicken Soup For the Women's Soul and Eat, Pray, Love --Dr. Ranjana Pathak, Creator of Ombics exercise videos
At the heart of authentic female wisdom are the values of collaboration, support, and generosity. When these attributes are present true community and inspired leadership follow naturally. Women on Fire and its author Debbie Phillips are both the living embodiment of this ancient wisdom that we so urgently need in these difficult times. As I read this book I felt like I was sitting in a circle of wise women warmed and emboldened by the fire of their passion, highest aspiration, and courageous action. With its lively style, fearless stories, and mandate to live your dreams no matter what, Women on Fire is the perfect antidote in our gloomy and disempowered climate --Gail Straub, Author of Returning to My Mother's House: Taking Back the Wisdom of the Feminine
