Debbie Allen started her speaking career as a retail expert and quickly became one of world’s top professional speakers to the retail industry. She teaches the lessons of ‘shameless’ success with her innovative business-building strategies. Her contagious enthusiasm for business and professional speaking began in 1995.
She has built and sold numerous highly successful companies in diverse industries. At the young age of 19 she became a successful entrepreneur and part owner of a car rental business in northwest Indiana. The rental company expanded into multiple businesses including mini-storage facilities, used car lot, camper sales, towing company, car wash, body shop and a towing company.
After learning how to build multiple businesses from the ground floor up, she sold her shares of the family business at age 30 and purchased her first retail clothing store. Buying a small fledgling retail business with no retail experience is not a wise move for most people, yet Debbie was determined to make it work. Within three years she turned her new passion for retail into a highly successful company, growing it 10 times over to a multi-million dollar business with multiple locations. After 15 years in the retail industry she sold her successful stores to three different owners, all for full asking price without a business broker.
For the past 14 years Debbie has presented keynotes, seminars and workshops for diverse industries before thousands of people in 12 countries around the world. She presents motivational sales and marketing presentations for retail, mortgage, real estate, direct sales, franchises, entrepreneurial business conferences and women's groups.
Debbie is a best selling author of five books on business and personal development including Confessions of Shameless Self Promoters and Skyrocketing Sales. She is also a featured expert in four motivational movies including The Opus and The Compass.
