Over seventeen years ago, Deborah Faithrose, CI, became aware of the power of communication by using words to inspire, motivate, and entertain. Most importantly, she realized that inspiration and motivation can only change the course of a person's life when it becomes a permanent state of mind, a permanent way of dealing with challenges, and a permanent sense of joy for living. Deborah holds a Masters Level Certification in Neuro-Linguistic Psychology from the National Federation of NLP giving her a unique understanding of why inspiration and motivation are temporary emotions. As a Certified Instructor, she teaches her audiences how to cross the bridge from temporary to permanent, converting inspiration and motivation into a high caliber, results oriented lifestyle.

These traits seem to imbue him with the ability to relate well with near perfect strangers, who then part his presence feeling they just met a new and dear friend. He is an asset to each club he has assisted and inspires others to be more today than they were yesterday."
