Debbie Allen 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, Ms. Allen 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 she 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.
Debbie Allen was honored by the US Chamber of Commerce with the prestigious Blue Chip Enterprise Award for overcoming business obstacles and achieving fast business growth for her retail success in 1997.
Ms. Allen now teaches the lessons of 'shameless' success with her innovative business-building strategies. Her contagious enthusiasm for business and professional speaking began in 1995. She started her speaking career as a retail expert and quickly became one of world's top professional speakers to the retail industry.
For the past 14 years Debbie Allen 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.
Ms. Allen is one of less than 10% of professional speakers worldwide to have achieved the honor of CSP, Certified Speaking Professional by both the National Speakers and International Speakers Associations.
