Here’s what others are saying:

“Margaret Mead once said, ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world . . . it is the only thing that ever has.’ And I would add, ‘especially a group of women.’ Women are a powerful lot. We are the creators of change. And when we get to work, we make great things happen. Thank you, Debbie, for creating a venue where women can gather to make great things happen not only in their own lives, but in the lives of others.”

Agapi Stassinopoulos

Speaker, author Gods and Goddesses in Love

“Women on Fire is full of the richness of voices of women who have lived life, awakened to a deeper part of themselves and are ready to share their wisdom with one reader at a time. I laughed, I cried, I cheered and I felt the stories deep in my heart. The only thing better would be an in-person connection at one of Debbie’s Tea Parties.”

“Thanks to Debbie Phillips’s personal coaching and her Women on Fire Tea parties, I am launching a travel website. I figured it was high time to do what I love. What a concept! Even though these are tough times to start any business, I will be well-positioned when the economy turns around. Best of all, I’m energized and excited about what I’m doing rather than drained and anxiety-ridden. I wish for everyone to fulfill their dreams – even if the idea seems a bit crazy!”
