BUSINESS COACH DEBORAH RICHARDSON

A Strategic Think Partner:

I have worked with entrepreneurs for over 20 years as a mentor, business development facilitator, and business coach. After many years of working with clients purely on business strategy, I discovered the importance of combing career and business coaching with lifestyle design. It’s the combination that ensures you design your career that aligns with your values and desired lifestyle. The result is the creation of a joyful and fulfilling life.  

I have always had the ability to see things differently, intuitively. This skill, the combination of critical and creative thinking is the backbone of creating strategy. 

~In a world of continual change – a reinvention of our business, career, and desired lifestyle is inevitable. Taking the time to be in charge of that change will lead to a more fulfilling and rewarding journey ~ Deborah

ENTREPRENEUR. ARTIST. MENTOR. BUSINESS STRATEGIST.

I have a diverse background as a small business owner, artist, and business development coach. Over the past two decades, I took an interest in business development, marketing, and design. I started mentoring new business owners and knew that this was what I wanted to do – help people make a profitable and rewarding career out of what they love to do.

I returned to University in 2011 to complete the graduate program in Executive Coaching at Royal Roads and extensive training at UBC and Queen’s University in Strategy, Innovation, and Design Thinking. In 2018 I worked with the creators of the Life Design Lab at Sanford and became a certified Designing Your Life Coach.

The foundation for my business acumen came from founding three major businesses (check out my LinkedIn profile for details). I am creative by nature and have always had side hustle that involved some type of hands-on project.
