Meet Deb Yager
While today my bio might look flush with success, it certainly didn’t start that way. I grew up in Missouri with a loving family, but like many young women, I fell into the wrong crowd. Addiction, toxic relationships, and massive debt consumed my life. My former identity: illiterate, (drug)-addicted stripper & sex worker.
In those years, I hit rock bottom a thousand times and didn’t even realize who I was anymore. I only saw two paths before me: end up in prison, or end up dead.
Neither of these seemed like particularly ideal options, so I searched and searched until I met a new friend with whom I had an instant connection. I watched this incredible woman go from substitute teaching to owning her own studio to training other teachers. I desperately wanted to know her secret.
One day, I mustered the courage to ask. She revealed that her “secret” was a tool called NLP: Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
I remember the first time I took an NLP training – staring at the people on stage in complete awe. They spoke differently and just vibrated on a whole different level. I wanted some of that magic in my life right away.
Oh, and I met Brandon during NLP training, now my husband and business partner. But more on that later.
My NLP Coaches and Trainers saw greatness in me. They believed in me when I was unable to believe in myself.
It took me several years, panic attacks, and wild learning curves to get out of my own way. I struggled intensely with social anxiety, motor skills, language skills, and was plagued with crushing doubt and fear. But I kept leaning in. I kept showing up.
Even after I started gaining traction and achieving success, I hid a major part of myself: my story. I felt like an imposter. Would people take me seriously if I told them I was once a drug addict and sex worker? I thought I’d kicked my shame to the curb, and here it was resurfacing.
After connecting with several students with similar backgrounds, I realized the power in my story. And by opening up and sharing it, like I’m doing with you here, I hope to empower you to share your own.
Today, I’m clean. I’m successful. I’m happy. My past no longer weighs me down. I’ve transformed the most dire circumstances into a win. My passion is helping women become unapologetic, liberated, free of shame — and empowering them to speak their truth.
Because THAT is pure magic.
