Hi, I’m Debra. Life and Business Success Mentor for women in business, Entrepreneur, Meaningful Living Explorer and Host of The Debra Shepherd Podcast.

I’m a Life and Business Success Mentor and Coach for women in business and a Communications Specialist with a Master of Communications Management from the University of Technology, Sydney. I help high achieving women entrepreneurs and business owners overcome overwhelm and reconnect to their purpose by creating simplicity so they can experience more ease, joy and meaning in life.


With a background in Communications, over 20 years of combined experience working in the media, communications, PR and social media marketing. And, more than ten years as an entrepreneur, I understand what it is like to be a leader in a fast-paced industry. 


I spent years powering through chasing success, and I created it, yet, behind closed doors, it was a different story. I was struggling. I felt stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted and burnt out from pushing forward day after day in an attempt to do it all. There came a time when I had a deep knowing I was here for more and that social media was the start of something bigger.


My approach is based on my Signature Framework, The Simplicity Impact Formula and its three core pillars freedom, focus and fulfilment. This transformational process is the most effective way to reconnect to your purpose so you can experience more ease, joy and meaning in your life and step into being the joyful, fulfilled, radiant, purpose-driven leader you are here to be.


You may have heard me on The Heidi Hauer Podcast, Second Momentum Podcast, Mindfulbiz Podcast or Celebrating Simple Life Podcast. I have been in 50 Unsung Business Heroes, INTHEBLACK, Women Love Tech and HuffPost.
