What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Thank you Debra Eckerling for literally providing us with a roadmap to achieve our goals. Whether you are a stay at home mom or dad, a college student, a corporate employee, or entrepreneur, you will benefit from Your Goal Guide, which clearly outlines the steps you need to live the vibrant life that you want. Perhaps the most poignant part of Debra Eckerling’s book is the realization that most of us spend more time deciding on and planning where we want to go on vacation than how we want to live our lives. Without a clear vision we wander aimlessly—wondering why we are not happy or fulfilled. By using Your Goal Guide, we will have no more excuses for not getting to our desired destination. Thank you, Debra Eckerling! I can’t wait to start my journey!”

—Elaine Hall award-winning author, speaker, and founder of the Miracle Project profiled in the HBO documentary Autism: The Musical

“Deb Eckerling’s Your Goal Guide is a thoughtful roadmap to help you get from here (the good idea) to there (actually accomplishing what you want to do). Worth reading. But don’t just read it. Follow her instructions.”

—Dr. Chaz Austin, Ed.D., president of Austin Career Packaging & Marketing

Your Goal Guide: A Roadmap for Setting, Planning and Achieving Your Goals could not have come at a better time. I am acutely aware that another shift in my life is looming on the horizon (that shift called retirement) and unlike my work life, I have not yet any goals about what that is supposed to look like! (I mean—retirement is about not working, right?) Wrong! Goals are important to set at every stage of our lives! And what I love about Deb’s book is that she helps us figure out what our true goals really are - not sales quotas we must meet or some kind of ambiguous “I want to do **** some day.” But real, achievable and maybe BHA Goals!

“Her clarion call is to “…figure out how to set and reach your goals, while the rest of the world – and the rest of your life—is business as usual.” In such a way that you see a clear path to your new future, and the steps you must make.

“I’m very much looking forward to moving forward in my journey with the D.E.B. Method—from determining what I really want to do when I grow up (and retire), to unveiling the different options available before moving from my current position (or if I even want/need to) to creating a clear and achievable path, to finally achieving the new goals I set. Thanks Deb for writing the perfect book at the perfect time!”

—Viveka von Rosen, Chief Visibility Officer & Co-founder at Vengreso

"Finally, the road map we need for goal setting! Debra Eckerling is the master of goal setting, and in this book she shows us how each of us can successfully achieve goals with a clear plan. Being a perfectionist at heart, goal setting is the foundation for everything I do, and that's the reason why I loved this book. By using her signature The D*E*B Method, Debra teaches us how to Determine, Explore, and Brainstorm to accomplish our plan. Whether we're setting personal or professional goals, Debra got us covered!

"The book has a lovely flow, it's very easy to follow the step-by-step process, and I loved the analogy between goal setting and a road trip. After all, life is a journey, and we travel every day through each moment and experience, don't we?

"Get ready to be pleasantly surprised by your accomplishments with Your Goal Guide!"

—Sabrina Cadini, Holistic Life Coach

“Every person sets goals at some point in their life, but usually self-sabotages their efforts. Deb's book truly keeps you focused on your goals, allowing you to cancel out the noise that surrounds you, giving you concrete tips to on how to achieve your dreams with a well-plotted path to success. Deb's a genuine inspiration!”

—Jeanne Veillette Bowerman, editor-in-chief of Script Magazine, senior editor of Writer's Digest, and cofounder and moderator of #Scriptchat
