Hey, I am Debola Deji-Kurunmi, fondly called DDK by those who love me, and I’m your sister from another mother! Since 2004, I have actively supported women to pursue their dreams through mentoring, coaching and leadership. I have written 13 books including the very acclaimed FIREBRAND, spoken at over 250 women conferences and led an international non-profit focused on women.
My work in the last 13 years has significantly helped me grow a real understanding of the unique wiring of a woman, her gifts, struggles and different seasons of life. I have met hundreds of women, counseled quite a number as well as walked them through dark patches and bright victories. It has been exhilarating!
For many years, I had gone in large, empty circles myself; knowing that I carried something great inside but always searching for that amazing woman hiding within me. In my quiet moments, I’d see her – strong, powerful and glorious but when real life kicks in, she’d be all covered in self-doubt, fear and frustration. When I got tired of the hide and seek, I started asking myself questions that touched my core, challenged my beliefs and showed me to me.
