Debra Poneman

#1 Best-Selling Author & Renowned Success Expert


After spending the decade of the 70’s teaching meditation to thousands and studying with the greatest spiritual masters of the east, I immersed myself in the knowledge of the great Masters of western metaphysical thought and in 1981 founded Yes to Success Seminars, to bring then “radical” ideas like your thoughts create your reality into the mainstream.
Within a few short years my seminars were being taught in cities across the US and by my certified trainers in seven countries on four continents – before the days of the Internet.My clients included Mattel Toys, Xerox, the Shaklee Corporation, Mary Kay, and more—at a time when it was not common for women to be hired as trainers. I was featured in print, radio and TV from coast to coast.

In 1983 my ground-breaking Yes to Success home study course became the first self-help product ever offered in an infomercial format.Many of my students, most of whom started out with only a dream, went on to become mega-successful entrepreneurs, millionaires, billionaires, NY Times bestselling authors, and even household names.
In 1988, true to my own teachings, I followed my passion and put my company on hold to become a full-time mom. Experiencing the daily miracle of being a parent to my two biological children and the numerous others who called our address “home” over the years, was one of the greatest joys of my life.
Since returning to the world of transformational leadership I have become a best-selling author and once again travel the globe teaching people how to say YES! to authentic and lasting success – and create lives filled with miracles!
