Debbie LaChusa is an author, blogger and online teacher.

She worked in marketing for 32 years and ran a successful coaching and consulting business for 19 years. In 2013, Debbie recognized her dream was to teach. She wasn’t sure how to make it happen, so she decided to set an intention, and let the idea go. One month later she was recruited by a large online learning platform. She began creating online courses and founded The Business Stylist® Marketing Academy. Her marketing courses are now consistently among the top sellers on Udemy, and to date more than 13,000 students have enrolled.

In 2017, Debbie once again felt a nudge to do something different.

After taking what she calls a professional timeout, she was inspired to begin sharing her journey of Following Inspiration. Shortly after that, Debbie realized that was what she wanted to teach, inspiring the next step in her business journey. Debbie is currently writing and developing courses to help others live and work more inspired.

Over the past 20 years, Debbie has created three, six-figure businesses.

She’s written three books, six blogs, and has spoken to audiences across the US, in Canada, and Australia, including sharing the stage with celebrity teachers from The Secret. Debbie and her businesses have been featured in national online and offline media including Entrepreneur magazine, Forbes.com, CNBC.com, Inc.com, Home Business Magazine, and Yahoo! Finance. While she admits she’s always worked hard, she now also sees most of it was truly inspired.

Her current role.

While Debbie still runs an online business, she has resigned the position of marketing consultant (she’s letting her online courses carry that torch). She now sees herself as the Chief Inspiration Officer of the Living Inspired project. And her intention is to spread the word about Living Inspired and motivate others to join her on The Inspired Path.

On a personal note.

Married to her high school sweetheart, Debbie is the mother of two adult children, and two golden retrievers—Hope and Faith—who are certified pet therapy dogs. She’s a former marathon runner, a fraternal twin, and a volunteer and board member with Love on a Leash, pet-provided therapy.

Debbie and her husband are currently following what she refers to as her scariest, most exciting inspired idea yet: a cross-country move. And she can’t wait to see how that turns out!
