About Deborah W.

Want to talk to your kids about self-worth? I can help! I am the Founder of the Self-worth Initiative, LLC, whose mission it is to inspire kids from 3 to 103, to be confident, creative and courageous. With over 30 years in the entertainment and marketing business, I've set my sights on creating a fresh, new character who will start the conversation for you!

Meet Paisley! She's a wide-eyed, imaginative porcupine, who dreams of being an animal fashion designer. Paisley enters the backbiting animal fashion world, using her quills to pin up the swaggerific creations for a snarly fashion Diva. Overworked, undervalued, and down to her very last quill, Paisley must learn how to get her power back and believe in herself... or else...

I've been working tirelessly, creating the illustrations (see pics) that will be featured in Paisley's Last Quill. The picture book, published by Clear Fork Publishing, will be arriving in style in 2018! This exciting new brand will feature imaginative characters, merchanding and MUCH, MUCH MORE!

This Paisley brand will also include the QUILL POWER MOVEMENT, in which Paisley will translate our collective wisdom into tips, tools, and activities that children can participate in. Together, we will all make self-worth FUN!

If you're looking to reach parents with young children, I'd love to talk to you about some Cause Marketing opportunities! Or, if you would like to be one of the many featured experts, POWER storytellers, or focus group participants, please contact me!
