We had the good fortune of connecting with Deborah Allen and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Deborah, other than deciding to work for yourself, what was the single most important decision you made that contributed to your success?
The most important thing is that I decided to get back up again and live out the destiny that’s for my life. I was no longer dreaming and that killed the creativity inside of me. Finally, I decided not to allow fear, life and the process of life to stop me. It took me having a paradigm shift in my mind to move forward again in my life. There was a time that what I went through paralyzed me. I allowed myself to be stuck and immobilized. But I had to fight to get back up again and be determined to succeed.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live in the midwest city of St. Louis, Missouri. I absolutely love being in Downtown St. Louis. It’s one of my most favorite places in the world. Our city is known for our downtown and The Gateway Arch. The Gateway Arch National Park draws people from all over the world to see. The Arch grounds are spectacular to behold. The Arch is 630 feet and made out of stainless steel. It is beautiful and majestic. Inside the Arch you can ride to top, watch movies, gift shop and go to the historical museum. You can spend your entire week downtown exploring The Arch and The Gateway Arch National Park. We are also famous for our baseball stadium, Ballpark Village. Downtown you can see games for The St. Louis Cardinals as well as The St. Louis Blues Hockey team. When you visit you must have St. Louis famous pizza, Imos. This pizza is unique and tasty. Our city has the beautiful St. Louis Zoo and many attractions at our world famous Forest Park. This park is only minutes from downtown. You will love visiting with us.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I most say that I’m surrounded by some amazing people. I definitely want to shout out my leader, Bishop Glen Allen Sr. Bishop Allen has been such an amazing mentor, coach and teacher to me. He has groomed me in ministry and been my biggest cheer leader. Also the church I pastor at, Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God, has been a support and encouragement to me. Lighthouse has been an amazing team to be part of. Finally I want to shout out Dr. Kishma George. Dr. Kishma has truly been a women who has spoken to the dreamer in me. I’m grateful for this divine connection. It has opened many phenomenal doors and opportunities. Not allow that but this relationship has birthed forth greatness from inside of me.
