“What a pleasure it is to read Deb Carlin’s latest work, Build the Strength Within. I firmly believe in the concept attributed to the Greek philosopher Epictetus that it is not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. Deb’s book is filled with concepts, ideas and tactics to help you deal with what happens to you and give you the ability to be a winner, versus a victim, of your circumstances.”
– Shep Hyken, New York Times bestselling business author of The Amazement Revolution
“Dr. Carlin is the best! She is an expert at taking the most complex and difficult situations and helping you clear a path that leads only to resolution and positive results. Her book, Build The Strength Within is a re-affirmation for me that she is the master at making you realize you hold the keys and have the solutions to many of life’s daily challenges. The book is enlightening, informative, and truly gives you a blueprint for success.”

“I felt honored to get a copy of the book and materials — I was gifted it by the author! I respect everything that Dr Deb says because she seems to see clearly and is always helpful and inspiring. She is very smart and also very giving, all you have to do is be around her for a minute and you’ll know that! I’ve been able to work with her and find she has made a great difference in my life — getting me to look at things I thought I wanted to avoid but then learned I have great courage and ability.”
– Dawn Lebcowitz, Owner, Dawn’s Domestic Services
“There is a stark honesty to the way Dr. Carlin invites you to build your own inner strength. She is equal parts encouraging, humble, realistic, visionary and relative. She is capable of guiding you through the bombardment of stimuli in your personal life and helping you organize to become better. Her research along with the eager endorsement of other professionals in her field and their work is commendable.
Having graduated with a degree in Psychology, I can appreciate the self-actualization and empowerment of looking within for answers. For those who have not taken the journey to truly consider how your own mind can work wonders, do yourself a favor and set aside any preconceived notions about “self-help” or any other incongruent term. This book can, and will, help you but only if you allow it to do so. The first step toward any plan is to commit to an open mind and being true to the process. Dr. Carlin has given you a gift, and that is one proper self-exploration. You can find the time to read this, as you owe it to yourself.”
