A Community Strategist who helps entrepreneurs find calm building

Testimonials from past clients and community members

“Deb brought high energy, an evident desire to help me succeed, and knowledge (much built on her own experience going through the same process) to the strategy session. I left the time feeling understood and with the guidance I needed to create my plan for the next few months in my new community.”

Denise Wiseman, Host of The PX Community (February 2022) 

“Thank you Deb for supporting Agorapulse’s recent discovery efforts – you are a natural moderator and an all-around wonderful human to spend time with!!!” – Theresa Anderson, Head of Agency Business at Agorapulse (February 2022)

“Deb was the thought partner and Might Network strategist I needed to help build a framework out for a challenge I want to run in my group. Before our sessions, I wasn’t sure how to pull all of the pieces together and was a bit overwhelmed by all of the ideas I had — afterward, I felt super clear and quickly took action to bring the challenge to life.” –  Allegra Stein, Host of Misfit to Maverick Community (January 2022) 

“Deb takes something that feels so overwhelming and simply settles you into a foundation.  She has this ability to keep you focusing on your North Star while at the same time creating space for the unknown.  She is brilliant, she is calm and we couldn’t have done this without her.” – Sarah Hines, Host of Rivera Leadership Support Community. (January 2022)

“The Strategy Session was very helpful in getting me clear on my pricing strategy and business model. Deb really knows her stuff and took the time to really understand my offer and help set me on the best course.” – Chris Frager, Host of the Remote and Thrive Community (January 2022)

“Deb was very attentive, followed through 100%, highly personable!” – Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D., Host of A Course in Mindful Living. (December 2021)

“It was a great experience to meet and connect with Deb.  Thank you for your sound advice – it provided us exactly what we needed to learn more about community engagement platforms.”- Tinia Pointon, Director with More To Life (December 2021)

“Deb was beyond helpful in bringing CALM to what felt like a whirlwind process of creating my online community on the MN.  She’s gone above and beyond my initial coaching session with her by spending extra time with me, making sure my questions were answered, following up diligently, sharing resources with me, and so much more.  With her help, I felt like I had solid ground beneath me to launch my course and community confidently.  Her sweet presence is in itself calming, and supportive.  She reassured me that I am on track and know how to “do this”.  She navigated my questions, slowed me down, and helped me gain crystal clear clarity on how to proceed in a way that worked for me.  Her knowledge of the MN is brilliant, but her heart is what makes all the difference.  Thank you, Deb, you are a gift that keeps on giving and your support is invaluable.” – GuruNischan, Host of The Playground (June 2021)

“Thank you Deb Schell for your generosity. Your Calm Guide is very helpful. I love being a member of your community as well. You really do help to bring calm to community builders. And when we are calm we are better able to serve our members and ultimately grow our communities. I especially appreciate your knowledge of Mighty Networks. Even though I have taken the MN Community Builder course (several times) and the Refresher you have helped me to organize my approach, structure my plan and you can answer the tech questions for me in real-time, and in-person (zoom). I love Gina and the team and what they have built and our building and how they keep us informed. It is an amazing platform. I also appreciate the online support and the “stories of awesome”. However, it doesn’t bring me calm. You have helped me to take what we have built and gain clarity, you will help me to scale, and keep me calm in the process. Thank you.” – Mary Elizabeth Murphy, Host of STAR Resources (August 2021)

“I can’t recommend Deb highly enough for community growth and development. Her expertise in this space is second to none. She listens intently and has the ability to see past problems and issues to formulate workable solutions that get results quickly. Deb has a great blend of being very personable and approachable with being very strategic and focussed. She asks lots of incisive questions that make you think about new ways to implementable solutions. Love working with her.” – Karen Brennan, Host of the Anam Korja Community  (September 2021)

“I feel like I found the golden ticket when I found Deb. My Mighty Network got set up with ease and confidence with your guidance. I love Deb’s strategic thinking and teaching style. Deb has a wonderful sense of humor and made me feel so comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend working with Deb when you are ready to grow.” –

Lisa Pepper-Satkin, Host of the Own Your Brilliance Community 

(September 2021)

“Deb is very responsive, professional, purpose-driven, and solutions-focused. She’s also a kind, delightful, and compassionate human being to work with. Her energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of community building and the Mighty Networks platform are amazing. Her one-on-one consulting is outstanding. I have learned so much from her and have greatly benefited by being a part of her Find Calm Here Community and Mighty Mastermind for community builders. I highly recommend Deb to anyone who wants to launch, build and grow a community.” – Carol Chapman, Host of the Hearts Rise Up Community (January 2021)

“Working with Deb was a pleasure and a great experience. She offered true explanation and assistance in setting up a course and its associated components. This is something I couldn’t fully get from Mighty Networks itself.  I recommend Deb to anyone who wants to gain the knowledge and know-how for setting up and running their Mighty Network.” – Karen Zelenski, Community Manager (August 2021)

“The Discovery session with Deb was one of the most productive times I have ever invested in dealing with the challenge of creating something real in the digital world. I came to the session with tons of questions. Deb helped me realize that the best path forward is in the speed of human life. Right there, I committed myself to make this journey enjoyable and thrilling for me. And to experiment, learn, and move forward with natural energy. Deb is a young and experienced wizard of her domain.” – Samir Selmanović, Find Calm Here Community Member (July 2021)

“I first met Deb (virtually) in May 2020 when I attended a Mighty Networks (MN) masterclass. After the masterclass, Deb was instrumental in pulling together a group of attendees to form a group that met weekly to help each other with developing their MN-based businesses. Deb’s a natural leader and she has real insight into making the most of the Mighty Network platform. She recognized that people face a common set of challenges when creating new membership-based businesses and she’s using her experience and insight to provide an excellent consultancy service, supported by a series of handouts that guide people through the maze. Working with Deb is a breath of fresh air. She’s straightforward, trustworthy and kind. I come away from sessions with her realizing that I have discovered a new way to look at my business because she has offered my thoughts and analysis that simply don’t occur to me when working alone. I highly recommend Deb for anybody developing a new online membership-based business.”  – Peter Berrie, Find Calm Here Community Member (September 2021)

“One of things I love best about Deb is that she personifies her motto, “Find Calm Here.” When she was referred to me, I was overwhelmed with the sheer volume of work needed to launch my community. She took control of the situation, like a seasoned senior project manager, focused on the low-hanging fruit that needed to be prioritized, and rolled up her sleeves and helped where needed. As a result, everything was accomplished AHEAD of the deadline. Furthermore, she had a sense of ownership, which cannot be understated. At one point, she offered to work on part of the project (that I estimated would take hours) so I could go pick my daughter up from school. By the time I returned home, she had already completed the ask! It made me feel very CALM. I highly recommend Deb if you’re looking to launch a community and need expertise, project support, strategy, and guidance.” 

Tiana Clark- Host of My Driver’s Seat (September 2021)

“As a member of the Mighty Mastermind, I enjoyed being able to give and get the support of others who are also hoping to build a community on the same platform – it was invaluable. Plus, Deb knows the Mighty Network inside and out so she makes a great leader and I have found that she is fully dedicated to helping you succeed.”- Amelia Sherry, Find Calm Here Community Member (January 2021)

“Deb is an experienced online community connector, facilitator, and guide who gives her community 110% and shares all she knows with generosity and professionalism. I was wowed by Deb’s contribution.” – Analesa Berg, Find Calm Here Community Member (December 2020)

“This mastermind is a great place where you meet professionals that are on the same path as you. They come from different industries, use different approaches, some are few steps ahead of you, some are behind. This is a place where you learn, get ideas, connect, build friendships, business relationships and grow as a person and as a professional.” – Ani Papazyan, Find Calm Here Community Member (December 2020)

“Deb is so knowledgeable and she loves sharing what she’s learned with others. From community building to podcasts and lots in between. I’m thrilled to have been included in the Mighty Mastermind! She brought together amazing hosts who learned so much from her and each other.” – Joanne Flynn Black, Host of the LaunchB4 Community (December 2020)
