Debbi Fields


This is the risk takers from Entrepreneurs Club Radio. Good enough never is! That’s the mantra of this famous lady who has a passion for cookies. Debbi Fields was always a hard worker. In 1969 she was hired by Charlie Findley of the Oakland Athletics to be one of the team’s first ball girls, and was paid a whopping $5 per hour.

Debbi didn’t use this money frivolously; she used it to buy ingredients for what would become Mrs. Fields Cookies. That was her dream, and her passion. Needless to say it worked out well.

Risk Takers Shari Fitzpatrick

Hard 60 Shari=Sherry    Pizzas=Piz-azzzz   ah ha=Ahh-hah

Shari Fitzpatrick was a successful mortgage broker.  She had lots of customers, but added a little pizzaz to her marketing by making chocoloate covered strawberries as a "give-away" to her clients.  Most nights she could be found in the her kitchen preparing those strawberries for the next days business.

Everybody raved about them so much she had an "ah-ha" moment.  Why not sell her strawberries in stores?  Well, she did just that an it REALLY paid off.
