Debbie Bourdon graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a double major in Accounting and Management, knowing that her real interest was Management. She felt the accounting degree would land her with a company, where she could eventually move into to a management position. Debbie started her career at Chelsea Milling Company, better known as Jiffy Mix, where she was hired to run their computer system and process payroll. During her 13 years there, she worked in their accounting department, human resources department, as well as landed a management position. She also worked with a direct sales company selling jewelry part time for a few years, as a fun way to get out of the house. At that point in her life, she felt it was important to stay home with her children until they had graduated from High School. Upon their graduation, she decided to take the opportunity to “try something else.” Looking for a career that wasn’t 8-5, one with some flexibility, where she could go out to lunch with her girlfriends when she wanted or take a spontaneous vacation, etc. The career for her was to sell Real Estate. She knew it would mean working some weekends, and evenings, but her children had moved out of the house, and her husband was also traveling for work. Unfortunately, she started selling Real Estate in 2006, right when the market started to crash. Fortunately, my husband had a stable job. As with any business, it takes time to get started. With patience, determination, and lots of hard work, she's become a top producer within Real Estate One, the #1 sales agent in her office, and the top 1% of sales within the entire Real Estate One company. Real Estate One is the largest broker in Michigan and the 5th largest in the United States.

Paul Saginaw and Ari Weinzweig joined forces, to found Zingerman’s Delicatessen, and opened the doors on March 15, 1982. All they wanted at that time was a great corned beef sandwich and an organization with soul.
Zingerman’s started as 1300 square feet of combined restaurant and specialty food retail space, run solely by Paul, Ari, and two employees. The Zingerman’s Community of Businesses now has 23 partners, employs over 750 people and generates over $60 million in annual sales from ten separate businesses: Zingerman’s Delicatessen (including Zingerman’s Catering), Zingerman’s Mail Order, Zingerman’s Bakehouse, Zingerman’s Training Inc., Zingerman’s Coffee Company, Zingerman’s Roadhouse, Zingerman’s Creamery, Zingerman’s Candy Manufactory, Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, and Miss Kim.
Paul believes that he has been successful in spite of the fact that he has limited natural talent and abilities because he has always thought that the only real limits are those of vision.
