Deborah Chester is the inventor, founder and CEO of RimPro-Tec Wheelbands Ltd.

Born in Nottingham in England and raised in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire. When Deborah was young, she faced learning challenges with undiagnosed dyslexia. When facing her learning challenges, she was often accused of daydreaming. She was nicknamed “the dreamer” by some of her family. Left frustrated she left school at the age of 15 and started her first business, organising clothes parties for the local ladies.

In August 2003 after a horse riding accident that nearly took Deborah’s life, the Chester family decided to make a change. They packed up all their belongings and moved to the other side of the world to a small town in the North Island of New Zealand.

In 2007 Deborah finally lived up to her childhood nickname “the dreamer” when an eerily realistic dream warned her of a series of tornados that hit the Chester house. That dream ended up coming true just a few short weeks later. The Chester’s home was left severely damaged but thankfully they escaped with their lives.

Thanks to the dream Deborah had weeks previously she knew exactly what was about to happen when the tornados struck. Deborah quickly grabbed her two young daughters and ran to the back of the house to take shelter. The very spot Deborah ran to with the girls in the dream. She laid her body on top of the girls to protect them from the tornados that was about to happen. Miraculously that part of the house was the only part of the house to not be completely wrecked. Meaning Deborah, Paige & Maddison had survived the tornados. The tornados left the Chester family homeless with nothing but each other. All their material possessions were gone, forcing them to move into their friend's spare room while they regrouped.

That was a turning point in Deborah’s personal journey. She learnt that she could survive anything if she had faith. She soon realised that no set back was too dire as long as she had her family around her.

Another dream a few weeks later lead her to do something she would have never imagined doing but knowing full well her tornado dream had come true she knew that this dream gave her an opportunity not to be missed. A dream that saved their lives followed by a dream that changed their lives.

This time the dream was about a product that would not only protect wheels from curb damage but would also look stylish while doing so. That is where RimPro-Tec comes into the story.

Deborah also began to pay closer attention to her dreams, listen to her intuition and watch for signs that the universe was sending. Knowing that the answer might not always look the way she’d expected.
