Having been an entrepreneur for over thirty years including coaching, writing, radio show host, owning retail and wholesale businesses, designing clothing, jewelry, accessories, I know the entrepreneur’s life. I have had my own radio show interviewing entrepreneurs over five years and have trained entrepreneurs to pitch as well as running pitch events with accredited investors.
In addition, I am the author of several books and have a weekly blog: Success & Inspiration for Entrepreneurs for five years and still going strong. We all come into life with unique skills, talents and abilities. However, we often get caught up in a direction that doesn't fit us, which causes feelings of being lost and not knowing which way to turn. With skillful guidance you can regain your own unique vision, take back power and begin to live a life that fits you and feels fulfilling and exciting. Dianne has successfully worked with many clients and has seen them become their own persons, leaders, business owners, nurturing parents and partners in joyful marriages.
My strong intuition, broad business experience and academic training create a powerful combination to help you live a vibrant, balanced life with a successful business and fulfilling relationships.
I Know What You Are Going Through I remember the exact moment when I decided I needed to make a change in my life. I had been an entrepreneur for many years, and at that time, owned a lingerie boutique full of beautiful things. However, I had been working with a therapist who was really a coach and I loved how alive I felt as we explored the deepest parts of me and I learned who I really was. One day as I stood in this beautiful boutique I said to myself: "I want my life on the outside to be the same as who I am on the inside." I had one more nudge from the Universe on a day when I was feeling really lost and I heard: "Help other people!"
I took that to heart and enrolled in a masters' program for counseling and coaching. For 2 1/2 years, including summers, I was immersed in what I loved. I graduated and began to bring that excitement to helping clients live a life that felt good because they were doing what they came here to do. After 30 years, that excitement is still there and I have the thrill of seeing my clients become the happy, fulfilled human beings they came here to be.
Dianne works with quiet skill, gentle but firm guidance and humor.
What Clients Say:
'I have had the absolute pleasure in knowing Dianne both on a professional and personal level. When I first met Dianne, I was thoroughly impressed with her energy and inspiring words. She is very committed to her work and those she is coaching, taking the time to truly understand each individual. Dianne continues to navigate me towards achieving my goals and for that I am grateful as it has been a blessing to have her guidance as I walk my journey." Brandy Freeling, Be Free Yoga Love
"I have found Dianne's coaching gives great clarity and focus to overcoming challenges and keeping the "eye on the ball.". She has a large base of knowledge and experience and I would strongly recomment her to business people wanting an edge." Chris McNeil, Pensarc
"People come into our focus path at just the right time, and that’s what I’ve experienced with Dianne Shaver. Though we’ve know each other for quite a while, we recently began a coaching relationship and it is making a huge impact on me as a person and on the direction of my business. The biggest impact is helping me recognize accomplishments and value that I didn’t recognize, whether because I tend to expect perfection or because of circumstances in the past that left me with the idea that I would never be good enough or that I couldn’t be successful. Dianne is building on a foundational program that began the process of what I call a “brain rewire job.” Through her persistent encouragement, leading, and cajoling I am gaining confidence, becoming more engaging in both personal and business relationships, and just becoming a better Ann. By encouraging me to be open to new possibilities, new opportunities are coming my way. Dianne is also an invaluable resource to help guide me through evaluating those opportunities and considering major changes in my business." Ann Beauchamp, Horse Dancer Consulting Group
"Dianne Shaver has saved my business! I recently branched out into network marketing having had no experience in the field, or any field even remotely related to it, and quickly found myself at a loss for words- quite literally! I went from someone who thought of herself as rather outgoing and friendly to a terrified little girl. I lost all confidence in myself and in my business as I was continuously confronted with the negativity and the disbelief for the business and their products. I began to let others rule my thoughts and my beliefs. I began to shrink into myself and became panic-stricken at the thought of talking to people about what I was doing. With just a few sessions with Dianne, she helped me to see thru my reactions to others to reveal my true thoughts and feelings. With that she challenged me to think and believe differently and to overcome the black cloud that was leering. She enabled me to reach deep within myself and to pull out the proud, smart, beautiful and confident woman I know I am and encouraged me to stand proud for all to see! " Cristina Ludden Rodan&Fields
"Going through life is a lot like reading a book...sometimes you get distracted, put the book down temporarily and lose your place. After meeting with Dianne, I realized exactly where I stopped before I was finished. She guided me through "chapters" that I had forgotten and challenged me to re-visit goals, dreams and ideas that once were important, but had been forgotten. Dianne is very, very good at what she does but she is much more than a business coach. Her experience, energy, and vision helped me personally and in my business life...and I will forever be indebted to her for "helping me find my place". I am positive that she can help you too!" Bobby Wallace Senior Loan Officer Anchor Mortgage Company "Thanks for all of your help. Your addressing the call to action in my advertising has opened my eyes to a lot of things. Thank you, it is a main reason in learning more about my internet marketing and what all I was doing wrong there. I hope you will see some big changes coming from us in the near future. You are priceless. " Joey Poltor The Polphia Group "I love working with Dianne Shaver. She’s insightful. She’s inspiring. She’s grounded and realistic. She keeps pushing me to be better and to keep my vision big. She’s so good at catching the words “but” and “if” and challenges their use at almost every turn. She has so much experience in so many areas, there are few things you can ask that she hasn’t already dealt with herself. She is a great resource and freely shares her contacts and expertise. She really helps me stay focused and on track. If you need a business coach or advisor, I highly recommend working with Dianne. She’ll steer you in the right direction and help your business soar." Katryna Johnson, Mirelli Training for Women
"Thank you for your advice and direction regarding my business plan and financial goals. I was able to refocus, and have begun implementing some of your suggestions. With your advice, I expect to reach my funding goals soon. Thanks." Todd Weiss. CEO Striped Pig Distillery
"The initial reason I decided to use Dianne's services was to help bring my business to the next level. Her approach to really understanding how to get at the core of what is needed to accomplish this is very refreshing. Her experiences & intuitiveness helped me to understand the reason for why we are here, why I have chosen the path I have & gave me some very practical "take-aways" that I use every day. I would highly recommend her if you are ready to look inside yourself and step "outside of the box" for answers." Pamela Rhodes, Mt. Pleasant Acupuncture
"I met Dianne last year at a networking event. I was immediately drawn to her kindly nature. I became acquainted with her on a professional level late last Autumn 2012 where I learned about her business and having sought professional counsel for a variety of reasons, I booked a counseling session. She helped me to really hone in and clarify obstacles I experienced that were roadblocks to my success both personally and professionally. From our sessions I was able to begin rethinking my perspective on things and created new habits or thought and action which have ultimately brought me much needed solace and peace and productivity!" Jeanne Doran, Doran Consulting
"Before working with Dianne, I was struggling with getting focused on an idea I had for a women's retreat. Within ONE session, she had me focused and well on my way to planning a spectacular and successful event! When Dianne says she moves fast she means it! She knows exactly what to ask to get you focused and moving forward. Give her a call today! Jodi Riley, Secrets To Being Happy
Good morning Dianne, I wanted to take this time to say Thanks for the great session. A lot of valuable knowledge was deposited into my spirit. I'm really excited about this new endeavor. Thanks again." Lisa Ephriam Business Services Account Executive Comcast Business Class
"In the entrepreneurial journey, pitching to potential investors can feel overwhelming and stressful. Dianne was the perfect person to work with prior to stepping into a pitch. She challenged and supported me in determining what was the most important information to communicate during the short amount of time you are given to pitch. Because of that session, I reframed my entire presentation. When I did pitch, I was able to pitch with confidence, and received tremendous feedback. I now have a great relationship with multiple investors because of it! Thanks Dianne!" Jennifer Santoro, Vaetas
"Sometimes a business owner needs the perspective of another successful business owner who understands the day to day struggles and how their family impacts the business. Dianne is super with her knowledge and gentle touch to guide one through the myriad of challenges and keep you focused for the long term goals. She's the "go to" gal for seeing your strengths and dealing with your weaknesses. Everyone is here for a reason and she will professionally guide you on your journey. Yes, I highly recommend Dianne's services to any business owner." Jill Lundgrin, Coastal Canine Academy
