9-16-13 Updates from Diana

Welcome to my ThoughtsbyDiana site. I am again making changes in my life, my work and how I help people.


I will be taking Coaching Clients after a break of almost a year. I am doing this for two reasons: I miss it and there are people I need to help. Very simple. I will only have time for a few clients, but if you need me, call.

I am going to continue along this new direction my life is taking: I will help those who cannot help themselves---those people who are trapped in the vicious, horrible world of Human Trafficking, also referred to as Modern Day Slavery.

I will be writing my blog (Which I have taken a vacation from this summer), writing articles, and I will continue to work on my novel.

I hope to keep you entertained, informed and inspired. Thanks for the visit! Come back often!

January 1st “The truth is that there is never a really ‘right time’…there comes a time when one simply hopes for the best, pinches one’s nose, and jumps in the abyss.
