Career & Lifestyle

Going green


“What would you do if you were not afraid?” ~ Sheryl Sandberg

Many of us spent significant time and effort preparing for a successful career; dreaming about it in our youth, taking college courses and working as a summer intern with the hope of one day “making it big.” The reality is, our first job will probably not be as glamorous as we would have hoped, and a successful executive must still put in his or her time to become knowledgeable and well-informed.

Whether you are just starting out, or a seasoned exec, there is always something new and exciting to learn.

Hard work and perseverance do pay off, and there is no time like the present to fine tune your professional skills. People do business with those they trust, who know how to put others at ease. Corporate etiquette, (a.k.a. People Skills), plays a vital role in your success. Visit our blog and learn some of Diane’s tips to help boost your career!


“Making a living is not the same as making a life.” ~ Maya Angelou

Your lifestyle is what sets you apart as a vibrant, beautiful and unique individual. It’s how you move around your world, what you enjoy doing and where you spend your time. A busy exec can also be a fabulous cook, a working mom can be the CEO of party planning and a college graduate can be a travel enthusiast. You are not a one-dimensional being. You are a multifaceted prism bringing life, light and joy into your busy world.

Set your goals high, put on your most stylish shoes and get ready to create a personal image, a professional brand and life you love.

Whether you are hosting a dinner party, updating your wardrobe, getting married or playing hostess to your in-law’s, we can all use a little help. Visit our blog for a few of Diane’s tips to enhance your lifestyle and have some fun!
