“True to her firm’s name, Diane distilled my ideas into a highly readable narrative. She was equally adept at helping me develop my financial projections. I’m really going to miss working with her.”

Dan Szor

Cotswolds Distillery

“Diane had the experience to quickly recognize our core strengths. She consistently challenged us in an effort to prove our concept, focus our message and effectively communicate our story. Her guidance was a key reason we were able to secure investors.”

Rusty Sproat

Figo Pet Insurance

“Diane’s business plan secured us a $100,000 business loan within 48 hours. Our plan gave us credibility with our investors and enabled us to then secure $1 million. There is no question we couldn’t have done it without her.”
