Custom-crafted business plans

Because the best way to build something is to start with a plan.

You don't have to do it alone.

I’ll help you build your business, one step at a time.

The Goods


Distilling Your Dream is my comprehensive DIY Kit that shows you how to write a business plan one step at a time. You get a how-to eBook, worksheets, and templates that walk you through the process from start to finish. A limited budget doesn’t have to mean a limited plan.


Need a little help? If you run into a part that’s hard for you, DIY Kit PLUS combines the DIY Kit with budget-friendly packages of one-on-one consulting time with me. Choose the help you need: guide • advisor • accountability partner.

“Diane helped me mold my business plan to prepare it for funding. She did a superb job. The end result was a clearer, simpler and more persuasive document.”

“Diane consistently challenged us in an effort to prove our concept and effectively communicate our story. The result was a compelling business plan.”

Rusty Sproat

“True to her company 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.”
