About Diane

After a success 20+ year sales and business development career, I took my experiences and launched a coaching practice in early 2006. I am now an internationally recognized business and leadership development coach and consultant, author, speaker, radio show host, and workshop facilitator. As a certified, professional coach and president of Seize This Day Coaching, I help businesses and organizations operate more constructively and profitably. I evaluate, encourage, and guide my clients.

As a speaker and workshop facilitator I merge energy and enthusiasm with rich content. My goal is to leave my audience with actionable steps as well as the excitement to implement those steps. I wrap my presentations around the concept of Clarity of Course®, believing that having clarity in business and sales is one of the key to having a successful, thriving business.

Whether I am working one-on-one with clients or speaking to a full house, I deliver on my messages of embracing the possibilities and maintaining Clarity of Course®. I wrote Lemonade Stand Selling to help small business owners understand the sales process. You can’t succeed if you don’t sell. And sales doesn’t have to be scary or hard. Lemonade Stand Selling is a straightforward, common sense and clear guide to the sales process. My sales training program is designed out of the lessons in the book.

I started my internet radio show, Accelerate Your Business Growth, in 2009 to bring valuable, actionable information to my listeners. The show is conversational in nature and each show features guest speakers who share their wisdom and take questions from the audience.

My signature sales training program, Clarity of Course Sales Training, is designed to provide business owners and sales professionals with a tactical, action and results oriented process for selling successfully. She combines training with ongoing coaching to ensure the lessons are absorbed.

I love to share information with business people. If I can help someone do better things with their business through my writing, blogging, radio show, consulting or coaching, then I am fulfilled. I have been blessed with opportunities to contribute to some great business sites including American Express Open ForumSmall Business Trends, Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, Sales Management Challenge, and Growth University.

I am also a member of the Board of Directors for the Council of Smaller Enterprises in Cleveland, Ohio, the marketing chair for WINCleveland, and past Chairwoman of the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce.

Diane is a Service Provider and Authorized Local Expert for Constant Contact as well as a member of the Leadership Council for the National Small Business Association .
