There's one thing I know for certain: You're brilliant. 

You're talented, creative, strong, and wise. You're smart, and capable of anything you set your mind to.

But here's the thing: You don't believe it. And that's the only thing standing in the way of you getting from where you are to where you want to be. 

The success you crave is right there inside you. It's been there all this time.


My job is to help you let it out. 

Diana Rigley

 I hesitated for 3 months. If I'd known that I would make this much progress in the first session, I would have called Tina straight away! Stop procrastinating. Call her!

How I got here.

I've always been one of those people who throw themselves, head-long, into everything. I don't dabble: Half-assing it just isn't in my make-up. From a Fortune 500 executive career that spanned two decades, two continents, and numerous multi-million dollar businesses and brands, to building my business, to getting my black belt in karate, to rebuilding my life after a big ugly set-back, raw desire, determination, and downright pig-headed independence have kept me moving onwards and upwards.  

I never doubted I could, so I did. 

I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth and I wasn't the perfect student in school so when, at a high school reunion, a former classmate asked "How did you manage to reach senior exec level in a Fortune 500?", I wasn't surprised. It was a fair question to which I answered, "I never doubted I could, so I did." That response was so honest it made my toes curl. 

The burning desire to 'make it', rock-solid self-belief, unshakeable confidence, and pig-headed determination to keep going until I made it were at the root of my success. I got into my zone, kept my nose down, and the successes came quickly and often. 

I built and grew multiple blockbuster businesses, breathed life into failing businesses, and exploded highly specialized, niche businesses to places no-one ever imagined possible.

And I always did it the same way. I attacked it with the self-confidence, drive, and dogged determination of someone who'd already made it. I never doubted I could, so I did. 

And it worked. Every-single-time. 

Success is 100% between your ears. 

Life was good. Well, most of it. Business was great, my career was soaring, and all appeared to be well. But behind the scenes my personal life was unraveling. 

Things went monumentally wrong. 


I know life can never be perfect, but the untold horror happening in my private life was was worse than my worst nightmare multiplied by ten. 

On the surface, I seemed to be doing well. I was running a multi-million dollar business, finishing my MBA, moving house, and fighting a horrific legal battle with my ex-husband. My usually resilient mind started to spiral out of control and once it did, the ride to the bottom was fast. My health fell apart, I lost my job, and I went on a six-month binge of Netflix and Cadbury's Mini-eggs. 

Never in my life have I felt so helpless, hopeless, and out of control. 

I was scared. No, I was terrified. I was terrified that this was my new normal. 

I spent nearly a year with my head in my hands, half-heartedly trying to find my way back to who I used to be. I'd love to be able to say that one day everything changed and I woke up one morning ready to attack the world. But that's now how it happened. It was a process. I went on a journey of soul-searching, intuitive action, and deep learning.


While the journey was long, there was an epiphany. 

One day, as I scribbled my thoughts on my whiteboard, I had a moment of such clarity, it was as though someone had slapped me across the face with a wet fish. 

It was this: I was causing my own problems. 

Holy crap! I really was. I was causing my own problems. 

That was my turning point. 

Trust yourself: It's the route to success. 

I decided right there and then that I was going back to the boardroom. And I did. But it didn't work out quite as I'd expected. 

I was sitting in yet another executive board meeting, staring out of the window, and I found my mind wandering and thinking about how much more there is to life. I still loved my work, but not in the same way I once had. I wanted to be more 'useful'. I knew I had the knowledge, experience, and desire to help other people, so there and then I made the commitment to use it.  

Fast forward a few months and I left to start my first coaching practice. 

My first practice was working with corporate executives going through burnout. For anyone who's been through burnout, you'll know it's not about exhaustion: It's about giving up on yourself. I helped people back on their feet by guiding them to reignite their self-confidence and self-belief; their mindset. We worked tirelessly on building a growth mindset and rock-solid resilience. I loved it. And the more I did it, the more I found my practice expanding outside of corporate executives. 


Which brings me to today. 

Now I work with you. 

You're a determined woman who wants to build, grow, and scale her business. 

Deep down you know you can do it. But your confidence is unreliable, and your self-belief is, well, a bit 'opaque: You can see what you want to believe, but it's like looking through fog. And though you know what you want to believe, you don't really feel it. 

You've tried numerous systems, strategies, processes, tools, programs, tech gimmicks, and 'get rich quick' ideas, but none of them seem to work for you. 

Numerous times you've felt excited and determined because you think you've found the 'magic bullet', only to find within a few hours you're back on your couch, overwhelmed, confused and crying, and binging on Netflix and M&Ms.

You've often considered taking your business to the next level but haven't because you're afraid of messing up what you already have.

Whether you're new to entrepreneurship or you've been around for a while, your mindset determines whether you succeed or struggle. 

Massively successful businesses are built by ordinary people who had the courage to believe and trust in themselves, do the work, and stay committed to their goals.  

Extraordinary results are driven by ordinary people who refuse to settle or quit.

Now it's your turn. 

You're talented, creative, strong, and wise. You're capable, smart, and can do anything you darn well please. All you have to do is believe it. 

I know what creates success because I've used it repeatedly. And it always works.


It's not spreadsheets, processes, systems, or tools. It's YOU. 

Everything you need to succeed is already inside you. 

It's my job to help you let it out.
