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. 

You already have everything you need to succeed: It's inside you. 


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've built and grown 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. And no matter how tough things got, not once did I ever consider quitting.

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 two horrific legal battles with my ex-husband. It was too much. 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 not how it happened. It was a process. I went on a journey of soul-searching, deep learning, and intuitive action.


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 hard across the face.

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. 

Regaining my grit.

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 more than simply lining shareholder pockets. 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, your dreams, and your ambitions. It's not a pleasant place to be.  I helped people back on their feet by guiding them to reignite their passion, self-confidence, self-belief, and determination. I helped them regain their grit. I loved it and had a natural affinity for it. I've been told I have a 'way with people' that ignites something deep inside them. I saw it throughout my corporate career, and I see it with my clients today. 


Which brings me to you. 

Now I work with you. 

You're an ambitious woman who wants to build, grow, and scale her business. 

You know you can do it. But you don't really believe it.

You have dreams of independence and financial freedom and you know your business can get you there. But you're often plagued by doubt, confusion, overwhelm, and the fear your plans might not work out. You hold back and hesitate. 


When you do gain some momentum, you self-sabotage by comparing yourself with others and - doubting your direction - you change your message or your focus and end up more confused than when you started. It brings your progress - and your enthusiasm - to a grinding halt. 

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. 

Many times, you've felt excited and determined because you believe 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're on an emotional rollercoaster of one day believing you're getting somewhere and the next, feeling as though you should go and get a 'proper' job. 

It's exhausting, it's not fun, and you want it to stop. You want to enjoy some of that success you've dreamt about.

Here's something I know for certain: Massively successful businesses are built by ordinary people who set clear goals, have the faith to know anything is possible, and the self-belief and dogged determination to keep going until they make it. And you will make it.

Everyone can be successful. And that means you.

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

Now it's your turn. 


I know the secrets to achieve beyond what you [currently] believe is possible. I've used them repeatedly to grow multiple businesses. And they always work. 


It's not spreadsheets, processes, systems, or strategies. It's you: Doing your thing, your way, consistently. It's no more complicated than that. 

I can't wait to work with you! Because I know you've got everything it takes to make your dreams your reality.

Everything you need to succeed is already inside you. 

It's my job to help you let it out. 

In case you're wondering, I studied this stuff as well as living it!
