Some Nice Things ...
"I had been struggling to find my voice in my business for years, it seems, and I have worked with a number of coaches in the past with just a trickle of progress. Even though I had created a program I loved and that gave participants some impressive outcomes, I still didn’t know how to talk about the work I do in a compelling way and, as a result, I wasn’t attracting clients.
In the six weeks we’ve been working together, you’ve helped me see that it’s not confidence I was lacking, it was alignment. We’ve had fun together and somewhere in there you snuck in permission to be me and create my business in a different way – not the way I think it needs to be, but in a way that feels like it is springing from within, naturally, easily. It’s authentic, it’s real, and it’s a fun creative expression of who I came here to be.
Whereas, it seems the common mantra in the coaching world these days is “raise your rates. That’ll get you the income you desire.” -- what you’ve help me to do is raise my vibration and it’s only natural that I will be receiving more money for the work I do.
It’s a small and priceless shift you’ve led me to, and I’m not even sure how you did that, but I am eternally grateful. Can’t wait to see what we'll be celebrating another six weeks from now!"
"I came to Diane Whiddon's Get Clear course feeling unclear & when I'm unclear I doubt myself. I didn't know what my message was and that affected my marketing.
Her course is such a wealth of inspiration and pleasurable self-knowing that marketing becomes fun. After the first lesson I had so much more clarity on who I am in my business and what I want.
I continue to return to her guidance & teaching to center & inspire myself."
"Diane is an awesome, dynamic, funny, conscious business coach who just gets it. I feel supported and directed by her business and marketing expertise as I grow my small business under her coaching. All of her knowledge of marketing and branding are combined with her coaching to help you hone in on your particular gifts, express your passion, and serve your right people.
She holds the bigger picture while I take the baby steps. In the end this makes it easy to want to put in the work build my business. I highly recommend Diane to everyone!"
"Diane is vibrant, sassy, genuine and straight to the point. She has been pivotal in helping me gain clarity around my purpose for starting Mothers Moving Mountains and realizing that every service reflects my highest values and intentions. Her Get Clear process is flawless and I would highly recommend it for anyone who has a vision that needs refinement and direction.
Diane offers compassion and meaningful connection with an unwavering capacity to ask the questions that ensure concrete understanding and clarity. Conversations with her are easy and fun, and I always walk away with a sense of vitality, inspiration and humor. I am so grateful for this woman and her gift to the world."
"The Get Clear workshop helped me to own the gifts and talents that I have, which make the quality of the product I offer worth more than I realized. It helped me step into my own strength. That will help me run a practice that is successful and rewarding."
"Diane has been so instrumental in helping me get really clear about who I am and what I do. Her Get Clear process helped me see how my deeply seated belief of 'only hard working people succeed' was actually becoming a barrier to my success. I learned to trust and let go more and work smarter, not harder. My practice is growing, as is my happiness and sense of peace!"
"I came to Diane because I had reached a point in my business where it was more painful to remain tightly in a bud than it was to bloom. I needed to spread my entrepreneurial wings, and knew I couldn't do it alone, nor did I want to. She had the marketing experience and mindset that I felt would be pivotal to my own growth with a spiritual foundation....
I keep breaking through my own mental barriers about marketing and product launches. I knew I had resistance and I needed the consistent accountability and coaching sessions in order to move through it. I feel like I am finally making progress in building out my own info products and have a more expanded version of how I can do it all in an authentic way!"
“Diane has been the most influential ingredient in bringing my business to life. Her ability to pinpoint what has been in the way, and assist me in removing it, is uncanny. It is second only to her innate skill in creating space for me to discover a vision of my work in the world that is clear, real and truly …Me.
With her guidance I have made more progress and experienced more success than the previous 10 years I’ve been in business. It is her genuine passion and commitment to my success that makes her so good – and ME so good! Our coaching group recently dubbed Diane, “The Business Doula.” She has a very unique ability of helping bring forth healthy vibrant and flourishing businesses!
But more than that; Diane very literally helps make entrepreneurial dreams real. If you really want to do your thing – to love it and succeed, Diane is the rock star you need.”
"Diane has helped me focus my brand, so I can attract more of the clients I enjoy. Diane's positive energy and genuine love of helping people has made working with her absolutely amazing!"
"I’ve had business coaches in the past that over-promised and under delivered. Not Diane. My coaching experience with her has been amazing, way beyond anything I could have expected. Her skill and talent has helped me get really clear on what I offer and who my right people are. Suddenly marketing is not only fun and easy, but I’m getting results.
I have gone from 2 Independent Contractors in a small office to 5 employees, a larger, brand new office and HUGE growth in my business in less than a year. That’s not even the best thing. Diane has a gift for seeing what is really holding you back in your business and supporting you to make the big (and sometimes scary!) changes it takes to grow yourself so that your business can grow in a way that truly supports your soul purpose.
Diane is more than a business coach or a branding coach, although her expertise in both of these areas is mind-blowing. Diane has created a path to clarifying who you are and who you serve in a way that leaves you no other option to shine your light bright and share your gifts with the world with confidence. She does this with years of experience, gentle guidance and a deep love for those that she works with."
“You really helped me find the little gold ember in my heart, and bring it out in my copy. THAT is so valuable…. I now know WHO I am talking to, and WHY I bother talking in the first place. You helped me step into my ideal client’s skin, and experience her pain and longing. Now I know why my work is so important, and it’s easy for me to convey in my writing and my speaking.
Every time I write new copy or create a new product, I go back to my notes from our meeting and get super clear on what my purpose is. Your support and encouragement throughout this growth process has been absolutely vital, and if I could grab every single one of my entrepreneur friends into your office, I would.”
“I came to the Get Clear workshop not having many expectations if only because I wasn’t sure what the scope would cover. That said, I was completely blown away.
Diane gave an entirely new and eye-opening perspective that truly resonated with me and how I operate and think through things.
I have since made a conscious effort to shift how I think about my business and that has made a profound effect on how I build content and create ideas for my business in the future!”

“Diane has been an enormous support and asset for my business. She’s helped me create a cohesive brand and consistent language that both clearly communicates what I do and attracts my right people.
Diane is not only an amazing expert at what she does, but she truly loves her clients and actually makes the daunting aspects of branding and marketing fun.”
“In a time when launching my business felt heavy, uncomfortable and full of fear, Diane’s process re-connected me with my purpose and my passion about what I do. The information I uncovered is like a well of inspiration and clarity that I can always come back to when I feel challenged by the entrepreneurial path.
Clarity is like a magnet for the right people to find your business, and it is one of the most powerful forces in the creative process.”

"The nugget of what you do is 'motivational inspiration' cloaked in marketing and internet savvy. I feel so blessed to connect with you.
I feel more confident and clear about my concept and the possibility of what I can do with my business. I know that if I am true to who I am, holding to my core values, what I dream is possible, and so much more.”

“Diane is not only a social marketing genius and a business guru, she’s also an incredibly genuine, funny, and inspirational person to work with… It wasn’t simply the fact that Diane is an effective business woman, it was also that she helped me to finally comprehend that running my own business effectively and successfully was entirely possible– and doing anything other than what I truly wanted to was, simply put, a waste of my talent, energy and time…
I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life regarding their small business goals, following their dreams, and doing what they’re actually meant to be doing in life.”
“Diane is more than a coach- she’s a Sherpa, a midwife, a drill Sargent, and a cheerleader. Most importantly, she holds a mirror up to you and your business and shows you all of the gifts you bring to the world. I am so grateful for the wisdom she has shared with me these last 6 months and I can see the results of our work manifested in my business every day!”
“I have had occasion in the past few months to find myself doing marketing DW-style. Sometimes I feel I should pinch myself because, guess what? It doesn’t feel like marketing!
Not only that, I find I am thinking strategically at times, and it doesn’t feel slimy at all! I am seeing so many ways your work has benefitted me, as I know it will continue to do. I’m so grateful.”

"As a result of Diane's work, I feel more clear and I have a rich sense of what I’m offering. In a very non-cookie cutter way, it ends up putting me in a frame of mind where I’m easily and enjoyably able to convey the essence of what I do. It actually becomes fun to market myself.”

"Thank you for the Get Clear process. Completing it, as you said, was a little tough. I really had to stop and think deeply. Your questions took me to "places" I've never been before. I knew that I loved my new vocation, but I didn't realize how much! Nor did I notice, until you brought it up, that my work actually energizes me and makes me feel good.
The exercises also helped me get clear on the marketing tools I want to use, and I feel some enthusiasm now, that I didn't feel before. My fears of the marketing piece of my business have mostly fallen away. Your Get Clear was a home run for me.....I am very happy with my new-found clarity, it feels great!! Thank you again."
