About Our Guest
Twenty years ago, Diana was working as a business consultant in New York City when she had the opportunity to travel to Hong Kong, sponsored by the Henry Luce Foundation. She had planned to stay in Asia just a few months, but she met her husband there, started a family, and continued to build her career from Hong Kong, working with clients all over the world.
Diana moved in and out of corporate jobs over the years while having some entrepreneurial businesses along the way.
About two years ago, Diana decided to start a company that would incorporate all of her previous experience, as well as giving her the flexibility to pursue her own interests and spend more time with her family in Asia and in America.
Please support our sponsor, Detroit Ink Publishing, which provides an entire suite of services for writers who want to become published authors.
What Our Guest Talked About
Diana talked about seeing a need and filling it: Across Asia and the South Pacific, there were few opportunities for entrepreneurs and companies to work together to receive training and engagement programs, so she started her company to provide those services, especially with boards of directors and corporate clients.
As she discusses in her best-selling book, Future Proof: Reinventing Work in an Age of Acceleration, her focus is now helping people make sense of career disruption and reimagining a productive, profitable, and exciting future of work.
We invite you to join the YB2C Premium Facebook Group, the #1 Global Facebook Group for Creative and Solo Professionals.
Words of Wisdom from Our Guest
Diana states that she has a motto she lives by: “Don’t live the life you’ve been given; work hard for the life you want.”
