SPRING AND SUMMER 2021
Spring is here! Hope is in the air, though the Covid-19 virus still rages globally. My utmost sympathy to those who have lost loved ones to this virus, and those experiencing after-effects from being infected. May you find strength and support.
These times offer a chance to reflect. What’s important for you to do next? Responsible risk-taking is rewarding. Create and follow a plan. Thrive!
5 STAR BOOK REVIEW
“Diana Coleman knows how to extract real stories from real people: the kind that give you inspiration and hope and point a way towards how to re-invent yourself even (or especially) later in life. A must read for women – and men – who are facing that big looming question of “How do I stay relevant?” Highly recommended!”
—David Landis, CEO/President, Landis Communications, Inc and Food Writer, San Francisco Bay Times
