Gain clarity, define your own success and happiness, and discover the difference between LIVING and merely EXISTING in 90 minutes.

Does this sound like you?

You're "successful". 

From the outside looking in, everything seems perfect. You're making your way through the standard roadmap for success (i.e., get the degree(s), find the dream job, find your soulmate, buy the house, work the job forever, retire) and you know you have it a lot better than others... but in the quiet moments, deep down inside you know that this version of success you've achieved isn't all it's cracked up to be (or as simple as everyone makes it seem).

You're busy. 

Between meetings that should have been emails, balancing your relationships, and trying to prioritize YOU, sometimes you find yourself looking around and wondering how you got where you are, but you aren't quite sure what you want to change, where to begin, or when you'll find the time or energy. 

You're sick of the "standard" self-help advice. 

As you scroll through social media, tune into podcasts, or check out audiobooks, it seems like everyone is shelling out regurgitated quotes and punchy affirmations about how "easy" it is to "manifest" the life of your dreams... but none of what they're saying acknowledges the real obstacles and responsibilities that exist.

You've turned to Google for help with at least one of these:  

  • Finding your purpose
  • Creating work/life balance 
  • Using your intuition
  • Making decisions 
  • Handling regrets and disappointments

Here's what I want you to know:

You're not missing anything and you haven't done anything "wrong."

In fact, questioning the decisions and actions that have gotten you to this point is completely normal. It's one of the gifts of being human, especially at this point in history. 

Why? 

Because gone are the days when our only path in life is pre-determined by our family, our religion, or our community. 

Instead, thanks to technology and (comparably) better health outcomes, increased financial opportunities, and other resources, we have the opportunity to essentially do anything we want... which means we alone are to thank when things go our way, or to blame if things don't work out.  

(No pressure though 😅)

But, between you and me, some people haven't quite caught up yet. Instead: 

👉🏾  They become overwhelmed with all the choices and freedom in front of them and opt out of making a decision for themselves, instead letting others decide for them.

👉🏾 They settle for the lie that the life of their dreams can never be more than a dream.

👉🏾 They don't give themselves permission to change their mind, even when they realize that what might have worked for them before no longer works for them right now. 

I don't want that for you, and I know you don't want it for yourself either.  

Because if no one's told you yet: 

👉🏾  Not making a decisions is making a decision to put the outcome in someone else's hands.

👉🏾  The dreams you have for yourself were put on your heart for a reason, and with the right strategy and intentional focus, they can become your reality.

👉🏾  The person you were at 10, 18, 21, 30, or even yesterday does not get to dictate who you get to be today, tomorrow, or the day after that. You get to decide and change your mind about the direction of your life however many times you need to, for whatever reason you want to. 

“For so long I’ve been on a path of “should” which resulted in me failing repeatedly: the result I thought I should get didn’t occur. With Diana’s help I realized I kept failing because I was working toward things I didn’t actually want. I was living by someone else's rules and plan. She helped me identify what I want and how to achieve it. Along the way I had to redefine what success means for me and abandon the things that no longer serve me. With honesty, humor, motivation and challenging words in all the right places, Diana helps you unlock your highest potential by showing you that success may not be what you have been working toward, but it is very much within your grasp and possible for you right now.”

Here's what we cover:

Module 1: The Overview

This section provides an overview of the masterclass content, what to expect, and the class breakdown. This is also where you can download a digital (fillable!) copy of my workbook that includes over a dozen activities and 100+ journal prompts to help you identify what you want for yourself, and how to get it. Note: This module is free to preview once you create a free account! 

Module 2: The Introduction

This section provides a firsthand look at what happens when life's Plan A doesn't go as planned. (Spoiler alert: It includes being laid off from the "perfect" job and bouncing back, better than ever.)

Module 3: Universal Truths

This section covers four main fairytales and fallacies we've all been taught about what it means to be "happy" and "successful" and why seeing these things for what they are is the key to true freedom and empowerment.

Module 4: The Noise

There's no shortage of opinions from friends, family, and strangers about how we "should" live, what we "should" do, and who we "should" be. This section shows you how to drown out the static and identify what truly matters for you and the life you want to live.

Module 5: Control, Influence, and Everything Else

This won't be news to you I'm sure, but it feels like there's always something going on. From the 24/7 news cycle to your own needs, desires, and wants to the very real responsibilities in life, how do you know where to focus your time, energy, effort, and attention while not completely burning out? This section shows you.

Module 6: Our Multi-Layered Lives

Most people talk about work/life balance, but the truth is that that's only one part of the equation. This section shows you how to identify the 11 (yes, ELEVEN!) areas of your life that make up who you are and helps you determine how to balance them all. 

Module 7: Creating the Vision

The section you've been waiting for—here we cover what it means to move beyond self-imposed and externally derived limitations to truly see the space, magic, and possibility of your life, right here, right now. Because, contrary to popular belief, you don't need to wait until (fill in the blank) before you can live the way you truly want to. 

Module 8: The Visualizations

This section offers two scientifically-proven activities that help you expand your vision for your life, and take action towards it.

Module 9: Your Next Steps

You didn't think it was over, did you? This section gives you concrete strategies on how to keep the momentum going, long after you're done with the class. After all, living your life by design is a lifelong gift and you know what they say—with great power comes great responsibility. But what a wonderful gift it is.

PLUS each lesson has a brief activity to help you implement and integrate the main takeaways into your own life.

“Before working with Diana, I was struggling with anxiousness surrounding my future and my past. I had a very difficult time being present in the moment and that was affecting my work, desired direction, and my overall mental state. Since our time, I already feel a greater sense of ownership over the direction of my life and a move towards self-actualization. Now I realize that the "answer" is not as complicated as I thought and I'm getting excited instead of anxious about my future!”

I believe most of us have seen or taken other Masterclasses where it teaches more about the skill, and as a service provider myself, I have taken lots of masterclasses too. Given the masterclasses I had, I know I have the skill but I feel like there's still missing or stopping me to be fully confident about what I do. When I took Life by Design it teaches what we don't know about this thing called life, we only know work and life balance but there's more to it. Knowing the other parts of life, the noises we are hearing and going through, having someone who will give us the clarity and guidance on how to balance all of it is a must. This kind of masterclass helped me to gain clarity about my self worth and how I would balance all the things that's going on in my life. I believe when everyone knows more about this we will be more mindful and be confident on everything that we will do, decide what's right for ourselves and balance our life.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When does the masterclass start and end?

    The masterclass starts when you purchase it and access to it never ends! It's designed to be a completely self-paced online course which means you decide when you start and when you finish. The masterclass is broken into 9 individual videos, each no more than 11 minutes long so you can finish it all in one sitting or space things out over the span of several weeks—the choice is truly yours!

  • How long do I have access to the information?

    Once you enroll you'll have access to the masterclass and information presented forever (!).

  • Who is this masterclass for?

    This masterclass is for you if you’re tired of "putting in the work" or "going with the flow" with very little to show for it; if you feel directionless; if you don't know how to balance parts of your life without sacrificing one thing for another; and/or if you know what you want and where you want to be, but you don’t know what you have to do every single day to get there. Life by Design will help you create a clear vision for yourself and identify how to use the time, energy, and resources you ALREADY have to get there.

  • Will I be able to work with Diana 1:1?
