Personal Note


“You Can Do Anything You Set Your Mind To”

My husband and I got away for a much needed weekend this last month. We stayed at a remote Bed & Breakfast north of Healds burg, reconnected, lazed around, ate good food, tasted some wine, enjoyed the gorgeous country and replenished. As I like to say when life is good – Thank you, Thank you Thank you!!

This type of get away was something my mother would have loved. She’s been gone for almost 20 years but a saying she had comes into mind often – “You can do anything you set your mind to.” I focus on this phrase when I want to attract a weekend get-away, new clients, improve relationships, or stay focused on what needs to be done.

I also think about the message of “The Secret” which was a huge catalyst for prosperity building a few years back. “The Secret” helped millions realize how powerful the mind is to create what we desire, if we stay focused and positive and clean out the hidden obstacles. Then the economy went south and people lapsed into fear, and many have not recovered their optimism or hope.

Let’s remember how important it is to manage our thoughts – you know – those negative, critical ones that pull us into the dark side. To focus on what we WANT and to be grateful for the blessings of life.


I help women solve their money problems, make more money and enjoy financial peace. What does that mean? Let me ask a couple questions: What gets in the way of making the money you really know you’re capable of? How do money fears or unhealthy money behaviors like overspending, too much debt, or not saving for the future block your success? Money isn’t just about money – it’s about everything!

Video Testimonial from a Money Coaching Graduate:

Diane works with the numbers and budgeting aspect of money. I refer my clients who need that assistance to her.  I work with the emotional relationship with money. You can start at either end, depending on what’s comfortable or what’s most needed.

“Through coaching with Lynn I realized I used money as clothing, as a shield, as a protector to who I was rather than as a tool and to help the people I want to help. Since opening up my thinking on money, clients have been calling like crazy.”
