"I love Diana's teaching which is clear, logical and effective. Diana always put a lot of thought and expertise into her structure.

Not only were our monthly meetings both fun and informative but her direct feedback and advice for improving my business style was invaluable

Diana has a calm and logical method of teaching that truly connected and inspired me. I can’t speak highly enough of her course."

Diana is a very knowledgeable and professional B2B sales consultant. In just 4 weeks, she has opened doors of opportunity for our brand that we used to dream about.

I am super grateful to her and her team for sharing specific industry insights to successfully break into B2B retail. I look forward to negotiating more deals with her counsel. Thanks so much Diana ! You're the best ! :)

Lucien Aymerick  / CEO

It was such a pleasure working with Diana Barbiani! She always goes the extra mile to try to find solutions for us.


Every meeting I had with her was always filled with new and helpful information. Even during the pandemic, she was able to help pull us up by giving us alternatives on how to sell in different online platforms which had a particularly good outcome for my business.


I was introduced to new ways of selling my product such as through Doordash and GrubHub which was something I personally never thought my business could apply to.


Overall, I am incredibly pleased with her services and I would definitely recommend working with her!
