OWN IT: The Secret to Life

In search of the world's daring women leaders.

Just in time for International Women’s Day, we’re happy to announce the recent publishing of Diane’s latest book, “Own It: The Secret to Life.”

“To OWN IT is to accept the truth and deal with it, however unpleasant it may be. If we OWN our imperfections, they become our assets. If we OWN our vulnerability it becomes our strength. It is about being InCharge, it is the secret to life. I made this A-to-Z guide to remind us we must always be ourselves.” – Diane

Order the book here.
