Tweetable Quotes

“Luckily, I managed to get the job at HayHouse, and then actually meet and interact with these people, and learn so much. It just brought me further onto my path...Dr. Wayne Dyer would come and do the show and just talk to people from all over the world. And I would listen to everything he told them and I learned so many lessons: How to pay attention to how you think, and things that you tell yourself, and the people you surround yourself with.” (24:35) (Diane)

“That’s what we’re trying to share with the podcasters that are gathering on is to give people a place to come to share their stories and their message. And the content that we’re gathering in this space is so needed right now because really we’re living in a dystopian nightmare right now.” (29:18) (Diane)

“I remember seeing this back in my HayHouse days where people would say, ‘Oh, I speak all the time. I can do a radio show no problem.’ It’s a lot different when you’re alone in front of a microphone than when you’re getting this love from people in a live audience. It’s a very different scenario.” (41:12) (Diane)

“I always tell people consistency is key. If you’re just gonna be randomly putting stuff out there, it’s just not gonna get any traction.” (49:31) (Diane)

“As divided as we seem today, we really are connected. I really believe that we are connected and we do touch people in so many ways. And so the more positively you can touch someone somehow in their life, the better. It can be a small thing like buying someone a coffee.” (1:02:50) (Diane)
