We had the good fortune of connecting with Diana Davis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Diana, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I think the most important factor is self trust. Taking big leaps and big bets on myself has gotten me to where I am today and the more I lean in to that, the more my business grows and my impact is greater. I also believe that showing up authentically and unapologetically is key.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?\
I’m a business coach for creative entrepreneurs. I I’m extremely passionate about debunking the idea that we have to be doctors or lawyers to make the money we desire. I think, if we’re called, we should be able to make a business out of our gifts whether it be photography, coaching, or yoga, without the hustle.

I went from being a graphic designer at one of the biggest publishing companies in NYC to getting laid off and starting my own entrepreneurial career in design and photo. I’ve been through it. I’ve built multiple six-figure businesses and I know there’s a hard way and an easier way, and I’m passionate about coaching people through that journey, having gone through it before and going through it now.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would start with a morning workout class at High Ride Cycle or River Yoga then brunch at The Green Collective Eatery for a matcha and toast OR Nurture. We’d go for a hike in the mountains or at Red Rocks, maybe even catch a concert, hit up a few breweries, Zuni is one of my faves.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
All of my coaches! I’ve had SEVERAL. But investing in myself and getting support has been KEY.
