Career Success Coach and Image Consultant
How did you find BBWO?
I am Diane L. Samuels and my passion is to help put people on the path to achieving their Plan A. “Living Your Plan A” is a concept that I came up with from personal experience. I realized about two years ago that I was in a job that I was good at, but I was not happy because I entered my profession knowing it was my “back-up plan”. I decided to go after my Plan A, which was to start my own business. I am a career coach and image consultant with over a decade of cross-sector human resources management experience. I love working with women to help them take control of their careers and go after their dreams. Too many of us have our dreams but are content to simply have them. We don’t go after them for any number of reasons – they are too risky, we don’t have the funding we need, we’re too old, we are too young….the list goes on. Where I’ve been able to Live My Plan A is in combining my love for certain aspects of HR management (the people part) with my passion for helping others present their best image. Along with my 13 years of experience in Human Resources management, I use my 6 years of experience as a makeup artist to work with women showing them how to properly apply makeup for a professional setting. I strongly believe that your image is extremely important to your ability to get ahead – right or wrong – and I want to be a part of helping women to portray the image they want so they get to where they want to be. I have a Master of Science degree in Human Resources Management from the New School University in New York City and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, from Brooklyn College, City University of New York and a certificate in makeup application from Christine Valmy International Schools. In addition to all of the above, I am truly passionate about helping my clients to ‘outgrow’ me. My goal, and I mean this sincerely, is to give you the tools to go after your goals on your own. If you decide that you prefer to have someone supporting and pushing you along, I’ll be there, but once you’ve worked with me you will have that choice.
