Today, Diane combines her vast experience in her current three companies, Performance Strategies, Inc. Business Coaching Georgia and GBDN TV. Studying characters and their motivation in her acting career fueled her interest in psychology. Recently earning her Maters in Industrial Organizational Psychology (I/O), she applies her experience and learning to her executive coaching. Her professional certifications allow her the ability to use innovative psychometric assessments to help her understand her clients deeply more quickly.

Her love of learning and teaching energizes not only her coaching, but also training programs and workshops. Diane’s sense of humor keeps them entertaining. This, no doubt she owes to her clown character, Daffy Diane.

Her passion for business and entrepreneurial experience are the catalyst in helping other business owners grow their businesses. Utilizing her “show biz” background, GBDN TV, serves as a forum for Ms. Bogino to interview other business owners and leaders helping them promote their business, as well as teach and learn from one another. Her exclusive Growth Curve Strategy X-Ray Program helps other entrepreneurs uncover and solve business challenges, establish and meet growth initiatives. Combining her penchant for teaching, coaching and business has led her to include a unique service to help businesses meet global needs, ESL Business Coaching.
