Hi, I'm Diamando
If you're seeking the typical, cookie-cutter business coach, you might as well stop reading now. But if you're ready to embark on a journey that celebrates individuality, authenticity, and the beauty of an unconventional path, then I believe we're destined to connect.
I wear the label of a "business artist" with pride, and it's not just a fancy title; it defines my approach to coaching and life. Growing up as a first-generation Greek-American, I quickly realized that the traditional measures of success—financial wealth, prestigious careers, and eventually marriage—were not the true compass of my soul.
My spirit craved something different—freedom, creativity, and the courage to listen to the whisper of my own heart. The pursuit of the conventional professions, like being a lawyer or getting an MBA, only called to me when I attempted to fit the mold of other people's expectations.
I knew deep down that my journey was meant to be unique, and would unfold on its own timeline.
Throughout my life, I've been blessed with diverse experiences that have shaped the person I am today. I've gathered certifications and skills along the way, placing each new tool into my metaphorical belt, so I can whip the right thing out when collaborating with others.
What works for one person may not necessarily work for another, and even our own journey can shift and transform as we evolve.
Here's a truth that sets me apart: there is no one-size-fits-all method for success. If you look at the seemingly disconnected pieces of my past, you might wonder (as I often did), how it all fits. I'm happy to report that with time and a shift of perspective, what once looked like random dots now forms a beautiful and clear constellation.
Life is an ongoing experiment—a continuous flow that should be embraced with joy and excitement.
So, if you're ready to abandon the conventional and explore the uncharted territory of your authentic self, I'm here to listen, guide, and co-create with you.

Why GOLIVE Spartan?
There is a lot of power behind the concept of Spartan, and that is sewn into every breath of my business (and our partnership).
Living the true Spartan way means:
• supporting your community
• truly embodying the spirit of collaboration
• forging enterprise and commerce in a creative way
• learning from the the land and protecting its (and your) energy
While the name originally came because I needed the perfect name for my olive oil brand (it's no coincidence that the word "olive" is in there), I decided to stick with it as my business shifted and pivoted.
Words have meaning, but they mean so much more when they are connected to your story.
