Volume 11 | May 19, 2020


 What a month it has been! I started out my quarantine taking bubble baths, playing jacks on the floor, skipping outdoors with my neighbors, and excitedly planning and creating content for the relaunch of my YouTube channel. With all the fear and suffering spreading as fast as the coronavirus itself, I was intentional about giving myself time to just breathe and not get carried away with conversations or narratives that didn’t serve me. Life has been kind to me.

Now as we pass 2 months of quarantine and our society is slowly and tentatively beginning to open back up, it’s got me daydreaming about where I’ll jetset to once all this is over and it’s safe to do so. The travel bug has bit me harder than ever!!

Bali has been on my bucket list for a while as I think about exploring somewhere unique and different, while not taking me too far from the spiritual zen that I’ve become to depend on. Or maybe a return trip to Greece? Wherever I go I know it’ll be a much needed adventure.

If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be? Hit ‘Reply’ and let me know!




One place that I know I'll be is Vero Beach, FL. Because we got accepted into the Vero Beach Wine + Film Festival for my documentary 50 Shades of Silence.  I’m so excited about this! We worked really hard to produce this film over the course of several years and to know people are finally having the opportunity to see it is indescribable. 

If you need someplace to escape to in August I’d love for you to join me in-person at this festival. Go to for more information!

I purchased all of these wigs and they've been collecting dust. Time to dust them off and pull them on.

Creativity is essential right now!

Over the years I’ve come to find that during hard times one of the best things to do is to get creative. There’s a great book by Elizabeth Gilbert called Big Magic. Elizabeth is the author of Eat, Pray, Love and if you haven’t read either of these books then it’s definitely worth checking out! In Big Magic, Elizabeth talks about the importance of creativity in our lives and not just in the “traditional” sense of arts and crafts. Cooking is creative, hosting dinner parties is creative, learning to dance is creative, ice-skating can be creative. Filling your life with things that make your heart feel full, that allow you to experience freedom and joy in your everyday life… that’s creativity. As a heroine, it is your duty to add more creativity to your life, even during quarantine, so that you can live life to the fullest and be the happiest version of you. So run yourself a bubble bath, get out your jacks, change your hairstyle, put on a wig or head to the street with your Hula Hoop. Let’s get creative!



It’s almost time to get back to gathering in person. I’ve had so many people over the past month reach out to say how eager they are to just get away, commune with other women and get back to building the speaking business of their dreams. 

The All Rise Speaker Retreat on July 10-12 is fast approaching and I’m happy to have seen several driven women register already. Will you be joining us? Schedule a call with me to get more information or see if you’re a good fit for this retreat:



I've had the pleasure of being a guest on various online platforms including podcasts over the last month speaking on what it means to let yourself be heard, tell your story, get back up after being knocked down, and live a luxurious life. Click on the graphics below to tune in.

My coaching clients are taking center stage and we are featuring them on our wall of fame.

Here’s what Diane has to say….

“I love what Darieth is doing for women and that her energy and dedication is contagious. I feel that any support for women to gather self esteem and to redefine what is possible is a tremendous effort. I am working with one of her guest experts in Speak Serve Soar Cori Wamsley to help me narrow and define my book so that it is readable and marketable. Attending the All Rise Speaker Retreat with Darieth took courage and allowed me to step out of myself, or give myself permission for self improvement. It enabled me to move in steps with attending other important professional gatherings.” 

Watch what other clients have to say about working with me.
