Much of my joy these days is because of Better Beyond. I read about Diane’s programs in Reader’s Digest and couldn’t resist checking out her website. I was dealing with enormous stress about growing older and not being where I wanted to be in my career. Today, I know how to balance work and life far better. Diane, you rock!

I cannot begin to tell you how much the Midlife Mindshift has helped me. This has proven to me, that it’s okay to dream again.

Diane your coaching changed my life. After our kids went off to college, my husband and I were faced with the growing dissatisfaction of our relationship. We weren’t living together, we were existing together. Your coaching was the turning point for me when I knew I had to make a positive change. It took a lot of work and effort but Robert and I are like honeymooners once again and we have you to thank. -Pat Freeze, 54, Detroit

Diane, wow, what a weekend! I was so excited about your Divorce Recovery Roadmap that I completed all of the modules in three days!– Jenny Gluck, 45, Manhattan
No one wants to think that their "soul mate" is going to up and book on them after decades of marriage. When we say those vows, many of us really mean it with all our heart and soul. My very best friend has been absolutely devastated as her long-term marriage ended, pretty abruptly, this past year and I have been trying to help. We have both read Diane Adkins "Rewriting Your Happily Ever After" and this is the most helpful guide to post-divorce recovery I have seen yet, particularly for those considered "middle aged".
Written by someone who has been there, this is a great guide that takes the new divorcee through the various stages of the divorce, grieving, letting go, finding a new attitude, and starting over. Some very inspirational and insightful information here. Highly recommended. - Tricia A
"After my husband left and asked for a divorce I felt as if the whole world had come crashing down on me. I was in a panic, upset and not sure how I was going to make it thru it all. I had been married so long, and now instead of facing the future I had planned, I was again a single women. The information found on this site is both inspiring and powerful. It should make women who are going through the same thing much stronger." - Hope Richardson, Warminster, PA
Often it is hard to see past the negatives that plague life, especially when more than one is thrown at you. Seeing through these and using them as a spring board to bettering yourself is often not at the top of the list, since we're too busy trying to mitigate the pain that they cause. But by using Diane Adkins' guides, tips, and strategies, getting through the negatives, whether it be a mid-life crisis or divorce can help turn everything around.
I've struggled with seeing the positives in my life and often am upset because I know that a positive mindset can make a world of difference when it comes to being happy. By using Diane's guides, I've been able to slowly catch myself during those negative moments, allowing me to control them. I've been so used to being on a negative “train” that catching these thoughts were difficult – as it had become so normal to be in such a negative state. But with what I have learned from Diane, I am starting to see the benefits of the mindset change I've been needing. - Chantelle C.
This website touches women in so many different ways. I needed a swift kick about three years ago and The Midlife Optimist gave it to me! My mindset has truly shifted from caring less to getting right. –Joyce Mueller, 49, Long Beach
“A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to Diane and her wonderful wisdom. Her stress solutions are second to none. I have benefited so much – just when I really needed it.”
