The Chance

Dianne Shaver

While everything is on hold, we are not. Our minds, our spirits, our energy is still working as usual. What’s different now is we are not rushing around and have the opportunity to pay attention in a way we usually do not. Given that, we can now begin to focus on what kind of world we want to live in and stop waiting to be told what that will be when this is over. We are all connected, not by actual contact, but by the fact that we all live on this planet. So, when we work together even on the level of thought, change does take place.

So, again, the question – what kind of world do you want to live it? Do you want a kinder more empathetic world? Do you want a world where every human is valued? Do you want a world based on integrity? Do you want a world where we use our gifts and talents? Do you want a world filled with creativity and innovation that works for all? Do you want a world where the most vulnerable are a common responsibility? Do you want a world that values the individual over money? Do you want a world where we are treated equally? Do you want a world where we support one another’s dreams and the right to be?

Obviously, that’s the world I envision. It’s clear we cannot continue as we have been. That’s one of the gifts of this time in quarantine. Again, I am not forgetting those who are suffering- those stricken and those who are caring for them, the frontline workers keeping our groceries and necessities coming. The caregivers and those who are providing essential services are all demonstrating the world I envision. Plus they are showing us what is possible when we care. It’s a very hard lesson, but if we learn it we do not have to go through things like this again.

0 (1)

Every person who is caring for the ill – the doctors, nurses, technicians, those sewing masks, keeping the grocery stores open and stocked, driving the trucks that bring our food and necessities, delivering the mail, preparing and giving food to the homeless, paying employees when the business is closed, keeping the banks open and all of those who are doing similar things whom I may have not mentioned. They demonstrate what a world where we care for one another looks like. There is no reason that cannot continue when we come out of this. Ture, it will look different from what is going on right now but we cannot go back to the uncaring, dog eat dog world we had before all of this. Most of the time that attitude is cloaked in respectability and a smile and the right words, but the underlying commitment to only self and family and those who are like us is still there. I have seen people who are pillars of their community and their church spew hatred toward those who are different. This cannot be. Not if we want to survive as a human race.

Now is the time to decide what we want our culture to be. It’s not up to those in power. Change has always come from the bottom up and it has been small groups standing up for what they want that have brought every significant change. There was a saying – “what if there was a war and no one came?” We can change it to – “what if there was blind greed and cruelty and we didn’t buy into it, promote it or live it?” We do have that choice. We are not powerless. We have been told that we are but it is not true. The first thing we can do is to stop listening to “experts” and listen to our heart and what it is telling us and where it is leading us. No one can tell you what’s right for you but you. Doing that easy and small thing is the beginning of changing the world. Because from that place of truth we can do no harm, experience compassion and live a life that as meaning. And when we each do that it adds up to a changed world. We now have that chance.

Best wishes for creating a better world

8 Wonderful years of hosting

Well if you told me that I would be doing podcasting hosting for 8 years already way back then, I would not have believed you.

My first show with Authentic You media was live and a disaster, but I prevailed 13 months of live podcasting, before going to my own network PLV Radio. That name changed 2 years later to Self Discovery Radio, then 3 years after that Self Discovery Radio/TV as I went into videos too. Shortly after that I changed it again to Self Discovery Media.

I have learned so much about myself, about human nature, about health, wealth, love and empowerment through the years that it inspired me to develop another platform to enhance my guest’s knowledge even further afield.

So two years ago, Self Discovery Community was blueprinted. Time always dictates when things should be ready to go further, and it took two years to find someone who would build a platform that could cope with the advancement.

It was meant to be ready for my 8 year anniversary on April 4th, but my developer is behind due to external pressures and working with someone who does not get technology.  ( as you can see by these sites I did myself)

So Discovering will come to pass soon, but as I promised to deliver this content by now, I have made a makeshift site to hold the content for now till the new site is ready.  Here you will find the platform of intent and invite, we are open for business and as Self Discovery Media merges with the community sites, it will be easier to find those wonderful Mentors with their services, and our inspiring guests who share their Why with us on their extraordinary life journeys.


So come to now and see what we are offering, and this will get switched over to Discovering HOPEFULLy by May.

Discover The New Revolution in Community-Based eLearning and Marketing Solutions for Coaches, Consultants, Authors, Podcasters, Publishers and Mastermind Groups.

Traditional eLearning and Coaching Systems are non-interactive and too rigid for the busy and distracting lifestyles of today’s students and clients.

We have struggled with providing clients with even a basic business system without having to subscribe to numerous unrelated software platforms. Because there is no simple, central way to manage all of these different implementations, it quickly becomes a tangled web of cobbled-together plugins, workarounds, and synchronizations.

Today the doors to membership have opened and I’m so excited to start helping all our new members achieve focus and growth and 2021.

If you’re an online entrepreneur, coach, consultant or author trying to find your best buyers and produce results with not a lot of effort then you’re going to want to check this out.

Evolve Systems Group Pty Ltd  ABN: 51098121343  | PO Box 327 | Stanhope Gardens NSW Australia 2768 | 1300 889 383

Here is an example of what a typical entrepreneur needs in their business system to be successful in today’s highly-competitive marketplace:

  1. A great mobile-ready website that tightly integrates your podcast channel and blogs.
  2. Ability to email your subscribers when new content is available, such as your latest podcast.
  3. Create a highly-engaged community for your clients and prospects that can give them extra value behind a secure login.
  4. The ability for your visitors to buy your products/services on the same site and handle the delivery on whether to serve up a download or ship a physical product. Also, you may wish to have multiple payment gateways, such as Stripe and PayPal.
  5. They all end up in your back-end membership area, which includes all their invoices, downloads and bonus content. No fumbling around with separate websites and different logins!
  6. Ability to create a recurring membership system where you can charge them monthly, yearly, etc. 
  7. Courses where your members can learn online at their own pace. A course system allows them to progress as they do each lesson, not necessarily on a weekly release schedule where they could easily get behind and give up.
  8. What about assigning tasks and quizzes to your course? No longer do they need to download a worksheet PDF they never actually complete. You can see all their answers, which means you also know where they are at in the course schedule.  No one is left behind!
  9. This means you can also coach them based on their task list.
  10. Then, of course, you may want different front-end websites but don’t want to have them all operate in their own ecosystem. With Evolvepreneur, you can have as many front-end sites as you like and they all can lead back to one single back end community, meaning they are all a part of the same ecosystem.  
  11. What about a powerful analytics reporting system so you can see exactly where your web traffic is coming from and what they’re clicking on?
  12. single dashboard to run your business, know your marketing numbers, create content and manage your business.
  13. A business procedure system so your staff and outsourcers can run your processes the same way every time.
  14. A Customer Service system including a ticket system to track and ensure all your customers are provided quality service.
  15. Create an easy system for your referrers or affiliates to share your products and services and be rewarded.
  16. What if you wanted to create a mastermind group? Evolvepreneur has the ability to group people together and map out a logical progression and access to Q&A calls, group tasks, and results.
  17. A Marketing Module to trigger emails or actions based on your prospect’s behavior, as well as help them progress through your courses.
  18. project management system to help you and your team manage your own projects.

How long to do you think this would take to implement? Maybe a year! We have been there. It’s not easy, and we would probably have been forced to use 4-5 systems just to manage all of these different features.

But this is the vision for Evolvepreneur. In as little as 90 days, you will have a fully functional business system that would normally have taken years to create.

Gina Gardiner

Imagine being paralyzed and having the strength and determination to come back from this, learning to walk again as an adult – twice and still achieve the top accolades of your profession. Gina Gardiner’s own story is one of powerful transformation. Genuinely-You Ltd is Gina’s business, providing compelling coaching and training. Her wide range of clients learn to be their genuine selves in work and life and to lead happier, more successful, more fulfilling lives.

Gina is bringing enlightened attitudes and behaviours to the topic of leadership. The Enlightened Leadership Programme provides the blueprint for achieving this soul-FULL leadership habit. Most leadership training is forgotten in a matter of months with delegates returning to habitual (bad) behaviour – The Enlightened Leadership Programme will change this and enable you to work better, live better and lead better for the rest of your life.


Is it a time of happy families, a season of peace and goodwill or a time of an all-out war or siege where you are trapped under fire with the stepchildren or and the Mother In Law?  Do you look forward to holidays or are you of the “humbug” persuasion?”

The holidays become a pressure cooker of old disappointments caused by a year on year failure in trying to live up to the fairytale ideal of playing happy families with the husband or wife, the children, in-laws, the stepchildren …

The financial cost can be crippling. The emotional cost even more costly. All the work is often left to the same people who end up feeling frazzled, tired and taken for granted.

And if that isn’t enough there are holidays where there is an even greater sense of dread because finding, buying and wrapping presents that people will like on your budget seems impossible.

Then there is all the food shopping and catering. This is tricky as you don’t know if you are catering for the hoards or just the two of you because no one is making a decision and you don’t want to start a family row.

Add the fact that you are working and don’t have enough time to do everything normally. It is no wonder that people go into overwhelm!

Or perhaps you are dreading the holidays because you are facing them on your own and hate the thought of being lonely.

Whatever your situation in my FREE “12 Days Of Holidays Survival Guide”  I’ll be sharing with you the approach and techniques I use myself and with clients to help manage the family holidays whether they are Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Ramadanor  any other major family celebration.

So, if your whole holiday is taken up with shopping, cooking, hosting and clearing up. No sooner than you have the house straight it is time to go back to work. If you dread the family arguments, especially when these are fuelled by alcohol and close proximity.

If you find the pressure of  your children’s expectations for expensive presents difficult to manage. If you wonder how you are going to manage to pay the bills in January.

If in the past you find yourself under huge pressure and struggle with the workload the holidays with the family creates. If long after the holidays are over you are left struggling with disappointments, damaged relationships
and a shed load of debt.

It’s time to find a different way so you can look forward to enjoying the holidays.

I have recently created a complete 12 Day video guide and transcriptions to surviving the holidays and I want to give it to you completely free of charge as my special holiday gift.

Grab FREE Access to the 12 Days of Holidays Survival Guide

I hope you find it valuable and I look forward to hearing from you about your incredible holiday this year!

Together we will change the world.  As each person awakens we move the total consciousness forward.

On the Transformations Show, I will be interviewing people who are doing their part to change the world for the better. They are people who had the courage of their convictions, the drive within them to do what they know they came here on this planet to do and the passion to see it through.  They are not different from you and me, they are committed. My wish is they inspire you to follow what you came here to do.  This time it is not one person who will lead us into change, it is many of us, each doing our small or large part.  A quote from my book, “How Life Works, “When you act from your heart, you are standing in your full strength. The heart is the place of wisdom, honor and courage.”  This is the time to open our hearts and trust what is within us and share it generously with the world.

It has been a long journey to get to this show.  I have always known what I am talking about here but have not always trusted and followed it.  When Sara opened up the door for me to do it, I came back to myself. I have successfully coached people for about twenty-six years.  Since I have been an entrepreneur for that long I coach entrepreneurs, but it’s not only about business, it’s about our development as people and business is the route many people take.  But to be successful at anything you have to know who you are which is the purpose of coaching. The people you’ll be meeting on  Transformations shows have had their own journey which they will share.  Now it’s time for you to start your journey.

Dianne holds a Masters’ degree in Human Development with a specialty in counseling and coaching and has coached entrepreneurs for over 26 years.  She has trained entrepreneurs to pitch to investors and has run many pitch events.  She has had a radio show interviewing entrepreneurs for 5 years and writes a weekly blog, Success Thoughts Blog


Dianne J. Shaver, M.A. Business Coach
Focused on helping:
Startups                                                      Existing Business with Heart and Consciousness

My specialty is working with Entrepreneurs with Heart as well as an informed focus on the bottom line.  This is a time for consciousness in business.

I’ll help you prove that profit and heart work well together.  This is a time for innovative businesses that address global issues.  I’ve learned from interviewing people all over the world on my radio show, Transformations, that there are many successful businesses doing just that and the number are growing. I want to help you add your business to that list.

I work with businesses anywhere in the world via Zoom

She has worked with athletes, children, the elderly and persons from all walks of life and her patients benefit from her caring and dedicated manner.  Kiti and her team would like people to make them a top choice when it comes to caring giving, recovery and wellness needs.

She has served as president of the Bahamas Association of Physiotherapists for four years and currently represents the Bahamas at the World Confederation for Physical Therapy.
