The DIVA L.I.F.E.Programs

Our commitment to helping you reclaim control over L.I.F.E. – Love, Identity, Finances, Emotions – has inspired our focus on six areas in life which lay a foundation for a secure financial future. Our education programs are tailored around these six areas which direct you toward financial empowerment. Our programs respect your emotional journey through surviving and breaking free of domestic and financial abuse.

Lipstick Strategies for women in business or a partnership – giving you the right tools and resources at your disposal, to navigate through all legislative and mandatory duties you may not know or understand. We remove the concealer others use that do not often suit your future needs.
