Web3Diane Carroll_8233Meet Diane Carroll   

Founder of Maverick Center and Co-founder of the Catalystz™  process. Entrepreneur since 1985. Speaker. Author of  Create the Business Breakthrough You Want. Do-GooderVisionary.

She is formally trained with a degree in business and has also studied entrepreneurship, start-up failure, start-up success, how to match business (or work) to a person, business consulting, transitions between work, and business mergers & acquisitions. She is also educated in hospice and pre-marital counseling, cooking from scratch, indigenous grandmother wisdom, forensics bookkeeping, and prepping youth to take over their lives.

Not only a visionary, she is a visionary ‘bridge’ for hundreds of others. She is a ‘practical’ visionary though, meaning she can teach the delicate cross over between a visionary idea and the real world (and even help you to discern your vision). She has also recieved the Rotary Paul Harris Fellow Award and is well-known for her hard work, generosity, and service-above-self work.

Diane lives in the North Carolina but hails Austin, Southern California, and Chicago as places she has lived and loved. She is married with two kids and two granddaughters.
