ERH: Today, I am thrilled to welcome Diane Darling. Diane is a pioneer in social networking – before Facebook and LinkedIn. In 2003, McGraw-Hill commissioned her to write the Network Survival Guide and went into the 2nd printing in just 90 days. Collectively, her books have been translated into seven languages. She has lived and worked all over the world. She taught at Harvard Business School, 20th Century Fox, Cisco Systems, and Bank of America to name a few clients. She has also appeared on NBC Nightly News and in The Wall Street Journal.
While Diane has taught me a lot about building relationships, and trust and the power of helping others, today we are here to talk about her new publication, “She Said It, A Collection of Quotes From Remarkable Women,” and it’s available on Kindle.
As you know, The Art of the Break is about breaking patterns in a positive way to do better work. At this time in our culture, it’s tremendously important to bring the voices of more brilliant women to the forefront. So, let’s do that together. Welcome, Diane.
Diane Darling: Thank you so much for having me.
ERH: How did you decide to publish She Said It?
Diane Darling: I love quotes and when I wrote my books, I wanted to have quotes at the beginning of every chapter. I find over and over again at conferences, particularly conferences for women that the quotes are still from men. I also find the references for books to read or biographies are men. I felt there needed to be a collection of quotes from women. I had a journal from a while back and noticed some interesting quotes and they were by women. I just started cutting and pasting and cutting and pasting and putting this book together.
“The more we’re moving, the better we’re feeling, the more focused, the more energized we generally are… It affects our digestion, it affects our brain focus, it affects everything.” Dr. Heidi Roberts
Heidi Roberts received her doctorate in physical therapy degree from Loma Linda University in southern California. And different from most PTs, she pursued an orthopedic physical therapy residency in Seattle.
Early on, Heidi recognized a tremendous lack of body awareness as an underlying cause of people’s pain. In 2012 she founded Motion Therapy, which enabled her to bring physical therapy, injury prevention, and wellness services to athletes, professionals, and businesses, enabling her to broaden the reach of this work.
In September, she published The Sitting Disease, which reached #1 At Amazon/Kindle in 8 categories! The more we’re moving, the better we’re feeling, the more focused, the more energized we generally are.

Despite being constantly connected, we are experiencing a loneliness epidemic (see HBR series here). Building real relationships is more important than ever. You can start where you work and Alex Brookings and team are doing things right at B.GOOD.
The lessons that Alex shares and my experiences as a customer stand out. These are things that you can practice with your teams in the way you treat the people you meet and interact with on a daily basis. One or two minutes can make the difference in someone’s day.
Alex is Director of Operations for B.GOOD restaurants in Maine and Vermont. He started his career in fine dining and thrives in places that emphasize the importance of working together. In 2013 he joined forces with colleague and friend William Zolper, opening a first B.GOOD location in Portland’s Old Port. Since, Brooking and Zolper have opened 2 more locations (South Portland and Burlington, Vermont), and look forward to adding more.
B.GOOD is a growing fast-casual franchise specializing in locally sourced ingredients and healthy menu options revolving around the growing season.

What do International Pro Basketball and Community Business Building have in common? Nik Caner-Medley.
You may know Nik Caner-Medley as a former star basketball player at Deering High School or the University of Maryland. Most recently, he has signed a 2-year contract with Movistar Estudiantes in Madrid Spain. What you may not know, is that Nik is a business and community-builder in Portland, Maine.
We recorded this show in the Boardroom at Cloudport Coworking Multi-space, while Nik is here for the summer. He is the owner and developer.
Co-working and multi-space environments have captured my attention as a business owner in recent years. The opportunities for greater collaboration in the community and improved blending of work and life are tremendous and inspiring.
In more than 20 years of office-working, this has been the most supportive and motivating environment I have experienced. There are better ways of working and I hope you enjoy the conversation.
