Bestselling Author

I recently contributed a chapter to the #1 Bestseller, Show Your Work.

In my chapter, “Destined to Run,” I share my challenging journey from starting out as a young Latina in a border town with few opportunities, to running for and winning a seat in the Texas State House of Representatives. 

All royalties from this book are donated to the nonprofit foster youth organization CTX Table of Grace.

Second Time Bestselling Author

For the second time this year, I have had the pleasure of contributing a chapter to a special project. Going Places is a collection of amazing travel essays that emphasize the impact travel has on our self-awareness and our awareness of the world around us. Travel truly changes us.

All royalties from this book are donated to the nonprofit foster youth organization CTX Table of Grace.

Growing your Business with the Right Relationships

It’s Always the Right Time to Optimize 

Strong leaders know the best time to optimize is when things are already working. (A first-place runner doesn’t slow down to be closer to the pack; they push for a personal best.) If your business is topping out, it’s not time to coast; it’s time to get busy creating a new set point for success. 


Of course, if unexpected disruptions have foiled your best-laid plans, responding with agility  and precision is essential to course correction. 


As a strategy consultant, Diana Maldonado brings a fresh perspective and disciplined approach to help you define solutions unique to your business.
