“Diane… more like “Diane-amo!” Okay, so it’s a horrible and cheap pun. But you have to search pretty far and wide to find someone with more energy and passion than Diane Carter. Diane will always be successful because she understands that success isn’t something that just happens or something that is the result of a one-off effort, rather she knows that to be more you simply have to DO more.
When I met her, she was hosting and organizing networking events, all the while building her own business, and looking for new business ideas and partnerships. And she just flat has fun doing it. That’s Diane!”
Jared Chambers (JAC)

Diane is the epitome of “professional”…skilled, creative, and most importantly, she does what she says she’s going to do.
Renae Bolton, Marketing4Realtors.com
Diane is one of the most creative and skilled individuals who I’ve ever worked with on my products. She took something that was good and made it great! The quality of her work turns a product into a professional looking document. I am very glad I crossed paths with Diane and would recommend her highly to anyone looking for some professional design work and a highly creative mind.
Cheryl Vallejos, CPBA, CPVA,Certified Business Coach and Consultant
I referred Diane to a client for a branding package. My client was unsure what he wanted in a logo but had a vague idea. Diane was able to take what he thought he wanted and turn it into a logo that my client loves! Not only that, it was completely unlike anything we had seen – unique and original. She gave timetables that she stuck to and put forth more than the 100% in effort we expected. Diane is the epitome of “professional”…skilled, creative, and most importantly, she does what she says she’s going to do. I have since referred her to other clients and will continue to do so!
Renae Bolton, Marketing4Realtors.com, Lead Management Service
My ebook was beautifully and exquisitely created and designed by our very own Diane Carter from Sam101.com. She took my vision and created a lovely masterpiece that I am very proud of. She even put up with some “extra” stuff . Diane is a true professional and I highly recommend her as she was recommended to me!
Beverly Mahone, Best Selling Author
I learned of Diane and sam101 from a trusted mastermind member of mine. I had written my e-book and companion workbook and was now ready for my revised title and set up for publishing on my web site. I’m a great visionary who can get spread to thin and it was apparent when I started talking with Diane. From the moment I started talking with Diane I was at ease with that southern soothing infectious enthusiasm for my project. She is a great listener, great explorer of options and has a knack for choosing a book cover that reflects what I wanted without knowing what I wanted. On one project she gave me 5 choices for a book cover with the best for last. Diane is and will continue to be a valuable member of my success team and I fully endorse her to be that same valuable success for you.

She possesses excellent core skills including top line presentation preparation, negotiation acumen, time management and overall organizational skills. She is dependable and has her finger on the pulse of strategic daily operations, without losing her committed focus on big picture goals. The training materials provided by Diane were top quality and provided us with specific key messages to deliver to our customers.”
