Resetting Your Money Thermostat


In this week’s insightful episode of Quantum Revenue Expansion, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Diane de Mailly, the visionary CEO of DDM Metering Systems and a current member of the CEO Table. Diane candidly shared her serendipitous journey into the metering industry and imparted invaluable insights on recalibrating our relationship with money.

Throughout our conversation, Diane underscored the significance of pricing strategy, advocating for tuning into your visceral reactions to gauge if your rates truly reflect your worth. Her emphasis on resilience struck a chord, as she encouraged listeners to diversify revenue streams and persevere through adversity.

One of the highlights of our discussion was Diane’s advocacy for seeking coaching and strategic guidance early in one’s entrepreneurial journey. She highlighted the transformative power of mentorship and its ability to accelerate growth and overcome challenges.

Moreover, Diane championed the liberation afforded by embracing virtual business models, extolling the virtues of leveraging technology for global connectivity and autonomy.

Episode #290,  “Resetting Your Money Thermostat”, encapsulates actionable wisdom, urging you to trust their instincts, explore new avenues, and persist on your path to prosperity.
