Deep (Positive) Thoughts with Diana Steven

By | April 7, 2017

As the theme song to the classic TV sitcom Step By Step always told us, “We’ll make it better, the second time around.” Not that the first time was bad (I thought it went off without a hitch, especially for a couple of newbies), but better can always be bested here on the Bert Betterman Bettercast! Unfortunately the same can’t be said for TV theme songs…they just don’t make ’em like they used to.

In this episode we again welcome holistic health coach Diana Steven to talk about her practice, various thoughts on life, and a few big changes in hers. In case you missed the first episode, please do catch up by clicking the following words that turn into a magic link to the past. And if you’d like to check out Diana’s website, click on those previous magic link words. And in case you forgot what she looks like, here’s a reminder:
