MUSICIANS & ACTORS:
I’m Diane Foy, and I believe that you really can make a living from your creative talents. As a publicist, podcaster, and coach, my purpose is to educate, motivate, and empower you to thrive in the arts with authenticity, creativity, and purpose.
In my 15 years’ in PUBLIC RELATIONS, I have secured international media coverage for hundreds of artists and performers. Although I have represented celebrities, I feel the most accomplished helping independent artists on their journey. After seeing many of my PR clients struggle to build a career in the arts, I was inspired to become a CERTIFIED COACH.
I can help you BUILD CONFIDENCE, GET KNOWN & ACHIEVE GOALS so that you can cultivate a thriving career in the arts, without feeling overwhelmed or doubting yourself. If you want to stop letting FEAR and a LACK OF KNOWLEDGE hold you back, I can empower you with strategies to propel you to the next level.
For artists and performers that are already thriving (or on their way), I offer PUBLICITY services to get the word out about your latest projects.
As creative artists, you have the power to change lives with your talent, and if you are driven to succeed, I can help you to ensure that the world gets to experience that power.
