My Life in 4 Chapters
Diana Bishop is someone who has reinvented herself again and again over the last 60 odd years.
Since 2002, Diana has been running a unique personal branding and communications business called The Success Story Program™ where she has helped create success stories for everyone from executives and entrepreneurs, to politicians, scientists, and ballet dancers.
In 2017 Diana wrote her own story, a deeply personal memoir called Living Up to a Legend, My Adventures with Billy Bishop’s Ghost --- which explores the profound impact that her famous grandfather, World War One Flying Ace, Billy Bishop has had on her life.
Then in 2018, Diana started her passion project, a popular blog and website called Woman of a Certain Age in Paris.com where she gets to visit and write about the City of Light and where she is building a community of followers around the world who love Paris and all things French.
In fact, Diana believes we all have Four Chapters in our lives, and that now as a "woman of a certain age” in her Fourth Chapter, she is living the best chapter of all!
