President and CEO. Consultant. Recruiter. Thought leader. Coach. Trainer. Champion for personal growth and a life of congruence… These words describe a woman with the personal drive to succeed – and a willingness to share that enthusiasm – like few others you will meet. Mindy started Diamond Consultants in 1998 with nothing more than a pad, pen and phone, working from the bedroom floor in her home. The business became a “third child” that she nurtured and developed into one of the leading consulting and recruiting firms for financial advisors in the country. Drawing from her own entrepreneurial experience, Mindy developed an organization that employs a unique relationship-driven approach that helps individuals and organizations achieve what she calls their “Best Business Life”. By counseling them on how to ask the right questions and “dig deep”, she and her team help individuals look at all of the opportunities available to them and find the one that allows them to reach their full potential and best serve their clients and live a life that is in sync with their own beliefs and values. In addition to her weekly Perspectives blog posts and active social media presence, she has shared her expertise since 2004 in a monthly column for Rep magazine called Career Moves, keeping the pulse on the industry’s latest recruiting and career trends. She is regularly quoted by leading national media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and CNBC, as well as industry publications including On Wall Street, Financial Advisor magazine, Investment News, and RIABiz. And her appearance schedule includes keynotes and panels at many of the industry’s top events, such as MarketCounsel Summit, Fidelity Executive Forum, Fidelity Investments Practice Management and Recruiters Summit, Pershing’s INSITE, InvestinWomen, and Women Advisors Forum. Her “How to Achieve Your Best Business Life” keynote is being further developed into a web site and a book. Among her accolades, she was named by NJBIZ magazine as one of New Jersey’s Best 50 Women in Business. The 1984 graduate from the George Washington University holds a Bachelor of Accountancy degree. Mindy strives to “unplug” from Diamond Consultants when she can (“this is the one thing I really need to work on”) and live her own Best Business Life, which includes spending quality time with her family, travel, reading and exercise. A lifelong learner, Mindy’s passion for excellence and desire to help others are qualities that many say are not learned, just part of her DNA. She shares more of her thoughts on living a life dedicated to personal growth and congruence in her Best Business Life blog, as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
