My name is ... Diana Riley

Mary Kay consultant has background in cable

About me

I moved to Colorado 25 years ago, although I fell in love with Colorado two years earlier. I believe in the power of affirmative thinking, so I spent two years trying to convince my company that they needed to relocate me to Colorado. Back then Denver was the cable capital of the world, and I worked for a large cable company, so they eventually relented and I have loved every minute I've lived here.

Two separate lives

After more than two decades working in the cable industry, which I really enjoyed, I decided to try my hand at a business that was a little less stressful, and would make people happy, so I left the industry and started my own business as a Mary Kay consultant. I have met so many wonderful people and helped so many women over the last 15 years, it was a great choice. I have made incredible friends here, and spend my free time playing golf, walking with my dog Herbee, or playing cards with my friends.

Make the world a better place

In my opinion, the world would be a better place if people would be happier and kinder to each other. I'm a big believer in the old saying that “if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.” I also believe that getting involved in your community is important. I joined the Parker Chamber 12 years ago, and it has been one of the best things I've done. It keeps me informed and involved in so many ways.

Influences in my life

Some of the best influences in my life have been people I initially met through work, who have become lifelong friends. Sally Silverside was my first boss, and she got me going when I was only 16. Nell Fenton and Tom Barbaugh have both become friends over the years, and my best friend Leslie Ellis. She has been a great friend for 35 years, and never lets me down.
