Dianna is a holistic business consultant and lifestyle planner. Her skills include accountancy, financial planning and personal empowerment coach. She specialises in business development, personal life-planning, farm succession planning, women’s mastermind group facilitation and workshop presentations.

Dianna Jacobsen comes from a background of wheat/sheep farming in the southern Riverina and now lives with her husband and two sons on their cattle property in beautiful North-East Victoria.

After finishing school, she commenced accounting in 1989 and later became a partner in a small public accounting practice. In 2005, concerned about the overwhelming compliance deadlines and demands that constantly challenged small business owners, Dianna left mainstream tax and accounting. She created Shine at Business to meet the growing, unmet need for pro-active, holistic business advice and strategic planning.

Dianna works with individuals, families, and businesses, in all aspects of lifestyle planning. This includes:

  • business development,
  • financial planning,
  • accounting and taxation,
  • administration,
  • compliance, time management,
  • life balance,
  • goal setting,
  • personal empowerment,
  • business dissolution.

She offers a personalised, customised approach to each situation, working in conjunction with other business advisers to develop a streamlined, integrated, and workable strategy.
