App entrepreneur Diana Liberto appears on TUTV

Your Best Life: Diana Liberto

Your Best Life: Diana Liberto

On a new episode of Your Best Life with Lisa, Lisa Bien talks to Diana Liberto, who went from suffering from severe depression and PTSD to becoming an innovator and living her best life.

Diana was a successful lawyer when her father, mother, and uncle all died suddenly and tragically within a short period of time. In an attempt to face her monumental losses, she hired a personal trainer and found that making conversation with her trainer gave her relief. She realized that “walking and talking” was the perfect way to mourn and work through her issues. However, she also knew that most women can’t afford a personal trainer, so she developed an app to provide a similar regimen to what had worked for her. She quit her well-paying job and launched the WalkMyMind app.

Watch the premiere of this episode on Monday, December 2 at 12:30 and 8:30 p.m. to find out more about Diana and her app.
