About Us



"We already had a business idea formed, but didn't know how to take the practical steps to execute our start-up idea. Dana consulted with us on all aspects of creating the entity, and getting it launched, from overseeing the marketing plan, to advising on the website, and she performs all the bookkeeping so we can track our investment and have GAAP-compliant financial statements.  Her knowledge, excellent planning skills, and results-driven approach have made Best From The Diamond's business plan a reality." 

-Robert Veeck, Best From The Diamond- 

"While Dana Kelly was employed at RKO, not only did she effectively run our business office, and handle all the bookkeeping, budgeting and general business affairs, but she took on a special project to convert the old accounting system to a software program better suited to RKO's reporting needs.  As a result, we have better management reports, that give us more relevant financial information, and the finance office operations were greatly streamlined." 

-Ted Hartley, Chairman, RKO Pictures- 

"Dana advised us on many general business affairs that are pertinent to starting, and running a business, and helped shape a plan to start the publishing business. She also provides us with all the necessary financial reporting." 

-Alice Jagger-Modrich, Best From The Diamond-
