Today the Venice Paparazzi spotlight shines on PaleoBOSS Lady’s Diane “V” Capaldi
How many years in Venice? Moved to Venice in 2006. I have Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and my body does not do well in anything but perfect weather. Venice had perfect weather and perfect people when I arrived in 2006. I had been to Venice many times for work functions and feel in love years ago. Moving to Venice has been life changing.
Tell us about your company. PaleoBOSS Lady is a missionary style company not focused on making money. It’s main goal is to help others to find their miracle life. I travel all over the USA and have been for over 2 years helping anyone who reaches out to me. My work is free or donation based. I have an award winning blog and newsletter. With huge pride I was named #7 out of 50 Wellness Warriors changing how Americans think about health by Organic Authority. This is what my work is all about and I am humbled by this award. In addition I have won over 5 awards and in 2018 nominated for another 3. This means so much to me confirming I am exactly where I belong.
How long in business, and how did you get started? Since 2013 and I got started because as I was healing my body and looking for community so I started a Facebook page and it grew from there. Today I am a social media influencer sponsored by many brands.
What accomplishments are you most proud of? I am the most healed person in the world from Multiple Sclerosis using only diet and lifestyle. No drugs and no doctors. I used to take 24 pills a day and injections, had no use of both my hands, trouble swallowing, full time help and no feeling on the left side of my body. Today I live 100% symptom free. I am also aTEDx Speaker and most proud of this too. Here is my TED Talk: https://youtu.be/zessTA-Id1M

Future projects/Direction: I just started back to my award winning “Taking it to the Streets tour” in the new custom build BAM (Believe in a Miracle) van. I tour all over the USA sharing with others all I know about tapping your miracle life for free. All someone has to do is ask me and I will drive to you and share all I can to help others. I give talks, cooking classes as well as have an award winning blog and newsletter. My goal is to change healthcare in the world. I currently have 16 companies that support my work which is free or donation based making it 100% accessible to all.

Describe Venice: Venice in 2006 was a place where everyone knew your name and we all lived together as one. No matter what your story was it worked in Venice. Art, skateboarding and the boardwalk always set the stage for the Venice life. Today Venice is a tech driven community and uber hip.
Describe your perfect day in Venice: Beach bike ride to yoga, brunch at James Beach, a nap on the beach, stop by the skate park to see what is up, and then sunset drinks somewhere on the boardwalk followed by dinner at Gjelina.
