Diamond Life Producer

Our lives are shaped by the choices we make every single day. When I was 5 years old, I looked up at the sky and had my first conversation with God. At the time, I was not pleased with my living conditions, and it made me determined to work hard to create a better life for myself.  I simply said,  “God this isn’t for me. When I grow up I’m going to be somebody great. I am not meant to live in lack.” From that point on, I worked hard and made choices based on where I wanted my life to go. 


If I wanted to get out of poverty, I had to stay away from the wrong crowd, study hard, open myself up to different academic experiences, get my education and not get pregnant before my time.  This meant that I had to say “no” to anything or anybody that was going to keep me from living the “diamond” life of my dreams. 


In spite of it all, we rise, fall, live and we learn.  I started Optimal Living Magazine at the point of my own personal recession.  Producing Optimal Living has been a source of personal healing, growth and revelation on many levels.  I’ve shared life changing principles and stories that have propelled myself and thousands our precious readers forward, since 2008.  Along the way, I realized some things I would do differently financially, in relationships and in business, if I would have known what I know today.  Now, I am taking the gifts, talents, resources and life lessons God has given me to  launch my first podcast, “Diamond Life Producers”. Starting November 14th, tune in every Saturday at 3pm to discover new ways to create the diamond life of your dreams and how to protect it through the ups and downs of life @ bit.ly/diamondlifepodcast. 


Then, I cordially invite you to our "Diamond Life Virtual Tea" with me on a bi-monthly basis. I am SUPER excited to bless you all that will be forthcoming with both new events through Optimal Living Magazine.  Enjoy a free digital magazine and check out our new Diamond Life Monthly Planner Ebooks to get your mind right and prepared for the year ahead. 


Loving you always,
