MEET THE DIAMONDS

The-Diamond-Family

When people ask us what we do for a living. We tell Them:

"We are pursuing our dreams of becoming full-time entrepreneurs and sharing our steps and struggles along the way "

But what we really want to say is: 

"We show people how to make additional income on a part-time basis in order to live their dreams out loud."

And what we really, really want to say is...

We read tons of personal development books, (here's a list of our favorite reads, we read to keep our mind right as well to keep growing), watch Live stream TV on our downtime, write educational blog posts while baking and eating delicious Legacy Cakery cupcakes...because we believe the more knowledge we pour into our work, the more we can give back."

Through this platform, we want to inspire, educate and empower other by sharing our experiences as well the experiences of others who are doing amazing things in their industry, in hopes that it will motivate and encourage others to dream big, reach for the stars and follow your genius. Most importantly, we want to provide our readers with helpful tips and information on how to achieve your goals, improve your mindset, build a legacy and live your dream out loud while showing our boys that you can have fun while following your vision. As Darren Hardy says entrepreneurship is a roller coaster. Some days, months and even years will be groundbreaking through the roof amazing while others times it won’t be so hot and you will feel like quitting. The fantabulous part is we believe in this process and ourselves!!  So welcome everyone and we hope you enjoyed our post as we are pumped and strapped in for the long run.
