1- What’s Diamonique story? How would your friends and family have described you?
I’m Diamonique 27 years old living in Miami Fl. I have 1 son name Zion he’s 4 . And have 1 sister. I like to travel anywhere literally. My family and friends would describe me as the helpful one. I have given all my family jobs in my business. Some haven’t worked a job in years. And even the ones who are unable to work I make sure I help them at least once a month.
2- As an entrepreneur, what is it that motivates and drives you?
As an entrepreneur my son motivates me and being able to take him places he’s never been and moving him into a house where he doesn’t have to move every few months and has something to call ours as a family is what drives me
3- Who inspires you? And what makes your business different and appealing to clients?
I started Airbnb when I was about 20. I was ripped off over 20 thousand by someone promising to give me an investment property and ever since then I have worked and learned the game to gain multiple properties within Miami Florida. I make every stay with me feel like you’re at home you don’t have to get anything. I want you to leave knowing you stayed in a top-of-the-line Airbnb. I am now helping others become 6 figure earners in Airbnb. And learn everything I learned so they don’t make the mistakes I have made. I am now to go to a realtor for anyone looking for investment properties in Florida. Florida is one of the hottest spots to have an Airbnb and I want people to remember Florida and me when they think of investment properties.
4- What would you say are the main elements for starting and running a successful business?
The main element of running a business is Consistency. And reading. Once I learned that being consistent helps grow the business I make sure I’m consistent and precise with everything I do. Also, most information is in books, not videos not podcasts. Everything they don’t want us to know is in books.
5- Describe the 3 biggest challenges you faced during the life of your business journey
I have been kicked out of multiple properties because I never knew how to pitch a landlord. I have lost so much money because I didn’t have any financial literacy
And I have lost deals because I wasn’t consistent.
6- How did you make a name for yourself in your industry?
I grew a new starting with Airbnb and everybody already knew me as the girl who got all the Airbnb in Miami. But I wanted to be more than that I wanted to be the girl everybody buys the Airbnbs from so I become a realtor and started selling investment properties.
7- If you had one piece of advice for someone just starting out, what would it be?
If I had one piece of advice it will be to stay consistent don’t stop. Numbers might not add up in 1 or 2 months but keep pushing threw stay focused lock in for at least 6 months and stay consistent if you want to see results.
9- If you were to start from zero again, what would you do differently?
If I started from zero I would definitely manage my money better.
10- What drives you to keep going when it gets really tough and any final words?
When it gets really tuff like my mom always says keep going. Don’t stop when it gets stuff is when you work the most. Most people don’t make it past the getting tough stage. But I make sure I never stay in that position.
