We had the good fortune of connecting with Diamond Freeman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Diamond, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I started my own business to better my life. I do believe that you are able to make money by working for people but you don’t necessarily have proper financial stability depending on the job and you also don’t have the right to tell them what days you want off of work. I enjoy working for myself because I make my own hours and I get to travel when I want all the time.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I started TieraaMINKS because I was always interested in make up I’ve always had a passion for make up and I’ve always love make up so I started doing eyelash extensions and from there I branched off and I now attend Paul Mitchell the school ESANI Where I am in the aesthetician program so I get to work more with skin make up body waxing and so much more
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My favorite spots in the city would have to be the rooftop at Ponce City Market . It’s a family oriented place but it could also be a date night place is very nice there’s music there is games, food and after a certain time is for adults only
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shout out my mentor Miss Shantel . I remember when I worked for her at a daycare and on my last day there she gave me a journal. Now looking at this journal I just knew I would never write in this journal. But one day I started writing in his journal all of my life goals all of my dreams everything that I wanted to accomplish and slowly but surely I was able to accomplish goals and mark off things that I wrote in my journal and I tell the story all the time because who would have to be writing in a journal would have helped me this far.
