16 Life Lessons for Being Amazing – Jonathan’s Diamond Buyer

Life LessonsEvery day is a risk when you are running your own business. It doesn’t matter if you are buying diamonds or selling cars, you still have to put yourself out there and make money and support yourself, your family or both. I like to think I am one of those that have made it to the other side, but certainly not without a lot of blood sweat and tears.

I was a high school drop out and a teen father. I went to work and not to college. What I learned I have taught myself. I am a scrapper and there have been times I have been steps away from the streets and times that I have been steps away from millions, and through it all I have learned so many life lessons.

I have raised two sons to adulthood and like to think I have done a good job and my daughter is over halfway there and she is on the right path too. My marriage is strong and my business is doing well. I manage my life and my business the same way, with a firm hand and with a lot of faith in God.
