Meet Laura Diamond, Owner of Diamond and Gold Treasures!

Meet London’s positive ray of light, business owner Laura (Mah) Diamond, Owner of Diamond and Gold Treasures!

 

Can you tell me a bit about yourself and what your business is?

I am a shy person so I thought my job would be hiding in a office of some sort to do job.

My main focus is retailing fine jewellery in gold, silver, and diamond pieces. We also offer services such as repairs, cleaning, and appraisal certificates. Additionally, we carry unique gifts such as baskets, gourmet sauces as well as natural soaps and bath bombs.

How did you become an entrepreneur?

Becoming an entrepreneur was unplanned. I studied accounting and office administration. As I starting working various jobs, I just happened to stumble upon jewellery world and fell in love. The ability to create jewellery pieces and make new friends soon became my passion. I started to invest all my time to learn more and more. Once I gained the skills, I decided to give entrepreneurship a go. I opened a small business in Toronto, and then expanded myself to have a retail business right here in London, Ontario.  (L)ambeth

What is your favourite part about being an entrepreneur?

My favourite part is having the flexibility to plan my day, networking, and building new friendships.

What advice would you give to anyone else who wants to start a business?

As a business owner, you will always want to be hands on with every aspect of your business. My advice would be:

  1. Make sure you love what you do
  2. Find the right time management system that works for you so you can complete your tasks in manageable portions
  3. Success comes after some repeat failures. Don’t get discouraged!

Do you face any challenges in business and if so what do you do?

Yes I did but it made me learn more and be a stronger person.

Who is your inspiration?

Several people that I have met through my lifetime.  Some inspired me to do better and get out of my comfort zone.  Some taught me to be strong, creative and learn as much as possible.   It is all for my benefit in the end. I love it.

What do you hope for your business in the future?

I hope to be able to continue to have creative friendships, inspire others, and bring the community together through charitable events.

Trying, learning, creativity and be yourself.

Laura Mah (Diamond), Owner of Diamond and Gold Treasures in Lambeth, Ontario.
