About the quote

This quote is from a 2017 Forbes Magazine interview conducted by Julian Mitchell The Art Of Being Self-Made: A Conversation With Diamond Platnumz.

In the interview, Diamond Platnumz opens up about his tough beginnings in Tandale, Dar es salam, Tanzania. He tells story of lack that culminating in him once having to sell his mother’s rings to book studio time.

Now kids, this is not meant to encourage you to sell your parents stuff in pursuit of your dreams; but it serves to lift the veil on rosy depictions of entrepreneurship common in this hustle era of the 21st century.

The truth is it’s often a wretched, downtrodden life for most parts when working to make your dreams come true.

By way of this quote, Diamond Platnumz gleams from his experience to caution entrepreneurs, hustlers and go-getters. Those who dare to dream and do should never let go of their vision, even when all seems lost. More importantly, he reminds us that entrepreneurship is a journey of gnawing self doubt.
