When Diamond Fuse got a felony at age 19, she wasn’t sure she’d ever be able to make anything of her life. That is, until she learned how to take charge of her own destiny through the power of vision boards, positive affirmations, and manifestation. When she made her first vision board in 2012, she didn’t have enough money to fill up her gas tank. By 2016, Diamond owned her own home, had a college degree, and completed everything on her vision board.

“I am abundant,” is one of Diamond’s go-to positive affirmations. In this episode, you’ll learn how to cultivate abundance in your own life by achieving goals through action planning and nurturing a positive mindset. 

Diamond is the owner of Bizzy Babies, Kansas City’s #1 soft playground and bounce house rental company. Learn more at
