Jamar Diggs

Founder / Business + Social Media Strategist - J Diggs Media

I'm a business + social media strategist for coaches and consultants. I help them use social media to attract high-paying clients who charge their batteries instead of drain them.

What inspired you to start your business?

I noticed there were a lot of misconceptions about social media out there that would cause entrepreneurs to become the bottleneck in their own business. I wanted to teach everything I've learned from the corporate marketing world so they can know what strategies on social media actually move the needle in their business.

What is something you would say to someone who is struggling in their first few years of business? Is there something you struggled with and learned from in those first few years?

You can't do it all on your own. Find a collective of other entrepreneurs you love to be around. As you are around other creative entrepreneurs you'll start getting motivated to keep going. You'll also able to lift each other up because there will always be a time where you'll want to give up, but your tribe helps you remember why you should keep going.

What hobbies, causes, or activities are you passionate about aside from your work?

I love being active so doing Crossfit and bootcamp classes with my gym mafia are super important to me. I'm a huge advocate for normalizing therapy in the African American community and protecting the civil rights of my fellow brothers and sisters in the LGBTQIA+ community.
