After reading the book ACRES OF DIAMONDS by Russell Conwell, I am convinced we are all leaving the diamond mines in our own back yards as we travel around the world looking for larger diamonds, when in fact the diamonds we seek are found within us and our hometown, from whence we came. Therefore, we are calling the podcast, #IAMRIVIERABEACH. #RIVIERABEACHPRIDE
Our vision is to shed a bright light on the wonderful, smart, talented individuals from our great City, Riviera Beach, Florida.
