The Diva Solopreneur. When life gets tough, it pleases the ear to say things like “keep going” or “don’t give up”. Kamaria T. Richmond proved that exercising those very actions are well worth it. After suffering a stroke in 2004, this diva chose to take control of her life and in turn, started an online radio show to inspire others.
The Stroke Diva Fabulous Show has been a journey to reinvent myself after a stroke in 2004. My radio show allows me to meet people that I would not be in a social setting online. The show lets me tell my story and interview the best & the brightest in social media.
Since inception, The Stroke Diva Fabulous Show connects various online personalities who discuss stroke education, spirituality, healthy living, lifestyle reinvention, entrepreneurship, travel and so much more. Learn more about this Mitchellville, MD resident in her Solopreneur Spotlight.
