PlanNet Marketing congratulates new One-Star Director Diahn-Maria Ellis! Diahn tells us, “I am blessed to be born and raised in the beautiful sunshine island of Jamaica and 30 plus years later, I still reside here. I truly enjoy spending time with my family, especially my three- and six-year-old boys. The little things are important to me, travelling with them, getting ice cream, watching movies…as long as it is with them. Being a true foodie, I love experiencing new foods and new restaurants – as long as it looks good and smells good, I’ll try it!

Most of my travel experience is visiting family in the United States and Canada. I started travelling at the age of four and I have always loved it. My passion for the travel industry really manifested when I was given the opportunity to work with Air Jamaica and Sandals Resorts. Because of this, we did many “staycations” in luxury resorts right here in Jamaica. As a matter of fact, I was always moving to different parts of the island. I couldn’t keep still! To top off my need to move all about, this business has made me start to write a very lengthy list of places to visit!

“My PlanNet Marketing success comes from the 4Cs - be Coachable, be Consistent, be Confident, and be your own very best Cheerleader. If you want something badly enough, absolutely nothing or no one can or will stop you. Know that the people closest to you may not support you, but that doesn’t mean that you should stop. It’s those very same people who will come around and wonder why they didn’t believe in you in the first place. Step out of your shell and go for it. Always remember your why! Always!

“I ranked up and achieved success pretty quickly because I don’t stop. When I am tired, I keep going, when I get sad or discouraged, I snap out of it quickly and keep going. In my journey so far, I have had personal obstacles that could have broken me, but I push through and keep going. Like Dory in ‘Finding Nemo’...Just Keep Swimming! Honestly, I never regarded myself as a mentor, coach, or in any position to really help people. Never thought I could be, but I have come to LOVE that I can help make a difference in people’s lives by introducing PlanNet Marketing to them. I want to and will help many more families realize their dreams.

A fun fact:I’m a redheaded introvert who is still a little nervous about talking to people (I’d rather write) and would prefer that others do the talking, but I am MAGICALLY at the ready to tell everyone about this opportunity!”
