We had the good fortune of connecting with Toni Diamond-Bingham and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Toni, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
My saying is “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.”

It simply means: Change tour views on negative situations and look at the positive in it and focus on that. The outcome will change. Even if it doesn’t focus on the lesson learned.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have 2 companies: Rare Diamonds Performing Arts Studio Inc is my Non-Profit Organization geared toward providing voice, acting, instrumental, and dance lessons to those who Have hidden talents. We create a platform through Stage Plays, Musicals, recitals and so much more.

Toni’s Touch Seasonings, LLC just kind of fell in my lap accidentally. I cooked for some friends and they asked if I could bottle all of the seasonings I put in my food and sell it to them. It started off really small and is growing at a rapid pace. I have over 6 different seasonings; Chicken, Fish, Veggie, Beef, Taco and I also make my own pickles which is my Number 1 seller.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to see a Broadway show at the Times Union Theatre or Alhambra Dinner Theatre or Players By The Sea where I am an Active Board member there. I would take them to a nice Seafood Boil at The Rockin Crab and a nice steak at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. We would then take a trip to Orlando which is a little over an hour away to visit all of the Disney and Universal Studios Theme Parks and we would end with a nice ride to Brunswick GA to do some gambling on their Casino Boat.
