Donna Marie Sims

Donna Sims first encountered direct sales when she was only nineteen years old. A corporate district manager had recruited her while she was in college studying computer sciences.

“I did door-to-door sales whenever I wanted to make some extra money,” says Donna. “This was back when there were still plenty of people at home during the day.”

When Donna got married, she continued knocking on doors as a hobby and enjoyed it, but her husband was not supportive of her business.

In 1989 they moved to Illinois and Donna became a school cook. She loved her job and enjoyed it for more than a decade but in the week of September 11, 2001, she was hit with a triple personal crisis: her eldest son was sent to the Mideast on a dangerous military mission; she found out her mom was dying of cancer; and her new boss informed her she no longer had a job.

Donna’s whole world came crashing down and she became acutely depressed. A few days later, she received a call from her district manager, Linda.

Donna answered the call, and her life has never been the same. She recognized the opportunity of building a networking business and jumped in with both feet. Today she is well on her way to living the life of her dreams and she delights in showing others the rewards of owning a home-based business.
