Donna Sickinger understands the challenges of earning a pay cheque while working from home. Her first home-based business began in 1984 after the birth of her first son. Not wanting to leave her new baby, she continued to work on a per diem basis with the accounting firm that had employed her before she began her family. Desiring more freedom, she became a “solopreneur” in 1986 to meet her desire to combine a career with her growing family.
Becoming her own boss was a dream come true, allowing her to have it all, family and career. But she quickly discovered working from home offers its own set of challenges. So many things are calling for your time and attention that it can be hard to stay on task. Or you end up working too much because you live where you work! By trial and error she found ways to grow a business, raise four children, and still have a life, all within the same dwelling.
Over the years she has been recognized for her many accomplishments including a prestigious legacy award. As a celebrated leader in the direct sales industry, Donna is known for developing successful business strategies and coaching others to achieve their dreams. A graduate of the Coaches Training Institute, an ICF-accredited coaching program, Donna lives in Toronto with her family and spends a lot of time working in her pajamas.
