Although Presidential Silver Ambassadors Donna and Arnold Simkus of Warren, MI, began their Reliv journeys separately, their paths have led them to the same place. And they love where they are.
Donna was introduced to Reliv in the spring of 1993. As a single mom, she was struggling to make ends meet. “After 30 years as a flight attendant, I had no idea there could be such an exciting business opportunity for me,” she says. “Now the pension it took over 30 years to earn doesn’t even cover my Relìv taxes. I still travel a lot, but I do it sitting down and not standing in the aisle.”
Arnold, a former NFL defensive lineman, began taking Reliv in 2001 to help with his arthritis. He had also recently lost his wife of 33 years and been let go (for the second time) from a corporate IT position. “It was a dark time for me,” he admits. “Looking ahead, I couldn’t imagine any light in my future. Then Reliv came along and gave me the tools to reclaim what I had lost—my health, my career and even a wife.”
Arnold joined Reliv as part of Donna’s second generation downline. After getting to know each other through Reliv trainings at Donna’s house, the pair hit off, fell in love and were married in 2004. Now they work together helping other people improve their lives. “I’m working harder now than I ever have in my Reliv career and loving it!” Donna says.
Their lifestyle provides them the freedom to spend time with their three daughters and extended family, and to enjoy all that they have built together. Among other future endeavors, Donna and Arnold plan to load up a motor home and take off for as long as they want to. “And we’ll be bringing our Reliv business with us,” they say.
“We love what we do. We have a wonderful life.”
