We had the good fortune of connecting with Tawanda Sims and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tawanda, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
My mantra is: DoU! The “DoU” phrase means, doing what ever you need to do to make “it” happens. “DoU” means when you realize that other people’s opinion does not matter. “DoU” means doing something without the fear of judgment or rejection.

But as you build your brand or business, some naysayers will tell you: “it’s not even that serious” and others may call you an opportunist, decide to “DoU” anyway. It’s ok to marvel over someone else’s stuff but don’t get so caught up that you forget it’s about YOU!

“DoU” enough to do what others don’t, to get what others won’t.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

The Diamond Experience:

What I am most proud of is my international platform. I was chosen by Lay’s to be a national smiler. My smile appeared on potato chip bags across the world, Lay’s gives back to Operation Smile. So every bag sold with my smile was donated to OS. Lay’s raised over 1 million dollars.
