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

Hi Donna, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important aspect of my success is to continue to create matcha beauty products that are verifiably making a difference in greater health and beauty, with natural and pure ingredients with matcha at its core.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My professional career in sales at A T & T and Mercedes Benz prepared for understanding consumer sales, meeting objectives and providing products to meet the needs of the customer. I learned No, simply means a need for more information. Perseverance and belief in your products are the hallmarks to success.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Arizona has so much to offer in the way of nature. I would start with drive to sun rise in Sedona for nature and relaxation prelude. Next, we would get our body engines going with a brisk hike, followed by a hot rock massage at Namti Spa to facilitate rejuvenation and relaxation. The day would end with a majestic view of the city at sunset at Elote Restaurant with Mexican food and margaritas.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband of 40 years, deserves credit for this 6 year journey. Not only was I able to finance my business with his help,I gave up a career in the airline industry of free travel to pursue my purpose to share matcha in my business. He believed in my vision and it has made a difference.
