Entrepreneur, Mentor, and CEO in the United States
Donna Maria is the voice of the American Made movement. After quitting her job as an attorney in a Fortune 500 company in 2000, she set out to launch her own cosmetics line. After realizing that she was much better at marketing than at creating products, she began to coach and consult with other small business owners.
In 2000, she launched Indie Business Network to provide business and success advice and resources to American Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs. Indie Business serves nearly 50,000 people around the world through websites, podcasts, newsletters, and social media outlets. A native of Washington, DC, Donna Maria currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her family. She can be reached at DonnaMaria.com.
