DON & ANGELA THOMPSON
"After graduating from college, we knew that being employees was not for us. We immediately started our first business, a retail store in Perrysburg, Ohio. We invested a large sum and accumulated even more than that in debt. Angela’s degree was in education, so she went to work as a teacher at a preschool to earn additional income.
In 1996, Angela’s brother sent us a video tape featuring PPLSI’s top income earner, Dave Savula. As business owners, we knew of several times we could have used this service in our own lives, plus, the idea of earning an additional income really appealed to us! We were working our retail business seven days a week, many times putting in 12-hour days, and Angela was also working.
This opportunity became our passion, and 19 months after starting, we sold our retail business to focus fully on our PPLSI business! About a year later, our business gave Angela the opportunity to stop being a teacher and focus on being a mom. We worked in Ohio for the next four years, building a great team and learning from some great leaders. In 2001, we decided to move to South Florida.
We have two boys, Matthew and David, and because of PPLSI, we have been there for them from day one! We have been able to spend both quantity and quality time with them growing up! Matthew is a graduate of Florida State University and in 2022, David will graduate from the University of Notre Dame.
Today, we have a beautiful home on a little island in Southwest Florida. We are able to wake up every day, see the sun rise over the water and truly experience life. We enjoy going fishing offshore, kayaking around the island and going out to watch the dolphins at sunset. The life we have today is exactly what we envisioned.
We focus on every aspect of the PPLSI opportunity. We work in the small business market, helping small business owners protect and grow their businesses. We strongly believe in the group marketing division and have personally enrolled more than 7,000 members. But our main focus and love is team building and helping our associates achieve their dreams. We love the concept of leverage and residual income. Every day we get to help associates on the team achieve their goals and dreams. After 25 years, we believe the best is yet to come! We are part of building an industry and a legacy that will set up future generations for massive success. The key is to make a decision that YOU will be part of this journey!
