For the past 20 years, Dana Jewel Harris, Founder & Executive Director of The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Program, has been using her signature CIGS (Community Involvement Growth Strategy) Model as the perfect organizational tool to help small businesses develop business plans and revise their existing business models. Her foundation as a former military logistics specialist for the U.S. Army helped her become a successful strategic planner — securing millions of dollars for start-ups in the entertainment, real estate, restaurant, automotive services and urban agriculture industries. Now she uses this platform to teach kids how to become social entrepreneurs.
It’s that simple!
