My motto:
Do Better.

It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, mentor, coach, hiring manager, business executive or group leader, we've all been there . . . . waiting for the right time, place and opportunity to make something great happen only to be unaware and unprepared to take full advantage of it when the perfect situation arises.

It's heartbreaking!

That's why it's been my job is to get dreamers and dream-makers like you ready for the next opportunity that comes.

Meet Dana Jewel Harris

From serving in the U.S. Army Reserves to serving as CEO & Executive Director of The NEXT Steps Small Business Incubator & Youth Entrepreneur Program, my mission has always been to provide others with the tools and opportunities they need to achieve the level of growth they desire.
