TO SCHEDULE DANA THOMAS FOR SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS, SEMINARS, OR CONSULTING
While working as a Business Banker, Dana Thomas heard a speaker give a message that questioned and challenged her life's legacy.
To summarize the message: Other than family and close friends, no one really cares about the events surrounding day you were born or the day you die. When your eulogy is delivered (and family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances speak), they will talk about your life and everything that happened in between those dates: YOUR dash.
Dana could not get this message out of her mind....She was a top producer in a male dominated field. She had achieved vice president status, money in the bank, investments, social status, and security. She had finally achieved her dream (and had accomplished it in record time)... but what was her legacy? Other than money in the bank, a nice home, car, etc. what wash her contribution to her community? What would live after her death and she was no longer here? What was her dash?
She decided to take her love for youth to the next level. Youth were especially close to her heart because this group felt the most entitled, was to the most misunderstood, and hence 'left alone', when they needed the most guidance. This was the group with the most potential, energy and time to make lasting changes.
The vision included more than just giving youth "a fish", but "teaching them how to fish"... She envisioned teaching one, and empowering them to teach another, who would teach another ... who would then, teach another.... until an entire generation was transformed in their thinking and strategies for success. So Mye-Dash was born; to encourage others to begin working on 'their' dash.

"The possibility for success is always within your reach, YOU must make the effort to PLAN for it and PURSUE it ." -- Dana Thomas
