Deep Understanding of High-Performing Leaders
You’re a business owner or an experienced professional with five or more years in your field. Maybe you’ve never had to look for a job before or ask for a promotion. But the game at the top is changing. You don’t have time for trial and error at this point in your career. You’re tired of feeling out of control because you’re always chasing new clients or hustling to make ends meet. You realize it’s time to claim your expertise and earn what you’re worth. You’re tired of cookie-cutter career advice that doesn’t honor YOU and your uniqueness. You want to work with someone who understands what’s at stake and has proven, step-by-step systems. You’re ready for success – getting the recognition and respect you deserve, letting go of perfectionism and overwhelm.
Real World Business Experience
With real world experience as an award-winning executive my coaching is not just theoretical. I have worked on both sides of the desk as a business coach and as an executive.
My success as a sales and marketing VP led others to ask me to train and coach their sales teams. And often, to advise them about career changes and starting their own businesses.
During the 10 years I did this as a management consultant, I received formal training as a coach. I am now six times certified in coaching methodologies from executive branding to mediation.
Progressive, World-Class Coaching
Consulting and coaching for over a decade, with a wide range of women and men from around the globe, means I get to work with people of all backgrounds, not just those from mainstream culture.
This range of experience allows me to provide a unique plan for each individual client instead of using a one-size fits all approach. As a woman of Brazilian descent who is not from a mainstream background, that’s pretty cool.
But don’t take my word for it. See what my clients have to say in my Reviews.
If you’re ready to feel excited that you’re making money in a lucrative career or a business that lights you up, let’s talk about how to make that happen for you
Why? I know what it takes to make a smooth career transition. I've been there.
I know what it takes to make a leap to a better paying job or to running your own business.
I’ve done it myself and for hundreds of other coaches, therapists, managers, VPs, and CXOs.
I also know what it’s like to be stuck.
As a child of a Brazilian single mom with no economic stability, I know what it’s like to be trapped by negative circumstances.
That drove me to learn how to overcome the odds.
I used what I learned to reinvent myself a few times and become an adaptive leader.
When I was a well-paid but unhappy marketing VP, I felt like Tom Hanks in the opening scene of Joe and The Volcano. I was one of the grey, corporate zombies shuffling off to work in a herd of other corporate zombies.
That mindless existence of overworking and running from one crisis to the another was the motivation I needed to leave behind climbing the corporate ladder.
Changing careers, I launched management consulting practice at FTI Consulting. As part of the C-suite team, we grew that business through a successful IPO.
It was an exciting time to work in the legal industry. We were nationally recognized for improving diversity, in part, with an award-winning video I wrote and produced. We were changing hourly billing at law firms with the DuPont Legal Model. And I had an inside peek at landmark cases including the OJ Simpson trial and consumer protection cases like Teflon® and Benlate.
Business Strategist & Career Advisor
Today, I am a sought-after business strategist and career advisor. 6-figure and 7-figure business owners and executive leaders say they choose to work with me because I understand what it takes to be an adaptive leader–how to go from being stuck to stellar.

They also know I am committed to your advancement without compromising your health, losing your sanity, or running up your credit cards.
No one should have to go it alone. When you work with me, you’ll not only have access to me and my exciting digital training, you’ll have my team of experts. They’re here to improve your executive branding, marketing, wealth consciousness, business writing, and leadership skills.

why work with Me, Dana mayer, as your executive career coACH?
Dana provides personal attention.
If you want to work with someone who gets your values, your situation, and does not run you through some generic program, Dana is the mentor for you. Sure, she uses assessments and apps like other coaching companies do. But you’re never handed off to a junior coach with no actual business experience that is just reading to you from a script. The best part about working with her is the human touch, her personal attention.
