When Dayna Steele
is on your podcast, she kindly sends you copies of her books. A cursory glance shows pages peppered with Gene Simmons, Sammy Hagar, Van Halen, and more. As a former rock DJ as well as a successful consultant, speaker, and author, she also knows a thing or two about getting things done today.
A master of career shifts, Steele took her work as a rock DJ and program director in Houston and successfully built a new career based on lessons learned from the business side of the rock industry. These lessons came to life in her first book, Rock to the Top
. Dayna also bootstrapped her way into a successful e-commerce business selling astronaut ice cream! (This is a story you can't miss.)
Her secret? Simply saying "yes" to opportunities — even those she didn't know how to do — and figuring the rest out later. Another lesson from a life in radio? Her work day is extremely structured much like the radio line-ups she used to program. She even assigns certain tasks to certain days, not unlike former guest John Jantsch's
"focus day" concept.
For shameless plugs Nick reminded listeners about his upcoming Social Strategy Boot Camp
stops in Madison (DJ will be there too), Davenport, and Omaha. With the promo code "worktalk" listeners can access special savings when they register. DJ plugged his popular email newsletter, the Waldow Social Weekly
(you've signed up already, right?), while Dayna gave a shout to eSigns
, her first national sponsor for the Your Daily Success Tip
Until next week, we'll see you on the Internet!
