My daily ritual includes ...
Waking up with my beautiful daughters, Lulu Jack and Poppy Rae, and seeing their bright smiles. I always end my day with bedtime songs and lots of hugs.
I am grateful ...
To work with my family everyday. It's very rare to run a business with your brother and sister and still call them your best friends.
I wish more people could feel ...
Happy about what they do for a living. If you're going to work hard, make sure you're doing what you love.
My favorite way to give includes ...
Mentoring women who want to become entrepreneurs in any industry. As a young entrepreneur, I never felt like I had the support of the women who paved the way. I hope to give back by being a sounding board and support for woman taking risks in their careers.
If I could walk someone else's path, it would have to be ...
My dad's. He was born in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and came from nothing but made such an incredible life for my family.
My favorite term of endearment is ...
D2, my nickname from my nieces.
The easiest way to connect with others is ...
Sadly via text. My life is run via text message and while it's not as personal as I would like, with a busy schedule, it's my lifeline to stay in touch.
The biggest misconception about fashion designers is ...
That my day is all glamour. I don't get to play with jewels all day, but I certainly work hard while wearing gorgeous baubles.
When I think sustainability, I imagine ...
Consistency. I always want to be true to myself and my brand. There are ups and downs in every business, but Dana Rebecca Designs will always represent strong, amazing women.
My biggest truth is ...
Being a woman and mother. Women are the future. I am so thankful to have a business that mentors and supports women and that I am able to set an example for my girls as they grow up.
The intention I set for myself ...
Be honest and follow your gut.
… and for my company ...
Be a brand that inspires women and makes strides for other female entrepreneurs.
My personal passion is ...
Traveling the world and seeing the beauty of other cultures and communities.
One cause I wish everyone knew about is ...
Boys & Girls Club of America. It's an incredible organization that provides our youth with a safe haven during what is considered the most vulnerable time of day—after school. The organization offers a place for kids to reach their full potential in a safe environment.
