Hey you!

I'm Dana

It's nice to meet you

creativity is intelligence having fun

I've always been that creative person...

You know, the one who was always picked last for sports, but always picked first to be the lead in the school play? Well, that was me, my friends! (Seriously, nobody wanted me on their team in gym class). Growing up, I spent all my time writing, reading and trying my hand at anything creative.

So it makes sense that when it came time for me to settle into some kind of career, I chose the most creative option I could and got my Bachelor of Business with a major in Marketing. I've spent over 10 years working in marketing and I wouldn't have it any other way. Originally from Canada, I'm a full-time blogger & content marketer who now lives all over Europe (currently working from Frankfurt) with my professional-hockey-playing-husband.

Dana Nicole Designs Inc. was born when my husband got transferred overseas and I needed to create something meaningful for myself. After teaching myself graphic design, I worked as a freelance designer but quickly fell in love with social media and content marketing.

I started my business from my kitchen table, bootstrapping it by working long days and nights, and have now been featured by some of the largest publications in online marketing such as Tailwind, Social Media Examiner and Blogging Wizard.

Now, I am lucky enough to help thousands of small business owners understand online marketing through this blog you're currently reading and the free trainings and workshops I hold. And the best part? A portion of proceeds earned from the ads on my website gets donated straight back to animal shelters who need help finding dogs and cats their furever homes!
