Dana Magnus is the owner and chief creative director at The MKTG Brand- a creative branding & marketing agency located in Chicago, Il.

Dana began her career running a marketing department for a 500-person transportation company with only an advertising degree and camera in hand. As a professional

After moving from Chicago to San Diego in 2014, she worked as a marketing director in the financial services industries, serving
entrepreneurs who worked with high-net worth clients to keep the visual branding and messaging present in all communication and took on individual clients who were in need of a “big picture” strategy approach to scaling their business.

With over 40 clients in the first 6 months of business, Dana builds her team of like-minded entrepreneurs who provide technical, design and marketing strategy work to serve clients in the responsible, green, eco-friendly marketplace. Thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators she works with share her values to create a more desirable future for the environment, a pro-active society, and boost the economy with honest, responsible business practices.

She has built several successful businesses and published 3 books that teach creatives to be successful in business including her best seller The Artful Marketer.

She believes that we are all creative and when we become disconnected from our inner creative fire, we lose sight of our passion and purpose.

She is not alone in these beliefs. Recent studies by IBM and World Economic Forum cite creativity as the single most important trait for today’s leaders yet only 1 in 4 people believe they are creative.

Minette helps women leaders to reconnect to their innate creativity so they can breathe new life into their purpose, passion and projects.
