Plans are nothing -- planning is everything.





If we are to be successful in reaching our goals and objectives, we must have an incentive which aids us in organizing our lives, and discarding the useless elements.
Through efficiency we adopt good habits in all areas of our lives. In the long run, good habits not only save time but improve the essence of the person.
Efficiency is the master key to true success. The difference between “what we are” and “what we could be” lies in our mental strength and capacity.

Her Story

Productivity Queen

What does it take to be an entrepreneur?

For Dana Reese, productivity strategist and Chief Executive Officer of The Buddy Effect, it means stepping out into the realm of uncertainty. “I was most apprehensive about losing my job security. I couldn’t afford to fail because I had two little ones depending on me,” says Reese.

As a former teenage mother who successfully put herself through both undergraduate and graduate programs, Reese attributes much of her success to the struggles that she had to endure. Often times, she worked two jobs at once while attending school full-time during her college days.  Reese understood the importance of a solid education, but also knew that it was her duty to provide for her daughters.

Prior to the inception of her business, this mother of two worked for a Fortune 50 company; however, in an unfortunate set of circumstances, Reese was laid off. Despite being offered an alternative position within the company, Reese decided that it was time to step out on faith and start her business – and in October 2017 she founded The Buddy Effect. She couldn’t have begun her business at a better time. Taking into account the ever-increasing demand of work from home jobs and flexible schedules, the virtual assistant industry is a booming one.

Reese describes her personal mission as being able to increase the productivity and efficiency of small businesses, being that small businesses account for 99.7% of all businesses in America. The vast majority of her clients consist of brand strategists, influencers, career coaches and small businesses. “I have always supported small businesses,” remarks Reese.

After enjoying the success of her first business, Dana Reese moved forward with her mission and is now a productivity strategist; she assists small business owners, influencers, coaches, and a host of others with staying organized, implementing time-management techniques, and overall increasing the efficiency in both their professional and personal lives.

Reese is on a mission to defy odds not only for herself and her daughters but for other dreamers that are on the brink of entrepreneurial success.

“Do not take advice from an employee,” Reese advises to entrepreneurs coming behind her. She recalls when she first started her business – close relatives didn’t understand her strong desire to become an entrepreneur. “If they’re used to thinking like an employee they’re not going to understand that you’re going into business for yourself,” responds Reese. She believes that it is of vital importance to surround yourself with like-minded people, as the journey of an entrepreneur requires hard work and determination. “If you want to launch your business hang around entrepreneurs,” says Reese.

Dana Reese is not stopping anytime soon — it’s only the beginning for this “Virtual She-E-O”.
