Episode 349 DANA BOWLING – Finding Your Voice on Clubhouse and Being a Great Moderator

I met Dana on Clubhouse and was really impressed by the ease and style with which she conducts herself as a moderator and speaker in various rooms. She is completely comfortable in her skin and exudes an inviting confidence.

Dana Bowling is a business and motivational coach helping women gain confidence, take action, and show up & stand out on Instagram and Clubhouse. As a former Casting Director in LA, Dana has discovered talent for Disney, Nickelodeon, ABC, MTV, FOX and more. A mom to two young energetic boys, she truly understands what it’s like to build a business and show up consistently while balancing #momlife.

Her energy & vulnerability are contagious and you can always trust Dana to keep things real, making her the best biz bestie you’ll ever have. She is the host of the AMP It Up Podcast where she inspires women with tangible, actionable advice on how to show up, stand out, and start their businesses.

On Instagram @thisisdanabowling, you can find her coming in hot with Instagram & Reels tips and giving you daily motivation to succeed in both life and business. And when she’s not on Instagram, she is moderating on Clubhouse where she has gained over 5k followers in two months sharing advice and tips.
