More About Dayna Steele
Dayna Steele ruled the airwaves in Houston, Texas for almost two decades as the city's anointed "First Lady of Radio." With astronomical ratings shares and free concert tickets in hand, she spent her time traveling the globe and meeting rock stars and celebrities with her microphone in-hand. In 1996, Billboard Magazine nominated Steele as one of five Local Radio Personalities of the Year, the only woman in the category. Many were surprised when she moved on and successfully transitioned to the world of business. Steele created and sold a profitable e-commerce venture, started a marketing and public relations firm, and founded Smart Girls Rock, an online community for girls who will be the next leaders, scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. As her career evolved over the years from rock and roll air personality to successful entrepreneur, she could always trace it all back to the unique insights which she learned from the world's greatest rock stars.
Dayna Steele currently resides in Houston, in the state of Texas.

Steele steals the show with Rock to the Top Aug 3, 2008
Rock to the Top is a well thought out, quick read using radio and music analogies to illustrate a broad range of areas on how to be successful in business. From quality to organization, to technology to branding and publicity, Dayna covers it all. The summaries at the end of each chapter are helpful as well.
Some of Dayna's stories are quite amusing, but she always describes her rock star interviews and friendships with honesty and objectivity. Stars are human just like everyone else, and she deftly applies what she learned from her numerous encounters for the business reader.
I walked away with new tools (and some very good reminders-like always send a thank you note to the people who help you out) to use to market my book. Overall, I'd recommend Dayna's book to any entrepreneur or person working their way up through the ranks who enjoys rock 'n' roll!
Excellent Advice Jun 25, 2008
I've known Dayna for some time now, and even so, I never told her the story of the night Roger Glover of Deep Purple sat with me until 3am in a hotel lobby and told me everything that Dayna is telling you in this book! I was trying to make it as a woman in music business management, rock 'n roll end, and it was tough!! Thanks to Roger's great advice, I'm still able to do some good marketing and have a lot of fun ... in an entirely different area. To be succinct, everything he told me worked .. like a charm. Dayna is telling you exactly the same thing.
So, I have recommended Dayna's book to all young musicians I know. Everything she tells you in there is true and dead on. Read it, read it again, and then read it again and take notes. Wait! She's already done the notes for you!
I'm telling you. It's all there. Get this book. It is a must-have for anyone wanting to make it in the music business (or any other business)!
RECOMMENDED FOR EVERYONE Jun 17, 2008
Dayna Steele, Rock to the Top is an inspiring read, written with stories from her experience with some of the world's greatest rock stars. In addition to what it takes to rock to the top in whatever profession you have chosen, do it with passion, preparation and treat people with integrity. The book addresses how to be successful and draws you into a world of winners, of what to do and what not to do in your adventure to Rock to the Top. We are the Champions is a subtitle in the book where it's mentioned, passion gives you energy. She writes with simple to remember subtitles and stories that make the points poignant and unforgettable. I would not characterize this as self help but certainly motivational and if that doesn't intrigue you then the pictures of the stars in the back of the book will. I have read self help and always end up wondering what the writer was going through and how they actually got there, leaving me with no more answers than when I started reading. This book leaves nothing to the imagination of how to be your best and be successful at your chosen passion. What will you learn about success from the world's greatest rock star stories? Everything you need to know to find your passion and enjoy the read while you Rock to the Top.
Great Memories... Apr 11, 2008
As a long time Houstonian, I grew up listening to Dana and Moby. Reading her book brought back so may memories of "back in the day" when Dana ruled 101! Back when 101 was THE station in Houston! I sure do miss those days... Dana is a great business woman and knows what she's doing! This book was a great read!
It'll rock to the top! Apr 10, 2008
Steele does a great job of incorporating her experiences with music legends, as well as personal insight into the book as she teaches you how to excel at anything you do. I've never been much into rock, but this book was a gift from a friend and I actually enjoyed the entire thing. If you're looking for direction on how to rise in your organizations, it's all found in "Rock To The Top."
