Hi, We are Courtney and Dana

Founders of Hustle + Gather..

Our Story..

We are Courtney and Dana!  We are a dynamic sister duo based out of North Carolina who are perpetual entrepreneurs. Starting off from ordinary, we've paved our path by sheer grit and tenacity splashed with some therapy and coffee along the way. There was no magic formula that we followed or a specific business plan. We literally took the leap and luckily we had each other’s hand to hold. Making big changes and taking big risks can be scary, lonely, and isolating. We get it!

Over the past 12 years we have lived in that isolation, wondered where the next paycheck was coming from at times, and thought how in the world can we get off this roller coaster? We came out of the fire and now operate three successful businesses in the Raleigh area.

We are on a mission to inspire others to take the leap into their dreams and empower you to achieve unimaginable heights in your career. Whether you are an entrepreneur, career minded, or just questioning life’s direction - we have words for you! Speaking on topics such as Fearless Leadership, Perfecting Partnerships, or Balancing Big Dreams and Real Life - attendees will come away with real life applications and many laughs along the way!
