Hi! I’m Debra Giunta.

I’m the founder of Design Dance, Prismatic and a few more side projects if you’re willing to open that can of worms.  I use my immediate enthusiasm over new ideas to champion projects that make a difference in the lives of humans.  

 

What am I doing here?

Growing up, I was regularly sent to my room for being too bossy at birthday parties.  From the outside, I might have appeared harsh - a tiny 7 year old dictator telling my friends how to make friendship bracelets. But the truth was, I was extremely emotional, I just had not yet learned how to channel my desire to lead in a meaningful way.  

In 2008, I started a business when I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and quickly learned that being bossy and being a boss were not one in the same.  Since then, I’ve navigated the exhilarating, humbling, and often awkward personal journey towards what it means to take ownership.  Now, I teach, write, and talk about it with other bossy people with feelings.
