Dayhanna hosts a podcast called Chase Your Fears. Season one of the Chase Your Fears Podcast focused on business and self-development. Season two has an entirely different approach and covers controversial topics and questions people never dare to ask. We discuss sex, politics, race, religion, identity, gender issues, disability and more. Our goal isn’t to win a battle of right or wrong. The show isn’t about debate. It’s about creating a platform where listeners can safely ask questions, evaluate their pre-conceived notions, exercise their curiosity and learn about people who are different than they are.
Acosta believes people are doing the best they can with what they have. She is committed to addressing marketing, business, and cross-cultural challenges while providing a learning environment free of pressure, fault or guilt. Through her training and workshops, Dayhanna works as a facilitator to help her students identify the issues that challenge them and hinder their growth. She motivates individuals to self-reflect, evaluate, and to collaboratively come up with solutions to the problems at hand while maintaining a fun, energetic and interactive atmosphere.
"I've taken several branding course, marketing courses and this is by far the most informational and educational one so far"
- Monique Smith, CEO of Beauty, Braids & Beyond
I thought the B3 for Women course was an eye-opener. I thought that it was going to be a matter of just sitting there and getting information, but it was engaging and interactive
As Board Chair of the Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation, we are truly thankful for the services and expertise that Dayhanna provides on an ongoing and consistent basis to support women and girls throughout SW Florida. Her commitment and follow through on projects is extremely timely and delivered with such energy and passion! We are thankful for our partnership!
I attended a live workshop on marketing and branding your business that was hosted and taught by Dayhanna. I have to say, she spoke and taught with such clarity! She made relevant examples and really helped me understand the importance of marketing and branding. She's a pleasure to be around and I enjoyed learning from her.
