We’re creative geniuses obsessed with helping people live your best life and helping you make an impact with your work. After spending a lifetime of personal self discovery, hard won challenges, and noteworthy accomplishments, we woke up...unfulfilled. We're not perfect, and that's actually what makes us different. Transparent. Honest. Real.
We are people psychologists (digging deep!), storytellers, designers, and curious purveyors of extraordinary talent. Our personalized solutions are our strength, providing big agency talent with very customized and meaningful results.
What it comes down to is giving you the keys to creating a life you are proud of. That's what we call living life on purpose, with purpose, and with real, genuine authenticity.
We are the next generation of curious creatives, business owners, who to exist to share our purpose and passions with the world.
Hi there! I'm Shana and the founder and girl boss at Total Genius.
I'm an entrepreneur, a business owner, a passionate dog mom, and someone who lives my life ON PURPOSE. In my world, health and happiness come first, and they aren't separate from your goals and achievements. In fact, you only amplify your successes when you understand the thing inside of you that ties your professional vision with your LIFE vision.
That's how I define purpose - it's not one specific "purpose" - it's discover your life HAS purpose - NOW - in whatever you do.
While you may have thought you had it all figured out when you started your company, got that promotion, or bought you dream house, those are only external things that stemmed from this life purpose.
It's not a "thing" you discover, it's a thing you UNCOVER. You already have inside of you.
And that's why you're here.
