The D.O.G. Roundtable is for you if:

  • You have a dog who has changed your life in some way and now you want to give back to the world because of it.

  • You get paid or want to get paid Doing Ongoing Good with the work that you do everyday.

  • You believe in doing the best, surrounding yourself with the best, and always being the best you can be.

  • Marketing yourself feels a little weird and awkward, and you sometimes have so many ideas that you end up doing none of them or feeling overwhelmed.

  • You’re ready to be an inspired influencer and leader in your category, create a legacy of positive change and just need some clarity in your big ideas and process.

  • You want to be a magnet that naturally attracts a community of people you were born to serve, who “get” you and get paid for the work that you do.

You are infectious and inspiring. I was completely floored and amazed at how perceptive you are and your ability to see me and my situation in such a short space of time. You gave some really profound and direct insights into my situation which I’m really grateful for.

I’m now fully booked with clients.I don’t think I’ve ever said thank you for the amazing work you do with me. You’re fantastic and I’m deeply grateful.
— Anna
You helped me see clearly and by the end of the first session I felt like I knew what to do to help myself IMMEDIATELY. Your ability to really hear what I’m saying and then say the perfect and most wise thing, whether it’s suggesting an action step or offering a new perspective.

If you’re thinking if this program is for you, I say DO IT! Shana has the most amazing gifts. She knows her business and at the same time can bring out the best in her client. Its like she has a second sense about how to handle people.
— Ellen
You’re objective. You look at the big picture. You have a modern perspective. I know how important work is to you. It is the focus of your life. I like working with you because you’re passionate about it. And personally I know you’re on my side and truly want me to succeed.
— Pamela
Shana gave us direction to redirect us and streamline our thoughts, and laid it out for us so we could break it down into actionable items. Before Shana, we had forgotten our reason for starting the business – which was to communicate and share the authenticity of our Japanese lifestyle. She worked with us to give us a new perspective and developed a budget to keep us in line. In addition to writing and developing all of the copy for our website, products and blog, she even introduced us to an herbalist who became a partner in the brand and is working to develop more products for our line. We are so grateful for our experience with Shana and highly recommend her to any entrepreneur or small business looking for a concrete map to lead them to success.
— Mario & Takako
All I can say is, if you haven’t yet - PLEASE DO YOURSELF A MASSIVE FAVOUR and book. After my first session I would say it’s a MUST!
