Sustainable Growth Practitioner, Yoga Teacher
I started my career on the technical side of email and now use email as a primary channel for online nonprofit fundraising. If you're looking for someone to brainstorm and set a strategic vision for the role email plays in your growth strategy, I'm your gal. Let's chat.
Building a resilient team that makes real impact takes dedication and intentionality. After leading multiple cross-functional roles and working within a wide-variety of remote setups, I'm happy to share how personality and core values can be a true asset to your team-building approach. Schedule a call and we'll start building your skills to build a team right away.
Whether you're a startup founder that needs help finding their blindspots or you're simply looking for a more sustainable approach to your work, I can help. So much of what we believe about ourselves manifests in our work. If you're having doubts, I'll help you break bad mental habits to help you become more resilient and achieve what really matters to you.
I'm a great listener and often have a different point of view than what's in your head. I've started a women-only growth community specifically for supporting others through their tough times with support and accountability. Whoever you are, I'd love to be here for you when you need it most and cheer you on as you head down your own journey with growth.
I've worked remotely both with a full-time role and as a consultant. It's not easy for everyone, but I've learned strategies that work for staying productive & fulfilled. If you're feeling burned out or lost, book a time with me and we'll help you build a strategy that works for YOU.
Product Market Fit is the degree to which a product satisfies a strong market demand and is foundational for growth. Many people have the misconception that they can “growth hack” their way to product/market fit (PMF). Trying to do this is generally very frustrating, expensive and unsustainable. Are you unsure if you have PMF? Do you need help getting to PMF? I have a proven framework to help you assess your PMF and use customer insights to unlock growth.
I build CRM strategies for small companies and use Hubspot to facilitate lead generation and nurturing process for the marketing and sales team. Most of my setups involve some integration with other platforms like Unbounce, MailChimp, Zapier, etc.
Not my favorite email platform, but I certainly know how to use it! I've been using Constant Contact for nonprofit clients for years. If email production is what you're looking for help with, let me know.
I've used Mailchimp for small and large accounts. Everything from setting up onboarding emails for personal blogs to large email newsletters like the GrowthHackers Top Posts weekly email.
I used Marketo while at Payoff where I managed the entire loan funnel. Need help getting your marketing automation off the ground or just need a second set of eyes on your own work? I can help.

A resourceful and adaptive “jack of all trades.” Having experience in both nonprofit and for-profit industries, I'm always finding ways to improve processes and test new ideas to make a bigger impact for the Trust. While email marketing is my primary focus, my broad range of experience and skills in marketing, psychology, and sustainability help fill gaps and inspire new ideas.
Reimagining wellness when we lose someone close to us as a copywriter and content strategist for Eterneva. Eterneva turns ashes into diamonds and helps people navigate new beginnings when someone remarkable in their life passes.
In the summer of 2018 I drafted my own core values. Through this personal exploration, I came to the conclusion that there were opportunities to fulfill these values that I wasn't able to while working for someone else. This is when I decided to plan my exit with GrowthHackers and start my own company, Growth Gal. I now consult with early-stage companies to help them adopt sustainable growth practices from the start. I also lead corporate yoga workshops and 1:1 yoga training.
Worked with companies all over the world to help break down silos, develop an understanding of how sustainable growth works, and kickstart their growth acceleration. Started an original content blog, recruited AMA hosts, launched a training program, helped launch Hacking Growth (authored by Sean Ellis & Morgan Brown), crafted the agenda and recruited speakers for the GrowthHackers Conference, and launched the software, NorthStar.
I led cross-functional teams to optimize the loan funnel, increase the efficiency of marketing efforts, and improve the value proposition of a Payoff Loan. I managed and optimized email automation for the loan application, and I managed the research, creative, data processing, sales prep, production, and cost reduction for integrated direct mail campaigns to acquire new loan recipients.
Awesome talk - really enjoyed the openness and felt very comfortable to share and listen to Dani. Looking forward to our next session, thanks Dani for your support and time.
I had a great conversation with Dani where she brought up really interesting points to think about and exercises to consider. She's an expert on burnout and was helpful in thinking about finding values and joy, which is super important to consider even early in the journey. Highly recommended mentor.
Was a pleasure to connect with Dani, who asked great leading questions, shared helpful personable stories that resonated, and gave great actionable advice and skills, paired with powerful neuroscience studies. Thank you, Dani, for bringing me back to awareness that "we're all in this together" and that our individual journeys are unique.
As always, my session with Dani was amazing! She helped me navigate the newly-unemployed and emotionally rocky landscape like a pro.
Dani is always amazing.
Dani was very helpful and knowledgeable about the problem I was facing. Her friendly demeanor and willingness to listen made it very easy to talk to her. Will definitely be scheduling another meeting with Dani in the future!
Got an checklist out of actions to follow from my meeting with Dani :)
Dani was awesome! She gave me such clarity on what my first action steps should be and how I should be thinking about building a community. Dani, thanks so much for sharing your knowledge so generously!
I scheduled a mentorship call with Dani because of the phenomenal reviews and they turned out to be beyond true! 😊 Navigating PMF is extremely difficult but Dani quickly understood the space I'm navigating and provided more than 8 invaluable insights! She helped me see things about my use cases and segments that I haven't really considered before. A small change in who you target and how you solve the problem can be the difference between you growing fast and becoming a unicorn or slowly fading in the dark. Dani went through multiple different permutations with me. She even proposed a feature idea that can act as a growth hack for my sellers. She's compassionately smart and I loved it, loved it, loved it!
Second call with Dani! One powerful thing that she taught me was -- the right founder - team dynamics is fundamental to driving growth, which I haven't really heard addressed elsewhere. And that's why I was delighted to understand how she would resolve tensions in the team and align folks around the right growth objectives. Thank you Dani! So grateful to be learning from you. Chat soon :)
Dani has the perfect last name, since she comes from the heart. We had a great chat about how people start businesses and try to scale them to prove themselves to others. I'm happy to know another mentor who's supporting people to find success in a way they enjoy most.
It was incredible speaking with Dani! She had a quick grasp on my problem space and in a short 30 mins we were able to speak about where I should be running growth experiments, zooming in and out of problem areas, building systematically and finding balance in growth. Those 30 mins flew by. Looking forward to the next session with Dani :)
I've been working on thinking holistically as a marketer this year, but it's been hard to find other marketers who think on a deeper, systems level (beyond the cookie-cutter stuff). And that's why I'm SO delighted to come across Dani. Not only she has a wealth of experience — having worked with world-class folks like Sean Ellis — she also brings a holistic, values-based perspective to how she approaches growth. Equally importantly, Dani has a lot of empathy and compassion for growth marketers and teams who are often put under tremendous stress. If you want an ally to deeply think and feel through things with you, don't hesitate to book a call with Dani :)
I've had so much pressure on myself, put on by myself, when I thought I knew everything about how to support me and my journey and what I need right now... And then I booked a call with Dani and realised and was reminded.. Its totally fine to not know and also learn new coping mechanisms in how to re learn and help myself. Dani, I'm so grateful for you. Your time, your kindness and tour sense od humour. Dani asked also for my address to try and send me food, so I didn't have to prepare anything due to being so busy. (awwwww, much?!) I can now apply these tools and apply to my work life too. Speak soon and take care :)
Loved, loved, loved my session with Dani Hart. Hart is smart and conveys her smarts with heart. Dani pegged my pain point instantly, which is narrowing my focus. I showed Dani my beta site and she explained to me that trying to start 5 businesses at once was ridiculous. Just like Foti's focus is on getting entrepreneurs like me unstuck, my current focus is on getting everyone underserved who's stuck unstuck, which is, in turn, leaving me stuck, for now, with a new Now U. beta site that's trying to be everything to everybody with no real functioning business behind it --yet. Anyway and alas, Dani's incisive, constructive critique now definitely finds me and Now U. in a pivotal moment moving forward in a clearer and more structured way towards formalizing this amorphous nonprofit thing and this GM learning process in a way that's certain to help me extract what's needed to build, measure, test, test, test, test & test Now U.'s future growth or demise.
Dani is warm and friendly. I consulted her about my career and on how to get leadership buy-in to execute marketing stuffs in my company. She's a good listener and her coaching are great. She asked me questions that are on-point. My main key takeaway from her mentoring is to align core values in my career.
Dani was great to connect with! She gave me some new ideas and things to think about regarding the problem I reached out about. It was refreshing to speak with someone who understood what I was going through.
Dani helped me with my personal branding by encouraging me to take a step back and look at the bigger picture and focus on what my values are to help figure out the tactical stuff. She opened up about her personal experiences to provide helpful examples of how she tackled her own journey. Highly recommend talking to Dani, she's all about community!
What a superstar! I should have had this call with Dani a long time ago. My life would have been much easier by now :) Thanks to her I feel calmer and more confident about my ideas. She taught me how to identify my core values as my compass and leave the rest to serendipity. Loved it. Thanks Dani.
One of the best sessions I've had with a mentor so far. Dani REALLY helped me put my role and my accomplishments into perspective for my first performance review at my job. Honest to god wanted to cry out of relief afterwards because I felt so seen! I'm feeling more confident about what I've been able to do in my role, and she also gave me plenty of great ideas on how to shape my Growth roadmap moving forward. THANK YOU!
Dani was great to speak to to help deal with the stress of being an entrepreneur. She helped me identify ways that I can quickly identify thoughts that aren't helpful (and stressful) and replace them with more positive and productive thoughts. Looking forward to continuing to speak with Dani!
Dani gave me a ton of tips and advice on how to handle stress and navigate the demanding modern worklife, how to reflect and develop more self-awareness, the value of finding out your strengths and personality traits as well as her best tips on how to prevent burnout. Overall, we had a very pleasant chat and I got amazing energy from Dani, very recommended!
Dani is brilliant and efficient. I wanted her take on changing my market due to COVID, and she was straightforward in her response, marking that I am not the only one going through this change. Very empathetic - she really cared. Thanks so much for your time!
Dani was such a pleasure to talk to and took time to follow up with several assets and links after our call. Thanks for your insights.
Dani was a great listener, and I felt she really understood the challenges I was encountering. She offered the perfect mix of empathy, reframing, and actionable guidance. Really appreciate everything you shared today, Dani.
We had a great conversation with Dani. She shared her story and the approaches she took to shape her career. She also gave me some info on the framework in order to identify my core values. Thank you Dani for your time!
These reviews are measured in Friendliness, Knowledge, Patience, etc... all qualities that Dani has in abundance, easily 5 stars. But there is more, some X-factor that makes her a very special mentor (for me anyway). I get the sense I can be myself, be ok with admitting utter defeat and she'll give me the space I need. I feel safe basically. She is also a living manifestation of her own advice and her own journey is inspiring in of itself. Thank you again Dani.
It was my first mindset coaching session and I'm so glad that it was with Dani! She helped me shed a light on something that revealed to be my biggest fear about my business. She's been very supportive and it was a pleasure to open up t her.
Loved my talk with Dani. Although it was short, she jampacked the talk with clear advice. We went through our marketing and rightly so she said 'you want to do too much'. You're in the phase of doing things that don't scale. So we are taking up her advice! Thanks dani :)
Dani is nice. I asked lots of different question about different areas of a start-up and she was very helpful and knowledgeable.
This wasn't my first call with Dani! Following our previous session about mindset and start-uppers' routines, she guided me through her experience with non-profits' fundraising! And trust me she knows what she is talking about. Btw she is one of the very few mentors that link to the non-profit sector. Thanks a lot Dani!
I signed up for a mindset coaching session with Dani and was pleasantly surprised by the experience had - she is a very clear speaker and came very prepared with curated books and resources (and a personality test!), which were relevant to my current needs and also. She gave me the unbiased perspective that I was looking for. It is hard to ask for more! Thanks!!
Dani is a phenomenal mentor! She has a vast experience to share, and she helped me a lot figure the next steps for my business and my personal journey :) Highly recommend her!
Great session with Dani who gave actionable tips to deal with the stress I can feel as an entrepreneur. I have started practicing yoga nidra thanks to her!
Dani was supportive and provided good suggestions.
I loved speaking with Dani! She's amazing! It was so uplifting and refreshing for me to here her insights into values and how to pick clients and loads of other topics we touched on! Thank you Dani :muscle:
Dani is AWESOME. From the very first moment you know that she knows what she is talking about. If you need input to start improving your productivity, feelings etc, then you should share your thoughts with Dani! And please don't be shy, she makes you feel comfortable from the moment she starts talking. Thanks Dani!
It was great. Dani was very insightful about career hacks! Hope to get back to her with good news :)
I loved talking to Dani. I'm looking forward to our next call :)
Dani was awesome. I felt naive booking a session without clear objectives but she took the time to ask clear questions to better understand the direction I am looking to grow. I would recommend working with Dani whether you have a clear hurdle you would like to overcome or just general growth guidance.
Great conversation. I now have a bunch of new ideas!
Dani was fantastic. She took the time to review our site in advance of the call and, in a very short period of time, directed us toward a growth process that we are eager to implement. Highly recommend!
Dani was amazing. She gave some great advice on my career and gave me a lot to think about. I highly recommend booking a session with her!
Excellent session. Really great start to mentoring. Great insight into some of the challenges that I have been facing. The blind men and the elephant insight has opened up my mind to solutions to a lot of challenges. Thank you. Looking forward to the next time.
Excellent! Gave some good insights and look forward to our next session.
Dani rocks! I feel like I can finally breathe again! :p
Dani Hart was amazing yet again. She worked me through the core values exercise and reviewed the final draft with me. It was such a refreshing session as I began my journey to recovery from burnout. She gave me a practical blueprint to plan my rest vacation and maximize every moment I was away. I left the session with clarity and the next action steps. Today, I create my schedule and time block based on my core values. I’m living from my core values and honoring myself with every interaction. Thank you so much Dani Hart. You’re the real deal!
I came into 2020 with extreme fatigue, very low blood levels, and a desire to do nothing but rest. As an entrepreneur that’s not a good combination. I was burnt out from running my business for 8yrs in a fast-paced growth environment. I needed help from someone that had experienced what I was experiencing. Dani Hart was a perfect match. My session was out of this world. She understood exactly how I was feeling with my burnout from unsustainable growth. She could relate to all my experiences. She was a great listener and her voice was soothing. At the end of my session, I felt I wasn’t alone because someone else could relate. I felt 100 pounds lighter. I got the courage to take time off from my business and rest. I also got lots of insight on how to create a more sustainable business. I incorporated rest into my business culture. Fast forward many months later, I’m well-rested. My whole team takes weekends off and we’re all building with sustainable growth as our focus. Woohoo! Thank you so much Dani Hart. You’re the real deal! I recommend Dani Hart to anyone looking to slow down and build a sustainable growth business. The last time I checked we’re still humans and our energy and time are still limited. We can’t do everything.
Great mentor, able to guide and consult on a wide, diverse, collection of growth topics.
Great session. Great insight.
She had given me very valuable suggestions to review my work
It was my first session. I think it went well. Although the outcome wasn't what I wanted it to be, I definitely got some actionable feedback.
Dani was very helpful during our discussion. She was attentive in regards to the issue I was dealing with and seemed to quickly understand where I was coming from. Her advice was solid and helped me along the way. I hope to follow up with more sessions with Dani in the future. Thank you Dani!
I wanted some clear guidance around 'next steps' and received it. I have my immediate one month plan and the mindsets are something I never considered, but now realize will be vital for the success of the business. Highly recommended.
Dani provided a refreshing, yet focused, perspective. She has significant experience with the growth mindset and was able to re-frame many of the concepts we've been discussing internally to help to focus our next steps. Thank you!
Another helpful session.
I really had a great and uplifting conversation with Dani. Looking forward to more!
Dani was soooo sweet, wise, and has inspired me in ways I didn't know I needed! she listened to all of my business struggles and helped me navigate some ideas :) If i ever need to vent to someone on here, shes the first I'm going to! Book a session with her ASAP lol trust me you wont regret it!! Shes literally here for you ..... LITERALLY :)
Appreciated the mix you counselor and mentor, as well as the ability to provide tangible and actionable todo coming out of the meeting. Will definitely connect again.
Great session with Dani - a lot of good questions that help uncover deeper problems, great attention to details and a wealth of experience to point me to the right direction.
Dani understood where I was in the start up process and offered valuable insights and connections to more specific expertise within the areas she recommended as next steps.
Dani was incredibly helpful and is obviously very well versed in early-stage startup strategies.
My call with Dani was exactly what I needed to realign my focus and give me confidence that I'm on the right track. It's amazing what a 30-minute conversation can do for your mindset.
Really glad to have a call with Dani – super invaluable. She is full of energy and her ability to listen, and offer thoughtful advice was very helpful. Will definitely be booking with her in the future. Thanks,
I had a wonderful call with Dani. She listened closely and with a lot of empathy. After reading my pre-call notes, she also came to the call with several resources that she generously shared with me. I feel energized and confident in a way that I haven't felt in months, and I look forward to meeting with her again.
Dani provided some helpful growth marketing ideas to test and improve our conversion rates. Thank you!
Dani was very helpful and she truly wanted to understand my perspective about the issues I'm facing at the moment with my career path. After 2-3 minutes the conversation didn't feel anymore like two strangers, but actually a mentor sharing her knowledge about the things she's been through. In the end, I regret that It was only 30min.
Great session! Dani was super helpful. She shared some practical advice on how can we go about refining our service offerings.
I really enjoyed my call with Dani! We talked about: * The importance of defining your values in working with clients * The realities of working in growth – it can be all consuming * The importance of networking, and getting work via warm intros * The importance of growing your network – "Don’t be afraid to reach out to ppl you follow and respect" It was a very valuable call and I am grateful for the opportunity! Will definitely follow up with Dani.
Dani's amazing! Such a great chat
Thank you, Dani. Your time and patience are very valued. This session was used to somewhat vent frustration on my journey as a professional and what steps I could be doing , right now to help me going. I look forward to being apart of your suggested Slack group and will give the books you suggested a try :D It was wonderful to meet you.
I spent 30 minutes talking to Dani trying to understand what are some of the professional and personal roadblocks I am going through. It was super impactful and allowed me to get some perspective. If you are going through a lot - just book a time with her. You won't regret it. #daniisawesome =)
That was a very helpful consultation! Than you very much Dani! Highly recommend!
It was a pleasure to speak to Dani, I just wish we had more time! She gave me a few actionable ideas and useful insights (I didn't think of before) for marketing my new sustainable business and invited me to the female founder community which was a great bonus!
Dani was really helpful with her advice and it was a pleasure talking to her
Great session with Dani! I received thorough feedback on my Product-Market fit approach. We also bounced some ideas and Dani shared her insights to improve our homepage messaging and optimize our conversion rate. I am looking forward to having more sessions and chat about our progress.
Being able to speak with Dani was a huge help. I was trying to piece together what the next steps in my career should be given my previous experience, current skillsets and future ambitions. I signed up for the session because, unlike other mentors that I have an existing relationship with, I knew Dani would be able to look at my situation and hear my questions from a completely impartial viewpoint. Dani helped to reframe my current thinking about how to evaluate opportunities and gave me tangible suggestions and exercises to take away from the session and move forward with. From there, I was able to figure out my next steps and shortly after landed in my new role as Head of Marketing at Leapsome where I couldn't be happier. Thank you, Dani, for your help and support!
I had a great first session with Dani, she has helped me refine and focus my growth strategy on key items including developing our story, community growth, email drip campaigns, and much more. I've come off the call with a bunch of new ideas and I look forward to our next call. Thanks Dani!
Dani was very knowledgeable in answering my questions and helped me strategize my marketing efforts. Booking a follow-up session.
Loved speaking with Dani! She was really helpful and it was really great connecting with her :)
Dani was incredibly helpful. She reviewed materials I'd sent before the call, and had actionable insights based on the materials and the discussion. She not only focused on the specific requests, but asked pointed, open-ended questions that helped give me perspective as a solo founder.
Very friendly and helpful!
My session with Dani was very insightful - she shared some great tips on setting up the growth process, as well as some tips on making collaboration with busy colleagues easier. I'm looking forward to learning from Dani again, I couldn't recommend her enough for anyone who needs help with business and professional growth.
Dani really knows her stuff!
Dani was very friendly and helpful, she shared great ideas and sources on how to grow our marketing!
Dani was super friendly and outgoing. She gave me some useful tips, and was very open to further conversation.
Had a great first session with Dani. A+ for listening skills and great questions raised. Thanks!
Dani was incredibly helpful on specific launch-day activities, pro tips (particularly on Product Hunt launch best practices), and pricing. I've only scratched the surface of what she can offer, and she'll be a valuable mentor as I launch and beyond.
Very to the point and helpful insights. It's really nice to get a second opinion. Thanks again!
Our discussion about an ideal growth hacking meeting was extremely helpful :)
It was a pleasure speaking with Dani and hearing her perspective on sustainable growth. She noted several resources I can start using immediately to improve the way I vet the clients I work with and help ensure an ethics fit. I look forward to continuing the conversation!
Dani is a fantastic growth mentor — be it for personal or business growth. Her sage advice and wisdom is invaluable. I couldn't recommend her more. :)
Dani was awesome! She was supportive of my knowledge to date and was incredibly open about the process that she takes. I now have plenty of super useful, actionable ideas that I can bring into my own work that I'm very excited to try out. Thanks so much for your help, Dani!
Great experience for a first time user of Growthmentor. Dani is very laid back and conversational while bringing a great amount of knowledge on marketing, growth hacking and life. We discussed how to manage a growth team, decide which tactics prioritize and focus on, martech tools and B2B tactics. I will definitely book sometime in the future to discuss my own going growth hacing challenges.
Thanks for all of your help Dani!
Growth Gal is definitely a 5-star mentor. Super friendly she really walks you through the step for you to upskill by focusing on what really matters. I really enjoyed my first call with her and I will for sure book some other calls soon.
Great mentor, I had some great conversations about growth and strategies to grow Feedier! Thanks again.
I can highly recommend Dani to anyone that wants to know more about growth strategy, hosting conferences, and about personal development. She is very experienced and she shared insightful and most of all very actionable advice that helped me get more clarity on moving forward with growth strategy within my own agency. She listened very well to my questions and knew how to empathize with my situation to provide me with relevant answers.
Dani is a wonderful growth mentor who shared a lot of advice, recommendations, and actionable takeaways that we can apply to develop our own growth function. With a host of experience in tech, SaaS, and from growthhackers.com I can highly recommend Dani to anyone who is looking to build a more sustainable approach to growth! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Knowledge ranks low because it was a short call and we didn't get into it.. but I'm sure she will be able to help us.
Dani is awesome. She took the time to listen to my challenges and goals and provided me with some really great advice to help me take the next steps. In the past I've found it difficult to extract value out of a short phone call, but not with Dani. If you are trying to grow your company, I'd strongly recommend chatting with her!
Dani is an all around superstar. Her feedback on what to keep an eye on as we launch our growth process was super helpful. Thank you!
She is very nice, friendly and a great listener. She has great knowledge and insights in the area I was looking for some advice. I highly recommend her to have a session!
Dani is without a doubt a great mentor to have. Super positive, really insightful and also shared some great frameworks and techniques that will be valuable for us at the stage of our journey :)
Dani knows the ins and outs of sustainable growth. She is also not afraid to rip back the layers until she helps you uncover what your actually need to grow your business.
Dani has such a great way of looking at the world of growth! She gave me a lot to think about as a newer growth person and answered all of my left-field questions. Well worth the time!
Dani was gracious enough to let me reschedule the call after I screwed up the time!
Dani is an insightful and friendly mentor. She patiently listened as I described how and why we are building MFY, our current plans for how to launch on product hunt and how we are trying to position ourselves in the market. As she offered suggestions on how we "go-to-market", it was clear that she was talking from her wide experience and based on what she learned from her mentors, especially from Sean Ellis at GrowthHackers. She also offered to reach out to her network to get more feedback on how to improve our product. I genuinely recommend her, especially to brainstorm product launches or to discuss go-to-market strategies.
Dani was so incredibly helpful. I learned a ton from the short time we spoke. Highly recommend talking with her.
She was very patient with me, giving me good insights and tips, and was very thorough with the way she outlined everything. For that, I can't thank her enough. As I'm relatively new to the growth/marketing world, Dani reassured me that, yes, I too can succeed at this game if I put the work in. :)
Dani did an awesome job! She is really knowledgeable in growth hacking, and gave me soo many great insights in such short time period. Plus convinced me to do yoga, to help me get into work-life balance ;)
Dani was spot on on making me reflect upon my challenges and understand what lays behind what goes on. I'm certainly booking a few more hours to reflect on the progress of the challenges I had and to " step up" my game!
