Sustainable Growth Practitioner, Yoga Teacher
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.
While leading growth at GrowthHackers, I helped teams establish a growth mindset and process as a foundation to identifying the best opportunities for sustainable growth. I'll help you rethink your approach to growth and give you clear action items for how to begin at your company.
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.
I'm a great listener. In fact, I've started a women only community specifically for supporting others through their tough times with support and accountability. I'd love to be here for you when you need it most.
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.
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.
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. I do this all while traveling the world. Currently, I'm in Amsterdam, NL.
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.
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 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!
Dani really knows her stuff!
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 ;)
Our discussion about an ideal growth hacking meeting was extremely helpful :)
Dani was very friendly and helpful, she shared great ideas and sources on how to grow our marketing!
Great mentor, I had some great conversations about growth and strategies to grow Feedier! Thanks again.
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.
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 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 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 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!
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 was so incredibly helpful. I learned a ton from the short time we spoke. Highly recommend talking with her.
Very to the point and helpful insights. It's really nice to get a second opinion. Thanks again!
Very friendly and helpful!
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 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!
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 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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Loved speaking with Dani! She was really helpful and it was really great connecting with her :)
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.
Had a great first session with Dani. A+ for listening skills and great questions raised. Thanks!
Thanks for all of your help Dani!
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 was super friendly and outgoing. She gave me some useful tips, and was very open to further conversation.
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
