Dear Entrepreneur,

You are meant to thrive.

(not to run yourself ragged— misaligned and burned out.)


of entrepreneurs tap out or burn out within the first 5 years.

It's time to shrink that statistic.


Find Your thriving

Entrepreneurs are burning out in an attempt to deliver what they think the world wants... Meanwhile, the world is crippled with epidemic loneliness.

Is it possible to tackle both of these issues at once?

My hope and hypothesis is, yes— absolutely.

Your most valuable offer:

your humanity.

It's not your IP. It's not your product or service.

It's you.

The world is famished for connection, and there's something entrepreneurs can do about it.

This is how we do it

1. Thriving founder.
2. Optimized business.
3. Connective Brand.

Watch this quick overview of how the Fractal MethodTM works, and why I created it.

answer the call to connect with your people.

Let's work together.

My dream is to help entrepreneurs shift the way they think about marketing, so that the human beings we call "clients" and "customers" can find connection and belonging. Join me.

Meet your host:

Dana Spano

I've always known in my bones I was meant to make a big impact in life, but could never seem to figure out what that was (let alone bring it to life.)

After several attempts that fell flat OR made money (but didn't truly *
work* in the most important ways), I got honest with myself; claimed my calling as a coach and developed The Human+Being MethodTM and CHAI MetricsTM— my method for business design and brand strategy, and my signature program Alive+Aligned Entrepreneur followed soon after. Like buttah.

This is my life's work, and I'm so happy you're here to share in it.

I'd like to personally invite you to take full advantage of the resources here. Join me on the podcast, hang out and get freebies in
The Green Room, or if it calls to you— let's work together in one of my programs.

Can't wait to see you on the inside!
