Tips on Authentic Marketing From a Caffeinated Introvert.
I’m here for you.

In my humble opinion, you’re going to want to start every new project with fair trade organic.
Hi, I’m Daniel Shankin, a designer dedicated to making your life in the digital world as smooth and effective as possible.
I think it was Thich Nhat Hanh who said, “You only need credentials, If you don’t have loving kindness.” But, it was T. Harv Eker who said, “I’ll take both!”. I have a degree in Art History and some CE credits in web programming languages. I’m also a Registered Yoga Teacher, and have been teaching yoga and meditation for 15 years. I owned a yoga school for 5. I built my first website for that school. I’m also currently training in Presence Based Coaching, which is recognized by the ICF. exhale
There is a way to build an online presence that is both soulfully authentic, and effective in the marketplace. It’s a balance, and a continual process of refinement . It requires one to listen deeply to the client, so that their true self is seen on the screen. It also sometimes requires me to tell a client, ‘oh, honey, no’. It can be risky (see picture to the left), but it keeps things interesting, and ultimately, it’s worth it.
