My Grandma calls me Dani-Pie.

but you can stick with dani if you want.

I'm a list-loving internet ninja who loves hydration, my dog, long walks, and a good podcast.

If you had walked up to me ten years ago and told me that someday I'd be running my dream business out of my dream apartment in one of my favorite European cities more than 7,000 miles away from the state I call home (Minnesota!), I would have thought you'd lost your marbles. And then I would have gone and taken another nap. 

In 2010 I hit a breaking point with my health. I was overwhelmed, exhausted, and unhealthy. Determined to make a change, I sat down at the computer and designed a simple, one-page layout to help me create better daily routines. I called it The Daily Page. It would go on to become my best-selling product and earn me a spot among the top 1% of Etsy Shops in the world.

Within a few months of using The Daily Page, I had lost nearly 30 pounds and felt great, but what people couldn't see was the mental transformation and the way this simple daily practice had also transformed my brain, productivity, and relationships.

A few months later, I left my corporate office job, launched my own social media agency, built a six-figure business, and went on to achieve some of my biggest dreams including moving across the Atlantic Ocean to Copenhagen, Denmark. And I did it all while keeping my goals of living happier, healthier, and more hydrated a top priority.

It's been ten years since I sat down at the computer and cranked out that first version of The Daily Page, and it's still a part of my daily ritual and something I can't imagine living without. I've seen firsthand the magic that happens when we align our work and wellness in the same place, and I can't wait to show you how to do it, too.

Let's

chat...

Fortunately, you won't hear me talking about any of those things. I firmly believe in getting to the root of what makes us feel our best, and that strengthening this foundation is the secret to lifelong wellness

I'm not a fitness guru or a nutrition nut. I'm just a very average person. I only have two guidelines when it comes to food. You will rarely find me in the gym. Sitting in the sunshine is usually at the top of my to-do list. And I will be the first one to pour you a glass of wine at the end of the day. I am all about the sustainable daily routines that add up to big changes and I have one rule I never break: I fill out The Daily Page every single day.

I know...this looks like one of those weird infomercials about a new fad diet, magic pill, or trendy new workout.

"Being an expert on your own health shouldn't require tons of time or money, but it does require making it a priority every day, and The Daily Page is your secret weapon."

Building something bigger.

Building my business is about more than just creating a brand or developing new products. Owning my own buisness has also meant getting to structure it in a way that reflects my values and helps support the communities around me.

Please visit my Giving Back page to learn about my volunteer work, my personal pledge, the organizations I partner with to plant trees and protect water, and the scholarship programs I provide in order to offer my hydration course to the communities most impacted by dehydration-related illnesses free of charge.

let's get to know each other, yeah?
