Minneapolis! I like you!


Starting with Prince and ending with Garrison Keillor, Little Laurie McGraw hustled Shana and me all around her beautiful town, the concierge queen, with the perfect mixture of homegrown memories and fancy hotspots, from dark and cheeky 50-year old Liquor Lyle's to the gold and glittery top floor Guthrie Theatre, with encompassing city views, including a grand Viking ship.

Nothing Compares 2 U


Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Mary Tyler Moore.

And Laurel.

The Shana Stage!


Shana's stage just keeps getting bigger and better!

"She's quickly built a reputation for herself as being an influential voice in the industry. With her quick wit, entertaining presentations and sharp sense of humor, Shana is a speaker in-demand who always delivers."

Save the Planet


Part of me gave up on caring about saving the planet a few months ago, even stopped recycling here and there because, why bother? But maybe Lawrence Krauss will change my mind.

What is Content Marketing? 

Nevermind that, who's this KID! OMG! Shana stepped on the Digital Summit Phoenix stage and crushed it for four hours straight. She was smart and engaging and witty - she even said bigly, getting a huge laugh! I was in total awe, sitting in the audience as the mom, surrounded by hip millennials learning about analytics and landing pages and how you can schedule your tweets to go out for the next year and where's the best place to hide a dead body - the second page of Google!

Proud Mama!

Semi-Retirement Half Day Wednesday



As Billy Joel says, did some "forget about life for awhile" today. 

Hidden Figures movie - oh how far we've come, but still so far to go...
DBG - fancy cocktails at Gertrude's, strolling around the gardens, prickly pear and aloe, smooching in the tee pees and O.H.S.O. family dinner with the mini-me. A good rest for the brain.
