Reviews and Recommendations

"Excellent coaching! Reach your goals without sacrificing quality of life. Shana Ackles , thank you!"

- Melissa Flint

"Shana is a logical, inspirational and genuinely kind human being.

I met her because she was the broker in my Market Center in Alaska. Our team sells 500-600 homes a year and I don't often need to speak to a broker, but when I did, Shana always had a logical point of view. There wasn't a problem that she and I couldn't solve together.

For example, there was an instance where a high-profile deal went south. I was working with two powerful parties and one of them was unhappy with how the deal turned out and threatened to sue. I brought the problem to Shana and she went with me to meet with the sellers and find a resolution. It's that sort of dedication that sets Shana apart from others.

She also has an understanding of how humans work and can cast a vision for you that you might not see. That's why she's an amazing consultant... because after she paints a vision for you, she has a way of encouraging you so that you overcome your fear of failure and reach your vision.

Shana has done exactly that for me and helped paint the vision for the Christopher Walden House of Hope, an addiction-recovery/rehabilitation facility we're starting in honor of my son. And in all honesty, I could not have done it without her. She took the time to understand what I wanted to do, encouraged me to overcome my fear of failure, and kept me focused on our goal of completing the Christopher Walden House of Hope by September 21st, 2021.

She has taken the bull by the horns and been a constant source of optimism, logic, and positivity throughout one the most difficult projects of my life.

If you get the opportunity to consult with Shana, take it. She has a clear picture of life and brings positivity wherever she goes. If she wasn't my close friend I would hire her as my consultant and you should too."

"Shana is an inspiring leader and friend. I met her 8 years ago.... we both worked at the same office and became friends quickly. Shana was the team leader in Alaska and I always paid close attention to how professional she was with the agents in the office. Being a Team Leader is difficult and Shana did it with grace.

Later in my career I became a team leader too and really leaned on her during that time. I remember calling her out of the blue, often, to ask for help and she always made time for me. No matter what she had going on, she always made time for everyone... That's difficult to find in our industry and I admire Shana for it.

If I had to describe her in one word, I'd use the word "present" because she makes people feel like they are the most important thing when she's with them."

"Growthward showed me that anything is possible, and that my goals can be achieved at a much quicker rate than I ever anticipated. With the right tools and people in place, I can accomplish more than what I thought was possible. Since joining Growthward in August I was able to make my first two hires (I never thought I would be hiring anyone, let alone in my second year of real estate) my personal sales business increased YOY from last year (my first year) by 178%.

Growthward allows me to vision my big picture goal and helps me break down the small necessary steps it takes to get there."
