Business Coaching

Dana works with select entrepreneurs, business owners, boards, and companies. Some of these clients have included employees at Apple and Genentech, Silicon Valley startups, and established companies. Her targeted work has enabled clients to negotiate a six-figure consulting contract with Twitter, succeed at interviews with Fortune 500 companies, and significantly increase business, profit, and fundraising results. 

Her work is conducted one-on-one, in small group settings, and through written analysis to address career planning, interpersonal dynamics, maximizing performance, and financial planning and negotiations.

“Working with Dana has been such a gift that has literally changed the course of my life.

Through our work together, she helped me uncover my top values and craft a business that I I love. Since working with Dana, I've launched my Nourish Co, a lifestyle brand merging Japanese-American & Jewish home cooking, interior designing and expert entertaining. In the early days, she believed in me and my business when I couldn't. Her belief in me was instrumental to my early success. In a short period of time we have grown to a team, are completely self-sufficient and were recently featured in the Sunday edition of our local newspaper, The San Francisco Chronicle!

Every business owner would benefit immensely from working with Dana, it is by far one of the best decisions I've ever made- both professionally and personally.” — Kristin Eriko Posner, Nourish Co. (

I want to say a big thank you to Dana Putnam Fonteneau for being a incredible coach. I come off our calls energized and focused on what needs to happen next to grow my business and continue to build the life I love. It’s great to work with such a visionary!
