This workshop is based from Denas 7 marketing principals that she has coached entrepreneurs with for 12 years, and has used to grow all of her global projects and national businesses!




Dena Patton is a game changer.
She helps entrepreneuers build their businesses with meaning, greatness, 
spiritual purpose & financial success.


As a powerful, motivational speaker who inspires audiences around the globe she is usually speaking on one of her favorite topics: Greatness-Centered Entrepreneurship, Greatness Marketing, Women’s Greatness or her Faith. When she’s not on stage, her coaching practice of 12 years guides women, entrepreneurs and celebrities in four areas: innovative marketing, business systems, leadership mindset & their spiritual calling/purpose.  She has won 9 business awards and can be seen in over 35 featured media stories. Her book Igniting Greatness will be out soon.

Her first career was in New York City where she owned a PR & marketing company that also had a publishing division. In 1997, at the age of 26 Dena sold that company to a start-up Internet/technology company and stayed on as their Director of Marketing where she built and led a community of 70,000 members (without social media), which has become the #1 global leader in it’s industry. In 1999 she shifted careers by training to become a Coach and opened a practice that offers both lifestyle coaching and business coaching. She has worked with celebrities and top CEO’s, but also loves working with the everyday woman who wants to fulfill her vision in life or business…..read more here.

 I knew your “Market Like You Mean It” workshop would be informative but the delivery and the information shared was way beyond my expectations. Anyone out there that wants to get clear on their marketing strategies MUST attend Denas next class. She listened to what each of us wanted out of the class, and then over-delivered!
Andrea Brundage – Professional Organizer, helping people find money, time and peace of mind



 I wanted to give Dena a shout out for her marketing class. She breaks down what can feel like an overwhelming process into easy, manageable, and understandable steps. She over delivers by providing personal feedback and giving great content. You dont want to miss her Market Like You Mean It class! 
Kristi Fowler – Life Trainer, Speaker, Author

Thanks for the Market Like You Mean It workshop today! I walked away with several great ideas that will be implemented into my marketing plan-most inspirational however was the concept of ‘smallness’ and the importance on staying out of it!! Much more productive in Greatness…
-Lisa Farrar, Karve Studio Barre Fitness Gilbert

Was in a great marketing workshop led by Dena Patton today. The thing that stuck with me the most is the way marketing is supposed to work–get your sales number clear FIRST and then have the marketing support your sales. We so often hear the message the other way around, so this was a real gem for me. Great job today, Dena, and thanks for your passion and support.
– Jody Owen, Owner at The Space You’re In, Productivity & Flow Coaching

Attended Dena’s Market Like You Mean It workshop today. WOW! What can I say, Dena Trakes Patton. YOU & your brilliance, uniqueness, willingness to approach marketing differently makes ALL the difference! While I had MANY take-aways from the Market Like You Mean It workshop, 2 things are jumping out at me: Sales is a goal that is SUPPORTED with proper marketing underneath, and having a Donation In-Take Form to sort all the many requests that I get for donations. Thanks a Million!!
-Char McCreadie, Mary Kay


Attended Dena’s Market Like You Mean It workshop today. It was so full of great stuff, great ideas and tools, and some very remarkable women! The first and best tool I acquired today was “own your greatness, play big!” It’s the perfect mind set to start each day in the shop.
