I'm Kristin Shane. I'm a proud working mama of three amazing kids and wife of the one and only Ben Shane.
I spent most of my career running businesses for Target. A job I loved. But my dreams were bigger… Fly Feet and The Studio Eight Consulting Practice were born in 2016, this blog was born in 2018, and The Catalyst Circle was born in 2019. And we’re just getting started! We moved to Phoenix in 2019 to go back to that corporate life as the SVP of Merchandising for PetSmart. My hubs and I are living the #startuplife, juggling #parentlife and now we’re back to the #corporatelife! In the end, we strive to live life to it’s fullest and be good humans.
You'll see I certainly don't have all the answers. But I've learned a couple of things along the way. Usually the hard way. So, I thought I'd share. Here. We. Go.
Kristin is the Chief Dream-Follower and Founder at Fly Feet Running, the Senior Vice President of Merchandising for PetSmart, Founder of The Catalyst Circle, Author at kristinshane.com, Founder of The Studio Eight Consulting Practice, and passionate speaker on transformational leadership and chasing the best version of yourself. She spent most of her career ascending the ranks and running high profile businesses for Target, most recently as the Vice President Merchandise Manager of the $6B omni-channel beauty and personal care business. She started Fly Feet in 2016 to realize her own vision: to inspire people to chase the best version of themselves. Through a thrilling high-intensity workout, Fly Feet meets people where they are on their fitness journey and helps them make measurable progress. It’s part of Kristin’s lifelong pursuit of her personal best, from the boardroom to the fitness studio to the elite marathon circuit (she’s completed 15, including Boston). Her passion is building high performing teams and businesses. Last year, she was the recipient of Women in Business Award by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of Twin Cities in Motion. She also has an MBA, was a Peace Corps volunteer, and is an unstoppable mom to her three young children.
