SQUAD GOALS! Establishing True Friendships

Hi, I'm Shaina

I’m a Life Coach, mindset expert and interior design enthusiast living in sunny Los Angeles. I help people feel better and create a lifestyle they’re proud of.

The term “squad goals,” made so famous by Taylor Swift, is now the title of a new sitcom in the works for 20-somethings.

Ohhhhhh Hollywood!

We are not only pressured to look a certain way individually, but now many of us are striving to mold our group of friends to fit the cool, trendy look of young celebs today.

Getting that perfect selfie of your squad may feel satisfying in the moment, but a true, genuine friendship provides long-term fulfillment.

(but heyyyyy if you have both…JACKPOT : )

I’ve had my share of ups and downs in this area, but I’ve learned A LOT along the way…as I’m sure YOU have too. It’s worth taking the time to reflect on your own experience- what you value in the friendship department and how you can become a better friend yourself.

In this week’s FUN video, I give my 5 quick ways to identify a real friend based on my personal experience. Click below for “SQUAD GOALS: Establishing a Group of True Friends.”

p.s. Thank you to my friends for being a part of this video. It was so much fun to make!


My guilty pleasure is Bravo!
Real Housewives, Southern Charm, Vanderpump, Million Dollar Listing...I watch it all.
I'm a sucker for anything nostalgic.
I still watch reruns of Dawson's Creek on the regular
I know the lyrics to almost every 90's song.
Nathan says it's my hidden talent
My happy place?
Summer days. I love the beach, being tan, cookouts and country music!
Monica Gellar is my alter ego.
Cleaning and organizing are my therapy
I always have a candle burning at home.
I have a cabinet full of them.
My favorite movie?
Father of the Bride.
If I weren't a life coach...
I'd probably be an interior designer or do something in TV/ film production. Any chance I get to visit sets, I'm all over it!
