At Shine, we love seeing all of the amazing things you all are doing every day to achieve your goals and live your best life. We created the Shine Squad to connect you to other Shine users to get advice, network, and lean on a group of the coolest, kindest people who will be there for whatever you need.

To join the squad, simply refer 10 people to Shine using your unique referral link.

Need help referring friends? We got you. Try some of these tips from members of the squad to help get your Shine on.
