Productivity 101: Mindset for Authors

Learn how to work smarter not harder, be more productive in less time, and develop a productivity plan customized to you!

  Enroll in Course

Productivity 101 is the foundation you need to start building success. We'll cover one of the greatest barriers to success: mindset. You'll learn how to re-frame your thinking around what productivity and time management mean for YOUR life, how to achieve success, and develop a customized productivity plan to implement in YOUR life.

The course is delivered entirely online and you'll have lifetime access to it, so you can complete it at YOUR pace. You'll also receive a full-color workbook to guide you through the exercises. You'll get support each step of the way in our closed Facebook group, where you can ask questions, get clarity or additional help, and reach out to me, too!


My life was nearly derailed in 2017 due to unexpected health and personal issues and it was the first year since I started publishing that I wasn't able to publish a single book.

I felt defeated, destroyed, behind in life, and like I'd never catch up.

Sound familiar?

In 2018, I knew something had to change and that's when I developed this method to get back on track. Using this system, I managed to publish 4 books, manage more life and health craziness, all while still working my day job and writing on the side.

It's not about working more than anyone else. It's about working on the RIGHT goal, projects, and tasks for you, and learning methods for productivity and time management that actually work.
