Description

Welcome students!

Following-on from my first course, Fast Track Entrepreneur: Start an Online Business in 4 Weeks, one of the questions I've been asked frequently by students is how to maintain enough productivity to ensure everything in your business gets done!

And my answer is always the same - productivity is not about working harder, it's about working smarter.

Of course, you still have to work hard, but there comes a point where trying to work even harder delivers diminishing returns until eventually you burn out. You exhaust yourself.

And when you exhaust yourself, your mind and body will force you to stop - and all your efforts will be for nothing.

So to be truly productive, and to ensure your productivity has longevity throughout your entire business career, you have to work smarter.

And not just when you're at work - being truly productive over the long-term requires full lifestyle optimisation.  

You need to eat right, exercise right, sleep right, rest properly, and these are just things you need to get right before you even step foot in your office to work.

Then you need to think about your work environment, how you structure your day, how you communicate with others, how you avoid distraction, and how you stay focused so that you are consistently working towards your high-level objectives every single day.

This course is designed to teach you exactly how to structure your lifestyle and work environment to optimise and prolong your productivity, and how to avoid exhaustion. 

Particularly, it focuses on the stresses, strains, and demands placed on business owners and entrepreneurs, and how to navigate your daily challenges effectively to achieve success in your business - and to do this consistently and without being of detriment to your health or personal life and other interests. 

And why am I the person to teach you about boosting productivity?

I'm Gavin Edley, CEO of Vitalife Group, a collection of entrepreneurial businesses operating in the health and wellness industry in the UK and around the World. We generate over a million dollars in revenue each year, and we achieve that with very few staff - meaning I still have a lot of core, day-to-day responsibilities in the business.

I know, first hand, how difficult it can be to boost and maintain productivity with so many responsibilities. Having a toddler and a busy family life also makes it even more difficult to maximise productivity. 

Over the years I've learned how to optimise productivity and simultaneously free-up more time to spend with my family, through working smarter.

In this course, I'm going to teach you how you too can achieve optimal productivity without risking exhaustion or burn-out.

I'm going to show you how to integrate some basic principles into your day-to-day life to make boosting productivity come naturally, and how to organise your work life and environment to maximise your impact whilst working, and therefore minimise the time you have to spend working. 

I'll also talk about motivation, and how you can ensure your productivity is properly directed and engineered around your high-level goals and objectives, so motivation is maintained over the long term, and so you don't waste any time on activities that are not relevant to your goals.

Take action, and say hello to a more productive, less stressed life. 

So go ahead, enroll today, and I'll see you on the other side!

Who this course is for:

  • Entrepreneurs or business managers who want to improve their productivity, beat lethargy, and avoid burnout

I’m CEO of Vitalife Group – a small group of fast-growing entrepreneurial businesses focused around health, wellbeing, and ethics.

Since 16, I’ve been establishing and running all sorts of different businesses, from cash management software, to affiliate marketing, to a copywriting agency, all the way through to stem cell banking!

Some businesses worked out well, others didn’t.

But through every venture, whether it failed or whether it was successful, I became rich.

Rich in the knowledge of what works and what doesn’t.

I don’t consider myself to be of above-average intelligence, or to be gifted in any way. I just take action. I test ideas and concepts in the real World. I then take the feedback from these tests and build upon it – avoiding previous mistakes, and focusing on what works.

Because of this, when I start a new business – whatever that business may be – I’m now 100x quicker and more efficient at getting it to a revenue-generating, profitable state, because I know where the shortcuts are and what avenues lead to dead-ends.

That’s why I started this course. To teach you what I know, so you too can start a business quickly and cost-effectively.

I guess the next question you could ask is why am I doing this?

If I’m doing so well with my own businesses, why show other people how I do it?

Well, the truth is, I have a real passion for business. And not just any business. In particular, I have a passion for seeing small businesses grow.

I love the excitement of building something from nothing. The ‘rawness’ of startups and the ingenuity and resourcefulness required to promote and grow a business without a multi-million pound marketing budget.

I want to show people who have never had their own business (or even those that have, and want to grow), how easy it is to get started. And, using my advice and guidance, how you can fasttrack your way to being a successful entrepreneur by learning from my mistakes, not your own, and by focusing on the things that work.

I want to empower people who don’t have a great deal of cash to invest in a business, with the knowledge and know-how to be resourceful enough to take-on established businesses and win.

Whether you already have an idea for a business, or just want to escape your 9-5 but don’t know how, I’m going to help you monetise your passion, I’m going to help you plan for success, and I’m going to help you implement that plan every step of the way.

So, are you ready?

Explore the course, read my blog, and take from it what you need to get started with your own entrepreneurial journey (or to fasttrack your existing one).

Go on. Dive in! And see what happens.
