  • By the end of this course, you'll know exactly where your time goes each day.
  • You'll learn how to take the first steps in growing your business with systems

  • You'll learn how to delegate your weaknesses. Learn from experts how to outsource the work you shouldn't be doing.

  • You'll learn how to be a more effective communicator... We'll start with Email then dive into meetings.
  • You’ll also get quick to implement tools and strategies for each step of the process.

Let's be honest, most "productivity hacks" just don't work. We start them with the best intentions, but along the way we get distracted or discouraged. You may start strong, but your internal voice starts saying things like,

  • “There’s no way I can get all of this done.”
  • “Maybe I’ll feel better if I do something else... What’s new on Facebook?”
  • “Where did my day just go? I was busy but don’t feel like I did anything important!”
  • “If I didn't have so many distractions, I could actually focus on one thing."

If you're like I was, you're probably overwhelmed, on the edge of burnout and feeling pulled in a million different directions. You're doing a lot of tasks that are wasting your time and aren't giving you the money or life you want.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

This course is for you if...

  • You’re constantly looking for ways to improve yourself
  • You’re looking for faster ways to get work done so you can make progress every day
  • You’re juggling a million things and know you need to prioritize or delegate them
  • You have great ideas but need to focus on accomplishing one task at a time

Here are just a few of the things you can start learning today:

  • How to find where every hour of your day goes to be more productive.
  • How to evaluate whether that time is actually making you money or not.
  • How to create step-by-step systems in your job or business to help it grow without you being there. (And not feel guilty about it.)
  • The exact questions to qualify people you delegate your work to.
  • Why I can leave my business for a week of vacation and come back without anyone knowing.
  • How to leverage your strengths and delegate your weaknesses. (You will learn from top experts on exactly how to outsource everything you should not be doing yourself.)
  • How to start outsourcing projects for as little as $5!
  • How to be a more effective communicator to close more deals, hold shorter meetings and master email.
  • Get a behind-the-scenes look at my business and get the exact tools I used to grow and automate my company.
  • The one tool that will enable you to never have to write the same email or proposal more than once again.
  • The secret to starting every day off successfully.
  • New York Times Bestselling author, Dan Miller's exact process for creating Mastermind Groups so you're always surrounding yourself with the best people.

...and much more!

I've made the first (and longest) video in this course completely free so you can see my exact process for finding out where your time is going and how to make your day more profitable.

One Final Note…

If you don't own a business, that's OKAY. These productivity strategies have helped thousands of people who work for small and large businesses as well. I've taught these strategies to everyone from sales teams to CEOs.
