Anxious, overwhelmed, unfocused, demotivated, busy, stressed. These are just some of the words I am hearing from busy individuals all over the world, trying to balance work and life. If you have ever used these words don’t sweat I’ve been helping people get more productive since 2007.
I am very familiar with the struggles because I was once chaotic, disorganised and frustrated but in the past 10 years I’ve written 3 books and an audio course and also achieved a Masters in Business while helping some of the biggest organisations create more productive teams.
Wiley commissioned me to write Productivity for Dummies, Audible to write their Get Organised course and Insight Timer to create content for Insight Timer @work.
If these big brands sought me out and trusted me you can too. I know how to transform any struggles into solutions. I’ve worked alongside CEOs and I’ve even helped chefs get more done.
