        Ollie and I have similar stories: burned-out agency owners who started writing online and experienced life-changing results. If this sounds like you too (whether you're an entrepreneur or a high-achieving, exhausted employee), then you'll feel right at home.

Course syllabus



Before starting any mission, you'd better be sure you want to do it. Embracing this is the first step to building a Work/Life Flywheel. We'll focus on how to develop a MINDSET that's aligned with your values and goals, and sets you up for lifelong learning.



Every day, we have a million different ways we can spend our time. Using the 22 Flow State triggers as a framework, you'll first do a time audit before discovering how FOCUS and constructing the right conditions can lead to 500% improvements in productivity, 490% increases in learning speed, and a 430% boost in creative problem-solving. 



CREATIVITY will be the differentiator in the future of work and after this session, you'll consider it a core value. You'll develop techniques to capture your ideas and turn them into compelling stories.



When it comes to sharing your ideas, you need to develop an attitude of constant EXPERIMENTATION. You'll create a 30-day content plan, which will help you test your ideas, establish your expert niche, and create exciting opportunities and connections.



Legendary innovators need the support of others, which is why we'll examine the importance of building a COMMUNITY to help grow your career. We'll look into established and emerging networking opportunities, as well as techniques to give you the confidence to up your relationship-building game.



The final piece in your Flywheel focuses on the importance of rest and reflection to achieve BREAKTHROUGHS. While making big changes in your career can be tough, by approaching it like Elite Athletes, we'll design a work/life schedule that balances pacing with peak performance, all while avoiding burnout.
