The Earn Learn Thrive Productivity Planner
Are you an ELT Freelance professional or business owner?
You love the freedom and flexibility running your own business brings, but often feel overwhelmed with everything you have to do. You already spend so much time working in your business, serving clients- how are you supposed to find the time to actually run your business effectively, and even plan ahead or come up with new business ideas?
The Earn Learn Thrive Productivity Planner: for ELT Freelancer Professionals and Business Owners is specifically designed to help you break down your goals into bite-size manageable chunks, and use your time in the most effective way. You can get more done, AND actually reduce the amount of time you spend hunched over a desk.
Step by step, the productivity planner will take you through an easy system which helps you to get better at planning, assessing your time accurately, and learning as you go.
It’s a combination of goal setting, regular reviews, and daily time blocking. And it really works.
- The ELT Productivity Planner is undated, so you can start at any point in the year.
- There are 8 x six week sprints, meaning that it will last at least 48 weeks (if you don’t take any holidays- which you definitely should!)

The whole idea of 'money blocks' might strike you as a bit too 'woo'? Isn't it just a convenient excuse to say that what's stopping us from making more money is our subconscious beliefs? Fairly obviously, I'd say, our beliefs are not the entire reason for the success...
Rather than telling you about yet more things you should be doing in your business, I thought I’d try a different approach.
Here are three things you DON’T have to do in your business… cue big sigh of relief.
Building a business is rarely about creating an overnight success. And, even when it is, we still then need to sustain that success day in and day out. So, it's perhaps not surprising that our enthusiasm to work on our business can falter from time to time, and we can...
