Yawn… Ideas can be exhausting, can’t they?

Sadly, so many entrepreneurs sleep FAR less than they should, and as a result, wind up anxious, depressed, or worse.

I know. I was one of those entrepreneurs.

I had no idea what my purpose was, so I was chasing income rather than impact, was taking on more work than I could handle (because I was operating in non-stop scarcity mode), and…

For 18 months, I slept 2-4 hours a night… Max.

Not only is this not good for you, it’s unsafe. Our bodies need a chance to slow down and cleanse toxins away. Untreated and without sleep, we can succumb to adrenal fatigue, which takes far longer to recover from than it did to develop.

How many shallow holes are you digging?

Do you find yourself digging hundreds of shallow holes with plastic spoons, never seeing a project through to completion?

It’s easy to find ourselves chasing the dreams and successes of others when we are not clear on our Why.

Social media celebrations by our peers turn twinges of jealousy into monstrous squirrels, steering us away from our own purpose to chase their successes.

These detours can be treacherous, however, leading us down a path of frustration, anxiety and financial hardship.

How do I know?

I’ve been there.

Chronic Idea Disorder

n. An incurable condition resulting in a never-ending supply of entrepreneurial ideas.


Have you…

  • Felt the need to jump out of the shower to record whatever idea popped into your head?
  • Lie exhausted in bed unable to sleep because you were afraid to lose “another great idea”?
  • Had trouble seeing projects to completion because you’re easily distracted by Shiny Object Syndrome?
  • Sacrificed too much time with friends and family because you needed to make up for lost time focusing on non-income producing activities?
  • Invested enough in journals, pens and electronic note-taking apps to fund yet another company?

If you answered “Yes!” to any of the above, you are NOT alone – and I know how it feels!

Look at me.

I’m a mom of five, a multi-passionate entrepreneur, and…

I have learned to thrive with Chronic Idea Disorder.

For the longest time, Chronic Idea Disorder contributed to me chasing other people’s income and successes rather than focusing on my purpose. As a result, my health – both mentally and physically – suffered.

After much soul searching and many conversations with God and my own mentors, I saw a shift was necessary if I was truly going to LOVE every second of my work.

After years of personal and professional development, I found a way to help others which not only made me feel good but makes others feel good as well.

The Positive Productivity brand was born!

My Why

Empowering entpreneurs to work smarter, not harder so they can get away from their businesses and back to the people they love.

What is the Work Smarter Initiative?

Are you ready to L.I.V.E. B.E.T.T.E.R.?

Everything I teach and coach on revolves around the L.I.V.E. B.E.T.T.E.R. framework:

LOVE – You should love the work you do and the people you work with.
INTEGRITY – You and those you work with should live with integrity. Period.
VITALITY – What’s the point in building a thriving business if your physical and mental health are suffering?
EXPECTATIONS – Unreasonable expectations don’t foster success.
BOUNDARIES – Better boundaries reinforce your value and the value of your services.
EXPOSURE – Visibility is crucial if you want to attract clients and customers.
TEAM – How and where do you find competent and trustworthy team members?
TOOLS – Want feedback on the latest and greatest tools for small businesses?
ECONOMICS – How do you decrease expenses and increase revenue?
RINSE AND REPEAT – Repeatable processes are a key to removing stress in your business.

The Work Smarter Initiative is a community of incredible, innovative entrepreneurs who are ready to take thier businesses to new heights without increasing (bad) stress in the process.

How I Work

I’m passionate about helping my clients succeed in a nurturing, encouraging way. At the same time, I hold my clients accountable to meet their daily and weekly task goals – and to make time for self-care and non-work activities in the process.

Clients stay on track, focused and motivated through recurring weekly calls and intermittant check-ins. I make myself available for impromptu questions and pick-me-ups during the week, and strive to be the best partner possible in terms of support, encouragement and strategic development.

Need help figuring out which project you should be working on, ignoring the pesky squirrels, conquering Chronic Idea Disorder or overcoming Shiny Object Syndrome? As your mentor, I am here to help you hone in and soar!

NOTE: Self-care and sleep are so important to me that I will promptly tell a sleep-deprived client that our call is over as soon as it begins. If you’re not serious about taking care of yourself while growing your business, my programs are not for you.
