Your business is growing,
…and so is your to-do list.
You love your business and serving your clients, but you wish it was easier.
Deep down, you’re starting to resent your business for taking all the joy out of working your magic.
It’s feeling harder and harder to keep on top of everything. Things are starting to fall through the cracks, you’re taking longer to reply to clients, and you keep putting off the launch of your course.
You feel so overwhelmed right now.
to get out of your funk,
you convince yourself that working on small tasks – those that don’t get you closer to your goals, such as updating your IG bio for the tenth time this month – will motivate you to tackle the bigger ones – like working on the sales page for your upcoming course.
So you push through and tick a few things off your giant to-do list. It gives you the instant satisfaction that you’ve done something today, but it didn’t create the momentum you were looking for. You’ve spent the whole day doing menial tasks, and it doesn’t make you feel good. You feel like you’ve procrastinated once again.
You enrol in a mastermind with the hope that you’ll finally get the accountability and motivation that you need to work on your business. But you end up with even more work and more things to do, and you’ve strayed so far away from your goals. To help you get back on track, your business coach tells you to sign up for Asana because it “changed their whole business”, and so you do.
You really want to make this work, so you watch videos online, enrol in free courses and end up with a bunch of templates that look very nice, making Asana all pretty to look at. But “looking pretty” isn’t enough. You don’t know how to use those templates, so you revert to using Asana as your giant to-do list – or worse, you drop it altogether, making you feel like a failure in the process.
Friend, you’re not a failure.
There’s nothing wrong with you. Nothing at all.
The thing is:
You’ve been focusing too much on finding ways to “fix” yourself to make you more organised or productive without understanding how you operate.
Being unable to make these strategies and systems work for you doesn’t mean anything about you and your ability as a business owner.
Case in point:
you’re a successful business owner already.
You don’t need:
- more self-loathing about your inability to be organised or get on top of your to-do list.
- more books to read, apps to use and strategies to implement that seem to work for everybody except you.
- more tools to systemise and automate your business that only make it more complex and overwhelming to run.
What you need instead:
Uncover the way you function
so you can
- be intentionally productive
- run your business with ease, fun and focus
- be free and fired up to actualise your vision for the world.
In case we haven’t met…
(aka Em, Your Intentional Productivity Coach)
In 2019, I found ClickUp, and it was love at first sight.
I finally could do all the things I wanted to do to run my business my way.
I’ve since helped clients do the same and set up ClickUp so they could be intentionally productive and feel more focused.
In the process, I’ve created systems, processes and templates to transform ClickUp into your business hub and make running your business easier so that you can spend more time in your zone of genius and working on making your big vision a reality.
It’s time to set a solid foundation and simplify your business so you can scale your business sustainably.
I’m here to show you how to harness the power of ClickUp to do just that.
“We haven’t even been working together for 2 full months yet, and I’m entirely BLOWN AWAY by how much impact Emilie has had on my business.”
I feel like I’m finally providing my business with what it’s been so desperate for…a way of working that actually allows me to move FORWARD on what I say I want to do instead of feeling sad and frustrated about all the things on the ‘one day’ list.
As well as seeing my bigger business visions come to fruition, I’ve noticed that now I’m able to support my clients better than ever. Streamlined systems and processes that are bespoke to me and my style = a whole lot more flow and ease in my day.
My only regret about working with Emilie is that I didn’t decide sooner. If these are the results I’m seeing already, I can’t wait to see how my business looks and feels in another 2 months’ time.
Here’s the process we’ll follow:
“Emilie has immense capabilities to fastrack and put the building blocks in place very quickly”
When I found Emilie, I was looking for a heart-led woman to support me with the technical aspect of my business. I was transitioning from pro bono to a business model and wanted to create a paid mentoring program and a supportive community for Asian-Australian Women. Emilie very quickly connected with my vision and understood my approach to use tools created by more socially conscious companies.
Emilie guided me in shaping my thinking around the next stage of Sum of Jean, and created the system to support me in this transition. My backend systems work beautifully together and are scalable. Things I’d never thought of are in place, and I can now grow my business with the knowing that the systems and processes will enable this. The booking and video conference systems talk seamlessly, and it feels professional when women can just book in and everything is set up.
“My business now has automation from end to end”
Working with Emilie has ensured my business has a strong foundation. They say having a structure gives you freedom and Emilie has definitely guided me to build that in my business. My business now has automation from end to end and I have more time, energy and focus to build my business. If you have an online business and you want to feel connected, free and successful then you need to work with Emilie.
This isn’t a quick process.
We really need 12 weeks to get your work management platform ready.
Here’s what I’ve learned from going through this process 1:1 with clients who have resisted having systems in place for so long:
Learning a new tool and a new way of working takes time.
But, when you take the time to implement it the right way (which I’ll teach you in CEO Ignited), you speed up the process. This means that in 3 months from now, you’ll have a way of running your business that suits you instead of a Frankenstein tool that you avoid at all cost and that you’re tempted to replace with pen and paper.
Overloading your brain with more things to do and remember isn’t going to help you move the needle. Instead, you need to give yourself (and your brain) time to absorb, learn, implement, and adapt.
I know you know this but building a new habit takes time – 66 days on average (yep, not 21!).
And this is no different. What you’ll learn in CEO Ignited goes beyond having new systems and tools for your business. It’s also about creating new habits to ensure you use those systems consistently until it becomes second nature.
So give yourself and your business the gift of a season – a whole 3 months – to move you from…
overwhelmed, scattered and frustrated
grounded, focused and intentionally productive
…so that you get the right support to uncover your way of working and translate it into a tool that you’ll actually use.
You’re still here…
so I’m guessing you’re wondering if this is the right move for your business right now.
You can see how having systems and the right tools could make running your business so much easier and more sustainable.
BUT you simply don’t have the time right now. You’re too busy…
- with clients
- doing all the things to launch your new program
- creating loads of content for social media
- doing the homework your marketing or business coach gave you
- with life
Deep down, you know that you probably could find the time if you were more organised and had better systems. But it’s not your priority right now. You simply don’t have the headspace for this at the minute.
But let’s be honest – will you ever feel like it’s the perfect time?
And if you continue at this pace, will you be able to grow your business without burning yourself out?
And despite what your business coach might tell you, simply signing up for Asana (or whatever work management platform you decide to use) isn’t enough.
This is actually a recipe for disaster and more overwhelm.
Yes, you need tools and systems. But what you need most is to understand how YOU work to create a container that will support you and your business as it grows.
This is what investing in yourself and your business means. It’s not just about investing in things that will bring you more clients.
It’s investing in the tools, strategies and backend systems that will set a strong foundation and support your marketing so that you can bring in more clients and scale sustainably.
Questions you might have before enrolling in CEO Ignited
Do I need a paid ClickUp account?
No. Everything that I share can be done on a free plan. However, some features, such as custom fields, have a limited number of uses on the free plan, and you’ll need to upgrade if you want to keep using them.
FYI, custom fields are the reason why I upgraded my account and also the reason why I love ClickUp so much. I can do everything I want thanks to custom fields.
Full pricing here.
If you decide to upgrade, you can get 15% off the first year, using my referral link.
What times are the calls?
Because this is a 1:1 program you can select a time that works for you (we’ll do this in the onboarding call).
Calls are usually on Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning (AEST/AEDT Sydney), but if these times don’t work for you, we’ll find another time!
How much time do I need to set aside?
You’ll need time to go through the content of each module, fill out the workbooks and then play in ClickUp. A couple of hours should be enough for each module, bearing in mind that a module spans 2 weeks.
Plus, we have a 60-min coaching call every fortnight.
What happens after I enrol?
You’ll be asked to create a Teachable account (or sign in with an existing one). You’ll get access to the handbook and Module 1 straight away.
You’ll also get a Welcome email.
