A 5-Week Accountability Program for Creative Entrepreneurs

not asking for what you need
is holding you back
I’m going to cut to the chase:
Hustle culture has created a “me-versus-the-universe” quagmire and it’s keeping you stuck.
What if you felt comfortable asking for the support you actually need?
What if it didn’t feel shameful to raise your hand and say:
“I’m struggling with procrastination and staying focused and I could really use some hands-on help.”
Entrepreneurship can be really lonely
And even if you’re lucky enough to have landed a biz bestie, it’s likely that they are the first ones in line to help you justify when you’re not making progress:
“You have a lot on your plate right now. Maybe next month will be better.”
…and probably offer less-than-helpful advice:
“You need to make a plan and just get it done.”
And while they mean well, and you love them…none of that is particularly helpful.
You’re tired of making excuses and if “just do it” worked for you, you wouldn’t be in this situation.
- You have big dreams, but you struggle to make progress on them.
- You know what you need to do, but actually doing it is the problem.
- You keep buying courses but never get around to implementing what you learn.
You self-sabotage, procrastinate and generally spend a lot of time wondering why you haven’t made progress toward that thing you really, really want to accomplish.
You’ve bought planners and courses and you’ve tried a million different productivity systems, yet you still can’t quite manage to prioritize actually doing the things that will move you forward.
What’s even worse is that no one around you seems to understand.
They tell you to give yourself grace, or that if it was truly important, you’d figure it out.
The truth is that you need to embrace the type of support you actually need.
👊🏼 You need someone that will hold you accountable, but also understand that “just do it” isn’t enough of a motivator.
👊🏼 You need someone who will help you take your goal and develop a realistic, personalized plan for accomplishing it.
👊🏼 You need someone who understands your roadblocks and will help you create a game plan for overcoming them.
👊🏼 You need someone who will check-in regularly and keeps you accountable–but doesn’t need you to do the same for them.
👊🏼 You need someone that you can bounce ideas off of, but also ask questions like “how do I actually set that up?”
The Cobbler’s Children Have No Shoes
I spent my first ten years as an entrepreneur feeling like I was beating my head against a brick wall every day.
I accumulated knowledge and experience, learned all of the tech, and understood all of the strategies.
I became the go-to person for my circles when they had questions about what to do or how to do something.
The problem was, I never implemented any of it for myself.
I consulted, advised, and implemented for everyone else, yet couldn’t get myself off the hamster wheel.
I hid behind the justification that I was too busy helping everyone else to work on my own dreams.
But the truth was that what came easily when I did it for everyone else was an absolute struggle to do for myself.
And then I was diagnosed with ADHD.
Once the shock wore off, everything began to click and I learned to lean into the systems I had created around myself instead of resenting them.
I began to ask for the support I truly needed instead of feeling ashamed that I couldn’t do it on my own.
And everything shifted.
With proper support, I began to actually get shit done.
The cobbler’s children finally had shoes.
Ready to make your shift happen?
Introducing Productive Shift, a 5-week accountability program for creative entrepreneurs.
Productive Shift is a 5-week program designed to provide the support you actually need.
You don’t need another course and hours of videos to watch about concepts you could repeat in your sleep.
And you certainly don’t need a business guru that shares her way of doing things and expects you to copy, paste, and magically be successful.
So you won’t find any of that here.
What would you accomplish if you had the support you actually needed?
🤩 You could launch that course you’re always talking about, but can’t seem to make time for.
🤩 You could finally transition away from client work that’s leaving you feeling drained.
🤩 You could streamline your process so you could help more people with whatever it is you’re called to do.
🤩 You could create and maintain a consistent marketing plan to ease you off of the revenue roller coaster.
Maybe you could even make time to rest.
You could experience the same shift I did.
All you have to do is step up and embrace the support you actually need.
Here’s how this is going to happen:
As soon as you sign up, you’re going to receive a questionnaire to fill out so I can tailor the support you receive during the program. It’ll ask you about your goals, your motivations, your strengths, and your struggles.
During Week 1 (Sept 21st-25th) we’ll schedule a 45-minute planning session. We’ll define your goal for the program and develop a personalized plan for you to achieve it.
During Weeks 2-5, we’ll have a 15-minute check-in session each Monday to discuss your intention for the week and make a plan for any obstacles you may be facing.
Throughout the entire program, you’ll also have access to weekly Focus Sessions — a 3-hour virtual coworking session on Thursday afternoons. These sessions can be an amazing accountability tool if you’re struggling with sitting down to get things done.
During the program, you’ll also have access to our group Slack channel, as well as my resource library. Consider it a space free from rabbit holes where you can bounce ideas off of me and your fellow program members, as well as access tutorials and guides that will save you time and energy when you’re missing a resource or learning something new.
Here’s the thing…
I know that needing this sort of accountability can sting a little bit.
You’ve likely spent years beating yourself up over your inability to get things done.
You’ve told yourself that if you could just be more disciplined, more consistent, or “more of an adult”…you’d be more successful.
But it never quite works out.
It’s time to set aside the “try harder” narrative and embrace the support that will truly make a difference.
A Full Breakdown of What’s Included:
Personalized Planning Session
A 45-minute planning session to define your goal for the program and create a personalized plan to help you get there.
Four weekly 15-minute check-in sessions to set your intention for the week and plan for your obstacles.
Weekly Focus Sessions
Four weekly 3-hour Focus Sessions for additional accountability. These quiet group co-working sessions are completely optional, attend for as little or as long as you wish.
Bonus Resources & Support
Daily accountability and support via our group Slack channel. Plus access to my resource library — including immediate access to my existing Blueprint trainings & an invitation to attend any live Blueprint recordings that occur during the program.

Who is this for?
Productive Shift is for entrepreneurs who are tired of putting their dreams off and want hands-on accountability.
Productive Shift is for entrepreneurs who are ready to stop beating themselves up for not being disciplined enough.
Productive Shift is for entrepreneurs who are ready to take action on their goals, and just need someone to sit beside them and give them a push every now and then.
Who is this not for?
This program is NOT for entrepreneurs who are looking for done-for-you implementation services.
This program is NOT for entrepreneurs who are unwilling to take action toward their goals and personal responsibility for their choices.
Is this a group program?
It’s a bit of a hybrid. Your planning and check-in sessions are private, but the focus sessions and Slack channel are for everyone in the program.
Can you explain more about the Focus Sessions?
Absolutely! Each Thursday afternoon, I’ll be offering a 3-hour coworking session that’s run Pomodoro-style. We’ll spend a few minutes letting everyone share their intention (a task you want to accomplish) for the session, and then we’ll all go on mute for 25-minutes to work on those things. When the timer goes off, we’ll unmute and check in on the progress you’ve made. Rinse and repeat.
These sessions are the virtual version of the ADHD productivity technique called body-doubling, and they’re highly effective. I’ve added them at the end of the week to act as a fail-safe to help you actually stick to the plan we’ve created together.
Why the Pomodoro-style? If we’re struggling to get into a flow state, having a check-in every so often allows us to catch distractions and rabbit holes before they’ve suddenly eaten up an entire afternoon. If you have happened into a flow state during a Pomodoro, it’s totally cool if you don’t unmute during the break and keep working. I’ll be really happy for you!
These are optional sessions, and you can attend for only an hour or two if that’s what you need. But if you’re struggling with sticking to our plan, and also not taking advantage of the Focus Sessions, then you’ll have to take personal responsibility for your results or lack thereof.
Can I sign up for just the Focus Sessions?
As of right now, that’s not something I’m offering. If there’s enough interest, I may consider offering these as a stand-alone option at a later time.
What happens after the five weeks are over?
I’m not going to lie, this program is a bit of an experiment for me, so I’m not entirely sure.
I previously offered the planning + accountability calls in a longer format called Blueprint & Implement that was a private, three-month program. I really wanted to make this style of support more accessible, and couldn’t resist the idea of pairing it with the Focus sessions that I’ve found to be so effective.
Ideally, once this round is over, I’d like to host another one, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
What types of goals can we work on during this program?
Ultimately, that’s up to you. My only requirements are that it’s something measurable and it’s something that can realistically be accomplished in a month. At the end of the program, I want you to be able to say you did what you set out to do, and have the data to prove it.
- Launch a new product or program
- Overhaul your client onboarding system
- Implement a consistent marketing plan
- Build an evergreen sales funnel
