An accountability program to help you finish the projects you just... can't.
Maybe you need to clean out your office, or rotate your closet, or go through those old baby clothes, or organize your photos, or write a presentation.
It seems simple enough. You know you can do it, but you just...can’t.
You haven’t finished it because either you…
Or maybe all of the above!
A place where...
Join me in The Zone starting September 8th for a magical experience where you’ll actually get stuff done!
You'll receive a welcome email with a link to schedule your one-on-one planning call as well as details about the The Zone working sessions.
I look forward to getting in The Zone with you!Sign me up! »
The Zone is a month-long program designed to help you complete a project (or two or three) that you’ve been unable to complete, for whatever reason.
The purpose of the program is to give you:
First, you choose some project(s). You'll think of some things you really, really want to get done but haven’t been able to, for whatever reason.
Next, we meet one-on-one. You and I will have a 30-minute planning call to discuss your projects, your challenges, and your goals.
After that, I create a plan. I'll email you a plan for tackling your project(s) over the next month.
Then, we do. Everyone in the program — up to 12 people — can join up to eight 2-hour Zoom working sessions, held twice a week.
This is where the magic happens!
You'll get at least 90 minutes of heads-down, hyper-focused, distraction-free work time.
You’ll have your plan to guide you. And I'll be there to chat, text, or talk on the phone if you get stuck or have questions.
Your Zone-mates will be there as your accountability partners, waiting to provide ideas and inspiration, cheer you on, and celebrate your accomplishments.
I know it sounds weird, but trust me... I’ve done it, and it works! (More on that below.)
OK, that’s not a question, but I hear you.
I signed up for a program like this at the suggestion of a friend, and I just could not wrap my head around how or why it would work. Really? I was going to pay money to sit on a Zoom with a bunch of strangers and work off-camera? That’s just weird.
But then I met with the coach and got some advice and perspective on my projects, and she gave me a plan.
Then I got on a Zoom and met a bunch of other interesting people talking about interesting projects. I started getting excited to turn off my camera and mic and buckle down.
I closed the door, turned off my phone and email, opened up a Google Doc, and wrote a 5-page plan for a project I’d been struggling with for a looooong time.
Would I have accomplished that if left to my own devices? Nope. Would I have checked my email, put laundry in the dryer, played with my kitten, gone on Facebook, called my mom, watered the garden, and done a dozen other things that were easier and more fun? Yep.
But I didn’t, because my coach had gotten me pumped up to work on my project. Because my mates were right there waiting for me to hear what I’d accomplished. Because I paid for that time and, darnit, I was going to get my money’s worth.
You will, too!
The first working session for the next Zone is September 8th. Sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Your one-on-one 30-minute planning call can be scheduled anytime between now and September 6th, and I will send you a link to do so.
The dates and times for the working sessions are:
You don't have to come to every session, but the more you can attend, the more you'll likely get done.
After you sign up, you'll receive a welcome email with all of the details.
The cost of the month-long program is $225. This includes:
If you need personal coaching in between sessions, you can schedule one-on-one sessions for $30 per 30 minutes.
I suggest starting with something small-ish that you can do in your home or office. Here are some ideas...
If you finish your project early, you can move on to another one and accomplish even more!
The Zone has room for twelve people. Just like you, they’re people who want to get something done but have obstacles they haven't been able to get past.
Your Zone-mates will become your accountability partners, provide ideas and inspiration, cheer you on, and celebrate your accomplishments.
Not unless you want to!
The goals of The Zone are to give you:
You can decide how you’re most comfortable operating in The Zone, and you can choose to have a different experience in every working session.
Your Zone-mates are all people like you who have their own challenges and struggles. You’ll likely have things in common, and many of you will end up sharing ideas and cheering each other on. There will be lots of compassion, generosity, and support.
You can show them your space or project, or you can keep it to yourself. But I think there will be times you’ll be so excited about what you’ve accomplished that you’ll want to share!
It's OK! You don’t have to finish your project by the end of the program.
Either way, you’re going to accomplish way more than you would have outside of The Zone.
If you get stuck, I can help in a few ways:
Also, we can always reprioritize and switch to another project in the middle of the program.
Remember, I'm your personal coach. Whatever your challenges, I'll work with you to come up with a solution.
First, we’ll celebrate you. Then you can put your feet up and rest... or you can start another project and accomplish even more!
You’ll need a laptop, tablet, or phone with a camera so I can see your space (if necessary) and your smiling face.
Nope! All of The Zone working sessions are optional. But the more often you come, the more you’ll likely get done.
You can ask for help from the group at the beginning and end of the Zoom, and you and I can have a private chat, text, or phone call any time during the session.
