Take back control of your time and unlock your true earning potential
Are you sick and tired of feeling like there are just never enough hours in the day?
Are you fed up with feeling overwhelmed and like you're always behind schedule?
Do you struggle to prioritize your tasks and focus on what's truly important?
Do you sometimes feel like you want to throw your to do list out of the window?
Are you fed up with working super hard and yet never seeing the results you've been hoping for?
Are you finally ready to take back control of your time, start making real progress on your goals and unlock your true earning potential?
Do you want to earn MORE, while working LESS?
If you answered YES to any of these questions then you need PROFITABLE PRODUCTIVITY!
YOUR TIME IS FINITE!
No matter who you are, you only have 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week.
So, given that you only have a finite amount of time for your business – whether for you that’s 5 or 50 hours a week, it makes logical sense that you should spend those hours on the tasks that will move the dial the most, right?
The problem is... most bloggers and online business owners do the exact opposite – without even realising it!
Hey, if we've not met before, my name's Eb Gargano... and I have been working with bloggers and online business owners now for over 5 years. In that time, I’ve helped over 2500 course students improve their productivity, become more successful, and build more profitable online businesses.
And time and time again, I see the EXACT SAME PROBLEM… Those High Impact Tasks – those tasks that would move the dial the most, those tasks that would get you to your goals in the shortest possible time, those tasks that would seriously boost your income – are the very tasks that NEVER GET DONE!
Those High Impact Tasks are the ones that languish at the bottom of the to do list... and keep getting put off and put off and put off until some mythical ‘one day’ in the future... that NEVER HAPPENS!
And instead, the tasks that DO get done are the Low Impact Tasks – busy work, shiny objects, admin, easy-but-unimportant tasks and endless scrolling on social media... (Tasks that I call ZERO MONEY TASKS!)
This is the BIGGEST MISTAKE I see bloggers and online business owners making. This is the #1 mistake that holds so many online business owners back. This is the #1 reason why so many bloggers and online business owners feel so overwhelmed and stressed out and frustrated. This is the #1 reason why they are not getting any closer to their income goals even though they are working super hard…
IT'S BECAUSE THEY ARE SPENDING ALL THEIR PRECIOUS - FINITE - TIME ON TASKS WHICH DON'T MOVE THE DIAL!
Why does this happen? Well, two reasons...
The first is because you are constantly being told to:
- 'do this new thing to get more traffic'
- 'do this other new thing to earn more money from your blog'
- 'do more video'
- 'be active on every social media channel under the sun'
- 'use AI'
- 'diversify your revenue streams'
- 'write more blog posts'
- 'pitch for sponsored posts'
- 'sell printables'
- 'publish an ebook'
- 'create a tripwire'
- 'start a podcast'
All around you there are voices pulling you in 100 different directions. And it's hard to know who to listen to or what to focus on. So you double down and work even harder - trying your best to do a little bit of everything...
...but trying to do a little bit of everything is the route to overwhelm, stress and burnout.
The good news is... you DON'T have to do everything!
In fact, trying to do a little bit of everything will almost certainly make you LESS successful. Instead, you need a solid productivity system to help you pick the right things to spend your time on - those High Impact Tasks - so you can actually work LESS but achieve MORE!
The second reason is because, very often, the Low Impact Tasks feel more URGENT... You feel like you need to be available 24/7 on social media... You feel like you have to reply back to emails straight away... You feel like you need to jump straight on every small administrative task... And then there's all the 'urgent' life admin and household chores that need doing ASAP...
But the problem is, if you spend all your time attending to those 'urgent' but Low Impact Tasks, you'll NEVER find time to do your High Impact Tasks - the tasks that would actually move the dial... the tasks that would put REAL MONEY IN YOUR POCKET!
The truth is, without a solid productivity system in place, it's incredibly easy to spend almost ALL of your precious time on the WRONG THINGS.
Without a solid productivity system, it's easy to spend almost ALL of your precious time on shiny objects, timewasters, busy work and endless scrolling on social media.
And without a solid productivity system in place, there's a good chance you'll NEVER see the kind of success or income you've been hoping for...
So... should you just throw in the towel now? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Fixing this problem is actually surprisingly easy... all you need is for someone to show you the right steps...
SO WHAT'S THE SOLUTION?
The solution is a step-by-step productivity system which enables you to...
- Identify your True Goals: Decide what you actually want to achieve with your business – your own personal definition of success🎉
- Uncover your Most Impactful Tasks: Get clear on which out of all the possible tasks and activities you *could* be doing with your time will actually move the dial the most 😀
- Create your own personalized Yearly Action Plan: Develop a step-by-step roadmap for the next 12 months... so you know exactly what to spend your time on every single day, and so you can ensure that every hour of your precious work time is directly taking you one step closer to your goals (No more wasting time spinning your wheels🤩)
- Remove from your to do list all the tasks that will NOT help you achieve your True Goals: Finally ditch all the timewasters, busy work and Low Impact Tasks - FOR GOOD 🙌
- Put in place a system that makes it easy to consistently follow through on your action plan: So you finally start to make real progress on the things that truly matter to you 🥳
IN SHORT, THE SOLUTION IS PROFITABLE PRODUCTIVITY!
In Profitable Productivity, I'll teach you how to do all of this and much, much more!
But don't just take my word for it. Here's what my students are saying about the course...
"Before completing this course, I thought of myself as disorganised and frequently felt frustrated that I couldn’t seem to get as much done as other bloggers. I really struggled to prioritise the most impactful things that would move the needle in my business and could never seem to find the time to put a proper plan in place for the long term.
It turns out I’m not disorganised at all - I just needed to be shown the proper process for deciding what I truly want for my business, how to set long terms goals, then how to put steps in place to meet them.
But this is far, FAR from your average goal setting/productivity course. There is no fluff. EVERYTHING is broken down into granular detail. It’s not just about setting goals and putting time aside to reach them, but instead I was shown how to plan my year, month, week, day, even each HOUR in detail to make the very best use of my time.
A huge bonus was realising that there were so many things I was doing that really didn’t need to be done at all. When I looked at these tasks in detail I understood they didn’t align with the future I wanted for my blog, and I made the decision to stop doing them. Deciding what NOT to do was almost as beneficial as deciding what TO do, and the freedom in being able to say goodbye to those time wasting tasks was empowering.
I never thought I’d be that person who had their next 12 months planned out, but here I am! It feels so good to wake up each day, look at my daily plan in front of me and know with confidence that I am only doing tasks that will move my business forward.
I feel like I am back in control and I am (literally!) sleeping better at night. I now run my business instead of it running me.
Thank you Eb, this course is an absolute game changer."
- Natalie Battaglia, The Mindful Mocktail
"I thought I had been struggling with managing my time. But what Profitable Productivity revealed is that, ultimately, I’ve been struggling with my priorities. I had been prioritizing small, unsatisfying tasks that don’t move me in the direction of a profitable business or a satisfying life.
Eb’s course is exactly what she says it is: a roadmap to getting business (read: life) back on track. She delivers all this and more in clear, concise lessons and worksheets. The lessons are short, motivational, and easily digestible. The whole course is coherent and comprehensive. Utilizing Eb’s method is slowly but surely moving the volume up on the parts of my life that I want to cultivate and dialing back all the time-wasting (shiny object syndrome) distractions.
Thank you Eb, this course has been a game-changer!"
- Scott Blossom, Doctor Blossom
"If you are looking for a step-by-step way to get out of total overwhelm, then this is definitely the course for you. It really feels like Eb takes you by the hand and leads you to a more focused and organised way of running your business and life.
I have followed Eb for many years and have a few of her courses, so I already knew that this Profitable Productivity course would be of the same super high quality and value.
Where Eb shines with her courses is that she does an amazing amount of research and incorporates not only her views but also pulls from many proven sources that have been time-tested and, in the case of this course, science-backed.
The lessons are short, and they take you on a journey that builds on itself. So by dedicating only a small amount of time every day to work on each module, you will very quickly have a crystal clear plan to follow to actually start achieving those life-changing goals you really want to achieve. It really makes you think about what you want to achieve in your business and how to prioritise what is REALLY going to make the difference to your income and success. She also helps troubleshoot all those questions/pushbacks and emotions you will go through as you progress through the course. There is sooooo much goodness in this course - Eb really has covered everything.
What I also loved about this course is that she is not trying to sell you a productivity tool. Her system is not based on the latest fad tool that will be outdated in 6 months. Your precious time will be spent actually working on your goals rather than learning to use and manage a system.
This course literally has the potential to change your life if you take all the lessons and actually implement them into your daily life."
- Anna Younger, Twins & More
"This course has brought so much clarity! Instead of sitting in a fog wondering if I should focus on writing blog posts, creating products, or fixing my email list, I now have a workable plan for the rest of the year!"
- Sara Dennis, Classically Homeschooling
POOR PRODUCTIVITY IS COSTING YOU MONEY!
TIME is your most precious resource. Every minute wasted on unimportant tasks, procrastination, jumping on 'new shiny objects', getting distracted and trying to figure out what to do next, is a minute you could have spent working on something that would actually grow your business and bring in MORE MONEY!
But don't worry, I'm here to help!
If you're ready to unlock your true earning potential and start achieving the kind of success you've been hoping for, then Profitable Productivity is exactly what you need. Profitable Productivity is a COMPLETE PRODUCTIVITY SYSTEM, designed to help you get the most out of every minute you spend on your business...
But that's not all. By being MORE STRATEGIC WITH YOUR TIME, you can actually work LESS - but achieve MORE - and so have MORE TIME for everything else going on in your life.
Imagine having MORE TIME to spend with your family and friends, pursue your hobbies, or simply relax and recharge AND having MORE MONEY in your pocket... Who doesn't want that, right?
In this course, you will learn:
- Why TIME is not your real problem (and what is!)
- How to identify your TRUE GOALS and HIGHEST IMPACT TASKS
- Why S.M.A.R.T. goals are really DUMB (and what to do instead!)
- How to ensure that what you do on a day-to-day basis ACTUALLY ALIGNS with your TRUE GOALS
- The REAL secret to 'getting things done'
- How to OUTSOURCE WILLPOWER
- The true ‘opportunity cost’ of Low Impact Tasks (This one is SCARY!)
- How to see SOCIAL MEDIA for what it really is (Also scary!!)
- How to harness the power of ‘shiny object syndrome’ for good and practice 'positive procrastination' (Yep, that’s a real thing.)
- Why being unproductive is costing you MONEY!
Profitable Productivity is not like any productivity course you've seen before... It's not about productivity for productivity's sake, nor is it a jumble of random hacks, tips and techniques... which leave you feeling like you have MORE to do, not less 🙄🙄
It’s a COMPLETE PRODUCTIVITY SYSTEM specifically designed to help you EARN MORE, while WORKING LESS!
"One of the things I love most about this whole productivity system is that it's easy to trust that it's what I should be doing. Usually when I hear productivity advice, I need to spend time figuring out if it will work for me and then adapting it to what I need. But with this course I'm just doing everything Eb is telling me to do. I really like the explanations of why each thing makes you more productive, which helps my brain to accept it and just start doing it without question."
- Clara Carlson-Kirigin, Prometheus Editorial
"I've completed more meaningful work in the past month than I did in the previous four months combined since doing Eb's Profitable Productivity course. Was it magic? Nope, it was the power of having the support and framework to create my Yearly Action Plan and see exactly how my monthly actions tie to my most treasured goals, which certainly feels magical.
I had so many resources at my fingertips already, but I never knew what to work on next, and I was constantly getting side swept by the next shiny object that caught my attention . I was feeling stuck stuck STUCK, spinning my wheels while I stressfully tried to whack-a-mole my way forward.
Profitable Productivity has given me traction to actually accomplish the things I want to. The course helped me create a task and time management foundation to build on, so even though I'm still working at implementing some of the recommended practices, my work time is still far more directed and impactful than in the past. I'm feeling hopeful and motivated to see my growth over this coming year. Thanks Eb!! "
- Alissa Zorn, Bounce Back Parenting
"I have bought many courses over the approximately 4 years of blogging and I have to say unequivocally that Eb Gargano's Profitable Productivity is hands-down the best course I have ever taken.
It's so easy to chase the shiny objects. And boy are there a lot of them in blogging. Everyone is selling something and it's easy to get caught up in what you see on social media. I've attended so many masterclasses promising that I'd learn something and ended up being nothing but thinly veiled sales pitches and empty promises.
Profitable Productivity delivers. It's not magic... you still have to do the work but there is a magic in the method for sure. I was worried that it wouldn't be actionable and I can tell you that one month in using the methods and strategies in the course, I have gotten more focused PROFITABLE work done in my business. Eb is a master teacher and the way she leads you through the course is effortless. You want to finish it. I took her advice and did it in about 3 days and I didn't want it to end!
If you have the opportunity to do one thing for your business and yourself, take this course. And then do the work. Thanks Eb!"
- Lori Calabro Murphy, Josie + Nina
"I thoroughly enjoyed this practical course. Eb has structured this program in an easy-to-follow way which makes it really easy to get your productivity systems in place. Her reassurance to get laser focussed on what you want to achieve and to refrain from getting distracted by other things has been truly helpful in reducing feelings of overwhelm and disappointment that I can’t do it all.
Her system of identifying the most important things (with accompanying examples and templates) has been life changing for me, and encouraged me to think about a longer-term view of what I want to achieve (realising that I can’t do it all now!). She also provides practical guidance to help get your emails in order, best manage your day and identify the low vs high value and money generating tasks.
Profitable productivity is a great name for this program. What sets it apart from others is the focus on doing things that matter and that importantly, will drive your bottom line (and then delegating, reducing or removing the rest). If you are considering doing this program I highly recommend it. You can learn at your own pace and in my experience I found almost every question I had was answered throughout the modules and in the FAQs."
- Laura Jenkins, In The Blend
"As is the case with most bloggers, my production style and work methods were very scattered. On a typical day, I found myself chasing at least a dozen different goals and ideas. It was physically and mentally exhausting. It was not only hurtful to my own health, but my relationship with my family and friends as well- I was just too busy! The interesting thing was, I didn't even realize just how disorganized I was in my blogging. That is until I took the Profitable Productivity course.
What I love about the profitable productivity course was Eb really helped me to define where my time SHOULD be spent and how it should be used. Time is precious after all. She also helped me to recognize what was having the biggest impact on my business, and where my focus needed to be. I was led through exercises to define my big goals and where I wanted to be in the future. By clearly defining my future self, it helped me to better discipline myself to stay focused on what matters most.
I now have a spreadsheet I work from to keep myself in check and I refer back to it daily to ensure I don't let myself get carried away with the next shiny object. I think we all know what that feels like in the blogging space. Each month, I check in and set my intentions and priorities for that month. This is narrowed down to the big goals I want to get checked off and accomplished. I feel confident this has set me on the path to being better than I ever have been in my niche!
If you are floundering as I was, this course is for you. It is a simple, practical approach to defining who you are/will be as a blogger. This pragmatic perspective is going to help me become the blogger I want to become and have the success I want to have!"

WHY PROFITABLE PRODUCTIVITY IS DIFFERENT…
Ever read a productivity book or taken a productivity course and come away more overwhelmed than when you started?

Profitable Productivity is a complete productivity system that's been specifically designed to help you earn more while working less. Here are just a few of the key features of the course:
- Designed for bloggers and online business owners: The course is tailored specifically to the unique productivity challenges faced by bloggers and online business owners. You won't find generic, cookie-cutter productivity advice that doesn't apply to your situation here.

- A complete productivity system: Unlike other productivity courses and books that provide a collection of random hacks and tips, Profitable Productivity provides a step-by-step productivity system that you can apply to all aspects of your business and life.
- Videos AND transcripts: You asked, I delivered! All the core units of the course have a video, for those of you who prefer watching AND a full transcript for those of you who prefer reading... no matter what your learning style, you'll love this course!
- Designed to get results FAST! Depending on how fast you work and how much time you can give it, this course can take as little as 3-4 days to complete and you should be seeing results from this course withing 1 month of completing it.
- A course that keeps on giving: Better still, this course will keep on delivering months and even years after completing it! And with lifetime access, any time you want a refresher you can dip back into the course and get even more out of it.
"While I have tried several different methods to be more productive with my time for both business and personal, nothing has resonated with me as much as this course. I have been able to get so much more done in a shorter period of time based on her suggestions and methods. After just one month, I have completely changed how my work flow is set up and have my year planned out with projects that will increase my revenue. I can’t believe how much this has improved my productivity and freed up time for me to spend with my family."
- Barbara Curry, Butter & Baggage
"Profitable Productivity is like following a map - a treasure map to supercharged productivity . The course material and assignments are clearly explained and logically organized. It's such a beneficial course that I kept thinking about other areas of my life where I could apply facets of the system . I tend to be a big ideas person but struggle to implement ideas into action because I get bogged down in overwhelm, or sidetracked by unnecessary tasks. This course cuts through the fog with actionable steps to go from ordinary to extraordinary productivity. "
- Kim Vervain
BUT WHAT EXACTLY DO I GET?
If you asked that question, you are exactly like me. Every sales page I land on, I always scroll straight down to the bit that tells me what's actually in the course!
So this bit's for you, my kindred-spirit...
MODULE 1: YOUR BIG WHY
In this module we'll look at why you need to start with the end in mind... because until you know where you're headed, how can you know which tasks and activities will get you there the quickest?
Without this step, you might get quicker and more efficient... but you won't get more productive!
MODULE 2: THE QUASI-MAGICAL YEARLY ACTION PLAN
A goal without a plan is just a wish, right? Once you know your ultimate goal, you need to get really specific about exactly what you are going to do to get there.
In Module 2 you'll begin the process of creating your very own 12 Month Action Plan - a step-by-step roadmap to get you from where you are today, to where you want to be in 12 months' time.
I'll show you how to use the Action Priority Matrix to identify your Most Impactful Tasks... and I'll give you a really simple trick to massively reduce overwhelm and stress. (You won't believe how simple it is, but it's scientifically backed and it really works!)
MODULE 3: CREATING MONTHLY ACTION PLANS
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! A year is a long time. In order to make your year a success, you need to get a whole lot more granular!
In this module we take your 12 month plan and break it down... so you have a specific month-by-month plan for the whole year.
And then we take Month 1 and break it down even further into super specific sub-tasks... plus I give you an insanely effective way to avoid the dreaded 'shiny object syndrome'!
MODULE 4: DESIGN YOUR PERFECT WEEK
So, you have your Big Picture Goals, you have your Yearly Action Plan and you have your Monthly Action Plans… but none of that helps AT ALL if you then don’t stick to your plans! And that's what this module is all about. In Module 4 I'll give you some clever tricks to help you set every week up for success.
MODULE 5: THE CRAZY AMAZING POWER OF DAILY PLANNING
Did you know that the order you do your tasks in each day can have a HUGE impact on your productivity?
In this module I'm sharing my ninja tips for effective daily planning - plus what to do when things don't go to plan.
(Because we all live in the real world, not the pretend perfect world that so many productivity resources assume exists!)
MODULE 6: FOCUS WORK SESSIONS
This module is one of the most important of the whole course. Why? Because this is where the magic happens! Focus Work Sessions are when you'll do your MIT-related tasks. These are the tasks that will really move your business forward. These are the tasks that are going to actually get you to your goals. These are the tasks that are actually going to make you MONEY!
Get your Focus Work Sessions right and everything else will more-or-less just fall into place. (Assuming you've done all the prep work up to now, that is!) But get this wrong and basically everything up till now was pointless.
MODULE 7: ADMIN SESSIONS
Up to now, we've mainly focused on your Most Impactful Tasks and how to plan them into your schedule so they actually get done. But of course, there's a whole boatload of tasks that are not MIT-related, High Impact Tasks, which move you closer to your goals. They are the routine, 'dull but necessary', Admin Tasks.
In this module, we are going to take a deeper look at what to do with these Admin Tasks. (As well as what the opportunity cost is of prioritizing admin tasks, like social media and email, over you Most Impactful Tasks - warning this part is SCARY!)
MODULE 8: JUST DO IT!
Ultimately this course is NOT a course about planning - it's a course about doing! And that's what this module is about.
The course up to this point should take you about 3-4 days to complete. But the real work starts here. You have everything you need to start putting this whole Profitable Productivity System into practice. Now it's time to actually get started.
But the beautiful thing about this course is after the first 3-4 days, you'll have a complete step-by-step action plan for the whole of the next 12 months. So all you need to focus on is Step 1. You don't need to worry about anything else, because you know that everything else will be taken care of in due course... and you know that every step you take is taking you one step closer to those Big Picture Goals!
You'll no longer need to worry about what to do next or waste time deciding what to do next, because it's all right there in your plan - meaning you can focus all your efforts and energies on actually doing the work and enjoying the results of greater productivity... and a more profitable business!

WHY PRODUCTIVITY MATTERS SO MUCH...
But maybe you are wondering... 'Yeah, I don't really need a course on productivity. That's not my biggest problem right now.'
I would argue that, unless you are EARNING MORE THAN YOU NEED and are SUPER HAPPY with your work/life balance, PRODUCTIVITY IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM RIGHT NOW.
Productivity affects everything.
True productivity is not about tinkering around the edges with a few 'hacks', it's about taking a look at everything you are doing and asking:
'Am I using my time in the best possible way?'
There are probably hundreds of things on your to do list right now. But here's something important that you NEED to wrap your head around, if you want to be TRULY productive...
YOU CAN'T DO EVERYTHING!
There's a really good chance that you have a lot of really GOOD things on your to do list, and it can be very easy to look at it and think 'but I want to do it all!' The trouble is that that is almost certainly going to be PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.
In fact, it's precisely THAT way of thinking which leads to you never actually getting anything done. Because if you try to do a little bit of everything, you'll end up flitting from project to project, starting a lot of things and actually achieving very little!
As Gino Wickman (author of Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business) says:
'Remember, less is always more. Most businesses make the mistake of trying to accomplish too many objectives per year. By trying to get everything done all at once, they end up accomplishing very little and feeling frustrated.'
Or, in the words of Dr Benjamin Hardy in his brilliant book Willpower Doesn't Work:
'Success isn’t that difficult; it merely involves taking 20 steps in a singular direction. [The problem is] most people take one step in 20 different directions.'
That's why 'productivity' in its truest sense is so important. It makes you stop and think:
- What are my big picture goals?
- Is what I am currently doing taking me closer to my goals?
- Am I trying to go in 20 different directions all at once?
- Is what I am doing right now the best possible use of my time?
- Could I earn more money in less time by spending my time working on different things?
- What should I stop doing so I can spend more time on the things that really move the dial?
The problem for most people is they haven't done this high level strategic thinking, nor do they have the strategies needed to turn their goals into a solid action plan... and so what they do on a day-to-day basis bears absolutely no relation whatsoever to the direction they actually want to go in!
They spend the majority of their time and energies on Low Impact Activities that will not help them get to where they want to be. They feel constantly stressed and overwhelmed - because they are trying to go in 20 different directions all at once. And the tasks that would truly move the dial, the tasks that would actually help them earn more, be successful and have a good work/life balance are the very tasks which languish at the bottom of the to do list and NEVER GET DONE!
If you want to earn more, work less, feel less stressed and overwhelmed, fall back in love with your business, and actually start achieving - and then smashing right through - your goals... then you NEED Profitable Productivity!
"With Profitable Productivity Eb has delivered yet another exceptionally useful and productive - haha - course for those of us invested in taking our blogging careers forward.
The Yearly Action Plan was a massive shake-up for me - it seems so simple when you follow Eb's instructions, and yet it is not anything I could have done by myself. I feel like I have shed so much load from my shoulders just from this part of the course. I've also become far more laser-focused on my goals, and the tasks I need to complete to help me achieve them. It has also helped me achieve some clarity in my non-blogging goals as well.
Eb nails the barriers that so many of us face - I do suffer from Shiny Object Syndrome, and now use that term every time something new pops up in my email, or online; "It's a shiny object and will not help you - just ignore it". Understanding this has enabled me to simply unsubscribe from so many emails that offer lots of lovely ideas, but then end up taking up so much time when I could be working on my important tasks
The fact that Eb is so accessible through the Facebook group is another plus for this course. Especially if you are an overthinker like me, and need some reassurance.
I admit to being an Eb junkie. I love the way she presents her online courses - she takes you gently by the hand and leads you to clarity on the far side. And this particular course is essential if you want to invest your blogging time wisely,. and grow your business. After all, failing to plan, is planning to fail."

"Profitable Productivity has been one of the best courses I have done. I love your style and the way each module is set in bite sized pieces with assignments to do at various stages.
As a result, I have the beginnings of a Yap, Monthly MIT's and Daily planner, which I started implementing today. As a result of my dedicating Focus Work time, it meant I can log in and do admin and social media early than originally planned. Coffee breaks and lunch breaks were exactly that and not opportunities to check my stats, and Facebook etc."
- Lynn Hill, Tasty Bakes Kitchen
"As a homeschooling, homesteading, stay at home mom to 3 (almost 4) that also works part time apart from my business, time is of the essence. Every minute counts and I constantly felt like my wheels were spinning. I wasn't getting anywhere fast.
Profitable Productivity helped me focus in on the essential parts of my business, organize my day to day for success, and put off the meaningless tasks that weren't going to help me get to my goals. As a creative person who has a million ideas all the time, this course really helped me reign in on what was most important.
Even though life is going to get busier and crazier, I'm confident Eb has helped me set up my business for success and be productive even with my jam packed schedule."

"For most of my working life I haven't had a problem with being productive. I prided myself on being effective and efficient.
For the first few years of blogging that continued, but recently I had a lot of family things to deal with that almost completely stalled me for nearly a year and aren't going away. Trying to pick up the threads was difficult and for the first time I found it a real challenge to organise my time and fit in my blog. I felt like my life wasn't my own and my time was being hijacked. I was overwhelmed with everything to do, not knowing what to do first.
One of the things I hadn't done was to complete a couple of courses I bought and I'd decided not to buy any more until I finished what I had. I saw the email for Eb's Profitable Productivity course when I was on holiday and deleted it. After a couple of days and another email, I figured this was the course to get me sorted out. I bought the course, started it on holiday and finished it in a week.
Thank goodness! Now I have a method to work out my priorities, ditch what isn't important, and plan my time. I've got back to working on my blog, scheduling other commitments into manageable chunks, barring emergencies, and have already completed my first monthly goal.
Best of all, I feel calmer and more in control and I'm confident that I'm finally moving towards completing the goals that really matter to me."
- Susie Collings, Everyday Cooks
"I’ve long been a fan of Eb’s tips and advice which are always practical as well as motivational, so was excited to learn she was launching a new course, Profitable Productivity. With an apparently infinite number of things I could, should and felt like I ought to do to grow my blogging business, it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed or find yourself working all hours, so I was hoping for some helpful insights into how to manage this without burn-out. And it didn’t disappoint.
Each module helps you focus on what your end goals really are, as well as how to achieve them, clearing away the fluff and the busy work in the process. But that’s only the first part, with concrete steps on how to plan your days, down to the hour, in order to achieve the goals. Following them definitely didn’t come naturally, but within even the first couple of weeks, I could see how they transformed my working practices and the results I was getting.
With troubleshooting sections that tackle common issues, plus a supportive Facebook group for the course, it feels more like you have a friend on your side guiding you through rather than an impossibly high set of standards to live up to (which case sometimes be the case with other similar courses!)
Quick to work through, it’s also easy to go back through the different modules if you find yourself slipping at any stage of the process. With new routines in place, as well as a centralised place to keep my plans and goals for the year ahead, I already feel more in control of my business, rather than the other way around! I’d highly recommend this course to any blogger who feels they’re working flat out but not getting the results they want."

"I am totally loving this course!
I could never convince myself to do SMART goals because I always found them so overwhelming and unrealistic/unreachable.
Being able to sit down and think through MIT's in small achievable steps is HUGE. Letting go of all the overwhelming millions of things I'm constantly seeing as "must-do's" for bloggers is a huge weight of my shoulders. I can still do them if I want to but now have an actionable plan. A step ladder.
Thank you Eb"

"Even as a full-time blogger who's pretty well-adjusted to maximizing my productivity, I still had a-ha moments and actionable takeaways from Eb's course, Profitable Productivity.
Since taking the course, I am now more skilled at organizing each day on a more micro hour-by-hour level and ordering tasks by their profitability -- not just crossing things off my to-do list. It also helped me take my list of yearly goals and think more deeply about which order to tackle them and why. These changes directly impact my earning potential, so they couldn't be more important to consider.
In Profitable Productivity, Eb also excels at providing solutions to all the common roadblocks and challenges you may likely face in becoming a more productive blogger. So, if you're sitting there thinking, "Yeah, but..." trust me, she will help you overcome all of that.
It's a "must" for bloggers who struggle with doing it all in our jack-of-all-trades profession and/or bloggers getting stuck in the time-sucking tasks that DON'T impact the bottom line and wondering how exactly to get from point A to point B in their businesses. And, I think even those who are more advanced in managing their time, as I was, will still walk away with new strategies to implement and make more money since it's SO comprehensive."
- Julianne Jayson Buonocore, The Literary Lifestyle
"Profitable Productivity has changed the way I approach my blog. I now know what I'm trying to achieve, and what I'm going to do each month to get there. I didn't realise how much I needed the clarity a yearly plan provides.
I found it easy to apply the mix of theory, action and inspiration to my blog with the included templates. Some of the activities made me question my beliefs about different activities. While challenging, I now know which are my high value and low priority tasks so I now start blogging time by prioritising the tasks that will make the most impact on my goals.
So what were the results of this new approach? In the first month, I wrote and scheduled 16 blog posts. Something I had not achieved before in fifteen years of blogging.I was more motivated and focused because I knew these posts were an important step towards my goal.
I'm confident that the clarity and yearly plan I've developed through Profitable Productivity means I will achieve my ultimate goal, which previously only felt like a dream."
- Kate Davis, Dark Tea
"I've been on Eb's email list for a while and always found her newsletters super informative and helpful, so when she came out with a productivity course I was immediately intrigued.
The course has really changed how I get my work done, both day-to-day and monthly. While I had already been doing a variation of some of the things Eb mentions in the course (like mindset work and focused work sessions), the format and thought process that the course lays out is very different than anything I've seen before. I've heard different things here and there about making sure you do certain tasks first, but the way Eb put it all together is unique.
I have been much more productive since starting the course. I find that I'm not only able to get more tasks done, but also focus on the tasks that are most going to move my business forward and make me money!
Some things the course helped me push through and do - that I had been really putting off - include:
- connect with others in my niche to grow our email lists (which is happening!)
- create an email nurture sequence for people that sign up through a general form on my site,
- create a landing page and sales copy for an old ebook I wanted to sell again, and (maybe most importantly)
- condense and reduce the tasks that just aren't making me money.
If you are struggling with productivity and profits, this course can help you get back on track."
- Taryn Solie, Hot Pan Kitchen
"I have always been quite organised, but as a blogger with multiple online ventures, as well as working part time and being a parent, I knew I lacked focus and also suffer massively from shiny object syndrome!
Profitable Productivity has given me an easy step by step approach to prioritise and focus upon one venture at a time, all the while having a structure in place so that new ideas can be dealt with as they arise.
This course goes deeper than you will expect for a productivity course into the whole mindset of your big “why” and I was challenged to think whether the actions I was doing each day were the most impactful - there were certainly a lot of “a-ha!” moments for me.
Another big takeaway from the course was how to tackle the admin side of things and the approach I have adapted from the course has definitely made a noticeable difference already.
Each module is broken down into step by step units and resources so it is easy to work through in small chunks at your own pace.
I would recommend Profitable Productivity to any online business owner who feels like they are overwhelmed or continuously spinning their wheels - you will come out the other side with a clear action plan to help you move forward and succeed."
- Melissa Shaw, Skinny Spending
"The last few weeks have been exciting for me. I have participated in an excellent productivity course that has changed how I look at my day, week, month, and year.
This course has easy-to-digest models. Initially, walking you through mindset and easing you into action. With clear, easy-to-follow examples, I found myself inspired, motivated, and equipped with invaluable tools for success.
Starting from where you want to go and working backward is brilliant and a new concept for me. Adapting to and using the skillset taught by Eb has had a tremendous impact on my productivity.
Its unwavering commitment to cultivating a positive, growth-oriented mindset sets this course apart.
Doing a brain dump and having the insight to identify and recognize my most important tasks is excellent.
The work in the course allowed me to actively apply the concepts and see immediate results in my personal and work life. This planning style has freed up more personal time and is moving me closer to my long-term and short-term goals.
This productivity course is an absolute game-changer. My productivity has been elevated to new levels thanks to this transformative experience.
Suppose you want to unlock your full potential, achieve remarkable results, and lead a more fulfilling life. In that case, I wholeheartedly recommend investing in this course. Trust me; it's worth every penny!”
