Master your life and business workflows with Notion

You’ve gone down the Notion rabbit-hole but quickly got overwhelmed. You binge-watched how-to videos on YouTube for hours instead of writing those blog posts you had planned.

You see the potential of this powerful, all-in-one productivity tool, but don’t know how to fully harness it.

Maybe you tried loading some of the pre-made templates into your account, and got frustrated because they’re not built for your use cases, and they’re not useful enough on their own. They’re not part of a bigger more integrated system.

Any of these sound familiar?

  • You feel scattered across a ton of different tools and tech
  • Things often feel like they’re “falling through the cracks
  • You waste a ton of time trying to remember where you’ve saved your files
  • Your Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote or local files are a mess
  • You feel overwhelmed, like you can’t keep up with your obligations
  • You don’t have a consistent system for saving files, or tracking your tasks
  • You don’t have standard documentation or templates
  • You make lists of goals and ideas at the beginning of the year… that you never revisit again

If you find yourself feeling scattered and spread across different platforms like Asana, Trello, Evernote, Google Drive, Dropbox, as well as paper planners and journaling apps, I promise, there is a better way.

Notion offers you a way to unify your projects, files, ideas, and tasks all in one easy-to-find place.

It’s the app I use every single day to manage client projects, do big strategic planning, daily journaling, task management, and build my second brain; everything has a place, and nothing gets lost.


If you don’t already have well-established systems, processes, and routines already in place, you’re likely to recreate the same dysfunctional patterns from your old tools within Notion. You’ve got to design your system in order for Notion to truly shine.

For the last year I’ve been consulting with individuals and teams, helping them use Notion to build out their life and business productivity systems and workflows. As part of this work, I’ve seen the most common challenges, hiccups, and missing pieces that most entrepreneurs and teams struggle with when trying to move their operations to Notion.
