Dietmar is a busy self-employed freelancer and owner of an LLC in the software programming industry.

He’s a lifelong learner, so he bought the Morning & Evening Routines Course and quickly got interested in the Lifehack Methodology. 

The Problem

Even though he was his own boss, he still felt “stuck.” He also had many home responsibilities with his kids and family.

“My #1 problem is I’m stuck in the rat race. I have no integrated system (different lists on different systems), no clear plan to follow. I need to balance out long term projects with my clients and also manage the minutiae of everyday life.”

When he learned about the 60-day Lifehack Bootcamp, he was immediately intrigued because of the problems he was facing with his workflow. 

He knew this was a problem he couldn’t stand to stay “stuck” in for another year.

The “Before”

Dietmar joined the 60-day Lifehack Bootcamp and came in with ambitious goals for his business and lifestyle. 

“In 12 months, I’d love to have 10K a month in passive income. I also want to have the option of working as a digital nomad with my daughters (e.g. living in Tenerife learning Spanish and taking salsa classes.) I’d work from home a lot and only need to see clients if I choose to, so creating a digital nomad lifestyle would be totally possible. I just loved travelling with my daughters. 

I haven’t created the ‘success’ I want (yet) because I need to work on my systems and get better organised. I want systems to track my income, get employees to help, outsource myself and take more of a passive role in my business. 

My values are Clarity, Freedom, Impact and Growth. I feel like the Bootcamp will really help create time freedom to increase my impact and continue to grow. I know I can add move value to my clients, my friends and mentor other developers too. I can also just have more time to think!

Staying stuck where I am 12 months from now is just not an option.”

I loved coaching Dietmar in the 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp because he had an incredible self-awareness of what was blocking him from the life he wanted. 

Here’s the list he sent to me at the start of his Bootcamp with the specific areas he wanted to break through: 

  1. Staying focused. I have made progress in the last few months but I can be better. 
  2. I do not have the right level of accountability. 
  3. Saying NO when I need to. 
  4. Having a system where I consolidate everything I need to do. 
  5. Tactical on how to execute on my defined goals. 
  6. Getting more organised. 
  7. Having a picture view of a project. Seeing all the components of a project. 

The Results

Dietmar focused in on these problem areas in his Bootcamp, and was able to make a huge shift in his workflow. 

As his coach, I can tell you that his ability to absorb the content, be present for the coaching, and actively seek out feedback made him a star student.

In his post-Bootcamp survey, he ranked the improvement the Bootcamp has had on his life as a 10/10

He says he has achieved his Bootcamp goal, and now works just 6 hours a week, with his income coming in passively.

More importantly, he said he would be seeing a 600% return on the amount he invested in the next year alone. 

“This totally changed my life. I learned a ton of great stuff: the right mindset about time and optimization, the life map as a guiding compass to your goal, the leveraged actions, techniques for reducing cognitive load and email overload, …. TONS of things.

I simply stopped doing time consuming tasks and stopped being available all the time. I’m moving towards more passive income rapidly.

You can see that the material has gone through MULTIPLE iterations. It is based on a ton of experience in helping people to level up their game. It considers the research and implements it in a very practical way with checklists, templates … all ready to use and to adapt to your needs. 

Finally the right course to take me where I wanted to go. THANK YOU. Changed my life … and will continue to do. Because it changed my thinking… and I changed my actions.”


If you want to have a life where you can have it all – the career, the marriage, the family, the health, the fulfillment– without having to DO it all, then the 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp could be for you.
