From the outside looking in… Kathryn had it made.

She was the head of business development management for a big European food brand. She had great customers and an awesome team. She was the primary source of income in her household.

The problem

And yet… She was completely (desperately!) miserable.

Her boss was a tyrant. He was flooding her life with negativity, and had made her (and other members of her team) cry on more than one occasion.

Even though she is a strong woman… It was eroding her confidence and belief in herself.

She needed out.

But everyone thought she was crazy for wanting to leave.

“You’re comfortable! Don’t risk that because of one mean guy…”
“Unless you have a competitive job offer, it’d be irresponsible to quit…”
“Focus on your own positivity, don’t pay attention to him!”

She knew deep down that if she didn’t change her circumstances – and fast – she’d drown in his toxicity.

She came to us with a simple idea:

“I want to transition out of this company, and into consulting for small businesses.”

What she did

So Kathryn joined our 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp.

Over the course of 8 weeks, she got deliberate with her actions, and came up with an exit strategy.

First, she focused in on her core productivity system. She redesigned how she got things done from the ground up, and implemented new practices to get herself clear on her top priorities.

Then, she used her new systems to start getting work done faster, which freed up her time to start her solo consulting practice.

Within 8 months, she said goodbye to a job that had held her back for an entire decade, and struck out on her own as a consultant.

20 months ago I was a stressed executive responsible for huge turnover, working for a boss who was the pits… 

Fast forward to today – after taking part in the 60 day Bootcamp… I am my own boss!!! I have a consulting company and am working on designing my ideal life.


The result

Today that old boss and his abuse are FAR in the rearview mirror. She has built a successful business with an ideal partner.

As her coach, I can tell you that her willingness to push herself, absorb all feedback, and show up for herself made her a rockstar student. 

In her post-Bootcamp survey, she ranked the improvement the Bootcamp has had on her life as a 10/10.

She says she saves an average of an hour a day just as a result of the systems she built inside the program. That’s 5+ extra hours a week to work on her consultancy!

More importantly, she said she got a 5x return on the amount she invested in the program. 

And best yet – she believes in herself again. She knows her worth.

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.
