When we met Jenn, her life was a disaster. The last few years had shaken her to her core!  

She got a divorce, was hating her job, and just had this gnawing feeling that something bad was about to happen.

She found herself freaking out about things she used to feel in control of, and dropping the ball all over the place.

She needed to figure out how to support herself before she fell into a hole that would be too deep to climb out of.

Her biggest concern was maintaining a healthy dynamic with her son.

She was worried that being excessively stressed and busy was negatively affecting the way he was experiencing her, and wanted to spend more dedicated time with him and not feel her mind wandering to everything else she had on her plate.

Jenn went all-in during our 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp.

Her big goal was to be able to work with one of her “hero organizations” by the time of graduation.

She pushed against her fear and negativity and started reaching out to the companies she loved and admired…

… and one of those companies got back to her with a big fat YES!

She landed a job at the forefront of her dream industry. And as a bonus – she got the ability to work from home.

Now she gets to have her cake and eat it too – working her dream job and spending amazing quality time with her son.

We share a lot of epic success stories with you guys – usually of people who have done massive overhauls of their lives and got big results.

But what about those of you out there who are doing “just fine”?

What about people who are comfortable, but feel a gnawing to do more…

Agatha worked at a bank. It was a great job – she made enough, enjoyed it enough.

But she’d always dreamt of being an entrepreneur.

She had the perfect idea… but hadn’t taken the plunge.

In other words – she just needed a kick in the pants!

She came to our 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp for that “kick in the rear” – and boy did she get it!

In just 2 months she bought a truck, hired groomers, and was collecting MONEY. Her side business was finally off the ground.

Today, Agatha is still a rockstar with her current employer – but she’s also making $20,000 a month from her side hustle.

Agatha used our bootcamp to FORCE herself to step up.

What would it look like if someone came and forced YOU to live up to your full potential?

Sean is a manager for one of the largest animal shelters in Canada.

He’s not only responsible for the well-being of all of the animals that come through the doors, but for a team of more than 10 employees and countless volunteers.

It’s a high-intensity line of work where lives are on the line, but he wouldn’t change it for the world. (We need more folks like this!)

But in pursuit of saving lives, he was sacrificing his sanity. He had hollowed himself out through constantly putting everyone’s needs in front of his own.

He loved his career, but wasn’t enjoying his life. He was in the thick of massive burnout.

It was November 2017 when I first watched a Lifehack Bootcamp video on YouTube. It was about the F.A.S.T. Time Mastery framework – and after watching a couple of preview videos, the price for the course (now available for members of Lifehack Tribe) was ridiculously affordable given what it promised. I signed up and watched the F section before I went to bed that night!

Within ten days, I was well onto the “T” section – and began what was pitched as “a week of time tracking” to find out where my time went. After all, the course promised to get me back TEN hours of my time and by tracking where it went, I could decide, next time, if I want to invest or not. It was a habit that stuck and the week of time tracking turned into a six-week measure until December 31, 2017.

He went on to take our 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp, and almost immediately started making massive changes to his life.

He finally saw how much time he WASN’T spending on himself.

He wasn’t exercising, had very little time in his life for play. He was in complete imbalance.

Sean’s biggest challenge coming into our community was that he had lost faith in planning ahead. He used to love checklists and planning, but the more times he showed up for work only to have those lists pushed aside as he focused on putting out fires, the more discouraged he became.

During his time in the 60-Day Bootcamp, he rediscovered the power of planning ahead, getting organized, and creating solid routines.

Time tracking has transformed the approach I take to life. I don’t wait for it to come to me but rather make use of my God-given gifts of choice and will that propel me toward being my very best self each and every day.

It had such a profound impact on him that his husband took notice as well.

Now, the two of them use Asana together and have incorporated a lot of Lifehack Bootcamp methods – like pre-planning their grocery shopping and meals – into their home life!

How amazing is that?!

When we met Aiden, he was being pulled in a million directions.

He was a virtual assistant and business consultant for artists and creatives that work in the digital space, as well as a creative himself.

Though he had been working remotely for years, he was really starting to feel like he wasn’t fully feeling the benefits of having such a flexible career.

“I felt like a chicken with my head cut off – both at work and with my passion projects. I was constantly stressed out, and not feeling like I was making progress anywhere – because I was just too busy to see it or enjoy any of it.”

He felt unsure about the direction his life and career seemed to be headed in, but felt incapable of making any decisions around it.

He hopped on a call with one of our assistant coaches Freda – and immediately found clarity on things he’d been struggling with.

If this much progress can happen in a 10 minute call,” he asked himself, “what could the full bootcamp do for me?

He joined our 60-Day Lifehack Bootcamp in desperation.

Nowadays, Aiden – who struggled with anxiety and used to start nearly every work day in a panic – feels calmer than ever.

He works with his “dream clients”, gets paid premium rates, and lives in the city of his dreams. His stress levels have all but evaporated.

He’s even been able to blend his career with his passion project – something he never even conceived as possible before.

One small shift in his mindset changed his entire life.

Conventional wisdom teaches us that in order to be successful, we have to out-work the competition.

We’re told that working ourselves to the bone will eventually pay off.

But what if that’s just not true?

What if conventional wisdom isn’t so WISE?

Jessa and her family lived in Brooklyn. Both her and her husband were a part of the overworked-and-underslept culture.

She had a dream of running an online business, but was struggling to get it off the ground – mostly because didn’t have the time or energy needed to grow the business.

That’s why she joined our 60-Day Breakthrough Bootcamp in late 2016. Jessa decided to level up her game, and create enough time and focus to turn her side hustle into a full-time career.

While working the Lifehack Method process, she and her husband made a completely counter-intuitive decision:  They would move their family to the Caribbean.

Talk about the OPPOSITE of conventional wisdom! Aren’t you supposed to struggle and suffer while you build your business?

But Jessa found a solution that actually made WAY more sense than conventional wisdom: moving to a lower cost country effectively gave her a runway to get her business off the ground, even as the family lived the good life!

Now, not only has her online business taken off… but check this out 👇

“My success means we can actually go BACK to Brooklyn and live even BIGGER lives there (even with the extra expense). And we’re keeping our home here on the islands. Now we get to lived the “best of both worlds” option – without breaking myself.”

Thank you Jessa, for showing us that there are more solutions out there than conventional wisdom would lead us to believe.

Alexis left her entire career to purchase and run a handful of children’s haircut shops. 

After growing her 5 salons she had the opportunity to buy the entire Franchise… 

… At first it was momentous and exciting, but pretty soon she started to feel trapped in her work.

She had inherited a stable business with a lot of potential, but very little structure. She knew she needed processes and procedures in place to ensure the success of the franchise.


But where was she going to find the TIME to build those systems?

She already felt like she had no life; no time for the things that mattered the most (like her daughter’s water-polo games).

Instead of scaling her business, she was just scaling her overwhelm.


Her question is probably your question:  “How do I find the time to work ON my business when I’m always working IN my business?”

Alexis joined our 60-Day Breakthrough Bootcamp with a goal to create systems that would enable her business to run efficiently without her micromanaging it. 

The results speak for themselves: Alexis just recently opened the 108th store in her franchise! 

Her franchise is on the Inc. 500 list as one of the fastest growing franchises, and is now the #1 Children’s Hair Salon in the world! 

How incredible is that?!  All from 28 stores.

Wanna know something even MORE incredible? She created enough time to do all of this even while she coached her daughter’s water-polo team! 

Talk about a super-mom!

We have a tendency to want to take shortcuts.

Don’t get me wrong – there’s nothing wrong with taking the shortest path to success! 
But when optimization turns into cutting corners… it’s a surefire way to get stuck in reactive modeShort cuts are not the answer to working smarter not harder!

Take it from Tim, a well-known attorney.

He had reached a ceiling on growing his business. He couldn’t for the life of him figure out how to break through. He thought maybe if he just worked more – pushed himself further – the breakthrough would come. He felt like his time was constantly wasted chasing “busy work”.

He took the leap and joined our 60-Day Breakthrough Bootcamp.

Tim knew that working with us meant tackling his tendency to get stuck in busy work. He’d have to sit down, reflect, plan ahead, and stick to those plansAnd as soon as he stopped creating his own chaos – the breakthrough came.

In just the last few months, him and his employees have created over 100 new SOPs!! 😱 


Tim was able to franchise his business, creating huge revenue upside for his business!

And the cherry on top?

Creating systems, getting organized, and staying focused made him a better manager. Not only was he having more fun leading his team – his employees were having more fun working for him!

Talk about a win-win.

Oftentimes, we get clients that come to us who are very self-aware. They’ve read the books, participated in other courses, maybe even coached with other people in the industry. But nothing had worked.

Dietmar was one of those clients.

He was a self-employed freelancer and owner of a software programming company. And even though he was his own boss, he felt stuck. He was spread way too thin, and getting no results.

He joined our 60-Day Breakthrough Bootcamp hoping to get focused.

In our first coaching session, we talked about the importance of trimming the fat out of his business – focusing his efforts on the things that matter the absolute most. After that one session – Dietmar made €12,000 in ONE WEEK.

He went on to trim the fat – consolidate projects, create powerful systems, and effectively double his hourly wage. And most importantly for him, he found three extra hours EVERY DAY to spend time with his family.

“I am relaxed, my relationship to my girlfriend is getting deeper and more fulfilled by the minute. I have taken off Fridays. Having so much fun at the moment!”

How’s that for a massive win?!

2 KILLER Mistakes People Make While Planning Their Year https://lifehackbootcamp.com/2019/12/13/the-2-biggest-mistakes-people-make-while-planning-their-year/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-2-biggest-mistakes-people-make-while-planning-their-year https://lifehackbootcamp.com/2019/12/13/the-2-biggest-mistakes-people-make-while-planning-their-year/#respond Fri, 13 Dec 2019 22:06:07 +0000 https://lifehackbootcamp.com/?p=12785 The post 2 KILLER Mistakes People Make While Planning Their Year appeared first on Lifehackbootcamp.

No matter how you slice it – this is the central truth of planning: the more time you put between you and any goal… the more power you have over it.

That’s why we’re so focused on pre-planning over here at the Lifehack Method! We pre-plan our weeks, months, and even our entire YEAR ahead of time!

You might be thinking… three different levels of pre-planning is excessive – aren’t they all the same? 

Nope! As we move down the list from annual to weekly, we move from strategic into tactical. Executing on an epic year requires a mixture of both – we need to be able to see the big picture and map our attack plan… but we also need to take massive action and get shit done. 

It ALL starts with annual pre-planning, because we’re setting the guide rails that your train’s going to run on all year long.

But in order for your annual pre-planning to be worth your time and energy, you have to avoid some of the easiest traps we see our clients falling into again and again. 

WISH LISTING

Wish Listing happens when people treat their annual pre-planning like it’s their Christmas list. 

There are a million things that all of us dream of accomplishing in the next year – I know I sure would love to learn how to play guitar, run a marathon, travel for 6 months, and double our revenue!

It’s easy to make a plan where you get everything you want without any sacrifices. 

But deep down, we all know those dreams aren’t all realistic. 

A good annual pre-plan doesn’t just make a plan for what will happen this year… it helps you get very clear on what won’t happen.

It requires summoning some everyday courage, making tough choices, and focusing your energies onto your most leveraged Yes’s.

STEPPING ON THE RAKE

The second most common mistake we see our clients making during their annual pre-plan is not learning their lesson! 

We like to call this stepping on the rake

We had a client, Lana, who used to challenge herself every year to finish 52 books. She never got close! 

Not only was it sucking a bunch of time out of her schedule, it was an information overload that was preventing her from actually taking action on ANYTHING she actually wanted to do! 

And the fix for this was such a simple one: put the books down, and turn what you KNOW into what you DO! 

Lana was stepping on the rake. She was making the same mistake over and over again, not taking the time to reflect. 

Most of us are moving so fast that we, too, aren’t taking the time to reflect on what’s working, and what clearly isn’t

Sometimes it’s as simple as reading less and doing more.

If these common mistakes resonate with you, you are not alone! We’ll be talking way more about these mistakes – along with all of our other tips and tricks for annual pre-planning – during our Best Year Ever Challenge this January!

Justene has been a veterinarian for more than 2 decades… and she has owned her practice for almost 7 years now.

She’s super passionate about her career – but running a practice is another thing entirely 🙁

She didn’t have systems in place that would allow the business to run when she wasn’t around.

She also had a habit of hiring unskilled people, but never had time to train them. So her team was chronically overworked and underpaid.

Suddenly, everyone began to quit. It was a mutiny! And it set her business back years.

It was then that she joined our 60-Day Breakthrough Bootcamp. She knew she needed to step up her game in a big way, and she knew she’d need help doing so.

She started to think of the mass mutiny as an opportunity to change everything. Essentially start from a blank slate.

She completely redesigned her entire business – she created powerful systems and processes, hired experienced vets, and was able to automate a lot of her former responsibilities.

This past month has been the clinic’s highest grossing month since she bought it… Right on the heels of her going on her second safari of 2019.

I just got an email from her recently:

“You guys started something in me. I’m not perfect but I am making progress! Massive imperfect action is the exact way! This was at odds with my original mindset… Changing this was key. Now we help more clients and animals than ever before…”

She doesn’t have to worry about her practice while she’s away – it’s thriving without her!
