We’re ALL tired of the bro-preneur approach to productivity…
The get shit done, harder, faster, stronger mindset, that prioritizes doing as much as possible at whatever costs. Hacking away your life and work, just so you can work some more. Productivity for productivity's sake.
That's not the help you need.
You already know how to work hard and put in hours. What you *really* need help with is TURNING OFF your workaholic tendencies...
Like, when to call it a day on your to-do list and turn on TV.
Or when a break and a walk outside is the answer to a biz problem you’re working on.
And how to balance wanting to go after everything (a podcast...a course...an Instagram for your dog!) with needing to take care of yourself (time off...daily routines...regular dance breaks! 🕺).
Because sure...you love your work! And there’s a LOT you wanna do with your career. But for you, productivity is more than that.
The main reason you REALLY care about working smart and being productive is so you can have things other than work going on for you: taking care of yourself. Seeing family and friends.
Hobbies (remember hobbies?!).
And a good, juicy Netflix binge once in a while (with popcorn, please).
You know balance is out there, BUT you feel end up feeling guilty prioritizing yourself over work.
Sure, you’ll give yourself a break when you NEED to...but ONLY when you’ve “earned it.”
And even when you do treat yourself, you can’t stop thinking about work during your time off. And half the time, you regret the choice the next day.
And you’ve been working like this for years!
Mayyybe you’ve managed to avoid total burnout, but you also can’t remember the last time you didn’t feel it creeping just a few bad days away.
That’s because most productivity advice doesn’t talk about when to *stop* being productive and focus on the rest of your life.
To do that, you need to stop working smarter and start working brighter.
Let go of the mindset that self-care is a reward for hard work, and start seeing it as part of the process. 🤯
Without a break or two, you’ll burn out long before you ever meet your goals. Take it from someone who straddled the line between “making” and “breaking” for 3 years… (Spoiler alert: I eventually broke)
You need to adjust your mindset around productivity and success if you want to work hard AND have fun.
This means building habits, systems and routines for *all* areas of your life instead of just work.
It means viewing rest and self-care as jobs to be done, part of your to-do list.
Scheduling and systemizing your health and hobbies the same way you do your work. Maybe even some outsourcing, too!
Working brighter goes beyond working smarter. It's also working happier. And living smarter, playing smarter, and resting smarter, too.
And most importantly, surrounding yourself with friends who are committed to working brighter and becoming productive unicorns with you.
Friends who won’t JUST hold you accountable to get your work done.
They also encourage you to take breaks and waste time now and then too. And push you to get balance and STAY balanced, consistently making time for everything that matters to you.
(No self-care shame allowed!)
Think of it like a “self-care mastermind!”
You get to connect with other professionals and entrepreneurs, but help each other with our lives OUTSIDE of work.
Because let’s be real, sometimes your work is the one area you’ve got covered. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The Work Brighter Clubhouse is a community for side hustlers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs who are ready to ditch quick hacks and complicated frameworks so they can help each other personalize productivity. 🤓
It’s where you’ll figure out how to work in ways that REALLY work for you, surrounded by the Leslie Knope-style cheerleaders you need to dig into your own habits and quirks.
An escape from all the “hustle harder” and “balance doesn’t exist” noise out there on social media and in your inbox, full of other women as determined as you to prove those claims ridiculously wrong.
We’ll help each other screw productivity best practices and create our own, brighter rules to stop...
And then join together to…
Are you ready to stop working smarter and start working brighter?!
Here's how it works...
What's included in the Work Brighter Clubhouse:
The Main Clubhouse
A 24/7 Slack community is the Clubhouse watercooler for supporting each other all day.
You can escape here for breaks, “I need to talk this out” moments, or when you’re super stressed. Think of it like a virtual Central Perk or Luke’s Diner!
Clubhouse Knowledge Library
Working brighter requires revamping the way you work, these resources help with that!
From workshop replays and mini-courses to project management templates and journaling prompts, the library has what you need to work brighter.
Weekly Planning Sessions
Coworking is a great way to stick to new habits, so we meet online every Monday to plan our weeks together, the brighter way!
Productivity Power Hours
In addition to planning our work together, we also meet up midweek for another coworking session focused on knocking out your to-do list.
Virtual Happy Hours
Share danceworthy wins and solve the ugh-iest problems with smarties who’ve got your back in weekly Zoom hangouts.
Think of it like a “life mastermind,” since the support goes sooo far beyond just your work or business!
Get help solving problems and creating habits with challenges like finding your best work schedule, building new routines, and decluttering.
Every month we’ll take on a new area of personal development together...and yes, there's prizes!
HOW THE Clubhouse WORKs:
The Work Brighter Clubhouse is an investment of $30/month.
Working brighter means…
And this Clubhouse is what you need if…
This is NOT a business community or mastermind. We’re not digging deep into tactics like growing your email list or building a content strategy...there are enough communities like that out there already, and they’re great for that.
But if those communities are like virtual business conferences, the Work Brighter Clubhouse is the relaxing slumber party you have with the other conference attendees in the hotel upstairs.
We’ll be less like colleagues and more like BFFs, and I’m not your drill sergeant-esque coach, simply the party hostess here to make sure everyone is having their best time.
frequently asked questions
What do you mean when you say this is in beta?
This is a new idea that I’m trying out, so think of yourself as part of the test run. You get early access to the program at a discount. As a trade-off, you agree to help make the public version as awesome as it can be by actively participating in the Clubhouse and sharing feedback on the program.
And...you said it’s on Slack? Tell me about that.
Yup! The Clubhouse beta will take place in a Slack team instead of a Facebook group, so that you don’t have to deal with the *rest* of Facebook to have fun with us!
You can either download the Slack app to your computer or phone and keep the Clubhouse open all day or check the website during your 5-minute breaks...WITHOUT a barrage of random distractions, your aunt’s weird political rants, spammy coaching and MLM pitches, and everything else that Facebook can bring.
We’ll be in our own bright little bubble.
