Hi! I’m Amy and I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m a self-proclaimed productivity coach. Meaning that I have no degree in “productivity coaching” because I’m pretty sure that isn’t a real thing. I do have a bit of an obsession for productivity though, and I think I’m pretty good at it. But it wasn’t always that way.
Just for your encouragement and entertainment, my life may or may not have once resembled the following bullet points. Maybe you can relate. If not, congratulations.
- You have a lot of dreams and goals but you’ve been stuck in your current situation for like, forever.
- Your productivity is dictated by your level of motivation, which is determined by your emotions, but your emotions don’t usually feel very motivated.
- You have a really hard time getting out of bed because you don’t feel excited or fulfilled with your current job or life circumstances.
- You’re smart and ambitious but get easily stressed, overwhelmed, and burnt out so you sleep more than everyone you know to escape your responsibilities and commitments, only to be more overwhelmed when you wake up.
- You’re so sick of yourself because you hate how you’re always late and disappointing people, but for some strange reason, you just can’t help it!
- You make plans with your boyfriend and show up late. Every. Single. Time.
- You make plans with your best friends and you cancel last minute because you’re too tired from staying up until 2AM looking at your married friends’ beautiful instagram feeds.
- You make plans with your best friends and you cancel last minute because you’re too tired from not being able to fall asleep at night because you took a 4 hour nap during the day which threw off your entire sleep schedule.
- You make plans to give your dog a bath and it doesn’t happen.
- You make plans with yourself and cancel.
- Your room (and the rest of your dwelling place) is a mess and it takes you forever to find matching clothes to wear in the morning (if you’re even awake).
- You’re finally dressed and ready to get to work early and feel great, until you begin searching your whole closet for your car keys because you don’t know which pocket or purse you left them in. Twenty minutes later, you find them under your bed covers and you’re no longer proud that you made your bed. Then you get in your car and are reminded by your dashboard that your tank is almost empty so you’re compelled to go to the gas station. You finally arrive at your final destination an hour late.
- You don’t remember when you last showered because dry shampoo has become an essential part of your daily routine.
- Your daily routine changes every day.
- You actually don’t have a routine.
- You wish someone could just tell you what exactly to do with yourself so you can be more productive and put together.
- You pretty much just need a lot of help.
If the description above sounds anything like yourself, you’re in the right place!
Because guess what? I want to help YOU.
In case you were wondering, here’s my life story in a nutshell:
I was born in Oklahoma City, grew up in Los Angeles. I went to college at UCLA, got my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mathematics/Economics. I also minored in Italian (parlo italiano!) but they didn’t give me a degree for my hard work. No hard feelings.
I completed three years of a post-graduate Bible truth and church service training program – two years in Anaheim (where Disneyland is) and one year in Boston. My parents got divorced during the first year of the training and my life fell apart – I was diagnosed with depression, started therapy and medication.
After the training I stayed in Boston for another year and worked a bunch of administrative temp jobs for a wide range of industries – architecture, public accounting, government, consulting. In that same year I got engaged, started wedding planning, then broke off the engagement. Then I moved back to LA.
I blogged while unemployed. I got an accounting job, didn’t like the 9-5 cubicle life so I stopped trying. I secretly worked on my blog business at work. Within three months they told me to not come back. I was happy and started working on my own business.
As an entrepreneur I knew I had to be smart about how I spent my time. I delved into my productivity research and tested out some methods.
But I soon found out that it wasn’t enough to just learn the best timesaving strategies like the Pomodoro technique and the Pareto principle.
I realized I also needed to cultivate an environment to enhance and optimize those time saving strategies. A simple, clean, aesthetically-pleasing, and thus productivity-inducing environment.
I discovered that my appreciation for stylish simplicity was a perfect match for my love for productivity. Now I’m the most productive I’ve ever been in my entire life.
