Does any of this sound familiar...
The life of a master procrastinator
When you get home at night, you find yourself too exhausted to do anything more than lay in bed and watch another episode of your latest Netflix obsession.
But even though you feel like you deserve a break, you never enjoy it.
You feel guilty for wasting your time, but you can't make yourself stop. And you constantly beat yourself up about it!
And because you feel like you're behind everyone else and you feel like you're letting everyone down, you procrastinate even more! And you're at the point where simple life tasks (like going to the gym, eating right and organising your time) feel like you're trying to move mountains, even though you 'know' what you need to do.
You hate it.
No matter how many hours you spend reading motivation articles on Pinterest or how many times you fill out a new planner, you just can't get yourself to change - even though you know you're the only one stopping yourself from progressing and you have the advice right in front of you!
After a lifetime of broken promises, you’re scared of disappointing yourself again. So you keep procrastinating.
But there’s a better way.
Get Out Of Your Own Way
I used to be in the same situation you're in right now. And because the whole situation was frustrating AF (and I knew I was better than what I was doing, even though I didn't have the evidence to prove it) I dedicated myself to figuring out how to stop sabotaging my own success.
And after four years, I finally figured it out.
I went from having a secret blog to quitting my full-time accounting job for blogging, and creating work that inspires hundreds of thousands of women around the world.
I went from procrastinating and feeling guilty all the time to being productive and focused when I work, and actually enjoying Netflix when I watch it (without all the self-loathing).
And most importantly, I stopped feeling behind and I stopped feeling like a failure. I went from feeling like a victim of my life to feeling in control, organised and like I was finally getting my life together. And habits like healthy eating and working out (which used to be SUCH a battle) are now actually easy to stick to.
Since everything I've learned has completely changed my life, I want you to have access to the very best of what I’ve learned. And now you can!
Get Out Of Your Own Way is an online video course that gives you the tools and mindset shifts you need to stop procrastinating, follow through with all your plans and have the courage to finally pursue your dreams. Even if your life is totally overwhelming and you have no idea what you want to do!
This course isn't about quick-fix procrastination tips or getting motivated.
Instead, Get Out Of Your Own Way goes way deeper. It’s about YOU.
This course includes:
Lesson 1 - Understanding Perfectionism. Learn everything you need to know about the mindset that’s causing you to procrastinate and stopping you from finishing what you start. Discover the ways your perfectionist mindset is undermining your hard work and why mantras like “nobody’s perfect” won’t help you make progress.
Lesson 2 - Finding The Cause. Hear about the heartbreaking childhood experience I irrationally used as evidence I wasn’t ‘good enough’ to help you reflect on your life and uncover the hidden reason you don’t feel adequate. Shine a light on the shame you’ve buried to allow it to start dissipating and stop ruling your life.
Lesson 3 - Being Good Enough. Guilting and shaming yourself into changing hasn’t worked. Get simple tools that will help you create the mindset shift you need to start seeing yourself differently. Learn how to lower your unrealistic expectations without sacrificing ambition or achievement.
Lesson 4 - Stopping Self-Sabotage. Learn how to identify and stop the self-destructive behaviour that is standing in the way of your goals. Hear examples from my students' lives to discover the sneakiest ways self-sabotage is stopping you from making progress and get practical tools to pull yourself out of this behaviour.
Lesson 5 - Creating Future Focus. If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done - so looking to your past for evidence of what you can achieve isn’t helpful. Learn how to focus on the future, instead of beating yourself up for the past, with a powerful journaling exercise that will have you motivated put your plans into action and actually stick to them.
Lesson 6 - Acting Despite Fear. Fear is a sign that you’re evolving so as you build your new life, you’ll still be faced with it. Discover practical ways to create the courage to pursue your goals and dreams even when you feel scared and surrounded by uncertainty. Become someone who inspires others to follow their dreams in the process.
Lesson 7 - Stopping Procrastination. Complete a powerful but simple procrastination assignment that will help you create the momentum and self-confidence you need to follow through with your plans and make yourself proud. This quick assignment will have you feeling super organised and ready to balance your busy life without feeling overwhelmed.
In Get Out Of Your Own Way you’ll learn:
- The real reason you haven’t been able to stop procrastinating and make yourself do what you truly want to do (hint: if you just needed more information or advice, you would have found it on Pinterest by now!)
- The practical things I did to stop getting in my own way and start creating my dream life, even though I didn’t know exactly where to start.
- How to follow through with your plans even when you get distracted, stop feeling motivated and are scared of what other people think.
- The difference between a lazy person and a perfectionist, and why a lifetime of procrastination doesn’t mean you can’t easily become productive, focused and organised.
- Why your intellectual knowledge that failure is part of the journey hasn’t been enough to stop you from shrinking your world and avoiding incredible opportunities because someone might say ‘no’.
- How to let go of other’s expectations without pissing anyone off. And how to let go of your insanely high standards for yourself without sacrificing results or ambition.
- The sneaky ways you’ve been sabotaging your dream habits, like waking up early and healthy eating, and how to catch yourself when it happens.
- Practical exercises that will help you uncover the thoughts and beliefs that have been stopping you from succeeding and how to create new beliefs in their place (tip: superficial ‘positive thinking’ isn’t the answer to creating real mindset shifts).
- The tools and mindset shifts you need to stop procrastinating, follow through with all your plans and have the courage to finally pursue your dreams.
- How to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’
- And much more!
How I’ve helped women just like you
"I truly loved the course and wish it was longer. It kept me focused and allowed me to think about everything I was doing that kept me from creating new habits. Everything you said in the course was exactly how I am and what I am doing. I remember those key points everyday when I don't feel motivated to keep my new habit. Thank you!"
"Everything you have said in the course is 100% accurate!! I knew that my perfectionism was hold me back but I never realised to what degree. I alway have these great ideas on how I can improve my life but I find it so hard to even start something. I always blamed it on motivation or my anxiety. Thank you sooooooooo much for sharing."
"I'm loving this course so far. I'm the queen of procrastination and putting off the things I want to do for fear of failure and lack of consistency. I have started to get up earlier in the mornings, which I'm loving!"
"This course encouraged me to (finally) launch my blog! Like, it's live! Thank you for giving me the motivation I needed to do it!"

Frequently Asked Questions
“I already have so much on my plate, how am I going to find the time to do this?” The last thing I want to do is give you something else to feel guilty about! Get Out Of Your Own Way isn’t a course you’ll have to keep forcing yourself to follow through on. It’s a 7-day transformational program that will help you create the mindset you need to stop you from procrastinating and sabotaging healthy habits. And from now on, whenever you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, you’ll have a place to turn to for help.
“What if I fall behind?” There’s no need to worry, Get Out Of Your Own Way is a self-paced course that comes with lifetime access! You’ll only need to spend 1-2 hours on the course in total (less than a couple of episodes of Netflix!) to get the full benefit and can do this over a number of weeks or in one sitting with a hot cup of tea.
“What if I’m just not capable of changing?” How you’ve acted in the past isn’t who you are. With my step-by-step instructions you’ll be able to begin to change the underlying beliefs that have been causing you to get in your own way. I never say anything like ‘choose to be happy’ or ‘just think positive thoughts’ as I’ve personally found this superficial advice isn’t helpful. Get Out Of Your Own Way is a transformational program and everyone is capable of transforming. But, of course, if you sign up for the program and feel it hasn’t changed you - I will give you all of your money back!
“I know it’s important to invest in myself but sometimes I doubt whether I should. No one else does it so I get worried I’m self-absorbed”. Most people spend money they don’t have to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like. And most people are miserable. Your mindset, not your possessions, is what determines how you experience and navigate the world. Your mindset is the most important thing you could invest in. Don’t miss out on making that investment just because the people around you don’t get it.
“But I like watching Netflix!” My goal here isn’t to stop you from ever watching Netflix again. It’s to help you become so productive that you have more time to do the things you love AND you won’t feel guilty or lazy while doing them!
“How does the course work?” Get Out Of Your Own Way is a self-paced, online video course. Each video contains a lesson and a reflective exercise to help you understand your mindset, stop procrastinating and get out of your own way. If you’re tired of dreaming of the life you want but never getting anywhere close to it, what I cover in the course is the first step.
“Is the course live?” This is not a live presentation. It’s an online video program that you can take at your own pace. The course comes with lifetime access, so the tools that will help you create your dream life will always be available to you, ready whenever you need them.
“How much time does this course take to complete?” You’ll only need to spend 1-2 hours on the course in total (less than a couple of episodes of Netflix!) to get the full benefit. You can do this over a number of weeks or in one sitting with a hot cup of tea.
“What will I need to do the course?” Just a pen, paper and access to the internet!

One last thing. I want to ask you to trust your gut.
How many of us have had something, right in front of us, that we know will improve our life. And we have the money to buy it. But we feel scared.
We’re scared we won’t get the results we want. We’re scared we’ll let ourselves down, yet again.
We’re also scared that we won’t be able to handle our new and better life. And we’re scared our friends and family will treat us differently because of it.
And it holds us back!
None of us want to feel miserable. None of us want to feel lost, confused, overwhelmed and unable to get ourselves out of bed to do all the things we want.
We’re willing to do the work, but we don’t have anyone to guide us. Our parents just don’t get what we’re dealing with and most of our friends and struggling with the same things we are. And there’s SO much advice online that it’s impossible to figure out where to start.
And I felt this frustration too! So I'm giving the guidance I wish I had when I was right in the thick of it all - desperate to stop doubting myself but having no idea how. Out of the hundreds of things I tried, I'm giving you the handful that work the very best. The ones that lead to real progress (not three days of superficial motivation).
When you do Get Out Of Your Own Way, not only will you start to cultivate the mindset that will stop you sabotaging your own success. But you’ll begin to create self-confidence.
You’ll know that when you plan something or find something amazing on Pinterest, you’ll actually follow through.
You’ll be able to pull yourself out of procrastination, so you don’t have to keep feeling guilty all the time about all the work you’re not doing.
And you’ll be able to finally see all the potential and beauty that others see in you.
Every day you’re not improving your mindset, you’re actually going backwards. We think that by not working to change our lives we’re just going to stay in the same place, but that’s not how it works. Each time you procrastinate, beat yourself up for procrastinating and then throw a pity party about it by lazing in bed and watching Netflix, you only get yourself more and more stuck.
Every day you don’t move forward, there’s a cost.
After years of procrastinating and beating yourself up, it’s easy to begin thinking that it’s just the way you are. Years ago, I did. I had all kinds of excuses for myself about why I couldn’t create the life I want - I’m too tired, I’m too busy, I don’t have enough willpower, life always gets in the way.
I procrastinated. And then I felt guilty about it and beat myself up, which only made me procrastinate more. It was a vicious cycle.
But finally, after years of self-work, when I finally figured out how to get out of my own way, I learned I could change myself from the inside out.
A year from now, I’d like you to be that person too. The material in Get Out Of Your Own Way can show you how.
I can guide you. But you have to take the first step.
