Some of you expressed interest in our 12-week Boot-Camp that runs every semester. You can read more about the program by clicking here. It's not for everyone, but if you need to make some radical changes in your productivity and/or work-life balance AND you know that you'll be most effective working within an intense community of support and accountability, then consider enrolling in our next session.
I greatly enjoyed working with you!
