I'm gonna get right to the point today- It's you.
You're the road block.
However, not in the way you're probably thinking.
You might be thinking, yeah, yeah, I know, I'm the problem, but the thing is, it's not really YOU, it's just your APPROACH.
You see, most of us creative entrepreneurial types are not the naturally organized people that are just born productive. We're wired differently.
Ever notice how those kids at school that made the perfect grades all the time, always had their homework done, and obeyed every rule ended up working as the perfect employee in a job that they probably don't even enjoy?
Meanwhile, we were the kids challenging the teacher's statements, smoking in the bathroom between classes, and skipping school altogether whenever we got the chance and we're also the ones who grew up to create our own jobs, run our own empires, and work as little as possible doing it.
Our brains are wired to change the rules, to...
When I say the word ‘nourishment’ what comes to mind? Food, right?
What if I told you the foods you eat are secondary to all the other things that “feed” you.
We here at Productive Souls have a philosophy about food—it’s that everything we consider as a source of nutrition is really just a secondary source of nourishment.
This means there are other important aspects of our lives that feed us, which make up what we call “primary foods,” such as your relationships, career, spirituality, and physical activity. These aspects of life serve as energy to feed optimal wellness, whereas food provides fuel for our bodies.
Every day we take in experiences from life that fulfill us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. These experiences provide nourishment, just like food provides energy. One cannot thrive if any aspect of being goes unfulfilled.
The extent to which we are able to incorporate the things we hunger for determines...

Fall is in the air, most places anyway...
Here in Florida we're still struggling with near 100 degree temps but drinking our pumpkin spice lattes anyway as I sit here and type wearing jeans and a cardigan sweater with my freshly added Fall color in my hair.
I can pretend it's Fall weather in the quiet air-conditioned space of my own home right?
This time of year though always makes me think of how people get lost in holiday mode, get stuck in high stress levels around family gatherings, money spent on gifts and parties, and for some, even the pain of wishing for the company of loved ones no longer with them.
Productivity slows, guilt over goals not achieved runs rampant, and the stress levels continue to build.
Coping with all of that leads to over-eating, over-spending, and by January, it's easy to be left with too much debt, too many...
To understand why productivity coaching is not the solution you need to succeed, you first need to understand why you've sought (or are thinking of seeking) out a coach to begin with.
Typically, we go into real estate thinking that we're going to make lots of money easily. Sure, it'll be a struggle at first... but once we get things rolling, it'll be a breeze. We think we're going to show houses, meet people, have fun, and the money will just flow and money will make us happy and therefore fix all of our problems. Of course we know on a conscious level that money doesn't fix our deep-rooted problems but still, this is the feeling we seem to have anyway.
Once you are actually knee-deep in the business of real estate, you come to the conclusion that money (and leads) are not exactly pouring in the door and the lead generation tactics taught are either very expensive or feel icky and unsavory so either you don't do them consistently or you...
You came here for a reason and, let's be honest here, you're struggling with at least one of the four elements of productivity and probably more than just one.
Do yourself a favor, book some time, it's free, and let's get you the solution you need to breakthrough these issues once and for all.
