It walks you through the key elements of your membership portal.
Once you've done that, you'll have an overview of the membership, and you can decide where your focus should be for the next few weeks.
The Productive Insights membership programs (at all levels) are designed to be “done with you” services.
This means we help you achieve your goals and offer guidance and mentoring along the way but we don't do the work for you.
If you'd like to learn more about our done for you services please contact Ash Roy on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Productive Insights Membership programs assume you’re motivated and driven to achieve your goals and that you’ll do what’s necessary to get yourself there with our guidance.
This means that most of your questions will be clarifying questions rather than questions that put the onus of achieving results onto the program mentor.
Here’s an example of a clarifying question (which is within the scope of this program):
“I’d like to grow my business by 10% over the next 6 months. I’ve gone through the training in the portal and I think the next step for me is to understand who my ideal customer is and what her problem is. Can you help me identify my ideal customer and her key problem?”
Here’s an example of that same question which puts the onus on the program mentor (and which is outside the scope of this program)
I need to grow my business by 10% over the next 6 months. What should I do?
The higher levels of the Productive Insights program (Pro and One to one) do offer some accountability tools including:
However, these tools are only to help you achieve your goals and assume you’re motivated to achieve them.
The onus is on you to show up to the mastermind calls and the Productive Sprints to take advantage of these tools.
In an attempt to go above and beyond our commitment, we aim to remind you of the calls via SMS when possible, but that's not included within the scope of this membership program.
If you're on one of the three plans below (and haven't done so already), then go ahead and book a time with Ash Roy using this link.
We should be able to lock in some quick wins for you.
If you're on the lite plan, move to the next FAQ question.
The Productive Sprint is a valuable method to boost productivity. It involves dedicating just 25 minutes to a focused, high-impact task. This technique helps you maintain efficiency and meet your professional objectives with precision and effectiveness. It's a practical tool to help you manage your workload and make meaningful progress.
The Productive Sprints follow the Pomodoro technique. Here's how it all works:
1. Each Pomodoro (Sprint) goes for 25 mins ending on the top of each half-hour. We then have a 5 min debrief. So, for example, we go from 10.05 am to 10.30 am. At 10.30 am each person has 30 seconds to give himself/herself a score out of 10 for that sprint, state ONE THING to make the next sprint more effective, and state the focus for the next sprint (see step 5 below).
2. Choose ONE THING you’re going to focus on in this session (this one thing could be anything you need to do to move your business forward. maybe you need to have a nap. yes even that can be your one thing).
3. Share/chat that ONE THING (from step 2) into the group.
4. Sprint for 25 minutes till this Productive Sprint is finished (you're welcome to turn off your camera if you prefer).
5. At the end of this session, each of us has 30 seconds to say
1. I give myself a score of _____ out of 10 for this last session.
2. My focus for the next sprint is ___________.
6. That's it.
If you haven't already done so, go ahead and download the 9-step business growth framework using this link.
Make sure you give us permission to continue emailing you so we can send you the free 9-day email course walking you through our 9-step business growth framework.
Each day the free email course takes you through the key elements of building a successful business in some detail. Each day you receive a link to a particular podcast episode that dives deep into the step related to that day's content.
For example, in the first email, you learn how to get clear on your mission and vision — something I discussed with Ryan Deiss — founder of Digital Marketer on my podcast.
Then in the second email (day 2) you learn the importance of empathy in marketing and you get access to a conversation I had with Seth Godin on that very topic.
