Productive Business Planner
Productive - The all-in-one business system designed to focus your actions on those that matter the most. Achieve your business goals.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, August 2 2018 9:03 PM UTC +00:00.
If you're ready to reclaim your time, and achieve the business goals that you desire, then please allow me to introduce you to PRODUCTIVE!.
PRODUCTIVE! is an all-in-one business growth strategy that uses a revolutionary system called #PowerMoves to help you do the work that actually gets you where you want to go in the time that you have available.
Not only will you see the results of your weekly #PowerMoves immediately, but you will FINALLY meet the goals you set year after year.
We live in a world that rewards chaos and keeping a frenetic pace.
As entrepreneurs, we often wear overwork and stress as a badge of honor. We get caught in reaction mode, never catching our breath or finding the time to make our business match our vision.
How can we focus when we are being pulled in a million directions?
You have clients who need you, your family needs you, everyone has a hand out needing you.
The reality is…your business is running you:
- You are in a constant state of reaction
- You are working in a consistent cycle of urgency
- You are stressed
- You’re working around the clock 26/7
- You aren’t having any fun constantly putting out fires
- You are on the edge of burnout...
- Somewhere along the way you lost yourself in your business
- You’re unhealthy. What is self-care?
- And…you are losing sales and customers as a result of being overwhelmed.
To add insult to injury, your business is exactly where it was 3 months ago, 6 months ago, or even several years ago.
There has been no growth or shift to reach your vision for your business.
The reality is…your business is running you.
That’s why I have created PRODUCTIVE!– a tool designed to get you where you want to be in your business and your life.
Your goals and dreams can be a reality - not just an image in your head or on a vision board.
Here's what I know about you:
- You're ready to achieve the business that you desire.
- You want to do more of the work that you love.
- You want to increase the impact of your business on those who need you the most.
- You are hungry for success... on your own terms.
- You are dedicated to running a profitable business that impact more people who need you.
- You are ready to own your time - to shift away from chaos towards a focus on running a profitable business.
Female-owned businesses contribute over $117 billion into the Canadian economy and $2.5 trillion in the U.S. economy.
Over the last 25 years, women have been launching new businesses at double the rate of men.
Statistically, it looks like women are making it happen. Fantastic!
Yet less than 2% of all women entrepreneurs ever earn over $1 million.
Even more astonishing…79% of women entrepreneurs earn less than $22,000 a year from their business.
What can we do about it?
It is NOT about time management.
It’s about #PowerMoves.
It’s about choosing how we spend our time and the actions we take monthly, weekly, daily, and hourly to directly impact the growth of our business.
It’s about shifting from your business running you to running your business from your Place of Power.
Quarterly, monthly and daily systems show you how to schedule everyday actions that are aligned with your business goals, so you’re strategic about how you spend your time and energy.
Goal reviews and reflections help you evaluate what’s working and what isn’t working, so you know what you need to prioritize to stay on track with the growth you want to see.
You can manage your cash flow with profit and expense tracking…
Capture your ideas on paper with fun brain dump clouds Choose a quote or mantra to frame your mindset every week...
And my favorite feature: the affirmations and inspirations that challenge you to keep going and stay positive even when you have one of those weeks that doesn’t go quite according to plan.
The first edition of PRODUCTIVE! has already helped women double their revenue and take a proactive approach to growing their business by breaking down their big vision into manageable phases, actionable goals and impactful power moves.
But now it’s getting an exciting upgrade, which is where you come in.
When you back this Kickstarter, you’ll help me design and print PRODUCTIVE!, and support women who are building businesses that contribute to their communities and give back to important causes all over the world.
You’re also joining a movement of women entrepreneurs who want more - more time, more freedom, more results and more impact… the peer group alone is worth the investment.
Women just like you who are ambitious, passionate...and ready to find deeper satisfaction and fulfillment in their business.
This second edition of PRODUCTIVE! is a result of your feedback and suggestions!
Smaller size to make it more portable so you have more flexibility
Flexible cover to make the planner lighter and easier to carry in your purse or with your computer
Colorful and enticing designs to brighten and inspire
Simplified process to help keep you on track and a powerful new training which will help propel your business to new heights
Stickers to help you creatively plan and layout your year, your quarters, your months and your weeks… the sky's the limit and we are adding new designs regularly.
One of your most powerful assets to ensure success is the sum of the people that surround you.
By backing this Kickstarter campaign at $34 or more, you gain instant access to an exclusive and private Facebook group where you'll receive support and guidance from Shelagh Cummins and surround yourself with incredible entrepreneurs.
This exclusive and private community will allow you to build relationships with other PRODUCTIVE! and successful entrepreneurs dedicated to supporting each other in business growth.
Shelagh Cummins is a Business Consultant, Coach and Speaker who helps women entrepreneurs scale a profitable business — without drowning in debt, forfeiting family time, or working in their sleep.
Through fluff-free business strategy and hands-on support, she helps you lose the excuses, so you can find the breakthroughs, cash flow, and joy in your business.
After working with hundreds of entrepreneurs around the world, I know ONE commonality in their success is the daily #PowerMoves they take.
Productive will support more entrepreneurs to follow the #PowerMoves path to success.
I've created some very valuable reward levels that you won’t want to miss. If you know me at all, you'll know that I never discount my services or offerings. These rewards will only be available during this Kickstarter campaign. I want to offer the early backers of this campaign the best value possible.
Instead of rewarding you with tshirts (don't you have enough?), coffee mugs or dust collectors, I have decided that the best way I can show my gratitude is to help you.
I want you to succeed, but my time and resources are limited, so I'm only offering these additional rewards during this Kickstarter campaign. Take advantage of these rewards before they're gone!
Pay It Forward
One of the elements of PRODUCTIVE! that makes me so excited is the worldwide impact and potential that it holds.
1. The Get One Give One Program
The Get One Give One Program has enabled planners and training to be donated to aspiring entrepreneurs who need a little boost or support.
The first edition of Productive has been donated to high school entrepreneurs, mom entrepreneurs, immigrant entrepreneurs, underprivileged entrepreneurs - all amazing entrepreneurs who are big visionaries and dreamers with big plans to make our world a better place. Each donation came with the training and support to help implement the process in their business.
In September 2018, applications will be open to organizations to apply for consideration of being the recipient for planner donations. AND - the donation comes with the support of Shelagh and her team as they support your women to reach new heights of possibility.
However, this time, I have a bigger vision.
And I have never spoken about it out loud. Here goes!!
To start a micro-lending program for women entrepreneurs here in Canada and the US.
I have long been a supporter of micro-lending programs for women overseas. The reality is a $20/ $50 donation to a women in a developing country will go very far - however here, in our backyard, it won't.
There are so many times when a cash infusion of $2500, $5000 or $10,000 would have made all the difference in my journey and in those of my clients and community too.
Banks are very hesitant to loan money to entrepreneurs, and particularly women entrepreneurs. I will save you the rant-suffice it to say, when one needs money - it can be hard to find.
The loans could cover tuition, training, web development, marketing, PR, coaching - who knows. With manageable interest (less than 10%) these loans could be a game changer in the lives of so many.
So there you have it.
The bigger vision behind this crowdfunding initiative.
If you feel inclined, please could you share this with any entrepreneur or business owner who needs to reclaim their time and hit their business goals. It's a proven system with an excellent track record.

Risks and challenges
The idea for Productive came from years of helping entrepreneurs create this blueprint for themselves... I kept thinking there has to be an easier way.
When I finally sat down and mapped out the system, I couldn't believe how systematic it was - no matter what the business, or the person - there were common elements within everyone's process.
The process of creating a business tool from an abstract idea has not always been smooth or stress free. But it's here. And we did it. And we have now improved on our original version.
The biggest risk lies within the funding of this project. We have the pdf's ready to go and are awaiting the results to press go with the printer. All our ducks are in line and we are looking to see this project gain traction... and would so appreciate your help making it happen.
The faster we move towards getting this book in the hands of those entrepreneurs who need it the most, the faster we activate a movement towards one of earning sustainable revenue (read PROFIT), so more entrepreneurs can do more of the work they love and help more people in the process.
The other risk is in keeping to the delivery date. Of course ALL efforts will go into getting it into your hands by October, but sometimes the universe has other timelines in mind. We will be working tirelessly to make sure you receive your book on time, and if it's late, know that we are hustling and busting our knickers to put out any fire that arises.
- All gone!
