One year of Focus & Success

1 plan.

12 months.

52 weeks.

This is your year.

It’s time to finally do that thing.

In one year from now, you could have written that book, started that business and created the life that you want to live

by working less hours, not more.

What’s that one Big Idea that has been swimming around in your head? You want to write a book? Launch your own business? Follow through on that thing that is going to take you to the next level? or simply get rid of your social media-and netflix addictions?

You’ve followed free online courses on timemanagement, only to find yourself frustrated with lackluster results.

When you tried productivity hacks, you ended up overwhelmed, tired and disappointed.

You’ve tried to set aside your big idea, but there is a pull for something more and different, deeper and more meaningful. 

You have a dream work project that you want to create, without over-work and constant hustle.

If this is you, first of all, let me comfort you by saying the following. You did not fail (or avoided to begin in the first place!) because you lack the mental strength, the discipline, or the talent to follow through on your Big Idea.

It’s just that you lacked the support, structure and skills that are crucial for creative succes.

While there are many self-help books and trainings available that teach you to ‘follow your heart’; ‘find your passion’ and ‘do what you like’, they never explain you how you can be successful in reaching your goals. How you commit to resolutions and avoid giving up halfway, and how you can become more productive and focused but not overworked and stressed.

That’s why I developed One Year of Focus & Success: a support program on stressfree work and productivity that is unlike any other.

“Imagine waking up each morning with an excitement that you haven’t felt in years, and going to bed feeling purposeful and fulfilled. That is what you can expect if you register for One Year of Focus & Success.”

What if I told you that you can do way more, by becoming less busy?

What if I told you that you could probably let go of 75% of that stuff you now fill your time with? 

That it is possible to turn your dream into reality, and that following through will leave you feeling more energized than when you started?

Welcome to One Year of Focus & Success. A year-long coaching and creative mentorship programme that will revolutionize the way you approach the big ideas that have been keeping you awake at night. This program is unique, offering a mix of teaching, support and empowerment. We go beyond what everyone has taught you about growth.

At the end of this year, you will have finally done that one thing. You will have succeeded.

I have created One Year of Focus & Success for people who have an idea, plan or goal but fear they might not be able to achieve it all by themselves. People who want to change their lives into a more fulfilling one, but are unsure how to change it. For people that have wanted and tried to achieve life change, before, but bounced right back into old habits and routines.

That time’s over.

Who I am:

If there is anyone who knows how to get things done in scarce time, it’s me. I am an awarded writer of six (internationally) published fiction and non-fiction books. A public speaker, a social scientist, a journalist and an online entrepreneur. I’m also a mentor for creatives, writers, artists and academics all over the world. To help them turn their dream projects into reality – in less time than they ever deemed possible.

What we offer:

One Year of Focus & Success can be purchased in two variations. For new applicants, we offer an online, supported variant where myself, my team and a committed group of peers help you develop your personal work project and take leadership in your work-life. You receive weekly lessons that teach you methodologies to find focus and clarity; workbooks, planners, meditations and all other course materials; monthly shared workhours in an online office environment; seasonal webinars with in-depth knowledge and life-changing insights, and much more. For students that have already attended the full program, there is the possibility to join the “self-study course”.

For who is this program?

Members of One year of Focus & Success typically include people running or starting creative and/or online businesses, freelancers, and academics. What we all have in common is a dream work project that we want to create, without over-work and constant hustle.

I don’t believe in 80 hours workweeks. I do believe in focus, strategic work and concentration.

Fully supported year-programme:

  • Intake-group strategy call (1,5 hour) with an experienced facilitator and community host to get your goals for the year razorsharp and establish a personal roadmap, so that you know exactly what to do this year, when and how.
  • 52 weekly text, audio and video lessons that will teach you exactly how you get more done, in less time. I only share the methods that actually work. All methods in this program are scientifically-based and track-proven.
  • Learn track-proven methods that help you to get more done, in less time; to work in alignment with your personal, ideal work-rhythm– allowing you to make shorter, but more productive days. Learn how to design your workweek in such a way that you feel energetic instead of tired at the end of the week. Finally, together we will declutter and detox all the distractions in your (online) life, making sure that at the end of the year, you’ll be proud of your work, focused, and inspired.
  • Seasonal (4x per year) Masterclasses by Roanne on: goalsetting & energymanagement, timemanagement & detoxing your worklife, creativity & inspiration, working successfully with uncertainty, your inner critic and difficult external circumstances.

FAQ

Are you productive?

People who know me typically say I’m extremely productive. Which is true, I guess, if you look at my output (next to my job as a researcher on risk, courage and high-performance, last year I’ve written and published a novel, published a non-fiction book, translated a third book, created a new E-course, hosted two podcasts, wrote over 10 academic articles and more than 40 articles for magazines). You can check out some of my work here, if you’d like! I also travel the world for my research-and writing work, volunteer for a good cause and have a dog and family members that I care for. But I don’t feel busy. I don’t act busy. In fact, I find plenty of time to ponder, make long hiking trips, rock climb, play, dance, have lunch with friends, ponder, draw and write in my journal. I’m getting things done in relatively little time, because I am extremely productive when I’m working. I’ve learned how to do that over the years. And it’s nothing more than a (lifechanging) set of skills that you can learn to master, too. I’d be honored to teach you all the methods, that help me!

What do I need for this course?

An email account, a computer with a speakerbox and/or headphones, a journal and pen. That’s all folks.

What if I miss a class?

No problem at all! You can always catch up when time allows you. I make replays of groupcalls and Q&As, and all of the lessons can be downloaded whenever you want.

How much time will this cost me per week?

Reading through the material will cost you on average 20 minutes; the actual work time is 30 minutes to one hour. Better news: the lessons will help you to save time. By implementing them, you’ll notice that you will become able to do much more, in much less time. That having been said, it depends, of course, on the plan you want to develop and the project you want to work on.

What if I have no goals, or if I don't know what my dream life is?

No worries, if you feel that there is something inside of you, that is pulling you and that is longing for something more and different, deeper and more meaningful, then I’m gonna help you define your goals, get them crystal clear and achieve them.

When do we start?

The program is NOW admitting new clients. We will formally start at the 1st of the new year, but once you’ve subscribed, you’ll already receiving some pre-let’sdothisthing-assignments, Ebooks, planners and other motivational stuff – consider them our warm-ups. On 1 January, we all start together, so that we can make use of a shared work-energy and you will have an obvious baseline to start off with. If you want to start a bit later, that’s no problem at all. Once in, you will get access to all the content. You can work on the lessons, see replays and co-work with your peers, whenever is convenient for you.

Can I take the course in a different language than English?

No, I only offer this course in English, because it is important to me that people from everywhere in the world can join in. If you are Dutch and you prefer to follow a course about fear and courage in your native language, then the Fearlessly Fearful E-course is available for you in Dutch.

Can I pay with PayPal and/or in USD?

Absolutely! After you have clicked the registration button, you will be led to a secured payment environment. From there you can pay via PayPal, Creditcard, or if you prefer, via bank transfer. You pay in the currency that you prefer.

Is it possible to pay in monthly instalments?

Yes! If you join the supported program, you can.

Can I join in with a small project, for which I might not need the full year?

I do recommend you join the whole year to get the most complete results from the lessons and the work-energy in the peer-community, but there are, of course, projects and situations that may demand an exception. If you feel that you want to join in, but only for 6 months (minimum), please send me an Email and briefly tell me about your plan, so I can consider your application.
