ellen goodwin

I don’t just write about working when no one is watching, I speak, consult, and train about it as well. Through customized presentations and programs I bring the information in DONE to life in an entertaining and memorable way.

Since no one likes watching a boring presentation or wants to suffer through a dull workshop, I go to great lengths to ensure my presentations engage, delight, and educate. Packed with stories, examples, and when appropriate, exercises, I ensure that audiences walk away with the information and tools that fully equip them to make the most of their time and their energy, so that they can effectively get more DONE.


DONE: The Book

DONE is a hands-on guidebook that teaches, through stories, examples, and activities how working with (and around) your brain, can make all the difference in what you accomplish every day. It also delves in to the importance of being in action (and not motion); the best way to prevent obstacles from stopping you; how to easily build stronger and better habits; and why it’s more important to manage you energy instead of your time. DONE gives you options and choices when it comes to getting things DONE.
