Do The Damn Thing

4-MONTH LIVE MENTORSHIP

learn to work with your brain

so you can get out of your head and into action

What if I told you…

Everything you’ve been taught about productivity, consistency, and what it takes to be successful…

is a lie

Well, maybe not a LIE. Traditional advice works for a lot of people.

But it doesn’t work for YOU.

And unfortunately, you haven’t been given any other tools.

Which means…

Instead of following your creative impulses, finally posting your drafts, & taking the necessary steps to turn your passions into a career, you likely…

  • stockpile ideas in your Notes app
  • spend months in analysis paralysis
  • attempt to force yourself to be consistent (but it's really just an all-or-nothing cycle)
  • go from excited to shut down the second a goal feels too big
  • and struggle to follow through, even though it's all you want

As someone who has been there, it’s a shitty fucking feeling.

This cycle quickly eats away at your confidence and makes you wonder if you’re even cut out for this.

Which makes me so sad & frustrated because the truth is…

I KNOW you’re cut out for this.

“How do you know, Whitney?? Maybe I’m the the one who actually can’t do it”

I know because I’ve been there and trust me… you are not the problem.

Society is the problem.

Shame is the problem.

Perfectionism is the problem.

Our unrealistic standard for success & productivity that most people will never be able to (and were never designed to) live up to is the problem.

The fact that you were told to “stop being lazy” and “try harder” instead of given the tools to address WHY things feel so hard is the problem.

But you, my friend, are not the problem.

In fact, I believe that you are perfectly designed for the work that you are meant to do.

In the same way that I was perfectly designed to struggle for years in my business and wonder why the fuck things were so much harder for me than they were for other people…

…so that I would be forced to study myself, create this approach, and then help others do the same.

Do The Damn Thing is my signature program teaching you how to work with your brain & be your own boss.

I just want to show you that your life & career can feel a hell of a lot better than they do right now.

Which means my job is to communicate how game-changing & surprisingly simple this approach is so you’ll be willing to trust it and dive in scared. 

Because on a human level, doing this program first will make everything you do in your career more effective

So let’s start with the basics and then I’ll tell you the story of how Do The Damn Thing came to be.

I want to help you feel more confident and capable so you can be fully, unapologetically yourself online (and finally get those ideas out of your Notes app).

I want to show you why typical motivation/productivity advice doesn’t work and how you can use your hyperfixations, niche passions, “lack of discipline” for things you “should do”, and rebellious nature to your advantage to get the right shit done.

I want to teach you how to design your life around how you work best so your business is burnout-resistant and you have the energy for long-term goals instead of always feeling like you’re starting from square one.

I want to normalize the things you struggle with the most & offer you new ways to respond so that a year from now, you wake up & realize you’re excited to work and focused in a way that you never thought would be possible.

I want to teach you how to take better care of yourself, be nicer to yourself, and not just tolerate your energetic/emotional waves… but use your body’s ups and downs to fuel your creative work.

What is Do The Damn Thing?

  • A 4-month group coaching program for current/aspiring business owners & self-employed creators.
  • Each week you get short, ADHD-friendly learning modules teaching you to work with your brain
  • Plus group coaching calls every other week & a private group chat for accountability & support.
  • It's designed to guide you in working toward a goal, step-by-step, so you can implement habit/mindset changes in real-time.
  • Oh... and it doesn't matter what goal you work on or if you "don't know what to start with." I'm teaching you that part, too

DETAILS:

  • Our first call is Tuesday, March 26
  • Program runs for 4 months: April – End of July
  • Coaching calls will likely be at ~3p PST, but we will discuss call times in the first week to accommodate as many people as possible
  • Limited seats available; this is meant to be an intimate, high-support experience
  • The program is designed to teach you how to work with your brain WHILE you make some serious progress on one of your goals
  • You cannot fail. If you show up to calls, you will get exactly what you need.

What if I told you…

NONE OF THIS IS A PROBLEM

There are plenty of mindset, manifestation, and business coaches to choose from, all with their own promises and approaches to success.

But it doesn’t mean they all understand your brain or how you need to be supported.

If you’re anything like my clients, tough love doesn’t cut it… and you’re basically allergic to any ideas or strategies that don’t feel right. 

You need a gentler approach… one that doesn’t remind you of the shame, pressure, and feelings of not-enoughness from your childhood.

Of course you want to make money, but you need to know that you’ll be supported in getting what you really want out of life… purpose, self-trust, self-accountability, community, creative freedom, and financial stability…

…and that you can have it without compromising your values or ethics to get there.

You need a coach who understands that you WANT to put in the work, but you need someone who doesn’t just assume you’re lazy and knows how to help you get unstuck.

That’s where I come in.

I help creatives master the mental & emotional experience of being self-employed and highly sensitive in the existential nightmare that is late-stage capitalism.

I teach people how to redesign their businesses to work WITH their brains and reconnect to the joy of working for yourself…

…because yes, business is definitely hard, but it shouldn’t feel like a drag that is eating away at your wellbeing.
