An Innovative Employee Benefit for Your Organization
Your organization can have an “Alice in Your Pocket” experience 24-7.
Debut: July 2021

The pandemic has been one of the biggest disruptors to the way we work and live. With increased demands in our personal and professional lives, stress, anxiety, overwhelm and burnout is at an all-time high. This is negatively impacting the energy levels and engagement of employees, and slowly siphoning away productivity. As human beings, the need for direction and guidance has never been more necessary, or more sought after. Yet, where does one go to get what they need?

This app was created to be a full-spectrum resource to address the needs of individuals looking for grounded, inspiring and helpful support as we all continue to navigate the challenges of this next normal. The Work Inspired App includes over 1,000 articles, dozens of videos and 30+ longer-format classes with new content added on a very regular basis. Anchor segments include, “Book of the Month,” “Thought Leader of the Month” and “Topic of the Week.”

The user is prompted upon opening the app with the question, “WHAT DO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW?” and they have the option to choose one of the eight categories that lead them to articles and videos to address their needs.

POSITIVITY & INSPIRATION Surrounded by negative people or situations? Are your thoughts taking you down? Find ways to lift yourself up.

Our paradigm of life has changed so much that we need a fresh new perspective and plan to make our lives work for us versus against us.

We all have a multitude of things to remember, projects to start, people to call, places to go, commitments we’ve made and more. Too many untended things in our head negatively impact our short term memory and we lose efficiency. When our minds are disorganized, the thoughts, ideas, stressors and unfinished business floating around makes thinking clearly and making decisions harder. This class is a hands-on workshop, where attendees are guided through a process that helps to clear the mind and organize thoughts for immense internal relief, setting everyone up for optimal productivity.

Become a “time wizard” and transform time scarcity into time abundance
When we are time-stressed, we feel pulled in a gazillion directions.  Many of us go through our days scattered, distracted, overwhelmed, and frustrated having “not enough time” to do everything we want to do.  If this is you, it’s time to change your relationship with time.  This presentation will help you move towards time expansion, and opt out of the negativity around time scarcity.  Feeling constantly pressured by time actually makes you less efficient and contributes to health breakdowns in the process.
After this presentation, you will be inspired to stop sacrificing your well-being and learn:
  • How to shift your perception of time so that it naturally expands.
  • How to opt out of a constantly overwhelmed mindset about time.
  • How to confidently reject the cultural norms of hyperconnectivity and take control.
  • How to recognize your limiting beliefs and negative self-talk and upgrade your mindset.
  • How to make time work for you so well that it’s inevitable you become your most productive self.
