What does a typical day look like to you now?

7am: We wake up and make breakfast in the kitchen (breakfast is taken seriously in our house — we often begin planning it the night before!).

8:30am: The school day begins. Michael usually sits with the girls and they practice their morning verse, just as they do at school, and then they study the main lesson or work on any assignments sent over from their teachers. 

9:30/10am: After cleaning up breakfast and doing a bit of laundry, I usually begin my working day.

How has Coronavirus impacted your life/work?

Both my husband and I have worked from home for the past few years. We are now in our Seventh week of staying home and Homeschooling them. We are also in the process of creating a new E-Course for this year. Instead of filming In-Person interviews with experts, I’ve had to conduct the interviews over zoom. 

The upside is that I get to interview experts from around the world, not just those who are local to me.

What productivity tips have you found useful whilst working from home?

We have found it helpful to wake and follow the normal daily routine. We get dressed, despite the fact we aren’t going anywhere, and we try to start work and schooling at the same time, as usual, to keep to a normal schedule.

We’ve been saying we wanted to start meditating for years, but we’ve never made the time for it. Now is our time!

When this is all over, what will the opportunities look like?

I really hope that this period of time will be an eye-opener for many people and businesses. We will have perhaps learned how to work more productively in fewer work hours. We will have responded and reacted in innovative ways, which may become a wonderful new way forward. We will have slowed down our minds and bodies and allowed room for thinking creatively in terms of business ideas and strategy. 

Perhaps we will have all shifted our priorities on the work/life balance scale and you’ll see more people thriving on a personal level.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
