The 12 Week Year saved my career...it will work for you!
As a young professor, I discovered the 12 Week Year just when I needed it most. In the 20 years since then I have used it to write millions of words on all sorts of subjects. Most importantly, the 12 Week Year allowed me to get my writing done while maintaining a happy marriage, helping raise my three great kids, and getting entangled in any number of time-consuming side hustles along the way.
My goal is to share what I’ve learned with as many people as possible. Thousands of people have already used the 12 Week Year to achieve amazing things and I know you can too.
