Hi, I’m Chris Mullen. I am a speaker, trainer, coach, consultant, and blogger. I specialize in productivity, work-life balance, hiring practices and organizational and professional development.

Years ago I started this blog as a way to share some of the lessons I was learning in my life. I wanted to be a better me so I started on my journey to designing my best life. Then others were asking me how they could improve their lives, leadership, and productivity. People wanted to know how I was going about improving my life.

Who this site is for

This site is for those who want to improve one or more aspects of their life. The norm is not good enough for you. You want to improve all the different areas of your life and move the needle forward. You want to continue to climb the mountain that is your life; one step at a time…AND I want to help.
