Get ready to get over overwhelm in your business and
find peace through productivity!


What is your biggest cause of “overwhelm”?

Scenario #1

You are a solopreneur with a part-time assistant who comes in twice a week. You’ve reached a new level of success in your business, with several new short- to medium-term projects to be launched within the next couple of weeks. Your assistant has suffered injuries in a fall that has placed her in the hospital for the next several weeks, so the entire management process for these projects falls upon you. How will you keep all the projects on schedule?

Scenario #2

You have been so busy over the past several months that your e-mail inbox has reached critical mass. There are several messages that require responses, many more that need to be filed, and even more that need to be deleted. You have made the painful, but unavoidable decision to purge the box and start “clean.” But your workload shows no sign of decreasing, and you don’t want to repeat the same behavior that caused you to need to purge your inbox in the first place. How can you manage the e-mail deluge successfully?

Scenario #3

A wealthy and influential client has entrusted you with a lucrative project. But the client is also overbearing, distrustful, and rude. You have reached the point where you dread working on the project because of the negative interactions that you have had with the client, and find yourself avoiding it. An interim deadline is fast approaching and you are not sure that you can meet it because you’ve been putting off working on the latest phase of the project. What should you do?

Paris Muse of Productivity™

I am known as the Paris Muse of Productivity™ because I live in Paris, France! In my early days of training and coaching, I taught time management with a French twist – my assistants were the art, history, architecture and timepieces of the City of Light.

See below what graduates of one of my time management programs have to say:

Monique’s time management course provided me with valuable tips and tools that I was able to use to immediately improve my time management capabilities. I found the session on focusing on an individual task especially useful, and have already employed several of the suggestions presented with noticeable positive results in this area.

The time management course presented by Dr. Monique Y. Wells was extremely useful and well done. It was presented in very manageable hour-long sessions using historical Paris as a backdrop and source of illustrative material. Small classes lend themselves to very dynamic and interactive sessions.

As a facilitator, Monique is engaging and a consummate professional.

I personally was able to identify, work on and improve two aspects of time management. This has already manifested as improved productivity and quality of life. I would unequivocally recommend this course.

I participated in the Autumn 2010 Time Management: Inspiration and Implementation training course. The written course material was outstanding (and very inspirational with beautiful photos of Paris) and I appreciated the recordings of the sessions that I could access in case I was unable to attend a particular session.

I gained a lot of useful tips from this course. It helped me reflect upon and improve my time management, so I certainly can recommend it!

Annabelle Heier

Monique Wells’ course, Time Management: Inspiration and Implementation, was an invaluable source of techniques, tools, and tips to take control of all the flood of obligations, tasks, and minutia that prevent us from accomplishing our goals. The Paris metaphors are a unique and enjoyable approach to presenting the material. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who feels there just isn’t enough time in the day!

The 30-Day Productivity Kick Start™ System

Based on hard-earned experience, I have created a tried-and-true system to help women solopreneurs and women who work from home “get over overwhelm” in their businesses. With the 30-Day Productivity Kick Start™ System, you’ll be able to get rid of your particular brand of overwhelm quickly and effectively and find peace through productivity!

This system is different because it forces you to look closely at your goals, which is something that most other coaches only pay lip service to – if they mention goals at all. Others assume that you should be working on all the projects that you currently have on your list. With 30-Day Productivity Kick Start™ System, you will critically evaluate your list and ELIMINATE low-value projects from it, so that a path is cleared for focusing on your most important projects and identifying any aspects within them that may lead to overwhelm.

Here’s the outline for the 6-step system that will change your business and your life:

Step 1. Focusing / refocusing on your business goals – I’ll help you with this preliminary step so that you can quickly move on to the preparatory phase of my simple, tried-and-true, 6-step system.

Step 2. Critically evaluating the three most important projects that you are working on to see how well they align with your goals, your niche, and your product/service.

Step 3. Evaluating the remaining projects on your list by using the same method, and determining whether they should be on your list!

Step 4. Identifying the steps required to free yourself of those projects that may have “crept onto” your list, despite not being aligned with your current goals.

Step 5. Looking at the “good” projects remaining on your list and evaluating them for potential sources of overwhelm.

Step 6. Identifying the most important source of overwhelm in your most important projects and creating a plan to control or eliminate it.

As you advance through the training, you will

  • Experience less stress – you’ll feel comfortable about what you are not doing at work because you’ll be better at prioritizing your tasks
  • Earn more income – you’ll be more productive every day, which will enable you to increase your revenues
  • Have greater job satisfaction – you’ll produce better quality products and services, and more of them
  • Better work/life balance – you’ll have more time to spend with family and friends outside of work – anxiety-free!

IMPORTANT: Getting over overwhelm takes time. There is no magical overnight “cure” for the challenges that face you, and you’ll need to break old habits and establish new ones to make the progress that you desire. But if you have the will to improve, and if you stick with the system, in 30 days you’ll see remarkable results!


Couldn’t you use an increase in revenue, while enjoying a less stressful existence and more free time for your family, friends, and personal projects?

Lee Milteer, Intuitive Business Coach, Award Winning BEST Selling Author, and International Acclaimed Speaker, commented on the Making Productivity Easy system (formerly called 6 Simple Steps to Getting over Overwhelm) by saying:

Monique knows her stuff!!!


No matter where you are in your business, it’s easy to fall prey to overwhelm. Reaching a point at which the growing pains in my business had become an issue, I was grateful to participate in Dr. Monique Wells’ refreshing program, Making Productivity Easy (formerly called Getting Over Overwhelm). This enlightening program is packaged in a succinct series of 6 easily digestible videos with accompanying worksheets. Initially concerned that I might just be adding to my overflowing plate, the ease of Dr. Wells’ program was the right next step for me — not overwhelming in the least. Not only did I become more aware of where I was losing time in my business, her strategies helped me fine-tune my processes to achieve more, by doing less.

One-on-One Coaching

Are you a high-achiever ready to climb to the next level FAST? I invite those entrepreneurs who want personalized, one-on-one guidance from me to implement the strategies that will boost your productivity and reduce your stress levels QUICKLY to coach with me privately.

I was fortunate enough to obtain the advice and guidance of Dr. Monique Y. Wells with regard to a special project that I kept locked in my dreams and head for many years.

I knew in my heart that this project would be a huge undertaking and would require due diligence on my part. Instead of accepting this fact, I let fear paralyze me and fill my head with self-doubt and excuses as to why I could never achieve this goal.

Monique talked me through the fears and taught me the importance of owning the time I have by planning, prioritizing and focusing on my goals.

Although I would have loved to finish this project in a day, Monique explained to me that I needed to spend most of my time dealing with things that are important, but not urgent and that working on my project over a period of time would allow me to advance towards my goals. She helped me to visualize the project in bite size pieces, building my confidence as each piece was completed.

I admit that there were times that I almost scrapped my project but I would hear Monique say “We are the masters of our time; we are the masters of our destiny”.

Monique has truly inspired me to pursue my dreams and I can say without hesitation that Dr. Monique Y. Wells is truly the “Paris Muse of Time Management”.

My coaching session with Monique exceeded my expectations. Our conversation and her questions helped me getting clarity on a number of important aspects of my business. Monique is very professional and I also feel very comfortable working with her.

Monique gets my highest recommendation as a time management coach…I appreciated her listening ability, her sharp comments, and the encouragement and understanding that created in me motivation to try new behaviors and time management strategies.

John Battistoni

Marketing coach Tim Paulson suggested that I contact Monique when I needed direction in starting a business and felt overwhelmed about the process. After an engaging meeting with her during a recent trip to Paris and researching her online, I decided to work with her. Monique helped me articulate specific goals, sharpen my focus on what I need to do to accomplish my goals, and establish a thought process for deciding what to do first to move toward them. Using her six-step system, I was able to craft an elevator speech, narrow my target audience, and begin evaluating how to incorporate virtual assistant services into my business. I have set a target date for my most important goal and am moving forward with a feeling of hope and confidence that I can achieve it.

If you want an honest, professional, knowledgeable, and considerate mentor who cares about your progress, Monique will serve you well!
