How to beat overwhelm (so you can have a business and a life)

Mindset and skillset for solopreneurs and small business owners

Are you so overwhelmed you can't get anything done?

Overwhelm is the most common problem solopreneurs and small business owners struggle with. There’s just too much to do, not enough time to do it, and just when we think we have things under control, another emergency pops up.

So we run harder. We're sprinting a marathon, jumping from one task to the next and frantically rescuing things we should have had done long ago. And when we look back, we're dismayed we got so little done.

You're not alone.

There's a lot to do, we have to do it all and we can't make more time.

You can get out of overwhelm

While we can’t reduce the amount of work that needs to be done, we can get better at managing it. And when we get better at managing overwhelm, we get stuff done faster.

In The (no more) Overwhelm Manual, you will learn:

  • why we get overwhelmed (we're trying to solve an inherently unsolvable problem in our heads),
  • the 4-step process for getting out of overwhelm (the first step is getting it all out of your head), and
  • how to stay out of it (it's much easier the next time it happens).

This is a practical how-to guide, short on theory and long on practice. I use it myself, and I teach the exact same methodologies to anyone who will sit still for a few minutes.

What you will find here

My business (and therefore this website), is dedicated to helping solopreneurs and small business owners build a profitable business faster—and have a life as well.

The "have a life" bit is particularly important for me personally (and I think to most of us). You can read more about why this is so important to me here.

Free stuff

I publish regular articles on topics from productivity to marketing to how-to's. You can also sign up for my newsletter to get weekly updates and info on the latest articles. And there are free goodies here.

Products and services

I make money from my products and services. I'm in the process of re-packaging my products, so the list is pretty small now—but as I get through the process I will be adding more.

What you won’t find here

Hype, sleaze or hard sell. I hate it, so I don't do it.

What makes Britewrx different?

There are two things that makes the stuff here different from every other small business website:

1. The Tornado Method

When I started out as a solopreneur, I was really frustrated that I couldn't find a list of all the things I needed to do to build a successful business (and still have a life).

So I created the "list". It's called the Tornado Method, and a lot of what you'll find on this website refers back to it. Read more about it here.

2. Bite-sized learning

It's so easy to "shock and awe" with a ton of information—but that doesn't help you build your business (and just leads to overwhelm). So all of my products and free stuff is based on the idea that we learn best when we learn one small thing at a time—and then move on to the next bit.

Welcome to Calgary

I live in the beautiful city of Calgary, in the province of Alberta in Canada. The winters can be long and cold, but we get a lot of blue skies (even in winter) and the summers are gorgeous. Calgary consistently ranks as one of the top 50 cities in the world to live in.
