    How to Get Sh*t Done
    February 21 - 23, 2020
    There is a fundamental, unexamined assumption that productivity means getting more stuff done. This idea has led to burn out, frustration, exhaustion, and a lack of purpose—especially for women trying to do their best work in and outside of the home. In this eye-opening weekend Erin Falconer—acclaimed author and digital entrepreneur—turns conventional man-made definitions of productivity on their head. Exit the constant swirl of fear and guilt that what you are doing is never enough and leave with tools to design a full, robust life, on your own terms.
