Discover What Works For You In 20 Minutes Per Day So You Can…
Simplify, Prioritize, and Thrive
Running a business doesn’t have to feel frantic, overwhelming, or turbulent when you build smart habits.
Build Your “Do What Works” Habit In 20 Minutes Or Less
But—let’s face it—it’s easy to fixate on the tasks at hand (ahem, getting your must-do work done) while you lose track of the habits that could make you a more productive business owner and make your business more profitable.
And all the while, the anxiety that you’re missing out on something new, exciting, or game-changing grows and grows.
We’ll help you simplify your business and melt away the anxiety by spending 20 minutes or less on what works for you over the course of 100 days.
Start Your Day With What Works
100 Days of What Works delivers a prompt, experiment, or idea for re-examining your business every week day for 100 days.
Over these 100 days, you’ll develop new CEO habits: reflection, analysis, evaluation, and planning. You’ll incorporate working on your business into your every day routine—and doing it in community with others so you never feel alone.
The goal isn’t to tell you how to run your business but, instead, to uncover the information you’ve missed (or forgotten) as you’ve built it.
You’ll look closely at your business from all different angles—some will be familiar, some will be new, and some might be uncomfortable or challenging. Throughout the process, you’ll receive new ways of seeing at your business and how it works.
Each day’s task can be completed in 20 minutes or less—but can also help you discover profound and long-lasting insights into what works for you and your business.
- On Mondays, we’ll tackle marketing & sales.
- On Tuesdays, we’ll examine business operations.
- On Wednesdays, we’ll get real about money.
- On Thursdays, we’ll dig into product & business model development.
- And on Fridays, we’ll lean into mindset—and give you the weekend to chew it over.

You’re A Perfect Fit For 100 Days Of What Works If…
100 Days Of What Works was designed for the experienced business owner. You’ve been running your business for at least a year and you’ve experienced both some ups and some downs of being your own boss.
Things have leveled out (or they’re starting to feel that way) and you’re ready to commit to giving time and attention to how the business works—and, most importantly, what works for you and your unique business.
🥇You might be an over-achiever who is regularly bumping up against burn out and wants a path for more sustainable progress toward your goals.
🧜🏽♀️You might be a rebel who is craving a bit of structure so you can feel free to play while also feeling confident you’re getting closer to your goals.
🗓You might be a classic multi-tasker who wants some relief from feeling pulled in a million different directions.
🧠Or, you might be a diligent deliberator who wants to focus more on taking concrete action instead of wondering what the right next step is.
You’ll get the most from this program if:
- You are willing to commit to giving it some time—just 20 minutes per day—and attention every day
- But you won’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t stay perfectly up to date with each activity
- You love to learn with others and want to be part of a bigger conversation about what’s really working (and what’s just hype)
- You’re willing to work the process and don’t demand immediate results or overnight success (’cause nobody can guarantee those things)
- You’re committed to working on yourself in other ways too (because doing what works is a whole life experience)

Frequently Asked Questions
Does this program work if I’m just getting started with my business?
No. This program assumes you have experience as a business owner to look back on, analyze, and plan from.
If you’re just starting out, we encourage you to focus on finding 1 offer that sells consistently and spend the next 6 months just learning the ropes of how it works for you. Once you’ve done that, then 100 Days of What Works can help you build on your initial success.
Can I access all of the activities at once?
No. This program is designed to help you build a habit without overwhelming you. You wouldn’t decide to run a marathon and then try for 26.2 miles the next day, would you? I hope not.
The key to real progress is to complete these activities little by little.
Can I receive each day’s email in my own time zone?
This is the first time we’re offering this program and we’re not able to provide local time zone support for email this time through.
However, each day’s activities will update in the late afternoon inside The What Works Network. So if you’re outside of North America, you will still be able to access the work in the morning. All you’ll need to do is visit the site!
We recommend setting a reminder on your calendar for each weekday with a link to the program page.
How do I apply what I’m learning about myself and my business to my daily actions?
That’s exactly what our support network is for! You’ll have the opportunity to share your work every day and talk with others who are discovering what works for them. These conversations are the perfect place to flesh out how you’ll incorporate what you’re learning into your daily actions.
Plus, you can use our Q&A sessions to get ideas for further applying your discoveries.
Finally, be patient. Each week, you’ll add a new layer to your learning and discover new ways to apply your findings.
Do I really have time for this?
It’s 20 minutes per day. Seriously.
Certainly, you can spend more time than that sharing your work, talking things out with other experienced business owners, and applying what you’ve discovered.
But that’s time you’ll save in the long run since you’ll be avoiding all the lost time that comes from second-guessing yourself and chasing strategy that isn’t your own.
You don’t have time to not focus on what works.
What if I get behind?
If you get a few days behind (or you take a week off for vacation), don’t sweat it! Pick it back up with the next activity you receive. Don’t try to make up for lost work–that just makes it worse!
Remember that each of the activities are there for you when you’re ready.
What’s your refund policy?
We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee because it’s the right thing to do. And, we also know that it’s easy to let yourself off the hook when you commit to a new daily habit.
So before you ask for a refund, check-in with yourself and make sure that you truly don’t believe the program is right for you–and not that you’ve gotten behind or you’re feeling overwhelmed.
Do I need to join a Facebook group?
Nope! The What Works Network is a private, dedicated space online. We don’t want to be on Facebook any more than you do.
