As a new entrepreneur and small business owner, you owe it to yourself to make sure that you are one of the 10% of new businesses that succeed and not one of the 90% that fail.  With the right strategies and the tools & techniques that we will share with you at Productivity Powerhouse you can recapture your power instantly.

We provide training through a series of live sessions, webinars, on-line courses and productivity tools, including our unique proprietary software, Daily Life Tracker.


After a 27 year career in finance, the last 16 as CFO, I finally committed the terrifying and incredibly exciting act of jumping ship from the big corporate world to follow my dreams. I set about creating a framework around the methods and techniques that I have used throughout my 27 year career, which took me from being a young auditor, travelling to about 20 different countries in 2 ½ years, to Finance Director during a Management Buy Out, to buying and selling several businesses all around the world and finally to selling the original business.


That’s where Productivity Powerhouse was born; I distilled everything down from my experience into a structure which I call The Five Pillars of Awesome. Because I have been through the same challenges that you are going through I am uniquely placed to bring you the most cutting edge information in whatever format suits you and your schedule best. 

We have only one life and yet it constantly surprises me at how people will let this most valuable of commodities slip through their fingers.  The worst feeling on earth must be that of regret and no-one wants to be lying on their death bed starting their final words with “I Wish…” or “If only ….”.  The way to avoid this is to make sure that you are making the very best use of every moment.

Daily Life Tracker is our exclusive Productivity Software created to be the only tool or system that you need to manage and take control of your whole life.

  • Help you to build consistent actions to produce extraordinary results

Stress is one of the biggest problems in our society today, but if you can take control of your life through the master skill of Productivity you can vastly reduce your stress levels, as you make progress towards your significant goals in all of the different areas of your life.

John Challinor | Life Advantage

The content was thorough and informative. A clear framework using his personally created ‘Five Pillars of Awesome’ and ‘Daily Life Tracker’. The course came at a perfect time for me.

Laura Macfarlane | Utility Warehouse

Daily Life Tracker is a great tool for keeping you on track and making sure that you follow through with your promises. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to improve any aspect of their life that they feel they are just not having time for.

James Love | Intellectual Property Attorney

When we are developing our business, writing a book and coming up with new programs, setting time aside for all of these tasks is always difficult, but a few minutes a day encouraged by Daily Life Tracker allows us to keep ourselves on target.

Louise Trevatt | Life Coach

One of the biggest challenges I’ve faced over the years is maintaining focus on what is most important. Your software not only reminds me of that, it also presents me with the “path“ I need to follow across all aspects of my life on a daily basis. Every so often you come across something that makes a real difference in your life. This is most definitely one of them!

Richard Bartlett | Business Consultant

A very informative and well-presented workshop with lots of thought provoking insights and practical tips that I can use every day to improve my use of time and increase my productivity.

Sarah Liddle | Brickyard Business Support

Anyone looking to move their life forward can use the system to highlight the areas where they need to refocus.

Steve Chesterman | IT Manager

It was a real pleasure and privilege to attend Carl’s 5 Pillars of Awesome course. For me he has created a system that can cure procrastination, develop good habits, instill a great work life balance that together, enable you to become more productive, more successful. and subsequently happier too.

What I Learned from 365 Consecutive Days of Exercise!

Now before we start, I am no athlete!  I am 6 foot 1 inch tall and started this process at 242 pounds.  Not really endurance runner stature.  But now I exercise consistently every day and can run a half marathon at the drop of a hat.  Recently I challenged myself to run 10 mile per day for 10 days before leaving for work, which I am pleased to say I completed.
