Take 15 testimonials

StJohn Miall


The elegance of the methodology coupled with Helen’s facilitation skills, honed over many years of coaching, has got deep into my system and completely nullified these old habits.

Procrastination has always been a part of my life. This, coupled with the other great ‘P’ time-waster, Perfectionism, has meant that life regularly becomes very stressful as things get put off rather than taking a more pragmatic approach to just get things done.

Participating in the Take15 Program, has has now banished procrastination from my life. Somehow the elegance of the methodology coupled with Helen’s facilitation skills, honed over many years of coaching, has got deep into my system and completely nullified these old habits.

The 15 minutes spent at the start of the day, following the five simple steps, leaves me feeling clear on my priorities for the day and a very grounded sense of what can realistically be achieved in the limited time available.

The rewards are enormous.

My mind, now clear of wrestling with trying to get everything done, purrs into action and both my creativity and productivity have blossomed.

I cannot thank Helen enough for this transformation and thoroughly recommend Take15 to anyone struggling with keeping their head above the water in this crazy world.

You won’t regret it.

My mind is clearer and my energy levels are up. Plus when I'm with my family I am actually with them, not thinking about work.

For many years I have struggled to stay consistently productive. I tried to do lists and online planning tools but nothing worked for me.

Then I found the Take 15 program.

I was blown away by the power and simplicity of the program.

I started using it immediately after the first training session and haven’t stopped since. Nor will I.

I now get all my critical work done each day and am more productive than I have ever been.

My mind is clearer and my energy levels are up. Plus when I’m with my family I am actually with them, not thinking about work.

For me Take 15 is life changing and it is the only program I have ever been through that I am comfortable saying that about.

In my view if you don’t do this program you are saying it’s OK for your day to run your life. It must be the other way around you must run your day.

I give Take 15 my highest possible endorsement.

If you are struggling with competing demands in life and in business, I highly recommend Helen's Take15 program

Thank you to Helen Ebdon for her Take15 program.

Before I did the program, I was feeling stressed and I was wasn’t getting through my never-ending to-do list.

I now happily take 15 minutes everyday to set myself up for the day and it is seriously life-changing. I feel so much more productive and efficient, and look forward to continuing to use the program for years to come.

If you are struggling with competing demands in life and in business, I highly recommend Helen’s Take15 program as I know it will work.

Thank you Helen.

I had been beating myself up, thinking I wasn't doing enough ...

Take 15 has given me a greater awareness of my actual ‘available’ time.

I had been beating myself up, thinking I wasn’t doing enough; but now, I’m not as hard on myself because I can now see that I’m more productive than I was giving myself credit for.

Last week was a stressful week, I realised, to get through it, I had to give myself space and I needed to be realistic about my expectations.

It’s only been a week, and I’m feeling so much better.

I was sceptical to begin with, but it is THE best professional development I have done in a long, long time.

I thought I was fairly organised, I had ‘to do’ lists, reminders in my calendar and red flags on my emails, but I often left work feeling like I had not finished for the day. 

Take 15 has changed the way I leave work. I start my day knowing what I want and can achieve for the day, and go home feeling that I do not have to turn my laptop on, like I used to. 

I am more efficient, I feel like I am accomplishing more. I have a much better system, I have more time for myself, and my work day is more organised. 

I was sceptical to begin with, but it is THE best professional development I have done in a long, long time. Thank you Helen.

I am now going home feeling more accomplished, happy to turn my laptop off at 6 pm. I leave work at work, and I have my weekends back.

I consider myself an organised and structured person, however, at the start of this year, I started feeling more and more overwhelmed as a never ending to do list began to build up in various aspects of my life, leaving me feeling disheartened and questioning my ability to be a successful business owner. 

After listening to Helen speak about her coaching services which assist business owners in making more efficient use of their time, feel less stressed and have a better sense of achievement – I decided to take her up on the 4-week Take 15 Program. 

It has helped me set up a more functional and productive work day and helped switch my focus to how far I have come, rather than how much I still have to achieve. I am now going home feeling more accomplished, happy to turn my laptop off at 6 pm. I leave work at work, and I have my weekends back. 

Thank you, Helen, for restoring balance to my life and introducing me to a great system. 

I’d have no hesitation recommending Helen’s services to any business owner who may be in a similar position and would like to get more control back in their life.

Even though it is a group seminar, I felt like Helen was coaching me one on one and understood my business and more importantly, my (bad) habits.

This is money WELL spent if you are a business owner – or really anybody who feels like there are not enough hours in the day. This course slowed time down for me and had me much more focussed on the tasks at hand, and therefore hitting my targets and achieving my goals much more quickly – and more often. Even though it is a group seminar, I felt like Helen was coaching me one on one and understood my business and more importantly, my (bad) habits. Highly recommend.

Who would’ve thought just 15 mins would be all the time I’d need to transform my day.

At the end of the day I had a real sense of accomplishment versus always feeling, like I haven’t done enough.
