Here's What Other Creative Giants Have to Say
"Charlie has this unique ability to turn, what can be, creative chaos into a calm and concrete strategic plan. I've been following Charlie for almost six years now and can attest a proportion of my own success directly to the ideas, models and resources." – Rob Lawrence
"I was so thrilled to find out that I could easily implement Charlie's methods to a stalled project, and finally get it under way with a clearer view of getting it finished. He looks at the entire picture - not just what need to get done, but an honest analysis of what could get in the way too. This methodology is the first I've used that makes me feel like I have a realistic grasp on what I'm doing, and what I need to get done. " – Sam Hunter
"Productive Flourishing is a great resource that has helped me to become more effective. I love that the advice isn’t just for office workers. Everything from the planners to the blog helps to create structure and momentum for those of us carving our own furrow — creatives, freelancers and entrepreneurs. Charlie really understands the challenges we face and has clear insight into how we can overcome them." – Rebecca Nicholls
