Hi, I'm Melissa Steginus, founder of Intentional Productivity, creator of this course, and lifelong advocate for intentionality. I want to shape and live an empowered, impactful, and fulfilling life, and I strive to help others do the same.

I began developing courses over a decade ago when I worked in frontline mental health care and strategic policy development. To support my clients, colleagues, and my own wellbeing, I practiced and shared countless tools for self awareness and empowerment, effective decision-making, and how to navigate competing priorities.

With time and intention, I compiled these tools into a framework I now use in my workshops and speaking engagements, coaching sessions, two books, and our masterclasses and live program.

This course differs from our masterclasses in that it's a mix of evidence-based exercises I've curated, applied, and adjusted based on my needs, experience, and interpretation. While I'll walk you through each one based on my application, I encourage you to play, explore, experiment, and adjust to find what works best for you.

The important thing is to let yourself get started. I'll bet you have more answers than you think or feel you do! Let's go find them.

See you inside,


Get clear on your big picture and feel confident making decisions that support what you value.
