The Asian Mrs Blanding

Hi, I’m Joanna Blanding.

I’m so excited that you're taking this course. I know that you have precious dreams and desires in your mind and heart to do something for the world. You are, for sure, already on that path—with the many roles you take in life. So, well done to you! Your desire to do even more is natural. We are all wired to do great things. And TIME is the commodity that you need right now that you can’t ever buy. Buy you can make it with the hours that you have. I’m here to help you.

Like you, I was once frustrated for a long time for not having time to pursue my dream to give back to the world. Here are some more info about me:

I’ve designed courses and training for thousands of people.

I was a consultant and content writer for four years designing e-learning for companies like HP, Google, and Cisco.

I master productivity in all aspects of my life.

I continuously learn new ways to be productive, in a purpose-focused way—the kind of productivity that I talk about in the course!

I love teaching about productivity.

Since 2016, I’ve been coaching people on personal productivity and digital decluttering through workshops & one-on-one coaching, over 300 students to date.

I founded Giving is Social in 2013.

This was the dream I put on hold for many years, until I finally made a decision to make time for it. This giving back initiative has transformed my life in a positive way.

I run The Asian Blandings Collective.

It’s a multi-brand company developing purpose-driven content and services for creators.

I’m a wife and a mother.

I know how important time management is when managing a household as a priority role, and I love doing it!
