How Old is Holly?

Well, she’s in her 20s, but that’s as far as Graham dared go!

Who Does Holly Serve?

So, what does Holly do? Holly is an accountability coach for business owners and people working a 9-5 job who want to start a business.

Graham asked whether people are sceptical about being able to 10x performance. She explains it’s a limiting mindset that doesn’t think they can 10x something. Everyone can do better are what they are constantly doing.


It’s not just about becoming twice as busy, but twice as productive. Do that in the same time and you’re golden!

How do you become more productive?

Wakes at 5 am
30mins to get up, maybe do some affirmations.
90mins to ‘smash out something she needs to get done that day. MIT’s Most Important Tasks. Kevin says if something isn’t done by 11 am it’s not likely going to get done.

She doesn’t eat first thing, as she trains her body to accept fewer calories.

PH360 – hers is an ACTIVATOR body type. She knows when to sleep, when to eat, when to lift weights and when she’s most creative – for Holly, it’s 6 to 7 pm.

Holly assesses people by looking at what they do in each hour of the day.

There are 2 secrets:

– BE ACCOUNTABLE TO SOMEONE (That’s where Holly comes in).

Graham referenced ‘being fierce’ in our podcast with Simona Spilak – Episode 253

Rather than getting in someone’s face, Holly is kind but direct. She’ll tell you that you’ve missed that deadline and put yourself back a week. She could almost be an honorary Yorkshire-woman. Imagine Holly with a Yorkshire accent!

That beauty competition…
