Hacking Life Through Improved Productivity With Demir Bentley

Demir Bentley is a nationally recognized Productivity and Performance Coach. He and his wife, Carey, founded Lifehack Bootcamp, a company that creates programs that allow people to pursue happy and successful lives through increased productivity and fewer working hours. He has been featured in multiple publications such as Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post and has been featured as an expert guest on CNBC and other media outlets. Prior to starting the Lifehack Bootcamp, Demir was a successful CEO of a technology company, so he knows what it’s like to be overworked and have no time for your family.


Demir joins me to discuss his passion for being more productivity with less time. He shares what drove him to become more productive and why he decided to leave his position as CEO. He explains how Lifehack Bootcamp helps individuals and why he’s not fond of working with tech CEOs. Demir also describes the upcoming Lifehack Summit 2019 and what to expect from that event.


“Productivity without effectiveness and a real clear vision of where you’re going is actually counterproductive.” - Demir Bentley
