About the author

My name is Georgie-Ann Getton-Mckoy. I am an Execution Strategist. That means that I analyze your current resources and circumstances in order to help you build a realistic and attainable plan to execute on your business ideas. 

In my personal life, I'm a mom of 2 and a wife. In my professional life, I'm a serial entrepreneur, community builder, speaker, author, and a Diversity in Tech Enthusiast. I hold a B.S in Business Communications with a specialization in Graphic Communications from Baruch College and a Certificate in Entrepreneurship Essentials from HBX | Harvard Business School. I enjoy learning as well as teaching new and creative ways to find solutions to problems.

I was born in Kingston, Jamaica . At the age of seven, my Mom, two brothers, along with various uncles, aunts, and cousins all immigrated to the US. The majority of my time was spent living in the Bronx, NY but at the age of 15 my mother sent me to live with my father's side of family who resided in Baldwin & Freeport, NY. I resisted the entire move but unknown to me, my life was about to change forever.

The Baldwin Community and school opened my eyes to what I'd only seen on TV thus far - affluent black people who were in upper-middle class or simply rich. I saw the "American Dream" that so many had talked about and it seemed more attainable than ever at this point. I started warming up to this community and they accepted all my ways that in the past were labeled as "nerdy and quirky". I was feeling motivated and welcomed!

Then six months later, I turned 16 and became pregnant while in the 11th grade. At this time, I made a decision that would change the rest of my life. With doubts, fear, shame, and disappointment oozing from family and friends around me, I realized it was time to activate my  "Getting Sh*t Done" aka GSD abilities. 

My life has been a beautiful rollercoaster since. From launching various companies, some failing miserably to others making over $100k, being on food stamps, suffering from depression, graduating college, attending Harvard and much more.  

Now at the age of 23, I have continued to Get Sh*t Done and teach others how to do the same regardless of their resources or circumstances.

Synopsis

This book was written to show dreamers and doers the beautiful magic and creativity that goes into getting shit done. You'll want to read this book if you're either an entrepreneur, creative, innovator or someone who aspires to be one of the above; you're struggling with your to-do-list and things keep getting in your way, stopping you from following through and you’re ready for a change; or, you want to get into a less-dreaming, more-doing state of mind. 

After years of going through the paces of "getting shit done," regardless of whether resources were available to me or not, and of course life obstacles, I decided to share these experiences and misadventures with you on how I was able to activate and use my GSD abilities and how you can too! 

You can use this book as inspiration! You'll learn some hacks and a process to boost your productivity and most importantly you'll learn how to maximize any resource you have. This book will be a crazy, yet beautiful roller coaster. 

Are you ready to Get Sh*t Done?

Outline

Less Dreaming, More Doing 

In this section I discuss who I am and why my story matters. Most importantly, why it took me 3 years to finish this book.

The GSD Manifesto 

The 13 principals and components of getting shit done.

Resourceful AF 

How I was born with the resourcefulness gene and how my upbringing and life allowed it to manifest and grow into my strongest skill that helps me get shit done.

Just Do It 

Our fears often get in the way of our success. But I fought to put my fears aside to get my first job, launch my first business and strike out on my own all while being a teen mom.  

Virtuous Mind  

After a streak of success, I began suffering from depression and anxiety. This almost took over my life until a personal revelation happened that put me back on track. 

Power Of Broke 

How being broke allowed me to excel and be a great entrepreneur in the early days

Doing Sh*t For Free 

The ins and out of social capital that became thousands of dollars worth of real capital down the line

Create Value

How to create long-lasting value so that you are always relevant 

Show up 

How to be present and show up every day and why it matters

Google That Sh!t 

How googling allowed me to get jobs, clients, and land millionaire mentors and other opportunities

Network = Net Worth $$ 

How I networked my ass off and made money through just meeting people (and you can too )

Be Humble  

How being humble and a little naive allowed me to get even further on my entrepreneurial journey 

Level Up 

To wrap up this adventure I share where I am now and how I leveled up from just working hard to now, working hard and smart.

Audience

My target readers are dreamers who aspire to become entrepreneurs but are stuck dreaming with the fear of execution. My niche focus is people who have given up on their dreams thinking they cannot achieve them because of lack of resources, or life circumstances that won't allow them to Get Sh*t Done.

My book is relevant because all the cards were stacked against me and with the art of getting sh*t done, I was able to persevere and overcome. My goal is to share this with others and help them do the same.

Whether they are at a crossroads due to some life-changing experience they have a desire to use those emotions to strike change but not sure how or where to start, this book will help them tremendously.

Promotion

I plan to leverage my email list of 1.5K and my social media platforms.

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.

Note from the Author.

Hey Reader,

This note is going to be quick and to the point. Here I am at 1:21am on Saturday, July 15th, 2017 FINALLY writing this guide. I started it on November 5th 2016, after I held the very first Get Shit Done summit in NYC. I would write bits in a notebook, other bits in my phone, more bits on post-it notes. Just a shit ton of bits everywhere. No more bits! I have decided it’s time to get in front of the computer and Get This Shit Done!

First, who the heck am I? My name is Georgie-Ann Getton-Mckoy yes, it’s a mouthful, so most people call me Georgie and I’m totally fine with that. I am currently 22 years old, Baruch College graduate with a B.S in Graphic Communications as of June 2017, mother to Cameron and Bryanna and wife to Bryan, Founder of Illicit Mind Inc, Entrepreneur, Diversity in Tech Enthusiast, speaker and last but not least the Queen of Getting shit done.

 Second, why should you read this book? If you want to develop a doer mindset this is the book you read. I’ve had to step out of my comfort zone, push my limits, become super resourceful, and literally reprogram my entire mindset to get where I am today. I want to share that information with you so that you can too. You should read this book if you want to stop wasting time and start Getting Shit Done.

Third, what should you expect? Expect the unexpected! That’s what you should expect. Expect a bunch of grammatical errors, whatever Grammarly free version doesn’t pick up will stay. Expect a bunch of shits, fucks, damns and more, I mean you decided to read a book called The Art of Getting Shit Done so I assume “sentence enhancers” won’t offend you. Expect me to be raw and real, I will NOT be sugar coating anything. If you don’t like the truth, well, wrong book sis.

Fourth, we’ve already wasted enough time. Let’s get this shit done already!
