Ridiculously Efficient® is about doing more in less time... with less stress and more joy.
It’s a mindset that reinforces courage, collaboration and continuous growth in every aspect of your life.
Curated, emotionally intelligent strategies for survthriving in a complicated, ever-changing world.
You are highly capable, talented and productive. You're the one everyone counts on to deliver results.
But sometimes, you find it hard to tap into your usual ambition or willpower. Maybe your Saturdays are spent catching up on work, laundry and sleep instead of relaxing, exploring or creating. Or maybe you’re getting everything done, but you aren't prioritizing your health or showing up for your partner, friends or family in the way that you'd like to.
You're not alone... and it's not your fault.
High performers, especially ambitious ones, tend to take on more than most people. And because we often make it work, get it done, and produce the intended result, the cycle continues, and we enable our own exhaustion, stress and overwhelm.
No surprise this proverb has circulated since the 1800s: "If you need something done, ask a busy person."
The trouble is that high performers don't have access to relevant, actionable wisdom on how to integrate life and work.
That’s because most people don’t get us and how we operate.
Most business productivity books and time management "systems" are one-size-fits-all solutions that satisfy a very specific need. They’re like disposable bandages that don't address why the wound happens in the first place. Or they're authored by gurus who regurgitate the same strategies they used back in 2008.
The world is changing... faster every day. The rules on success, thriving and staying relevant are constantly being rewritten.
The Ridiculously Efficient® methodology is totally different. It's a brand-new way of integrating work and life based on who you are, not just what you do.
Inside our dedicated app and members' website, we curate unconventional, energizing perspectives on modern work-life alignment. We discuss topics like:
the types of work tasks we uniquely should work on, and key activities we should almost always delegate
how to use our "superhero skills" to create fulfilling careers and lifestyles
how to manage stress and improve resilience
how to transition from "busy and burned out" to "fierce and fulfilled"
how to leverage transformative technologies and optimize virtual collaboration
everyday lifestyle hacking and "adulting"
Ridiculously Efficient is a community where ambitious, resourceful professionals come together to receive the inspiration, connection, and unconventional strategies they need to simplify their lives. If these values resonate with you, we'd love to welcome you to our global family.
“Marissa has changed my life. Dead serious. I’m personally working more efficiently and feeling more energized at work. I’ve been inspired to optimize a long-term strategy for my foundation by leveraging technology and community. My confidence as a leader has improved because I no longer feel alone — I feel empowered and supported. All of this, because I invested in the Ridiculously Efficient community and began implementing Marissa’s strategies and tactics I’ve learned from other members. The mindset reinforcement alone makes this investment an automatic HELL YES for any growth-oriented professional."

"It is not every day that we cross paths with someone whose vision is so sharp and well formulated that it can change the way we see things. That is exactly what happened to me when Marissa Brassfield and her Ridiculously Efficient platform came into my life. Whenever I encounter a professional situation that has me feeling stuck or unsteady, Marissa is a source I can turn to for clarity and guidance. She has an awe-inspiring way of helping me focus on key takeaways, while I successfully let go of the rest. Marissa and her RE community have helped me launch a successful freelance career, and have given me the courage to embrace my entrepreneurial spirit. I don't know where I would be without her."

Hey there! I'm Marissa Brassfield, founder and work-life muse of Ridiculously Efficient®.
By day, I'm a secret weapon for visionary entrepreneurs, helping them implement and communicate world-changing ideas.
I've launched products, organized experiences and recruited teams that have driven hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue. I've led meetings in tiny boardrooms with government figures, Fortune 100 executives, and global leaders like Peter Diamandis, Ray Kurzweil, Tony Robbins, Tim Ferriss and Arianna Huffington. My perspectives on work-life integration and productivity have been featured in print and online publications like Entrepreneur, Lifehacker, The Muse, the Huffington Post and Forbes.
In over a decade of working closely with world-renowned CEOs, I've gotten a hands-on education in the habits and power principles you don't ever find in books or MBA programs.
And I've also personally experienced burnout and the negative consequences of a lifestyle that revolved around work. In June 2019, I embarked on a work-life reinvention in which I took 2.5 months off and renegotiated every relationship in my life.
I'm finally in a place where I can confidently say I'm doing my best work and living my best life. No more tradeoffs.
Here's what's important... I took a few secrets with me on how to reinvent without losing credibility.
These secrets are what separate "busy yet talented people controlled by others" from "people who are authoring their own lives with true freedom of time."
They are the same for you and me as they are for self-made centimillionaires and billionaires:
Easier said than done... which is why I created the Ridiculously Efficient Community. It's the only place dynamic and flexible enough to discuss the everyday challenges of a high-performance life.
My goal is to help you renegotiate your relationships for true time freedom, in a way that's authentic to your lifestyle and your passions.
I'm doing this because my WHY is to inspire a higher operational standard. I believe we become Ridiculously Efficient® when we've aligned work and life to leverage our individual superpowers, and our relationship with time changes as a natural byproduct of this connected alignment.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. The future I want to live in is filled with people who spend each day feeling fulfilled and energized, rather than overwhelmed, burned out and exhausted... because creativity and imagination are how we change the world.
Here's my promise to you, and what you'll get from me as a member of this community:
The insider knowledge, experience-based wisdom and elite mentorship within this private space will help you level up every aspect of your life.
This community is about actionable growth, which is why we offer a 30-day free trial. If you don’t find the Ridiculously Efficient Community to be full of intelligent, kind and generous high performers you can collaborate with to level up your work and life, there's no obligation to pay.
Our members spend an average of 7 minutes on the site a day, perusing daily workflow hacks, communication tactics and mindset shifts proven to optimize your performance and achievements... without creating more work.
Many new members start off by trading 10 minutes of social media time for 10 minutes on the #EfficientAF app. That's how easy it is to build a new habit of continuous growth.
The only way to know for sure is to see for yourself -- which is why we offer a 30-day, full-feature trial.
Nope! We have courses and mini challenges to help you level up your skills, but we are also social. Our Members Near You feature connects you with community members in your city. Or join our Virtual Happy Hour meetups, community webinars and AMAs for live interactions with our team and members from around the world.
