Comfort will ruin your life.

Educo Community's programs

After documenting and researching over 75,000+ coaching interactions in the workplace, EcSell Institute President Bill Eckstrom knows just how dangerous it can be to remain in a state of comfort.

In this program, Bill draws upon EcSell Institute's scientific research and proven development strategies to help you achieve sustainable growth by confronting and conquering your discomfort. Discomfort is not hardship, rather discomfort signals that you are pushing yourself to face a new challenge. This discomfort leads to sustained and exponential growth.

You’ll be amazed at the world-changing outcomes a little discomfort can have on your life and the lives of others.

Join Bill as he guides you through EcSell Institute's research-based process of pushing your comfort zone and unlocking your potential. See what you can accomplish by embracing the science of "getting out of your comfort zone" in the weeks to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do programs use the Question Method?
The best way to provide advice from afar is for an expert to ask you the right questions that will help you learn the right processes to come up with the answer that is best for that situation. Each program will help guide you towards a plan by asking you the questions that will help you solve the problem. It is the principle of: “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”
Where do my answers go?
After completing the program you will see your answers on your Dashboard, as well as in an email report sent to you. Your Dashboard is an action-oriented application that will help you apply the expert guidance to your life.
How long does it take to complete the program?
Each program takes roughly 15 to 30 minutes to complete. However, they are designed to help you think through your problems, and you may come up with a solution and a plan before going through the entire thing.
Is there a way to track my progress or look at my answers within the program?
Yes, this can be done in your Dashboard.
Can I come back if I don’t have time to go through all the steps?
Yes. The programs are built for use when and where you need them. You may come and go as you please.
Why do I have to buy a subscription?
Unlike an online course or a book, these programs are built for long-term use and continual improvement.
Which package is right for me?
That depends on how much accountability you need. The Thive package is our most popular choice because it also includes Educo Community's Get Problems Solved. So often the ability to achieve our goals is derailed because of the problems of everyday life. No matter which package you choose you will be taking a step towards improving your quality of life.
What if I am unhappy with this program?
We would never want you to be unhappy. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
