“Marie is one of the most knowledgeable Notion users in the world”
Ivan Zhao, CEO + Founder of Notion
You’ve gone down the Notion rabbit-hole but quickly got overwhelmed. You binge-watched how-to videos on YouTube for hours instead of writing those blog posts you had planned.
You see the potential of this powerful, all-in-one productivity tool, but don’t know how to fully harness it.
Maybe you tried loading some of the pre-made templates into your account, and got frustrated because they’re not useful enough on their own. They’re not part of a bigger more integrated system.
If you find yourself feeling scattered and spread across different tools, platforms, apps, and paper planners…
Since 2018 I’ve been consulting with individuals and business owners, helping them use Notion to create their life and business operating systems and workflows.
I’ve seen the most common challenges, hiccups, and missing pieces that most entrepreneurs and teams struggle with when trying to streamline their operations.
I’ve condensed my best practices and workflows into a robust online course and community to support you through the process of going from scattered to streamlined with Notion.
Let me show you what is possible with this incredible tool!
In Notion Mastery there are 4 Levels with 4 Tracks to explore, followed by a series of side quests & rabbit-holes that guide you through more specific niche use cases for Notion.
You’ll kickstart your workspace build with a database component kit, and build up your databases and workspaces one area at a time to reduce overwhelm.
Whether you are just getting started or you’re an intermediate to advanced user, you’ll get ideas and inspiration for new ways to streamline your workflow.
In Level 2 you’ll begin to manage and manipulate your data through the design of elegant Dashboards across different areas of your life and business.
You’ll integrate more advanced filtering, views, sorts, and simple formulas, and use Notion as your central productivity and knowledge hub.
In Level 3 you’ll continue to streamline and customize your Notion workspace with more advanced features to further customize your dashboards.
Go deeper on niche use cases, and build out custom dashboards for different areas of your life and business.
This level contains a variety of choose-your-own-adventure lessons across a range of use cases, along with advanced examples and templates.

No need to take the majority of online course, just take the ones that rock. Part Time You Tube Academy by @AliAbdaal and Notion Mastery by @mariepoulin were my best investments in education this year. Worth.every.penny. I hear @fortelabs and @david_perell have 👍courses too. https://t.co/LiwGNDWxAc— Monica Lim (@monicalimco) November 26, 2020
Notion is ideal for you if you want more granular control over your task management, goal setting, and personal knowledge management systems, and value integration.
Let me show you how to supercharge your Notion workspace to manage your entire life and business.
Over 1,700 students have gone through the course since it launched in 2019!
“Marie’s course has totally changed the way that I think and work and the way that I organize my projects. Notion is so limitless, and when you get into it without guidance, it’s hard to figure out how to make it all flow. The course allowed me to speed up the process of creating my systems, and I probably would have given up if I hadn’t had the course!
Definitely sign up for this course—get into Notion, it will make your life better.”

Back in 2017 I tried Notion for the first time, and it didn’t quite “click”. I knew it had potential, but wasn’t sure how to harness it.
It wasn’t until I decided to try using Notion to help me plan my Permaculture diploma (a messy, long-term project requiring lots of documentation, resources, imagery, notes, and both short + long-term planning) that I began to see what was possible, and why this tool was so incredible.
As a die-hard (paid) Evernote + Asana + Dropbox + Google Drive user, I was frustrated that my planning, tasks, files, and resources felt disconnected and fragmented.
I knew Asana wasn’t great for high-level thinking and ideation, and Evernote wasn’t great for task management…
I took a chance and moved all of my processes, tasks, resources, and documentation over to Notion, and it was a complete game-changer. I was finally able to build a system that worked for my brain.
I could finally visualize all my work and commitments and got a grip on where my time and effort was going (compared to where I thought it was going).
In 2021 I was diagnosed with ADHD, and I began to finally understand even more deeply why Notion was truly a life-changing tool for me.
I was so smitten with the tool, I shared it with everyone who would listen… and the rest is history.
Hot Seats are an ongoing bi-weekly virtual event that attracts hundreds of Notion users who are eager to learn how to get the most out of this tool.
Each session we help a new startup solve a unique challenge in their Notion workspace in real-time. We cover different topics and use cases for both beginners and advanced Notion users alike, in order to help show you the depth of possibilities with this tool.
There is such a diverse group of people in Notion Mastery, and there’s a wide range of experience with regards to Notion, organizational skills, and technical abilities. Some people “click” with Notion right away, while others take more time.
Some students binge-watch the content and set their workspace up over the course of a few weeks; others chip away at it over the course of months.
Everyone’s needs are so unique, and not all course content will apply to your use cases. The course has foundational content alongside “resource library”-style content that gets updated frequently, and you can revisit anytime.
This is why I offer the course as a semi-guided self study; many students come back to the material again and again; the office hours give you the chance to come and get clarity and support at your own pace.
The content is a mix of text, images, gifs, video screen-sharing, and templates. This gives a range of options for different learning preferences. There are also transcripts of all video calls, which are also tagged in case you want to dive in to a specific category of discussion. All videos have closed captioning available.
I love solving interesting use cases with Notion, so when I notice participants having the same questions and curiosities, I create new templates and videos to explore niche use cases. I typically make small course updates weekly, and more substantial updates (new videos and templates) monthly. Have a use case you want to see me cover? Post your suggestion or request in the community forum.
You’ll have 12 months access to the course curriculum, templates, live calls and community.
Yes! While this course assumes you are familiar with Notion (you’ve downloaded the app and checked it out), the basics are all covered to make sure you have everything you need to understand the core features of Notion quickly.
Notion is excellent if you find your existing tool stack limited and fragmented, and are seeking more control over how you visualize your planning and day to day execution. Think of Notion as a giant box of Lego pieces where you get to decide how you want it to look and function, vs a pre-made Lego “kit.”
If you want something that just “works” out of the box without any effort, or you aren’t sure that Notion is the tool for you, this course may not be a good fit for you.
Notion is ideal for you if customization of your workflow is a top priority, and you want more granular control over your systems.
Aiming for 3-6 months to fully implement Notion is a grounded expectation and good place to start.
Most tools and applications start with a framework that users need to adopt to one degree or another. With Notion, you have complete flexibility to build it however you like.
While there are plenty of Notion Consultants that will design and build your Notion Workspace for you, we take a different approach.
In order to leverage Notion to its greatest potential, we believe your team will want to understand the technical mechanics of Notion and then develop your own best practices creating a dynamic and collaborative workspace.
Notion’s flexibility comes with the need to learn both how to use the tool, and how to create the systems and structure that make your business function smoothly from day-to-day, inside your Notion workspace.
In order to transition to Notion you will need to identify your team’s Notion architect. They will learn the tool deeply, guide your system setup and support your team during the transition to Notion.
If you are looking for “out of the box” project management, Notion might not be the best tool for you.
Live calls typically take place between 9AM and 6PM Pacific Time. Recordings for Office Hours, Hot Seats and Workshops are shared within 3 business days of the live call.
This course is a digital educational product that gives you instant access to all of the material and templates as soon as you get access to the course, and as such is non-refundable.
