About The Teacher


I'm Richard Conner, I'm an Author, Architect and Artist and I'll be your teacher for the 'Save The Day' Unlock Your Time and Creativity, 8 Hours in 8 Days with 8 Lessons FREE Course.

Until recently, for 20+ years I was working as creative director and architect in the award winning practice I co-founded and as the joint CEO and Managing Director of my co-owned Design Week Top 100 international creative agency. After starting my career as a hybrid freelancer employee, my group of companies quickly grew to employ over 50 staff in 5 cities in 4 countries with $5M+ in annual revenue.

To cut a long story short, after countless years of relentless 50-90 hour work weeks, unhappy and unfulfilled I decided to quit. I then spent a long time (some of it living in a cave) processing what I'd experienced building the businesses I'd been so driven to put out into the world. Contrary to what I'd envisioned at the start of my entrepreneurial journey I did not end up with the time, money or freedom to pursue my creativity in the way I wanted and needed to. Given this was the very thing that led me on the entrepreneur path at the outset of my career I knew I had to make a change and a significant one at that.

It turns out I had everything the wrong way round and upside down. I had some intelligence and more than a little talent, but while I had hard-won skills and the battle scars to prove it, it turned out I lacked smarts. It took me years, of trial and error and what I call 'forced feedback' for the lessons to finally hit home and sink in long enough so I could make a change, even a small one.

'What could you do with an extra 8 hours a week?
S
tart ... work on ... grow your business ...?'

Now, I spend my time as an author, architect, and artist, taking on only the projects I want to, when I want to. Most of the time I'm being my own client, and I am free to explore my creativity as I see fit. Occasionally I take on coaching clients, but only rarely because If I spend too much time on other people's problems and opportunities, I neglect my creativity all over again.

I've spent two solid years distilling what I've learned over twenty. I've written books and developed this course. Communicating in this way leverages my time and creativity and serves far more people than I could possibly hope to help directly on my own. It's the foundation stone of greater freedoms and creativity to come.

This course can teach you how to achieve the level of freedom that's right for you, now. Whether that's gaining a few extra hours each week to spend with your friends and family, pursue a new interest, work on your business and life (rather than just being carried along in the thick of them), taking a sabbatical, upgrading your job or changing your career entirely, it's up to you how you apply the lessons.

Rest assured this course will make a positive, practical and significant difference in your life. How can I be so certain? I've been through it, many times, as have my readers, and come out the other side feeling stronger, clearer, freer, and more confident, focussed and determined to bring my creativity to life in the world.

You can feel the benefits too. 'Save The Day,' your day, by joining the cause today.

Reader reviews and feedback.

Absolute gold. A thoroughly enjoyable read that clarifies how we spend our work time and what each activity brings us. How to spot, evolve and harness our passions for fulfilling life to its full potential. How to relegate non-essential activities which are holding us back from this potential. Richard’s writing hits the spot and has made sense of my unconscious bad habits which waste time and hold me back.
A brilliant manifesto from Richard Conner on how to step from a stressed, negative hamster wheel of frustrating unfulfilled repetition into a new paradigm of creativity and flow. So many authors in this field promise a quick fix shot of positive thinking or ‘just add water’ instant recipe for happiness. Conner’s own experiences have taught him that our limiting patterns are deeply ingrained and require some serious focus and planning to unlock ourselves from them. I’ve taken on board a lot of points from the book including his concept of creating a ‘work vaccum’ on ‘skill’ and ‘step’ work as practical ways of ‘breaking busy’ and connecting with the true creative self. A great debut from a thinker with big potential,
Through The Seven Works, Richard Conner has put together a framework which I’m certain will relate to anyone who is in search of something different. As an architect living and working in the same city in which Richard has forged a formidable reputation through his previous works, it is great to understand that even those as driven and successful as he can yearn for the things we all do.
Absolutely blown away by how on point this book is, not just to my life but to everyone’s. We’re in a state of not fully knowing what we want, where to go, what to do and Richard’s Seven Works concept - and the associated ideas and plans - make complete sense of everything. I am now very clear on what is my Real Work and what is my Busy Work, and that creating free time for myself is not me being slack but creating much-needed space to process life and work. Brilliant.
The thinking person’s guide to human being as it’s meant to be..
When you read a guide to awakening from an architect, you can expect it will be an orderly process. However, what is revealed through this process are so many aha moments that you have to reread it again.
A precious guide to the path of self-discovery.
Richard manages to shed light on complex questions and ideas such as purpose in life, self-realization through meaningful work, mindfulness applied in day to day life. He doesn’t provide one size fit all answers but invites the reader to ask the right questions and tune into their inner wisdom to come up with answers leading to their personal truth.
Principles for architecting a life well lived, in real time.
Why are we doing what we are doing? How do we create and sustain a sense of fulfillment? Does happiness come from success, or does it come from taking it easy and enjoying the moment? This book is the author’s culmination of insights derived from a lifetime of exploring these questions, where he finds himself enjoying a life of simple enjoyment and self-derived purpose. Having read a ton of books in the genre I was struck at the unique approach Richard takes to distilling a system from his own experiences of finding a way to work with joy, systematically and organically.
About 20 years ago I embarked on a journey to fulfil what I still believe is my life’s vocation. My all-consuming passion to save the wild tiger has however, become boxed in by the rigours of “Busy Work”; lurching from one fabricated deadline to another, strangled by responsibilities I wasn’t looking for. The Seven Works teaches the value of ‘Letting Go’, to create the ‘Work Vacuum’ essential to getting back on track with the “Real Work”.
A manuscript for change. This is brilliant timing for this read to find me. Richard Conner has targeted his reader, to an audience that is awakening to purpose and change. This author is able to capture the reader and hold them in a place of understanding with his simple steps to finding that purpose. Thank you Richard, for your work, and bringing it to me in a way that resonates with my soul.
