Who is AMPLL for?
AMPLL is designed for busy professionals in self-directed roles who want to improve and balance their working style. The remote work trend has increased the stress from juggling competing responsibilities and trying to be "always on." We are here for people that feel that stress and want to do something about it.
How will AMPLL make money?
AMPLL is free for individuals to use right now. We are brand new though and, as such, mostly trying to validate we can help solve the enormous pain points associated with work/life integration and remote work.
Someday we may have a Pro consumer version of the app. Our main monetization plan though is to help spread the awareness of diverse working styles and ways to optimize energy across teams to help entire companies of people be at their best. When we have those features, we will ask companies to pay for them.
We will never make money on selling or sharing your personal data. The individual worker is the HERO of our story.
Can my boss use this app to see my activity?
No. We are grossed out by corporate spyware. People should work at places that trust them to do a good job.

Here's our take.
This new Era of work deserves a new way of working...
1. People are working more and more.
In our always-on world, good health demands wellness and balance across our whole life, including at work. Anyone can benefit from a way to measure work energy and drains using a common language that is safe to share with people.
The great exhaustion
Nearly half of all employees report symptoms of burnout, but the real number is surely higher since the most burned-out people have likely left the workplace already.
2. Awareness of how we each work at our best is far too low.
We may not even realize when our ideal working style conflicts with normal daily realities. These minor, but frequent, energy drains add up to take a big toll on your health and sap your ability to perform at your best.
As hard as it is to be aware of your own ideal work style, it's even harder to recognize what is best for other people. Small innocent choices about collaboration like scheduling, communication modes, or timing can create big drains for your teammates. Given enough of these drains over time, they can lead to substantial dissatisfaction, poison relationships, and a loss of team effectiveness. Providing just a little more intentional awareness can easily turn our routine team interactions into gains.

Instead of trying to fit into other people’s molds, lean into how you naturally work your best. Find your natural workflow and let it be yours. If your brain is checked out during a time you should be working, then maybe it is telling you to take a rest.
3. It's OK to take care of ourselves, even especially at work.
In fact, staying energized in a sustainable way is essential for both good health and being at our most productive. Too many people push along day-after-day fighting to continue unsustainable work habits. Too often the result leads to burnout and mental health stress. The long term effects of this kind of work stress can even be fatal. Luckily, the solution is simple. To have a healthy work life, you just need to get aware about what represents the best work style for you, set some boundaries, and support one another to stay energized.
You're not the only one who's had enough: 95 percent of workers are considering quitting, report says
The top culprit, pollsters found, was burnout. Cited by 32 percent of respondents, it was the most common reason people gave for wanting to throw in the towel on their current job.
4. Being "seen" benefits us all.
People inherently want to be supported and want to support each other. By introducing a common perspective focused on energy, we can change the narrative from celebrating the "hero" who burns both ends of the candlestick (often producing a lot of mediocre work) to encouraging people to take care of themselves so they can produce great work in a sustainable and reliable way over the longterm.
