Hello, I’m Martin Grunburg.
Entrepreneur, author, speaker and coach.
I’m also the designer/inventor of The Habit Factor® mobile app (iOS and Android) and author of the corresponding, bestselling book sharing the same name.
First, I want to thank you for your visit!
I’m honored you’ve found your way here and fairly certain it isn’t by mistake. Chances are you’re either searching for a better way to develop habits and achieve your goals or, perhaps, you’re the competition
Either way, it’s alright by me. What do they say about imitation anyway?
By now, you’ve probably noticed the proliferation of habit tracking apps/websites and today, The Habit Factor® may be the most imitated of all the Productivity apps. For good reason, The Habit Factor® has revolutionized goal achievement (via habit development) flipping it on its head to create the fastest and easiest way to help people achieve their goals.
Thanks once again!
PR stuff follows…

A few testimonials post presentation:
“Your presentation was powerful and well received by the group. In reading your book I realized the potential of your process to improve one’s professional and personal life. In the business world we try to engrain positive behaviors (habits) and eliminate non-productive behaviors not only with our employees but with our customers. That said, your book will become part of my team’s training process to capture incremental business. Thought you would like the feedback.” ~Tim Hawboldt Regional Manager, Chrysler SBS (sent via email over a month after the presentation)
“The presentation was clear, educational and most importantly inspirational. Martin has a very effective way of educating you about habits while motivating you to take action. His simple process is very effective and has already helped me to start changing. Even my kids are using the process now Thank you Martin.”
~Alex Shahabe CEO, PC Housing
“The Habit Factor offers life changing ideas and a system to implement. Incredibly valuable.” ~Jim Matteo, CEO BirdRock Systems
“The Habit Factor should be incorporated into sales management!” ~G. Colbert
“The Habit Factor provides a meaningful and unique perspective to achieving goals you may currently have or have yet to realize. I’m looking forward to applying The Habit Factor’s methodology both professionally and in other areas of life. Thank you.” ~H. Ricaurte
“The idea that changing your smaller behavior and habits on a regular basis will lead to achieving monumental goals was a concept that seemed farfetched at first, but the more you listened to the presentation the more it made complete sense.” ~A Schumacher
“Martin is just oozing with sensational past experiences that give the Habit Factor an interesting type of depth and structure. I have tried many apps with similar ambitions, to this day I’m using only one, The Habit Factor.” ~D. Diakov

There is nobody better to introduce, educate and inspire your organization to live by the profound principles of The Habit Factor® than the creator of the world’s first, true goals and habits app (one that understand the difference between goals and habits) and the first productivity app associated with a best-selling book.
Martin offers a very real personal account of both awakening and transformation tied to habit development. (Not a story about some cookie habit). From an overworked, unfit entrepreneur to 3x full, Ironman distance competitor and 4x Catalina Classic, (32 Mile Open Ocean paddleboard event) participant.
The key take-away, however, had little to do with these athletic events (after all, there are thousands of Ironman athletes and hundreds of Elite paddleboarders worldwide) what makes Martin’s story unique, is how he was able to distill and then share those insights first with a group of entrepreneurs who then experienced similar results and then urged him to create an app to share the process and ideas with the world!
Ultimately, The Habit Factor® app has now become the world’s best-selling productivity dynamic duo (book & app) (iOS and Android) touching tens of thousands of lives around the world.
Finally, here is one of the latest book reviews that almost reads fake because it says “actually” so many times. ; ) Enjoy!
