I understand that sometimes the very things that make you successful,
(creativity...big ideas...embracing opportunity) can make being
organized and productive a challenge. My work focuses on helping you achieve your goals and improve your quality of life. Melding my expertise and experience in productivity, leadership and
organizing I deliver impactful and expedient results.
I believe that every person has unique gifts that are
meant to be shared with the world. I understand that sometimes the very things
that drive success, can also make being organized
and productive a challenge. It is my
mission to help my clients remove their productivity and organizational obstacles so they can achieve their goals and live a better life.
Utilizing both my Coaching expertise and my Productivity/Organizing skills,
I follow a 3 step process to help my clients to create the life they want to lead:
Envision Possibilities - we begin by
looking at goals and values, then we identify what it is you want that you don't
Focus and Prioritize - next we
identify what you have to do (and not do) to bring your vision to reality. Often this means prioritizing what's most
important, and letting go of opportunities that don't support your goals.
Organize to Thrive - then we get
into the nuts and bolts of learning the skills you'll need to bring enough
order to your life to reach your goals. With an organizational focus you will learn and practice skills and ways of
thinking that will make it easier for you to find your success.
