I wasn’t born organized…

<gasp>

I became organized through years of self-education and trial-and-error early in my career.

In 2007, it occurred to me that other businesspeople shouldn’t have to struggle with getting organized like I did, so I quit my corporate job and hung out my shingle as a productivity coachspeaker, and writer. Since then, I have helped thousands of businesspeople nationwide maximize their effectiveness, balance their priorities, and generate outstanding results.

My clients experience the following results:

  • Improved time and task management practices that increase productivity while often reducing overall hours worked
  • Enhanced email management practices that reduce the likelihood of miscommunication and missed communication
  • Better management of people, processes, and projects 

I use tactical and practical productivity-improving strategies that help clients get things done, reduce stress, and improve work/life balance.
