Laura Gilliam called and said she wanted to get her tax papers together. She had started her new MYCROCYCLE business in 2014, and wanted to double check that she had everything ready for the accountant. When I got to her house, she waved at the desk with a groan, and she might've said, “YUCK!” (We had last worked together March, 2014.) You see, while she was busy starting her business, being a single parent to two lively teens, managing two huge dogs, and enjoying her feisty boyfriend, Barry...her papers had gotten away from her! Huh, easy to see why. She’s got a lot going on!
Here’s the list of what we did in the office:
As we worked, I asked her questions and offered suggestions to boost her productivity even further (Remember, save 15 minutes a day and gain 11+ work days /year!)
Here are some of my productivity suggestions:
Then we moved on to what she called “the bokashi factory” in the basement. (I get to learn about so many cool things when I work with clients. If you’re into composting, but don’t have the space or weather conditions to make it happen outside, check this out...efficient, non-smelly and fun!)
Here’s what we did in the basement:
Set for success.
This organizing magic was accomplished in just one afternoon. Laura was happy, relieved and ready for anything :) as I pulled out of the driveway. A wonderfully satisfying afternoon for both of us!
If you could use some support to supercharge your productivity or just get you organized so you can find your keys, charger, money, tools and shoes in the morning...give me a call, I would LOVE to help!
