Do you find yourself saying I need to get more organized A LOT? Do you have late fees, overdrawn checks, missed appointments, missed opportunities, or you don't have people over because you are embarrassed about parts of your house? Or maybe you are having a big get together in the future and want to tackle your home's problem areas once and for all? I organize any room in the house - basements, garages, closets, kitchens, laundry areas, home office, and storage rooms.
Time and Project Management and Paperwork Processing
Everyone can often feel overwhelmed by their schedules and the many things we need and want to do. Control over time begins with getting your schedule, sticky notes, and reminders organized into one 'go-to' place. We will look at how you work and your preferences and help you determine how to prioritize your daily activities. Whether your goal is to not forget an appointment again or to try and find time for a special activity, let PRO help you get more efficient in organizing your daily schedule.
I speak at meetings of any size: corporate staff meetings, business groups, stay at home mom groups, informal groups, professional groups. I will prepare a talk on any organizing topic your group is interested in. Some possible topics include holiday planning and storage tips, organizing paperwork, time management, or understanding and overcoming procrastination.
2 hour consultation
This is for the more 'do it yourself' client. You may have a problem area or two and want a professional's advice on what to do. I review the areas that you would like help with and then I provide a plan that includes product suggestions. You can then work on the project on your own, or have me in periodically to help.
With over 20 years of corporate experience, I set up systems for employees to manage email, paper and project files, and computer files. The benefit of this is nothing slips through the cracks and they are able to narrow their focus to the highest priority tasks. I also can speak at any meeting on time management or workplace paperwork processing, or any other organizing or productivity topic that would be of interest to your office.

No matter how great the system of processing paperwork is set up, you still have to process paperwork on a regular basis! If you find that this is a task you dread, I offer a program where I do this for you once we get your system up and running. It includes filing, creating your weekly action item lists, and preparing bills for payment. This cuts back on late fees and overdraft charges and it creates your weekly to do list. You will be able to focus on high priority items or creative work rather than being overwhelmed with mundane and boring tasks.
