Do you do ALL your thinking in the shower?

It's common to hear business owners say, “I do my best thinking in the shower.” In fact, one of my clients actually has a waterproof notepad that he uses in the shower to jot down ideas. I know I periodically get some great ideas for posts while in the shower. (Ironically, this is not one of them!) The question is - why?! Why do [...]

The Importance of the 6 Levels of Delegation for Your Business

In my last post, I shared a strategy to reduce the number of questions you receive after you delegate: delegate the OUTCOME instead of the TASK.

Do you know the book Clockwork by Mike Michalowicz? I'm obsessed with it . . . so obsessed that I have sent the book to clients, who have then purchased extra copies and sent them to some of their clients! In fact, I even started the Impact Time Collective Mastermind Program based on the concepts in this book! One of the concepts that Mike stresses in Clockwork is [...]

The Secret to Creating Order from Chaos

Recently a member of a Facebook group for Virtual Assistants (I'm the Time Management expert for the group) asked this question: "Do you find that it's best to have a set schedule for every day of the week, or do your days differ because that is life?" My answer was . . . drum roll please . . . it depends! 😊 Here’s what [...]

How to Be Productive Even When You Are Sick

On a recent flight to a conference in Scottsdale, I noticed the many sneezes and sniffles going on around me. There's nothing like sharing air in a confined space with a crowd of sick people! I realized that at this time of year many of my clients face the challenge of trying to figure out how to handle work when they are feeling crummy. You know [...]

Now, I’ll admit, I DO surround myself with high achieving, passionate business owners. They do have a lot on their plate. They are juggling multiple roles.
