Just until you get “this project done”. 🙂 So many of my clients when we first start working together wear their “I’m so busy” almost like a badge of honor - "I worked 80 [...]

How to Conquer Project Management in 2023!

Project management can be tricky. It reminds me that one of my clients opened up Asana yesterday and had 38 tasks due, plus another 14 that were overdue.

I was shocked when I read the stats from a recent Gallup/Wells Fargo poll that more than half of business owners work at least 6 days a week.
