Ready, Aim, Influence!

I had the pleasure of speaking to Barb who offered me a session of life coaching. We discussed my issues with time management due to the fact that I work out of my home as a small business owner. Barb asked me lots of questions about my life and how I can manage my time more efficiently. She helped me make a plan to organize my time, accomplish goals, and still have time for the tasks that I look forward to each day. I have continued the system I developed with her help and it has organized my days and weeks for the last month.
