Back to Business 2022 – Session II. with Katrina Green (Virtual format)

Back to Business 2022 – Session I. with Katie McDonald (Virtual format)

Our Back to Business workshops are back again in 2022. 

First session is featuring Katie McDonald, founder and owner of b.nourished. 

Her topic is: “Self-care is not selfish. It is your duty!” available via Zoom.

We know how to get things done. It is what we do. Who we are. We are the ones everyone relies on and we rarely disappoint… even if it means abandoning ourselves. Day after day we uphold promises to others in service to our businesses, families, and communities yet we often think nothing of breaking our word to ourselves. The fantasy that today will be different- we will get enough sleep, rest, good nutrition, and exercise-endures. We think we have to choose self-care or productivity and we know which one will win every time. In our culture, a to-do list is valued above a to-be list. Maybe we can’t pull it off anymore.

We are tired, depleted, resentful and ready to challenge the long-held belief that self-care is selfish. Something has to change and we are poised to leverage a resource we have yet to fully employ-intentional and unapologetic self-care.

    • expose the ways in which we bury our legitimate needs in the busyness
    • gain clarity that self-neglect is selfish and an ill-advised success strategy
    • learn once and for all that there is no “have-it-all together” club

Katie’s Bio: Katie McDonald, CEO and founder of b.nourished, had to learn the hard way. Depleted and sick from chronic overwork and the disease of busy-ness, Katie had to apply her knowledge of self-care, alternative health, and nutrition to transform her own life. As a Self-care Strategist, Katie now devotes herself to coaching others to make the thoughtful, deliberate choices it takes to become the people they want and deserve to be. An authoritative speaker and recognized thought leader, Katie offers 6-month one-on-one concierge coaching and engaging presentations to corporations and organizations. The majority of b.nourished clients initially reach out because they feel off, overwhelmed, and exhausted in the hustle and bustle of daily obligations. The resulting stress often manifests in: excess weight; digestive issues; fatigue; asthma; anxiety and depression. Mostly there is an acknowledgment that they are living beneath their potential in health and well-being. They can no longer ‘get away with’ ignoring their bodies and minds. They are taking care of business and everyone else at the expense of taking care of themselves. They are ready to make lasting change. And they do. Featured in Huffington Post, Apartment Therapy, Dwell, Providence Journal and more, she has presented to Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute, Swarovski, CVS Health, Women President’s Organization as well as many more.

January 2021 Back to Business Session 4 – TIME and ACTION MASTERY!

Michael Charest | NAPO Houston

TIME and ACTION MASTERY!

Solopreneurs in general including professional organizers, are constantly bombarded with mixed messages about how to create a successful business. But few, if any, are provided with a SCHEDULE and ACTION BLUEPRINT of exactly how to spend their time to achieve their business goals. Professional organizers should wake up each day feeling inspired and confident knowing what exactly to do, when, why, and for how long to grow and sustain their business. When they do, the overwhelming peace of mind and confidence permeates their business and life.

Learning objectives:
1. NINE core activities you should be spending your time on weekly.
2. The “Optimal Time Allotment” for each on a daily and weekly basis.
3. How to schedule them into your calendar SO THAT YOU DO THEM!
4. Bonus: What not to be doing and a clever “ROI” for releasing them!

Outline:

  • “Stephen Covey” Time Management Overview (Demonstration or Video)
  • Organizer Big 9 Time Blocks (Callout participation)
  • Big 9 Time Allocation
  • Big 9 Time Blocking (Dyad exercise)
  • Weekly Calendar Template (Self-creation)
  • Action-Measure-Adjust
  • Delegation ROI
  • Time and Action Principles (Group review)

Transparent Power: Improve Client Outcomes through Direct Communication

Enhance your clients’ outcomes, improve sales, and ease “difficult” conversations with one powerful tool: transparency. Skills transfer and progress measurement become easier and obvious with processes so clear that clients can fully partner with you. Potential hazards evaporate with your candor at key junctures, including initial call, discussion (and enforcement) of policies and fees, follow-up, expansion requests, etc. This session provides specific language, tools, and strategies to take your practice to a clearly higher level.

She helps busy professionals regain control of their work and lives through coaching individuals and groups, leading workshops and webinars, and her book, The Productivity Chain: The Holistic Way to Spend Your Time on What Matters.

She recently earned a Master’s degree in Communication from Old Dominion University, with a focus on being listened to with empathy. Casey’s favorite productivity strategy is to walk in the woods and the mountains. It produces peace.
