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

Michael Charest | NAPO Houston


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!
