How can I help you?
Tagged as: Self Help
First I was a librarian, then a farmer’s wife and mother of six (including an intellectually handicapped foster son until he was 16). Following this I ended up a solo mother on government benefit… After a few long years I decided to fight my way out of the poverty trap (dabbling in tourism along the way) and became a very successful real estate agent.
Real estate taught me I had to learn better time management skills – or sink! To start with I was kicked out of meetings because I was late. PLUS: I burnt out numerous times from overwork and poor time habits. Frustrated with complaints about my lack of time management skills, a wise friend pointed me in the direction of a decent diary and a few key time management principles.
Since then, through much study, trial and error, my once great weakness has transmuted into a major strength and an international business… I reckon I’ve had the best possible background for running a time management business – I really do understand how it feels to be out of control! It’s a huge buzz these days helping others make the same changes to their life as they learn and practice the many simple and practical productivity habits that changed my life so dramatically.
And these days I need all the great time skills I’ve learnt over the years! The family has now expanded to include 17 grandchildren, and then there’s all the fun things and people I enjoy hanging out with – sailing, kayaking, cycling, dancing, music, learning guitar, reading, writing, films, travel and heaps of wonderful friends and extended family. (Oh, and business of course!).
