Time Management Workshop Tip in Honor of Small Business Week

Back in March, I had the opportunity to assist Goodwill Chattanooga with their spring donations drive. I’ve teamed up with Goodwill over the last five years because of the win-win synergy we create. My time management clients have a place to donate the excess from their work and personal spaces (and get a tax deduction from donating their clutter!); Goodwill then sells these excess items – the donations – in order to fund job training, emergency assistance, and other programs in the community.

In addition to giving three organizing and time management workshops in the metro area, Goodwill Industries in Chattanooga invited me to appear on their city’s ABC affiliate show, This N’ That to give live tips. They also had me record five daily organizing and time management tips which aired during their spring campaign.

Personal productivity is just as important as work productivity. Organizing your physical space is a component of productivity. Those of you who run your own business run a greater risk of blurring the lines between personal life and work life. So, in honor of Small Business Week, I’d like to share these organizing and time management workshop tips to help you get organized on the home front so you can improve your personal productivity on the business front.
