This month’s topic: Time is money! 

How to avoid being overwhelmed in your business by practicing good time management strategies. 

Do you ever feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day? That your true priorities often take a backseat to the problems that other people put on your plate throughout the day?

This is fairly common, especially in our fast-paced, 24/7-connected world.  But the good news is that it can be under your control.

During this session, Nathalie will share her top time management tips so that you wake up energised and focused on the coming day… and you lay your head down each night, calm and satisfied with what you were able to accomplish.

Presented by: Nathalie Ricaud

Nathalie is a professional organiser and the founder of Get Organised & Beyond.  She works with women who feel overwhelmed by all the stuff they’ve accumulated in their homes or by all the activities they’re trying to fit into their schedule.  She helps them let go of the unneeded and unloved in their homes and schedules and establish systems so they feel relieved from stress and regain control over their lives.
