Are You Leveraging Yourself Effectively?

There is only one of me and only 24 hours in the day.  (And of those hours, I only really like to be awake for about 15!).  So I’ve been noodling on a problem faced by many small business owners, which is how to make the most effective use of my time.  It’s important to me to:

~ Work with people where I can make a difference.
~ Offer clients a range of options to suit their circumstances, needs and location.
~ Enable more people to learn about organizing, even if we don’t work one-on-one together.

I know from client feedback what a difference the organizing process can make to someone’s life and the feeling of relief it brings! 
As a result, I’m now offering:

  • Three different hands-on organizing packages, so clients can get to know me or work with me in-depth.
  • Workshops and seminars ranging from 30 minutes to 4 hours.  If you’re in the San Mateo area and would like to learn about de-cluttering on April 5, I’d love to see you: register here.  More classes are in development for May and beyond.
  • Remote, telephone-based organizing coaching, so that even distant family cannot escape my offerings!
  • My solo service, where I act as the catalyst in getting you started and defining the steps you then need to accomplish on your own.
  • Monthly tips by email, announcements and links via Facebook and Twitter, and of course, ongoing blog posts.

These options allow me to make great use of my time and help more people get on the path to becoming more  organized.

    These sound like really good ideas and if I was in the SF area I would definitely sign up for one of your decluttering workshops! Your business seems to be really getting off the ground… congratulations – so pleased for you! X

  2. I like the idea of “leveraging.” I think that’s a great way to put it. I have no idea if I’m actually doing a very good job at it, but I know that I’m definitely not getting as much sleep as you are! :-)

    I admire that you’ve found so many different ways to offer people your expertise. For me, my life is spread out over so many different areas (work is social issues marketing/advertising, second work is fitness, blog is domestic matters), that there isn’t the same kind of natural synergy. As I’m thinking through how to reprioritize things and make sure I’m getting what I want to get out of, I love the idea of thinking about it in terms of leverage, both to share things with others, and to make sure I’m getting back what I want.

    Can I make a small suggestion? That you put your name on your blog more prominently? I’ve known you for ages as Struggler but then hesitated to call you ‘English’ and I was surprised at how long it took me to find Pauline. Just an idea. Might make you seem more … accessible.

    Happy Monday!
