The biggest gift any parent can give their child, is to set them up for success. Are you setting your kids up for success? Your organizing styles are formed in childhood. Everything we do is built upon this foundation. Making organizing a habit, is a success skill that is learned. Learning organizing strategies as a kid, sets them up for success in life, so they feel confident about themselves and do well in school.

Feeling swamped, but still get so little done? Your time is your life. As a parent, are you making effective use of your time? If busyness takes over, you end up not getting the right things done. Deborah teaches you organizing strategies to schedule your time effectively so that you can go beyond the busyness of routine tasks that take-up your day.

Learn how to ask yourself questions that get you to:

  • set priorities so you have time for work, yourself and your kids.
  • get the right things done.
  • move forward with your lifetime goals. Write that novel or take that idea and turn it into a business, now!

  • get into the real-life habit of being organized.
  • maintain an organized lifestyle together.
  • manage their time and their space better.
