129 Ways to Manage your Time?

Wow – this has been such a blast to read! I have this discussion with just about every client….and it often comes up on my Ask Sarah calls……and constantly with friends and colleagues. Are we running out of time? Feels like it to all of us at some point I’m sure! As much as I rely on my schedule running like clockwork, we can all get distracted. I have taken a liking to my Google calendar as I can share it with my assistant who feels free (I begged her to order me around) to post things I need to do that I don’t even know about…..Guest blogs I am suppose to write, interviews she schedules, my twins doctor appointments etc… and this awesome reminder pops up and gives me a 10 minute warning!

I am sure you can find some fabulous time saving tips and tricks from my 129 Entreprenette Experts who so generously gave a few moments of their precious time to help you out.
