The method can be practiced by professionals in a wide variety of helping fields and works across space, time, projects and teams, in residential and business settings, for people at every age and stage of their life.

Organizing your Clients from the Inside Out will teach you the skills you need to work across with a range of clients in residential and business settings.

Julie’s method is the best I’ve seen for getting from the amorphous goals to the daily to do’s on a calendar.

BECOMING A TIME MANAGEMENT COACH

Time is quickly becoming recognized as people’s most valuable resource in achieving their goals and in creating a rewarding life.  

Julie has a way of organizing and articulating information that makes it easy to remember and therefore put into use. I loved the mix of visual, concrete tools (the Time Maps, for example) and quick take-aways (such as “the 4 D’s” for preventing overwhelm in a schedule) and so do my clients.
