Working with Lori and More Time For You was perfect for me.  I had taken time management classes and read books, but nothing ever stuck.  I really need something developed just for me that worked with the I.T. devices I use at home and at work.  I could not keep up with my personal/work appointments or all of the email I was receiving.  I was too disorganized to be responsive to my clients and make my appointments on time.  With Lori’s help, I was able to prioritize.  She found the apps and software I needed to work with what I already had.  Now, I have one calendar, one task list –which she trained me to use effectively – and, I prioritize my emails and tasks.  I went from having thousands of emails in my in-box to less than twenty at any given time.  I really feel that Lori listened to my needs, quickly picked up on my personal challenges, and created a great solution just for me.  She was a pleasure to work with and I’ll be checking in with her if I fall back on bad habits.  For now – I’m feeling more in control of my schedule and life and doing my job better thanks to Lori!!
