Is your art office a fright?

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Drowning in clutter?

Losing time to poor habits?

Don't know where to begin to start office files and databases?

I know all about these traps. I deal with them every day and can teach you what I have learned that allows me to run a focused, successful business.

Time to get yourself in order!

In this class, you will:

  • Conquer piles
  • Make proper files so you can find stuff!
  • Create e-files--again, so you can find stuff!
  • Become more productive by working your task list
  • Work toward going (mostly) paperless--saving some trees
  • Use your calendar more efficiently
  • Process mail and email so that it doesn't clog up your systems

Log onto your computer from the comfort of your home, office, local coffee shop, or interplanetary traveling craft.
Your time zone is irrelevant. Time of day matters not.

There are no scheduled meeting times.
Everything is posted on the private class blog.
You are welcome to participate on the blog or to travel in solitude.

Class lessons will be posted on weekdays only during the class session dates. You will receive daily (weekday) reminders to pick up your lesson.

Class lessons include PDF downloads, audio files (which are for auditory learners—all audio files will also be available as PDF files), and a little video.

You just need a computer and space to devote to your dreams.

You will get out of the class as much as you put into it.
I suggest setting aside time in the morning to do the class lessons.
Some days you may just read and other days you may have homework or journaling.
As with most classes, some lessons will speak to you more than other lessons.
You decide whether you spend 15 minutes or two hours on each lesson.
The blog will remain for two weeks following the class.


Bonus! All class participants will have access to
an amazing teleseminar I held with my
personal productivity consultant, Leslie Shreve.

I've learned more from this class than I could have hoped for or imagined! Having just finished printing my own Christmas cards and meeting deadlines for 3 painting residencies, I'm astonished at what I've achieved! It's been years since I've mailed a Christmas card BEFORE Christmas, much less one featuring one of my paintings on it. Entering into the class, I didn't have a specific office. My home was a sea of piles. . . .

I do something daily now, and little by little, staying organized is becoming a way of life.
Putting things in the right place the first time, rather than moving endless piles around, has been tremendously helpful. I feel terrific when I can find what I'm looking for and can sit down and plan the next project. Our group was fantastically supportive group of each other . . . It was worth every penny. —Joan DaGradi, New Orleans, LA

The basement studio is fully organized and functioning. A place for everything and everything in it's place . . . I'm now in the process of applying to residency programs for next year. So, Girl, your class lit the fire under me and got me going. Thank you.—Louise Farrell, Brookline, MA
