Megan Sumrell – Time and Productivity Techniques that Work for Women
Listen to the Episode
In this episode
In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with Time Management and Productivity Coach, Megan Sumrell, about her business journey and how she helps women to keep their life in balance.
Before starting out on her own, Megan worked with companies to help them develop systems and processes to help them become more efficient, saving time and money in the process. When she became a Mum, Megan started to apply these principles to her own life – only to find that her office time-management principles had little to do with organising yourself around a young family. After a realisation that things had to change, Megan decided to take a step back and ‘restructure’ her own family organisation to find a better way to live in balance.
Listen to this episode to discover how Megan has turned her new processes into her full-time passion how you can become more productive and enjoy greater balance at home and at work.
When it comes to getting organised, 'How can I get it all done?' Is not the question to ask. Instead ask, 'What can I let go of to give myself the capacity to focus on what's most important to me?'. - Megan Sumrell Click To Tweet
