Mali List Mayer
I am a soloprenuer, divorced, single mom, home-owner with a dog. Quite a mouthful! As a kid, I was organized, strong willed (a.k.a. stubborn), creative and independent. My mother supposedly said, “When we brought our daughter home [after her birth], she organized the nursery making it quicker to change her diaper.” To Organization, I added time management. On a summer program after 10th grade, we were told to read How to Study in College by Walter Pauk. I soaked up every word in the book and have since then used the Cornell Method to take notes and review all materials before and after meetings (then classes). Because of this book, I became the go-to person for class notes, assignments and any other material my fellow classmates didn’t have (Hooky, anyone?) or had lost. I was voted “most organized” by my classmates in our 12th grade yearbook. I was also voted most likely to have a cooking show on PBS. From this along with receiving a BA in Classical Civilizations (essentially Greco-Roman archaeology) and working in nonprofit fundraising, producing auction catalogs and as a graphic designer, I know that productivity and time management are important to my business as well as my personal time. Every methodology I teach my clients, I use myself to keep afloat in my life.
Why is working with me different than working with other time management coaches?
Simple. I design a plan for you and your needs. The methodologies I teach are specific to your issues. I have read books on subjects ranging from time management to overcoming procrastination, from reaching your goals to writing effective to-do lists and everything in between. The benefit, besides the fact that you don’t have to read the books, is that I take all the methodologies I have learned and use them in a customized plan for you. I become your partner in your quest to be more productive on a daily basis. Reading a book is good, but having a partner to help you follow through is better. Scientific studies have proven that more people succeed in reaching their goals when they have an accountability partner (there’s that word again) over a reward or merit for their achievement. I provide accountability as you begin your productivity journey and help you design your own accountability plan to help you stay on track once we are done working together.
