DIGITAL: Organizational Systems with Sarah A.O. Rosner

Oct. 20, 11:00 am12:00 pm



Start the season with clarity and drive – revamp the way you work with a handful of helpful organizational systems and intentional frameworks for getting it all done! Break down a maximalist workload into an easy workflow that motivates rather than overwhelms. You’ll leave the workshop with my personal to-do list system, strategies for databasing and troubleshooting, and ways to map and set intentions for your immediate future, next few months, and long term hustle.
