This week kicks off the start of a new school year for our family and the official end of my “summer schedule”.
This summer I made it a point to slow down and enjoy time with family and friends. While I did not completely step away from my business, I was able to work a very relaxed schedule and give my children my uninterrupted time and attention fulfilling a promise I made when I transitioned to working for myself full-time two years ago.
Successful time management is a on-going action item that I am working on. I received a beautiful JORD Watch to review and share with my readership. It was very timely (see what I did there!) and fits in with these keys to successful time management that I’m sharing today as part of the Making A Happy Home Series we’re doing for the A-Z Challenge for April 2015.

Are you facing email overload? Email management is an area that seems to haunt me. I don’t even want to share the number of emails sitting in my multiple inboxes. Recently, I committed to becoming more organized with my emails as my business opportunities grew. Email is a major source of communication for me so missing an important deadline or an order could impact my reputation and my wallet. Definitely a no-no!
Email is a valuable tool that has revolutionized the way that we work.
Local marketing is important for any small business. Even if your business is mainly web based you may find that local marketing is still beneficial.
One of my goals this year for Divas With A Purpose is to focus more on my local community. I love to travel and have taken my blog and its message on the road to different cities, but this year I am focused more on my own home town.
