Vision for Success

Points of You® tools were designed to be used by professionals, organizations and individuals.

In a powerful and unique way, they invite us to get free of thought patterns and obvious solutions as well as finding ourselves, opening to new possibilities of change, expansion and growth.
These games are based on phototherapy and work with cards with photos, words and powerful questions. It is this connection that allows us to look at the subjects and procedures that are important in our life (Personal and Professional) from other points of view and so, to be able to change our behavior patterns.

In our interactive presentation, we will challenge participants to go back to their success moments in the past, explore what is preventing them from achieving Success in the present and inspire them to visualize their best successful self in the future.

It will be a powerful and fun journey that will help the participants to Focus on themselves, bringing a more Clear Vision for their Success in the Future.

JUNE CARTER

Time Management for Home Stagers

Focus not frenzy:

Improve efficiency, free up time and create the environment that will support you. Managing busy lives is a challenge for everyone. Focus Not Frenzy: Time Management for Home Staging Professionals, featuring the Time Management Process is developed by June Carter, a Home Stager for Home Stagers. It is a thought process that will co-exist with the training of actual staging while holistically strengthening the Home Stager’s business and personal life.

One aspect of a Home Stager’s training is finding the path to make it all manageable and still be fun. The Time Management Process aligns priorities by defining the important and the urgent. We frequently fall into the trap of believing that all urgent activities are also important. We are inclined to focus on what is pressing at the moment. The goal is to be motivated when there isn’t a deadline looming. This change is a creative thought process that will grow stronger with use over time.

Through exercises using the course handouts, the attendees will personally create their own time management experience. Real-life examples of Home Staging and hands-on experience make the information in this presentation easy to use and applicable on an ongoing daily basis for Home Stagers

Session Learning Objectives:

After attending this session, participants should be able to

• List five core business and personal values
• Identify the important vs the urgent
• Balance the needs of a busy business and personal life
