    Are you running your office or is it running you?

     

    Like most busy professionals, there's a very good chance your office administration suffers from your inability to find the time to focus and improve on how you do things.  Let's face it -- you're too busy getting everything done!

    Sign up for the Organize Your Office MasterClass and learn simple ways to streamline, save time, and get the work done.   

    Supercharge your productivity. Permanently.

    VBA MEMBERS

    Grab your seat now and let Andrea give you the tools, processes and resources you need to get your office organized, email under control and the work of your firm done as efficient as possible.

    Organize Your Office is perfect for those:

    • who constantly wastes time searching for things: contact details, dates, files and documents

    • overwhelmed by the options to upgrade and which products to use

    • who don't have the time or temperament to personally invest in testing or implementing change

    • simply frustrated knowing something has to be done, but no idea where to start or what to use

    Organize Your Office was designed to get busy attorneys quickly up to speed with proven techniques and practical recommendations Get your office updated, automated, streamlined and systematized so the administration and routine business functions are performed as efficiently as possible.

    Organize Your Office instructor, Andrea Cannavina, has been helping legal professionals since 2001. A sample of comments by those who have relied on Andrea's advice can be found here and one of Andrea's favorite quotes is from curmudgeon of a lawyer, Scott Greenfield over at Simple Justice:

    5 Things you can expect by the end of the class:       

    1. You will have systems in place to control the massive amount of information that comes at you each day
    2. You will have in place the best equipment and tech available for how you like to process work
    3. You will have upgraded/streamlined/automated/ delegated any and all items that pile up/get left undone/ are not your highest value or preferred tasks
    4. You will be less stressed with a clear picture of your calendar and what you need to do in the days ahead
    5. You will feel more in control - knowing why things are getting done a certain way

    You CAN do this!

    How is the Class structured?

    This is really simple. The Organize Your Office MasterClass is a 3 month commitment.   Classes are held every other Tuesday at 5pm Eastern/2pm Pacific. First class is October 10 and the last class is December 19. Participation is limited to 30.

    Classes are held via Zoom - where you connect by clicking on a link or by dialing a phone number.

    You will want to attend each class live - as Andrea covers a specific something and how it will improve your office. However, each class is also recorded, so if you can't make it, you can always review the recording to get  up to speed.

    YOUR COMMITMENT is limited

    Keep in mind, Organize Your Office is not about creating a long-term dependency.

    Every 2 weeks, for 3 months, you show up, listen, ask questions and commit to taking action before the next class.  

    If you stick with it -- making the incremental changes suggested -- the impact on how much better/faster/cheaper things get done in the office helps fuel the next improvement to your office.

    In less than 3 months, how you work will dramatically improve, giving you more time to:

    • pursue personal goals - like exercise or taking a vacation
    • work with more clients and grow your book of business
    • network and connect with others in the community
    • do absolutely nothing (if that's what you want to be doing)

    What if you get stuck?

    Remember, you are never alone -- Andrea is with you each step of the way!  You can always email or call. 

    Also, when you sign up, you get invited to a private page, where just you and Andrea get to collaborate and communicate outside of each class.

    Program Fee and Commitment

    The most important thing for you to ask yourself right now is: "Is this program right for me? Will I receive the support I need to get my office - it's people, process and tech organized?"

    If your answer is Yes, then I invite you to join.

    The fee for the next Organize Your Office MasterClass program is $500.  If you happen to be a member of the Virtual Bar Association, you receive a 20% discount, dropping the fee to only $400.

    If you would like to be in the next program, starting Tuesday, October 10 and get everything you need in place to update your office so you hit 2018 running... sign up today  as Andrea's classes fill quickly!

    ***

    BONUS: Everyone who signs up gets Andrea's simple but powerful step-by-step system to organize their inbox and keep track of the tasks, people and projects competing for your time. You'll also capture all those good ideas, and track the most important actions you have on a daily basis so you not only get the right things done - you get paid for your time!
