Harriet Cohen of Training Solutions to give work-from-home tips at March 18 meeting

Harriet Cohen of Training Solutions to give work-from-home tips at March 18 meeting

Some small business owners, freelancers, and entrepreneurs are old pros at working from home, but the rest of us had to quickly adjust to this new normal last year. We cooked up marketing plans at the kitchen table or strew spreadsheets on the bedsheets, doing our best to keep business humming while dealing with our kids and our partners also being home all day long. Maybe it got better and you now run a productive home office and a happy household. Or maybe that chaos of last March became routine.

Harriet Cohen has made a career of helping business people better themselves and their companies, from developing business plans and implementing management tools to creating onboarding programs and improving employee retention. Her business, Training Solutions, is all about enhancing productivity. That’s why we’re so excited to have her speak on Thursday about the shared work-from-home experience, and how we can make it more palatable. 

Harriet will share tips for being more productive, like setting boundaries with your family and your clients (so you’re not working during family time and doing family tasks during work time). She also has a wealth of ideas for improving your productivity during those work hours, like implementing new tools and time management structures, delegating tasks, and making sure you take a refreshing break every once in a while.

She will also discuss the importance of a dedicated work space, a piece of real estate that is convenient and all yours. You don’t have time to go from room to room printing documents, scrounging for paperclips, and locating stamps and envelopes. Harriet will talk about what that workspace might look like and how to make it happen in your home.

Many of us are exhausted after working from home all year, but with Harriet’s help, we can learn how to reduce procrastination, increase motivation, and most importantly, maintain sanity. Join us at 10am PST on Thursday, March 18 over Zoom for Harriet’s presentation. Click here to join the meeting.

The March 18 meeting sponsor is Frank Bettag of Business Computer Associates LLC.

Looking ahead to those April showers and May flowers, one year into pandemic

Looking ahead to those April showers and May flowers, one year into pandemic

March of 2020 began over 365 days ago, and some of us feel like it never really ended. As we move into a new calendar month, though, it's a good time to try to shake off that perpetual-winter feeling and look forward to what April has to offer.

Some messages from our group...

What makes the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce a good chamber to be part of?

It keeps local businesses tied to the community.  It no longer feels like a "me against the world" business model.
