“I recently took part in a class with Cheryl to learn how to apply Scrum techniques to my blogging and coaching business. I learned some very great techniques to add to my goals toolkit. In conjunction with Cheryl’s program, I am learning how to train my brain to power hour and increase my efficiency in all areas of my life. If you are at all interested in decreasing the hours that you put into work each week, I would highly recommend getting plugged in with Cheryl.” ~Pam Mencimer
"... it only took a few lessons into the challenge I participated in to open my eyes. I really believe what I learned just in a short time of applying her methods will change the way I blog and plan. It will probably even impact how I manage my home (so many applications for the Scrum method!) I’d never heard of Scrum before working with her and taking the Scrum Challenge. But now that I have, I can’t imagine going back." ~Andrea Brame
You have an idea, a passion even, and you want to turn it into a profitable business. Maybe you’re a professional, or a speaker, or an author, or a coach. You want to build a website, write a book, sell a course or a coaching program.
But as soon as you started you became overwhelmed immediately. You try to spend time every day to work on your new venture but something always seems to interfere and derail your efforts. Plus, the learning curve of building an online business is so enormous that you find yourself stuck often and down a rabbit hole even more. And worse yet, you struggle to get your family to take your new venture seriously.
Even more frustrating, you see other entrepreneurs on your social media feed making it look easy and even bragging about how much money they make and how much freedom they have.
So what gives?
You just haven't honed the skills to manage your time as a work-from-home entrepreneur. It has nothing to do with your intelligence, your abilities or your will power.
The actual issue is that you simply haven't learned what these other gurus have learned about managing their work and finding your rhythm.
But the good news is that I am going to show you how to manage your work effectively without working long hours or sacrificing family time. In just 5 days.
That's right! In just 5 days you will know how the gurus seem to do it all and how you can too.
The Truth is: Managing your online business is a lot easier when you have a framework to depend on.
Me, at my old office
When I started my business I was working a 9-5 as a development and implementation manager in an IT shop. My work was not passive in any way shape or form. I was busy all day.
But I had a dream to own my own business so I could be in charge of my own destiny. So I launched my business working just 2 hours per day.
I quickly became frustrated, overwhelmed and stuck.
As an IT Professional, I was in charge of small development teams of 12 people or less and with the volume of work we had, I had to help my staff prioritize their work and manage their time so they could get more done in less time, with less stress.
Plus, I had to manage my desk which included attending and chairing multiple meetings each day, design sessions, trouble shooting sessions, and still make time for doing my actual work at my desk. I thought about how I actually managed all this.
That is when the lightbulb went off. I realized that what I applied in the office at my 9-5, was not translating to my business. As a certified project manager, Scrum certified professional and 20+ years in the IT industry, I had the education and experience to lead teams through the entire implementation process. And when I applied all this to my business, that's when everything changed for me.
I suddenly was getting more done, in less time. I felt accomplished and made progress on my projects faster. I had less stress and could step away from my desk with confidence, knowing that I could get back on track the next day with ease.
That is when I realized that I needed to teach this to everyone!
And so I came up with a framework for time management and productivity and launched my coaching business so that I could teach my clients how to make the most of the time spent on their businesses, even if it was just a few hours per week.

“Do you ever feel guilty about sacrificing family time to work on your business? I struggled with this problem in my first year of trying to build my brand new blog. As a wife, homeschool mother to 5 children, farmer, and new entrepreneur I was stretched very thin. My blog was floundering and my family time was suffering. Cheryl taught me how to develop time blocks to make my time work for me rather than always feeling guilty about sacrificing family time. The scrum method that Cheryl teaches has helped me develop repeatable processes that have doubled productivity in my business. I feel like I am in control of my time rather than always scrambling to get things done. Cheryl starts with big picture thinking and then breaks it down to practical steps to get things done! Not only is Cheryl knowledgeable, but she is also personable and always willing to answer questions and encourage her students. I am so thankful I have found her and how she has adapted the scrum method to blogging. It has changed my productivity and my business.”
