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 have 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.
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.
I also 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.
Building, growing and scaling a business is HARD WORK and you will learn skills you never thought possible.
By prioritizing the skills of time management, productivity and implementation you can make building and growing your business easier, with less overwhelm, less stress and less self-doubt.
Don't make the mistake of jumping into expensive business courses and coaching until you have learned these skills.
Join the challenge and create your productivity and implementation system that will have you getting more done, in less time.
You'll be provided with a framework to lean on when your business starts to grow.
Whether you work alone or have a team, resolving your productivity and implementation problems is single most important thing you can do for your business.
Once you learn how to implement effectively and sustainably, the SKY is the limit!
“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.”
"... 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."

“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.”~ Amy
