Getting Organized, Really Organized For Small Business

Getting Organized, Really Organized For Small BusinessWhen it comes to getting organized some of us may think, “Where do I begin?” You may feel that you, your business, or your employees could be more productive and work more efficiently if you could just develop some form of a streamlined “flow.”

If you are feeling overwhelmed, depending on your particular work environment, you may need to standardize operations to become more productive in an office environment. Or your situation may be more personal if you work from home and may be more about flow, re-arrangement and storage.

Our featured guest in this episode is Liz Franklin, Founder of Miz Liz On Biz and author of the book “How to Get Organized Without Resorting to Arson.” She will be sharing tips and insights to pull new cash, productivity and time out of your existing business and how to use increased productivity as a substitute for more time and money.

Here is a sampling from Liz’s show:

  • Organizing Styles There are three distinct organizing styles that exist based on the type of thinker that you are. They are: The Sparkle Brain, The Linear Brain and The Cross Dominate Brain. The sparkle brain is the creative and highly energetic thinker that tends to have trouble following through. The linear brain is generally more conservative and has trouble finishing on time. The cross dominate brain is entrepreneurial in spirit but tends to become easily distracted.
  • Access Styles Three distinct access styles exist based upon your organizing style. They are: Visual Access, Spatial Access and Chronological Access. A visual style needs a color based system. The spacial style needs a logistically based system and the chronological style needs a system based on numbers.

This episode features many valuable tips on understanding organization. Liz always says, “True organizing addresses changes at the core, not just on the surface.” Take Liz’s FREE test to find out what type of thinker you are!
