A former professional organizer, I’m now a Web Designer and Care Plan Specialist. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

  1. I am the proud founder and “Head Mama” of the Smokin’ Hot Mama Club. Now, it’s not what you think! We are spurring a global movement changing the way women treat themselves and each other. I would love to share my personal goal setting system called “Sticky Goals”. It’s simple, so simple my small children use it and experience success in meeting their goals year after year. I invite you to take a look: http://smokinhotmamaclub.com/home/2011/1/1/sticky-goals.html

  2. Hi, I saw your blog mentioned at: The Blog Squad and thought I’d take a look. I have about 100 blogs myself but only a few I frequently update. The blog I “plugged” is where I help people attain their goals at: http://secretrulesforattainment.blogspot.com/ I also offer free “`10 Rules Poster” and “I Am a Magnet” poster along with a goals worksheet for 2011 for anyone who visits. I wish you the best in 2011. Ter Scott!

  3. What a fabulous collection of ideas and tips from these wonderful organizers! Thank you, Janet for putting this together. I know that a lot of people will benefit from these blog posts.

  4. Pamela and Ter, thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your tips and tools for making and achieving goals. Different strategies work for different people, so it’s always great to learn about new approaches.

    Linda, thank you for joining our little community! I look forward to reading more of your posts in the future.
