Manage your time the SMART way with Kate Christie (ep 64)

The most common challenge faced by our listeners is how to manage time. Most of us feel that there is not enough time to do all the things we want to do or otherwise feel guilty about how we spend our time. Today we’re joined by time management expert, Kate Christie, who is here to help us reorganise our time to get back some of those lost hours.  

Kate is the founder & CEO of Time Stylers an international speaker and best-selling author. She empowers high performing individuals and teams with the mindset, skills and strategies to find and harness hours of lost time. Kate has developed a 5-step process to help busy people find hours of lost time and she shares a summary of this process with us today.
