  • Productivity Tip

Take time to take care of yourself physically, spiritually, mentally.

Katie gets up at 5:30AM and exercises, then eats a very heathy breakfast.  Some days she even gets up at 4:30AM to get some extra work done.

This allows her to clear her mind and be present whether she is with her kids or in a meeting.
