23 - Do You Know Where the Time Goes? (Coaching with Marlo Laney)

If you don’t know where you’ve come from...it's hard to know where you're going.

You’re in store for a UNIQUE coaching experience this episode around the area of tracking personal time and MEASURING performance!

What better way to shed some light on this month’s topic of MEASURING PERFORMANCE, than to offer you an on-air coaching session with the one, the only, photographer, real estate agent, co-working studio owner, Marlo Laney.

If you listened way back when we launched The Make it Snappy Productivity Show, you may remember Episode #2, my ORIGINAL recorded coaching session with Marlo.  If so, you’re probably familiar with some of what she’s got going on as the owner of MLP Studios and MLP photography, where she specializes in headshot photos.

AND, at the end of Episode 2, I promised you, my faithful listeners that we would circle back with Marlo, in about 90-days or so and I STRIVE to be a man of my word, so here we are!  

Marlo Laney, owns MLP Studios, where she specializes in “HEADSHOT” photography, and offers a co-working space for entrepreneurs to make it SNAPPEN…

Marlo’s recently returned to her REAL ESTATE roots, and asked me to help her develop a plan, to gain more control over her time.

I’m excited for you to listen to this week’s episode with my guest who was once again BRAVE enough to be coached on the show, Marlo Laney.
