  • Take this course when you are transitioning to a home office


It is March 2020 and that means one thing: self-isolation.

Suddenly you find yourself working from home every day.

That can't be too hard, right? It's basically like being at the office just without the commute and wearing slippers... right...?

Not quite.

Working from home means a new set of expectations, a new schedule, new tools, and - most importantly - treating your home as a work-space rather than a living-space.

This short and to-the-point course will teach you:

  • How to get out of a "home" mentality and into a "work" mentality

  • How to set up a workspace that allows you to focus

  • How to manage your day - and breaks - to stay productive

Take the course  to prepare your desk, your tools, your brain, and your procrastination plan and make this an opportunity to improve your work practices.

Hello and welcome to my profile page.

I'm Rebecca G Brizi, a business consultant, avid reader, and dedicated drinker of coffee.

Mainly: I'm a strong believer in how systems and plans make you better at your job. Because when you don't have to worry about "what comes next", you can use all your energy for growing your business.

My courses are all premised on this theory. This is material I use to consult with my clients and to run my own business. You will find courses for freelancers and courses for small businesses, and courses that apply to both.

A bit about my background: I spent eleven years working in a software company, joining at the initial startup phase and moving the company through a product change, to establishing a new market and subsidiary company in the United States. The latter was generating more than 45% of business growth (by volume and value) within 3 years.

Most importantly: I learned the impact of good strategy. In other words, the importance of ensuring all our business goals, plans, people, and resources were properly aligned and working towards the same goal.

Since March 2017 I work freelance providing consulting, training, and plan creations for small and medium sized businesses who are establishing their market or pursuing new growth strategies.

I hope you enjoy my courses, I hope you learn great new ideas for your business, and I encourage you to send me your questions, success stories, and comments.
