April Newsletter -2013

When I was with a client recently she confided to me that her office is so disorganised that she feels like her mind is about to explode! Since I quite like my client (we'll call her Sam), I suggested to her that we avoid such an explosion and rather set about installing systems and solutions for her that would create a more productive space.
