 I am so grateful for what Maggie has done for our business. It was really easy to get overwhelmed and too close to my business to really see what was best for it. Maggie came in and helped in every aspect of our operations, project management, and strategy. She streamlined communication systems, provided invaluable productivity hacks, created structure in our daily operations, and left us with tools and guidance that we couldn't possibly put a price on. Maggie is the real deal and brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge; hiring her was like hiring a team of people. She has helped me take my business from zero to 100. Thank you, Maggie!

Maggie's ability to see through the bulls*t was beyond helpful starting my business. I was able to cut through all the business needs, pass so much off to her, and fine tune my priorities given her guidance and understanding of what I was trying to accomplish. She made everything easier and helped me with making quick decisions instead of dwelling before making a call; saving me time and money. Her ability to take over multiple project, run them from start to finish, and plan for the future allowed me the time breathe and do what I love.

I have no words for how much Maggie has helped me. As the face and artist of my brand but also the brains of my business - I struggled to balance the two. Separating and handling both sides became paralyzing for me. Maggie showed me how to structure my time, took lead on organizing my projects, creating an organizational system, and somehow find HOURS in my schedule that I didn’t think I had. I never thought I could plan for “time-off” and accomplish so much without having an anxiety attack. Now - my life is currently more balanced and fulfilling than ever. You do it all Maggie(but really, you're like four employees in one) - and with such grace. Thank you for being you!

I’m so grateful to have met Maggie and brought her strategic guidance and abilities into my business practices. She has helped me find “sane” in my incredibly busy schedule and has organizes my life and my business in the best ways. She is constantly introducing me to new hacks, apps, and systems to make it easier to do what I love with minimal stress. She was born to do this work and can bring a myriad of support to any business. From a workshop at my home, to assisting me while traveling, to building a working schedule that gives me time to rest, work and grow— Maggie is my girl.

Maggie is someone who I instantly connected with and has been an invaluable member to the team. Running a startup requires not only great organizational and communicative skills, but also creative and intuitive thinking, which Maggie has demonstrated in all facets of our business. She solved problems quickly and efficiently so the entire team could focus on achieving our goals. Her sense of conscientiousness paired with her positive sense of humor is something rare, and it has helped our team achieve tremendous success.

 

ABOUT ME

2016-05-16 19.30.07.jpg

I started consulting as a Business Assistant for multiple clients in 2011 as a 'side-hustle' while still holding onto my full-time roles in HR and project management. After five years of successful consulting work, it was clear that I needed to transition Business Assisting into my full-time role. I support entrepreneurs and business owners who need help checking a variety of stuff off their to-do lists once and for all; then they can go on to make the big moves while I operate seamlessly in the background. 

 

What does 'THE NOW IS GOLDEN' mean?

It was natural to build my business around my belief that the NOW is the only moment we really have to be concerned with, lit up by, and fully immersed in.

THE NOW (at the present moment; without further delay; immediately; at once)
+
GOLDEN (having glowing vitality; radiant; full of happiness, prosperity, or vigor)
=

THE NOW IS RADIANT, GLOWING WITH VITALITY, HAPPINESS, AND VIGOR

When I am actively present in my life I am much more conscious of my thoughts and actions— how I wake up, who I choose to work with, where I decide to work from, how I sign off on emails. My Intention is to stay present in life, to see the abundance around each corner, and to be free from the idea that I must be anyone other than my truest self. 

THE NOW (at the present moment; without further delay; immediately; at once) + GOLDEN (having glowing vitality; radiant; full of happiness, prosperity, or vigor)=
