For timely notification of all the “Coming Soon” content, be sure to join my mailing list by downloading my special report – “The 8 Fatal Mistakes that Time Advisers Make.” If you didn’t add your name to the clipboard or enter the draw for my book during the session, or if you missed my session altogether, send me email to be added to my temporary ICF Conference-only list. Those who attended the conference and opted-in will be the very first to see the materials below, which are eventually going to be made public. Here’s what’s coming:

  • The audio and slides from my ICF Conference presentation will be made available on this page to the general public, in the next 60 – 90  days.
  • In the next few weeks I’ll be publicly releasing the last (2013) complete version of the cheat sheets for the 11 Fundamentals. These will include the rubric/cheat sheet I shared in Cleveland. There’ll be a new version released later this year in the pages of my new book (see below) – I’ll update your materials at that time.
  • During the session I gave away a single access to the Time Management Adviser’s Self-Assessment. If you’re interested in finding out more about purchasing your own assessment click here or on the icon below.

I’m heading home from Cleveland to complete the last stages of editing my book, whose draft cover  is shown below. Energized and refreshed, I can more clearly see the difference I hope it will make for time advisers and their clients.

Thanks for an awesome conference to the participants in my session, and to all the organizers who did such an amazing job.
