January 2017
Reduced stress. Increased productivity. Improved well-being.
Forte Organizers helps individuals and families stay organized at home, as well as teaching business people organization skills at work.
In The News...
Lori gives us some great tips in her most recent Dayton Daily News articles:
In addition to keeping your business cards in your purse or wallet, keep a stash of them in the glove box of your car.
If you forget to replenish the cards in your purse or wallet, a quick trip to your car may keep you from losing out on a sale.
Also, take a picture of your business card with your phone. Some people may prefer you text or email your card to them.
Wrap It Up Folks...
Now that the holidays are behind us, take the time to separate your holiday wrapping paper from the rest of your gift wrap.
Store your holiday paper near your holiday decorations since you won’t be needing it until the holidays are upon us once again.
Keeping your holiday paper in a separate location, makes looking for your birthday, baby, wedding and other special occasion paper easier to find.

One More Thing...
January is National Get Organized Month!
Since many of you have made getting organized one of your New Year's Resolutions, now is the perfect time to get started.
Unfortunately, many of you don’t know where to begin.
Start by reading Elisabeth Elliot’s quote, “When you don’t know what to do, do the thing in front of you.”
There’s your starting point. Good luck making your get more organized resolution a reality.
