Life Work Synergy's Lisa ...
Life Work Synergy's Lisa Whaley uses a variety of tools to manage her life as entrepreneur, wife and mother.
Lisa J. Whaley
knows a thing or two about balancing life, work, and family.
has a husband, two college-aged daughters (one of whom lives at home), a teenage son and a 19-month-old granddaughter.
She's also the president of Life Work Synergy L.L.C., a Woodbridge, Va.-based coaching firm, a technology consultant, and an avid exerciser who squeezes her workouts in before her workday starts, and her last client call of the day.
So how does Whaley
manage all of these responsibilities and still find time to read a book, enjoy a cup of tea, or spend time chatting with her
"Technology has allowed me to create a good work-life equation," says Whaley
"I can check my email from anywhere and address client needs and other pressing issues quickly," says Whaley
Write it Down … Digitally: Up until a couple of years ago, Whaley
lugged around a 6" X 9" Daytimer, which housed her
calendar, lists, and notes.
Today, all of those important documents are stored on her
BlackBerry, and synced regularly with her
With this tool, Whaley
can manage every corner of her
life (business, family and play), including the household groceries.
"This is so much better than using the old paper lists on the refrigerator," she
says, "which you can easily forget when you're walking out the door."
Invest in a wireless card, if you need one: Depending on your occupation and the time you spend away from the office, a wi-fi card for your laptop could pay off handsomely.
"If you find yourself driving around town a lot, looking for a Starbucks
network to connect to," says Whaley
, "then the $60-or-so a month spent on a wi-fi card could be a big time-saver for you."
