About Sheila

I am so glad that you stopped by my internet home. I am Sheila Hawkins, The Personal Productivity Alchemist and I am revolutionizing the way women business owners get things done. One of the first things that most notice is that there’s nothing normal about me or my approach to getting things done. I am a rebel when it comes just about everything you can think of and, given my non-conformist ways, I’ve always seen things a bit differently than the average person. I have the privilege of helping women go from being frazzled and flying by the seat of their pants to taking back the power they’ve given over to this thing we call time. Instead of having time and other things run their days, they have control and have time for themselves too.

Let’s talk about you

Now, that’s enough about me for the moment, let’s talk about you. You’re a conscious, Spirit-led, female solopreneur and I know exactly where you are right now. You’re probably pretty frustrated. You know you have to get a handle on managing your time, but you don’t know how to do it. You’re ready to let go of the habits like procrastination that don’t serve or support you and to figure out how to finally get your office organized and keep it clutter free. I’m here to help you uncover the challenges you have when it comes to being productive because you really don’t know what the reasons for those challenges are. I’m here to take your hand and work with you in a way that not only reveals your challenges but helps you to really take a deeper look. To stop looking at the surface stuff and delve deep, begin to dig down to the root cause and to look at who it is you’re being that’s producing your challenges.

You get so caught up in doing things so that you can get somewhere that it hasn’t occurred to you to think about who you’re being inside of that, and that’s what I do. As we work together we look at your ways of being, which of those ways support you, which ways don’t and create new ones. I help you implement the solutions, we look at anything that comes up, address those things and tweak the solutions. Those remedies help you eliminate your challenges and allow you to up level to increase your productivity so that you can get to the important things and experience the freedom you became an entrepreneur to experience.

You are the reason I’m here and part of my “why”. My purpose on the planet is to change the way women solopreneurs view time and the way they engage and approach it when it comes to getting things done. I work with coaches, consultants and service providers to help them shift their perspective of time and learn how to, as I say, wield it.

Been there, done that

I’ve been right where you are. I’ve had procrastination plague me, and I mean plague me and tried all kinds of solutions. Everything that everybody said would work, but those things didn’t get me anywhere. I always ended up back at square 1. It occurred to me that I was the common denominator so I started to look within to see what was going on. I had things going on inside and ways of being that allowed for procrastination to be part of my world, zap my productivity and impede my progress and growth. I grew up with mother who was a clutter bug to the extent that the entire house was in disarray. Hindsight being 20/20 I saw that the clutter was due to the emotional things she held on to. Her emotional clutter showed up in the space and it impacted the whole family. I’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt. Forget about pieces of paper, or degrees and letters to tag on behind my name; that experience alone qualifies me to be the one to take you through the process.

I discovered how to work my way through the things that had my productivity level low and kept me from taking that next step. I moved beyond those blockages and I can help you do the very same thing. I use practical, and some not so practical tools and techniques to help you move beyond being stuck. I can help you get the most out of your time by creating supportive new habits and environments, showing you how to get the important things done and still have the freedom that you desire.

What Makes Me Unique?

I don’t believe in or use one-size-fits-all solutions with my clients. I mentioned that I have a totally revolutionary approach to productivity. Let me share with you that “revolutionary” is not my word, that comes from those who know me and who have worked with me. My ability to see what lies beneath the surface and unique approach enables my clients to experience personal transformation and get the most out of their time, increase productivity and positively impact their bottom line. The solutions that I create are as individual as you are, since I use a one-on-one, personalized approach in creating the system that works best for you and meets your needs. I make the time to look not only at your needs and goals, but also at your personality and lifestyle to ensure that our solutions are practical, sustainable and user-friendly. Through that process I help you create meaningful order from your chaos.

Whether it’s supporting the creation of positive new work habits, creating better work space flow, setting up schedules and systems, or finding more efficient ways to perform daily tasks, I work with you to look at things on a deeper level to see why your challenges are there in the first place. Then we’ll discover how you personally relate to time and create customized, practical, cost-efficient ways to maximize your time. The goal is to give you more time and energy for the things that truly matter, like your family, friends and personal growth.  The things that matter most.

In addition to transforming and personalizing environments and systems, I am a contributing writer for The New Face of Leadership magazine, WomenMoneyPower.com i-Magazine and Own Your Power Communications. I am also a columnist for the Detroit Smart Pages, author of Wielding Time: Taking Back Your Power To Increase Productivity and co-author of Who’s Going To Stop Us Now? I’m also one of 30 experts interviewed by Michael Brecht, CEO of Doodle for The Productivity Book. Michael has worked for many years with thousands of productive people around the globe.
