“An excellent source of ways to preserve your sanity and live a productive life."

“I thought I was organized. SAYA IS ORGANIZED. She breaks down her system of the best apps, tools and tricks in this incredible class. I'm already implementing nearly all of the recommended tools and have streamlined my productivity, increased my efficiency and eliminated time-wasters from my every day. Loved this class and Saya. Highly recommended!”

Who's in charge, you or time?

If you feel like you're in a hamster wheel, if you're heard of this thing called "free time" but haven't been able to locate it, if you want to be in control of your life, this is for you. Time shouldn't manage you; you should manage time.

You know there are numerous tools and mentalities in regards to how to manage your time better. But where to start? Where to spend your resources? When presented with an overwhelming number of options, many of us become paralyzed and choose to remain in scenarios that don’t work. That’s no way to live life.

You see those people, the ones who make it look easy, and you wonder how they do it. You wish you knew their secret. In this session, Saya of Mac & Cheese Productions℠ shares her secrets and supports you in taking action and making choices to best fit your life. She narrows the vast topic of time management, making the daunting digestible and with her charismatic personality and penchant for storytelling, fun and engaging even.

Saya’s first conversation with her now husband was about their love of spreadsheets. A Huffington Post article called her “Chicago’s productivity-guru,” she’s an Evernote Certified Consultant, and was featured in the Gmail Genius series. Saya’s run a successful business since 2004, filled with event curation, keeping track of and adhering to deadlines upon deadlines, collaborating with and managing thousands of people, being laid-back yet professional, and wearing various hats many of which do not match, all of which she has done with a smile on her face and an overall feeling of “I’ve got this.” It can be done.

This is part of Mac & Cheese Productions ' I Can't series, where adults state they're unable to do something, they try it/learn about it with a bunch of other adults who also "can't," and everyone proves themselves wrong and not only does the thing, but enjoys it and says, "That wasn't so bad. In fact, kinda fun. Good for me! What's next?!" Past I Can'ts have included yoga, improv, draw, have a dog, side hustle, and buy a home. To see other current offerings, head to https://goo.gl/UiuKZ6
