Streamline processes so that they are efficient

This workshop was ideal for everything that I needed. It was a full day for the first day and I was able to utilize that skill and go home and practice. Then the second day and third day built on this.

I have learned how to streamline my processes so that they are efficient. So it’s much easier to find, track, and collate the information I need.
