Atlanta traffic can be terrible. Many times, I have long drives to client’s homes, often arriving a bit early to allow for mishaps in traffic. When I arrive early, I usually park away from their home until the time I am supposed to arrive.
At times my client is also returning to their home and they get caught up in traffic. I sit and wait for their arrival but now the clock is ticking for them on using their assigned time. I have had clients lose up to and even over an hour of their scheduled time this way. Other times clients have forgotten or been unrealistic about tasks they have had to do before our appointment and I get a call or text about being late as I am almost at their home.
Just yesterday, a client lost 2 of her 3 paid hours. She has occasionally used virtual organizing with me before, but those sessions had been mostly consultations and brainstorming sessions. I pointed out to her again yesterday that we could set up virtual sessions working on the projects she needed to do. I would be her body double and accountability partner via Facetime. She could set her times when she knew she could be home for at least an hour and not lose paid time trying to get home.
We set two times for this coming Friday where she would have everything in place for the project and we would Facetime for an hour. Then we plan to take an hour break where she was not paying for my time and resume for another hour. After that second hour she could continue to work for a while and send me pictures and texts showing her progress.
This is one example of how virtual organization saves time and money for the client.
