June Meeting: Take Back Your Time
Feeling busy, “whelmed,” overwhelmed, or over-overwhelmed in all the work of work and life? Feel like adding anything on top of it all would be the straw that broke the camel’s back?
When you’re busy balancing modern work and life it can feel like growth in your career or business is elusive… but often there’s a better way—and it involves learning to take back your time so you work smarter not harder on the things that really matter.
In this training led by Maya Sharfi of Build Yourself, you’ll learn how to take back control over your time and communicate your boundaries. She’ll share top strategies for freeing up time and working smarter not harder. You’ll learn to reclaim your focus and your ability to grow into the career or business you want.

The Florida Architects Political Action Committee (FAPAC) supports advocacy on behalf of Florida architects. The purpose of FAPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by architects help elect candidates who understand and support your interests. Advocacy and grassroots engagement are the keys to protecting your practice.
