Her skills definitely helped me in my business!
I was so impressed with Amber. She easily pinpointed areas that I needed to work on. Her skills definitely helped me in my business. She is really good at what she does and the bonus is that on top of it all, she is easy to work with, pleasant, professional and overall a terrific person! I would definitely recommend her.
Exponentially increases the time you have
You won't regret working with Amber but you will regret it later if you don't work with her. Working with Amber exponentially increases the time you have available to invest in other areas of your life and business.
Took my production to the next level
Amber is thorough, highly detail oriented, personable, and extremely competent at what she does. She was able to guide me through each of the steps to step up effective systems for MY business, not a cookie cutter system that is used over and over. She took the time to understand my goals and establish more efficient and effective business systems to take my production to the next level.
Solidified business systems and got them up and running
Amber helped to solidify business systems and helped get them up and running. I highly recommend Amber if you need accountability, motivation, and help putting systems in place.
Packed with step by step digestible information!
Amber's masterclasses (and podcasts) have improved my day to day productivity while chiseling away the overwhelming feelings of being an entrepreneur. Packed with straight forward, step by step, and digestible information, her teaching has allowed me to immediately implement activities I've been wanting to improve for years. Thank you Amber, I wouldn't be making this progress without you!
Consistently blown away by Amber's coaching!
I hired Amber to help me take back my time & allow me to focus on being creative and focus on the things within my nonprofit that I love most and that bring the most value to my team & my organization! I am consistently blown away by her coaching & strategy sessions and how much it's helping me! I have had breakthroughs in my time management, my abilities to curate the life & business I really want, AND have new creative ideas for goals I've had for years!! These sessions have been even more incredible than I expected and I just want to thank Amber so much for taking time with me <3
Loaded with practical, realistic, and usable tools and advice!
Prior to this course, I was swimming against my procrastination habit because I felt overwhelmed and struggling with perfectionism freezing my progress. The ideal week and weekly review I learned in this course have helped me to feel more confident about what is happening, and what is going to happen, with my to-do list, project list, and schedule. I can more readily recognize where delegation of a task is the best answer for the things that I don't need to do myself.
The course covered the content I was expecting and so much more! I liked how the productivity tools and sessions built upon one another and the last session was fire! I watched it two more times because it was so loaded with practical, realistic, and usable tools and advice! I particularly liked how the sessions built up to the last grand finale session where the information blocks from the earlier sessions all came together.
The program is a doable commitment (one hour per week) and affordable (great price point!) while being jam-packed full of helpful and workable information. I liked being able to re-watch portions of the videos in order to squeeze every last bit of information I could out of each session. Really nicely done. I appreciate Amber's positive energy and her friendly but direct manner of instruction/coaching.
Offered solutions that fit me and the way I work
I was overwhelmed with how to do my tasks in a simple and efficient way, that didn't take more time than it was worth. Amber lasered in with her insightful, ever so helpful way, got to the root of my specific issues, and offered solutions that fit me and the way I work. Her insights, tips, and recommendations have been invaluable and have prevented much gnashing of teeth and migraines. Not only did she solve a bunch of challenges I was having, she made it totally and completely doable and dare I say fun! Working with Amber is top notch problem solving and pain relief.
Able to reduce waste and surge forward!
I had the pleasure of working with Amber from the beginning of 2017 to 2018! I had never had a coach before other than my physical trainer so this was an eye opening experience. I found that I was able to throw all "my balls" into the air and, with Amber's talent and assistance, catch them, put them in order, and have them make sense so that I could continue to work at my optimum! So much of the time, there are time wasters and I found by concentrating and discussing my business with her, I was able to reduce the waste and surge forward!
Less clutter in my inbox and my brain!
What was really valuable was the breakdown of the five different steps of taming your inbox. I was excited at how simple it was considering the massive return it provided. I appreciated understanding how the folders create less clutter in your inbox and in return, less clutter in your brain.
My whole life – personal and professional – feels balanced.
Working with Amber has been nothing short of enlightening! Now all the systems I need are in place and functioning smoothly, I have a strong grasp on my schedule and I am more productive than ever. My whole life – personal and professional – feels balanced.
Have time now to create new products and services!
I kept getting frustrated with my unpredictable schedule and how to grow my business when I felt like I didn't have time to focus on activities that moved the needle. I'd done nearly everything (Amber) recommended on her show but when I finally sat down with her for a coaching session, she helped me see the time block that I had in my schedule each week that would allow me to focus on growth. Since our session, I was able to do a big product launch that I never would have considered in the past. I'm months ahead in content scheduling and have time now to create new products and services that are going to help me diversify. Thanks Amber!
Coaching is a business asset that is a key ingredient to growth and success
I was the classic over-worked business owner. Coming home late, never finishing projects, pulled in a million directions at once. I knew something had to change (my wife DEFINITELY knew something had to change!). I needed someone to help me to do this as I knew I couldn’t do it myself. My business mentor recommended Amber to me and I decided to book a session. I canceled and moved the first session three times as I was too busy to make it happen. It became a running joke with my staff that I was too disorganized to schedule time with the organization coach. Fast forward to today – I now have a daily schedule; tasks get done and things don’t drop through the cracks. I spend time each week working on business development rather than chasing my tail to just keep the business running. I delegate better, feel calmer and most importantly – spend time with my wife and my son. I vowed to not be the business owner dad who missed soccer games or birthday parties and was never home at dinner time. Amber has been instrumental in developing systems so I can run and grow the business I want and be the husband and father I promised myself to be. Amber is excellent in helping understand the business and create a custom structure with me that works. She asks the right (and sometimes) hard questions to get me to think about where the business is going and how I can organize my life to achieve those goals. Amber helped me understand not just vision and goal setting, but how to effectively create a plan to have the time to work towards and ultimately achieve those goals. I honestly don’t know how I managed to keep everything together before I worked with Amber. Amber has become an integral part of my team. She communicates ideas and concepts extremely well and is an excellent motivator. She now also works with my key management staff, which has helped them professionally and personally. If I could sum up my coaching sessions – I would say coaching is a business asset that is a key ingredient to growth and success.
Great value for the transformative information and lessons given
I had been having issues with being able to effectively get my day started with a new assistant, finding a solid routine that balances work and home life, and getting all my tasks and calendars in one place which was a huge issue since I split time between offices. Since executing what I learned in the program, my assistant leaves me alone until our daily meeting (Amber’s suggestion worked like a charm!), I have consolidated all of my tasks to Trello, I no longer use paper for notes or task lists, and I am making progress toward fully have integrating Trello with my calendar.
While I still have a lot of work to do, I feel this (program) gave me some good basics to start me down a better path of time management. Some of the tips and lessons learned have truly transformed my ability to be more productive in the office. Amber did a good job at starting with a larger picture, identifying our current issues, and then breaking it down and providing solutions to those issues. It was a great value for the information and lessons given. I have spoken about it highly to numerous people.
Challenged my professional AND personal growth
With Amber’s guidance, I have implemented an abundance of new processes, hired a new staff member, and opened a new office. I am also working on a potential partnership with another professional and she is playing an integral part of that process. Amber has challenged not only my professional growth, but also my personal growth. I am looking forward to working with Amber for some time to come!
How every business coaching session should go!
This is definitely how every business coaching session should go in my book. Thank you, Amber De La Garza, for an incredibly heart felt, eye-opening and empowering day of downloading, learning, and reconstructing my life. The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa was the PERFECT choice. You're a beautiful soul with an extraordinary gift. It is an honor to work with you! I know what the before looks like oh-so-well. I can't wait to see the "after!"
Small changes that made a HUGE impact.
She helped me to organize my schedule and prioritize my day. Many of her suggestions were small changes that made a HUGE impact. I highly recommend Amber to anyone.
Invaluable, eye-opening experience
Very quickly Amber was able to point out activities in my day that are monopolizing my time and help me to develop strategies to address those in a more effective way. Amber realized that I had one foot in my new role as an entrepreneur and one foot in my former role as support staff. That realization alone was an "eye opener" for me to lean on the support staff that I have, trust them to do their tasks effectively, and confidently focus my energy on the responsibilities and opportunities within my new role. Thank you Amber, this experience has been invaluable!
Determined avenues to be more organized and effective
I have greatly benefited from working with Amber to streamline my business and gain greater productivity levels. Amber has great intuitive ability to determine possible avenues to helping people be more organized and effective. She is a great listener and has always inquired whether an approach she has suggested would be workable for me. I have implemented many strategies and put them into daily action steps that have certainly helped me in my business and in my mindset.
Created the results we needed.
Amber provided training and created the results we needed. Her knowledge is what we lacked, her skills where exceptional, and the value was so worth it.
Business running smoother, with less stress and increased revenue
Amber has become a valuable and trusted member of the team. She has helped us pause and think through our processes and change many aspects of how we run our business and client relationships. In doing so, we have greatly improved our efficiency and productivity. Our business is running smoother and with less stress. Our staff is more focused and organized. Our calendar, reviews, systems, travel, etc. all has been greatly improved and more productive. We have increased our business revenue as well as peace in the office. We will continue to work with Amber as a trusted and valuable resource on an ongoing basis.
Lasting positive changes in the way I do business
Amber is honest, ethical, and gets things done! With her help, I checked numerous items off my To-Do list that had been hanging over my head for months if not years! Her services have made lasting positive changes in the way I do business. I will benefit from my time with Amber for years to come.
Gave me a better understanding of how to time block
I struggle with distractions and lack of planning. I also have no consistent way to track to-dos or tasks and fail to make concise plans. A lot of it is in my head or in a running notebook that I don’t do a great job of using. This program gave me a way to approach improving my time management skills (or lack thereof) and a better understanding of how to time block in order to fit in " all the things." Since doing the Time Management Made Simple program, I anticipate big changes on feeling less overwhelmed!
Thorough and practical program that makes a big difference
I’d been experiencing difficulty with managing tasks and projects, creating a model week, energy management, and general overwhelm.
I was familiar with the concepts from Amber’s podcast but this tied everything together and made it applicable to me. I am using all of the thorough and practical information I learned and it is making a big difference. Amber has a gift for figuring out roadblocks to productivity and solutions to those problems.
Now, I am tweaking my model week, using morning, evening, start up and shutdown routines, implementing a task management system, keeping my emails at inbox zero, and focusing on profit producing metrics. Thanks Amber!
Increased staff's ability to handle a greater workload
I hired Amber for her coaching and training services. She helped design new and more efficient systems for my staff and, as a result, increased their ability to handle more workload. I highly recommend her company and services!
Created rhythm in my week and seeing results!
After listening to Amber's podcast, and especially the on-air strategy sessions, I knew working with her would create more productivity in my week - and increase my potential to retain clients and create new client relationships - by making the most of my time.
My theory is my week is going to happen, one way or another, may as well be as intentional as possible at making the most of my time. With Amber's coaching, we have created a strategy that's created a rhythm in my week that takes advantage of my strengths. In a short amount of time, I'm already seeing results of the first framework we created just for me.
I now have a clear path!
Amber helped me with next steps. I was feeling so overwhelmed with my accounting before our strategy session. Amber helped me to see how my reluctance to dig into the finances was holding me back in my business. She gave me actionable steps and held me accountable to some goals. I am still doing the work, but I now have a clear path and my finances are more organized than ever!
Make every day as productive as possible
Amber has helped me put systems and strategies in place in order to make every day as productive as possible. Our sessions have been full of brainstorming ideas to keep me on track with my routines so that I can hit my goals. Amber is down to earth and very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Amber to anyone looking to take their business to the next level.
Overdelivered and transformed my business!
Amber’s group coaching and training experience was amazing! She definitely over-delivered far more than I expected. She helped transform my business, all the way from the foundation through growing my team. She gave us all the tools we need for everything in between those two stages. I have definitely seen a huge increase in my productivity and revenue. I am now confident with my business plan and goals ahead. I no longer overcomplicate areas of my business and have a clear agenda each day. This experience has given me extra time in my schedule and less to worry about. I would highly recommend Amber De La Garza, The Productivity Specialist for all business owners and entrepreneurs. You cannot go wrong with her.
Doing much better with my planning, calendar, and routines!
I didn't know what to expect from Time Management Made Simple, but I knew it would be awesome based on Amber’s existing content. The format of taking small, actionable steps and building on prior concepts really resonated with me in a way no other productivity method or planning process ever had.
I loved learning to identify and apply high-value activities to workload planning across our entire team, and finally creating my ideal week. TMMS is an incredible framework for high-performing folks with tons of priorities to get truly focused on actual productivity.
Helping me cut through the clutter
I own a few different businesses with a whole lot of moving parts and I had listened to Amber on a podcast and I wanted to see if she could help me cut through the clutter. We got started and she has been great with helping me focus on what's most important. I have learned a lot from her and I'm thankful for all my time spent.
Guaranteed to prosper and expand your business
I am so grateful for Amber’s mentorship through her S.T.O.P.! group coaching program. She helped me learn how to focus more on running my two businesses and become more organized in my personal and professional dealings, especially in my office. I gained great momentum and was able to quickly finish my 2019 vision board. I also had a great time working with the other professional individuals in our group. I encourage you to invest in your business by enrolling in Amber’s S.T.O.P.! program because you are guaranteed to prosper and expand your business.
Take the next step and schedule a Discovery Call
Having Amber focus her insights on my business' productivity challenges was unbelievably valuable.
If you think Amber is great on her podcast, take the next step and schedule a Discovery Call to find out how you can work with her!
I was blown away by Amber's ability to extract the true cause of inefficiencies and create a new plan based on what's already working. While the challenges I presented during my strategy session were geared toward my home life, she quickly recognized successes in my business and translated them to my home life. She encouraged me to utilize my existing resources in a new way, allowing me to make progress in areas that were previously stalled. Amber recommended using my business manager for my business to debrief all of my personal tasks and allow her to help me manage them (and take ownership of many - which she was happy to do) - it has been a game changer! In the week following our strategy session, my son's birthday party was booked, invitations sent and cake ordered - all I had to do was answer a few questions. We now meet weekly to go over home-related tasks she can take off my plate, which leaves me more room to build my business. I highly recommend working with Amber for some out-of-the box thinking that will have real impact on your life and business.
I highly suggest Amber if you want to take the next step in business!
I'm not sure where to start! Amber is an absolutely incredible coach and person. I started out in group coaching with Keller Williams and she single-handedly changed my career. I'm not sure if I would have been nearly as successful my first year if I didn't have Amber's high level of accountability, mindfulness, and creative support. She understands the ups and downs of owning your own business and helped me through any and all problems, from staying focused during a really tough break-up to branding myself to ensure my business continually grows. I never understood the importance of having a support system because I was always very "independent" but Amber's insights and support have been invaluable. She helped me realize my unique potential, my self-inflicted challenges, the importance of time management and taking action, how to focus and achieve what I truly want, and most of all how to overcome the challenges of running my own business. I HIGHLY suggest Amber to anyone who is looking to take the next step in their business.
