I will help you to understand the 10 most important things you need to know to reach the goals you want to achieve.

Students, I have a secret for you.  Better time management leads to:

  • Improved grades
  • More time to study
  • More relaxation time
  • Roadmap for accomplishing school related and extra-curricular goals

What My Time, My Way™ students have to say:

“…this will be a great opportunity for my future and help me roll my life into place.”

"I've learned about goals and goal helpers.  I also learned about priorities which I can use to achieve goals...I will apply all of this so I can manage band and school and work.  It's been a great class and I've learned a lot!  Thanks!"

My Time, My Way™ for Students is a fun, interactive, and individualized student time management program by Simple Better Solutions®.

My Time, My Way™ for Students is as it sounds. Each student learns key time management concepts. They learn how to adapt each concept to create their own individualized time management plan.

This is an interactive and individualized student time management program for 7th – 12th grade students.

Students learn via a series of fun, engaging and simplified exercises and activities.

Each session focuses on one element of time management. The course is designed so that each session builds on the learnings from the previous session.  At the end of 10 sessions, each student will possess a binder that will house his/her individualized time management action plan.  Each student’s binder will be different because each student is different.  The plans will be individualized and actionable.

My Time, My Way™ for Students will be offered at Kids First Sports Center on Tuesdays!  There will be 2 classes held on Tuesdays.  Pick the time that works best for you!!

Tuesdays: 4pm – 5pm
Tuesdays: 5:10pm – 6:10pm

So, Who Started My Time, My Way™ for Students Anyway??

My name is Dara.  I have always been known for my focused productivity and time management.  At the age of 18, while a marketing student at Hampton University, I made the decision to obtain my MBA from a top tier business school by the age of 24.  As I matriculated over the next 4 years, I remained focused on gaining the academic and leadership achievements necessary to make this happen.

Post earning my MBA from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business (by age 24), I enjoyed a very successful career in corporate marketing.  I led numerous fruitful brand management, retail marketing, regional marketing and foodservice category management efforts for Fortune 200 companies.

I later began a career break while my children were younger.  I relaunched my career as a Time Management Strategist once both kids started school.

I have been a Time Management Strategist since 2012.  In that time, I have successfully executed numerous workshops and one-on-one personalized solutions.  In 2016, I launched the very successful My Time, My Way™ program.

I am a proud Working Moms Against Guilt contributor.  I serve as a mentor/coach for the Black Career Women’s Network.  I am also an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Oh, and I co-manage the budding young careers of a musician and an athlete (my kids).

My simplified “you can do it” approach is engaging, friendly and actionable.

I am so fortunate to be able to utilize my strengths towards helping others to improve the time management and productivity skills that are so critical to a successful personal and professional life.
