Do you struggle to keep track of everything for your business and personal life? Emily Marko is a Visual Problem Solver. Emily began her career in corporate graphic design but when she was introduced to the world of “graphic recording” and “visual practitioners,” she was instantly hooked. Eventually she started her own business and developed processes to help her clients solve problems, capture ideas, build action plans and share stories by creating visual representations of complex idea. Emily has great advice for using visuals to help sort out the clutter in your mind and also for helping to achieve your goals. I’ve already started using the tips she offers and have found them really helpful for cutting through overwhelm and getting organized.

Topics we cover:

— The different ways that people use “graphic recording” in many different industries
— Emily’s journey from working in corporate graphic design to starting her business as a “visual problem solver”
— The power of learning your personal values
— How joining a network helped Emily get her first clients when leaving her corporate job
— The hectic travel schedule and values clash that led her to look for a different way of doing business
— Connecting with other local professionals in your industry
— How the word “just” became an indicator that Emily needed to gain more clarity on her business
— The “Assemble Your Story” process Emily developed to discover the core fundamental elements of a business
— How visuals help us make sense of what’s going on in our heads
— An exercise you can try to use visuals to help you achieve your goals
— The online course Emily is running in January to help participants review their past year and plan their goals for 2017
