Setting Boundaries, Time Management, Productivity, Stress Management, Avoiding Burnout & Avoid Wasting Time | taught by Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Do you work from home?

Have you recently had to start working from home due to coronavirus quarantine?

Are you an entrepreneur, with the ultimate freedom of being your own boss... but you realize you aren't the best at managing your stress or your time?

Whether you’re a business owner, independent contractor, at-home parent, telecommuter, or you're coping with coronavirus quarantine (covid-19) we know you need:

  • More balance and less stress

  • More time management and less burnout

  • More boundaries and less wasted time

The idea to "work from home" or be self-employed sounds fantastic! And it is (or can be)... but...

The illusion of freedom quickly fades and our personal lives, our productivity, and our family and friends suffer... we get out of balance. We end up feeling stressed out, burnt out and overwhelmed. But there is hope! 

In a decade working from home and being self-employed (working as a husband-and-wife entrepreneur team), we have learned the hard way how NOT to manage our work and personal lives while working from home.

We have also coached and trained thousands of entrepreneurs, at-home-parents and work from home dreamers (and now coronavirus quarantiners) how to find work life balance while working from home.

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are professional speakers, trainers, and coaches. Their mission is to provide tools that empower people to ignite their dreams,  unleash their potential and fulfill their purpose. Through their  company, Transformation Services, Inc., they provide digital content  publishing, online courses, and life coach training programs that act as  a catalyst for personal empowerment. Joeel  is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling  and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D.  in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. Using the science of  psychology and human potential, they train leading edge entrepreneurs,  leaders, life coaches, and individuals how to master the power of their  mind and create their destiny.They  are serial entrepreneurs who challenge and inspire others to take their  power back through self-employment as INDIEpreneurs, (self-employed  freedom junkies). Between the two of them, they’ve started over a dozen  businesses, from photography to a non-profit teen coaching center, and  from an import business to a holistic virtual office. They  became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they fully transitioned their print  magazine into digital format because they found they could reach an  exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. They  closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person  workshops and speeches into information products and online courses. Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go  “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave  the house, they continued reach and inspire their market by creating 50  online courses in only 2 years, including digitizing their popular life  coach training programs and certifications. Today, they have served 300,000+ students from 195 countries.
