Hi, I’m Deb.
I’m Deb Lee, Digital Productivity Coach, Certified Professional Organizer®, speaker, productivity consultant, and self-described appaholic. I also love helping entrepreneurs and small business owners polish their workflows and leverage technology in their companies so that they can get more accomplished every day.
I won’t bore you with all the details, but you may have seen my writing and ramblings around the interwebs on local DC area network news broadcasts, The Washington Post, USA Today, Moneyish.com, FoxBusiness.com, TechRepublic.com, Marketplace.org, FastCompany.com, and Staples.com to name a few. I’ve also had partnerships with some amazing brands like Rubbermaid, Neat Company (and was featured on this TV ad for Neat), Bynder, and Xfinity Mobile.
It’s been my good fortune to be resourceful, which may be due to an insatiable technology obsession curiosity. This has been useful to me in my own business and I love sharing great treasures with others. In fact, I’m known to get giddy like a schoolgirl. Nothing is better than helping someone overcome a specific productivity frustration, find a unique product, service, or app, and watching the “I get it!” lightbulb go on.
Which leads me to you. How can I help?
Master the power of technology with Deb
D. Allison Lee has been a productivity consultant for over 12 years. She’s been working with countless small business owners to help them refine their workflows, focus at the right things at the right time, and become more efficient.
Deb Lee recently presented at a brunch for a DC-area women’s networking group that I co-founded. Our group,The Grapevine, includes women from a variety of organizations in the antitrust and consumer protection fields, including government enforcers, attorneys in private practice, economists, and women in academia. Deb developed a program on time-management issues that appealed across this broad spectrum of attendees. Her presentation was polished, professional, and engaging. Since this presentation, several attendees have contacted me to compliment our group, crediting Deb’s presentation to the success of the overall event.
Deb gave an excellent, informative and fun workshop on Apps for Small Businesses to our Philadelphia Chapter. Those who are tech novices and those who are pretty tech savvy themselves all had something to learn. We can tell she did her homework on the rapidly changing apps that she was recommending, and she geared the presentation to our needs. Deb Lee’s knowledge of the subject matter and her delivery style make her a highly qualified teacher for anyone who wants to use technology to gain efficiency in their business. Before the day was over, our members were asking, “When can we have her back?”
Thoroughly enjoyed your presentation on business blogging. I knew I had a lot to learn (don’t know what you don’t know, right?) and your talk was just what I needed. Not only are you engaging and interesting, but you provided so much relevant information without crossing the line to being overwhelming. Given the topic, that’s quite a feat! With a wide range of expertise in the room, you found a way to speak directly to each of us …in language we could all understand.
Before beginning our work together, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was hopeful that you could help, but unsure how you would be able to. Now that we’ve completed our tenure, I am happy and grateful for the skills I learned from you. My advice to anyone who is considering working with you is very simple: Start immediately. Do not delay.
Deb helped me visualize and articulate my productivity goals. She began by learning how I work so she could recommend adjustments that were ambitious, but also achievable for me to maintain. Deb encouraged me to try several tools and apps that I’ve long had available, but was not taking full advantage of. In every session, I got practical tips on how to better organize my work products and procedures, and felt accountable to demonstrate progress since the session before. Since the end of our sessions, I am more in command of my portfolio and my possibilities. I can devote more time to the creative and innovative aspects of my research and writing. Thanks, Deb!
Deb’s combination of compassion and tactical strategies proved to be a game-changer in my productivity. She knows her stuff, but more importantly, she truly cares.
