Alexis Haselberger

A productivity, time-management and efficiency expert (aka nerd).She spent the first 15+ years of her career managing operations and HR at several early-stage start-ups, where there was always way more to do than people to do it. But she also believes that work-life balance is essential for everyone, even though the definition may be different for everyone. As a result, she began to develop and implement productivity systems in the companies she worked for, and in her life, to ensure that goals were met, balls were not dropped, and that, most importantly, her and those around stayed sane.

When you don’t have a system, things can fall through the cracks.
