You hire a personal trainer for your fitness, a CPA to get your taxes in order, a wedding planner for that special event. But what about your life? Your creative projects? Your plans that don’t manage to get your full attention? If you need to reinvigorate your creativity and activate your stalled projects (or start new ones), Workflow Architects will give you the tools you need made specifically for your strengths. We understand what it’s like to be inundated with so many ‘to dos’ that you’re left not knowing where to begin — and so choose nothing. We’ve successfully designed clear and doable methods to guide our clients through a thoughtful evaluation and prioritization of their goals and tasks, complete with the tools necessary to support them.
BLUEPRINT YOUR LIFE
“Whenever a building is constructed, you usually have an architect who draws a blueprint, and that blueprint serves as the pattern, as the guide, and a building is not well erected without a good, solid blueprint.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. in “What Is Your Life’s Blueprint?” speech, 1967.
First and foremost, it’s critical to get an understanding of your top priorities. We’ll identify and define goals and the scale of your project, exploring the known and unknowns — what do you have that will serve in the project, what will you need? At this stage we will also evaluate how do you like to learn and work (more visual, prefer pad and pen?) and any challenges or obstacles that can keep you from accomplishing your goal.
WORK TOGETHER TO SKETCH OUT THE FRAMEWORK FOR YOUR INDIVIDUALIZED PLAN
Strategic thinking completed; we’ll turn our attention to building the foundation. Taking what we learned during the Diagram stage we would design a custom workflow to get you where you need to be. Is your project’s objective deadline driven? Perhaps you are building your membership or a financial target? The plan we construct will be customized to what is most important to you with tools that fit your preferred paths to organization. At this stage you have a working model of the plan to integrate into your work.
REFINE THE PLAN TOGETHER ONCE YOU'VE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO TEST IT
Keeping customization at the heart of our collaboration, we will determine the timing of our check-ins on your use of the Floor Plan to best serve your work. At this stage new ideas may arise or ambitious aspects of the project might need a second look and will need to be adapted. Flexibility is key to producing the best possible version of your project so we will make adjustments as needed based on your real-time usage of the tools we created together.
YOU HAVE THE TOOLS AND THE PATH FORWARD IS CLEAR
Your individualized workflow and strategic project plan, creative or business focused, is ready. You’ll have the tools we crafted for you at your disposal.
Working with Tari was literally the best money I spent all year (and I even bought a new iPhone!). She brought her signature clarity, steadiness, and empathy to all of our meetings, and I left feeling energized and, most importantly, activated to make real progress on my projects. If you’re a creative, entrepreneur, freelancer, or simply someone who needs help organizing your ideas and goals, then you need to Blueprint Your Life.

Tari is exceptional. She’s been working as a strategic planning consultant for my organization for the past six months and has already made a powerful and immediate impact. Tari’s ability to quickly identify—and understand—the operations and culture of a business, and then to devise ways to support its growth, are extraordinary. As a collaborator, she’s insightful, efficient and a pleasure. At this very important juncture in our company’s life, she’s my secret weapon. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Chris Wells | Artistic Director, The Secret City
When I was named the editor of Money.com, one of the most widely read personal finance websites, the first thing I did was call Tari. Over a two-month consulting engagement, Tari helped me develop a new editorial vision—and then translate that vision into detailed and efficient workflow processes. Within months, our small team tripled online traffic and brought on big new advertising partners. We couldn’t have done it without Tari’s patient and thoughtful systems engineering.
Adam Auriemma | Editorial Leader and Consultant
We had a massive project with an incredibly accelerated timeline and Tari jumped right in with both feet. An online summit with four distinct content offerings from 20 experts, bonuses content and discounts, email blasts, a marketing plan, and a full member-based website to host the event had to be mounted within five weeks and Tari gave us the roadmap to move forward with confidence.
