about me

Welcome to Suzy Oakley Solutions, a place where I hope you’ll feel at home — comfy enough to share who YOU are and let me know what you’d like to see on this site.

This is where I offer solutions to help you save time and focus on what matters most. How do I do that? By sharing my productivity tips and tools and teaching you how to put them in place.

Don’t worry – I’ll be here for you every step of the way. I’m geeky, but I understand that not everyone shares my love of technology and apps. Understand, though, that we’re living in the third millennium, and you can’t avoid all technology — unless you want to pack up your knapsack and go live on a mountain.

You should know upfront: Jesus is the foundation of everything I do, so you’ll hear about my faith in these pages; that’s just how I roll. I won’t shove it in your face, but you’ll know where I stand.

On this site, you’ll find things relating to organizing and productivity, including a few posts I’ve borrowed and updated from my two older blogs. That will include printables, tutorials and nerdy-techy stuff. (Sorry. I can’t help myself.)

My brain never shuts off, so I go to sleep thinking of ways to get you to love keyboard shortcuts as much as I do, or not-so-boring incentives for you to tackle your junk mail before you lose a small child or pet under one of the piles.

I love creating functional yet fun graphics and charts, so please tell me what would help you sleep better. (Hey, at least one of us needs to get some sleep. 🥱💤💤)

When I say I can’t help myself, I really mean it. I have this built-in need for finding faster, more efficient ways to do everything. (It’s a blessing and a curse.) As long as I don’t drive you crazy, my compulsion will help you get more done in ways that are faster and — I hope — more fun.

So please let me know what you need.

Do you want calendars? Menu planners? Habit trackers? I can do that. I’m a certified budget coach, so I may try to sneak in a budget (but if the word “budget” gives you hives, we’ll think of a more fun name for it 😊 ).

I’m working on a digital planner, so stay tuned for that. (Just writing that sentence makes me giddy with anticipation!)

If you’re a business owner …

If you need a virtual assistant who has office-admin and tech skills or an editor and writer with more than 30 years of experience (and a journalism degree), please fill out this simple form to contact me or use the more detailed form on this page. Feel free to check out my pages specific to VA work or editing, proofreading and ghostwriting. If you want to read my editing resume or find out “What makes a good editor,” visit this page. I’m also available for Pinterest management and other social media management, book formatting and other fun stuff, so we can talk about that if you need some help. I’m still working on my portfolio, but I hope to have it up soon.

To sign up for weekly emails from me and receive my free PDF bundle, click here. The bundle contains weekly and monthly calendar pages, plus a little inspiration from five organizing experts I’ve learned from over the years. 

I hope you’ll enjoy this site, have a ton of FUN and let me know what you’d like to see more of. Seriously, I’d like to know what you want here. This site is for YOU. 😘

Now, grab a glass of iced tea or a warm mug of something that puts a smile on your face, and dig in. Thank you for visiting!

Bruce and Suzy Oakley

That fellow nerd in the pic is my hubby, Bruce. He’s a running coach and the finisher of leftovers at our house. We met as copy editors at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and now we live in Batesville, Ark.

I also write books, and you can find info on that at my other website, AuthorSuzyOakley.com. If you’re a book lover, you can sign up for news, reviews and interviews about books and authors there.
