Meet Dara – Time Management Strategist

About Dara FairmanDara Fairman

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by!!  It is so great to meet you!!  Let me take a second to introduce myself!


My name is Dara.  I have always been known for my focused productivity and time management.  At the age of 18, while a marketing student at Hampton University, I made the decision to obtain my MBA from a top tier business school by the age of 24.  As I matriculated over the next 4 years, I remained focused on gaining the academic and leadership achievements necessary to make this happen.


Post earning my MBA from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business (by age 24), I enjoyed a very successful career in corporate marketing.  I led numerous fruitful brand management, retail marketing, regional marketing and foodservice category management efforts for Fortune 200 companies.


I later began a career break while my children were younger.  I relaunched my career as a Time Management Strategist once both kids started school.

Personalized Client Services

Dara helped me to distinguish my role as a facilitator of conference calls in my day job versus my entrepreneurial endeavors.  The tips she gave me regarding running effective meetings will come in handy the next time I have a meeting at work, and also when I meet with new or current clients.  Thank you!

Let's Get Organized! Tips Workshop

"I received quite a few positive responses after you left our meeting. Everyone certainly enjoyed meeting you and getting the inspiration to get a little more organized in our own homes. I especially liked how you gave personal examples of how you implemented your tips in your home with your family. It also inspired a lot of the ladies there to gather together some items for our annual raffle in March which they promptly delivered to my home in the last few days. A BIG thank you for that as I had received a meager response up to now.
We would certainly like to have you come back to see us again in the future."
