Episode 29: Preparing for and Handling A Major Health Crisis

Megan Spears, CPO

On this episode, we are joined by Megan Spears, CPO of Disorder2Order and she is here to talk about the somewhat difficult topic of staying organized during a major health crisis.

This is such an important discussion and Megan has a wealth of professional expertise and personal experience to share with us. Her husband was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 and the period that followed his diagnosis was challenging even for Megan, a professional organizer. She walks us through this time, the lessons she learned and how we can be better prepared, both professionally and individually, for circumstances such as these.

We discuss the resources she recommends and just how valuable some basic preparation can be when an unplanned crisis hits. She takes us through her processes and how she learned some new priorities during the last few years. We also talk about decision making and support systems, two things Megan understands the importance of having. For all this and a whole lot more, be sure to join us!
