If you haven't started your portfolio yet, you aren't the only one! I was audited several years ago and had the best of intentions. I planned to start my portfolio in January and work at it a few hours every month. Fast forward, and what did I actually do? I started my portfolio in November and worked like a crazy person to get it done before Christmas. I couldn't get it done before Christmas and worked on it until about December 29th...AND SEND.
Why couldn't I get it done before Christmas? Well, because I love Christmas! I didn't want to miss out on the christmas shopping, christmas decorating, christmas baking and family gatherings! Who wants to be stuck at home, papers everywhere, working on their portfolio? Not me!
So, it's November now and I want to show you how you can get your portfolio done in ONE MONTH. Yes, even if you haven't started. It's entirely possible with the new SMILE portal system. We had to write the typical day out by hand when I was audited, now you don't have to. This will literally save you about 5 hours.
I do offer a Portfolio Workshop which is a full course valid for one year. I upload two new webinars each month to add to your continuing education, provide goal examples and learning activity examples each month, guide you on chapters to read in your textbook, and offer teaching videos! Also included is access into a private facebook group to network with others AND a free portfolio review by me at the end.
In the meantime, get started with these ideas to get that portfolio of yours done in one month:
1. Want free continuing education?
Go to www.vivalearning.com and browse the webinars they offer. All free and you can watch them anytime. You can take a test afterwards as proof that you watched the webinar. You can take as many as you want for your hours.
2. Open a textbook
Open any textbook you have and read a chapter! Make detailed notes on that chapter and furthermore browse online for that topic and research some more. Reading and browsing online will be at least two hours of continuing education. Free again!
3. Set aside time
The key to getting all this done in a month is to set aside time. Whether it be 5 hours every Saturday for a month, or one hour everyday until it's done, set aside time that works for you.
Those three things are easy to get started right now! If you need some help you can reach out to me or check out Dentalelle's Portfolio Workshop where I guide you every step of the way!
