Need a way of prompting staff to remember daily routines?

Need a way of training your staff with video as well as text information?

An incredibly flexible tool

That's the great thing about Podio, it's incredibly flexible - you can modify apps to meet your own needs and even build new ones with an easy to use drag and drop interface.

Podio has been a game changer for me, Isaac and his support team. 

I’ll tell you more about how it’s possible to get your hands on this in just a moment.

But before I do…

There are a few important things you need to know first.

Especially if you’re wondering if an online portal is really what your team needs right now. 


You are not going to be around forever.   Getting that vision for a good life for your family member out of your head and into a platform that is organised and accessible to those that need it is an important safeguard for your family member with a disability.  

If you don't have a vision for your family member's life, then someone else sure as heck will and you might not like it!


Giving that big folder to staff to read, is really unlikely to get them following your support practices.  
I spent months, trying to create a training manual that staff would be able to pick up and follow.

But I found that just reading the information wasn't cutting through and staff weren't following the good stuff that was in that manual.  Video, photos and sound were the key.  

A big fat folder isn't very helpful if it's sat on your desk and your family member is out and about with a support worker who can't remember how to support them if they become highly anxious. 

Then there is spilling coffee on it and pages getting ripped or lost.  Urgh.

Podio has allowed me to just film things and make quick and dirty training materials in minutes.

Since then I’ve been able to rinse and repeat this do-it-once-and-it’s-done approach…

I've been able to focus on supporting my son to move out of home and crank up his delivery business instead of getting stuck in the weeds of managing staff.

Having An Easy-To-Use Podio Portal That Grows With You Has A Direct Impact On Getting Stuff Done

But at the same time, figuring out the how can be so overwhelming

It can seem so difficult to know what you need…

Especially when you’re first starting out…

Not to mention how expensive it can be when you purchase a subscription to a tool and you can't figure out how to use it, you can't get your staff using it and it doesn't quite do things you way you want it to.

As good life builders, we should be spending our time focussing on building a good life for our family member, not bogged down in tech.


I'll do the most of the set up work, hand it back to you with the same set of great apps I've been using so you can apply it in your team FAST.

I’ve recorded training videos on how to set up your Podio account and once you've done that you'll be able to invite me to join your space where I will transfer over the apps I've built for you.   
I have some short and easy to follow training videos on how to use these apps too so you can hit the ground running

DISCLAIMER: Please understand my results are not typical, I’m not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). I have the benefit of working with a circle of support for more than 12 years. The average person who buys any “how to” information gets little to no results. Your results will vary and depend on many factors …including but not limited to your background, experience, and work ethic. All recruitment activities entail risk as well as massive and consistent effort and action. If you're not willing to accept that, please DO NOT register for this training.
