And welcome to LB Living Better.  It’s always convenient when your initials are the same as your philosophy of life!   I am LB, Lisa Bates and this is LB Living Better.  Of course the definition of living better is entirely up to you, some days are profound and others well, that’s why we have tomorrows.  

Whether you need a workshop for your organization, organizing services for your home/ office or you would just like to follow tips and ideas on my blogs (or in my soon to be published book), my objective is always the same….helping you live better!
