How do I schedule my calls?
Scheduling with me should be easy.
Please aim to schedule your appointments up to three business days in advance. If you make a last-minute appointment, we regrettably might have to cancel it due to other pending deadlines.
To schedule your calls please visit Jeffrey’s link at https://www.timetrade.com/book/9CJGK or use your respective Consultant’s link.
If you are working with another TW Consultant, please use that consultant’s TimeTrade schedule link.

Typical Schedule for Jeffrey’s Client Meetings:
- Tuesdays, 11 am-4:00 pm EST
- Wednesdays, 11 am-4:00 pm EST
- Thursdays, 11 am-4:00 pm EST
Please make every effort to keep a scheduled meeting. Should you need to change or cancel a meeting time, aim to inform your consultant as soon as possible – at least up to three business days (M-F) in advance. If your cancellation or postponement is within three days, we regret that these meetings cannot be “made up.”
NOTE TO PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS:
If you are working with a consultant as part of our ArtMark™ or Your Captivating Book Programs, please refer to the information specific to that information and please do not use the link above. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us via info@TrackingWonder.com. We’ll help you out.
Can I work with my consultant on a recurring basis after my initial package expires?
Yes. Toward the end of your first or any package, you and your consultant will inquire about what makes sense for you to move forward.
What if I have technical questions/problems or need help with scheduling?
Erin is Tracking Wonder’s Executive Assistant and Operations Manager. Erin handles our systems, scheduling, and other operations. She also can answer most technical questions. Feel free to ask her such questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do we share files and collaborate?
BASECAMP: Basecamp’s a tool we use at Tracking Wonder to keep our projects organized and on track. We’ll be using it to manage all the work we’re doing for you!
From time to time we’ll send you messages, questions, or project updates. You’ll get everything via email. All you need to do is read them and reply to the emails as needed.
Your replies will go right back into Basecamp, which helps our team stay on the same page and make sure everything keeps running smoothly for you.
How will meetings and correspondence work?
Your contracted engagement typically extends for specified period of time. Typically, you have a certain number of meetings with your consultant and support outside of meetings within that period. Please refer to your contract details for specifics. After your contract period has expired, you are welcome to continue working with your consultant under a new contract.
- Our best work is helping you and others create the captivating and elevating “stuff” that matters.
- We base our methods for email response – how and when – on what will let us do more of our best work during any given work day.
- We sift “response-needed” email twice a day into an Action folder. We respond to easy queries usually within 2-3 business days.
- To maximize your time on email, we aim for responses to be as germane, concise, and useful as possible. We typically do not engage in extended, lengthy conversational email correspondence best reserved for live meetings.
- We usually respond to “deep” requests that require thinking & strategy within five to seven business days – urgencies withstanding. Sometimes, we will “bundle” your requests if you’re on a creative roll and making frequent requests. If you send us updates and expect/need a response, then please specify the query. Otherwise, you may not receive a response to a random update without a request for a specific response.
If you would like your consultant to review several pages or designs related to your project in advance of a meeting, please aim to upload those files to Dropbox a minimum of three business days before the meeting. That will allow your consultant sufficient time to review your material thoughtfully and perhaps even send you annotations and a letter with observations before the meeting. Note: A review is not an edit.
What are the directions to the studio for an in-person meeting?
- From 28 headed toward Kingston, take 209 South toward Ellenville.
- Travel approx. 15 miles through the village of Stone Ridge and into the hamlet of Accord.
- On 209, just past the Sunoco Accord Kwik Mart, turn right onto WHITFIELD RD.
- Travel approx. 1.8 miles and be sure to go past Lower Whitfield Rd until you are sure you have reached UPPER WHITFIELD RD.
- Turn LEFT onto UPPER WHITFIELD RD. (look at sign carefully).
- Keep LEFT on Upper Whitfield for approx. 2 miles.
- Past a straightway with meadows on both sides of road, as the road curves sharply to the right, we are located on the left-hand side of the road at 156 UPPER WHITFIELD RD. ACCORD, NY 12404. Yellow farmhouse with white trim.
- Please pull completely into the driveway.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule my meeting?
We ask that you cancel or postpone appointments up to three business days in advance, allowing other clients the opportunity to take the spot you’ve reserved. Otherwise, the client is asked to pay for the time reserved. You can find the link to cancel or reschedule your meeting at the bottom of your original Timetrade confirmation email for the meeting you’d like to cancel or reschedule.
