Book cover
Daphene “DJ” Jones is the founder of DJ Consultants Inc. and is an authority on managing time and information. She acquired her organizational skills largely through training herself to become a highly successful sales representative with MCI Corporation where she was awarded the highest award for a top producer – after one year on the job.
 
Prior to that, she spent 18 years with Southwestern and Southern Bell where she rose from an entry level position, as a service representative, to assistant manager of three service centers. It was during the course of carrying out these responsibilities that she learned the importance and value of “working smart vs. working hard.”

Working at Time Systems, Inc., a time management training company, she discovered her love of training and helping others manage their time and information. She has coached and trained a wide range of office personnel, ranging from top level executives to administrative assistants, enabling them to gain control over their workspace and become more productive.

In 1992, she ventured out with a passion and determination to make a difference in companies that struggled with information overload and started her own company, DJ Consultants, Inc. Since that beginning, Daphene has run a highly successful business focusing on providing efficiency coaching to improve personal productivity. Paying close attention to the market place, she realized that technology was changing the way people worked and adjusted the focus of her company to accommodate the new workplace. Validating that her concepts were on target, she easily applied the skills she had always believed in to the “electronic” office. Nothing changed…just the vehicle she was now using. It was easy to eliminate paper and utilized the computer to manage time and information.

An accomplished business owner, speaker and trainer, Daphene has addressed a variety of organizations. She has been featured on television and radio as an expert in helping people become more productive and efficient.

Ron Hall and Denver Moore spoke at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta on October 28, 2008 to raise money for Atlanta’s homeless population. That event changed her life. Seated at Daphene’s table was a well-known author, Ann Platz. She said there was more to tell about Deborah’s life before “Same Kind of Different as Me”. Her fraternal twin could certainly tell the story best. Deborah’s life and death made a tremendous impact on not only her but also her family.

Daphene’s story is about her journey with her Heavenly Father from her years of clinical depression, being paralyzed with fear and several suicide attempts, to a life of God’s mercy and grace extended to not only her but generations to come.

Daphene is known for her warmth, humor, and exuberance, and most importantly, for her passion for helping people make positive changes in their lives and jobs.

She and her husband John now live in Suwanee, GA with their precious border collie, Hanna.
