Inspiration and motivation to reduce the feelings of overwhelm that show up in the home, life or office. Audiences get excited and take personal action to have more calm in their own life.
Watching Elisa speak is like watching a superhero of chaos (in a good way). She helps the audience own their baggage, sort through it, and release what is no longer serving them. She makes order, structure, and systems seem fun, even for someone like me who likes being carefree! She helps you become carefree within being organized. If you have the opportunity to hire her to speak, buy her book, and become a smooth organizer, DO IT!

Thanks, Erin, I love it when people 'get' what I do and don't feel bullied or like the have to become a perfectionist.

What to Expect
Audiences have felt inspired to act almost immediately to "right-size" and release a lot of stuff that has accumulated over the years. One group of women got so excited that nearing the end of my talk a woman stood up and shouted she had a barn. The other women 'knew' that meant they could take all their stuff to her barn and they did. All the proceeds from the sales went to the women's ministry at their church and it was a movement of amazement! Whether is is a group effort or individually, audiences learn why they need to right-size for a variety of reasons, then they learn how as I teach them the steps. Some don't want to leave all their 'stuff' to their children to take care of after their last breath. Others finally see how they can calmly downsize and move to a retirement community and others want to have less stuff in general and more band width for enjoying life. One woman downsized to live in a 750 sq ft apt in the city to have a broader life experience.
As the oldest of six girls raised in a dysfunctional family I tried to hide the fact that I liked order due to the teasing. Plus I had no self-worth being conceived out of wedlock and blamed for it all my life. Oh, yes, my father molested me along with other sisters. At 38 I realized my draw to liking order was a gift and I treasured it. Near the end of a two-year virus that kept me in bed, I felt compelled to help people find order. I thought that sounded like fun but it was weird. I had never heard of a professional organizer. I started writing a book but had to shelve the idea after seeing my very first client. I had to ask her if she saved used band aids. She said she was, "No, I'm not that bad!" That was before any of us knew about hoarding. I knew someone like her were would not read a book from me. After counseling and finding my voice and sense of self-worth, I felt compelled to finish the book, Calming Your Chaos. Done, and now I am on a mission to help people find that calm in their life, home and workplace.
