How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be a Productivity Strategist and Certified Professional Organizer?
In my previous professional life, I was a graphic, web, and interface designer, and while I really enjoyed being creative and liked design in general, my natural abilities kept pulling me in a different direction. At every job, I kept getting the same requests from co-workers: could I help them get organized so they could stay on top of their work and projects the same way I was able to? As it turned out, I very much liked helping people create systems and strategies for managing the projects and the pieces of their daily work lives – and it felt very natural for me to do so. So why not get paid for it?
Like many other entrepreneurs, I decided to leave the corporate world and strike out on my own. I began organizing professionally in 2002, and formally launched Custom Living Solutions in 2003. Within a few months, I had a roster of clients in both offices and homes, and was making a big difference in how they lived and worked.
Since then, I’ve worked with hundreds of clients in dozens of industries to help them clear clutter, manage their time, and develop systems for their businesses and their lives. The work we’ve done together has helped them generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional revenue, add clients to their businesses (and better serve the ones they already have), make the most of their space and their time, and focus on what’s important to them.
One of the great things about working with me and the team at Custom Living Solutions is that I built a business, from scratch, during two of the worst economic downturns in recent memory – the dot-com bust of the early 2000’s, and our most recent recession. Through it all, I’ve relied on systems and strategies in my own business to help keep my business on track, and have been successful regardless of the economy, and I’ve shown clients like you how to do the same. I know what it takes to run a truly successful, six-figure business (and the business of life), and am committed to helping clients learn how to do the same thing.
I’m deeply committed to the success of my fellow entrepreneurs. I believe entrepreneurship is the backbone of our economy, and as the myth of job security starts to unravel, I think more people will be striking out on their own, without any sort of job security. Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart, and I want to provide support for these brave folks. To that end, I teach regularly at the Small Business Administration, the Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, and speak to many small business and entrepreneurial groups.
One of the things I learned through my years of experience as a professional organizer and productivity strategist is how there needs to be a system for your systems – a way of tying everything together. When I work with clients, we have a systematic, 7-step process that we focus on to make sure that we cover your key areas of organizing and productivity. Without the right systems in place, it can feel like you’re just shuffling papers around – and that’s not my goal for our clients. I believe that getting organized for organizing’s sake is a waste of time and resources. Rather, I’ve found that when organizing is in service of a bigger goal – spending more time with your family, boosting revenue in your business, etc. – the actual organizing strategies are much more purposeful and meaningful to you.
I’m known as a bit of a geek, and one of my specialties is helping clients integrate technology into their lives and into their work. I get to help clients choose the right tech tools, get them set up, and then train them on how to best use them so they become helpful tools, rather than hair-pulling frustrations. What’s great is that I have a wide array of tech tools in my toolbag, and I personally try them all out – every single one – before I recommend them to clients. That way, I can confidently share tools and services that I believe in and use in my own business.
