How The Organized You began.
I remember the night it all came to happen...
I had sold a previous business that I owned in the technology space and decided to retire. I spent 11 months as the busiest retired person ever. My daughters were still in high school and there was plenty to do. Though something was missing for me. Even though I was busy, I felt like I wasn’t doing anything.
So back to that night...
My husband and I had dropped our daughter off at a birthday party and we stayed out for dinner. All of a sudden before the waiter arrived, I started to choke up. I’m not a crier so this was a weird feeling. I’ll never forget my husband’s look of shock when he looked at me as the waiter came over and asked if we’d like a drink. My husband immediately told him we needed a minute and he asked me what was going on. He was surprised when I said I wasn’t happy about being retired. He then asked what would you like to do? And I answered, I want to be a Professional Organizer.
It was all hands on deck. The name was first. I have my daughter to thank for that. And then came my website. Then I made the greatest decision for my business: I became a Contained Home Partner. The Container Store’s Contained Home division was looking for partners. I inquired, interviewed, and they accepted me. My business had taken off. I had regular clients and a steady stream of new opportunities.
I am now in my 5th year in business and am so pleased with the way things have worked out. I have some great co-workers, amazingly wonderful clients who have become friends, and every single time I end my day, I take great pleasure knowing I have just made someone’s life a little better.
