CALMING THE HIVE


Teaching is the most important part of my job.  I've been told I am "highly sensitive" and that I am "spacially gifted."  Both attributes come in handy as we work side-by-side on your organizing projects.
 
We will taking one step at a time - always making forward progress.  Sure, we may have moments of backsliding, but have faith in the process and it will produce results.

Our starting point is to address the "stuff" (see my home page....), in whatever form it presents itself.  You will hear me refer to "visual chaos" - physical stuff or "delayed decisions" - mental stuff.  And, there is a full spectrum of stuff between the two that we also will address during our work sessions.

Residental services:  You name it, I can organize it.  Always game for a challenge, yet I'll be honest with you if I'm not able to help you with the project and will refer you to a qualified organizer.  *Please note that I no longer work with clients who fall into Levels 2-5 on the Clutter Hoarding Scale.

Corporate/Coaching services:  Limited to women-owned businesses and small businesses (we can define small together during our initial contact). 

For all clients, I provide on-site work and/or Walk & Talk coaching through my company The Walk Coach.

The bee knows everything that enters her hive must have a purpose or it doesn’t belong.   She knows that less is ultimately more, because the fewer belongings she has, the less she is responsible for taking care of, maintaining, storing, repairing, replacing.....you get the idea.

A simple life is a good life and an organized life is a great life.

BEE SIMPLE

I have become enamored with the minimalism movement, and faithfully follow many of the pioneers in this area.  While I am working on my own journey in this direction, I by no means will require the same of you, but in the interest of full disclosure, I feel there is a lot of merit in living with less.

If you are interested in learning more about minimalism, here are links to my favorite sources of information:

Be More With Less - Courtney Carver

Becoming Minimalist - Joshua Becker

Slow Your Home - Brooke & Ben McAlery

Zen Habits - Leo Babauta

The Minimalists -  Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus
