I am one of you... I promise
It started with the husband asking, "So what do you do?" An innocent enough question, to which I responded, "I own my own professional organization company that helps moms and families get more organized." An honest and innocent answer.
The interesting part came in the wife's quick response by saying, "Well so much for ever inviting you over for dinner." If her tone had contained even a tint of humor it might not have stung as badly; however, she was quite sincere in here comment. So I got to thinking... does the term Professional Organizer really put people off? I may enjoy filing and color coding and, yes, my label maker may be my favorite household item... but in reality I am not all that different from you.
Need more convincing??? Here are 5 facts about me that should convince you:
I share this with you for a few very important reasons... I want you to know that I am a mom too. I am battling a crazy schedule with busy kids too. I have housework that I avoid too. But it is also for these reasons that I am such a huge believer in being an organized mom... it is because we live crazy lives in crammed homes... that is essential to be more organized if we are not we get overwhelmed and stressed out.
I do not strive for perfection in my home so how could I ever ask it of a client??? I only seek to find solutions that are practical and family friendly my home is full of such ideas and I hope to help fill yours with them as well. The mission statement of our company is to save moms time, money, and energy by helping them get organized and find real world solutions to combat clutter and chaos...
