In 1995, shortly after I started my business, I was with a group of friends when someone we hadn't seen for a while joined us and asked me, "What are you doing these days?" Before I could answer, another friend piped up with great enthusiasm and said, "She's doing what God created her to do since before time began!" I was unaware then, but that friend and another had been praying for two years that I would do something with organizing! Isn't that often the way? Other people see our gifts before we do. Ironically, none of us had ever even heard of a professional organizer!
For me, becoming a professional organizer seemed to happen overnight.
As a Mary Kay Sales Director living in the Boston area, I was fortunate to work with some amazing women. One day a friend of mine, Gloria, looked at me and said, "You know, I watch you. You move differently, you act differently, you think differently. You get more done in less time than anyone I know. You're organized. You should teach other people how to be organized!" Initially, I was skeptical. However, Gloria helped me see that my approach to organizing was more than just common sense. She convinced me that my thought process was unique and just what entrepreneurs needed. As I began to work with more direct-sales leaders, word spread. One happily-organized leader told another and before I knew it, I had organized over 400 offices nationwide for every level of sales, from people just starting up to the very top.
The great demand for working with people one-on-one and the growing list of requests for training larger groups caused me to develop workshops for both leaders and consultants. Word of the success of these spread, and I have been honored to hold workshops not only across the U.S. but in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland and Puerto Rico as well.
During this time it became crystal clear to me that teaching people to think differently and being able to create order is my passion and my calling.
To date I have worked with people in over 25 different industries. I believe my work with professionals in Fortune 100 companies such as American Express, AT&T, and Colgate Palmolive has given me great insight into the day-to-day workings of successful executives. This experience plus 13 years in corporate investments and finance, 12 years as an entrepreneur, and an MBA, have all contributed to my unique approach to organizing.
When you think of someone who could benefit from my work, please pass along my name, phone number and e-mail address. Order carries with it peace. What a lovely gift to give!
