Organized for Life….and beyond?!
My business has been changing, and I’ve been updating my website accordingly. It’s a work in progress, as are we all, but I invite you to take a look and let me know what you think. Is it more clear what I have to offer these days and how it all fits together? Perhaps you’ve changed too, and my current offerings will appeal to you in a different way than they did before? Let me tell you more…
Organize Your Life — Less clutter. More life.
The first decade of my business was all about helping people rise above their clutter and find the freedom of getting organized for life. You can read more in Org4life: The First 10 Years. Don’t worry, I still do that! But I’m taking less of a hands-on approach these days, and more of a virtual consulting approach. There are many advantages to a shorter, less expensive, virtual session, as described in Why Virtual Organizing?
My professional association, NAPO, has been by my side since Day 1. In return, I have been recognized for my service and dedication to NAPO with the 2017 NAPO President’s Award! (An experience which I describe in Networking for Introverts.)
Tell Your Story — Less clutter. Better story.
When I also joined APPO, a couple of years ago, and became a certified photo organizer, I noticed that one of their target markets is genealogists. This reignited a passion that had been on the back burner since being laid off from my corporate career, starting my business, and moving to Albuquerque (as told in Born to Organize). I have many years of both old-school and internet genealogy research experience, so I started doing research for others and found it to be very rewarding.
I help clients organize their family history files, photos, and memorabilia, and teach them how to get started if they want to do their own research. I started telling more of my own story (Hazel’s Stories), and those of my mother and father. How much memorabilia do you have? How many photos? Is it time to tell your story?
Create Your Legacy — Less clutter. More peace.
The older I get, the more I think about my own legacy. How will people remember me? Am I leaving behind a ton of stuff nobody will know what to do with? Is it all equally meaningful? (Hint: No, it is not.) And, who will check my email when I die? (Talking about death won’t kill you, LOL!) I have been writing about such things for a few years now and have incorporated them more prominently in my service offerings. I enjoy helping my clients create peace of mind for themselves, and their loved ones, by making decisions now so their families don’t have to later.
This new category also lends a new meaning to the egret-taking-flight logo, which represents freedom from clutter, but is often mistaken for a stork. You’ll understand the new meaning when you listen to this old gospel song, I’ll Fly Away (Alison Krauss version).
If you look at my new website home page you will see my Services, Products, and Resources divided into the same categories as this blog post: Organize Your Life, Tell Your Story, and Create Your Legacy. Make sense? As I mentioned, it’s a work in progress, and I don’t always announce when I make changes. One of my new service offerings is a Go with the Flow! package that combines my Clutter Flow Chart e-workbook with a number of virtual coaching sessions.
Go ahead, take a look. And check back often!
