First things first – what would your walk-on-stage music be?

One song doesn’t come to mind, but definitely something from the 80s and probably from a British band!

When did you start your business, and why did you create it?

I started my business earlier this year. I wanted more balance and flexibility in life. The idea of helping people in a way I find meaningful was important as well. Like many others during the pandemic, I had enough time to self-reflect and figure out what needed to stay and what needed to change in my life to make sure I was 1) being authentic to myself and my values and 2) to feel I was living out my purpose.

Tell us about your business and what makes you unique in your field.

I consider myself someone who specializes in practical stress management. I’m an organizing + productivity consultant and a private yoga teacher. I help professionals (mostly women) manage some of their day-to-day stressors by setting up systems in their home or work environment. Sometimes that means helping a solopreneur set up processes and procedures for their business, helping them set up systems or automations to better manage time or information, or it might mean helping someone declutter their home and set up an organizing system so they don’t feel like they live in chaos and clutter and they can easily find what they need when they need it. I really cover almost anything you can think of with being organized and productive in a home or work environment! Our life isn’t easily compartmentalized and issues in one area of life tend to bleed into the other areas. Which is why I take a holistic approach. Part of my messaging is that I help busy professionals with their mind, body, home, or business.

What do you feel makes your audience special?

Any time someone recognizes they need assistance in achieving their goals and are willing to seek out that support always gives me the warm fuzzies! We live in a society where we are rewarded for independence, overworking, always having the answers, but in reality, we all need help along the way. There should be no shame in seeking the assistance you need. I’ve always tried my best to support people who come to me knowing they need help and are committed to the process. I feel my audience understands that we don’t need to go it alone.

If you could magically give all of your community members one thing in this world, what would it be, and why? 

The confidence to know they are more capable than they realize at times. We all experience self-doubt or imposter syndrome at times and I wish everyone could be free of those worries. It really traps us in situations we shouldn’t be in and prevents us from spreading our talents to make the world a better place and living authentically and freely. We are all uniquely gifted and we have to trust ourselves more. Trust that we won’t always have the answers, but we know how to find them. Trust that difficulties will come, but we can overcome them. Trust that we are enough.

Has anything surprised you about starting a business?

Thankfully no! I have two business degrees and was fortunate enough to have several family members who own or have owned their own business so I felt that I understood what I was taking on.

Did you create your own website or hire it out? Do you use WordPress?

I created my own.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about starting their own business?

Have a plan, but also be flexible. We are constantly changing as people and so is the world around us. Patience will be key! Show up consistently, do the work, and remember why you started on this journey in the first place. Wanting to make a lot of money or being your own boss are often not enough motivation to keep you going through the inevitable difficulties that will pop up. Find a good networking group or two and surround yourself with people who support, encourage, and inspire you. Because of my own professional background, one thing I’ve noticed was a lot of business owners don’t understand financials/accounting. It’s so key that you get a good enough hold on this that even if you outsource it to a CPA/bookkeeper you understand how to read reports, understand when something is off, or how to make business decisions with the information. Constantly be open to learning and growing.

If you could go back in time and do something differently, what would you do and why? 

Maybe this seems a bit cliche, but I wouldn’t do anything differently. I believe that everything in life teaches me a lesson. Sometimes those lessons are hard, sometimes they are fun or easy, but every experience is a learning experience. And, sometimes no matter how much someone tries to help us avoid difficulties, usually learning through experience is the way that solidifies the lesson!

Do you have an email list? If so, did you start it when you launched? 

Yes. No, it’s a pretty recent addition.

How do you promote your site?

Instagram, free webinars or presentations, networking

Who are your favorite bloggers or podcasts right now? Or what is an influential book that you’ve read lately? 

I love Atomic Habits by James Clear. The book is an easy read and very easy to implement into your personal and/or professional life. He doesn’t totally geek out on the neuroscience behind it but incorporates enough to help you understand how your brain works.

Is there anything else you’d like to share?

I’ll have two new offerings in January in honor of Get Organized and Be Productive Month. One is for home organizing and the other is a productivity group for small business owners. Registration for both opens on October 15th on my website.
