It is always a great time in organizing when there are things in pop culture and the public consciousness of what we do is high! The second season of the Home Edit show premiered on Netflix on April 1st, so today on the podcast, we are going to be talking about how you can take advantage of these things, how you can make sure that your business is ready for people to remind themselves that they need someone to come in to their home.
Jessica Litman is well known as The Organized Mama, and has built an organizing business that many of us dream of! She also has dreamed of writing a book since she was in 4th grade–and is making that dream come true in April with the publication of “Home Sweet Organized Home.” She is talking to us today about her path in organizing, including working one on one with clients both in-home and virtually, as well as a super successful online brand which started with a blog and has grown exponentially.
When Amy Mayorga became a mom, she realized that the STUFF of being a mother was overwhelming her.

Worth, Texas metropolitan area.
It’s another epsiode of “Jen and Melissa get together and record their conversation” for you!

Working with organizers each day–we know that sometimes what we tell ourselves, the story about our capabilities and what we are and who we are–sometimes can stop our progress in our businesses. Today we are bringing you a conversation about the book “Soundtracks” by Jon Acuff, which is all about what those messages in our head are, and more importantly–what are some concrete ways we can fix those messages.
In the last two years, organizers have discovered that there are lots of ways to help clients–and sometimes, even for a business that primarily helps people inside their house, organizers have been able to move to find an audience online successfully. Today we are bringing you an interview that Jen Kilbourne Obermeier did with Carly Tizzano of The Resolve Podcast, and it is FILLED with insight for organizers about finding your audience, and important mindset shifts.
Sarah Brent did something awesome with her organizing business, which is she saw that there was a need for something in the market, and she kept saying “someone should work on this!” and then realized someone was actually her. We love when someone takes a challenge and is like, wait, I’ll tackle that! So we wanted to have Sarah on to talk about what she’s doing…and how it can help all our pro organizing friends.
In a new series, we introduce you to an inspirational pro organizer from our community and tell you about their journey.
