Kamille Sommer is a professional organizer in Denmark. I know there are many women listening to the podcast who are wondering, “could I ever start an organizing business where I live? No one here has ever HEARD of this industry.” Today you’ll learn what she has done and continues to do as a trailblazer in her country to educate the population and get clients. She’s also found ways to expand her business online, all while keeping her part-time day job. I hope you’re ready to take notes, because there’s a lot to be inspired by in this episode.
Maybe is it just a stereotype, but most professional organizers are list-makers. I know that organizers are also super tough on themselves, so i think it’s unfortunate that we have this long list of all of our shortcomings that we are carrying around in our heads all of the time. I think it’s important to counteract that with some positivity. So, for today’s podcast, I’m sharing 3 lists to make that will increase your confidence.
I am super excited for this interview with Moriah Riona. She is an award-winning graphic designer and brand strategist who owns a full-service branding and marketing studio for creative female entrepreneurs. Moriah’s passion is helping other women succeed in business by giving them the tools they need show up confidently, attract the right clients, get paid what they’re worth, and build brands and lives that they love.
Today, I am chatting with Di Ter Avest, owner of Di Is Organized in Baltimore, MD. While I have heard many aspiring organizers say that they want to wait to start their business until their young children are in school, Di Ter Avest joins me today to share how she manages her organizing business with two little ones. With the right support system, healthy boundaries and some pre-planning, balancing your priorities may not be as hard as you think.
Today, I am joined by Ashley Grubbs and Julie McCoy, who are business partners behind Mind Your Mess in Houston, TX. I hope you’ll listen to their entire story. If you’re a solo organizer who has ever been interested in bringing on a business partner, you will definitely want to listen to how these two met, how their partnership was formed, and where Mind Your Mess is headed today. Their sky’s-the-limit mindset and their friendship are truly inspiring.
Something I often tell my students is that there is no growth in your comfort zone. Today, I am reaching out of my comfort zone again to share some of my personal highs and lows as an entrepreneur. From my journey as a professional organizer to the growth that I have seen through Pro Organizer Studio, I truly feel that this online community has watched me grow up in many ways. Here are some lessons to share with you, that I have learned throughout my 5 years in business.
Today, I am joined again by the incredible Sam Pregenzer of Simply Organized. Sam has found much success in the organizing world, but it doesn’t come without a cost. Today she opened up about the growing pains of entrepreneurial life. Sometimes balancing multiple business projects and multiple kids’ schedules is just not that pretty, and finding time for self-care becomes a bit of a chess game. Clearly she is finding a way to make it work. I hope this candid conversation encourages you today.
Today I am super excited to be chatting with Matlin Pessarra of Minimized Professional Organizers in Charlotte, NC. In the two short years that Matlin has been in business, she has grown a massive Instagram following and she has worked with a number of local influencers and celebrities in Charlotte. I have invited her onto the podcast today to talk all about her experiences with business collaborations.

So, if you’re interested in creating more for your organizing business online, you’re really going to love this episode!
