I have to confess, I have a client I think is brilliant! She has such a creative mind about organization and can cut, saw, sew, tweak and measure and make something work that I would have never even thought possible. For example, she totally transformed her pantry, using the Elfa System from the Container Store. Now it wasn’t as easy as buying some pieces from the Elfa system and just sticking it in the pantry and being done. Nope, she had to tweak the system to fit into her space, cut some stuff down, order some extra pieces and install it herself!!! She did a great job and I have told her I want some of her brain to magically appear in my brain.
My job with my client, as an organizer and life coach, is to encourage her, keep her on track, hold her accountable and give direction. She is so motivated to get her whole house organized and I know, without a doubt, that she can do it and will do some things that I would have never thought for her to do. I love that about my job. I am never done learning……new organizational products, new techniques, outside the box thinking. I can learn from magazines, websites, friends and yes, even clients that appear unorganized but who truly have organized minds. You see, I may be the expert but every client has great gifts and talents that they can share with me and together we can accomplish a lot!!!!
Due to confidentiality, I don’t normally post before and after pictures, but she sent me the pictures and allowed me to share them with everyone. Enjoy, get motivated and realize that you too can achieve an organized life….a little step at a time!
