What does the Professional Organizer purge…?

What does the Professional Organizer purge…?

Does she practice what she preaches, one in – one out…?

Yes, de-cluttering is an ongoing process, not a once off flurry of activity.  As purchases, gifts and projects are freely flowing in, they must be equally flowing out.  The operative word here is FREELY…

free·ly – ˈfrēlē/ – adverb

  • not under the control of another; as one wishes.
    • “I roamed freely”
  • without restriction or interference.
    • “air can freely circulate”
  • in copious or generous amounts.
    • “she gave freely from her abundance”

So what does a Professional Organizer purge…

Shoes and handbags I haven’t used and every time I try, I think I really don’t like these – so gone!

A couple of blouses that are super cute on the hanger, but not sure what I was thinking, they just are not me, so bye bye.

2 devotional books, since I have discovered the BIBLE app, I have hundreds of devotionals at my finger tips.

A herb pot I have decided won’t be big enough and a nearly full large bottle of hand sanitizer I bought for a hoard clear job but now just sits lonely in the garage – off to be useful elsewhere!

AND lastly…. Several recent presents I received that I just don’t like, aren’t me, things I am not going to use – BRUTAL but true. Of course I would not post pictures of such things.  I do not want to hurt anyone’s feeling.  I am also not going to take up space with things I do not want or like and that I know someone else can use 🙂

Where does it all go?  Some goes to the local mission, where I know things will be passed on freely for free.  Other stuff I sell on eBay or via our local Facebook Mama’s page.

I am also motivated by a goal, a monetary goal.  I have something in mind that I would like to purchase and it presently would be more valuable to me than all this STUFF combined.

Is it time for you to take a tour of your own home?  Gather the clutter, fill out a donation receipt or snap a few quick pics to post online for sale? Get a jump on the new year before its just another year buried in clutter, you can do it!

If you are in the Springs, we offer a free consultation to get you started or help you along the way.  If you are not  in the Springs, we offer online or phone consultations/sessions as well.

Reevaluating, refining & rediscovering

Well if you have been following MAS Movement LLC through the life of the business you know we have gone through some changes over the past year.  You might even notice that this is our first blog in over a year!  So for those of you who don’t know and might be interested, here is what happened….

Business was going extremely well at the beginning of 2014, I had 2 contractors working regularly for MAS Movement LLC.  We worked together to get jobs done more quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.   I wanted to promote these amazing ladies to begin seeing their own clients, working solo or with additional contract help as needed. But truth be told, I just didn’t know if there would be enough work for all of us.

That is when I went to coffee with another business provider and walked away with a new job!  I was looking for something new and different but still in the realm of organizing, something that would allow me to continue running MAS Movement LLC and raise up the wonderful new organizers I had trained to work with me over these past years.  Closet Factory (official website) offered me just what I was looking for.

It wasn’t the smoothest of transitions, a lot of business tending fell by the wayside, like blogs, facebook posts and classes.  But in return, I learned the new and exciting business of custom storage design, it was a natural addition to MAS Movement LLC.  And all the more exciting as several MAS Movement LLC clients have availed of the awesome storage Closet Factory (my facebook page) has to offer.

MAS Movement LLC has regained its footing as Myia Danley has stepped into the role of lead professional organizer.  She now has a handful of contractors that work with her on 90% of the leads that come into MAS Movement LLC via our website and facebook.

It has been a whirlwind of a year, sometimes uncomfortable but I think that is where growth lives.  I never imagined what was in store as I felt God tugging on my heart at the end of 2013.  Change was coming no matter how much I dug in my heels and here we are.

Thanks for hanging in there with us!

 

 

Happy New Year Kick Off Class

Well it was a whirl wind of a year end!  December brought new opportunities to grow my business, new clients and new products!  MAS Movement LLC finished its best year ever, doubling previous years’ gross revenues!!!

I have found it a bit daunting to pick up momentum in the new year 2013. But there is no time like the present to change perspective and start moving ahead.

My goal this year is to reach more people who hate clutter, people who are overwhelmed, people who want to take back their time and space, people who need a lot of help, people who need a little, people just considering doing something different.  Are any of these people you?

To kick off the new year, January 22 MAS Movement LLC will be hosting a FREE time management class at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Peregrine  off  Woodman Road.

( 7740 Deer Hill Grove  Colorado Springs, CO 80919 in the Woodman Room to the left of the entrance)
 

During the class we will discuss:

getting things done
overcoming procrastination
doing the right things
margin and goals

 

It’s a new year, time to step out on the right foot. Let the past lie behind, come for a fresh perspective and some renewing encouragement to make 2013 a pivotal year in your life.

Please RSVP to help us be prepared. 719 352 1590 or jessica@masmovement.com

Just in time for the holidays!

2 Shopportunites! Is one right for you this season?

 

So many times, I have discussed with clients the value of their stuff.  I have offered eBay services on higher priced items but always wondered how I could help my clients turn their clutter into cash and/or offset the cost of my organizing services.  Well, about a month ago I found myself in the Willowstone Antique Marketplace (at Dublin/Academy next to Sprouts) and now find myself the owner of a consignment booth there…

What happened!?!

Well as you can plainly see, it has been over a month since my last post. Why? Remember that “margin” thing I spoke of, well when my kids arrived home early from their grandparents, Colorado caught on fire and a colleague called and ask if she could hand off a client to me due to a family emergency – all bets were OFF!

Thank you, please come again

Last week’s class was a HUGE success. We were just about out of space and a few who rsvp’d weren’t able to make it! Thank you to all who were there, it was a pleasure meeting each of you.

We covered four things in the class:

Identifying clutter

Space and containers

Managing mail by “opting out”

Recycling – local resources

It was a lot of information to take in. Hopefully all those in attendance took away some helpful tools to get life in order.

Your Colorado Springs Professional Organizer

Jessica Bair has been organizing and reorganizing since she was a little girl: one of her favorite pastimes as a kid was rearranging her bedroom furniture! Who knew thirty years later she would build a thriving company based on helping people change their environment so they could better enjoy their life and surroundings. Jessica grew up in Dallas, TX, but quickly escaped west to go to college at NMSU where she met and married her husband, Dave, of 16 years. Married life brought new organizational challenges, two children, seven moves (two international), several fish, a gerbil, a dog, job changes and building a company.

Delegate to Downsize, Outsource to Organize

So every Wednesday morning my alarm goes off and my most productive business day begins. My Wednesday morning networking meeting is most likely the most important part of my week. It is there that I get to reconnect with other like minded small business owners, learning how I can help grow their businesses and in turn sharing my ideal clients. Weather it is helping one of my chapter members streamline their home office, passing a referral for a client’s new roof or remodel or receiving a referral myself, Wednesday mornings is when I get to do the business of business.
