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!
In an attempt to catch up and get back on track, let’s reset. Don’t get me wrong, it has taken me years to learn that life is not black and white. And to be honest, my biggest fear about starting a blog is that I would miss a week or two or three and then as it says above, “JUST GIVE UP!”
All I can hope is that perhaps your inbox needed a rest or better still that you missed me.
So as business grows (or life takes an unexpected turn) and margin is in jeopardy, I must consider my options. How can I increase my time and spread my work load. In the last month MAS Movement LLC has taken on 4-6 subcontractors at any one time in order to keep the work flow, well flowing. We have 4 go to gals and 2 heavy lifters on call. A job that may have taken weeks in the past is down to days, better for the client, better for business. Don’t get me wrong we still have clients that are strictly one on one, and we will always find the time to help anyone ready to make the move toward a more clutter free existence!
One area of our business that has seen growth this summer is yard sales.
As I mentioned in a previous post, this has been a summer of sales. Our June sale made $2200 over 2 days. I have hired on my daughter and am training her in the ways of eBay in order to sell off the other $1500 worth of what did not go on the charity truck or to the scrap metal recycle.
We have another estate/craft/Christmas/yard sale upcoming – so stay tuned for that.
So we take the ups and the downs as they come, when things seem to be coming off the rails, the best thing we can do is take a breath and keep moving forward. If you are in need of maintenance or a full overhaul, we are here to serve you. We continue to offer a free one hour consultation to assess your organizing goals.
