I remember when I first hired a running coach it felt like the last resort. I wish it had been my first resort. I learned so much! Sure I can run by myself, but I didn’t. Instead, I felt guilty every time I set an intention and skipped it.
Hiring a coach…
- Made me show up, and learn techniques that I still use today.
- It gave me someone to cheer me on and make me accountable.
- It gave me someone with expertise to answer my questions and witness my progress.
- It got me over the hurdle of failed promises to myself to actually doing it.
- The act of paying for it made it a priority and legitimized it for me.
- It was a way of treating myself to something important. It validated my wishes in a way I hadn’t been doing. It announced to the world that I was serious, and committed.
- It got me started.
My running coach taught me how to cultivate good habits. She didn’t judge me and was the support I needed. I still run, and I remember her advice every time. If I lose my way, I know she is there for me and I can schedule a follow-up session anytime I need motivation, advice, and a buddy.
Hiring a professional organizer is very similar.
You’ve tried to do it yourself, but you can’t quite get it done. It could be a lack of time, focus, tools, or just being overwhelmed and not knowing where to start.
I help people when…
- Their homes, offices, small businesses don’t feel good any more, and it’s time to deal with it.
- They have rooms that don’t function like they should.
- They’re tired of parking in the street because the garage is full of stuff.
- The basement is a minefield of boxes and clutter.
- The spare room has been turned into a storage room.
- The office is overrun with paper and they no longer feel productive.
- The dining room and kitchen counters are a catch-all for paper, mail, random things.
- Their closets are overflowing with clothes they never wear.
- They know what isn’t working, but just don’t know how to deal with it.
That’s where I come in. I help people move from overwhelm to well-being.
My process starts with a conversation. I want to know everything – what’s working, what isn’t, what the pain points are, what’s getting in the way of you achieving your clutter-free goals. We identify the areas to focus on, and I create an action plan. The plan can involve the client a lot, or only as much as needed. I always stress that the client makes all the decisions, and sets the pace. I am there to guide, and coach, and do as much hands-on work as is needed.
I call my company The Less More Method because I truly believe that life is better with less. I coach my clients on the process of letting go and teach them how to maintain a more minimal and organized lifestyle. Everyone deserves to live in a space that is comfortable, functional, calm, and peaceful. That’s The Less More Method!
