1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?
Professional Organizing – I love it and I love working with people. I’ve always wanted to run my own business. I am also a group fitness instructor because I love it. (It’s my hobby job.) And I’m an author as an extension of the work I do in professional organizing and my blog.
2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business?
I’m really organized. Which not only helps because I am a professional organizer, but it makes running the business easier. I’m also personable and able to relate well with others.
3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most?
Be more of a self promoter…marketing is not my favorite part.
4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?
Don’t be afraid to test the waters a little before you niche down. Also, carefully consider your brand name, colors, logo etc. and network like crazy.
5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?
Schedule out your priorities and be realistic about what you can actually take on and commit to…different seasons allow for different opportunities.
