On the "about me" page of my website I talk about being a late bloomer. I didn't have any job at all until I was in my 30's....unless you count raising six kids which I definitely DO! But I love change and even with Yikes haven't been content to just do things one way.
I'm always tweaking something and am in the middle of a major website overhaul with a professional company. I'm excited for how that will expand my business...not to mention make me look more professional.
I also went to our NAPO national conference for the first time and it solidified another change I want to make. Although I LOVE you all and business is good,
I'm going to branch out and also offer unpacking and what I call "settling-in" services. So many people are moving to Nashville that this seems to be a natural way to expand. And I love the thought that with two or three days hard work I can make a huge different in the life of my client.
Time and time again I see people who have moved anywhere from six months to six years ago and their garages and attics are still full to the gills with unopened boxes. I have to be honest and tell you that this makes me a bit crazy. If you haven't used something in six years, how important can it be? So I hope to make a big difference in letting people get back to their lives sooner and allowing them to start over with systems that work and make sense.
So....if you have friends or co-workers who are moving in or out of Nashville, please keep me in mind. I will pack for people (although that isn't nearly as much fun as unpacking!) but I can also do a lot of good on that end in helping people pare down and not move a bunch of useless items.
Anyway, I'm excited about adding this service and already have had two moving clients in July. I even went to Lexington to help one of them with the unpack. So please keep your ears open for opportunities like this.
Again, referrals get you a free hour of organizing and my forever grateful heart!
