Years of De-Cluttering

17 years of being a Certified Professional Organizer and you can probably guess – I’ve seen it all.

But something I didn’t actually anticipate back in 2001, was the relationships I would be forming with my clients. In my view 17 years of being in a small business and being successful is an incredible accomplishment. But today I write you about some of my firsts….

There have been clients that have been a “one off deal”. They are in need of help and coaching and when the day is done, they’re happy and organized. These clients are usually families with children. But some of my first clients were professional people who were entering “middle-age” or thinking of retiring. These amazing, organized and dedicated individuals have called on me from time to time to help in life changing situations.

I have had the honour of assisting them from moving from their family home to an apartment or condo. I have been blessed to shared the ups and downs of “downsizing” and for some moving into spaces that provide a bit more care.

It hit me this week, that I have grown so very attached to these people. They have become my friends, confidants and sounding-boards. We know everything there is to know about each other families and lives because of the time I have been given to walk along beside these wonderful individuals. I never expected to form such ties with clients that had called me for help so many years ago. But I have, and I am humbled in their trust and belief of who I am and what I do.  There have been difficult decisions and moves made,  but I believe that because of our strong relationship both of us make these moves easier on each other.

To all those clients that have become “friends”, to all those who have allowed me to join them in this incredible journey. Thank you. Thank you for your never ending confidence, faith and assurance.
