7 Lessons I’ve Learned As A Professional Organizer

1. There’s a real difference between a “house” & a “home”

When you hear the words house and home, some people think that they’re interchangeable, but to me they cannot be more different.

The house seems more to me like a building structure, that has heat, air conditioning, and the basic amenities that humans need.

But a home, is where we have our friends and family over, it’s where we share amazing experiences, and it is a tranquil and relaxing sanctuary that we are excited to return to every day.

Unfortunately, not everybody feels this way and their houses do not feel like homes. It is my vision to help 100,000 people convert their houses into homes and to be excited to have friends and family over and share their spaces.

In order for a house to become a home it must transform into a stress-free and tranquil environment that has systems to stay that way!

2. Everyone has a different vision for their home

One thing that I’ve learned with working with many clients is that everybody has a different vision for their home.

There’s no one-size-fits-all in design, structure, or systems of a home. It can be difficult at times to see other clients visions for their homes, while I have a vision in my head, but it is easier with great communication.

I like that each home and each client is different because it makes the job more exciting, and makes it like a new day every time I start another project.
