Organiz-ER and Your Life
Assist individuals with long term life overhaul plans. Our
ideal life client is a person who wants to transition to new
habits and routines. The person may be clean and
organized in their house but do not feel organized because
they don't know how to manage their time or have too
much to do. It is a person who wants to wake up every day
with a new zest for life.
Areas where we can help:
• In transition – for those moving, changing jobs, or
experiencing personal changes
• Trouble finding something, confusion, or feeling
overwhelmed – those who need to find their purpose in life,
feel lost, are confused about how to move forward with life
• SIMPLE BALANCE
Case in Point: Recovering Hoarder
A good example of a life client of ours was a woman we
met while she was living at her aunt's house. This
ambitious divorcee ran a business out of her aunt's
basement, but needed some help staying organized.
Coming from a family of hoarders, she needed to be taught
the life skill of being organized. As her belongings piled
up, even the storage unit she was renting wasn’t enough.
We have since been working with this client on and off for
the past 13 years, helping her deal with her mother’s
belongings after her passing. When her father passed
away and our client went to clean out his house, she called
to tell us, “I can’t believe I used to live like this,” as she
stood in a mess not very different from the one we had
helped her with. Over time, and after taking an
organization course with Susan at Northern Essex
Community College, this woman opened a new business
and enjoys teaching clients time management skills she
has learned. She went on to overcome illness, find love,
and even get rid of her storage unit.
