Here’s the Rest of the Interview:
What made you want open Perfectly Placed Professional Organization & Design ?
I’ve always loved problem solving, organizing, designing and helping people. This job is a perfect fit for my God given talents.
What excites you the most about your work?
Seeing how organization affects a client’s quality of life. I also love problem solving and seeing the joy on client’s faces when we complete a project.
What is your biggest challenge?
Some months are so busy that I’m exhausted. Other months the phone hardly rings. I’m working on doing some things to help even things out a bit.
How do you find harmony or balance between being a mom and a business owner?
I’m an empty nester now so it isn’t much of an issue but when my kids were younger, I chose to schedule my clients/work around my kids’ school schedule. I dropped them off, went to work and got back in time to pick them up. Now that they are in college, I have more time to devote to work.
Tell us about your family.
My daughter Laura Joy is 21 and is a senior at Missouri State studying Psychology & Gerontology. My son Spencer is 19 and a sophomore at the University of Nebraska studying business.
If you could pick anything, what would your super power be?
Either to clone myself, be in more than one place at a time or have unlimited energy. Don’t all mom’s want these super powers?
What one piece of advice do you have for a mom that needs your service?
Don’t get down on yourself thinking everyone else has it all together or that you should be able to do it on your own. We’ve all been given different gifts and no one can do it all. Everyone needs help with something!
