Motivation

As some of you may know, I had an ad on Living Social during the month of February and March.  The offer was 2 hours of organizing services for $50. The response was really good, especially with regards to clicks on my website.  So what does that have to do with “motivation”???…. Well, I’m getting to that!  Two (2) hours really isn’t a lot of time to complete an organizing project, so you either want the client to buy additional hours of your services or you want them to be motivated to continue the project without you.  Both are WIN-WIN scenarios!!

There was one client in particular that was given the Living Social voucher as a gift. She had taken the time to make a list of questions for me prior to our visit and was really excited about getting started.  She has a sincere desire to de-clutter and become more organized, but again, we only had TWO hours.  We started our time together by sorting and purging through her dresser drawers.

Here is an excerpt from the email that she sent me after our visit…

Ms. Candy! 
I had a great time with you Saturday, I am so glad you came. Thank you for the motivation, I truly needed it. As for separating my work and casual clothes that are folded I think I am going to keep that as is. It’s more important that they are folded up and put away in the drawer.  There were numerous items that we decided to hang in the closet, so the closet became our 2nd area of focus.   I was drawn to the nearest Walmart to purchase those things you spoke of called “skirt hangers”. Those things you called “skirt hangers” really do exist, AND they hang up skirts perfectly! … LOL!!!   :-D.  I purchased 3 skirt hangers that hold 6 skirts each, so I have extra hangers if I purchase more skirts.

I’m even amazed myself on how much we were able to accomplish in 2 hours.  We didn’t have time to work on other areas of her apartment, so she did the kitchen after I left.

I love it when a plan comes together.  My goal is truly to have the client motivated, so that they will de-clutter and organize on their own and maintain it after I leave. This client suggested that I FaceTime with her, every once and a while to check on her progress.  AWESOME IDEA!

I appreciate all your suggestions and motivation. Thank you for helping me declutter my apartment of all the clothes! Everything is on the up and up and I plan to keep it going. Have a wonderful day!
