Our company, OrganizingLA, receives many compliments on our organizing and relocation services. So we'd like to start sharing these kudos with readers by including testimonials on the blog.
With respect to confidentiality, we receive special permission from Clients and will only list the city the work was done, and sometimes a Client's initials, all personal information has been omitted.
Here is our first, a Client from Toluca Lake, CA who owns a successful consulting business and business blog Next Level Biz Tips. Denise actually did not want to be anonymous and together we've written posts about the on-going maintenance of her completed space.
"As many solo professionals do, I work at home. My office is in a corner of my living room. It's pretty compact and everything I need is within reach. The problem is, that stuff was beginning to pile up and spread into my living space. I'm a pretty organized person, but I decided I needed some help to get some fresh ideas about how I could better organize my space to be more efficient and less cluttered.
I contacted John Trosko of OrganizingLA. John is awesome. He brought boxes, labels, tools and we jumped in. I completed his client questionnaire about my space, what works, what doesn't work, what organizing means to me. John's questionnaire was a terrific idea --then we ripped apart my office and started making piles of stuff.
First he took pictures so I would have before and after photos. John gave me great, practical ideas for how to organize my files, how to decide what I need and what I can get rid of; what's important to have at hand, what can be out of sight. The clutter started to disappear.
We discussed several options for shelving, file storage, stuff storage. Next, John purchased all the necessary materials, installed everything and created an organized office space for me. Six months later, I'm still pretty organized and have implemented most of the tips and advice John gave me for staying on top of the day to day clutter items.
Now, I'm a smart person, operate a successful business and probably could have figured all this out for myself if I spent some time doing it. However, I realized how important it is to reach out to a non-judgmental, objective person whose only motivation is getting me organized in a space that is conducive to more clarity, efficiency and productivity. John really helped me stop and deal with all the clutter I've been tolerating but not taking care of."
