What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We usually connect on the phone to discuss the scope of the project -- is it just one room? A basement? An entire house? Then I explain that we will handle virtually every object and make a decision about it -- will you keep it? let it go? The process may sound time consuming, but once we begin working together for a few minutes, momentum takes over. It is amazing how much my clients accomplish in just a 2-hour session!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've read numerous books on feng shui and clutter.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
As I like to say, "Decluttering is half the price of therapy and twice as effective."
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I read some books on feng shui and went through literally everything I owned, discarding the things I no longer wanted. Every garbage day, I literally lined the sidewalk with bags of stuff. I felt incredibly free. Then I started helping friends do the same thing.
What types of customers have you worked with?
All kinds. I've helped a man who wanted to reorganize a few file drawers to a woman who had two decades' worth of clutter in her home.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A woman in a Boston suburb had just had her kitchen redone. All of her kitchen paraphernalia was sitting in a jumble in the living room. In about 3 hours, I had it back in and well organized!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What is motivating you now to begin your project?
Are you ready to let go of some of your things?
We will work together, so can you commit a certain number of hours to working with me on your project?
