Barbara has been helping me regularly for almost a year now. She has helped tremendously with a variety of types of organizing and coaching. For example, we created an entire file system for all paperwork; we organized closets and clothing; we researched products to purchase; we sorted through papers and belongings of a relative who passed away; we discussed business projects... and much more. Barbara has a wide variety of skills in many different fields (technology, business, coaching, research, organization, relationships and more!). As much progress has been made in organizing a life that was overwhelming, I am now transitioning to work with Barbara on entrepreneurial projects which she can help me organize and stay on track for productivity. I highly recommend Zen Your Den for all kinds of projects: personal, professional, home, office, short/long-term goals and future planning!Jul 10, 2018VerifiedZen Your Den's reply
It has been great to see your progress as you tackle one intense project after the other. You have shown great personal strength and perseverance in dealing with the past so you can move forward. Thank you for letting me be a part of the journey!
I’m a single mother with two boys in the house ages 7 & 2. My life had become cluttered and chaotic, so I reached out for someone to help get me organized. Barbara at Zen your Den has been fabulous. We started in the kitchen and are working on bedrooms. I’ve already noticed a difference in mealtime and morning flow. I’ll post before and after pics when we finish. She is so great to work with, has great tips, listens to my individual needs and is very patient. It has been worth every penny!Mar 18, 2018VerifiedZen Your Den's reply
You are fun to work with, Wendi! We will get it done. I am enjoying the process; it's easy when working with someone so motivated!
If only I would have hired Zen Your Den sooner! I can think in my home now and I have a plan to tackle the situation of clutter that creeps up on all of us. Barbara was professional and personal, and easy to work with. She made it easy for me to organize not only my things but my life, and make me happier! I learned so much, so it is a good "life" investment especially for new homeowners and newlyweds. Zen Your Den is worth every penny!Jan 9, 2018Review from GoogleZen Your Den's reply
Thank you for the kind words, Mary! Sometimes it's good to have support to tackle hidden areas that are being avoided, whether it's a crammed file cabinet, cluttered 'guest' room or a garage. My goal is to empower you with skills to continue with the process, so I'm happy to hear that you have learned something too. For that, you get a gold star!!! ⭐
Barbara helped me a ton....I didn’t even know where to start and she got me Pointed in the right direction. She worked non-stop and helped me accomplish a great deal. So pleased I met her and even more grateful for the work we got done.Mar 15, 2018VerifiedZen Your Den's reply
Thank you for the wonderful review, Lana! The local shelter will appreciate all the linens you donated to provide a comfy space for dogs and cats waiting for homes or receiving care. And there will be some happy humans who receive all of your other donations! I am glad I was able to help you get started :)
Awesome service. Very detailed and professional. Also tailored to my needs instead of one size fits allAug 13, 2017VerifiedZen Your Den's reply
Thank you again for the great review!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge an hourly rate with a four hour minimum as much more can be accomplished with a dedicated block of time. I offer several packages for those who would like ongoing assistance or a larger block of hours. And for those who are hesitant to let someone into their home and/or want a smaller time commitment, I offer "virtual" organizing. That's right! I can help you by phone, one hour at a time. It is difficult to quote on an organizing project because so much depends on the scope of the project, timeline, and most importantly, the decision-making speed and motivation of the client. Professional organizers do not (should not) make decisions on what gets tossed or donated. We make recommendations and give guidance, but the final decision rests with you, the client.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have a phone consult with a potential client first to find out a little more about what prompted them to seek help, the area causing the most stress and what their ultimate end result would look like. It's good to get to know each other a bit. Letting someone new into your personal space requires a level of trust, and even more so when that person will be working with you and your personal belongings. So it's very important that you feel comfortable with the professional organizer you hire.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Credentials: ~ Professional member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals) ~ Certified Professional Organizer (NAPO) ~ Residential Organizing Specialist (NAPO) _ Life Transitions Specialist (NAPO) ~ Workplace Productivity Specialist (NAPO) ~ CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management) through PMI (the Project Management Institute). ~ I have been reading an average of a book a week since 2016. Many of these books are on organizing and productivity. This has been transformative!
