It is a pleasure to work with AugustPops. She is in an orderly and intelligent manner helping me create logic out of chaos with an enormous backlog of problems and paperwork. I am beginning to see the light and a system that will guide my business and personal life.Mar 2, 2019VerifiedAugustPOPS - Organizer & Assistant & Proj. Mgr.'s reply
It’s been my pleasure to work with you these past few months and I look forward to our continued work together.
JoAnn is a treasure! She helped me do projects that I wasn’t able to do on my own and were so overwhelming. She is organized, diligent, honest, thorough, trustworthy and very professional. She is a highly capable professional who could easily run a large company on her own. She has helped me with a wide range of projects from administrative paper work, to organizing closets, paying bills etc. She is a pleasure to work with and I very highly recommend her.Nov 6, 2018VerifiedAugustPOPS - Organizer & Assistant & Proj.

Joe, thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure working with you and I appreciate the continued friendship.
Jo-Ann was exactly the person I had been looking for. Happily for her, and unfortunately for me, she got a full-time job almost immediately after I met her. The company that hired her is very lucky to have her!Jan 9, 2016VerifiedAugustPOPS - Organizer & Assistant & Proj. Mgr.'s reply
Thank you, Joanne - I am now doing home and business organizing full-time and no longer working for the company you mentioned.
Sometimes when you reach out to the universe you get really LUCKY. I had a miserable time working with the latest upgrade (joke) of Word. I had to get a mailing list printed for a client of mine. She is a love, she's 89 and this mailing is for an open studio event. After persisting for hours a light went on and I thought "ThumbTack". Jo got back to me. She was AMAZING. How she spoke of the project told of her experience and knowledge. Within two hours she re-formatted my Exel spreadsheet and had a job ready in AVERY for me to print the labels. I drove them to my clients and she and her guy are probably right now sticking them on the postcards for her mailing. I'm happy, my client is happy, and JO is the professional boss of this project. I only hope I have more stuff to send her way. Excellent. Professional. Responsive. Mature.

Liz, I have to say this is the most amazing review for the shortest project I’ve had to-date. I saw your post and thought - I’m in NY and you’re in CA, I can’t handle the job for you but I can offer some free advice for you to do it on your own. Then we spoke and I figured out a way to help you! I am very grateful for your review, and very happy I helped you help your client!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am open to discussing and maybe negotiating the price, based on the needs and expectations of the project. I am open to hourly, daily or a one-time fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Phone conversation first. when planning for the call, I will usually ask the customer to come prepared with thoughts about the following: What is your ultimate goal? What are your thoughts in how you would like to approach the job? What do you see as my role in this and how can I partner with you to get the best results?
