This woman is truly a super mom! She adopted her daughter six years ago and works with educators, therapists and doctors to ensure the best possible environment for her daughter. In addition to being a solo parent, she has a thriving business with three locations! She maintains care of her home, vacation property, vehicles, daughter, businesses, employees, three dogs and a cat. Are you tired just reading that?
This busy momprenuer works nearly around the clock between her daughter, business, home and pets and a little bit of self-care. One of her stress reducers is shopping. Her home has filled beyond capacity with no time to make decisions about what stays and what goes, things just keep coming in. Her stress level increases with the frustration of not finding what she needs and buys duplicate objects. Overwhelmed and frustrated, she called Sigh of Relief Organizing for help.
She needed practical solutions to get her home and schedule under control. She needed on-going support to keep the home under control. She needed guidance to keep her busy life running more smoothly.
The first step was to build a trusting relationship and get a real feel for her household. Andrea met the dogs and cats, her daughter and toured the house to get a real feel for the whole picture. We then systematically worked through the whole house, top to bottom. The first session was in her huge walkin closet. We sorted for four hours, this first pass. Clothes that didn’t fit or just didn’t feel right were donated and the out of season clothes were brought to the basement. Clothes that she wanted to keep were sorted by type: pants, dresses, exercise, etc. We got to the exercise clothes and needed to have a chat. We found 26 pairs of black yoga pants. That’s only black pants, not counting other colors, just the black ones. This busy momprenuer that holds everything together broke down in tears. We talked about life stresses and possible coping mechanisms. After a bit of coaching, she said “Now you are my therapist, my organizer and my financial advisor!” It was a huge breakthrough!
Why Sigh of Relief is perfect for the job:
As a mama and a business owner, I can relate to momprenuer’s struggles. I give practical advice to help her streamline her life. I also understand that we all need grace and try to give her someone to lean on when she’s struggling. I’m also happy to be a trusted advisor in her life. We have set up reoccurring sessions to keep working together. I know her home from top to bottom and can come in to tidy and organize even when she’s busy working. We have created a trusting relationship that will continue for years to come!
