I’ve been in the professional organizing business now for over 16 years. If you know me well, you know I love what I do and who I do it with. For the last few years, as I inch toward my 60th birthday, I’ve noticed that the physical portion of my work has been begging the question, “Just how much longer do I want to do this to my body?”
As that question has been simmering on the back burner, I was hoping to find a new position to use my talents and experience based on my passion for organization and productivity and I found it. Starting this February, I will be the new Business Development Manager for The Junkluggers.
This is a company I have synergized with for years and believe wholeheartedly their mission. At The Junkluggers, they aim to donate and recycle 100% of all items they remove from residential and commercial jobs, setting the standard in the United States for eco-friendly disposal and practices. They diligently strive for this daily and search for new charities to donate to and more environmentally friendly ways to dispose of materials they “lug” away that can be neither donated or recycled.
I will not only be helping the company to grow with their goals, but I will also be developing a separate service within my Junklugger position to incorporate the utilization of having a professional organizer (just me to start) on the Lugger Team.
So, you can not only have your home contents decluttered and removed, but you can get me to spearhead the project. I feel strongly that my project management skills and soon-to-be trained team of Luggers, has the potential to make the following tasks quick, efficient, less stressful and less expensive in the long run. These overwhelming ventures to most people may include:
- Aging in Place
- Any General Decluttering
- Construction Projects
- Estate Clearing
- Moving and Relocation Preparation
- Office Cleanouts
- Preparing a Home for Market
- Property Management
Two Simple Ways of Continuing to Work with POSSE and The Junkluggers!
“Often I find in large organizing projects, it goes easier and faster if you have the strength of many hands, a truck or two, and everyone cooperates with the one woman in charge!” JM Herron
Weekdays from Junk-Hugging to Junk-Lugging
After an assessment, this service is project-based on the length of time the organizer is with the Lugger Team and the volume of the Junklugger trucks(s) filled with client donations, furniture, recycling and maybe even some junk.
Weekend Quickie with Just the Sheriff of POSSE
This is a half-day private organizing session with just Jean Marie Herron, CPO®. It is an approximate 3-hour, hands-on, working session for either residential organizing or home office productivity. These appointments are only done on Saturday or Sunday.
So there you have it, the new me for 2022! I hope you will keep me in mind as I pursue my next steps and join me either way.
