Tell us something about yourself.
I have an engineering and sales background and ventured in entrepreneurship in 2005 when I started my professional organizing business. I quickly realized that many of my clients were not maintaining the work we did and started studying chronic disorganization, addiction and a spiritual studies to address the underlying issues. I wrote this book in under one year after setting it as a goal at a women’s conference. It was amazing to bring my own experience to the public in the effort to help someone else move ahead in their clutter challenges
