Get Organized:Get Revitalized 80 Quick and Easy Tips to Get You Started. I have been doing a weekly organizing tip for almost 4 years now. They are very popular and well received so I wanted to share them with a larger audience. Most organizing books are pretty long and a bit wordy. I published my book as more of a tips book to help those looking for quick, easy to implement ideas.
Tell us something about yourself.
I have been a Professional Organizer for 5 years, but I have a degree in Psychology and in Family Relations. I can really relate to my clients who struggle with dis-organization and all that comes with that. Listening to my clients and helping them find easy solutions to their seemingly overwhelming lives is what I love to do each day. I am not specifically a writer but rather someone who loves to share information.
What obstacles did you encounter in getting this book published? How did you overcome them?
The biggest obstacle was myself! I was worried I couldn’t write a book, I am not a writer by profession. I worried no one would want to read my book. One foot in front of the other is the way I got through it. I realized that I needed to get out of my own way and let the process happen. Once I did that it was easy. I found a great graphic designer, who helped find the perfect printer and all of the sudden I had a book!
What types of books do you like to read? Who are your favorite authors?
I love to read auto-biographies, probably because of my background in Psychology. I think it is fascinating to read how other people live their lives. How they struggle just like I do and are often able to overcome their issues. Because they are real life stories they give me hope.
What is the best advice you could give other writers about writing or publishing?
Perfection never comes. Do your best, know that it is a good product and get it to print. Often we spend our time picking things to death and never actually finishing. As writers you can always make it better, but at some point you have to finish.
Who is the perfect reader for your book?
The perfect reader for my book is someone who is feeling overwhelmed, dis-organized, frustrated and is looking for answers. They want to make a change in their life and are willing to make changes in the way they do things.
