Who am I?
Hi! I’m Jennifer, your Business & Home Office Strategist.

I’m also a coffee connoisseur, gamer, Steampunk cosplayer, traveler, personal safety advocate and domestic violence awareness advocate.
Through my unique background and skill set in Business, Marketing, Interior Decorating, and Pro Organizing, I empower overwhelmed online Entrepreneurs create order and flow in their business and home office space.

- Life and business are a journey. Take action that #movesmountains.
How Time Management & Organizing Saved Me
Something I hear all the time is, “you’re so organized!” Here’s the thing…I didn’t used to be that way…
I struggled with depression, procrastination, and on the verge of hoarding. Some days, I thought my mental and chronic illness would get the best of me.
Then, I had to step up my time management, productivity and organizing game in 2011 when I got my first coffee drive-thru (after being a barista most my life). Not only did I have to utilize the tiny space I had for inventory, but I also had to get super productive since I handled operations, admin, marketing, the drive-thru.
During this time, I was in an abuse relationship and originally started this website to document my entrepreneurial journey, to distract be from the chaos around me.
There was a fire within me that knew I was meant for something more. I was fed up. Tired of being a victim. I knew if I didn’t change and take action, nothing would ever change. I was terrified, lost, wasn’t sure of what the future would hold, but it was time for my new journey. It was time to conquer and move my mountain…
Once I refused the victim mindset, set better goals, and put an action plan in place, I felt lighter, less stressed, order, and flow. This also helped empower me by decluttering 85% of my stuff and gained enough courage to leave that relationship to start my life over.
I’ve been obsessed with time management, writing productivity, business productivity, home office organization, calendar management, and Evernote ever since.
What I learned from this adventure…
