Tell us a little about you . . .
I’m a professional organizer, speaker, trainer, and author of the 1-2-3…Get Organized series. My husband and I have been married for 33 years and we have two grown daughters. We currently work for Shelter Care as foster parents for teenage girls. What is your business and where can we find it? I have two businesses: Distinctives: Helping You Master the Key Areas of Life and Business (interpersonal relationships, clarity of focus and priorities, maximizing time and energy and organizing your space). I am a facilitator for Myers-Briggs personality type inventories. I do team building seminars with businesses and families, and individual appointments with people who want to discover their unique and distinctive personality type. ww.Distinctives.org. 1-2-3…Get Organized evolved out of the organizing piece of Distinctives. Not only do I help people organize their home, office, and time, but I give seminars and workshops to businesses, moms groups, etc. I have written 17 books in the 1-2-3…Get Organized series, which can be found at http://www.1-2-3getorganized.com/. And I have a blog on organizing tips at http://www.1-2-3getorganized.blogspot.com/. A little about your entrepreneur journey so far? During my 26 years coaching within a non-profit, I became fascinated with personality profiles. After becoming trained as a Myers-Briggs Personality Type facilitator, I started my own business helping people master the key areas of life and business: interpersonal relationships, clarity of focus and priorities, maximizing time and energy, and organizing space - both at home and at the office. Interpersonal relationships: I conduct team building seminars and individual coaching based on personality. Some of my clients have included The World Bank, The Department of the Navy, The Embassy of Jamaica, boards of directors, non-profits, families, married and engaged couples. I also help inviduals discover their own personality profiles as they grapple with careers, college majors, mid-life crisis, and self-image. Clarity of focus and priorities: I help people rethink life or career based on personality type, priorities, passions, and giftedness. Maximizing time and energy: time management, efficiency, and scheduling. Organizing space at home or at the office: functional rooms or work spaces allowing people to work at top efficiency. My specialty in this field is helping people downsize to smaller residences. Combining my personality-watching and my professional organizing, I discovered that those who are most overwhelmed by organization are often very creative and artistic. My recently released 1-2-3...Get Organized series of books and workbooks was written for this audience - colorful, glossy, short books. Each book addresses only one organizing task and provides three simple steps to accomplish that task. A sample of the 16 titles: Three Steps to Decluttering, Three Steps to Downsizing to a Smaller Residence, Time Management at the Office, Time Management for the College Student, Organizing Your Office, Clever Cleaning, Organizing Your Kitchen. Where else can people find you?

Anything else you’d like to share? My passions: - Creating an atmosphere which allows others to be successful - To help people make home a refuge rather than a crisis center

I would like to check out 3 steps to clever cleaning. I first like the name of that it makes you interested. I, like I'm sure so many others, don't typically like to clean so it makes me interested to see what Bev has got to say about this "not so fun" thing.

Thanks.

USMCWife said...

I would love to have 133 Simple and Creative Ideas for Writing your Life Story. This sounds like such an awesome book, and I have tons of stories to recount, but I don't want to end up sounding stale and rote. This would be an awesome way to 'pump up' my life stories for reading by others, I think.
