Q & A Time featuring Lisa:
How long have you been in business?
It will be 4 years in January of 2019
What is your business all about?
My business is all about helping people with their stuff and the emotions that come along with those items. We provide organizing, decluttering, packing, unpacking and estate sale services. We also provide senior move services. I also love to give presentations to groups.
What makes your business unique?
What makes my business unique is that even though we help our clients with their stuff we are more often helping them with emotions and feelings. Our stuff often invokes feelings of guilt, power, loneliness, confusion. Ultimately we help our clients to a feeling of freedom.
What made you start your business?
My love of organizing made me start my business. I knew or saw that not everyone was able to achieve organization in their homes. I knew I could help.
What would you say are the top three skills needed to be a successful business owner?
Persistence, a belief in yourself, help from others.
What three pieces of advice would you give to someone who wants to launch their own business?
Know that it will take a lot of your time.
Connect with others.
Face to face visiting and sharing your business idea will be well worth your time.
Who has been your greatest inspiration? Or what book has inspired you the most? Or what is your favorite book?
Favorite book: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
How do you conquer those moments of doubt that so often stifle or trip up or stop so many?
Remembering that the last time I had doubts everything turned out ok or GREAT! Positive self talk works wonders too!
