I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Thanks, Janet, for hosting!
    I especially like the reminder of the importance of whistling while you work… and the video in Stephanie’s post (When You Fall Do You Get Back Up) is absolutely inspirational: go watch it!

    I always enjoy reading the ways different organizers approach a subject, especially the creative use of words, images, and even video.
