Time capsule for organizers--open! It's a little bit of a rewind week but here's why! I started something a couple of years ago, with someone in our Inspired Organizer® group who was brand new--she had just started her business and I wanted to interview her about taking the leap into organizing. And then almost exactly a year later, I interviewed her again and learned about what the reality of that first year was--what are some things that went great?

174 | 2024 Word of the Year show art 174 | 2024 Word of the Year

The Pro Organizer Studio Podcast

For the last couple of years, instead of New Year's Resolutions or large scale yearly goals, I have picked a word of the year. I pick one word at the start of the year and then I use that as my guiding light, my North Star for the year. So over the holidays, I spent time reflecting and thinking and trying to decide what that word was, that magical word that was going to guide me through the year for my businesses, and for Pro Organizer Studio. Today's podcast brings you the word of the year--and why I picked it!
