This has been a very long process in getting my life organized and going in the direction that I had envisioned.
I used to be unhappy with my life until I realized I'm the only one who could do something about it.
I was always late, always rushing and always forgetting things. People couldn't depend on me and my oldest son made painful comments about how I never followed through with things. After 2 kids, a divorce and attempting to start a business I realized how important it was to not procrastinate any longer.
So, I can hear you asking "Kate, what did you do next?"
Well, I read a few books like The Four Agreements and Parenting with Love and Logic. Then I started hanging out with small business owners. That's right. I realized if I wanted to be a business owner I needed to start associating with those that shared my hunger to make a buck without someone standing over me. I whipped up a website, had some new business cards printed and had faith that the business would show up.
And you know what?
And now we're so busy we are going to have to start hiring people soon!
I started my organizing business because I love the feeling of accomplishment. I can control an environment by taking a mess and turning it into a functional space. Not to mention the feeling during the process which is total and utter bliss, I get to take other peoples lives and transform them right before their very eyes.
At the end of the day I remember I am no longer sitting on the sidelines of my life. I'm the quarterback and my aim is impeccably precise. I will be successful simply because there is no other option.
