Embracing Minimalism and How it Makes you a Better Leader

Embracing Minimalism and How it Makes you a Better Leader

October 3, 2019

My guest on this episode is Jasmine Rae, a former client of mine who I kinda, sorta forced to embrace minimalism. But now she's loving it and her businesses are thriving!

Jasmine is a certified fitness professional and founder of Rae of Hope, a non profit that provides fitness programs for at risk teens. She uses her own experience with drug and alcohol addiction to show kids that there are alternatives outlets for them, such as working out. Her story has inspired me from day one and I'm excited for her to share with you!

We chat about another addiction - shopping -  and how it can lead to a cluttered home and head. I've watched Jasmine do a 180, removing all unnecessary clutter from her space (and moving cross country with only a handful of bags and boxes!) and thriving in her business. Minimalism has helped her be a better coach and business owner, and has overall simplified her life.

Take a listen as she shares her journey with you and her perspective from a self proclaimed disorganized, messy person to an organized, thriving BOSS.

Decluttering your Mind and Why it has Everything to do with Your Success

Decluttering your Mind and Why it has Everything to do with Your Success

September 26, 2019

Most people ask me for help to declutter their physical space, the clutter that piles up in their homes and offices, but almost no one thinks to ask for help with decluttering the internal stuff. The funny thing is, physical clutter is the direct manifestation of internal clutter. That's where it allll begins.

For me, I had so much mental clutter for the first 30+ years of my life that it prevented me from moving forward and from doing the things I really wanted to do. Including starting my own business! Once I was confident enough to make the leap, I still work to maintain a clutter free brain every. single. day. Much like going to the gym regularly helps keep your body in tip top shape, working on your mindset daily helps keep your noggin getting stronger and stronger.

In this solo episode, I not only explain how and why it's so important it is to declutter your mind, I also give you actionable tips on how to do it, straight from a pro!

Serving up some tough love on today's episode with six crucial rules to get and stay organized. I give three for your home and relate three to your business with specific examples for each.

By having a professional eye on the spaces, now she's able to get ready, work, and relax much easier!

Running a Business while Battling Chronic Illness

Running a Business while Battling Chronic Illness

August 22, 2019

Having a chronic illness and living your life is tough. Having a chronic illness, living your life, and running an empire is even tougher. I know lots of bad ass bosses who are fighting their own battles and I want them to know they're not alone.

For my third episode, I talk about the crappy health card I was dealt, how I didn't let it stop me from starting businesses and how being organized helps make life a little simpler. If you struggle with your mental or physical health and feel as if it's holding you back from pursuing your dreams, give this a listen and see if I can inspire you to be the boss of your body and brain (rather than the other way around)!

Meet Mary : My Obsession with Organizing and Why it’s so Friggin Important

Meet Mary : My Obsession with Organizing and Why it’s so Friggin Important

July 29, 2019

For this first episode, I wanted to tell ya exactly who I am and why I am the way I am. Coming from a cluttered background, I took organization and minimalism to an extreme as a young adult. In my 30s, not only have I found a happy medium, I also found my passion for getting and keeping others organized. 

I began Sort and Sweet Inc in 2017 as a solopreneur and took on a business partner in the beginning of 2019. We're building a team and expanding our reach way further than our Long Island bubble! I also privately coach new entrepreneurs to get organized in their businesses under my second company Organized Overall.

The reason I named it Organized Overallis because I've made it my life's mission to help people understand that clutter can affect any and every area of our lives and that organization IS possible to have even in the chaos that we experience on a day to day basis. My soft spot is for entrepreneurs because I GET it. I'm in the thick of it and know that it's not an easy journey. My goal is to show you that it can be simpler and, shocker, actually FUN!

I'm so excited to be here and can't wait to help you get organized overall as an entrepreneur!
