Are you ready to create a lasting system for the paperwork and to-dos that clutter your kitchen countertops and your mind?
Gather all your to-do papers in any bag, bin, laundry basket or box and bring them to a Sunday Basket workshop to get them organized!
The Sunday Basket is a system for processing all the paperwork, projects, schedules and random notes that enter your home. We'll dive into your laundry basket of papers from home and begin applying the system during the workshop so that you're a pro when it's time to go home.
There are no refunds or transfer options once you register for your class so check your calendar and make sure the date and time work for you when you register.
Registration is $30 and total time is 90 minutes.
Ready for the next step after The Sunday Basket? This workshop focuses on your productivity. We'll move from the basic five categories learned in the Sunday Basket 1.0 workshop to an additional four with five sub-categories in each. The goal here is to alleviate decision fatigue by removing all the random thoughts, ideas, and to-dos we keep in our minds, to place them within a slash pocket that we'll systematically evaluate on a weekly basis.
Registration is $50 and total time is 90 minutes.
The average American home has more paperwork than what we'll sort during the Sunday Basket workshop. That leaves you with two options: continue working on the paper organization on your own with the strategies you've learned and the systems you've set up OR hire someone to do it for you.
Sort at the Studio provides you with a regularly scheduled block of time in which you can focus your energy on reaching your paper organization goals. The accountability, Q+A, and coffee might be just what you need!
Registration is $30 and total time is 3 hours.
The Ducks in a Row Workbook (PDF and Excel formats) is intended to collect all your vital and personal records in one place.
You can choose to complete the information on the computer or as a printed document with nine chapters and over 60 worksheets. The chapters cover personal information/history (know all about you and your family), emergency plans (know who to contact and where to find the valuables), asset inventories (know what you have), investment inventories (know where the money is), monthly/quarterly/lifetime debt inventories (know where the money goes), insurance policies (know what's covered), medical and prescriptions (know what you're dealing with), contact lists of all important parties (know who to call), and final wishes (know what to do in the end).
If you plan to print the workbook, you'll need one 1.5-inch binder, Avery 10 Tab Dividers, and a handful of plastic sheet protectors that you can use to contain copies of your vital documents. (Store the original vital documents in a fire-proof safe.)
Additional training and support for this product is available via virtual coaching sessions only.

Thinking about becoming a professional organizer, but not sure where to start? Overwhelmed by all the facets of running a business? Author Lauren Flinte, owner of Upstate Clutter Coach, breaks down each element with actionable steps. She built her successful business with just a few dollars and she's sharing all her secrets in this book. Since she can't sit down with you over coffee to share the tips and tricks of the trade, an ebook was the logical choice --- and runs about the same price as coffee for two.

As the daughter of an accountant, tracking my finances has always been a top priority. It's important to know WHAT you're spending your money on and WHERE income is generated. This information helps you to make powerful, informed decisions as you expand your business.
This Excel spreadsheet contains a summary sheet that totals all categories per month to create an annual overview of spending as it auto-populates values from your monthly sheets. It will help you to understand the seasonal cycle of organizing jobs, which tells you when to take vacations, focus on your blog, or even offer workshops as an additional income stream.
The spreadsheet also contains monthly worksheets so that you can easily enter each income or expense item. This function is extremely helpful when balancing the money you THINK you have to what's actually in the bank. It will also help you to keep track of the times you've spent money on your business out of your own pocket and need to reimburse yourself for the temporary loans.
While I do not provide support on the spreadsheet, your accountant and tutorials found on YouTube can help you identify which categories you need to use, how to use them, and how to expand them for future growth.
Basic instructions are included on the Summary and January worksheets.
Give your client something to remember you by on your last date of service. This form includes a summary of work completed as well as when to expect a followup call. This is a great way to remind your clients of all that you've accomplished by highlighting each goal that was met.
