Clutter, pile-ups, and chaos can make you a bit crazy at times!
And, it happens. To nearly EVERYONE, at one point or another.
But, if “messes” are causing frustration or distress…you are in control to change that. Which is why you are here. Yay!
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I know that stress on our nervous systems hurts our minds, bodies and spirits.
And, that totally sucks.
Hang in there if you’ve gotten stuck on what to do next or how to make an area functional, or if you’ve had a lot happening and haven’t been able to finish what you’ve started. Don’t get discouraged or give up!
You’ll love the well-organized, streamlined side of life.
It’s a beautiful experience.
If you only make one major change in your life to help prevent and relieve stress, I can not emphasize enough how much a streamlined, beautiful, well-organized, serene home and workspace positively impacts your attitude, personality, focus, concentration and productivity.
Not to mention the potential to increase your business revenue.
And take vacations!
For me, my home environment is my number 1 priority.
Because my home environment impacts everything else that I am in life.
Privately and professionally.
And, if the way your home looks, feels, and functions is extremely important to you, then I’m happy you’re here.
You’re in the right place.
You can find a lot of free materials to help you get started.
I’m often asked if I work long-distance.
And, the answer is Yes!, Yes!, Yes!.
I use email and video technology to communicate and meet with you for several hours at a time while we transform your space.
If you are looking for a professional organizer in the Shreveport, Louisiana area, then let me know if you think you have an organizing project you think I’d be interested in. It’s fun for me to do some local in-person work when I have availablility.
I never realized that in a couple of (Skype) sessions with Melody, I could have my office completely organized and functional for me! I accomplished more in several hours than I ever did in months trying to tackle things on my own. Anyone who works with Melody, listens to her ideas, and implements them, will have much better peace of mind in their life. She’s not only amazing at what she does, but a wonderful, kind, caring person.Cassie Winterhalter
Hi, I’m Melody Granger.
(Looking for an official bio? Scroll to the bottom of this page.)
Between my strong visual-spatial skills and natural knack to pristine clean spaces and make them really neat and streamlined, I found myself starting an organizing business.
I had no idea what “organizing” was, but I didn’t want to be a housekeeper, per say. I just wanted to stop working for someone else, and be able to travel when I wanted to get away, be home with my children more hours than they were at a child development center, and wake up late! I have more energy later in the morning and into the evening.
So, I dived into the world of entrepreneurial leadership…from home!
And, yes, I’ve done the 1000+ hours of mentorship, marketing classes, developing a website (or five!) designing programs, filling openings, and running FB ads, etc, etc, etc… (I’d love to hear who you’ve worked with!)
During my 10+ years as a professional organizer, I have observed that it doesn’t matter what size house you have, how much money you’ve got, or what your age is… we all have similar things behind our cabinet doors, in our closets, stashed under the bed, stored out of sight, or pushed out of the way.
I won’t mention the paper trauma people get themselves into.
Lots of your stuff is loved.
At least, it probably was at one time.
And, much of it isn’t really wanted or needed any more. We change. Our styles change. Our priorities change. That’s why clutter builds up. It happens to most people, so you’re not alone. I help you take back control of your space, so you can do more of the things you want to focus on.
One of my most memorable experiences in my career is when a client went crazy tossing things. (Okay, so most of them end up becoming addicting to tossing!!)
She didn’t start off that way, but once she started feeling the freedom from letting go (oh, sweet relief), that spark fueled her rising spirits to tackle more.
Honestly, a lot of my clients end up tossing so much that it scares the crap out of me!!!
This lady went on to do things she swears she would have never done if she hadn’t purged so deeply – like traveling and exploring in other cities, yoga, and revisiting creative ideas she had put on the back burner.
I get to hear stories like hers on a regular basis. It’s exciting. I used to not share this part of the “after” story with others, because I didn’t want them to think they had to get rid of everything to have exquisite life stories to follow.
One lady received an offer to turn her book into a movie. Another hired a team of people in her business. And, yet another lady, went on to meet her husband and have a baby.
A common theme for the people I work with is: remodeling, updating and/or moving into a new phase of life.
They were working so hard on their own, maybe got overwhelmed, stuck, or just didn’t know where to start, or felt like they were going in circles to figure everything out…which led to frustration, and sometimes it was simply taking too long and they just wanted help to get it done.
Can you relate?
My services are for you if you’d like help making the changes you want to happen in your home or home business office, faster than you’ve been able to do alone.
All you need is a strong desire to make changes, plus some inspiration, enthusiasm, access to Skype or FaceTime video, and the flexibility to meet with me for several hours at a time.
As a private client, you’ll be working directly with me, not an assistant.
Oh, and if you’re feeling any embarrassment about those crazy, messy areas, then that’s the first thing you can let go of, because I promise you, every one gets into messy situations. It’s such an innocent thing that happens. Just a part of life!
I’ve seen pretty much everything! And struggled with the demands of keeping up a home – which is just like running it’s very own business – and with my clients.
Then again when I uprooted my life, put my biz on the backburner, and had a surprise baby at 44. (My 2 oldest children are away at college).
Once you are smiling from ear to ear from the results, I wish I could declare a law that you MUST have a house cleaning person pop in to help you keep it pristine clean, at least once a month. A housekeeper is a blessing.
You may already have someone helping you, like some of my clients do.
If so, good for you!
AND, I’d enforce a law to pick up after yourself at least every 3 days — daily if there’s more than one person in the house — to prevent major dread at cleaning when things start landing every where & you start stressing when the house looks like a tornado hit it and the important stuff gets mixed up with the less important stuff. Your may start pacing, trying to figure out where to start tidying, while your mind is freaking out… “Eeeks! Help!! I can’t focus!”
Getting addicted to streamlining strategies that make life easier and more stress-free is totally worth it!
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the housing industry, from flipping old homes to helping design closet systems, from transforming cluttered spaces to spacious living, from getting a home ready to sale to unpacking the new homeowner. I am the Professional Organizer for my region with a National Relocation Company who provides full-service moves for Corporate Companies transferring their top leveled employees.
Now I confidently coach others – mostly home-based entrepreneurs – through the often overwhelming process of cleaning out & re-organizing messy areas. I don’t organize children. They will learn from you modeling organized behaviors, if you have any little ones in your life. Most of my clients have adult children (with a possible “later in life child”) or no children…yet.
When I read Melody’s blog, I just felt that she would get me and that she wouldn’t judge me and I KNEW someone with that much passion for organizing could definitely whip me into shape. My sessions with Melody were so easy. I can’t say enough good things about her, but be prepared to put in some work and meet her halfway. While I was sad to be ending my private coaching sessions with Melody, I was so grateful to have had her in my life! She taught me so much more than just de-cluttering and organizing.Nancy Urena
