After each session I’ve felt a great sense of accomplishment. Then, at some point, the cumulative effect of all the sessions became evident. I feel so much lighter and more focused!
Melody makes a real effort to understand my “messiness” and helped me come up with solutions that work for me. The effect is great both short and long term.
After each session I’ve felt a great sense of accomplishment. Then, at some point, the cumulative effect of all the sessions became evident!
My closet has been purged of shoes, clothes, purses, scarves, accessories, embarassingly large amounts of hangers, and other random stuff that got tossed in there when I didn’t have time to find a home for them. My favorite clothes are neatly organized or tucked away in drawers. My bathroom and even under my bed (darn she’s thorough!) has been cleaned out & tidied up. The overwhelming years of papers have all been sorted, trashed or stored properly and my office is welcoming to work in.
My housekeeper can finally clean areas that I often told her to ignore!
Many bags and boxes of donations have been picked up or delivered for distributing to families in need. I feel so much lighter and more focused! Thank you, Melody!Julie McLindon
Melody had everyone leaping into action immediately… Even weeks later they’re STILL buzzing about her insights!
Melody Granger recently gave an outstanding presentation to my “Unstoppable Entrepreneurs Academy”. It was so well designed that Melody had everyone leaping into action immediately… Even weeks later they’re STILL buzzing about her insights! Melody not only provided a beautifully-designed, elegantly-simple, and well-organized talk – but her natural passion for her topic was infectious!!!
She shared from the heart, while also giving us practical ideas that any entrepreneur could implement immediately. She’s not only warm, well-spoken and funny, but she’s been blessed with a natural gift for all things “organized”. Any group would be transformed by hearing her speak, and I can’t thank Melody enough for bringing life to what can often be an overwhelming, confusing, or complicated topic — she’s an organizational GURU!!!!”Stephanie McWilliams
You helped me discover things I forgot I even owned.
Some people in the world are born organized. I am not one of them. You helped me discover things I forgot I even owned. By helping me organize my home, you helped me organize my life.Jennifer Bannon, Prairieville, La
Funny how as soon as I clear things out, something better finds its way in.
Just wanted to say thanks for all of your support!! I really feel like I am starting to see things in a new way in the house..like if I get rid of these things I no longer use, I can replace it with things we really need or want, or something nicer.
Funny how as soon as I clear things out, something better finds it way in.
I feel like I am learning so much. It definitely helps to have someone give you feedback. I’m TRULY grateful!!”Gretchen Powers
Our greatest benefit has been the time saved looking for things.
Prior to Melody’s assistance we performed many of the same activities throughout the office, creating confusion as to where certain files were kept…all our space was full and overflowing. We thought we needed additional storage space.
After studying our agency activity, Melody created a plan that redesigned our utilization of existing space through files and shelves. She helped us understand how to use space based upon office function, placing complementary activities together.
We now have open areas and organized space and do not need more storage. Our greatest benefit has been the time saved looking for things.Fred Rickman
Melody has taken me from a disorganized soul to a confident Business Woman.
I stumbled upon Melody’s website through Pinterest in 2012 and started off by signing up for her newsletter. I had just lost my job and was a complete mess. She sent a thank you email for signing up for her newsletter and askmed me for a little information about myself. Well, the friendship was struck!!!
Melody has taken me from a disorganized soult to a confident Business Woman. I started digesting her newsletters and free information, then enrolled in her Productivity weeks, talked with her about Marketing, signed up for her Closet Organization Course, and not only made friends, but organized my closet and cleaned out years of trash. It was at this point that I fell in love and had her help me organize my whole house. Together we worked and worked on each room, removing everything that wasn’t needed or loved.
In the last year, I had Melody work with me to reorganize my business and to help me move forward in changing my main niche. I have grown so much in the last four years with Melody’s help and look forward to a lasting relationship.
Thank you, Melody, for all that you have done for me. Even Randy (my husband) says thank you, and he is cleaning his side of the office.
(You’re welcome, Elizabeth. Tell Randy he’s the bomb! xo, Melody)Elizabeth Hughes-Callison, Illinois
If I had not made that 1st call to you, I guarantee that I would still have piles and piles of junk in the closets.
You saw them before the transformation — you couldn’t even walk in them. We didn’t even have any idea of what was at the bottom of the pile! We’ve been in the house for two and a half years and I know that without you and your plans, my closets would still be full of clutter and I would be too overwhelmed to do anything about it!
On top of that, it really was nice to have an excuse to get rid of things we didn’t need. Then the idea spread to other places. Now if I go shopping for clothes for myself, I throw a few old pieces away before I hang the new. My utility room has two shelves of clear bins. In the bins are the kids’ art supplies, play-doh, light bulbs, extension cords, cat treats and toys, owner’s manuals. I even have a junk drawer that is organized!
The first time I called you was right after my oldest child got diagnosed with ADD. What is the first thing parents are told to do to help their kids with ADD? Make sure they are organized. Well, I have ADD, too. At that time, I couldn’t even get organized myself much less show him how to do it. With your help, both my son and I fixed a really big problem and our lives are much easier and less anxious without the piles of clutter to overwhelm us!
You really have made a big difference in our lives! I told you then and I’ll say it again, you really are worth much more than what you charge!Jennifer Wallace
We absolutely love the wonderfully functional closet you designed for our new house.
The ideas for storage that you gave me are helping me keep it more organized than ever before.
The storage bench in the center of the closet is perfect for my husband’s boots; he doesn’t leave them scattered all over the house anymore. I have eliminated a lot of clothes we no longer need, per your suggestions, and find that we both have a workable wardrobe at our fingertips, for both work and dress occasions.
I am recommending you to everyone who asks about storage and closet solutions. Thanks, Melody!Lenora Poole
Looks great in my closet!
I have been working so much lately and have finally had the time to get hangers and get it done…just took a few minutes. It made me feel wonderful.
Looks great in my closet! Even got the shoes organized. Thanks for your suggestions. I love it!
(Hey Tina, You’re welcome & OMG!!! That’s FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing the beautiful closet pic. Melody)Tina Thibodaux
I never imagined being clutter free would make such a difference!
Melody, I have been thinking about you everyday and I am so glad I googled you!
My life, mind, and home are forever indebted to you. I sit to pay bills and it takes about one third of the time it used to take – with so much less frustration because everything is right there in one spot.
I love my new closet organization pieces and every time I walk to my bedroom I keep opening my drawers to admire the results.
Thank you for making my life so much better. I never imagined being clutter free would make such a difference!Kathryn Devall
It sure was nice coming back to a clean and organized office.
I used to have a hill of paperwork on my desk when we first began our sessions.
Due to the fast pace demands of my job, my productivity was very bad and work kept ‘piling up’ on my desk. I was only putting out fires and other work was being delayed.
When someone requests information I can easily locate the information quickly, whether it is electronic or within my filing system — and stay mentally focused on the task I am working on, then continue on with other tasks.
It sure was nice coming back to a clean and organized office. I’ve accomplished more today than I normally would due to the organization of my office and electronic filing system.
And I have had lots of compliments on how nice my office looks.
Thanks, Melody. This is a major bonus for me because I do not have to live in my office so much. Now my files, both electronic and hard copy, are well organized and at my fingertips.Danny Kingham
It is now extremely functional.
My baking center was in chaos. You didn’t spend any time on it, but looked at it as you were leaving and told me how to arrange it. It is now extremely functional.Jan V
I am organized, finally!
Oh, what a difference you have made. I am organized, finally! You are a pleasure to be around – wonderful ideas – great personality – very patient and extremely thorough.Penny F
Once again, Melody has found an efficient, productive and fun way for me to make consistent, organized progress on my tasks.
Having worked one-on-one with Melody before worked off the charts and I loved it.
Previously, she came in open, non-judgmental and really created a system totally around me, not fitting me into some preconceived ideas. Her help corralling my paper clutter was the best thing I did for myself that year. I thank Melody again for being such a positive, life changing force for us.
Now, even I couldn’t figure out…”How could I possibly just work virtually with her?”
But, trusting from my incredible experiences working with her before, I took a leap of faith and THANK HEAVENS I did! Once again, Melody has found an efficient, productive and fun way for me to make consistent, organized progress on my tasks.Terese McKee
It gets done and I feel relieved…happy…like I can move on.
Melody, From start to finish, you are there. You never let me lose my way.
It gets done and I feel relieved…happy…like I can move on.
People I know now don’t believe me when I tell them how much stuff I used to have! I am a lifetime learner and invest time, energy and money to expand my life. Streamlining keeps me clear and focused. I get it now.
When I’m shopping I always think of what you once told me, “Before you buy something and bring it into your home, imagine a year down the road and ask yourself if it is important enough that you’ll be using it in a year. If not, think twice before purchasing it.”
I still remember when you started your business years ago. I probably owe you credit for at least half of my sanity & moving forward to more SUCCESSES!Elizabeth Saffell
Now what I need is nicely tucked away in one drawer of a lateral file cabinet. In the event of an emergency, someone else can easily find the necessary information…and…I now have a place in my “office” to SAVE THE DATE!!!!
Previously, I thought I had to keep EVERYTHING! FOREVER! Years of paperwork was piled and stuffed into boxes and bins until they filled what was supposed to be the guest room/office. I couldn’t find what I needed and felt too overwhelmed to figure out how to tackle the chaos. I needed some serious help!!
I was discouraged to find that there were no professional organizers in my area and felt doomed to either live in clutter forever or pay a ridiculously high fee to have someone travel to me. Then I found your site! I was ecstatic to discover your coaching service AND tons of useful information to help me!
I made huge accomplishments, with your help. I cleared out and rearranged items in my gift/seasonal closet and in the entire bedroom. Your suggestions have made my filing system easily accessible. Now what I need is nicely tucked away in one drawer of a lateral file cabinet. In the event of an emergency, someone else can easily find the necessary information…and…I now have a place in my “office” to SAVE THE DATE!!!!
Working with you has been an absolute pleasure! You never made me feel that I was being judged or doing something wrong, but always celebrated even the smallest bits of progress and kept me encouraged to continue. You have an amazing ability to help people find a more productive way to do things, in a manner tailored to their style and personality.
I guess we all need a little pat on the back when we’ve worked hard, and maybe that’s why I never “Got It Done” completely…no one EXPECTED me to, or held me ACCOUNTABLE to finish it. Thanks for believing in me and for all you’ve helped me achieve. Working with you is the best thing I’ve done for myself in a very long time!
(Mary, you are very welcome. I never doubted you. Melody)Mary Pujol
She handed me over a work week that’s not overwhelming, yet highly productive.
Before having my Productivity Boosters Session with Melody, I was a hot mess. Being a fairly new entrepreneur, I had a tendency to overbook people, events and sessions all over the place, which was making me feel a bit scattered and overwhelmed. You know, I was at the point where opening my inbox was a bit frightening, because I knew it only meant more bizarre scheduling. And, in my field of holistic health, this is the last type of energy I need to have. So, I knew something needed to be done, but what?!
During my Skype session, Melody took my topsy-turvy approach to scheduling and organizing, refining it into a polished system. Speaking with her calmed me for she brought me back to the basics.
She handed me over a work-week schedule that was not overwhelming yet highly productive, she simplified my way of archiving emails, and she even helped me come up with a better system for all of those business cards I have collected from networking events!
The funny thing here is, is that I had prided myself with the systems that I had created for the entities listed above, up until the point that my business really started taking off. Melody is a GIFT for the entrepreneur whose business is beginning to SOAR!
There is something so grounding about Melody. Perhaps, it is that she makes being attuned to fine details look so easy and graceful! From my session with her, I have already seen HUGE results. I have structured my week differently, and boy do I feel less stressed. I am much more selective with interactions made at networking events. And, my favorite part is that from my conversation with Melody, I realized how much peace of mind I receive from planning ahead!
Recently, I took time to structure out the whole next month, with room for life (of course), and I feel so much more at ease. Which, as we all know as entrepreneurs, means more business, larger income, and most importantly, an increase in our ability to effectively live our life purpose and serve the planet.Jessica McCleskey Hood, Roswell, GA
One BIG accomplishment we achieved is clearing out piles in an open area and re-arranging contents of 3 side-by-side closets to create a full-functioning office complete with storage and systems.
Clutter: this has always been standing in the way. Always showing up so things are hard to find, or giving me an excuse to procrastinate. As I made the decision to set up my own business, I knew a few cluttering habits had to go. As they say: “Ask and it will be given,” and so Melody showed up in my life.
My top 3 favorite accomplishments: First, everything has to have a home. I love that. If you know where things go, even clutter is easier to deal with. And I love my Personal Morning Ritual: My “Me First” time…that’s where the energy and spirit for the day gets defined. One BIG accomplishment we achieved is clearing out piles in an open area and re-arranging contents of 3 side-by-side closets to create a full-functioning office complete with storage and systems.
Now, the physical clutter and the mental clutter have a home (plus a time to get there, even if they get sidetracked). The housework flows much easier and faster, I can point clearly to someone else where things are or should be, and I’ve cleared up physical, mental and emotional space. I have more time to invest in my family and in my business.
If you are considering investing in Melody’s expertise, do. You deserve to make things easier on you!Ailyn Eida, Switzerland
All of the boxes of paper have been sorted, tossed or organized.
Melody, you have been such a gift for me. I brag about you to everyone!
Since moving into a smaller house four years ago, the accumulation of over 60 years of marriage has been in boxes nearly filling my garage.
Since Melody, my files have been organized, memorabilia has been delegated to save, pass on to my children, give away, or throw away.
All of the boxes of paper have been sorted, tossed or organized.
My closets have been revisited to keep everything neat and accessible for me.
Working with someone else puts things in perspective for me. If you are like me in having someone with you to be more efficient, Melody is the one!Mary Louise McKee
When she works with you, she identifies with your business as if it was her own. Melody got me over that bridge from all the things that need to be done into actively doing them with me. I don’t know what I would have done or where I would be now without you. Definitely not this CLEAR, nor this FAR AHEAD.
I am so glad that I have found your streamlining genius and generous spirit and I don’t know what I would have done or where I would be now without you. Definitely not this CLEAR nor this FAR AHEAD. Plus, Melody, you are my most favorite book editors. Thank you for helping me streamline my book, my website, and get ahead with your Productivity week.
If you want your life or biz streamlined, Melody’s the one to go to, definitely. I love, love, love that she takes me by the hand and guides me through all these dreaded steps that I formerly feared I would never be able (or willing) to do. Melody is a streamlining and motivation master. And, with her at my side via skype and social media, I got waaaay ahead in the game. She is real, authentic, down to earth, and has a way to deliver the improvements without it feeling like criticism. I never felt judged nor pressured by her, just lovingly pushed ahead. Who needs additional pressure, when we already do that to ourselves inside? And she knows that. She’s been there, done that.
When she works with you, she identifies with your business as if it was her own. I had a few great business mentors before, and they all have their skills and suggestions and what works for them. The difference is: Melody got me over that bridge from all the things that need to be done into actively doing them with me. I had no clue about all the marketing steps online that needed to be taken, most of them I heard for the first time, and the streamlining and active putting into place one step at a time now lets me feel like:
a) not only caught up but ahead of the game, now having a solid foundation, and
b) she empowered me to know all these things now, instead of doing them FOR me, she did them WITH me.
Melody is very skilled AND very intuitive and great with people, so I never felt judged, but always in a safe space to keep it all moving. Melody helps you do clearing at all levels, which energizes everything into total success.Tanya von Zychlinsky, UK London
I swear, just being “around” you makes me more organized! No joke.
Melody…I never really thought of working with a professional organizer before, but I’ve learned tons from your videos and blog posts. I swear, just being “around” you makes me more organized! You wouldn’t believe how much difference it’s made to my closets. No joke.
In fact, I was looking at my spic and span bathroom counter top today and thinking proudly, I should send a picture to Melody and show her how organized she’s helped me become! (My bathroom counter is notorious for miscellaneous makeup and jewelry scattered everywhere.)Sukie Baxter, Seattle, Washington
My office received a fresh coat of paint and brand new carpet!
I started re-doing my office early this year and needed some help to keep me motivated and moving forward with the project, as well as some ideas on how to organize the room and make everything look nice while being easy to use. Melody gave me both!”
She gave me the support and accountability I needed to get things done and had some great ideas on how to set things up that would work for me. Thanks to her support, my office received a fresh coat of paint, brand new carpet, and is far better organized than ever before!
I love how Melody would send me links for ideas for different types of shelves, bookcases, and other furniture or tools to help me decide what I wanted to use in my office. I certainly wouldn’t have taken the time to go look for those ideas myself, and it was so great to have her suggest things.Jesse Webb
I always feel a great sense of accomplishment after working together for a few hours.
Melody helped me save papers in the attic, as well as, recycle papers from the attic I no longer need.
Mostly she has helped with all of the chores in my home office.
I enjoy working with Melody and always feel a great sense of accomplishment after working together for a few hours. While being with Melody, I’m able to tackle jobs that I otherwise put off. Her organizational skills are top notch.
I don’t recall any labor that she wasn’t willing to undertake. The list of things that she has done with and/or for me are too numerous to categorize.
I have worked with another Organizer before. Melody is much better at compromising to find a plan that works for me instead of trying to impose her will on my life. I would highly recommend Melody to anyone!Stacy Shearman
I love being able to have people look into my rooms and even look in the closets, too.
I went looking for Melody because I needed to get my house in order. I found her by searching for professional organizers online and sent an email. When I first spoke to Melody I could tell she would get me to a place where I wanted to be. Not only did she help me get my house in order, she has become a very good friend, also.
Melody gave me motivation to get started. She has a real gift to get people moving!!! She made me feel comfortable and never said anything in a negative tone and never made me feel uncomfortable.
I love being able to have people look into my rooms and even look in the closets, too. I love that Melody has a gift to help people and make us feel accepted no matter what and I love her personality and get it done attitude.
I really want to say THANK YOU so much. I’ve really enjoyed working with you, Melody.Vivian Elkins
Not only am I more productive now, but my stress levels have decreased significantly!
In spite of good intentions, and repeated attempts to organize my filing systems, my computer files were a mess! I wasted a ridiculous amount of time looking for important information, but I just struggled along, because I thought I was too busy to take on the enormous task of reorganizing my files… again.
Working with Melody changed all that, and I was amazed how quickly! Melody helped me to access my “natural systems”, and create a simple, logical and functional system in a matter of hours instead of the days and weeks I imagined. Even better, my new system seems to be standing the test of time!
Not only am I more productive now, but my stress level has decreased significantly! If you want a productivity booster shot, then work with Melody.Anne Melnyk, Canada
My tiny corner home office not only looks amazing, but functions very well!
I can’t believe how much you have influenced my whole life!
After working with you, my tiny corner home office not only looks amazing, but functions very well! I now know I would have never figured out how to do it on my own. Besides, it was waaay more fun doing it with your support, motivation, and guidance!
It has motivated me to clean out all of my closets and figure out how to put an end to clutter in other areas of my home. I’m kind of addicted now to looking around at things and asking myself if they serve me anymore, and if not, letting go to create more space and energy.
And instead of being cheap, I’m making small investments on simple things for organizing that make a BIG difference!
It’s a whole new mindset, and lady you’re responsible!! Thank YOU!!!!Kelly Courson, New York
My office is now beautiful, inviting and peaceful to work in, plus we cleaned out and re-organized several closets.
Stuff here, stuff there, stuff everywhere. UGH! That is how I felt until I met Melody Granger.
I function better when my environment is calm and serene. Who doesn’t? But my surroundings had become cluttered and I felt as though I was going in circles trying to get things straight by myself.
I went online and found Melody along with several other organizers. I chose Melody not only because she was prompt in responding, but also because her website was the most informative and professional.
Melody was a godsend. With her help I was able to declutter and organize my surroundings. My office is now beautiful, inviting and peaceful to work in, plus we cleaned out re-organized several closets and much more.
Melody showed me how to organize and more importantly how to stay organized.
Working with Melody was a delight. She was able to take what I considered an awful task and make it easy.Rachel Hale
