Day In The Life: January 2015

0

Jan 29, 2015

It’s a new year and I am constantly reminded how much I love my job! Kuzak’s Closet is booming and I can’t wait to see where 2015 will take the company! With all of the exciting projects going on I am trying to find balance and continue to deliver my standard quality of service while delegating more and more duties to my staff. With the demand for services as high as it is I can only grow with the help of others.

January is always a busy month but this year we were booked out earlier than usual (starting last November).  We’ve had 2 great estate sales and an estate liquidation along with dozens of organizing sessions.  I am actually looking to expand my organizing staff so if you or someone you know if interested in a job please check out the job posting here.

Speaking of staffing, things have changed a bit with my current staff.  Al De La Rosa, one of my estate sale specialist has decided to retire after 2 years with the company.  We were all sad to see him go but happy for him to have more free time to pursue his passion and creativity at Alberto’s Garden Art.  Jennalynn Sallings, a very familiar face in the cashier seat at our estate sales is back after a 6 month hiatus. It’s been great to have her enthusiasm and spunk back!  Billy Save, my right hand man, had heart surgery in early December and much to my shock is already back at work.  He still needs to take it easy but we are glad to have his smile and his hauling expertise back on the job.

Today I am looking back at the highlights from January.  Organizing is my passion and I love to see before and afters, this year has already been full of them in both the home organizing services and the estate services.  Thank you all for being apart of the journey that I am on!

Kuzak's Closet Kitchen Organization

I’ve been in so many kitchens and closets so far this year I can’t keep them straight.  Taylor and I have been teaming up for most sessions so we can service more clients at a time.  She has been a great partner in crime and has turned into a great professional organizer.  Most days we have 2-3 projects going on so if I cannot manage something she picks up the pieces for me.  I’m lucky to have her and hope that I don’t burn her out too much before we can hire some additional help.
