I was recently contacted by Smead to be part of their new EBook about organization, featuring the best tips from members of the National Association Of Professional Organizers. Being part of this project was a no brainer! I use Smead products all of the time and was featured in a fun Podcast earlier this year. I really enjoyed sharing my tips and tricks alongside fellow women entrepreneurs and experts.
The Ebook has broken into segments, being released as a 3 part Smead EBook series and part one is available now! You can get your free copy of the Ebook part one here. In this first segment, “Room by Room Organization” for the home I am featured in Home Office Tips and below is a small excerpt from my submission. Enjoy!
Stay tuned to part two in January 2015 and part three coming sometime in March 2015.

After a 25 year career in event marketing and promotion in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C and the Bay area, Hope Berschler left the corporate world to follow her passion for all things vintage, joining the business and community of estate sales. She is delighted to be starting her next chapter with Kuzak’s Closet, as an estate sale specialist, and looks forward to assisting customers in finding the perfect items for their lives and collections.
Hope has been rescuing eclectic 20th-century household treasures from estate sales and flea markets for more than two decades and shows no sign of losing interest in vintage books, ephemera, quirky mid-century housewares and “ugly” original art. You can see some of her favorite finds on her Facebook page: Facebook.com/VintageRescueFinds.

Life is good my friends! I’ve been working my buns off but I can’t complain! I’m enjoying this journey so much, I can’t imagine something more fulfilling at this particular point in my life. This fall will mark 5 years in California for me and Kuzak’s Closet, I never imagined that it would turn into what it is today. I’m glad that I can remember the first 6 months living here, hustling for business and just waiting for the phone to ring. It took me 6 months to get my first client, thank you Kathy Roth for choosing me as your professional organizer! After Kathy’s project was complete my phone never seemed to stop ringing. Back then I thought I was busy but looking back I had such great work life balance. I had time to take Harper on playdates, create recipes for the blog, and visit Google weekly for meals. Now I am tackling 3-4 projects in a single day with my team, Harper is happily walking solo with me, Chris does the cooking, and I haven’t been to Google for months!
I know I’ve gone on these rants before but I am constantly surprised that I have been able to create something with my own efforts, I’m able to make a living and now able to pay almost a dozen people to be on my staff. I’m so lucky to have great people in my life, encouraging me to keep up the good work and pick me up when I don’t think I can keep going. Putting together today’s post of with the latest highlights I’m seeing many of those faces.
Looking back at the last few weeks I’ve had a lot of fun. When I got an invite from Kate Spade at Santana Row to attend a soiree I had to invite Taylor and Monica to come along. It was great to connect with the team at their beautiful store! We shopped, snacked, and caught up on some chit-chat. Taylor bought a cute wallet and I bought these cute booties. I can’t wait until fall, I prefer to wear boots and jeans any day! Kuzak’s Closet will be teaming up with Kate Spade for a fun holiday event so stay tuned to the blog!

You’ll have to wait for the reveal of my latest painted project until tomorrow because today I have something a little more exciting to share! My first Podcast with Smead Organomics is live and I can’t wait for you to watch!
Smead is offering a wonderful Podcast series on their website called Keeping You Organized. They are featuring Professional Organizers from around the country and asked me if I would like to participate. My episode was filmed in December. I was really nervous about the interview but once the cameras started rolling I forgot that I was on film. My episode focuses on my life as a Professional Organizer in Silicon Valley, my Blog, the books I have been apart of, and Kuzak’s Closet Estale Sales. I hope you press play!

Happy New Year! If your resolution is to become more organized than this post is for you. I am launching an 8 week home organization series on the blog next week. My goal for 2014 is to become a go-to organizing expert. I have been getting outside my comfort zone and talking to local groups and putting my processes on paper. The photo above is of my speaking to the local Peninsula chapter of the National Charity League (NCL) last month.
Talking to the girls was a great experience and a reminder that passing on my knowledge of organizing is a true service. I wanted to give the girls something to take home with him so I developed a handout featuring my 6 step organizing process. (Please feel free to print the steps for yourself as a reminder!)
