Kuzak’s Closet Team: Life as an Intern


Aug 27, 2014


Kuzak's Closet Team Intern Life

A whirlwind of summer projects, the time has come to send off our Kuzak’s Closet 2014 Intern, Jordan Gault. University bound, Jordan leaves Kuzak’s Closet with a new perspective on team work, organizing clutter and junk hunting. Unique and at times fun and even bizarre, his hands on experience has been priceless. Jordan developed many unique relationships with the team. From working very closely with the hauling crew to learning tricks of the trade from estate sale specialist Al, Kuzak’s Closet’s tight-knit community will miss him dearly.

Kate Spade, New Hires, Team Work, and Recent Press


Aug 25, 2014

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!
