LinkedIn sent me a reminder last week that I’ve been a professional organizer for 10 years and in business for in California for 5, I think that means I’m local right? I know I always say this but time flies! When Chris and I first relocated to California I wasn’t sure if I would be able to get my business off the ground again. I had a small business in Michigan and then Chicago but Kuzak’s Closet was nothing like it is today. The thought of starting over made me nervous but I had a vision and I stuck with it. It took me 6 months to get my first client and it’s been a fun ride ever since. I hired my first assistant 3 years ago and now I employ 9 people due to the demand for Kuzak’s Closet services. We have two divisions of the company, home organization and estate sales and the time and demand is divided 50/50.
People contact me all of the time, asking for the secret to how we stay so busy. I think they are disappointed that my response doesn’t include earth shattering news, just basic principles for how to operate as a business owner and member of society. Thus today ,to celebrate 5 years in California, I’m sharing my top 5 secrets for success. If you are reading this and you are struggling with your own business or have been wanting to start something I hope this is helpful.
