Eleven down…1 to go! I’m happy to report that I survived November, it is the month when “worlds collide” at Kuzak’s Closet. All of my organizing clients need organizing sessions before the holidays and the estate projects that come by way have to be handled before year-end. I will admit that much of my survival is credited to a week-long trip to London during the first week of the month. I packed my bags and left Taylor and Al in charge. It’s no surprise that things were handled perfectly.
I left for my trip at the tail end of the Campbell tool sale, a huge project that was fun for the staff and also led us to hiring our latest team member, Yovan. He is like a flash of lightning, always on the move and quick to help. He has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to recycling which is a key element to both facets of my business. Aside from the Campbell tool sale we organized one of the most memorable estate sales of my career in Los Altos Hills. I’ll talk more about that later in this post.
The first of November marked my 10 year anniversary of being a professional organizer and my 5 year anniversary of moving Kuzak’s Closet to California. To reflect on the occasion I put together my top 5 secrets to success in Silicon Valley…here is #4, you can read the full post here. There is a rumor that my tips may be featured in a major publication by the end of this year so stay tuned for that!
While I was away we partnered up with ModCloth for a fun fashion post about layering. It was perfect timing because the weather in California was just starting to get chilly. I’ve been living in cardigans, scarves, and leggings and I couldn’t be happier. Fall is the easiest time for me to shop and feel comfortable in my clothes. Do you have a season that works best for you? Continue Reading »
