What is an organizer and why me!?
Because I am instinctually organized, and have been since I was a little boy!
I am good at interpretation, listening and explaining to form concepts, ideas, planning, compartmentalization thinking and then being able to execute these things into a solid result. Besides, I just love order in my life and now I can help others do the same thing!
I was a dedicated paperboy at age 10 and had my first checking account and was very accountable to my customers and loved it! Folding papers, bagging, delivering on time and collecting taught me discipline early on.
I started playing drums at age 10, actually around 7 when I got a paper drum set for Christmas, man I loved the physicality of drums and the sound of percussion! I took drum lessons and played in a small band and met the great Buddy Rich twice and watched him play his drum set!
I began painting and drawing also, at age 10. My Mother was a very good artist in oil, water color and sculpture, as her mother was too. I enjoy art of all kinds. At age 20, I started into photography using my first SLR's, Minolta, then Nikon - my favorite. I kept that passion going too, and have much of my work framed from slide film, converted into enlargements of landscape photography!
I started cooking at 10, wow! My parents allowed me to get involved in the kitchen. Putting together recipes, following instructions, setting oven temperatures, using measures to make sure amounts are proper with recipes taught me organization to a degree (pun) that really helped me with a very important life skill set, I do love cooking!
I began working out at age 12 and logged in Steno Notebooks of all my workouts - writing every rep, set, pound with careful notes right through 2008, and thought, "okay, that's enough, I proved I could do it!" I have over 35 workout log books spanning four decades of workouts. I competed in amateur body building from 1979 to 1982, winning third in Mr. Teenage Indiana. The discipline needed to compete are intense with dieting, training, preparation are significant. Body building and fitness taught me the highest levels of discipline and I use those early habits to this day in all aspects of my life to stay organized and disciplined. I met Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1980 at the Mr. Universe contest where he was MC of the show. I witnessed greatness and was inspired by high-level achieving people early on and this taught me to stay focused on my dreams to make them reality.
I began writing poetry at age 14 and love writing and expression as well. I have nearly 300 poems I've written and will have them published. Being able to express myself in writing is something very important to me, as life just isn't about square pegs and round holes. It's about flexing with situations and working with ideas, people, leading, following and getting a final result that makes sense and is well balanced.
I takes great care to bring positive order to your belongings, as "the organizer" so you can function much better within your home, creating peace and a real sense of calm in your life. There's many imposters in the organizational business, just like in fitness business that profess to know what they're doing, and simply don't. I do. I have dedicated my life to organizing my life and clients' lives.
The removal of CLUTTER and the restoring of order again and then to reorganize, remove unneeded items and objects, clean-out and clean-up of: garages, attics, bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, closets, storage or yards and all areas of a clients' home or office. Then transporting the unneeded stuff being environmentally conscious to Goodwill and or to waste sites that reuse or recycling these unwanted items.
Listening to the clients thoughts and vision of how they want things organized is most important. I then explain my organizational ideas for the clients' items and together we make it happen! Once an agreement is made - the work begins, bringing positive order to the life of the client in their own living space and home!
Recommended Storage systems:
Organizing your own stuff is very difficult to even begin, much less accomplish even with good intentions - it never gets all done and causes ongoing stress.
Making a willful decision to hire a competent and caring person to do the job who is professional and respects your time, immediately brings a real feeling of relief and being overjoyed happens to you rather quickly!
After organization takes place, all of a sudden your life is void of clutter and disarray and life becomes clearer so you can function much better at all levels. Stress and anxiety levels go way down and you become more at peace in your space. You can actually locate and find stuff you want, rediscover things you thought you lost forever, decisively know you no longer need a bunch of stuff that is now gone to Goodwill, friends, or recycled - and you feel a sense of liberation from all that stuff! You smile and then "get on" with those hobbies, tasks, jobs, friends, places you want to go, and come home and feel welcomed instead of buried by it - when you walk in to your home.
It is a beautiful thing, something so basic as reorganizing your stuff for your life.
Dan will help you help yourself.
I spend time with you initially so we can talk, carefully map out a clear plan to help you decide what to keep or discard. The entire process of downsizing, organizing and re-compartmentalizing is made easy and efficient, versus not knowing where to start with the amount of things we all tend to accumulate as life goes by! Often times the accumulated stuff and clutter keep staring at you day after day, causing stress, no room for anything else you really want to keep and a house that is hard to navigate.
I am naturally organized and very efficient and especially love organizing a garage!
I've been organizing since I had my first rock collection at age 8. At 10 years old, I had a paper route and my first checking account. My Mom was a bookkeeper; her influence of organization was lasting in me, as she was by biggest supporter growing up. My Dad worked for Mutual of Omaha for 30 years. He was very effective and helpful with his clients. His follow through was something I modeled throughout my fitness career and now in my new business, All Points Organized! Thanks, Dan
