Proud to say I am the 2011 National Association of Professional Organizers Los Angeles Green Award for Most Eco-Friendly Organizing Service award winner!
I want to thank EVERYONE who took a minute out of their lives to vote for me, offer me words of encouragement and/or congratulate me. Some of you had never met me, but were willing to support me! I won because you all supported me.
A list of those whom I have GREAT GRATITUDE for; words can never truly express how honored and blessed I feel:
My family (Big J, Jen Jen, John, Justin, Kristin, Clare, Max & Emma) & friends (too numerous to mention but I love you all) were wonderfully supportive and got out the vote!
My Grandmother Seibert for always believing in me and trusting I would find myself even when I didn’t. Sybil Rhodes for being like a second mother to me & being an example of the best way to live your life! If I live my life 1/100th of the way they have lived I will consider myself a success.
My clients who have trusted me to de-cluttering and organize them. I can truly say I have the best clients every and enjoy working with each one! As they transform their lives, I am transformed.
My brother Justin Seibert of Direct Online Marketing ( http://www.directom.com/) for all his advice, setting up my website, doing that SEO stuff I do not understand and continuing to be a huge source of knowledge—and most importantly father to the stars of some of videos–Clare, Max & Emma.
Angel Lebak of Assistant Angel ( http://virtualassistantsocialmedia.com/) for being the best social media virtual assistant ever. Being able to put someone in charge of a huge project and not have to think about it is a relief! Her social media campaign won this award for me! I completely trust her for business & personal advice and proud to call her a friend. What a great thing to have someone who believes in you those moments you doubt yourself!
Michele Little of One Chic Mama (http://www.onechicmama.com/) for styling me and finding me a dress I could “reuse”. More importantly she saw the beauty in me when I couldn’t see it in myself. Can’t wait for her to revolutionize women and how we view ourselves.
Phyllis Smith of A Younger You (http://www.ayoungeryounc.com/) for an acupressure facial treatment to put my best face forward! Raised an inch–now if she could only do to my breasts & butt! West Virginia gals rock it & look after each other!
Mara Cohen of Mara Cohen LHP Cosmetics (http://www.lhpcosmetics.blogspot.com/) for loaning me her gorgeous wrap and her bling bling bling! I felt like a million bucks.
Barry & Ellen Sherrill of Aim Group Two Promotional Products ( http://www.aimgrouptwo.com/) who made my reusable bags and go to the ends of the earth to find green products and have the best customer service ever!
Amy Shair of ReMax (http://www.amyshair.com/) for helping me shoot videos, giving me ideas, loaning me her Flip camera, having great knowledge for technical advice! Call Amy for your Shair of the Market–love that and have to say everytime I use her name!
Laura Poole of Archer Coaching ( http://www.archercoaching.com/) in helping me define my mission & vision for my work.
Michelle Gower of Gower Power ( http://gowerpower.com/) for kick ass press releases. Glad she will now have another one to do! Her wisdom for word press taught me that an e-mail signature can be soooo much more!
Marilyn Shannon ( http://www.reenchantplanetearth.com/) & my WPN Cary group: y’all my girls! (http://womenspowernetworking.com/north-carolina-raleigh-durhamtrian…) I am a success because of your support. Could not have done this without each & every one of you!
Jill Hively of Order up Organizing (http://www.orderuporganizing.com/) who campaigned for me as much as I did myself. How wonderful it is to have a colleague that supports you and knows that together we are truly stronger! What can I say? She is a West Virginia gal!
Christine Englebreacht The Total Spa Escape (http://www.thetotalspaescape.com/) for helping me with make up.
Pat Howlett Inside 919 (http://www.insidenetworx.com/) for giving me tons of advice for videos & content, and creating inside 919 for free to allow small business owners like me the chance to succeed. This is a true gift for our community.
Dave Silvestein of New Frontier Realty ( http://www.newfrontierrealty.net/) better known as Stinky to me, for sponsoring me i.e. used his valuable frequent flyer miles to get me a plane ticket, escorting me to two events, being my chauffer, housing & feeding me!
Carol Schwartz for all her business advice both personal & professional! I am blessed to have her in my life & proud to call her a friend!
Kerry Waite for nominating me!
Victor Hammer, who is my youngest & coolest client ever, & lent me his brand new flip video so I could record my event. In 20 years this kid will be doing something great—he is the best repurposer I know! Thanks to his mom Tina who is a wonderful client who has become a friend!
Apologies if I have forgotten anyone! Let me know if I did so I can correct.
