Today we’d like to introduce you to Robyn Reynolds.
Robyn, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Originally from Long Island, NY before I landing in Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Luckily for me and my clients I found a different path. I never knew that professional organizing was a career. Once I found out that it was a career, I joined NAPO, the National Association of Professional Organizers. It was about a year later that I actually started my business while I was working full time. Shortly thereafter I got laid off, this was during 2008, and I put all my energy into starting my business. And here we are 9 years later.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been far from a smooth road. I never thought I would have my own business so I first had to figure out what that meant and how to do that. I found a mentor, reached out to Score, and started networking. While figuring this all out I also start getting clients. That is the most challenging part as it is always a hustle.
Please tell us about Organize2Harmonize.
My company only does residential organization. Our services include decluttering, moves, home inventory, staging a home for sale, closet design and senior downsizing. We are most know for our decluttering and moves but we are quickly becoming the go-to for custom closets.
As a business owner I am most proud of that fact that I am actually doing this, making a living doing something I love. Some people are born entrepreneurs. This is something that was never on my radar so the fact that I am making living and supporting my family is a huge accomplishment for me.
Asking what sets us apart is such a hard question. All I know is that we always try to make the process fun by using humor. It helps to put the client at ease. Oftentimes the client will dread the process but by the time we have finished the session they realize that it wasn’t as bad as they thought. They even end up having fun. That’s the goal. Instead of them dreading the process we want the client to just have fun.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Hmmmm? As silly as it may sound I would have saved more money. It is very challenging in the beginning and not so easy getting clients. It would be very helpful to have as much money as possible when embarking on the unknown. Not all people are able to weather the storm.
