I'm super stoked to bring this episode to you which features my first ever professional organizing guest! (Other than my Sort and Sweet biz partner, Margaret, in episode two. Can't forget that chick).Laurie Palau is the owner of Simply B Organized and has been in the industry for the last decade. More recently, she has included speaking, coaching, podcasting, and writing to her resume (you can find her book "Hot Mess: A Practical Guide to Getting Organized on her website). And the thing that she's done that has had the most direct impact on my organizing business is her creation of the SBO Partner Program. The program is essentially an international, bad ass tribe of other organizers who help, support, refer, and lift each other up. The partners are in different stages of their businesses and come to the table with their own guidance, wisdom, and perspective. Being a part of a tribe such as this was absolutely instrumental in my early days as an entrepreneur, not knowing basically what in the world I was doing.Laurie and I chat about the importance of having a tribe, a community, a mentor, or even a coach as you navigate the tricky waters of entrepreneurship. Often, new business owners have to wear allll the hats and by having someone to lean on, it relieves at least a little of the stress.Take a listen and leave a review if you love it!You can follow Laurie here:Simply B Organized IG PageSimply B Organized WebsiteSimply B Organized FB PageThis Organized Life PodcastSBO Partner ProgramAnd if you wanna give me a follow:For home and organizing tips on the gram : sortandsweetFor biz and life organizing tips on the gram : maryccornettaSort and Sweet WebsiteOrganized Overall WebsiteAnd if you wanna work with me to organize you life overall : 1:1 Coaching Organized Overall Application FormPSST!
