    ep 250: Finding Motivation at Work with Grace Treutel

    Hi Friends!
    Whether you are heading back into the office or on day 7,693,421 of working from home-finding motivation can be a struggle. 
    Studies show that when we lack motivation, our productivity decreases. 
    So the question becomes: “how do we find motivation?”
    To answer that question, I invited Grace Treutel to share some insight with us. Grace is the Manager of Culture at a rapidly growing eCommerce startup where she helps colleagues get more organized within their workflows and navigate company culture, which results in a healthier work environment. 
    She is also the host and producer of The Standard Office Procedures, a podcast that aims to help professionals grow and prosper through culture, communication, and candor. 
    On the personal side, Grace is a mom to two littles, so she knows what it’s like to have your motivation sucked out of you on a daily basis-jk!
    During our conversation, Grace walks us through some everyday struggles and shares some tactical steps that you can use in the office, at home, or in an academic setting (hello students!)
    I loved the part of our conversation when Grace talks about how we can show up for our coworkers or colleagues rather than waiting for them to ask for help (which is often hard to do). 
    Make sure to check out the links below for everything we talked about on the show.

    ep 249: Fall Organizing Checklist

    ep 249: Fall Organizing Checklist

    Hi Friends!
    When I was in my early 20’s I had a subscription to Martha Stewart Living. Each month when it arrived in the mail I would open it up and immediately flip to the monthly calendar of things to do. From changing out air filters, to checking your smoke detectors, I loved the actionable checklist she provided. Although I may not have been planting bulbs in my garden or harvesting berries to make homemade jam, I was all over the tasks that helped me to stay organized. 
    There’s no question that September is a busy month for all of us, and if we are not intentional, some important areas can easily fall through the cracks, leaving us unprepared when it really matters.
    On today’s podcast episode of This ORGANIZED Life I share my Fall Organizing Checklist which is a simple list of 10 specific tips to help you prepare for the home stretch of 2021.
    Check out the full episode above or wherever you listen to podcasts. You can also print a free copy of my Fall Organizing Checklist here .
    Happy Fall Y’all!

    ep 245: Health over Clutter with Noel Elie

    Hi Friends!
    Today we are talking about what happens when a health crisis causes you to get rid of everything you own.
    Joining me today is actress, entrepreneur and health advocate-Noel Ellie. Noel shares her story which includes putting her career on the back burner to care for her sick mom, and what she learned during that season of her life.
    Little did Noel know that a few years later she would be facing her own crippling illness that resulted in her having to get rid of 99% of her possessions.
    During our conversation we talked about:

    How she had to prioritize health over work
    Mourning the loss of material things
    What items were hardest to let go

    In the second half of the show we talk about what organization looked like for Noel while she was growing up and she shares some of her tips and strategies with us.
    I hope you find inspiration and connection during this episode
    Watch this episode.
