It's Time To Make Room For Clarity!

Hello Fellow Entrepreneurs!

How would you like to be more focused, more engaged, and more satisfied in your business? Well, on the 30th of each month, we’ll take a step back from our crazy day and get you “locked” into your passion, with solutions on this blog.

My name is Rick Woods. As a Professional Organizer, I help my clients “Make Room For Clarity”, by helping them get rid of the clutter that gets in their way. In this blog, we will go way beyond the physical clutter that sits in our office. We’ll also tap into the mental clutter that is holding us back from achieving greatness.

After working in the retail corporate industry for over 12 years, I decided to make a change. Too much travel and last minute marathon demands, became the “clutter” in my life. My wife and kids were home and I was constantly on the road. So I left that corporate world, focused on my family, and researched the Professional Organizing industry. After creating my company, The Functional Organizer, LLC, and building my client base, I joined many organizations: The National Association of Professional Organizers, Toastmasters, BNI, Various Chamber Events, and The Hartford Springfield Speakers Network. It was through these organizations, that I made connections with other hungry like-minded entrepreneurs.

I regularly appear on a daily local network television program called "Mass Appeal", providing tips to viewers on how to get more organized.

In addition to working with residential and business clients, I have also recently launched a podcast titled “Make Room For Clarity”. Each episode is available for free download in the iTunes store. This podcast dives into issues that effect our everyday lives at home and at work. Issues that go way beyond organizing. Recently published topics include Overeating Addiction, Clutter in our Communication, Corporate Clutter, and Organizing Kids for School. Future topics will cover Menu Planning, Toxic Hazards in our homes, and Suicide Prevention. The show focuses on helping you turn your negatives into positives, by getting rid of the clutter that gets in your way.  In the Fall, I will be releasing my new book titled, "Make Room For Clarity", which will focus on removing the overconsumption of stuff in our lives. I'll show you how to take control of your physical clutter and provide solutions on gaining clarity.
