Tell us about your business:
ORGANIZED CREATIVE DESIGN IS A BOUTIQUE RESIDENTIAL ORGANIZING FIRM SPECIALIZING IN DESIGNING BEAUTIFULLY CUSTOM ORGANIZED SPACES FOR BUSY FAMILIES
What brought you to do your business?
MY BUSINESS STARTED STARTED IN MY OWN HOME. I WAS HOSTING FRIENDS THE NIGHT ORGANIZED CREATIVE DESIGN WAS BORN. MY GIRLFRIENDS TOLD ME THAT I HAD A TALENT AND THEY WANTED THEIR HOME TO LOOK LIKE MY HOME. THEY ARE PART OF THE REASON I HAVE A BUSINESS TODAY
When did the idea of creating your business start? How long have you been in business?
IMMEDIATELY AFTER I WAS TOLD, NOT EVERYONE LIVES LIKE THIS. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF…EVERYONE SHOULD AND COULD. I CAN HELP!
O.C.D. HAS BEEN DOING BUSINESS AND GROWING SINCE 2016
What do you enjoy most about being an entrepreneur?
I ENJOY THAT I GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH OTHER FAMILIES TO CREATE A DREAM THAT BECOMES REALIZED THROUGH MY DESIGNS, ALL WHILE MAKING MY OWN SCHEDULE AND BUILDING A BRAND. GIRL BOSS 100%
You work full time somewhere else as well, Could you tell us a little bit about that?
I AM A FULL-TIME DOMESTIC ENGINEER. I MANAGE MY KIDDOS, MY HUSBANDS BUSINESS AND ALL AROUND LIFE!
KATIE BETH IS ALMOST 5 AND JON DAVIS IS 3.5. THEY ARE 17 MONTHS APART AND THEY BRING LIFE TO EACH AND EVERY DAY
What is your favorite part about what you do?
THE TRANSFORMATION AT THE END. I RECENTLY HAD A CLIENT WHERE I WAS IN HER HOME FROM THE TIME SHE LEFT FOR WORK TIL SHE GOT HOME. SHE ARRIVED BACK AND HER KITCHEN AND PANTRY WERE COMPLETELY MADE OVER. SHE WAS IN HEAVEN. SHE STATED…* I DONT EVEN RECOGNIZE MY KITCHEN ANYMORE*
What does the future look like for you and your business?
HONESTLY, I AM VERY HAPPY WHERE I AM. I HAVE A FEW MINI GOALS, FOR EXAMPLE, GROWING MY FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM. BUT I AM AS BUSY AS I WANT TO BE AND I AM COMPLETE WITH ALL MY CLIENTS NOW. GOD IS BLESSING ME AND WILL CONTINUE TO BLESS ME WHEN HE IS READY
What advice would you give to others that want to start something new?
GO FOR IT AND DONT GIVE UP. THERE HAVE BEEN UPS AND DOWNS, AS THERE IS IN BUSINESS, BUT THE UPS MAKE THE DOWNS SEEM TRIVIAL AND THEY PROPEL YOU TO KEEP GOING. ID ALSO SAY GET CONNECTED WITH OTHER MOMS. It’S AMAZING WHAT THE WOMEN IN THIS COMMUNITY ARE CAPABLE OF AND HOW MUCH THEY CAN BE A RESOURCE FOR YOU AS MUCH AS YOU CAN BE FOR THEM
Any advice for juggling all the things in daily life?
TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. RELAX AND ENJOY THE RIDE. LIFE IS TOO SHORT AND PRECIOUS TO STRESS AND GUESS WHAT… YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR MIND WHENEVER YOU WANT. YOU ARENT MARRIED TO ONE WAY SO CHANGE IT UP, MAKE YOUR OWN RULES AND LISTEN TO YOUR HEART AND INSTINCTS.
