Professional organizer-client rapport is one of the cornerstones to successful organizing and productivity work and I couldn’t have dreamed up a more delightful or motivated contest winner. There was laughter, a surprise for me, and an ingenious tip I learned that I’m excited to share.
1. Laughter: We had a good laugh when we came across the “old as sin” note that had been stuck on a hard drive.
2. Surprise: The contest winner may have had the messiest desk in Silicon Valley, but she had the most organized membership and gift certificate holder I have seen in a very long time.
3. Ingenious tip for putting up posters without framing or damaging them: You will need 4 metallic pushpins and 4 very strong magnets for each poster:
Step 1: Place 4 pushpins directly into the wall on the corners of where the poster will be placed.
Step 2: Hold the poster up against the wall over the the pushpins.
Step 3: Place a magnet on top of each poster corner where each pushpin is.
Step 4: Stand back and admire your handiwork and artwork!
