Being unorganized is not only stressful but can be costly for your business. Here to tell us how business owners can get a handle on their clutter and improve day-to-day operations is Heather Rogers, Owner of Simply Organized, a company dedicated to making your life easier through the power of organization.
We last spoke to Heather at the U.S. Chamber Small Business series where we found out a little about her business, and how she got her start. In this segment, we take a deep dive into the reasons behind disorganization, and how business owners can take a hold of organizing not only their workspaces but also their tasks and time.
According to Heather, the definition of being organized is knowing where your stuff is when you need it. You don’t need to be perfect. However, being prepared and planning ahead are huge parts of being organized and running a successful business. Maintaining your organization is the key to long-term success. We all want to avoid organization, but in addition to practical organization skills, Heather says having someone hold you accountable is also a great resource.
The number one issue Heather sees with clients is paper. It’s a time-consuming process that typically requires a thoughtful system, which usually means that it’s the last on the list for people to deal with in their day-to-day lives. Heather stresses you have to be self-motivated to stay organized. Choose a specific time every day to devote to organization and put it in your calendar.
