Top 6 Areas People want Organized:  Office/Home Office, Kitchen, Closets, Master Bedroom, Garage, Attics and Basements and Laundry Rooms.

Getting Organized creates many benefits such as relieving stress and anxiety, having more useable space and having a general sense of control and calm.  When homes are organized and everyone has a place for their stuff, family life is happier and there is more free time for fun and relaxation.

Start small, a drawer or closet…then move to rooms that need the most help.  Create locker areas for member of the family, establish a ‘drop area’ for backpacks, wallets and purses.  Create a system for incoming paperwork (mail, bills, schedules, emails, etc).  Donate unused clothes and toys to local charities and clear out space!!  Create More Space Places!

Saint Louis Closet Co. trained designers can give you a free in-home estimate and help you get on your way to a more organized year!

Small Business Talk with Jennifer Williams

Small Talk on KTRS Tune into KTRS 550AM on The McGraw Milhaven Show to hear owner Jennifer Q. Williams talk Small Business.  Being an award-winning business leader in the St. Louis Business Community for over 20 years, Jennifer will talk Small Business!! Tips on getting your business started, turning an idea into a business, what tools you need to start, run and grown your Small Business.  According to SBA Small Businesses make up 99.7% of all employer firms.

10/17/13 #SMALLBIZTALK show tips:  Define your target customer – be specific!  Don’t just say “all women.”  Say “all women, ages 35-60, who own a home, live in the Metropolitan St. Louis Area, with a household income of over $60,000.”  This will allow you to better target your advertising and allow you to grow your product offerings to a specific market.  It also helps you keep on track with business plan, marketing plan and growth plans.  Create a BRAND…this does not mean design a logo – although having a logo is part of it.  A BRAND is the entire experience a customer has with your company from the beginning to end.  It includes everything from how you answer your phone to your employees uniforms and vehicles.  Your website, your logo, your stationary and business cards, your advertisements, the music played in your business, etc all work together to create and maintain your BRAND.

71% of Americans view small businesses more favorably than any other institution in America because they are seen as a positive influence on our country.  Why do people like  Small Business so much?

1.  Their services and products are often unique and their customers are very defined.

2.  Small Businesses are also often regarded as being involved with their local communities and give back.

3.  Small Businesses are agile and can change with the times quicker and adapt to the changing economy and customers needs faster than large businesses.

9/19/13 #SMALLBIZTALK show tips: Great overall resource, visit SBA.Gov for help and guidance for all small business questions.  A Small Business is a business that is privately owned and operated, with a small number of employees and relatively low volume of sales.  Government determines small based on industry, sales, etc.  Small Business Administration stats show 1/3 of all new businesses fail in first 2 years due to lack of funds, lack of planning, growing too fast and competition. Prevent failure by the following steps: Be clear on why you want to start a business, determine your type of business (ie: manufacturing or service), research and write a Business Plan, determine who your customers are, set in place financing, sales and marketing – get your customers.

Men Love Organization Too!

Tie Butlers

Don’t forget Dad on Father’s Day this year!  Men love organization too!  Whether it’s a new tie rack or a slide-out rack for his slacks, Dad will love the thought of an organized closet. Check out some organization tips from Esquire magazine.

For suits: Suit jackets spend much of their lives in the closet. And the best way to maintain their structure and shape is with hangers that mimic the slope and width of your own shoulders. To prevent any wrinkling, hang your suits, shirts, and trousers with some room between them.

For shirts: Even your shirt needs solid support to reduce stress on the seams, and it won’t get that from those paltry white wire hangers you get from the dry cleaner. Invest in a handful of sturdy wooden hangers and you and your shirts will look much better much longer.

For pants: A good trouser hanger maintains a sharp crease and causes as few wrinkles as possible at the fold. A felt-lined clamp hanger, or a felt-lined trouser bar accomplishes both.
