Interview & Feature Story of an Organization Expert – Me

I have some great news to share. I was recently interviewed by Homeyou, a great site, and resource for anyone seeking home improvement both large and small. At Homeyou their mission is to connect homeowners with local pros who understand how personal home really is. The interview and feature story of an organization expert – me, is a milestone for the Command Center. I was over the moon when I was approached to be interviewed as an organizational expert. Over the moon, I tell ya. However, I maintained my composer because I was aware that although I was interviewed, I was not guaranteed to be selected. Well, guess what!!!!! I was not only selected, I am featured. Whoo to the Hoo!!

I am happy and grateful today. The interview is in two parts. The Part I featured this week and Part II will be featured next week. I cannot thank Homeyou enough for considering me one of their experts.

Now let me say this, I am not excited about the photo, but when are we ever happy with a photo of ourselves? 🙂 Well I rarely am, but oh well, I can overlook that for this awesome opportunity.  Note to self; have a professional photo taken immediately. 🙂

Below is an excerpt from the interview and you can catch the interview in its entirety here. To The Command Center followers, this absolutely could not have happened without you; and I hope I have made you proud and happy to be a command center follower during the interview. Thank you each and every one for your support over the past year.

One other thing, I am also on the front page and they have even featured some of my projects and crafts/upcycles, in the Get Advice section of the Homeyou site. Check that out here.  As always, I want your feedback after you’ve checked out the interview. Leave your feedback in the comments section.

The Homeyou Interview Part I

Have you ever wanted to pick the brain of a professional organization expert? Now’s your chance! We’ve had the pleasure and honor of interviewing Clearissa Coward – blogger, mother, grandmother, and professional organizer. In Part I of our interview, Clearissa has shared with us some insider tips and tricks to start getting your home clutter-free and keeping it organized.

HY: In your blog “Clearissa Coward’s Command Center,” you share your view on healthy lifestyle, DIY, decor, and organization with the “Divinely Organized” section. On top of it, you’re a successful professional woman, wife, mother, grandmother and community worker. What keeps you motivated and inspired in your day-to-day work to accomplish all of that?

Clearissa: My nine-to-five can be hectic. Luckily, I work with some amazing people. That makes the day-to-day struggles of working for someone else tolerable and sometimes even enjoyable.

What motivates me is simple. I’m motivated by the joy of loving what I do. Organizing, DIY-ing, and upcycling are not work for me. They are my passion. And if I can help someone else feel the satisfaction of a well-organized and attractive space…well, that makes for a really good day.

HY: Were you always interested in organization? How did it change your life?

Clearissa: Yes! I’ve always been interested in organization and room refreshes. I do not say decorating because I am not a formally trained interior designer, but I like to think I do have a natural knack for putting a space together in a natural manner. I have organized, upcycled, and refreshed most of my friends’ homes as well as my own, and organization has always simply been a part of my DNA.

Love PM
